While handsome and good at his work, he finds himself unsuccessful at love and work. Woo-min “grows and develops once he learns about love and realizes his dreams.”

Meanwhile, Chae stars as Pyo Ji-eun, section chief of a luxury brand promotion agency. Ji-eun’s childhood dreams have come true, and Chae describes her character as someone who is “very passionate.”

Where have fans seen Choi Min-ho and Chae Soo-bin before?

Seeing Korean actors in new leading roles for K-dramas often motivates fans to scale back and remember where they know them. Choi is well-known for more than his acting career. Known under the mononym Minho, Choi made his grand debut in the 2nd generation K-Pop boy group Shinee. The group became a global pheromone that helped define the K-Pop industry.

In 2010, Choi debuted as an actor and became known for his role in the ‘Slice of Life’ K-drama My First Time in 2015. He then starred in the historical K-drama Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth. The idol and actor then made popular guest appearances in Lovestruck in the City and Yumi’s Cells as Yu-mi’s first crush.

Actor Chae made her mark as an actor in the 2016 historical romance Love in the Moonlight. She then starred in Strongest Deliveryman before taking the lead role in one of K-drama’s popular romances, I’m Not a Robot.

When will ‘The Fabulous’ K-drama air on Netflix?

While Choi and Chae gave fans a sneak peek of The Fabulous, the K-drama is set to premiere on Nov. 4 on Netflix. Fans will have to wait and see as the number of episodes in the season is unknown.
