Because This Is My First Life is a heartwarming Korean drama that aired in 2017 on TVN. The show stars Jung So-Min, Lee Min-ki, and Esom in lead roles. It is directed by Park Joon-hwa and written by Yoon Nan-joong. The show follows the lives of three young people - Nam Se-hee (Lee Min-ki), Yoon Ji-ho (Jung So-Min), and Woo Soo-ji (Esom) - as they navigate through the complexities of life, love, and relationships.

Nam Se-hee is an introverted and reserved software designer who values his privacy and independence. He lives alone in a small apartment and has no plans of getting married, despite societal pressure. Yoon Ji-ho is a struggling writer who works as a freelance copywriter to make ends meet. She is cheerful, optimistic, and dreams of finding true love. Woo Soo-ji, on the other hand, is a successful career woman who is jaded about relationships after going through a series of failed romances.

The three characters meet when Ji-ho rents a room in Se-hee's apartment. They soon become friends and share their problems, hopes and dreams. Ji-ho is initially taken aback by Se-hee's aloofness and indifference towards her, but she soon realizes that there is more to him than meets the eye. She discovers that Se-hee is a kind and caring person who has been hurt in the past and has built walls around himself to protect himself from further pain.

As Ji-ho and Se-hee's friendship grows, they both begin to question their beliefs about marriage and relationships. They start to realize that perhaps being together could bring them the happiness they have been searching for. However, they soon discover that life is not always that simple. They have to navigate through various obstacles such as societal norms, family expectations, and their own personal fears to be together.

Meanwhile, Soo-ji's rocky relationship with her boyfriend begins to crumble, and she starts to realize that her career is not the only thing that matters in life. She begins to question her priorities and starts to reconsider her stance on relationships. She finds herself drawn towards Sang-gu, a childhood friend, who has always been there for her and who deeply cares for her.

The show explores various themes such as love, friendship, career, family, and societal pressures. It also touches upon the changing attitudes towards marriage and relationships in modern Korean society. The characters are all flawed, realistic, and relatable, and their struggles are depicted with great sensitivity and nuance. The show also features a strong supporting cast including Kim Ga-eun, Park Byung-eun, Kim Min-seok, and Moon Hee-kyung, who add depth and complexity to the story.

In conclusion, Because This Is My First Life is a beautiful and heartwarming show that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside. It is a refreshing take on the romantic comedy genre and is a must-watch for anyone who loves a good love story.
