“Our Blues” premiered on tvN on April 9 and is streamed on Netflix. The drama tells “the comforting story of people who are faced with different aspects of their lives peak, bottom, or beginning. An omnibus drama based on warm, lively Jeju Island and its rough, cold sea with ordinary but different people and their beautiful lives.”

The drama stars “Squid Game” actor Lee Byung-hun, “Hometown Cha-cha-cha” actress Shin Min-a and her real-life boyfriend, actor Kim Woo-bin, Cha Seung-won, “Parasite” actress Lee Jung-eun, Han Ji-min and Uhm jung-hwa.

According to Yam Yam Entertainment, the executive producer of the OST, “Jimin’s soft vocal tone and Ha’s attractive, engaging tone are weaved together in this song and their harmony made it even more beautiful,” according to the Korea Times.

Jimin and Ha Sung-woon’s song was produced by Song Dong-woon whose song credits include “Beautiful” for the 2016 drama “Goblin:The Lonely and Great God.”

Song Dong-woon said, “I’ve gone through countless songs to find the one that suits Jimin and Ha Sung-woon’s voices and ‘Our Blues,’ and found an excellent song to go with the series.”

“With You” lyrics (from Genius.com)

[지민, 하성운 “With you” 가사]

[Verse 1: JIMIN, HA SUNG WOON]

I wanna be with you

And I wanna stay with you

Just like the stars shining bright

You’re glowing once more

Right here beside you, I’m still

Walking wherever you go

You will live forever in me

Breathing deeply, within me

[Chorus: JIMIN, HA SUNG WOON]

Just take it all

I’m nothing without your love

I promise I’ll never leave your love

My heart is beating ’cause of you

Forever and ever, and ever

Only you can take my heart

Dear my love, love, love

I wanna stay with you

[Verse 2: HA SUNG WOON, JIMIN]

추억은 늘 여기 마음이란 방에

너와의 얘기들로 가득 차 있어

언제부터였는지 나도 잘 모르지만

너에게 말하고 싶어 나의 모든 얘기를

[Chorus: All, JIMIN]

Just take it all

I’m nothing without your love

I promise I’ll never leave your love

My heart is beating ’cause of you

Forever and ever, and ever

Only you can take my heart

Dear my love, love, love

I wanna stay, tore my heart

[Outro: JIMIN]

Now I’m in the dark

Will we meet in our dreams

Breaking my heart

Here we are apart

I wanna stay near you
