"Infinitely positive" Han Se Kyung (Moon Geun Young) is a fledgling fashion designer with big dreams and an even bigger ambition to succeed. She enters every design contest possible, cheerily dusting off rejections and the accompanying hardships, but it all pays off. Or so she thinks. Her dream job ends up being a rude awakening when she realizes she's been hired as the go-to assistant of the company president's wife — the woman who was once her high school nemesis! The tide turns when Se Kyung resolves to move up the social echelon by marrying into a rich family and becoming a "Cheongdam-dong" daughter-in-law (aka trophy wife). Se Kyung must confront her innermost desires: will she hang up her dreams to dry, or does money really mean everything? -dramafever

    Moon Geun Young to return in new series Cheongdam-dong Alice


    Actress Moon Geun Young will return to the small screen through the TV series Cheongdam-dong Alice.

    On August 23, Moon’s agency, Namoo Actors, said, “Moon decided to appear on SBS’s series Cheongdam-dong Alice.”

    It has been two years since she appeared on her last TV series Mary Stayed Out All Night.

    Moon will play the role of a positive girl named Han Se Kyung, who lives her life fiercely with the motto, “Effort makes my place.”

    In the series, Moon wins several contests and enters the fashion company. But she ends up going on errands instead of designing clothes and it makes her to look back on her own life.

    Writers Kim Ji Woon and Kim Jin Hee, who wrote scripts for the series The Great Queen Seondeok and A Deep-Rooted Tree, worked together for the series and drew a lot of attention.

    People responded: “I can’t wait to see her TV series.” “I’m happy to hear that she will appear on the series.” “It has been so long since she appeared on her last series.”

    Moon Geun-young and Park Shi-hoo team up in rom-com


    Okay, these are not two actors I’d peg for a weekend drama, but I AM suddenly a lot more interested in Alice in Cheongdam-dong, a weekend romantic comedy that has just secured Moon Geun-young as the leading lady and Park Shi-hoo as her love interest. I KNOW! Who’s excited?

    The drama, based on a novel titled Cheongdam-dong Audrey, features an “infinitely positive” heroine, Se-kyung, who lives by the motto “Hard work creates your success.” So far, so good.

    The title is a riff on Alice in Wonderland, with Se-kyung playing the newcomer to this strange, insular world of designer clothes and consumerism that is Cheongdam-dong, Seoul. Okay, I’m still with you. Cheongdam-dong has a very specific image, and I can see how it could be cute to have a drama’s exploring the character and quirks of the locale.


    Se-kyung is a talented young designer who wins a number of contests and gets hired at an apparel design company, only to find herself relegated to errand girl for the boss’s wife. To make things worse, that hoity-toity wife was once her high school classmate, who was way worse a student than Se-kyung.

    We don’t yet have a lot of info about Park Shi-hoo’s character, but it seems he’ll be a president of a clothing shop. It sounds like the basis of a standard Cinderella setup, but with these actors I’m sincerely hoping there’s a lot more to it than Star In My Heart Redux.

    Moon’s last two dramas have been pretty spectacularly disappointing for me, but she’s always a boon to any project — she’s such a great actress regardless of her age, but especially so considering it. It’s too bad Cinderella’s Sister dropped a PD and went so angst-mopey in its second half, and that Mary Stayed Out All Night fired a writer and went from boring to insane. But she was wonderful throughout despite it all. Meanwhile, Park Shi-hoo really turned it up for his last drama series, The Princess’s Man, which netted him some awards and a nice big boost in popularity (not that he was so lacking in it before).

    Alice in Cheongdam-dong is written by the scripters behind Tree With Deep Roots and Queen Seon-deok in what I assume will be a big departure from their epic sageuk background. It’ll follow Five Fingers and plans to premiere later this year.

    Though am not quite sure with the plot of Cheongdam-dong Alice... I'll give her my full support! plus She'll be with Park Shi Hoo anyway. I've always wanted her to work with matured actors aside from my young biases.  

    Im just so happy to be seeing Moon again!! yeaay! And Park Shi Hoo, I adored him since Prosecutor Princess! :D

    Moon Geun Young To Make Drama Comeback With “Cheongdam-dong Alice”


    Moon Geun Young is officially making her comeback to the Korean drama industry.

    On August 23, Namoo Actors revealed that Moon Geun Young will be featured as the lead role in the upcoming SBS special drama, “Cheongdam-dong Alice.” She comes back after her last project, “Mary Stayed Out All Night,” and a two-year hiatus.

    Moon Geun Young will play Han Se Kyung, a motivated young woman who finally breaks through tough competition in the fashion industry after countless number of art contest submissions. However, once hired by a company, she is limited to running petty errands and hardly gets a chance to prove her real talents. The drama charts the character’s difficult journey in securing a place in the real world, while she encounters the true love of her life.

    The scriptwriting has been handed to two famed screenwriters, Kim Ji Woon and Kim Jin Hee. They have earned recognition through traditional dramas, such as MBC “Queen Seonduk” and SBS “Tree of Deep Roots,”

    “Cheongdam-dong Alice” will air after a complete run of “Five Fingers.” Moon Geun Young will start filming her parts in October.
