‘Cheongdamdong Alice’, Moon Geun Young shocked by So Yi Hyun’s reversal of fortune
Moon Geun Young on ‘Cheongdamdong Alice’ was blown away when reunited with So Yi Hyun.
On the very first episode of the SBS weekend drama ‘Cheongdamdong Alice’, which aired on December 1st, GN Group Intern Han Se Kyung (played by Moon Geun Young) was shocked to find out the identity of Seo Yoon Joo (played by So Yi Hyun), a wife of upper management member.
Despite the financial hurdles, Han Se Kyung has always worked hard and finally made it as an intern at GN Group, well known not to hire anyone who has not studied abroad. However, the only responsibility that Han Se Kyung was given as an intern was to run errands for the Mrs. The person who selected Han Se Kyung was also the wife of the upper management member.
Han Se Kyung finally found a job in 3 years and has been leading a difficult life with her boyfriend who has a huge debt for his mother’s hospital charges and the parents who are struggling with the mortgage for the apartment. Han Se Kyung was shocked to find a completely different world, running shopping errands for the wife of the company’s upper management member.
Han Se Kyung realized the position she was in and it dawned on her that it would be difficult for her to become a designer no matter how hard she tries. Then Seo Yoon Yoo, who had not appeared in front of Han Se Kyung previously, finally made her self known. The wife of he upper management member happened to be Han Se Kyung’s high school friend.
Seo Yoon Joo went as far as making her boyfriend work on a painting to win a contest when she was in high school but still lost the first place to Han Se Kyung. Seo Yoon Joo was a typical Doenjang girl who Han Se Kyung gave not much credit to, so Han Se Kyung was that much more shocked by the reversal of fortune. (Doenjang girl = a term referring to women who are addicted to luxury and chase vanity without working on their own merit.)
With Han Se Kyung’s face in complete shock at the revelation, the ending of the first episode hinted that Han Se Kyung might become a Doenjang girl provoked by Seo Yoon Joo’s transformation.

day to hand out persimmons to everyone on the set. Everyone on set was
touched when they found out that persimmons were hand-picked by Moon
Geun Young’s parents. The gift was delivered from actress’ hometown, and
her grandmother peeled each one individually.
The staff continued that Moon Geun Young gives out handful of candies
and other treats to all members, “Moon Geun Young says she is grateful
and appreciate everything we do for her. All staffs are very touched.”

strives to live as a wealthy Chungdamdong house wife. During her pursuit
of wealth, she is to understand the true meaning of love and a happy
marriage. The drama starring Moon Geun Young and Park Shi Hoo will air on December 1.

Seung Jo (Park Si Hoo) and So Yoon Ju (So Yi Hyun) was dramatised.
Cha Seung Jo, President of the luxury goods distribution company
Artemis, was recalling the breakup with his former lover So Yoon Ju, now
the wife of GN clothing company boss, in Paris in 2006.
Cha Seung Jo had a row with his parents who opposed his relationship
with So Yoon Ju because of her poor background.. Cha Seung Jo said to So
Yoon Ju: “Because of you I have abandoned everything. I love you. I
have even abandoned my family without hesitation.” But in the end So
Yoon Ju still left him.
So Yoon Ju said: “Is this love? Love is not abandoning anything; it
is keeping everything. Why give up anything? To me it is
just business.” After leaving Cha Seung Jo, So Yoon Ju became the wife
of GN clothing representative Shin Min Hyuk (Kim Seung Min.)
Cha Seung Jo hid his identity and relished his reunion with So Yoon Ju, with an intention of revenge.
