BRIEF CHARACTERS DESCRIPTION

Lee Jung Jae 이정재 | Character: Kim Ji Sung (33)
Government official, in charge of Incheon Airport personnel.
The airport is his "frontier"

Originally possessing a passionate and sentimental personality, because of his profession, he cannot leave tension and pressure aside even for a moment.
As a government official, he takes care of all matters related to preserving the peace within the airport: He handles issues involving terror, industrial espionage, hijacking airplanes, hostage situations, narcotics, North Korean defectors in disguise, medical quarantines, smuggling intelligence for domestic crime syndicates, forged passports, cyber-terror.

With keen powers of observation and judgment, he acts quickly to ensure no trouble arises. He isn't the type to compromise the system and logic of things merely believing that justice will be followed. In order to achieve his aim, he'll do everything in his power, even disobeying orders, so he's always running into problems, big and small.

Because he couldn't handle a painful farewell, he volunteered to go to the Middle East as a "black-suited" agent. Exercising harsh discipline participating in turbulent and dangerous missions, he wanted to forget everything. However, upon returning to his home country after three years, he's thrown into chaos when he re-encounters his old love.

Though he can't help but conflict with the airport employees for his work's sake, as his innately warm, bright disposition begins to come out, they become a family.

Although he clashes sharply with the Operations Headquarters Chief Han Do Kyung, as they experience danger together, they build up a strong trust and confidence between them. Seeing such a steadfast and strong woman faced with confusion because of a younger sibling, he finds himself moved with compassion... But even as their attachment and familiarity grows, that woman cannot sense his love for her even in her dreams.


Choi Ji Woo 최지우 | Character: Han Do Kyung (31)
Incheon Airport Operations Headquarters Section Chief
The airport is her "haven"/"refuge"

Has authority over the administration of airport operations. A beautiful professional, she speaks five languages; her judgments are cool-headed, decisive.
On the outside, it looks like she wouldn't even bleed one drop if you pricked her, but her heart is unexpectedly generous and deep. However, when she's alone, she's assailed with pity and loneliness. She bears a deep hurt from her youth.

With her elegant appearance and rational manner, she gives off the slight impression of being a veteran at romance. In truth, she's had several romances in the past. The problem is, she's never experienced a love to cause her pain, or make her act foolish. She thinks those passionate romances in movies or novels are simply fiction, and sees her friends' or colleagues' experiences as mere exaggeration or silly attachments.

However, one man begins to stir up unfamiliar emotions in her. Although she serves in an airport overflowing with meetings and farewells, she finds the idea of meeting and parting frightening, and thus fears genuine communication with other people, and has built up a wall around her... but because of unrequited love for one man, everything is shaken. Of all the people in the world, it's a man she works with, and still more dangerous, he's a government agent. Encountering love and farewell with Ji Sung, she learns how to love herself, and communicate with the world.

As two women working in the airport, she feels a sense of solidarity with the airport hospital doctor Myung Woo, and builds up confidence with her. However, learning that she was Ji Sung's old love throws her into confusion. Even with this complication between friendship and love, they come to treat one another with respect and sincerity.


Lee Jin Wook 이진욱 | Character: Kang Ha Joon (31)
Airport Administration Team Manager
Airport is his "battle turf"

Quick-tempered with a habit of talking aggressively, he's a passionate and deep-hearted man. At the airport, he watches over the several thousand closed-circuit security televisions, managing all incidents that arise.

Running up and down endlessly between the land and air sides, like a bulldozer he works to resolve all complications and problems. Because of the nature of his work, his personality is hardly pleasant. Although day after day is met with constant stress, still, he enjoys his work.

He becomes a firm source of refuge for Do Kyung. But, his feelings for Do Kyung become more and more complicated. As workplace superior and childhood friend, and also an unrequited love, he doesn't know how his relationship with this one woman became so complicated.


Moon Jung Hee 문정희 | Character: Seo Myung Woo (31)
Airport Hospital Doctor. Ji Sung's former girlfriend.

A general medical examiner at the airport hospital, she also performs exams on emergency patient cases in airplanes during flight, as well as quarantine inspections. Without participating in the warzone-like emergency rooms, she's become a determined veteran in the art of medicine. When she takes off her doctor's gown, she exudes a soft, feminine appeal.

In her days as an emergency room intern, during her most difficult times she met a patient, Ji Sung, and the two passionately fell in love, but they ended up separating. Upon finding out that Ji Sung has returned to Korea, she leaves the university hospital she was working at and volunteers to work at the airport emergency facility. She acts coolly to Ji Sung after their three-year separation, but her feelings of love return to her vividly.

Although she wants to restore their love again, they've come too far. Also, he now has a young, intelligent, woman next to him, a woman who doesn't tremble in fear like herself. Han Do Kyung stands by his side.

She finds herself mixed up in both her friendship and jealousy with Do Kyung.


Kim Jun Ho | Character: No Tae Man
Mayor of Incheon International Airport Administration - Headquarters Environment Improvement Team.

He, aiming at world's best cleanliness Airport, sets atmospheres of the drama which seems to become comparatively heavy to lighter and it is the general person who comes to keep the balance.

    ^ Thanks for the latest update on Air City, yeohweping

    I'm glad that CJW will star in this drama. It appears to be an exciting and ambitious project. Is Air City going to be a 60 eppies drama as originally reported? Is Jiwoo going to be in one of the several parts? Is Ko So young still going to star in one of the chapters? I hope to see more updates and confirmations soon. This is exciting!!!

    Hallyu Heroine Returns With New Drama

    By Chung Ah-young
    Staff Reporter

    image

    Actress Choi Ji-woo, popular in Japan where she is affectionately called "Ji-woo Hime," (Princess Ji-woo), is coming back to her Korean fans.

    She will perform in the MBC drama, "Air City" that will air in May and June, breaking a three-year hiatus.

    Her last performance on television was in the SBS drama, "Stairway to Heaven" three years ago, in which she starred with actor Kwon Sang-woo.

    She will play a heroine, "Han Do-kyong," an aspiring executive at an airport corporation who speaks five foreign languages. The heroine suffers a trauma involving her family.

    "We've decided that Choi is appropriate for the role," said HB Entertainment, which is involved in the production.

    The story revolves around various incidents at the airport such as drug smuggling and passport counterfeiting.

    Actor Lee Jung-jae is a strong candidate to be Choi's counterpart, according to HB Entertainment. Shooting will begin early this year and will be broadcast on weekends on MBC in May and June.

    Choi has a large fanbase in Southeast Asia including Japan because she co-starred with actor Bae Yong-joon, better known as "Yonsama" to Japanese fans, in "Winter Sonata" in 2002, which was a smash hit in Asian countries.

    Choi also starred in "Everybody Has Secrets," acting with Lee Byung-hun. Her roles in "Beautiful Days" (2001), "Winter Sonata" (2002) and "Stairway to Heaven" (2003) boosted her popularity throughout Asia.

    I am already excited to see this. I love Choi Ji Woo and am really happy that she will lead us to hopefully another great drama to watch. I am looking forward to CJW's new drama.

    Much older cast with a lot more experience. I like it, though I do hope they don't keep it at 60 eps.

    I'm confused. Didn't this drama aired already? Is CJW gonna be in Air City Part 2 or something? Hmmm...

    Anyways, I like that she's back. All her dramas have been successful. image

    Me too, I can't wait to see her back in action.......she's been gone for so long and it's time for her to return to where she's really good at, ACTING of course! I don't mind the 60 episodes because I will get to see her most of the time, but it may be quite a long drama for some of you folks out there. You know some dramas can go up to as long as 70 or 80 episodes, so I don't see why we can't have her in 60 episodes. It maybe much stress at times with running around in the airport, dealing with trauma of family issues, having to learn 5 different languages is a tough job, but no matter what happens, she will make it. I am sure she can handle it well with great pride and hard work.

    Again, I am just very Happy that I will be seeing her again in her upcoming drama. I hope to see a HAPPY ending.

    If anybody knows the links to get all the episode guides and or OST from "Air City", please let me know. Thank you kindly!

    Can't wait to see Choi Ji Woo again.
    Also Lee Jung Jae is a really good actor.

    I dont mind about 60 eps long..as long the writer smart enough to keep the story interesting..
    Perhaps Jiwoo will take part on the first part (20 eps or less)..but i hope she will take a part in all eps

    As long as Choi Ji Woo is here, may it be Sappy or Happy ... just count me 'IN' everyone ! image

    Hmm.. looks like JiWoo is in another mature role. Hope we all get to see her throughout the drama.

    One question, everyone....is this the very same LJJ who gave us image " IL MARE"?

    Does anyone have any news or captures regarding the shooting of this drama yet?
    ( image Hee.hee.. guess I am getting kinda anxious )

    Special thanks to ay_link (for creating this thread), yeohweping & rubie for sharing the news & updates.

    Look forward to more news gals ! image

    Hi puppyiz, good to read your comments. I can't wait for the series to start as well. I hope everything pushes through for the main leads especially. I adore CJW in Beautiful Days and I like the plot which is something dynamic & not the typical romantic type (hopefully). An LJJ... what can I say... he's an all time favourite along with LBH. It's really exciting that he's been strongly recommended/mentioned for the lead role in Air City. Like many others, we can't wait to watch LJJ on the small screen... the last drama he did was in 1998, like... 9 years ago. Though he had been offered various drama leading roles (with very high fee), he had famously turned down and decline all. So, it'll be something to really look forward to if he's indeed going to be in the series.

    To answer your question, yes... this is the very same Lee Jung Jae who gave us Il Mare. His latest movie (as he's more into movies, that's why we don't see him in dramas) was of course, Typhoon. I just can't wait to see the chemistry he'll develop with CJW in the upcoming drama if all goes well. One thing for sure, in terms of age and height.. the two could complement each other perfectly and will definitely look gorgeous and very charismatic in formal attire or suits. With plots and storyline written by credible scriptwriters of Joo Mong, All In, etc... we hope that the series will be a hit as well.

    Btw, here are two more updates posted at the News thread on CJW, courtesy yeohweping (oops, it's already been posted) and CindyW88. The first update on LJJ was actually translated to English by CindyW88, from the Korean news updates. As the series is scheduled to air only in May, don't think there'll be much updates or pics (yet)... probably not till March or April. Although, the leads seem 90% confirmed, we can't really be sure. Until there's a media conference to introduce the drama + cast, anything can change from now till then. Even when the cast is already confirmed, things can still be adjusted. Let's just hope that everything goes well, ok. image

    Hope we'll see ay_link soon to update the info of the thread, too... the threadmistress is currently busy in the excellent Lovers drama thread. image
