Romance thriller 'Misty,' enthralling story of success, unpretentious love

By Woo Jae-yeon


SEOUL, Jan. 31 (Yonhap) -- For many South Korean TV drama viewers, the combination of two veteran actors -- Kim Nam-joo and Ji Jin-hee -- as a problematic married couple could be appealing enough for them to sit and watch their new series.


Actress Kim, nicknamed the "queen of ratings" because of the high popularity of every TV series she is in, returns to the small screen for the first time in six years with JTBC's new romance thriller, "Misty."


"This script is exactly the one I have been waiting for," Kim said at a press conference to promote the series in Seoul on Wednesday.


"The character Go Hye-ran was surprisingly similar to my young self in that she is so desperate to become successful. I was confident I could portray Go well, as I saw myself in that role."


The actress was frank about how much she sympathized with the character.


"The character reminded me of when I was young. (Like Go,) I had an unhappy childhood. When I'd just started my career, I recklessly went after money and success."

The romantic thriller revolves around popular anchorwoman Go, who does whatever it takes to maintain her fame and success. But her life begins a downward spiral after she is named a person of interest in a murder case. Her husband, Kang Tae-wook, played by Ji Jin-hee, the star of the popular period drama "Jewel in the Palace," comes to her rescue by defending her as her lawyer.


The actor is expected to play a faithful husband with unconditional love -- the kind of character he is best known for.


"Kang promised his wife that he will help her achieve success no matter what," Ji said. "It is the way he loves her."


Producer Mo Wan-il said the names of the two actors naturally came up while he was discussing the potential cast with the scriptwriter.


"It was a very rare experience that we named the same two actors simultaneously. It was as if the writer wrote the story while having them already in mind," he said.


Go is a self-made career woman who has been in the most sought-after position at a network for seven years. She married public defender Kang who is from an influential family.


Outwardly she looks confident and self-assured, with fame, money and a happy family. But in reality, she is constantly on edge and fearful of losing things she has achieved.


"As the title 'Misty' suggests, the drama looks into the truth of life shrouded in uncertainty. The cast members are really doing their best to tell the real story and feelings as sincerely as possible," the producer said.


"Beyond passionate romance, I would like to depict unpretentious love, be it a married couple's love or that of an extramarital affair," he said, adding "This is more than just a gripping story."


The series is set to premiere at 11 p.m. on Friday.

“Go-to” actors Ji Jin Hee and Kim Hyun Joo will reunite in a new drama.


JTBC’s new drama Undercover (literal translation) announced that Ji Jin Hee and Kim Hyun Joo have confirmed their appearances.


Based of the BBC series of the same name, Undercover depicts the story of Han Jung Hyun (Ji Jin Hee), who has been hiding his identity for a long time, and Choi Yeon Soo (Kim Hyun Joo), a civil-rights attorney who became the first head of the Senior Civil Servant Corruption Investigations Unit for justice. The two will face a massive force that holds and shakes the entire country in the name of benefits. Attention is focusing on their fierce battle to protect their love and justice.


Director Song Hyun Wook, who was loved for detailed directing in dramas The Beauty Inside and Another Miss Oh, and writers Baek Chul Hyun, Song Ja Hoon and Jung Hye Eun, joined forces. Also, the reunion of Ji Jin Hee and Kim Hyun Joo in about 4 years since I Have a Lover is already raising the expectations to the fullest.


Ji Jin Hee will play Han Jung Hyun, an agent at the Agency for National Security Planning (ANSP), who has been hiding his identity for a long time. Having been selected to join the ANSP while attending the police academy, he was on a roll with his extraordinary agility and guts until he met Choi Yeon Soo during a top-secret mission. Wanting to be a part of her life, he drops everything and starts living under a false identity. However, when his wife Choi Yeon Soo was nominated for the first head of the Senior Civil Servant Corruption Investigations Unit, his life covered with secrets is caught up in an uncontrollable whirlwind.

Kim Hyun Joo will lead the play by playing Choi Yeon Soo, a civil-rights attorney who has lived for justice and truth. In recognition of her lifelong beliefs and abilities, she was nominated as the first head of the Senior Civil Servant Corruption Investigations Unit and faced with the shocking truth.


Meanwhile, JTBC’s Undercover will premiere in the first half of 2021.
