@andra3 as far as i know writer LKH always make her male character sick, she never did female (cmiiw) or at least not to the point of sick to death. i'm sorry i love you, innocent man, thank you, uncontrollably fond all were LKH's work and all of them got it's male sick whether main (lead) or not hahaha. LKH likes to make her female character strong and likeable. not a fan of suzy's acting but i think she did well in UF (i don't know if it's hers or her character in the drama). so i hope HJW too this time! can't wait!!!


Not all. Her works also touches healing melodrama like Thank You (which is one of my top favorite, a drama about HIV), Innocent Man (revenge), Wonderful Days(family drama). So I am hopeful that this one will be more of family reconciliation and rekindling romance.

First teaser for JTBC’s Chocolate with Ha Ji-won, Yoon Kye-sang

by tccolb


A new video teaser has been released for JTBC drama Chocolate, featuring lead actors Ha Ji-won (Hospital Ship) and Yoon Kye-sang (The Good Wife).

The story of Chocolate is centered around the two characters, who run into each other at a hospice and develop a connection through cooking and food. Their personalities are contrasts, with Ha Ji-won playing fiery chef Moon Cha-young and Yoon Kye-sang playing the aloof neurologist Lee Kang. However, as they learn more about each other, they discover commonalities in their past experiences. The two gradually fall in love through the solace and encouragement that they find in one another, and they’re able to heal and move on from old emotional scars.

The newly released teaser starts with Ha Ji-won upset and standing by a house outside at night. There is a quick shot of a white plate bearing the word “Ever” written in chocolate powder before it cuts away to a landscape of water. The text on the screen reads, “There was a time that I lost my way.” In voice-over, Ha Ji-won explains: “When it hurts so much inside that I can’t breathe, I eat chocolate.” We briefly see a pair of hands preparing chocolate in a bowl and it cuts to Ha Ji-won looking off in the distance. As the camera pans across a peaceful view of the town, Yoon Kye-sang replies: “I don’t eat chocolate.”

Cut to an explosion and a thick cloud of dust. Yoon continues, “I liked it when I was young, but, at some point, I just, I just stopped eating it.” As he speaks, there is a quick sequence of shots showing the sea, tree leaves, an injured face, a boy making something with chocolate, Yoon Kye-sang crying, and someone in a hospital bed. It cuts away to a reflection of two people sitting on a bridge with the caption: “In an endless pit of despair, I was met with longing.” A closer shot reveals Yoon Kye-sang and Ha Ji-won sitting together on the bridge and having an evening picnic with soju and snacks. The teaser comes to an end with a shot of melted chocolate being drizzled over a cake.

Directing for the drama is PD Lee Hyung-min (Miracle That We MetStrong Woman Do Bong-soon) and writer Lee Kyung-hee (Uncontrollably FondWonderful Season) is penning the scripts.

It’s been a while since I’ve watched a melodrama as I’ve mostly been sticking to rom-coms this year, but I’m starting to really get in the mood for a good romance melo. Having both Ha Ji-won and Yoon Kye-sang in the cast is a big draw as well. The writer does have a tendency to go really big on having a tortured male lead, which I don’t always like. But, I do have a soft spot for Sang-doo, Let’s Go to School and Nice Guyso hopefully Chocolate doesn’t disappoint!

JTBC’s upcoming Friday-Saturday drama Chocolate is currently set to premiere on November 29.

On why he chose “Chocolate” as his first drama in three years, Yoon Kye Sang said, “I always wanted to appear in a human melodrama with deep emotions. Lee Kang seems like a very cold person on the outside, but he has a warm heart. That was one of the biggest charms of the character.”

Nov 20, 2019
by R. Jun

Upcoming JTBC drama “Chocolate” has revealed new behind-the-scenes images of Yoon Kye Sang and Ha Ji Won on set in Greece!

“Chocolate” is a melodrama that tells the love story of Lee Kang, a cold and emotionally closed-off neurosurgeon (played by Yoon Kye Sang), and Moon Cha Young, a warm and compassionate chef (played by Ha Ji Won). After reuniting at a hospice, the two slowly begin to heal each other’s wounds through food.

On working with Ha Ji Won, Yoon Kye Sang said, “I want to say that I’m really happy. I want viewers to feel the happiness that I feel when acting with Ha Ji Won.” Ha Ji Won said, “Yoon Kye Sang always made me laugh on set, and the atmosphere was always great while filming.”

A source from the drama said, “Greece was the first filming location for ‘Chocolate.’ It’s where Moon Cha Young’s restaurant is located, and with the actors’ visuals and the scenery of Greece, we shot some beautiful scenes. You will feel healing through the emotional and warm drama ‘Chocolate.’ The first episode will be a feast for your eyes and ears, so please look forward to it.”

“Chocolate” airs November 29 as the follow-up to “My Country.”
