Peacock City' Su ae, Kim Kang-woo, and Lee Yi-dam reveal character posters with overwhelming chemistry








Character posters for 'Duke City' Soo Ae, Kim Kang-woo, and Lee Yi-dam have been released.


On the 25th, JTBC's new Wednesday-Thursday drama 'Peacock City' (played by Son Se-dong / directed by Jeon Chang-geun) released a character poster featuring Soo Ae, Kim Kang-woo, and Lee Yi-dam.


'Peacock City' is an unconventional mystery thriller drama about women's desire to rise to the highest position in Korea against the backdrop of the Seongjin Group's art museum that shakes the political and business worlds of Korea.


First, Soo-ae, who plays Yoon Jae-hee, who boasts an elegant and alluring atmosphere, attracts attention. From the copy phrase “I will make you president, I will be by your side”, you can feel how deep and ambitious her dream is in the character Yoon Jae-hee.


Kim Kang-woo, who plays Jung Jun-hyeok, also exudes an aristocratic force that resembles the restraint of a conglomerate with the phrase "There are only two kinds of humans, those who desire and those who pretend that there is no desire." Indeed, the character Jung Jun-hyeok that he takes on raises curiosity as to which side of the two human categories he belongs to.


Finally, the poster for the character Kim Yi-seol, played by Lee Yi-dam, catches the eye with strong copy phrases and atmosphere. Through the fearless gaze and the provocative phrase “Are you afraid that I will take everything from you?”, curiosity is raised about the repercussions that Lee Seol Kim’s existence will cause to the Seongjin family.


Yoon Jae-hee, who wants to make her husband president, Jeong Jun-hyeok, who wants to rise to the throne so as not to long for anything, Kim Lee-seol, who wants to rise in status, and the three people filled with desire make even the air around them heavy.

Watch: Soo Ae And Kim Kang Woo Are A Picture-Perfect Couple Consumed by Greed In “Artificial City” Teasers



Nov 27, 2021
by C. Hong

JTBC’s upcoming drama “Artificial City” has unveiled new stills, posters, and a teaser!

“Artificial City” is an upcoming mystery thriller set against the backdrop of an art museum that belongs to Sung Jin Group, a major conglomerate that holds the reins of the political and financial spheres of South Korea. The drama is about the greed and ambitions of women who strive to reach the highest position in the nation.

In the new stills, Soo Ae and Kim Kang Woo appear as Yoon Jae Hee and Jung Joon Hyuk, a married couple who belong to a chaebol family. Yoon Jae Hee is a woman with a strong attachment to her luxurious lifestyle, bordering on obsession, and Jung Joon Hyuk is a man who is caught between his greed and his inferiority complex.

The stills show them as a picture-perfect couple, walking out together in public in elegant formalwear, him putting the engagement ring on her finger, and starting off their marriage in a beautiful wedding gown and tuxedo while exchanging an intimate moment.







However, the new teaser shows how it all falls apart for the couple. Their romance is intense at first, burning with passionate kisses and intimate moments in the dark. Stroking her shoulder, Jung Joon Hyuk whispers, “Men are pathetic, aren’t they? No matter how clever or well-born they are, there’s something they can’t control with logic.”

One night, Yoon Jae Hee catches Jung Joon Hyuk flirting with Kim Yi Seol (Lee Yi Dam) at the art gallery. Yoon Jae Hee is determined to make her husband the next president of South Korea, and says angrily to Kim Yi Seol, “I said I’d forgive it all and endure it, so who are you to butt in?” Kim Yi Seol, who has her own desires and secrets, tells her, “This is just the beginning.” The teaser hints at potential murder and dark plots with the introduction of Go Sun Mi (Kim Joo Ryoung). Kim Yi Seol tells Yoon Jae Hee, “You sound like you’re crazy,” and Yoon Jae Hee fires back, “That’s right. I’m crazy. Look forward to this: I’m going to completely ruin you.”



The individual posters hint at the dangerous dynamic between these three characters. Soo Ae’s poster as Yoon Jae Hee reads, “I’m going to make you the president at all costs. And I’m going to be the one who stands beside you.” Kim Kang Woo’s poster as Jung Joon Hyuk reads, “Humans are divided into two categories. Those who have desires and those who pretend that they don’t.” Lee Yi Dam’s poster as Kim Yi Seol reads, “Are you afraid that I’ll steal it all away from you?”

Soo Ae, Kim Mi Sook, And More Fight To Gain The Upper Hand In “Artificial City”


Dec 1, 2021
by S. Nam

JTBC’s upcoming drama “Artificial City” shared a preview of the women in the drama!

“Artificial City” is an upcoming mystery thriller set against the backdrop of an art museum that belongs to Sung Jin Group, a major conglomerate that holds the reins of the political and financial spheres of South Korea. The drama is about the greed and ambitions of women who strive to reach the highest position in the nation.

With growing curiosity about how powerful Sung Jin Group is and what greed the family harbors, the drama introduced the women of Sung Jin Group. In particular, “Artificial City” previews the conflict between the group’s second daughter-in-law Yoon Jae Hee (Soo Ae) and her mother-in-law Seo Han Sook (Kim Mi Sook), who is at the center of Sung Jin Group’s power. The stills of Sung Jin Group’s oldest daughter-in-law Lee Joo Yeon (Kim Ji Hyun) and Seo Han Sook’s secretary Go Sun Mi (Kim Joo Ryung) are also surrounded by a stiff atmosphere, raising questions about their roles in the story.

Yoon Jae Hee, who is set on making her husband Jung Joon Hyuk (Kim Kang Woo) the president, will confront her powerful mother-in-law, who has absolute authority, on equal footing. Yoon Jae Hee is wild and daring while her mother-in-law responds with her overwhelming aura. The way they clash seems like two wild animals fighting fiercely in the wild for survival, making the scenes with them together even more suffocating and tense.






Unlike Yoon Jae Hee, Lee Joo Yeon had been decided as Sung Jin Group’s daughter-in-law even before she was born, and she’s from a prestigious family down to her bones. Having grown up without lacking anything, Lee Joo Yeon can’t help but be very different from Yoon Jae Hee.

Lee Joo Yeon just wants to live life with class while enjoying the things she has, but Yoon Jae Hee’s relentlessness has become an uncomfortable thorn in her side. Lee Joo Yeon is superior to Yoon Jae Hee when it comes to her family background, and she’s the CEO of Space Jin, whereas Yoon Jae Hee is the general director.






Go Sun Mi has carried on her family’s work to become Seo Han Sook’s secretary, and she’s a silent character who doesn’t speak more than is necessary since she’s realized silence will allow her to get by in life. Due to the fact that she’s assisted Seo Han Sook for a long period of time, her existence itself is practically Sung Jin Group’s account book. Viewers are looking forward to the show’s premiere to find out what role Go Sun Mi will play among the women of Sung Jin Group.

Ep.1 trailer for JTBC drama series “Artificial City”


Ep.1 trailer added for JTBC drama series “Artificial City” starring Soo-Ae & Kim Kang-Woo. The trailer begins with Soo-Ae stating “A person died because of me.” Above and below are three character posters for the drama series. The character posters are of Soo-Ae as Yoon Jae-Hee, Kim Kang-Woo as Jung Joon-Hyeok, and Lee E-Dam as Kim Yi-Seol.

“Artificial City” first airs December 8, 2021 in South Korea.

Plot Synopsis by AsianWiki: Yoon Jae-Hee (Soo-Ae) is the second daughter-in-law of the chaebol family who runs the Sungjin Group. She works at art gallery Space Jin. In the past, she had a boyfriend she dated for years, but she dumped him to marry Jung Joon-Hyeok (Kim Kang-Woo). Jung Joon-Hyeok was born out of wedlock to the chaebol family.

Yoon Jae-Hee wants to make her husband the South Korean president. For that, she cooperates with the next public prosecutor general and she begins a war against her in-laws.











Peacock City’ Seongjin Family Family Tree Revealed… Soo-ae → Lee Hak-joo, what kind of relationship?




The family tree of the Seongjin family that shakes the Republic of Korea in 'Duke City' has been released.

The relationship between the three women, from the head of the art museum 'Art Space Jin', Yoon Jae-hee (Soo-ae), to the chairperson, Seo Han-sook (Kim Mi-sook), and docent Kim Yi-seol (Lee-dam) are eye-catching.

First, the boldness of her second daughter-in-law Yoon Jae-hee, who demands everything she has from Seo Han-sook, who divides people into ‘useful and useless’, foreshadows a tense confrontation. On the contrary, Yoon Jae-hee is established as a being who can help docent Kim Yi-seol, and Yoon Jae-hee also defines Kim Lee-seol as 'a person who resembles me', which makes the situation of the two women inevitably entangled.

At the same time, attention is paid to the relationship between Jung Jun-hyeok (Kim Kang-woo) and the people around her, who will achieve Yoon Jae-hee's ultimate goal of 'making her husband president'. This is because Lee Seol Kim, who seems to have no contact other than her wife and lovely son, is connected. In particular, it remains to be seen how the shape of the branch with the word 'lust' foretells an unusual rupture and shakes up their lives.

In addition, JBC reporter Han Dong-min (Lee Hak-joo), a junior who respects and follows Jung Jun-hyeok, also has feelings for Kim Yi-seol, so there are signs of a conflict with his senior Jung Jun-hyuk in the future. Here, prosecutor Park Jeong-ho (Lee Chung-joo) is connected by an unusual string of Yoon Jae-hee's former lover, which doubles the interest.

Not only that, including her father-in-law Jeong Pil-seong (Song Young-chang), Yoon Jae-hee, who had a hostile relationship with several groups, as well as the people of the Seongjin family formed centered on Seo Han-sook, the relationship like a food chain of those who are full of desires creates a breathtaking tension just by looking at them. emanating Expectations are high for a fatal and unconventional story that delves into the mind.

Yidam Lee “Casting ‘Duke City’, the biggest event of my life”




Actor Lee Yi-dam showed special affection for the character Kim Yi-seol in 'Duke City'.

Lee Yi-dam (played by Kim Yi-seol) said, “When I heard the news about the casting, I didn’t believe it. I was desperate for the first few weeks of auditioning, but I wondered if there would be such a big event in my life.” He said, “I prepared with a fluttering heart every day, and I was very excited and nervous while filming.”

Also, since they are mysterious beings who infiltrate the daily life of Yoon Jae-hee (Soo-ae) and Jung Jun-hyeok (Kim Kang-woo) in the play, I wonder how they might have approached the characters. Regarding this, "Kim Yi-seol's feelings toward each character are different in the early, mid, and late stages. Because of that, I wanted to express those emotions in detail.”


Meanwhile, Lee Yi-dam shared her first acting breath with actors Soo-ae and Kim Kang-woo (Jung Jun-hyeok) through 'Peacock City'. Lee Yi-dam, who had to digest various emotions while closely entangled with the two actors in the play, was worried about whether he could do well as he prepared before filming.


Lee I Dam said, “I started with worries and burdens, but whenever I was troubled with acting, he waited for me so that my seniors could find a way, and helped me to set a direction. This gave him more strength and confidence. He felt a lot of things while watching the performances of his seniors, and he felt the fun of acting once again.”

JTBC's new Wednesday-Thursday drama 'Peacock City', which Lee Yi-dam expects Kim Yi-seol to express, is an unconventional mystery thriller drama about women's desire to rise to the highest position in Korea against the backdrop of the Seongjin Group's art museum that shakes the political and financial world of Korea. The first broadcast will be on December 8 at 10:30 pm
