Cameras roll on set of SBS rom-com Jealousy Incarnate

We have our first look at the upcoming SBS romantic-comedy drama Jealousy Incarnate. Filming for this project started in mid-June outside the Prism Tower in Yeoiudo with leads Jo Jung-seok (Oh My Ghostess) and Gong Hyo-jin (It’s Okay, It’s Love). From the title, you’d think that Jealousy Incarnate was some sort of makjang chaebol drama, but it’s not (well, hopefully not). This drama is being touted as a cutesy, romantic, but also thoughtful story about the real struggles of working at a broadcasting station.

The lovely Gong Hyo-jin has taken on the role of Pyo Na-ri, a weather girl who doesn’t have the greatest resume but has worked hard to get to her current position at the station. Then we have her counterpart, the macho Lee Hwa-shin, played by Jo Jung-seok. He is from a well-to-do family, a well-educated background, with a promising career as a reporter. Amidst competition at the station and despite their polar opposite origins, they eventually fall in love.

On the set of Jealousy Incarnate’s first filming session, we see Lee Hwa-shin with a suitcase in each hand striding toward the building, only to suddenly turn around after seeing something near the entrance. Pyo Na-ri hurriedly scurries after him the entire time. Are they going on a trip? Is she stalking him? Did Lee Hwa-shin find a clue for a news story? We’ll have to wait until August to find out because that’s when Jealousy Incarnate starts airing, in current mystery-thriller drama Wanted’s time slot.

This drama is brought to you by Seo Sook-hyang, who was also a writer on one of Gong Hyo-jin’s other popular dramas Pasta. The PD on this project is Park Shin-woo who helmed Angel Eyes, which while not without its flaws, was directed to accentuate the amazing chemistry between its leads. Hopefully, he’ll be able to make the most of Gong Hyo-jin’s quirky charm and Jo Jung-seok’s unique charisma. Knowing these two actors, it’ll be pretty hard to fail. I mean come on. Look at Jo Jung-seok, trying to rock that stache. I might just tune in to decide whether I like the look on him or not. It’s hard to tell.

Jealousy Incarnate premieres in August.

Haha, I'm reading this on my phone, and when tineybeanie mentioned a stache, I had to scroll back to the pictures and squint at them :)
I come from a family with a lot of facial hair (my dad had to shave twice a day when he worked at a bank), to be honest, this hardly counts.

You right. SBS without gong hyo jin is just like soup without salt. I hope gong hyo jin drama will have a better rating wise. I watch wanted drama but i saw it not really intriguing like signal, i am dissapointed with sbs tbh, ji sung entertainer drama too not really great. I hope gong hyo jin will win the competition through this drama and jo jung suk can push his acting abilty in this drama tho!

"Pasta" is a classic, and "Angel Eyes" was beautifully shot.... And now you add Gong Hyo Jin and Jo Jeong Suk to the mix, and I'm pretty sure this is the perfect mixture of talents right here *crosses fingers tightly as I patiently wait for August*

This actor is SO lucky!! He got paired with the MOVIE STAR park Bo young and Now Gong Hye jin..??? His acting isn't very special or good. I don't wanna say he is bad actor. Just wanna say Gong Hye Jin deserves better stars. After all, she acted with starlike Kim So hyun and Jo in sung...

Nonsense. JJS has got enough charisma and acting chops to match his leading lady.

100% disagree. I saw him for the first time in OMG, had no preconceived opinions about him and what stood out to me the most was how good his acting was.

GHJ is hands down my favorite actress. She has fabulous chemistry with all of her co-stars. I believe JJS can more than hold his own with her. I first saw him in King 2 Hearts and he was so good at the restrained emotion. You could see so much more going on underneath. I don't think I've ever cried so hard watching a K-drama. I'm so excited for this pairing.

I can see Gong hyo jin wearing all those beautiful clothes. Do these dramas' stylists/ designers decide what the actors should wear or do the actors chose themselves what to wear? She wears the best clothes in her dramas.

I bet my money that she chooses what to wear. She's truly ahead of fashion, a year ahead that is. Remember how she layered a dress on top of tee in Master's Sun? Well, it's chic now.

Remember when she dressed all rock chic in The Producer and layered spaghetti strap top on top of long-sleeved blouse. Well, a year later, everyone is dressing the same way.

Whenever a viki commenter questions GHJ's fashion choice, I mutter to myself: "Just wait." xD

Oh yeah, I remember her fashion choices in Producers and was like...what's going on with all this layering. But this is GHJ who manages to pull off the weirdest outfits. And at least her long sleeve tops underneath were all plain and fitted, not some bulky mess like this year. I really don't get this trend.

Dramas or shows in general almost always have stylists. They are there to both dress the actors and make sure the actors dress in character. You can't have a character who is supposed to be poor wearing designer outfits or a chaebol wearing cheap looking clothes. But I wouldn't be surprised if actors and actresses had a say in what to wear.

"You can't have a character who is supposed to be poor wearing designer outfits..."
Hahaha oh yes you can. They do it all the time. As the awesome Cheon Song-Yi would say (MLFTS), why else would they be so poor while working so many jobs?

I think her fashion by herself and advice from her stylish :)

I think if you have a look for your character in mind, then you can definitely talk with the director about it and choose what you wear. I remember Lee Soo Hyuk saying in an interview that he picked his simple clothing for his carpenter role in Valid Love.
