Jealousy, tears, and reversals in tense new Woman of Dignity teaser
JTBC’s next Friday-Saturday drama, Woman of Dignity, released its a new teaser that gives us a mysterious glimpse of the relationship between its two leading women, Kim Hee-sun (Angry Mom) and Kim Sun-ah (Masked Prosecutor). This new project is about the story of two women from completely different backgrounds, and how ambition, jealousy, and understanding come between them as one begins usurping the other’s life.
Beginning with the first voiceover by Kim Sun-ah (“I want to try living as her”), we can see the differences between the two women. The stark contrast couldn’t be clearer between Kim Hee-sun, the chaebol’s wife who has it all—money, education, and beauty—and Kim Sun-ah, a dowdy caretaker who enters Kim Hee-sun’s life as a household employee. We see Kim Sun-ah bowing in deference to Kim Hee-sun and secretly trying on her makeup, but soon the tables are flipped.
There are flashes of jealous gazes, a badly injured Kim Sun-ah, and tearful phone calls. Then, Kim Sun-ah looks like she’s the one in the higher social position, dressed to the nines and looking smug. She bids Kim Hee-sun goodbye, who leaves with gritted teeth. The final scene shows both women, facing each other, as Kim Hee-sun’s voiceover closes out the teaser: “This is the story of me and the woman who dreamed of becoming me.”
Although it’s being touted as a human comedy, this promo clip seems more fit for a psychological makjang to me. So I’m still confused as to what to expect, but the sheer amount of emoting done through Kim Sun-ah’s eyes in the brief seconds of the teaser makes me suspect that it’ll be a treat to watch regardless.
Woman of Dignity begins airing on June 16, following the end of Man to Man.
