Black dresses and pink stilettos for Woman of Dignity
We’re two weeks away from the premiere of JTBC’s Woman of Dignity, and some more posters of the upcoming female-centric drama have been released. After Man to Man’s adorable bromance between an action star and his spy bodyguard, I look forward to the female equivalent that Woman of Dignity’s producers and its stars promise us.
The more information I get about this show, the more dissonance I feel between the plot and its purported tone, which is reflected in the posters we’ve seen. The story sounds like a pretty standard melo: A chaebol wife, Kim Hee-sun (Angry Mom) gets her world turned upside down when a mysterious and ambitious country bumpkin, Kim Sun-ah (Masked Prosecutor) enters her life, and they trade places on the social ladder. The poster above with the two ladies in black is more indicative of this makjang-ish plot, though I do love the almost goth vibe they give off in the poster.
However, Woman of Dignity has touted itself as a satirical human comedy, and with the promised friendship between our two leading ladies, I’m hoping that the tone will be lighter like in the individual shots below. The posters name Woo Ah-jin (Kim Hee-sun) as the titular woman of dignity, while Park Bok-ja (Kim Sun-ah), in a maid outfit, is described as the woman who wants to be Woo Ah-jin. Woo Ah-jin asks, “Tell me what is it you want,” and Park Bok-ja replies, “Make me like you.” They both look beautiful in these posters, but all I can think of right now is how much I want those shoes. Completely impractical, but so, so pretty…
JTBC’s Woman of Dignity will follow Man to Man in the Friday-Saturday slot, and will premiere on June 16.
