Lee Yeon-hee’s travel drama The Package scheduled on JTBC calendar

Remember The Package? It was that travel romance drama first announced waaay back last year with Lee Yeon-hee (Reunited Worlds) and Jung Yong-hwa (Three Musketeers). The drama was pre-produced and hasn’t had a lot of updates about its status, but it looks like it’s finally moving forward, and has secured a spot on the JTBC calendar for the fall.

The Package refers to a package travel tour: For the drama, various individuals at all stages in life decide to take a package trip, each for different reasons. Lee Yeon-hee is their tour guide, a previous foreign exchange student who studied at a French university. Jung Yong-hwa plays a solo traveler, and one of my favorite actors, Choi Woo-shik (Fight My Way), plays a repeatedly failed young entrepreneur who has been in the same relationship for ten years.

There are at least five others in the package tour group: Ha Shi-eun (Oh Hae-young Again), who plays a game designer in that weird stage between dating and marriage; Ryu Seung-soo (Falsify), who plays a man whose relationship with his partner is unclear; Park Yoo-na (Sassy Go Go), whose age can’t be guessed; Jung Gyu-su (Ruler—Master of the Mask), who plays a stubborn grumpy crank; Lee Ji-hyun (Grand Prix), who devoted her entire life to support her ill husband; and finally, Yoon Park (Introverted Boss) playing the mystery guy who has come in pursuit of Lee Yeon-hee’s character.

Set in France and co-directed by two PDs, Jeon Chang-geun (What’s With this Family) and Kim Jin-won (Nice Guy), who both have extensive experience in dramas with messy relationships, The Package looks like it’ll be full of beautiful scenery and poignant emotional moments.

JTBC’s The Package will air starting in October, after the end of upcoming drama Age of Youth 2, and will have 12 episodes.

Yes, I hope that they will keep communications in English or in French to a minimum. Lucky for me I barely speak any French (just a few words here and there), so even if a character butchers the french language, I wouldn't know lol.

It took me awhile to realize that this Lee Yeon Hee is the same Lee Yeon Hee that's in Reunited Worlds right now. My mind completely separated them. I blame the hair.

Why did this take so damn long to air though. Also Choi Woo Shik is in this!?! Man, I really forgot everything about this show.

Well I guess now I have another drama to add to my "want to watch" list. This looks like it could be a really good, fresh, and heart-filled romantic slice-of-life drama, maybe with a dash of mystery? (due to the mysterious character?) I just hope that it will have the right emotional notes and good/likable characters (basically good execution)!
