Promos for Jang Nara, Lee Sang-yoon in mystery office drama VIP
Bring on the Gucci and Versace! Upcoming drama VIP has released new stills of its main character, played by Jang Nara (The Last Empress). She is a strong careerwoman, who works as the deputy head of a specialized elite team of department store salesmen that cater to the whims and desires of the top 1% VIP clients.
Lee Sang-yoon (About Time) plays her husband who also works in the same team, serving VIP clients. Lee Chung-ah (Because This Life is Our First) has also confirmed her role as part of the same team, who holds a dark secret from her past.
Described as a “private office melodrama,” VIP seems much darker in tone than what I would imagine for a drama about shopping. The teaser is stylized and shot in a way that makes it hard to get a good look at our protagonists till the very end. There are hints of scandalous moments and hidden secrets of the VIP clients. Anyhoo, the main cast is amazing, so I’m already onboard.
SBS’s mystery drama VIP, written by Cha Hae-won and directed by PD Lee Jung-rim, started filming this May and will begin airing in October.
