Desperate and determined, Jo Yeo-jung fights against the odds in 9.9 Billion Won Woman
9.9 Billion Won Woman promises heart-pounding thrills and high stakes in its latest teaser. This mystery-thriller is about a woman who was living without hope. Somehow she happens to gain possession of 9.9 billion won and has to fight against the greedy world to keep it, and in the process, she finds her own strength. First of all, please be warned that some of the imagery may be triggering to those who have been in abusive relationships.
Featuring Jo Yeo-jung (A Beautiful World) as the titular heroine, the first scenes capture her being thrown to the ground by her husband, played by Jung Woong-in (Chief of Staff). She narrates “You don’t know anything…” as he cuts in to say “My patience is getting closer and closer to bottom.” He grabs her again in a tight hug, and she goes on to finish her statement: “…about how I’ve had to struggle to survive.”
Then, she’s shown trying to escape Lee Ji-hoon’s (Rookie Historian Gu Hae-ryung) grasp in a lake at nighttime. Lee Ji-hoon plays the director to a formidable organization, and a husband with a wandering eye. His wife is played by Oh Na-ra (SKY Castle), who is shown in the next scene, asking “Is that my fault?”
Then we have Detective Kim Kang-woo (Item), who is shown grieving at a mausoleum, vowing to catch the people who killed his younger brother.
In the next scene, Lee Ji-hoon caresses Jo Yeo-jung’s face, while telling her that from this moment on they are co-conspirators. She clenches her fist and pushes him away angrily, as she says to him: “No, I’m the one who started it.” He’s seen carrying away two large-sized bags, possibly containing cash (or bodies).
It’s announced that 10 billion won in cash has gone missing. Scenes of all our main characters flash by as Jo Yeo-jung tells someone that she’s hit rock bottom but that with this money she can change everything, and we end with her walking with grim purpose on her face.
KBS’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama 9.9 Billion Won Woman will begin on December 4.
