First teaser for JTBC’s Chocolate with Ha Ji-won, Yoon Kye-sang

A new video teaser has been released for JTBC drama Chocolate, featuring lead actors Ha Ji-won (Hospital Ship) and Yoon Kye-sang (The Good Wife).

The story of Chocolate is centered around the two characters, who run into each other at a hospice and develop a connection through cooking and food. Their personalities are contrasts, with Ha Ji-won playing fiery chef Moon Cha-young and Yoon Kye-sang playing the aloof neurologist Lee Kang. However, as they learn more about each other, they discover commonalities in their past experiences. The two gradually fall in love through the solace and encouragement that they find in one another, and they’re able to heal and move on from old emotional scars.

The newly released teaser starts with Ha Ji-won upset and standing by a house outside at night. There is a quick shot of a white plate bearing the word “Ever” written in chocolate powder before it cuts away to a landscape of water. The text on the screen reads, “There was a time that I lost my way.” In voice-over, Ha Ji-won explains: “When it hurts so much inside that I can’t breathe, I eat chocolate.” We briefly see a pair of hands preparing chocolate in a bowl and it cuts to Ha Ji-won looking off in the distance. As the camera pans across a peaceful view of the town, Yoon Kye-sang replies: “I don’t eat chocolate.”

Cut to an explosion and a thick cloud of dust. Yoon continues, “I liked it when I was young, but, at some point, I just, I just stopped eating it.” As he speaks, there is a quick sequence of shots showing the sea, tree leaves, an injured face, a boy making something with chocolate, Yoon Kye-sang crying, and someone in a hospital bed. It cuts away to a reflection of two people sitting on a bridge with the caption: “In an endless pit of despair, I was met with longing.” A closer shot reveals Yoon Kye-sang and Ha Ji-won sitting together on the bridge and having an evening picnic with soju and snacks. The teaser comes to an end with a shot of melted chocolate being drizzled over a cake.

Directing for the drama is PD Lee Hyung-min (Miracle That We Met, Strong Woman Do Bong-soon) and writer Lee Kyung-hee (Uncontrollably Fond, Wonderful Season) is penning the scripts.

It’s been a while since I’ve watched a melodrama as I’ve mostly been sticking to rom-coms this year, but I’m starting to really get in the mood for a good romance melo. Having both Ha Ji-won and Yoon Kye-sang in the cast is a big draw as well. The writer does have a tendency to go really big on having a tortured male lead, which I don’t always like. But, I do have a soft spot for Sang-doo, Let’s Go to School and Nice Guy so hopefully Chocolate doesn’t disappoint!

JTBC’s upcoming Friday-Saturday drama Chocolate is currently set to premiere on November 29.

He's playing a doctor again, although I think he was an herbal doctor in The Greatest Love.

Ooh looking forward to this. It's been a while since I saw a melodrama romance, ngl I thought Boyfriend/Encounter was going to be it but it wasn't. The writer Lee Kyung-hee, she does a lot of good tearjerking dramas so hope this is a success!

I will watch anything involving chocolate, and anything involving JTBC. JTBC has a high batting average for 'favorite' TV series. The now question is, will Viki stream it?

My guess is Yes, but then it will be restricted. It seems like nearly everything interesting is restricted on Viki these days, but I'd rather find it underground than pay even more than I am already paying for their service.

I hope this drama will be better than previous Ha Ji Won's projects. I like the team behind it and the leads but since I don't want to be to disappointed, I will keep my expectations low.

Me too. With some dramas turning out differently than I expected, I’m low-key anticipating this. I do hope this turns out well. I like Ha Ji Won and this is my kind of genre. It will be my first Yoon Kye Sang watch.

Have you ever seen him in Who Are You? I loved it because he did a fabulous job. It got some bad reviews because Go Ara was so unbelievably shouty, but YKS was Amazing.
