New stills for JTBC’s Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick
In anticipation of the premiere next week, JTBC drama Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick has released new stills featuring the main cast: Won Jin-ah (Melting Me Softly), Kim Ro-woon (Extraordinary You), Lee Hyun-wook (Search), and Lee Joo-bin (Find Me in Your Memory).
The glue for how all the characters come to know each other is cosmetics company Clara, where Won Jin-ah, Kim Ro-woon, and Lee Hyun-wook all work. And, along with Lee Joo-bin, the four become involved in a somewhat complicated love quadrangle.
As part of the marketing team, Won Jin-ah is well-known for being professional and a workaholic. But she is just as dedicated to her love life as well and isn’t willing to sacrifice one over the other.
Kim Ro-woon plays Won’s hoobae at work and is the type of person who wears their heart on their sleeve. He has a strong moral compass about what’s good and what’s bad, and takes responsibility for all of his actions and the consequences that follow.
Lee Hyun-wook plays the marketing team lead. Ambitious, he works hard to grow and succeed in his career. And although he seems cold, is quite affectionate to the people he loves.
While most of the characters are employees, photographer Lee Joo-bin is the granddaughter to the cosmetic company’s founders. Her older brother (played by Lee Kyu-han) is friends with Lee Hyun-wook, and it is through him that she first meets Lee Hyun-wook and falls for him. Although she seems prickly, she has a big heart for people and will do anything when it comes to love.
With the newly released stills, we are also told more about the drama’s upcoming story. Won Jin-ah looks at rings in a jewelry shop, presumably for secret relationship with Lee Hyun-wook. But Kim Ro-woon, who is aware of the secret, spots Lee Hyun-wook together with Lee Joo-bin. And Kim is shocked to see the two Lee’s looking friendly, linking arms, and entering a wedding dress shop.
Written by Chae Yoon and directed by PD Lee Dong-yoon (20th Century Boy and Girl, Fated to Love You), JTBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick premieres next week on January 18.
