First look at SBS rom-com Woori the Virgin
The promo train has begun for SBS’s upcoming Woori the Virgin, with new stills and a video teaser featuring leads Im Soo-hyang (When I Was the Most Beautiful), Sung Hoon (Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) 2), and Shin Dong-wook (Reflection of You).
In a remake of the acclaimed American CW show Jane the Virgin, the rom-com stars Im Soo-hyang as the titular Oh Woori. In keeping with her conservative values, she had been protecting her chastity and dating a nice boy who upheld the same. But her life takes a turn when a medical procedure goes wrong and she ends up pregnant after receiving artificial insemination by mistake.
The unaware and biological father of the child is Sung Hoon, the charismatic CEO of a cosmetics company, while police officer Shin Dong-wook plays Im Soo-hyang’s sweet and innocent boyfriend. The supporting cast includes Hong Eun-hee (Revolutionary Sisters) and Kim Su-ro (Inspector Koo), as well as Hong Ji-yoon (My Country: The New Age) playing Sung Hoon’s wife.
The video teaser begins with Im Soo-hyang catching a wedding bouquet and Hong Eun-hee teases that Im has to marry her boyfriend in six months. Im decides she’s not in a rush and declares, “I’m a writer. I don’t want to lose focus on my own life.” But Im is called crazy for being stubborn and gets told to just get married already. We’re shown a sequence of cute, romantic dates with a doting Shin Dong-wook and a confused Im Soo-hyang wonders, “Why do I feel unsure about marrying Kang-jae Oppa?”
We then cut to a text screen, reading: “Destiny’s joke begins!” Gathering the church choir to circle around them with candles and placards, Shin Dong-wook stages his idea of the perfect proposal. But when he gets on his knee to offer the ring and pop the question, a conflicted Im Soo-hyang hesitantly replies, “Oppa, I’m pregnant.” Amidst the stunned group, a dumbfounded Shin can only ask, “With who?” The video comes to a close on the man in question, Sung Hoon, who is partying at a club.
Written and directed by Jung Jung-hwa (The Wind Blows, The Sound of Your Heart: Reboot), Woori the Virgin premieres May 9 in the Monday-Tuesday slot.
