For those eager to find out the truth about the new melodrama “Secrets,” there’s now a teaser that offers some insight into what to expect.
The upcoming series with the promising cast of Ji Sung, Hwang Jung Eum, Bae Soo Bin and Lee Da Hee starts next week on Sept. 11. The characters sound interesting.
Min Hyuk, a second-generation chaebol, played by Ji Sung, should be content with his life because he has it all. But he’s not. The one thing he wants but can’t quite get is revenge.
The person he wants to exact revenge against is Yoo Jung, the woman who he thinks killed his ex-girlfriend in a hit and run accident. What he doesn’t know is that Yoo Jung, played by Hwang Jung Eum, didn’t really do it. She was so in love with her boyfriend, Do Hoon, played by Bae Soo Bin, that she took the fall for him and confessed to the crime. But he was not worth the sacrifice. She went to prison and served time to protect his career, only to be dumped by him. Even though she was treated badly, Yoo Jung is a strong character and leaves prison determined to make a new start.
She has no idea how difficult starting a new life will be with someone looking to ruin her life at every turn.
She was not foolish for loving Do Hoon because he was not always a bad guy. He was a competent and dedicated prosecutor before he became hungry for power. That ambition blinds him to everything else.
Also in the cast is Lee Da Hee, as Shin Se Yeon, a woman desperate for love.
In a way, all the characters in this drama are blinded by their consuming desires. Ji Sung is blinded by revenge. Hwang Jung Eum is so optimistic and determined to make a new start that she can’t see danger. Bae Soo Bin is blinded by his hunger for power. And Lee Da Hee is blinded by love. With all that lack of vision, the road could get bumpy.
Ji Sung, who will be married this month to actress Lee Bo Young, previously starred in “Protect The Boss,” “Save The Last Dance For Me,” “Swallow The Sun” and “The Great Seer.”
Hwang Jung Eum appeared in “High Kick Through The Roof,” “Giant,” “Full House Take 2” and “Incarnation of Money.”
Bae Soo Bin has appeared in “49 Days,” “Dong Yi,” “Temptation of An Angel” and “Brilliant Legacy.”
Lee Da Hee had her breakout role in “I Hear Your Voice” with Ji Sung’s wife-to-be, Lee Bo Young. Before that she appeared in “Birdie Buddy” and “I Need Romance.”
