Watch: Jeon Yeo Bin, Chun Woo Hee, And Han Ji Eun Aren’t Afraid To Go Against Social Norms In “Melo Is My Nature” Teaser
JTBC’s “Melo Is My Nature” has released a new highlight video introducing all the main characters!
The upcoming JTBC romantic comedy is about three women in their 30s who navigate the world of dating and the struggles they face in their daily lives.
The highlight video begins with Im Jin Joo (Chun Woo Hee) telling everyone about the misconception that women measure value by appearance and saying she wants to bring a solution. The scene suddenly switches over to a club where the three friends are approached by men. They each take turns rejecting the men, with Chun Woo Hee saying that she’s at the club to escape, Lee Eun Jung (Jeon Yeo Bin) explaining that she came with her boyfriend, and Hwang Han Joo (Han Ji Eun) saying she’s a mother.
The video then moves on to a montage of clips of the actors acting childish or appearing lost with the caption, “When [you] thought being 30 meant that you were an adult…?”
Following the clips, Im Jin Joo is shown receiving the compliment, “I think you’re strangely amazing.” The teaser introduces her as an eccentric and unpredictable drama scriptwriter with a hilarious scene of her eating jokbal (Korean braised pig’s trotters) and soju while saying, “You can’t skip the soju even if it gets difficult!”
The next character the teaser shows is the documentary director Lee Eun Jung who is constantly looked down upon by her superiors. However, she isn’t afraid to speak her mind, saying that she wants to stay healthy rather than drink and even cursing out her superior when he drunkenly flirts with her.
Meanwhile, Hwang Han Joo is busy trying to meet everyone’s requests as a marketing director. When the drama director becomes annoyed by her product placement, she persists even though she’s soft-hearted.
For the introduction of the popular drama producing director (PD) Son Bum Soo (Ahn Jae Hong), Im Jin Joo’s voice-over says that Son Bum Soo’s charm may be that he’s a lacking character. While drinking together, Son Bum Soo says, “I want to listen to your story,” but as soon as he gets drunk, he can’t stop complaining about the girl who broke up with him. When Im Jin Joo protests, he yells, “Why did you give me alcohol then? Listen! I have past loves too.”
Finally, Choo Jae Hoon (Gong Myung) introduces himself to Hwang Han Joo as a new employee. Hwang Han Joo says, “You have such a weak heart, how are you going to get by in society?” but he replies, “You do it too.”
“Melo Is My Nature” premieres on August 9 at 10:50 p.m. KST and will be available with English subtitles on Viki. Watch the full highlight teaser below!
