Watch: Ji Chang Wook And Won Jin Ah React To Being Frozen For 20 Years In “Melting Me Softly” Teasers
“Melting Me Softly” is a new romantic comedy about a man and a woman who participate in a project where they’re to be frozen for 24 hours. Due to a mysterious scheme, however, they wake up 20 years later. Ji Chang Wook will play the role of accomplished producing director (PD) Ma Dong Chan, who can make a hit out of any variety show he produces, while Won Jin Ah will take on the role of Go Mi Ran, a part-time employee at a broadcasting station.
In the teaser clips, both Ma Dong Chan and Go Mi Ran begin the human freezing project, fully prepared to wake up in 24 hours. They fall asleep in a cold room encased in ice. Ma Dong Chan narrates, “We dreamed of the legend of the broadcasting industry through this freezing project,” while Go Mi Ran says, “They said they would defrost us in 24 hours.”
They later wake up and realize that instead of being frozen for a day, they’ve been frozen for 20 years. Although Ma Dong Chan is clearly distressed as he shouts into his smartphone, “2019?!” he still retains his youthful looks from 1999. Go Mi Ran helplessly asks, “What do I do now?” as she lets out a big sigh.
