Kim So Yeon Grows Desperate In Front Of Lee Ji Ah In “The Penthouse”
“The Penthouse” is set in a 100-floor luxury penthouse apartment and centers around three women: the “queen” of the penthouse Shim Soo Ryeon (Lee Ji Ah), the “prima donna” Chun Seo Jin (Kim So Yeon) who will stop at nothing to get what she wants, and Oh Yoon Hee (Eugene) who will do anything it takes to get into the world of high society.
Previously, as Shim Soo Ryeon and Logan Lee (Park Eun Suk) were carrying out their revenge against the members of the Hera Palace Club, viewers were left feeling refreshed when the crimes of Chun Seo Jin and Joo Dan Tae (Uhm Ki Joon) were exposed. However, Chun Seo Jin proved that she wouldn’t go down without a fight when she exclaimed as she was being arrested, “You think I’m going to step down like this? I’m Chun Seo Jin, the director of the Chung Ah Foundation.”
New stills show Shim Soo Ryeon seeking out Chun Seo Jin in her lesson room. Shim Soo Ryeon faces her with a dignified expression, but Chun Seo Jin shoots her an icy glare in return. In the midst of their tense confrontation, however, Chun Seo Jin creates a shocking turn of events as she drops to her knees in front of Shim Soo Ryeon. The desperation in her face and the sudden change in her character is making viewers curious about what could have happened during their encounter.

While filming the scene, the two actresses left a lasting impression on set as they poured all of their emotions into expressing their tragic motherly love through constant changes in their acting.
