3 Different Types Of Couples Entangled In The Same Chaebol Family In Upcoming Drama “Mine”
tvN has shared a glimpse of the three very different couples that will be leading its upcoming drama “Mine”!
“Mine” is a new drama about strong and ambitious women who overcome society’s prejudices to discover what’s truly theirs. Lee Bo Young will star as Seo Hee Soo, a former A-list actress and the wife of the second son of the chaebol family behind Hyowon Group, while Kim Seo Hyung will star as Jung Seo Hyun, the elegant, blue-blooded wife of the Hyowon Group family’s eldest son.
Ahead of the drama’s premiere on May 8, “Mine” has teased three intriguing keywords that describe each of its core couples:
1. An unexpected crack
Seo Hee Soo and her husband Han Ji Yong (played by Lee Hyun Wook), who seems likely to inherit Hyowon Group despite being the family’s second son, are a happily married couple that fell in love with each other at first sight. After giving up her career as a famous actress and becoming part of Han Ji Yong’s family, Seo Hee Soo even embraced his son Han Ha Joon as if he were her own child.
However, when Han Ha Joon’s new private tutor Kang Ja Kyung (played by Ok Ja Yeon) enters the picture, cracks begin to form in Seo Hee Soo’s seemingly perfect life. As the happiness that she believed was entirely hers threatens to fall apart, Seo Hee Soo winds up coming face-to-face with an unexpected truth.
On the outside, Jung Seo Hyun and her husband Han Jin Ho (played by Park Hyuk Kwon) seem to have it all. A highly intelligent woman who was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, Jung Seo Hyun does everything she can to support her privileged husband, who boasts the coveted position of being the eldest son of a chaebol family.
On the inside, however, Han Jin Ho actually suffers from a severe inferiority complex when it comes to his younger brother, and Jung Seo Hyun has struggled to handle his insecurities and to ameliorate his seemingly irreparable image.
Additionally, while it appears as though Jung Seo Hyun has done a perfect job raising her son Han Soo Hyuk (played by Cha Hak Yeon), there is no true love between the mother-son duo. Everything about the couple’s seemingly flawless life is a disguise built on the lies of high society, and the drama raises the suspenseful question of how much longer Jung Seo Hyun will be able to keep the charade going—and whether she and her husband are even on the same page.
As the eldest grandson of the Hyowon Group family, Han Soo Hyuk comes from a world that is incompatible with that of Kim Yoo Yeon (played by Jung Yi Seo), the young maid who has recently started working in his household. When he returns home from studying abroad in the United States, the deeply jaded young heir—who apathetically goes about his life without any enthusiasm or zeal—is just about to accept the fate that has already been decided for him by his family when he meets the spirited Kim Yoo Yeon.
After they learn that they both suffer from insomnia, the two wind up growing closer and eventually turning to one another for emotional support, leading to a pure-hearted romance that is free of deceit.
“Mine” will premiere on May 8 at 9 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out a teaser for the drama here!
