Watch: Soo Ae And Kim Kang Woo Are A Picture-Perfect Couple Consumed by Greed In “Artificial City” Teasers
JTBC’s upcoming drama “Artificial City” has unveiled new stills, posters, and a teaser!
“Artificial City” is an upcoming mystery thriller set against the backdrop of an art museum that belongs to Sung Jin Group, a major conglomerate that holds the reins of the political and financial spheres of South Korea. The drama is about the greed and ambitions of women who strive to reach the highest position in the nation.
In the new stills, Soo Ae and Kim Kang Woo appear as Yoon Jae Hee and Jung Joon Hyuk, a married couple who belong to a chaebol family. Yoon Jae Hee is a woman with a strong attachment to her luxurious lifestyle, bordering on obsession, and Jung Joon Hyuk is a man who is caught between his greed and his inferiority complex.
The stills show them as a picture-perfect couple, walking out together in public in elegant formalwear, him putting the engagement ring on her finger, and starting off their marriage in a beautiful wedding gown and tuxedo while exchanging an intimate moment.
However, the new teaser shows how it all falls apart for the couple. Their romance is intense at first, burning with passionate kisses and intimate moments in the dark. Stroking her shoulder, Jung Joon Hyuk whispers, “Men are pathetic, aren’t they? No matter how clever or well-born they are, there’s something they can’t control with logic.”
One night, Yoon Jae Hee catches Jung Joon Hyuk flirting with Kim Yi Seol (Lee Yi Dam) at the art gallery. Yoon Jae Hee is determined to make her husband the next president of South Korea, and says angrily to Kim Yi Seol, “I said I’d forgive it all and endure it, so who are you to butt in?” Kim Yi Seol, who has her own desires and secrets, tells her, “This is just the beginning.” The teaser hints at potential murder and dark plots with the introduction of Go Sun Mi (Kim Joo Ryoung). Kim Yi Seol tells Yoon Jae Hee, “You sound like you’re crazy,” and Yoon Jae Hee fires back, “That’s right. I’m crazy. Look forward to this: I’m going to completely ruin you.”
The individual posters hint at the dangerous dynamic between these three characters. Soo Ae’s poster as Yoon Jae Hee reads, “I’m going to make you the president at all costs. And I’m going to be the one who stands beside you.” Kim Kang Woo’s poster as Jung Joon Hyuk reads, “Humans are divided into two categories. Those who have desires and those who pretend that they don’t.” Lee Yi Dam’s poster as Kim Yi Seol reads, “Are you afraid that I’ll steal it all away from you?”
