Watch: Hwang In Yeop Falls For Seo Hyun Jin Despite Her Greedy Ambitions In Teaser For “Why Her?”
SBS has unveiled an intriguing teaser of its upcoming drama “Why Her?”!
“Why Her?” is a mystery romance drama starring Seo Hyun Jin as Oh Soo Jae, a cold-hearted lawyer who has grown empty after only chasing success, and Hwang In Yeop as law student Gong Chan who will do anything to protect her. The drama also stars Heo Joon Ho, Bae In Hyuk, Kim Chang Wan, Lee Kyung Young, Bae Hae Sun, and more.
Seo Hyun Jin’s character Oh Soo Jae is the youngest ace partner at the leading TK Law Firm. She is a cold character equipped with a flaming desire to win and fearless self-righteousness that makes her opponents kneel before her. Hwang In Yeop plays Gong Chan who has great empathy that allows him to look into other people’s hearts. However, he also has a painful past that caused his fate to become twisted. Gong Chan begins to experience a change after fatefully meeting Oh Soo Jae who has been pushed out of her position to become an affiliated professor for the law school due to an unexpected incident.
The newly released teaser highlights Oh Soo Jae’s ambitious nature. She dreams of becoming the first female big law firm CEO, and her voiceover states, “Going all the way up to the top is my dream, and I’m halfway there.” However, the steps to achieve her goal isn’t easy, and there’s a clip of her clutching onto her bleeding face as someone cries out, “You’re the one who killed my sister!”
A clip of TK Law Firm’s chairman Choi Tae Guk (Heo Joon Ho) shows how much of an influence he has on Oh Soo Jae’s life. He’s the one who reached out to her with an irresistible promise, saying, “I’ll let you taste the power of success that you’ve never experienced,” and she eagerly accepts his hand with sparkling eyes.
Despite Oh Soo Jae’s icy nature, Gong Chan is deeply tugged towards her. He wonders, “Why are you going through this? What kind of world are you in?” When they’re alone in an elevator, he straightforwardly tells her he likes her, and he, along with Choi Yoon Sang (Bae In Hyuk), takes down papers that claim Oh Soo Jae is a murderer. Towards the end of the clip, Oh Soo Jae smirks triumphantly as her voiceover asks, “Did you think you were a match for me?”
