Lee El Receives Mysterious Gift From Park Hyo Joo After Meeting For 1st Time In 18 Years In New Drama

ENA’s upcoming drama “Happiness Battle” (literal translation) has shared a sneak peek of the tense reunion between Lee El and Park Hyo Joo!

“Happiness Battle” is a suspenseful new thriller about a group of influencer mothers locked in a fierce “battle for happiness” on social media. When one of them dies under mysterious circumstances, a new battle begins—this time between those who wish to cover up a secret and those who wish to uncover it.

Lee El will star as Jang Mi Ho, who enters this world on a quest to go digging for the truth, while Jin Seo Yeon, Cha Ye Ryun, and Park Hyo Joo will star as the influencer mothers competing against one another.

Notably, Jang Mi Ho has history with one of the mothers—Oh Yoo Jin (Park Hyo Joo)—and in newly released stills from the drama, the two women meet for the first time in 18 years. The tense atmosphere as Jang Mi Ho and Oh Yoo Jin gaze frostily at one another suggests that the two might not have parted on the best terms, raising the question of why they’ve chosen to reunite after so long.

After sliding a mysterious gift box across the table towards Jang Mi Ho, Oh Yoo Jin immediately gets up and leaves the other woman behind. Later, Oh Yoo Jin stands outside holding Jang Mi Ho’s gift with an offended expression, piquing curiosity as to what could have been inside the box.

The producers of “Happiness Battle” praised both actresses, remarking, “Lee El and Park Hyo Joo portrayed in fine detail the complex emotions of Jang Mi Ho and Oh Yoo Jin as they met for the first time in 18 years. Although they greeted each other warmly on set, as soon as we started filming, the two actresses would immediately disappear into their characters’ emotions in the blink of an eye. Seeing that, the entire staff was impressed.”

They went on to add, “We hope you’ll look forward to the whirlwind of a story that begins with the meeting of these two women in ‘Happiness Battle.'”

“Happiness Battle” will premiere on May 31 at 9 p.m. KST.
