Watch: Rowoon, Cho Yi Hyun, And More Impress At Script Reading For New Historical Rom-Com Drama

KBS2’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “The Matchmakers” has shared a sneak peek at first script reading!

“The Matchmakers” is a rom-com drama set during the Joseon dynasty. It tells the story of the meeting between the young widower Shim Jung Woo (Rowoon) and young widow Jung Soon Deok (Cho Yi Hyun) as well as the struggle the two go through together to marry off Joseon era’s unmarried women and men who are considered older than the typical prime age range.

Rowoon will take on the role of Shim Jung Woo, the widowed son-in-law of the king who is brilliant enough to become the youngest person to pass the Civil Service Exam. However, he is also a person of misfortune whose chances for a higher social status and future marriage prospects slip away when the princess he’s meant to marry passes away during their wedding ceremony.

Cho Yi Hyun will play Jung Soon Deok, the second daughter-in-law of the first vice-premier’s family. She lives a double life as Mrs. Yeo Joo, the best matchmaker in Hanyang City.

Park Ji Young, who showcased her solid acting skills through “Revenant,” will portray Park So Hyun, also known as Mrs. Park, a powerful figure who made her husband the left minister, her younger brother a byungpan (similar to a minister of national defense in Joseon Dynasty), and her youngest sister a concubine.

Jo Han Chul, who impressed in “Weak Hero Class 1” and “Reborn Rich,” will play the role of a king who wants to make Dr. Maeng’s three daughters get married within two months.

Jung Shin Hye, who impressed through the dramas “My Perfect Stranger” and “Cheer Up,” will play foul-mouthed Maeng Ha Na, the first daughter of Dr. Maeng.

Park Ji Won will take on the role of Dr. Maeng’s second daughter Maeng Doo Ri, the novelist who dresses up as a man to deliver books.

The production team remarked, “‘The Matchmakers’ will greet viewers with comfortable laughter that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and genders as well as a unique historical rom-com drama that will transform the vibes of late fall when the cold wind begins to blow into heart-fluttering excitement.”
