Rowoon Requests Matchmaking Help From Cho Yi Hyun In

KBS2’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “The Matchmakers” has unveiled a new teaser!

“The Matchmakers” 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.

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

The teaser first begins with Jung Soon Deok as the daughter-in-law. She exudes a modest and neat look with her hair elegantly tied in a chignon and minimal makeup. She introduces herself, “Couples I’ve matched are renowned for their great compatibility and fruitful offspring. That’s why parents with daughters frequently seek me to arrange marriages for their children.”

In the subsequent scene, Jung Soon Deok transforms into her other persona as the goddess of matchmaking Mrs. Yeo Joo. In contrast with her previous image as a humble daughter-in-law, Mrs. Yeo Joo now dons a gache (traditional Korean wig), uses heavy makeup, and sports a beauty mark beneath her eye. With confidence, she offers her matchmaking services, asking, “Shall I try to matchmake them?”

However, even Mrs. Yeo Joo finds herself taken aback when approached by Shim Jung Woo (Rowoon), the widowed son-in-law of the king, to serve as his matchmaker. With a caution, Mrs. Yeo Joo asks Shim Jung Woo, “Do you have any children who are at the right age for marriage?” to which Shim Jung Woo responds in despair, “Children? No!”

Upon returning home, Jung Soon Deok reveals her extraordinary ability, admitting, “I can see it—whether two people are suitable for one another. I think I’m possessed,” and further adds, “by a God capable of seeing people’s predestined fates.”

In a surprising twist, the next scene depicts Shim Jung Woo and Jung Soon Deok engaging in a heartfelt conversation in a somewhat romantic atmosphere. Shim Jung Woo asks, “Then what about me…? What kind of woman suits me?” as they exchange affectionate glances.
