Ji Chang Wook And Shin Hye Sun Are Exes Brought Back Together By Fate In “Welcome to Samdalri”
JTBC’s upcoming drama “Welcome to Samdalri” has unveiled its main poster!
Helmed by “When the Camellia Blooms” director Cha Young Hoon, “Welcome to Samdalri” is a new romance drama starring Ji Chang Wook as Jo Yong Pil, a man who has faithfully stayed in his hometown on Jeju Island all his life in order to protect its residents. Shin Hye Sun will star as Jo Sam Dal, who grew up together with Jo Yong Pil as his close childhood friend.
Unlike Yong Pil, who was content to remain in his hometown of Samdalri, Sam Dal made it her mission to get out of their small town and move to Seoul. In order to chase her dream of becoming a photographer, Sam Dal gritted her teeth and toiled away as an assistant in the cutthroat fashion industry—and after years of hard work, she finally succeeded and made it to the top. However, when everything she’s worked so hard to build comes crashing down in the blink of an eye, she is forced to finally return to Samdalri.
Although Sam Dal didn’t initially want to go back to Samdalri, once she gets there, she finds unexpected comfort and a breath of fresh air in her ex-boyfriend Yong Pil, who used to be her closest companion. In the newly released poster, Sam Dal appears to have finally found peace by Yong Pil’s side, with the former couple smiling happily as they look out together at the sea and sky.
The poster’s caption hints at the journey of healing that lies ahead for Sam Dal and Yong Pil after their reunion, reading, “The moment when we finally begin to catch our breath.”
The drama’s production team remarked, “For the people that have been busily racing ahead this year without a chance to catch their breath, we hope that you’ll be able to recharge for a moment at the end of this year by catching your breath together with Yong Pil and Sam Dal through ‘Welcome to Samdalri.’”
“In order to capture the peace, familiarity, and warmth conveyed by the word ‘hometown,’ we are paying special attention to the beauty of the cinematography as well,” they continued. “Please look forward to the premiere of ‘Welcome to Samdalri,’ a drama that will bring you peace while making you laugh amidst your hectic everyday life.”
“Welcome to Samdalri” will premiere on December 2 at 10:30 p.m. KST. Check out a teaser for the drama here!
