The first teaser for the new Hong Sisters drama “Warm and Cozy” makes it look like a sweet and sunny summer rom-com.
The trailer shows actors Yoo Yeon Suk and Kang So Ra in a few funny scenes shot on beautiful Jeju Island.
In one of the scenes Kang So Ra’s character Lee Jun Joo shows up on the island with her suitcases in tow. After working hard in fashion for five years, she moves to Jeju Island to start over.
There she runs into Baek Gun Woo, the wealthy owner of the restaurant Warm and Cozy. She encounters him as he lazily reclines in his hammock. Baek Gun Woo moved to the island to open a restaurant so he could be near a girl he likes. Having plenty of money to spare, he can do what he likes and has never worked hard for a day in his life.
Lee Jun Joo needs a job so they wind up working together at the restaurant. The two characters have a very different attitude to life and work. But that will only make it funnier when they wind up falling in love.
Not only will his rich-boy attitude make him seem less than desirable to Lee Jun Joo, but he will also face some competition for her attentions.
B1A4’s Jin Young will play Jung Poong San, a restaurant employee who went to pharmacy school but then decided to change his career course. When it comes to love he may not be so indecisive. He is likely to know exactly what he wants when he meets Kang So Ra.
“Warm and Cozy” also stars Kim Sung Oh, last seen in “Diary of A Night Watchman,” Lee Sung Jae, last seen in “The King’s Face,” and Seo I Han, who played Hong Ji Sun in the drama “Kill Me, Heal Me.”
MBC’s “Warm and Cozy” is highly anticipated because the Hong sisters wrote it and the drama-writing duo is a proven hit-maker. Sisters Hong Jung Eun and Hong Mi Ran wrote the scripts for “You’re Beautiful,” “The Master’s Sun,” “The Greatest Love” and “My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho.”
Park Hong Gyoon, who previously worked with the Hong Sisters on “The Greatest Love,” is the director for “Warm and Cozy.”
The comedy is set to air its first episode on May 13.
