Lee So Yeon and Choi Yeo Jin to star in a new KBS drama together!
Both actresses have been confirmed to appear in the upcoming KBS 2TV weekday drama “Miss Monte Cristo” (literal title), which is scheduled to premiere in early February 2021.
In keeping with its title, which refers to the classic French novel “The Count of Monte Cristo,” “Miss Monte Cristo” will be a revenge suspense drama about a woman whose life was destroyed by the friends she trusted most. After deciding to get revenge on those who betrayed her, she returns to claim her life that was stolen from her.
In her first dramatic role in over a year and a half, Lee So Yeon will play the tragic protagonist Gong Eun Jo, an up-and-coming fashion designer who aspires to make “cheerful” clothes like her late father. Just as she begins to find success in both her job and her love life, she ends up losing everything in the blink of an eye when her friends betray her.
Meanwhile, Choi Yeo Jin will make her long-awaited return to the small screen as Oh Ha Ra, a wealthy chaebol heiress and socialite who ends up becoming Gong Eun Jo’s rival. Despite her arrogance, Oh Ha Ra suffers from an inferiority complex for being the daughter of a chaebol’s lover, and is known to be a troublemaker within her social sphere.
Although the caring Gong Eun Jo is the only friend Oh Ha Ra trusts enough to open up about her true feelings, her friendship eventually falls apart when they become entangled in a love triangle with the same man.
“Miss Monte Cristo” will begin airing in February 2021, following the conclusion of KBS 2TV’s “A Man in a Veil”.
