Cable network JTBC confirmed on September 6 that its upcoming drama The Package will premiere on October 13, about two weeks after the end of the currently airing Age of Youth 2. In addition, the TV network released two still images featuring the main cast of the drama led by CNBLUE’s Jung Yong-hwa (The Three Musketeers) and Lee Yeon-hee (Reunited Worlds).
The Package is a romance drama about two individuals who meet in France during a tour. Its title refers to a package trip participated by the two main leads, alongside with other six individuals from different walks of life who take the package for their own reasons. Lee yeon-hee is playing Yoon So-so, the tour guide who will lead the group for 8 days and 10 nights. A former foreign exchange student who studied at a French university, she becomes involved in a romantic relationship with broken-hearted San Ma-roo, played by Jung Yong-hwa, the only solo traveler in the group. The actors playing the remaining travelers are Choi Woo-sik, Ha Shi-eun, Ryu Seung-soo, Park Yoo-na, Jeong Gyu-su, and Lee Ji-hyun.
Choi Woo-sik (Fight For My Way) is playing Kim Gyun-jae, a failed young entrepreneur who has been dating his girlfriend for 10 years. He is actually worried about their relationship now and is contemplating their future, thinking that their trip together in a foreign country could lead to marriage or separation. Ha Shi-eun (Oh Hae Young Again) is playing his game designer girlfriend, Han So-ran.
Ryu Seung-soo (Falsify) and Park Yoo-na (Secret Forest) are playing another couple. Their relationship is unclear, strange, and somehow awkward, drawing the interest and curiosity of other travelers accompanying them. Meanwhile, Jeong Gyu-su (Ruler: Master of the Mask) is playing a stubborn old man and husband to Lee Ji-hyun‘s character.
In addition to the eight travelers, Yoon Park (Introverted Boss) will be appearing in the drama as a mysterious, uninvited guest who travels all the way to France to see Yoon So-so. The second image above shows a solo shot of his character.
The Package is a 12-episode, completely pre-produced drama written by Chun Sung-il of 7th Grade Civil Servant and directed by PDs Jeon Chang-geun and Kim Jin-won of What’s With this Family and Innocent Man, respectively. It will be followed by Untouchable in November.
