On October 31, JTBC released the first video teaser for its upcoming romance melodrama Chocolate, featuring Yoon Kye-sang and Ha Ji-won.
The teaser juxtaposes major themes of the drama—intense emotion, healing, and chocolate—giving the viewers the sense that the two characters have gone through tragedies in their lives. The drama follows the romance of two individuals who learn to heal each other’s past wounds as they volunteer to care for hospice patients.
In the teaser, Ha Ji-won (Hospital Ship) is seen shedding tears and her voice narrates “I eat chocolate when I can’t breathe,” signifying that she turned to chocolate for comfort during difficult times in her life. Which makes sense, considering she plays a famous chef with a positive nature.
Yoon Kye-sang (The Good Wife), meanwhile, is shown overwhelmed with emotion and also shedding tears. He gets injured after a blast, and then a flashback shows him enjoying cooking with chocolate as a child. His voice narrates, “I liked it when I was young, but I stopped eating it.” Yoon plays a neurosurgeon who used to like cooking. He is a warm and sensitive man but hides his emotions.
The rest of the teaser features gorgeous clips of a hilltown and concludes with Yoon Kye-sang and Ha Ji-won sitting side by side on a bridge over the river. They share soju, looking like a picture-perfect couple—a scene that is also featured in the first poster of the drama.
Chocolate will premiere on November 29, replacing the ongoing historical series My Country: The New Age.
