Yoon Kye-sang, Ha Ji-won are drinking buddies in first ‘Chocolate’ teaser

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.

Indoor Enthusiast (Esha) is a staff writer at Kdramapal. She is responsible for bringing all the latest happenings in Kdramaland, as well as features and recaps of currently airing dramas, to the readers of the site. As a gender studies student, she loves analyzing K-dramas through the lens of gender politics and social justice. You're most likely to find her droning on and on about how Ji Hae-soo from It's Okay That's Love and Sung Bora from Reply 1988 are the best heroines to ever grace our screens. Her favorite dramas tend to be thrillers like Secret Forest and Signal, as well as heartwarming shows like Misaeng. When not in the mood for either of those, you can find her binging on shows about female friendships a la Age of Youth or rom-coms that come with sprinklings of feminism, like Because This Life Is My First. She lives in India, spends all her free time reading books, and would love nothing more than to meet Gong Hyo-jin and sign away her life's earnings to the actress.
