The first teaser for upcoming SBS drama High Society (formerly Chaebol’s Daughter) just took my interest level from “I think I’ll watch it” to “Wild horses can’t drag me away from watching it!”. This is probably my favorite K-drama teaser of 2015, hitting every single one of my happy nodes. There’s reams of romance in multiple settings from coffee shop to street corner to Romeo and Juliet balcony redux. Best of all the chemistry between the two leads Sung Joon and UEE is intense and palpable, thrumming with interest and awareness for each other. I don’t know what to expect of the drama story but if there is as much touching and kissing in the drama as is going on in the teaser then I’m so signing on for the entire run even if the story majorly sucks. This is the first K-drama OTP this year that has me feeling sexual chemistry as opposed to merely sweet love, almost like a cable romance getting a prime time showcase. Dammit, now SBS has made me impatient for this to arrive.
