When I first heard of the upcoming jTBC drama The Package it didn’t raise any eyebrows on the title but now with the KBS drama Manhole I can’t help sniggering over the possibility of The Package encountering the Manhole. All juvenile jokes aside, The Package was pre-filmed overseas in France on an extensive location shoot that plays central to the entire drama narrative and even the drama title. The Package refers to a tour package, with Lee Yeon Hee playing a Korean tour guide in France who takes a group of South Korean tourists on a package tour, including male lead Jung Yong Hwa who is traveling after a recent breakup. The supporting cast will be all characters on the same package tour and their stories will all intertwine as the 12-episode drama showcases love and personal growth against the backdrop of picturesque France. The Package has just confirmed an airing date for this October on the Fri-Sat time slot after Age of Youth 2, which takes over soon when Woman of Dignity finishes its ratings breaking run.
