I normally associate chocolate with joy since it’s so darn tasty but this bon bon looks sad as heck in the first official poster and preview for jTBC drama Chocolate. Chef and baker Ha Ji Won falls in love with doctor Yoon Kye Sang against the picturesque backdrop of the countryside and plenty of food porn shots of chocolate infused cooking. I’m not overly concerned about the melodrama aspects since it’s from melo queen screenwriter Lee Kyung Hee and she’s always able to milk the angst in new ways that wring tears out of my heart. I hope the drama isn’t too too slow and plodding, there’s gotta be some tension and sweet pain to make me root for the two years to overcome what appears to be lingering sadness from loss that binds them together.
