I was planning on checking out upcoming SBS Mon-Tues drama High Society (formerly Chaebol’s Daughter) no matter what. I loved the teaser promos with leads UEE and Sung Joon making out with youthful tenderness, not to mention the first drama previews looked interesting on the narrative front. UEE is a chaebol’s youngest daughter who goes undercover as a market clerk, hiding her rich identity to find a man who loves her without strings attached. Sung Joon is a smart go-getter from a poor family who is calculating in climbing the success ladder and finds himself falling for UEE, both for her personality and for her wealth.
Park Hyung Sik is the UEE male equivalent, a chaebol’s son who embraces his wealthy background while falling for real poor girl played by Lim Ji Yeon. The dual couple set up is one of my faves because it allows for some exploration of a love triangle (quadrangle) while keeping a mutually happy end game plausible. The just released official drama posters continues the positive trend, sending my interest level one step higher with artistically creative compositions which bring a breath of fresh air in a quagmire of dull and duller drama posters. The Warhol-esque one has cool taglines and great color visuals while the one with everyone doing photo booth shots is beyond adorable.
