On November 18th "Chocolate" released a new teaser video to stoke anticipation for the drama's release on November 29th. "Chocolate" is a romance set inside a hospice. It stars Yoon Kye-sang and Ha Ji-won in the leading roles.
In the drama Yoon Kye-sang plays the role of a cold-hearted neurosurgeon. He connects with a warm-hearted chef, played by Han Ji-won, who uses food to touch the hearts of residents in the hospice. The jTBC drama has been hotly anticipated for reuniting the director/screenwriter team of Lee Hyeong-min and Lee Kyeong-hee from the popular 2004 melodrama "Sorry, I Love You".
The new teaser video emphasizes the Greek architecture that forms much of the backdrop for the drama's scenes. This classical style is perhaps intended to emphasize permanence - or what is now gone, that can't be changed, and what will inevitably disappear in the future. A few lines from the teasers appear to support this thematic idea, one asking if it's not possible to change one's mind, and another mentioning constant trembling.
"Chocolate" will follow "My Country: The New Age" in the Friday/Saturday slot on jTBC. It will be the first drama for Ha Ji-won since "Hospital Ship" in 2017 and the first drama for Yoon Kye-sang since "The Good Wife" in 2016.
