The first thing I did when I heard about this drama was wonder what Korean netizens were saying about it. Were they excited or weary of it due to the leads’ acting skills?
Anyway, what is it about? From AsianWiki:
Yoon So-So (Lee Yeon-Hee) works as a travel guide in France. She leads a group of tourists on a package tour. The travelers all have their own stories. San Ma-Roo (Jung Yong-Hwa) joined the tour after being dumped by his girlfriend. Kim Gyung-Jae (Choi Woo-Sik) has been dating for the past 10 years. A mysterious man (Yoon Park) seems to follow Yoon So-So. Jung Yeon-Sung (Ryu Seung-Soo) joined the package tour with a partner, but he will not reveal what kind of relationship they are in. Han So-Ran (Ha Shi-Eun) is a web designer and agonizes over staying single or marriage. Oh Gab-Soo (Jeong Gyu-Su) is extremely stubborn. Han Book-Ja (Lee Ji-Hyeon) spent most of her life taking care of her husband. Na Hyun (Park Yoo-Na) is a woman whom other people cannot guess her age.
They all do not want to become involved in each other’s personal lives, but, while they travel together, they become closer and develop relationships.
Choi Woo Sik is in it! I don’t know why but I love that kid. This sounds like an ensemble drama with something for everyone. It takes over Age of Youth 2‘s time slot and could capture that audience.
I’m loving the cinematography and it has the potential to be a nice escape for those who’d like to travel more but can’t find the time for it. Perhaps it will inspire us to make some?
The Package premieres on October 13th on JTBC.
