The new drama “King the Land” starring Lee Jun Ho and Im Yoona is about to be unveiled.
“King the Land” tells the story of luxury hotel conglomerate The King Group’s heir Goo Won (Lee Jun Ho), who was thrown into an inheritance war, and Cheon Sa Rang (Im Yoona), a hotelier who always has a smile on her face till she meets Goo Won.
In JTBC’s new Saturday-Sunday drama “King the Land” (written by Choi Rom, directed by Im Hyun Wook, produced by Npio Entertainment, By4m Studio, SLL), which will premiere at 10:30 PM today (June 17th), King Group’s heir Goo Won (Lee Jun Ho) will shake King Group as an undercover intern.
Goo Won, who entered King Group as an intern while hiding that he is the son of King Group’s chairman Goo Il Hoon (Son Byung Ho), puts the employees in confusion and astonishment with his attitude and behaviors that are not like an intern’s. He leaves a strong first impression by acting in his own way even in unfamiliar corporate culture and work environment.
In the released still cuts, Goo Won is showing a relaxed and calm appearance all the time even though he is an intern. Even when his friend Noh Sang Sik (Ahn Se Ha) runs around holding an object with black smoke rising, he just watches with his arms crossed and shows no signs of bewilderment. To make matters worse, Goo Won freezes the office with unusual behaviors, such as calmly refuting the boss’s words.
Noh Sang Sik is the only one who lends a helping hand to Goo Won, who is considered a problematic intern from the first day at work. Amid various incidents, Goo Won is expected to adjust to Korea while gradually learning how to survive at work.
Attention is focused on whether “King the Land”, which revealed suspicious intern Lee Jun Ho’s chaotic first day at work, will be able to catch viewers’ attention firmly.
Starting with Song Joong Ki and Lee Sung Min’s “Reborn Rich” last year, JTBC continues to gain many hot Saturday-Sunday dramas, including Lee Bo Young’s “Agency” and Uhm Jung Hwa’s “Doctor Cha”. “Reborn Rich” recorded the highest viewership rating of 26.9% (Nielsen Korea nationwide), and “Doctor Cha” also received great attention as it ended at 18.5%.
The romantic comedy “King the Land”, which has a 180-degree different atmosphere from its previous works, raises curiosity about whether it will be able to continue JTBC’s success energy with Lee Jun Ho and Im Yoona.
