JTBC’s upcoming romance drama “King the Land” has shared a sneak peek of Girls’ Generation’s YoonA and 2PM’s Lee Junho’s awkward first encounter!
“King the Land” will tell the story of the unlikely romance between Gu Won (2PM’s Lee Junho), a chaebol heir who can’t stand fake smiles, and the constantly smiling Cheon Sa Rang (Girls’ Generation‘s YoonA), who becomes known as the “queen of smiles” while working her way up through the ranks of the King Hotel.
While the previously released teaser gave viewers a glimpse into Gu Won’s character, the fourth teaser introduces the many charms of Cheon Sa Rang. The new teaser begins with Cheon Sa Rang’s bright greeting as she introduces herself as one of the employees at the King Hotel’s VVIP lounge “King the Land.” Due to the nature of her profession, Cheon Sa Rang is always equipped with a bright smile even when she does not want to. While flaunting her so-called “Hermès smile,” Cheon Sa Rang remarks, “Smile and smile some more. I even practice smiling in my sleep.”
However, unlike her smile which is the fruit of her continuous effort and hard work, there are two things that Cheon Sa Rang’s naturally born with: her high spirit and her bad drinking habit. The teaser shows Cheon Sa Rang getting more chirpy and lively the more she drinks to the point that she ends up dissing and roasting the man next to her relentlessly.
Later when she finds out that that very man is Gu Won, the new general manager of King Hotel where she works, she tries to avoid him at all costs, but to no avail. To make matters worse, Gu Won seems to remember everything crystal clear as he eerily says to Cheon Sa Rang, “We meet again.” Despite declaring that she’s “not the type to do such thing as regret” when she was drunk, the next scene shows Cheon Sa Rang shouting at the top of her lungs, “Save me!”
At the end of the video, the teaser hints at an upcoming event that can be a turning point in the two’s relationship as someone recommends that Gu Won go with the ever-so-friendly Cheon Sa Rang to the “battlefield” as the company’s representative. Upon hearing this, Cheon Sa Rang asks in bewilderment, “I’m going to the battlefield?!”
