Ji Chang Wook And Shin Hye Sun Confirmed For New Romance Drama By “When The Camellia Blooms” Director



It’s official: Ji Chang Wook and Shin Hye Sun will be starring together in a new romance drama!


On June 19, JTBC confirmed that the two actors would be playing the leads in its upcoming drama “Welcome to Samdalri” (literal title).


Helmed by “When the Camellia Blooms” director Cha Young Hoon, “Welcome to Samdalri” will star Ji Chang Wook as Jo Yong Pil, a man who has faithfully stayed in his hometown on Jeju Island all his life in order to protect its residents.


After losing his mother, who worked as a haenyeo (female diver that harvests sea life for a living), at a young age due to a mistaken weather report, Jo Yong Pil makes up his mind to become a weather forecaster and protect the elders of his hometown. However, his passion and refusal to let misinformation slide earns him a reputation at work as a stubborn troublemaker who isn’t afraid to argue with his boss.


Meanwhile, Shin Hye Sun will star as Jo Sam Dal, who grew up together with Jo Yong Pil as his close childhood friend. Unlike Jo Yong Pil, who was content to remain in his hometown of Samdalri, Jo Sam Dal made it her mission to get out of their small town and move to Seoul.


After years of toiling away as an assistant in the fashion photography industry, Jo Sam Dal—who changes her name to Jo Eun Hye in Seoul—finally succeeds and makes it to the top. However, when everything she’s worked so hard to build comes crashing down in the blink of an eye, she returns to Samdalri, where people still know her as Sam Dal and not Eun Hye.


Although Jo Yong Pil and Jo Sam Dal used to be joined at the hip when they were younger, these once inseparable friends are no longer in contact with one another due to an incident that drove them apart. But when Jo Sam Dal returns to Samdalri, they find that the longtime affection they once had for one another comes rushing back all too easily.


“Welcome to Samdalri” is currently scheduled to premiere in the second half of 2023.
