Synopsis

Takes place against the backdrop of an art museum that belongs to Sung Jin Group, a major conglomerate that holds the reins of the political and financial worlds in South Korea. It is a psychological mystery thriller about the things that disappear when humans become greedy and ambitious for power.

 

Yoon Jae Hee is the head of the Sung Jin Cultural Foundation and in charge of operations at “Space Jin,” the art museum owned by Sung Jin Group. She is also the second daughter-in-law of the family that controls Sung Jin Group. Believing that poverty is corrosive to love and that a stable income leads to a steady life, she chose to throw away her long-time lover and entered into a marriage of convenience with Jung Joon Hyuk, an illegitimate son of Sung Jin Group. In order to make her husband the nation’s president, she teams up with the future Public Prosecutor General and goes to war against Sung Jin Group.

 

Jung Joon Hyuk is Yoon Jae Hee’s husband. Although he is a popular anchorman with his own fan club, he hides an inferiority complex over being labeled “the illegitimate son of Sung Jin Group” for his whole life. He laughs at both ambitious people and those who pretend to have no ambition even as he waits for the day when he can seize the reins of power.

Ohhh didn't realise they finished filming

JTBC announced that its upcoming drama Duke City has finished its first filming.

 

Duke City is a psychological mystery thriller set in an art museum owned by the Sungjin Group, a conglomerate that dominates business and political factions in South Korea. Soo Ae (Sweet Stranger and Me), who is returning to K-dramas after five years, plays the role of Yoon Jae-hee, the second daughter-in-law of Sungjin Group and the one who manages the art museum. She believes that love cannot thrive in poverty and chooses to dump her longtime lover in order to marry an heir of Sungjin Group. That heir is Jung Joon-hyuk, played by Kim Kang-woo (Woman of 9.9 Billion). He is an illegitimate child and has an inferiority complex despite being successful at his career as an anchor. He secretly yearns for power even as his wife goes against Sungjin Group to win him power.

 

The drama also stars Kim Mi-sook (Beautiful Love, Wonderful Life), rookie actor Lee Yi-dam, musical actor Lee Choong-joo, and Lee Hak-joo (Private Lives). Kim Mi-sook faces off against Soo Ae as Seo Han-sook, the chairperson of the Sungjin Cultural Foundation who runs the museum. She is also an influential figure within the Sungjin Group and tries to thwart Jae-hee’s attempts to uplift her husband. Lee Yi-dam plays Kim Yi-seol, a docent of the art museum. She wishes to rise in status in the art world. Lee Hak-joo plays Han Dong-min, a reporter who believes in truth and justice, who is also a fan of Jung Joon-hyuk. Finally, Lee Choong-joo plays Park Jung-ho, a prosecutor at the Central District Prosecutor’s Office who believes in loyalty.

 

Duke City is directed by Jeon Chang-geun, who directed another JTBC drama, Mystic Pop-up Bar (2020), while the script has been penned by Son Se-dong. It is set to air on JTBC in the second half of 2021.

Watch: Soo Ae’s New Drama “Artificial City” Previews Murder, Betrayal, And Terror In First Teasers

Nov 11, 2021 by C. Hong

 

JTBC’s new drama, “Artificial City,” has released a new teaser and posters!

 

“Artificial City” is a new drama starring Soo Ae and Kim Kang Woo that is set in an art museum that belongs to Sung Jin Group, a major conglomerate that holds the reins of the political and financial worlds in South Korea. It is described as a psychological mystery thriller about the greed and ambitions of women who strive to rise to the highest position in Korea.

 

Soo Ae stars as Yoon Jae Hee, the head of the art museum and the second daughter-in-law of the family that controls Sung Jin Group. She is a woman who has a deep love for and obsession with her lifestyle. In her individual posters, she dons an elegant black gown and holds a diamond key tightly in her grip as the caption reads, “A place that everyone desires, but is dangerous for everyone.”

The first teaser previews the blood, murder, assault, and betrayals that take place in the cutthroat world of Sung Jin Group. Although they appear to be a perfect family on the surface, wine soon turns into blood amid scenes of love affairs, attempted drowning, and physical abuse.

 

Yoon Jae Hee is particularly a target of violence, as her husband, Jung Joon Huk (Kim Kang Woo), hurls a glass against the wall in front of her. He is a respected national anchor but harbors an inferiority complex over being the illegitimate son in his family. Yoon Jae HEe is also forced to kneel and threatened at gunpoint, and in one chilling scene, an unnamed woman is dragged by her hair on her knees inside a building on fire.
