SBS has shared the first look at Im Soo Hyang in her upcoming “Jane the Virgin” remake!
“Woori the Virgin” is a Korean remake of the American rom-com “Jane the Virgin,” which is based on a Venezuelan telenovela. The drama is about a woman named Oh Woo Ri (Im Soo Hyang), who is strictly maintaining her chastity before marriage, but ends up pregnant after an accident occurs during a medical exam.
Oh Woo Ri is an assistant screenwriter of a popular soap opera who has been dating her boyfriend Lee Kang Jae (Shin Dong Wook) for two years. Due to her father’s absence and her grandmother’s harsh parenting, Oh Woo Ri responsibly grows up as a model child.
After her medical exam goes wrong, Oh Woo Ri finds herself pregnant, with the baby’s father being cosmetics company CEO Raphael (Sung Hoon). This rom-com story will capture how Oh Woo Ri is able to make decisions and move forward, even when placed in such a shocking and unexpected situation.
Oh April 18, SBS released the first photos of Im Soo Hyang as Oh Woo Ri. Her soft gaze and lovely aura depict how Oh Woo Ri was brought up under very tender and protective care.
The next photos show Oh Woo Ri in a less comfortable state as she looks confused and lost in complicated thought. These first photos portray how normally Oh Woo Ri used to live, until finding herself in a life-changing situation.
The producers of “Woori the Virgin” commented, “To the point where we could say that Im Soo Hyang herself is Oh Woo Ri, she has been showing us such perfect immersion into her character. On top of that, she’s added her detailed acting to lead the project in becoming even more realistic. Please give lots of attention to discovering how the synergy of Im Soo Hyang’s character is displayed.”
SBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama will premiere on May 9 at 10 p.m. KST.
