The first episode of SBS' new Monday & Tuesday drama, "High Society" aired the first encounter between two men and two women from the different social classes.
"High Society" depicts the interlaced love stories among the four young people: Jang Yoon-ha (UEE) from chaebol family, who can throw away everything in order to achieve true love, Choi Joon-gi (Sung Joon), who throws away everything he has in order to fulfill his ambition, Lee Ji-yi (Lim Ji-yeon), who has to choose between friendship and love, Yoo Chang-soo (Park Hyung-sik), whose life is in trouble because of one woman, the only thing he cannot own despite the fact he can own everything else he wants.
Firstly, Jang Yoon-ha (Lee Ji-yi) appeared as a part time worker who works in a grocery store. Jang Yoon-ha's character as a woman who seeks true love over conditional love or money added a refreshing touch to the beginning of the drama.
On the contrary, Choi Joon-gi (Park Hyung-sik), who was born in a poor family and sought after success, prioritizes conditions and money over love.
How the two clearly contrasting characters will be interlaced throughout the drama is drawing attention. As Choi Joon-gi was assigned to the department where Jang Yoon-ha and Lee Ji-yi work together, the relationship will become more complicated.
The refreshing appeals by the four actors and their acting performances are the focal points of the drama. While Park Hyung-sik revealed his appeals playing the second generation chaebol figure, Sung Joon and UEE also led the storyline with their stable acting performances. Lim Ji-yeon, whose acting career was mostly on big screens, also immersed herself into her role with her natural acting performances.
