'Woori the Virgin': Trailer for Korean remake of 'Jane the Virgin' teases tricky love triangle
While expectations soar skyward, some fans are unsure if the remake will be as good as the original
SBS is bringing in some hot Kdramas in 2022. After the successful ‘Business Proposal’ series, the network is all set to make fans go wild with ‘Woori the Virgin’. SBS has released a new teaser for the series starring Im Soo Hyang, Sung Hoon, and Shin Dong Wook. Previously known as 'Starting Today, We,' ‘Woori the Virgin’ is a remake of the American romantic comedy 'Jane The Virgin,' which in turn is based on a successful Venezuelan telenovela.
Oh Woo Ri (Im Soo Hyang) is a popular soap opera's assistant scriptwriter who has been dating Lee Kang Jae (Shin Dong Wook) for two years. Oh Woo Ri grows into a model child as a result of her father's absence and her grandmother's strict parenting. However, she becomes pregnant after a medical exam goes wrong, and the baby's father is Raphael, the CEO of a cosmetics company (Sung Hoon). The romantic comedy will show how Oh Woo Ri makes decisions and moves forward despite being thrust into a difficult scenario.
The teaser begins with Oh Woo Ri (Im Soo Hyang) catching a bouquet accidentally at a friend's wedding. Following that, she is informed that she will have to marry within the next six months. Oh Woo Ri makes an effort to advance in her work and declares, “I’m a writer! I don’t want to lose focus in my life,” but things don't seem to be going her way. When the teaser introduces Oh Woo Ri's boyfriend, Lee Kang Jae, we can see their relationship looking pleasant, but Oh Woo Ri sighs, "Why can't I make up my mind about getting married to Kang Jae?" Later, we see her say that she is pregnant and the scene moves to the baby's father, Raphael (Sung Hoon), who is seen at a party dancing.
When does ‘Woori the Virgin’ air?
The production team of ‘Woori the Virgin’ said, “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.” ‘Woori The Virgin' will air on SBS every Monday to Tuesday after premiering on May 9, 2022, at 10 pm KST, replacing ‘Business Proposal’. It will consist of 14 episodes, each 70 minutes long.
After the teaser came out, fans were enthralled to see how the Korean industry bring out such a captivating story. One user wrote on Twitter, “WOORI THE VIRGIN OMSHDJDJS I GOTTA WATCH THIS” while another said, “WE ALSO GOT WOORI THE VIRGIN TEASER ALREADY OMG.
