I have always seen Jang Na Ra (The Last Empress) in a light romance or comedy and so it is like a breath of fresh air to see her in a melodrama with pinch of mystery involved. She is starring in upcoming SBS drama VIP with Lee Sang Yoon (Liar Game), and the show is about a department store’s team who works for VIP clients, constituting 1% of their total clientele.
Lee Sang Yoon plays the leader of this team while Jang Na Ra plays his wife, who is also the member of the VIP management team. Also starring is Lee Chung Ah (Vampire Detective) as a very efficient employee of this store who deals with the most VIP clients. Pyo Ye Jin (What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?) stars as a contract employee while Shin Jae Ha (While You Were Sleeping) rounds out the cast as the new employee.
I’m not sure what is going to be the exact plot going forward. I wonder if it is going to be an episodic show, with dealing with multiple stories of various clients. It is starting on October 28 and will be a Monday-Tuesday drama.
