Hong sisters' new drama Jeju Island Gatsby holds first script reading
With Yoo Yun Suk (Answer Me 1994) and Kang So Ra (Doctor Stranger) leading the first script reading, production is officially rolling on the Hong sisters' upcoming drama Jeju Island Gatsby about a group of young people who ditch their big city lives to build relationships on beautiful Jeju Island.
The new romantic comedy will revolve around a group of young people who work in a restaurant named Warm and Cozy after deciding to move to the countryside to heal from their past in the big city.
The central romance is described as being an unlikely relationship between an ant and a grasshopper (in reference to Aesop's Fable "The Ant and the Grasshopper" in which a lazy grasshopper is warned to store food for the winter by a hardworking ant). One character is akin to an "ant with anger issues," and the other is akin to a "grasshopper with a lack of affection." It has not been revealed which type Yoo Yun Suk and Kang So Ra's characters are, but we do know that the pair will slowly fall in love as they learn to run the Warm and Cozy together.
Who do you think will play "the ant" and who do you think will play "the grasshopper"? Are you excited to see this latest drama by the Hong sisters? You can see the entire collection of their dramas HERE. See their most recent drama, The Master's Sun, below:
