MBC introduced the melodrama “The Brave Yong Soo Jung” on May 6, with Seo Joon Young, Uhm Hyun Kyung, Im Ju Eun, and Kwon Hwa Woon taking on the lead roles.

Helmed by Lee Min Soo of “The Secret House” and Kim Mi Sook of the 2019 series “Bad Love,” the newly released K-drama “The Brave Yong Su Jeong” depicts an exhilarating and heart-fluttering journey of romance and revenge.

Taking on the titular role of Yong Soo Jung (Uhm Hyun Kyung), she is a popular shopping host who has garnered a ton of female fans for her straightforward personality and honest reviews.

However, despite her strong personality on camera, Soo Jung can’t express her feelings towards a man; even just an eye contact makes her flustered.

Due to this, her romantic life is struggling. However, things changed when she met the successor of the Masung Group, Joo Woo Jin, played by Kwon Hwa Woon, whom she had a secret crush on.

While Soo Jung was swooned over by Woo Jin’s charm, Yeo Eui Joo, played by Seo Joon Young, entrusted his fate to Soo Jung for one reason.

Airing over MBC, viewers get to see the dynamics of Seo Joon Young, Uhm Hyun Kyung, Im Ju Eun, and Kwon Hwa Woon as “The Brave Yong Soo Jung” airs every Monday to Friday at 7:05 p.m. KST.

Other than MBC, the melodrama is also available for global viewers by streaming through Viki.
