In the series, Yoon Kye Sang plays the role of a cold-hearted brain surgeon named Lee Kang. While living a rigid life led by his career alone, Lee Kang meets a warmhearted chef named Moon Cha Young, played by Ha Ji Won, at a hospice ward.
'Chocolate' will be produced and written by star director Lee Hyung Min and scriptwriter Lee Kyung Hee, who previously worked together for 2004 drama 'I'm Sorry, I Love You'. This will mark Yoon Kye Sang's first small-screen production in 3 years, as well as Ha Ji Won's return to the small-screen in approximately 2 years.
JTBC's 'Chocolate' is expected to bring viewers a healing, soft and traditional romance, airing later this year after 'My Country'.
