K-Drama fans, you’re in luck!
“The Privileged” is set to spice up your life via ONE HD, with After School UEE’s journey on finding true love while hiding her “chaebol” (wealthy or family owned conglomeration) identity.
Formerly named “Chaebol’s Daughter” and “High Society”, the drama follows Jang Yoon-ha (played by UEE), the daughter of a rich family as she tries to hide her status in society. Even though her family is extremely wealthy, she holds a part-time job at a supermarket. Her dream? To find a man who loves her for who she is. But instead, she meets a man who thinks love is just a tool that allows the rich to emotionally manipulate others – Choi Joon-ki.
Choi Joon-ki (played by Sung Joon), on the other hand, grew up in extreme poverty and has a huge chip on his shoulder about his poor parents being belittled. Now working as a middle manager for a conglomerate, Joon-ki is smart and talented but also jaded and calculating. He doesn’t waste his time with anything that won’t help him get ahead and believes that love is a luxury only for the wealthy.
Then, there’s Yoo Chang-soo (played by Park Hyung Sik), an heir to the shopping mall company where the supermarket located. Yoon-ha is indifferent to Chang-soo, sparking his interest in the seemingly humble shop clerk.
