Jang Yoon-Ha is the youngest daughter of a chaebol (family owned conglomeration). Even though her family is extremely wealthy, she holds a part-time job at a food market. She hides her background as an heiress and attempts to find a man that loves her for herself.
“High Society” takes over the SBS Monday & Tuesday 21:55 time slot previously occupied by “Heard It Through the Grapevine” and will be replaced by “Mrs. Cop” August, 2015.
Actress Moon Geun-Young and actor Park Seo-Joon were offered the lead roles, but declined the offers. Park Seo-Joon appears in supporting roles in two films (“The Chronicles of Evil” and “The Beauty Inside”) and opted to spend time promoting those films.
Early working title was “Chaebolui Ddal” (“Chaebol’s Daughter”) then changed to “True Romance” and then changed to “Sangryusawhe” (“High Society”).
