“The Matchmakers” is a rom-com drama set during the Joseon dynasty. It tells the story of the meeting between the young widow Jung Soon Deok and young widower Shim Jung Woo as well as the struggle the two go through together to marry off the four young maidens who represent Joseon.
Rowoon will take on the role of Shim Jung Woo who is brilliant enough to become the youngest person to pass the Civil Service Exam. However, he is also a person of misfortune whose chances for a successful career and marriage slip away due to the death of a princess during the wedding ceremony.
Cho Yi Hyun will play Jung Soon Deok, the second daughter-in-law of the first vice-premier’s family. She lives a double life as Mrs. Yeo Joo, the best matchmaker in Hanyang City.
Park Ji Young, who showcased her solid acting skills through “Revenant,” will portray Park So Hyun, also known as Mrs. Park, a powerful figure who made her husband the left minister, her younger brother a byungpan (similar to a minister of national defense in Joseon Dynasty), and her youngest sister a concubine.
Jo Han Chul, who impressed in “Weak Hero Class 1” and “Reborn Rich,” will play the role of a king who wants to make Dr. Maeng’s three daughters get married within two months.
Jung Shin Hye, who impressed through the dramas “My Perfect Stranger” and “Cheer Up,” will play foul-mouthed Maeng Ha Na, the first daughter of Dr. Maeng.
Park Ji Won will take on the role of Dr. Maeng’s second daughter Maeng Doo Ri, the novelist who dresses up as a man to deliver books.
The production team remarked, “‘The Matchmakers’ will greet viewers with comfortable laughter that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and genders as well as a unique historical rom-com drama that will transform the vibes of late fall when the cold wind begins to blow into heart-fluttering excitement.”
