Cheongdam-dong Alice: Character Introductions

by: Raine

Here are character introductions based on various sources. I’ll update them after I watch the first episode with subs!

character introductions

Cha Seung-jo

Actor: Park Shi-hoo

Nickname: Psycho-jo, Psycho

He is the young president of a leading global luxury goods distribution company Artemis.  He’s a charismatic, rich, love-jaded man who doesn’t trust women anymore. But how much do you wanna bet he’ll change his mind for Moon Geun-young?

Han Se-kyung

Actor: Moon Geun-young

Nickname: none

A run-of-the-mill human of the female persuasion who ends up lost down the rabbit hole. The hardworking Candy-type arrives in psychoville aka Cheongdam-dong where everyone is rich, pretty, well-dressed and mean. She learns the meaning of love via chaebol handiwork. Apparently, she also wants to be a designer AND a Cheongdam-dong daughter-in-law (i.e. marry rich into a family of Cheongdam-dong.)

Tommy Hong

Actor: Kim Ji-suk

Nickname: none

The dude is 35, quite the catch and a coveted man for women who want to marry up. He takes it upon himself to make some normal chick a Cheongdam-dong daughter-in-aw. Hrm, I wonder where THAT is going?

Seo Yoon-joo

Actor: So Yi-hyun

Nickname: Tick Girl, the Tick

Our evil second lead who has a perminant tick on her neck, sucking out her blood. (It’s just a mole, but it grosses me out.) The women has serious inferiority issues and married rich ’cause she’s a devious bitch. Lo and behold, she is also Park Shi-hoo’s ex-girlfriend who reuined him for every other woman.

Now I have to hunt her down and kill her.

Also, she has become Moon Geun-young’s boss and plans to torture her for every minute of sixteen episodes. Hooray.

Seo Ho-min

Actor: Goo Won

Nickname: None

Yoon-joo’s brother. Haven’t met him yet. Maybe episode 3?

Secretary Moon

Actor: Choi Sung Jun

Nickname: None

Seung-jo’s secretary who gets to witness firsthand how psycho his boss is.

Han Se-jin

Actor: Shin Hye-jung

Nickname: None

She plays Moon Geun-young’s little sister who has a warm heart, she has an outgoing personality , loves to hang-out with friends.

Han Deuk-ki

Actor: Jung In-ki

Nickname: None

Se-kyung’s father.

Jung Yoon-hee

Actor: Lee Jong-nam

Nickname: None

Se-kyung’s mother.

Shin In-hwa

Actor: Kim Yoo-ri

Nickname: None

Jian Clothing Group’s youngest daughter, youngest design director and boss to new designer Han Se-yung. She likes Cha Seung-jo and will do everything in order to interfere with their relationship.

That’s what I got from Viki. Basically, she’s another evil wench with too much money. She also really doesn’t like Yoon-joo.

Choi Ah-jung

Actor: Shin So-yool

Nickname: None

She is adorable and makes me want to watch Answer Me 1997 again. Oh yeah, she’s Moon Geun-young’s best friend.

Cha Il-nam

Actor: Han Jin-hee

Nickname: Daddio

Seung-jo’s daddy who is not financially supporting his son. In fact, his son has far surpassed him and enjoys rubbing it in dad’s face. I wonder what the tension is there.

Heo Dong-wook

Actor: Park Kwang-hyung

Nickname: None

An advertising company President and Creative Director. He is also the son of the Chairman of General Hospital and Seung Joo’s best friend.

That’s what the official site says. But what I gathered was that he was a shrink or a doctor because he gave Seung-jo a pen that he uses to record his sessions with. I think that says doctor more than businessman, don’t you?

So In-chan

Actor: Nam Goong-min

Nickname: None

Se-kyung’s ex who loves her but is in serious debt and keeps trying to break up with her because of it. He cries a lot.

Shin Min-hyuk

Actor: Kim Seung-soo

Nickname: None

Yoon-joo’s hubby who is the president of GN Fashion and is oblivious to his wife’s evilness.
