When Lee Kang-Jae (Shin Dong-Wook), her boyfriend, appears, the mood changes in an instant, producing a surrogate excitement. Like any other couple, Oh Woori and Lee Kang-Jae go about their daily lives and grow in love, but her circumstances were unique. “Why am I not determined to marry Kang Jae-Oppa?” Oh Woori asks, causing an odd tension between the two.

The mother-daughter chemistry between Woori and her mother, who got pregnant during her High School and gave birth to Woori when she was only 16.

Woori’s innocent and caring grandmother who made Woori pledge to abstain from sex before marriage. But when she hears Woori is pregnant it broke her heart.

The husband-wife relationship of Raphael and Lee Mari. Raphael wants to divorce her wife but she does everything like planning and plotting with her mother to stop her divorce from Raphael.

Overall, Woori the Virgin was a light and refreshing watch with lots of laughter.

Meanwhile, the relationship between A&E Korea and Group 8, in particular, is attracting industry attention since it demonstrates outstanding synergy from the start of the broadcast. A&E’s investment in Korean production and Group Eight’s capacity to produce was stated to be an outstanding move to capture both box office and quality of work.

When it came to funding the production of ‘Woori The Virgin,’ we chose to invest based on our knowledge of the American original, and as a result, we helped to create innovative works that break the mould, they said. Group 8 knows how to showcase innovative works by reinterpreting content across genres like musicals and plays, as well as successfully transforming cartoons into dramas. Their understanding of the value of content and the likelihood of success in a local remake of an American original was also beneficial in this drama. ‘Jane the Virgin’ is claimed to have been recently released with a texture that matches the domestic sentiment.
