It's been a long wait, but Choi Ji Woo finally returns to television in 2007 with the highly anticipated MBC drama Air City, her first Korean drama since 2003's Stairway to Heaven. Co-star Lee Jung Jae, the lead of such popular films as Typhoon and Il Mare, has been away from television even longer, nine years to be exact. Rising star Lee Jin Wook (Someday) and the versatile Moon Jung Hee (A Happy Woman) round out the amazing cast. With the Incheon International Airport as backdrop, this stylish, big-budget drama revolves around the work and romance of four airport personnel, giving a chance for viewers to witness the inner workings of the airline industry. Boosting the drama's draw even further is the pen of screenwriter Choi Wan Kyu, the man behind Jumong, Hur Jun, and countless other popular dramas.
Level-headed operations chief Han Do Kyung (Choi Ji Woo) remains cool and calm under all circumstances - that is until she meets rash NIS agent Kim Ji Sung (Lee Jung Jae). Acting on instinct whenever he thinks national security is at stake, he often breaks rules and ruffles feathers on the job, bringing him into constant contact, and sometimes conflict, with Do Kyung. Though strong on the outside, both Do Kyung and Ji Sung are struggling with memories and misgivings from the past, and Do Kyung finds herself gradually falling for Ji Sung. Adding to her confusion are her evolving friendships with longtime friend and security personnel Ha Joon (Lee Jin Wook) and airport director Myung Woo (Moon Jung Hee), who also happens to be Ji Sung's ex-girlfriend.
