"VIP" is coming out on October 28th and a character correlation chart has come out to help prospective fans keep track of which characters are related to who. As expected, Jang Nara and Lee Sang-yoon appear at the center of the chart, flanked by their co-workers in the VIP support team.
Beyond that, character relationships are somewhat vague. Choi Hong-il and Kim Mi-kyung are labeled as the parents of Jang Nara. Jung Ae-ri is labeled as the mother of Lee Sang-yoon. Jang Nara and Lee Sang-yoon are, of course, each other's spouses. But beyond these specific relationships, the various character zones are not clearly defined. Lee Sang-yoon is depicted as being in a natural relationship with Jung Joon-won-I, but it's not clear what this is supposed to mean.
Another factor of note is that the overall design and palette of the character correlation chart appears dark, foreboding, and ominous. It's a curious tonal choice for a drama about a department store specialty team, although the accuracy of the chart will be easier to gauge when the drama comes out next week.
