Pickpockets make the best neighbors in new JTBC drama Yoo-na’s Street

With JTBC’s current Monday-Tuesday drama Secret Love Affair coming to a close this week, it’s already time to usher in the next series — the quirky crime family comedy (at least I think that’s the genre anyway) called Yoo-na’s Street. It stars Kim Ok-bin (Sword and Flower) as a legendary pickpocket and member of a crime family, and Lee Hee-joon (God of the Workplace) as the sweet mild-mannered new neighbor who falls for her.

The new drama comes from the PD-writer team behind The Duo (the writer also penned Seoul Moon), and stars Kim Ok-bin as the daughter of a pickpocket who learned the trade from her father and is already famous in her own right (with a prolific rap sheet of her very own). She works with a ragtag family of other con artists, including the always hilarious Lee Moon-shik and Jo Hee-bong, and they’re pretty slick in action in the teaser below.

Things take an interesting turn when they get a new neighbor — Lee Hee-joon moves into the multiplex house where the crime family lives, and the salt-of-the-earth good boy next door starts to change them all for the better. The thing is, he’s introduced in his character poster as a detective, which makes me think he’s not living in that house for the cheap rent. Perhaps his is the ultimate con, and we’ll be left to sort out everyone’s cover stories from the truth.

It sounds a little bit like Catch Me with its cops-‘n’-robbers setup, and potentially fun in a zany way. I’m not quite sure if it’ll veer more towards rom-com or heist flick, but judging from the promo materials, I think we’re in for some laughs.

Yoo-na’s Street premieres May 19.

hahaha this looks like a fun concept and I like Kim Ok-bin and the supporting cast.

Also, I need a new drama to watch her in so I can erase Sword & Flower from my brain as being associated with her at all.

I think JTBC's Secret Love Affiar is 20 episodes and won't wrap for another 2 weeks - at least that's what Dramawiki & Asianwiki have it listed as... has that been changed?

It is 16 episodes. That what the writer wants to end it.

This looks like so much fun and I LOVE Jo Hee Bong. I'll watch anything with him cause he's so hilarious. I was sad he had such a small part in My Love From Another Star.

Sounds like an interesting premise but I hope it doesn't turn out like a horrible wreck the way Sword and the Flower did (which also started with an interesting premise). I'm sure Kim OkBin can pull off a tough female if the writer can keep the tough girl tough.

Yay! Now, this is the exact opposite of the "hero's girlfriend" role Jung So-min and Yuri got stuck with. Kim Ok Bin is obviously the queen of that group and she should be great fun to watch in action.

Also who is on JTBC's creative team? These posters are killing the game! SLA's posters were really good, too. O:

If the posters are at least half as advertised, then I think this drama has the potential to be good and fun! I know not to completely base my expectations on promo posters, but I can't help it if the whole cast is chock-full of actors that I love (just don't know the young guy) and the premise brings back memories of Bad Family (which I loved).

Here's to hoping Kim Ok-bin will have this be a successful run, wiping the memory of Sword and Flower from my mind...

My ahjusshi crush is in this!!! Yay. So watching this ya'll. I wonder how she is though, as an actor. From what I heard her Seguek sucks so maybe a romcom would suit her better?
