Han Ye-ri confirmed for new tvN family drama
tvN has announced a new drama in the works called (I Don’t Know Much, But) We Are Family. The synopsis depicts a complex drama focused on relationships between friends who are like family, and family who are like strangers, with all the misunderstandings and understandings in between. Han Ye-ri (Nokdu Flower) has confirmed that she will be starring in the drama; she’ll be taking on the role of a publishing company employee who is the second oldest daughter in her family.
As the middle child, she who occupies a unique position in her family’s sibling hierarchy. Perhaps because of her upbringing, she’s tenderhearted and she easily trusts in people. Furthermore, because of how considerate and sincere she is, she’s served as the “Ask Amy” of her social circles. Han Ye-ri’s character has always been willing to listen and give considered advice to her acquaintances since she was in school. During the drama, she has to navigate the ups-and-downs of an unexpected breakup, a surprising new meeting, and changes that upend her entire family.
The drama’s premise around the quotidien aspects of familial bonds begins with the concept of growth. As children grow up, they usually end up spending less time with their parents and may they grow apart as they try to set out and live their own lives. In due course, they create new bonds with peoplewho they can share their secrets with. Sometimes, friends can know us better than family–and maybe even better than we know ourselves.
Director Kwon Young-il (Search Query: WWW) and writer Kim Eun-jung (Flower Boy Next Door) have teamed up to create (I Don’t Know Much, But) We Are Family, so I’m expecting a heartwarming slice-of-life type of drama. This tvN drama will air sometime in the beginning half of this year.
