Casting news for tvN’s drama project (I Don’t Know Much, But) We Are Family
Kim Ji-suk, Chu Ja-hyun
(I Don’t Know Much, But) We Are Family has recently cast Chu Ja-hyun (Arthdal Chronicles) as the eldest sibling of the titular family. Earlier last month, Han Ye-ri (Nokdu Flower) was cast as the second sister. This new drama is about a family who are like strangers, and strangers who are like family, and the misunderstandings that arise from those relationships.
Chu Ja-hyun’s character is a former patent attorney who graduated from a prestigious university. Now after her marriage, she dreams of living an ordinary life. Because of her pride, she finds it difficult to confide in anyone about her worries and concerns. To her mother and her younger siblings, she seems almost too cool-headed and rational, but to her father, she’s a generous and dependable first child. After her marriage, she begins to feel a distance from her husband and her family, and she begins to experience change in her new life stage.
In related casting news, Jung Jin-young (Chief of Staff 2) and Won Mi-kyung (The Most Beautiful Goodbye, Whisper) have received offers to play the parents of this family. Kim Ji-suk (When the Camellia Blooms) has also received an offer, but his role is yet unclear. These actors are all currently reviewing their parts, and have not confirmed this new project.
tvN’s upcoming drama (I Don’t Know Much, But) We Are Family, directed by Kwon Young-il (Suits) and written by Kim Eun-jung (Flower Boy Next Door), will begin airing in the first half of this year.
