Kim Hye-joon and Oh Nara in first stills for United Effort to Accomplish One Thing
Dark mystery-comedy drama United Effort to Accomplish One Thing has released a new poster and more promo stills. For their own respective reasons, nine individuals come together and try to out-scheme each other to seize the final legacy of a famous artist: his multi-million-dollar wealth.
In the poster, everyone is gathered at the dinner table enjoying wine, while Kim Hye-joon (Kingdom) stares straight at camera. The caption is almost unnecessary because her expression says it all: “Together in this shitty house.”
Kim Hye-joon plays a college student who is the biological daughter of the famous artist. She arrives at the main residence to celebrate her father’s birthday. She’s both an observer and the most important deciding factor in who wins her father’s assets.
Oh Nara (9.9 Billion Won Woman) plays Kim Hye-joon’s mom and the artist’s former mistress. She used to be a successful model and is still stuck in reverie of her heyday. She doesn’t hide her greed for money or her suspicions about other people.
The others pursuing her deceased lover’s millions include the following: Kim Jung-young (Sweet Munchies), Nam Moon-chul (Nokdu Flower), Lee Yoon-hee (Backstreet Rookie), Han Soo-hyun (Nobody Knows), Choi Kyu-jin (Class of Lies), Nam Mi-jung (Bull), and Kim Shi-eun (Special Labor Inspector Jo).
I’m excited for United Effort to Accomplish One Thing because it almost sounds like Knives Out with a dark Liar Game-type twist.
MBC Wednesday-Thursday drama United Effort to Accomplish One Thing, written by Choi Kyung and directed by Jin Chang-kyu, will begin airing on July 22.
