JTBC’s upcoming drama My Liberation Diary has confirmed its main cast with Lee Min-ki (Oh! Master), Kim Ji-won (Lovestruck in the City), Sohn Seok-gu (Designated Survivor: 60 Days), and Lee El (When the Devil Calls Your Name) in the lead roles. The story is a tale of three siblings who want to escape their suffocating lives and a mysterious stranger.
Lee Min-ki will be playing the role of the second-oldest sibling, Yeom Chang-hee. He’s living life without any ambitions or dreams and is often ignored by the rest of his family. He had once hoped to break free from the sidelines, but his desire for a more exciting life didn’t quite pan out. He speaks in an uncomplicated manner and everything that he states is oddly logical, so no matter what he says it’s hard to get mad at him.
Kim Ji-won will take on the role of Yeom Mi-jung, the youngest child in the family who wants to be liberated from her tedious, mundane life. Being extremely introverted and timid, she has lived her entire life feeling completely alone and unfulfilled. She has a friendly smile which can suddenly turn cold.
Sohn Seok-gu will play the mysterious, charming Mr. Gu who appears in their small village, a place that no one ever comes to. Having lost his way in life and feeling empty, he exudes a strong smell of misfortune and is constantly drunk. But one day, Yeom Mi-jung suddenly approaches him.
Lastly, Lee El will play Yeom Ki-jung, the eldest child of the family with a fiery personality. Having spent her whole youth working and commuting to Seoul everyday, she is unhappy with her life and is desperate to find love.
The drama will reunite Lee Min-ki and Kim Ji-won who previously appeared in the film Detective K: Secret of the Living Dead and Lee El and Sohn Seok-gu who starred together in the drama Matrimonial Chaos.
Directed by Kim Seok-yoon (Law School, The Light in Your Eyes) and written by Park Hae-young (My Ajusshi, Oh Hae-young Again), My Liberation Diary is set to air in 2022.
