Netflix confirms lineup for newest original series Model Family
Jung Woo, Yoon Jin-seo, Park Ji-yeon, Park Hee-soon
Upcoming Netflix series Model Family has announced its final casting lineup. Jung Woo (Mad for Each Other) plays the lead role of Dong-ha, an ordinary breadwinner who is on the brink of bankruptcy and divorce. One day, he discovers an expensive car and becomes entangled with the second-in-command of a drug ring (à la Breaking Bad).
Park Hee-soon (My Name, Beautiful World) plays Gwang-cheol, the ruthless second-in-command who coerces Dong-ha to become further involved with his drug operations. In contrast to Dong-ha’s character as the household head who lives for his family, Park Hee-soon’s character seems cold-blooded and only interested in protecting his money.
Yoon Jin-seo (Jackpot) plays Jung Woo’s wife, Eun-joo, who has a hidden secret. Park Ji-yeon (Hospital Playlist 2) plays Joo-hyun, a police investigator in the vice and drugs department, who is tasked with pursuing leads on Dong-ha and Gwang-cheol.
Suits director Kim Jin-woo is attached to this project and Production H (School 2017) will be producing. Model Family will air on Netflix in 2022.
