tvN’s Little Women struggle with money and truth
After focusing mostly on our sister trio, we finally get a look at our supporting cast in the latest promos for tvN’s Little Women.
The mystery drama stars Kim Go-eun (Yumi’s Cells 2), Nam Ji-hyun (The Witch’s Diner), and Park Ji-hoo (All of Us Are Dead) as sisters Oh In-joo, Oh In-kyung, and Oh In-hye respectively. Although their family love is strong, their experiences with poverty have impacted their relationship with money and the sisters are faced with a difficult choice when they suddenly find themselves at odds with a powerful family.
This family in question has Eom Ji-won (Birthcare Center) as art gallery director Won Sang-ah, the daughter of a general, while Eom Ki-joon (Penthouse 3) plays her politician husband, Park Jae-sang. The two have a daughter named Park Hyo-rin – played by Jeon Chae-eun (If You Wish Upon Me) – who will become the link to our story’s three sisters.
Also in supporting roles, Wie Ha-joon (Bad and Crazy) plays consultant Choi Do-il, who ends up working together with oldest sister In-joo. Second sister In-kyung, on the other hand, has childhood friend Kang Hoon (The Red Sleeve Cuff) close by her side.
The newest teaser begins with the eldest sister In-joo meeting with Do-il and Oh Jung-se (Uncle), who explain that they’re looking for 70 billion won as well as the slush fund ledger. A shocked In-joo asks, “How can you not know that 70 billion has gone missing?” Middle sister In-kyung wisely points out, “If that’s true, it’s not the money that’s the problem. People are capable of lying, but money doesn’t lie.” In-kyung then marches into Politician Park’s press conference, where she reveals evidence that she found to the crowds.
In the intermittent text screens, we read: “A missing 70 billion. The game changes the moment the money is found.” As the sequence continues, we see Park walking out past his daughter, while art gallery director Won rages inside. In voiceover, Won muses, “How far can a person climb up from the very bottom?” We then come to a close on In-joo finding the missing bag of money and the text screens leave us with the drama’s tagline: “The Little Women who wanted to live like everybody else.”
Directed by PD Kim Hee-won (Vincenzo) with scripts penned by Jung Seo-kyung (Mother), tvN’s Little Women premieres next week on September 3 in the weekend slot.
