While there are plenty of K-dramas to watch this August, there is a highly anticipated drama for September. Kim Go-eun, Nam Ji-hyun, and Park Ji-hu star in a riveting thriller K-drama about three sisters in Little Women. The story revolves around poverty, a mysterious crime, and more. Here is everything about the drama, like the main cast and release date.
Three sisters who grew up poor get tangled in an incident in ‘Little Women’
According to Soompi, tvN released the first official poster for Little Women. Fans see the dynamic between the three sisters as they are in for the fight of their lives. The K-drama centers on the sisters who grew up in poverty. They find themselves in bizarre circumstances and against the wealthy elite when they find a bag of money.
Yumi’s Cells actor Kim Go-eun stars as the oldest sister, Oh In-joo. She dreams of living a good life with her family and being well off. But her desires crumble when an incident turns her life upside down. Nam Ji-hyun stars in the Little Women K-drama as the middle sister, Oh In-kyung.
She is a reporter that is not swayed by money or power. But things get complicated when a case from her rookie years has her investigating the truth. Playing the role of the youngest sister, Oh In-hye, is actor Park Ji-hu. She has lived a decent life thanks to her older sisters’ love and dedication. While unable to afford high-end art supplies, she enters an art high school based on her talent.
The production team explains its dark and mysterious storyline, “As soon as the three sisters in the lowest and darkest place try to enter the highest and brightest place, the solid world system begins to shake.” The drama is a modern adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel of the same name.
