Netflix Drops Official Trailer For Newest Kdrama Little Women

Netflix just dropped its official trailer for the newest kdrama entitled Little Women starring Kim Go Eun, Nam Ji Hyun, and Park Ji Hu.

Also, the upcoming drama will have suspense and thriller aspects to its story rather than focusing on drama and romance.

Local network TVN released the teaser poster last week in its official Instagram account. The three sisters are illustrated walking their path to a predetermined destination. The caption translates:

“Where are Kim Go-eun, Nam Ji-hyun, and Park Ji-hoo heading to?”

The uploaded trailer features mostly lines and point of view of Oh In Joo, Kim Go Eun’s character. She appears as the eldest sister to comes across a huge sum of money. Of which, Nam Ji Hyun’s character, Oh In Kyung, calls stolen money. Park Ji Hu is Oh In Hye, the youngest of the three sisters who is innately talented in art. The three sisters have a strong bond as they face hardships of poverty together. Eventually, they are thrown in the middle of a situation involving the richest family of the country.

“The mysterious 70 billion won (approximately $53.5 million dollars) that appeared in front of their eyes. Will they keep it, or will they return it?”

“Why do you keep saying it’s stolen money? It’s money that I received.”

“Mom, Dad, In Hye, and you. I’ll make it so you guys can live without having to worry about money.”

Jeong Seo-kyung updates the conflicts that the sisters face from the time of the original novel.

While circumstances may differ, certain attributes of the sisters still remain.  Jo’s writing skills has now become In Kyung’s journalism profession. It’s possible that they will talk about a sister they have recently lost to a fever much like the classic story’s Beth. Meg’s story of marrying and starting a life of her own is now In Joo’s chancing upon a bag of money that changes opportunities for her and her family. Amy’s artistic prowess is still with In Hye as she tries to enter Art School.
