3 sisters struggle against poverty and energy in tvN’s Small Ladies
Blink and you will miss it! The new trailer for tvN’s Small Ladies basically pays homage to the Louisa May possibly Alcott novel, as we meet the plight of the youngest of the 3 sisters, played by Park Ji-hoo (All of Us Are Dead). Her two older sisters — played by Kim Go-eun (Yumi’s Cells two) and Nam Ji-hyun (The Witch’s Diner) (who I actually can not wait to see as co-heroines!) — have a straightforward but sweet birthday celebration for their maknae. They ask incredulously why she’s not going on the field trip, and she says she wouldn’t be in a position to anyway. In the subsequent reduce our maknae is in an art class, seeking frustrated more than her canvas (I see you, Amy March).
The drama tends to make it apparent that the family members is impoverished, and right after we see our youngest sister struggle beneath the weight of it, we see Nam Ji-hyun’s character at operate. Right here, a person asks pointedly if she grew up poor — it shows in her point of view and behavior. Subsequent we see cuts of our sisters living their challenging life, asking yourself what it would be like to have funds, and dreaming of living collectively in a good apartment with windows.
We then reduce to some much more familiar scenes from the drama, exactly where Kim Go-eun’s character finds 70 billion won… and then finds herself in the major leagues, up against a strong family members led by Eom Ji-won (Birthcare Center) and her politician husband Eom Ki-joon (Penthouse three). The text screens and fast cuts give a sharp contrast to the humble kitchen scenes we saw at the starting of the trailer. We then see Kim Go-eun’s character meeting a lot of action, and bargaining with consultant Choi Do-il, who is played by Wie Ha-joon (Negative and Crazy).
The setup is nothing at all new, but give me an underdog story about siblings, and I’m in! The drama’s tone appears sharp and rapidly-paced, and even though I was initially hoping for a slice-of-life drama, this thrilling mystery-thriller is also seeking fairly fine. As are Wie Ha-joon and Kang Hoon (The Red Sleeve Cuff). Simply because 3 fierce sisters want partners in crime – and appreciate interests.
Directed by PD Kim Hee-won (Vincenzo) and written by Jung Seo-kyung (Mother), tvN’s Small Ladies premieres this weekend on September three.
