Kim Ji Won And Lee Min Ki, Lee El And Son Seok Gu Confirmed To Reunite In New Drama
JTBC’s upcoming drama “Will This Be My Liberation” (literal translation) has confirmed its starring cast!
“Will This Be My Liberation” is a new drama that will tell the story of three siblings who want to escape their stifling lives and a mysterious outsider who comes to their town.
Kim Ji Won will be playing the role of Yum Min Jung, who is the youngest child in her family. A born introvert, the timid Yum Min Jung has always gone through life feeling completely alone. Unable to take it anymore, Yum Min Jung eventually attempts to make a change in order to “liberate” herself from her dreary, monochrome life.
Meanwhile, Lee Min Ki will be starring as Yum Chang Hee, Yum Min Jung’s older brother and the middle child of their family. Although he initially hoped to move to the city and get a taste of a more exciting world, life didn’t go according to his plans. Aimless, dreamless, and lacking any particular ambition, Yum Chang Hee might be immature, but everything he says is always surprisingly logical.
Lee El will play Yum Ki Jung, the fiery eldest child of the family, who is only well-behaved on the day she receives her paycheck. Yum Ki Jung feels that she wasted her entire youth commuting back and forth to Seoul for her job, and she is desperate to find love.
Finally, Son Seok Gu will play the role of Mr. Gu, the charming and mysterious outsider who suddenly arrives in town. No one knows who he is, and his arrival is even more mystifying because their town is considered so boring that “while people may leave, no one ever moves in.” Mr. Gu, who seems as though he’s been through his fair share of misfortune, is drunk 365 days a year and has lost his way in life—until one day, Yum Min Jung approaches him.
Notably, Kim Ji Won and Lee Min Ki previously starred together in the 2018 film “Detective K: Secret of the Living Dead,” while Son Seok Gu and Lee El played a married couple in the 2018 drama “Matrimonial Chaos.”
The producers of “Will This Be My Liberation” commented, “Viewers will be able to empathize strongly with the story of these characters who search for a new path in order to liberate themselves from their confined lives. Please also look forward to the chemistry between the actors, who will fill their characters with their own unique charms.”
“Will This Be My Liberation” will premiere in 2022.
