The South Korean adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel Little Women is set to premiere on Netflix this Saturday.
It is directed by Kim Hee-Won who also directed the hit Netflix series Vincenzo. The story is set in modern-day Seoul and tells the journey of three sisters who go up against a corrupt corporation.
“Once again, I’m working with screenwriter Chung Seo-Kyung of The Handmaiden and Decision To Leave. We reimagined the original novel by posing the question, what if the sisters were Korean?” shared Hee-Won.
The director shared that the twelve episodes are packed with plot twists and a strong storyline.
Actresses Kim Go-Eun of Goblin and The King: Eternal Monarch, Nam Ji-Hyun of 100 Days My Prince, and Park Ji-Hu of All Of Us Are Dead play the three sisters. Wi Ha-Joon of Squid Game also plays a supporting male role.
Hee-Won commended the ensemble cast for their passion and commitment to the show. She also expressed her gratitude for production designer Ryu Seong-Hee “perfect” set design.
The series will release two episodes per week every Saturday and Sunday, and is expected to conclude on October 9.
