3 Important Notes on “Little Women” New Drama
1. An Epic Story Focuses on Three Sisters
First and foremost, what makes “Little Women” different from other projects is that this drama will focus on an epic story of three sisters. These three sisters may not come from a wealthy family, but they are incredibly close to each other. Later on, they will be the ones leading the whole storyline against the powerful family in Korea.

Now, if they all agree on accepting the roles, Kim Go Eun will play the eldest sister, Nam Ji Hyun as the middle sister, and Wi Ha Joon will enter as the main character.
2. Storyline by Writer Jung Seo Kyung of “Mother” and “The Truth Beneath”
Secondly, the plot and storyline of “Little Women” is a masterpiece by writer Jung Seo Kyung who had previously written “The Truth Beneath”, “The Handmaiden,” and “Mother”.
So, will it be another thriller psychological mystery drama? Or will it follow the original storyline of “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott? Let us wait for further updates.
3. Directed by Kim Hee Won of “Vincenzo” and “The Crowned Clown”
Finally, “Little Women” fell into the magnificent hands of director Kim Hee Won who had turned “Vincenzo” and “The Crowned Clown” into renowned masterpieces! As we all know, “Vincenzo” has just won the “Excellent Korean Drama” honor at the 16th Seoul International Drama Awards. And big part of it was thanks to Kim Hee Won PD.
Most importantly, if the storyline indeed focuses on the struggle of three sisters, it will be nice to have a talented female director to emphasize and get the feel more on women’s struggles. Go, girl power!
