JTBC’s ‘Only One Person’ announced the confirmed appearances of Ahn Eun-jin, Kim Kyung-nam, Kang Ye-won and Park Soo-young (Red Velvet Joy), heralding the birth of a ‘life melodrama’.
JTBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Only One Person’ is a human melodrama in which three women who met at the hospice rush to take only the bad ‘one person’ before they die, and then face the truly precious ‘one person’ in life.
Writer Jung-Min Moon, who proved his excellence in portraying delicate emotions with ‘The Best Divorce’, and Hyun-Jong Oh, who showed sophisticated directing skills that capture romance narratives in sensual images through ‘Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo’, ‘Two Cops’, and Find Me in Your Memory’. It is a work in which the director collaborated.
Here, from Ahn Eun-jin and Kim Kyung-nam, who rose to the top of the small screen with their outstanding acting skills, to strong scene stealer Kang Ye-won and Park Soo-young, who creates new characters every time with a unique sensibility, the casting has been confirmed and a complete lineup of ‘writers’ has been established.
First, Ahn Eun-jin plays Pyo In-suk, a woman who has been sentenced to a life-limiting sentence. In-suk, who works as a lady, is so insensitive to life that even after being sentenced to death, she does not know what emotions to choose. I have never felt that I belonged to this world, so I am waiting for death by making an X on the date like Ogi every day. Ahn Eun-jin, who is in the spotlight as the No. 1 rising star from the drama Strangers From Hell and Diary of a Prosecutor to ‘Hospital Playlist’, predicted a radical transformation by meeting a character she had never seen before.
Kim Kyung-nam plays Min Woo-cheon, a man from the bottom of his life who gets entangled in a murder case with Pyo In-suk. Woo-cheon works his fists at Heungshinso, which is covered with an air purifier company called ‘Narae Clean’. When he was in school, a person was sacrificed by a fist that he swung with patience, and since then, his life has been twisted and he has been living his life just like that without any reason or purpose. Kim Kyung-nam, who has created a character that remains strong in the minds of viewers for each work he appears in such as dramas ‘The King-Eternal Monarch’ and Revolutionary Sisters, is expected to play an unusual role this time as well.
Kang Ye-won, who announced her comeback to the small screen after three years through ‘Only One Person’, took on the role of ‘Kang Se-yeon’, a housewife. She, who has led an ordinary life with reasonable expectations and reasonable responsibility without being noticed by anyone, realizes the rift between the ordinary and the stability she trusted so much after being sentenced to death. With the welcome return of actress Kang Ye-won, who has built up a variety of filmography with character digestibility regardless of genre, she is expected to respond with the best acting to the viewers who have been waiting for her.
Lastly, Park Soo-young takes on the role of ‘Sung Mi-do’, an SNS influencer who was sentenced to death at the peak of her life. Even at the moment when she realizes that life is short, Mido, who cares about the eyes of others so much that she examines the eyes and emotions of doctors, even cries in front of a mirror, takes a picture at her favorite angle, and posts the deadline news on social media. . Park Soo-young, who showed her potential as an actress through the dramas The Liar and His Lover and ‘The Great Seducer’, is expected to play an attractive role with a different character this time.
In-suk and Woo-cheon met at the bottom of their lives, and Seyeon and Mido, who were sentenced to death with In-suk, a miraculous journey where people who had never met in their lives become entangled in an unexpected murder and face the truly precious “one person” in life.
The production team said, “Ahn Eun-jin, Kim Kyung-nam, Kang Ye-won, and Park Soo-young have confirmed their appearances. I am sure that the actors with distinct colors will meet the characters of life and properly explode their acting potential. Please look forward to the true life and true love story that those who stand between life and death will draw.”
Meanwhile, ‘Only One Person’ is scheduled to air on JTBC in the second half of 2021.
