Netflix Releases Official Trailer for South Korean Series ‘Little Women’ Coming This Weekend

An official trailer for Netflix’s South Korean adaptation of “Little Women,” set to premiere this weekend, puts a new spin on Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel.

Netflix has already hinted at how the modern adaptation deviates from its source material in a Advance released earlier this month, which features three sisters instead of the four in the novel.

The Oh trio consists of hard-working older brother In-ju (Kim Go-eun), passionate journalist In-kyung (Nam Ji-hyun), and artistically talented younger brother In-hye (Park Ji-hu). The sisters seize the opportunity to escape their life of poverty when In-ju stumbles upon a large sum of money: the missing 70 billion won (approximately $52 million) that is shrouded in controversy. Soon, they find themselves up against one of the wealthiest families in South Korea.

Director Kim Hee-won (“Vincenzo,” “The Crowned Clown”) talked about the upcoming series at a virtual press conference on Monday, “I envisioned the ‘little women’ from the novel coming to South Korea. We started by introducing the problem of money, a harsh reality that many viewers can easily relate to, and the story ends with a big twist that will exceed all expectations.”

The director also thanked the actors for their performances in the drama, saying, “I look for two main principles when casting. First, the actors must be people that viewers really want to see on screen. Two, the actors need to be respected by the staff. It took a long time to find these members, but they are the cast of ‘Little Women’. I just felt honored to work with them.”

Kim Go-eun praised her co-stars who play the other Oh siblings on screen, noting how they all “quickly became close like real sisters.” Park Ji-hu, who plays the younger brother, also compared his relationship with his on-screen characters.

“I received seemingly endless love and attention from my older sisters Kim and Nam. I feel happy, but at the same time I sometimes feel awkward,” Park joked.
