Dream Cast: Little Women K-drama Adaptation
My third K-drama dream cast is for the beloved Little Women classic. This darling story would be awesome as a K-drama. I think it would be best for the story to be modernized.
It could be a contemporary story about four daughters growing up, struggling to make a living, while their Dad is overseas serving in a medical charity. They become friends with the neighbor boy, a lonely 3rd generation chaebol. The girls experience love, heartbreak and growing pains as they mature into little women.
kim ji won - jo march
han ye ri - meg march
park so dam - beth march
lee sung kyung - amy march
bae jong ok - marmee
park hyung shik - laurie
kim ji han - mr. brooks
lee sun gyun - professor bhaer
Ji-Won (Descendants of the Sun, Fight My Way) would be perfect as the spunky relatable Jo while Ye-Ri (Six Flying Dragons, Age of Youth) would be the more restrained, bossy eldest sister Meg. So-Dam (Cinderella and the Four Knights) would bring on the tears as an utterly lovable sweet Beth and Sung-Kyung (Cheese in the Trap, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo) would kill it as Amy, balancing both her youthful brattiness and eventual elegance and refinement.
Bae Jong-Ok (Spy) would be wonderful as the wise and ever loving Marmee. Park Hyung-Shik would kill the role of youthful, boyish Laurie. Ji-Han would be perfect as a very reserved but good man, Mr. Brooke. And Sun-Gyun would melt our hearts with his voice playing Professor Bhaer!
