With her realistic acting, Park Ji Young will be playing Soo Ji’s mother who has done everything so that her daughter lives without even a speck of trouble.
The second piece, Looking for a Child, is based on Kim Young Ha’s novel of the same name. It is about the ironic life of a couple who finds their lost child in 11 years. The work will examine human lives as it portrays an unexpected moment when the father faces his returned child.

Cho Sung Min, the couple’s child who returns in 11 years, will be performed by the child actor Oh Ja Hoon. The series will illustrate how an ordinary, cheerful boy faces the biggest incident in his life and experiences terrible growing pains in a twisted relationship.
