Jang Ki Yong and Chun Woo Hee will be starring in the new JTBC drama “Although I Am Not a Hero” (literal title)!

 

“Although I Am Not a Hero” tells the story of a supernatural family who lost their powers. The drama will be directed by Cho Hyun Tak, who helmed the dramas “Maids,” “Mirror of the Witch,” “SKY Castle,” and “Snowdrop,” and will be scripted by writer Joo Hwa Mi, who wrote dramas including “Waiting for Love,” “Marriage, Not Dating,” “Introverted Boss,” and “Meow, the Secret Boy.”

 

Jang Ki Yong will take on the role of Bok Gwi Joo, a man who lost his psychic power due to depression. Bok Gwi Joo’s supernatural ability enables him to return to the past but only to the times he was happy. As he can’t change the past, there is nothing he can do other than dwell on his past happiness, which is also fading away along with his ability. However, Bok Gwi Joo’s unhappy life faces a change when Do Da Hae appears in front of him.

 

Chun Woo Hee will play the role of Do Da Hae, a suspicious woman who appears in front of a family with supernatural powers. While planning to take on a new challenge, Do Da Hae gets entangled with Bok Gwi Joo, who is suffering from depression and has lost his psychic power, and his family, who also lost their abilities due to insomnia, bulimia, and a smartphone addiction, and starts living with the Bok family as if it is fated to be.

 

Jang Ki Yong, who was discharged from the military earlier in February, remarked, “It’s been a long time since I’ve worked on a project, so I’m working on it half with excitement and half with anticipation. I will keep this pleasant excitement until the end and greet viewers with a great project. Please show lots of anticipation and interest.”

 

Chun Woo Hee, who received great love from viewers through various projects, also shared, “‘Although I Am Not a Hero’ is a heartwarming drama about family and happiness. I’m looking forward to what my chemistry will be like with great actors including Jang Ki Yong. I hope we will be happy during filming. Please show lots of interest [for our drama].”

“Although I Am Not a Hero” is set to premiere in 2024.

Although-I-Am-Not-a-Hero.jpeg

 

JTBC’s upcoming fantasy romance drama “Although I Am Not a Hero” (literal title) has unveiled its first poster!

 

Warning: contains mentions of mental disorders and eating disorders.

 

“Although I Am Not a Hero” tells the story of a man from a supernatural family, who lost their extraordinary powers after suffering from very realistic issues, and the peculiar woman he meets by fate. The drama is directed by Cho Hyun Tak of “SKY Castle” and penned by writer Joo Hwa Mi of “Marriage, Not Dating.” Writer Kang Eun Kyung of “Dr. Romantic” also participated in the drama.

 

Jang Ki Yong takes on the role of Bok Gwi Joo. Bok Gwi Joo has a supernatural ability that enables him to return to times in the past, but he loses his power due to depression. Chun Woo Hee will play the role of Do Da Hae, a mysterious woman who appears in front of Bok Gwi Joo’s family.

 

The newly released poster shows the mysterious Do Da Hae taking center stage, standing before Bok Gwi Joo’s family. The Bok family members remain concealed behind curtains, evoking a sense of intrigue regarding the secrets they harbor and the true nature of their extraordinary abilities.

 

Bok Gwi Joo’s somber face and the haunting silhouette cast by his turmoil embody the weight of his depression.

 

Bok Man Heum (Go Doo Shim)’s resolute figure emanates strength and resilience, symbolizing her as the backbone of the Bok household. Bok Man Heum loses her psychic ability to see the future in her dreams due to insomnia.

 

Bok Dong Hee (Claudia Kim), Bok Gwi Joo’s sister who can no longer utilize her ability to fly due to bulimia, stands with a mischievous grin, hinting at the unpredictability of her character.

 

Bok Yi Na (Park So Yi), Bok Gwi Joo’s lovely daughter, radiates an enigmatic calmness with her poker face, her lack of shadow in the poster adding to the intrigue surrounding her yet-to-be-revealed superpower.

 

Lastly, Eom Soon Ku (Oh Man Seok) stands out as the nurturing father figure, diligently looking after the family despite being the only person in the Bok family without any supernatural ability.

Chun Woo Hee Becomes Unexpectedly Intertwined With Jang Ki Yong's Supernatural Family In "The Atypical Family" Posters & Teaser

 

 

“The Atypical Family” tells the story of a supernatural family who lost their powers after suffering from very realistic issues. The drama is directed by Cho Hyun Tak of “SKY Castle” and penned by writer Joo Hwa Mi of “Marriage, Not Dating” and writer Kang Eun Kyung of “Dr. Romantic.” Chun Woo Hee stars as Do Da Hae, a mysterious woman who appears in front of Bok Gwi Joo’s (Jang Ki Yong’s) family.

 

On April 8, “The Atypical Family” unveiled character posters of the Bok family including Bok Gwi Joo (Jang Ki Yong), Bok Man Heum (Go Doo Shim), Bok Dong Hee (Claudia Kim). Bok Yi Na (Park So Yi), and Uhm Soon Goo (Oh Man Seok) as well as Do Da Hae (Chun Woo Hee).

 

Jang Ki Yong plays the “depressed time traveler” Bok Gwi Joo who was once a firefighter with positive energy and a strong sense of calling but is now having trouble getting through each day. Although Bok Gwi Joo has the ability to time slip to when he was happy, he loses both his happiness and special ability due to an unexpected accident. Bok Gwi Joo’s poster captures his sad gaze and his pained shadow, which reflects his current sadness.

Chun Woo Hee takes on the role of the suspicious woman and “polite trespasser” Do Da Hae who suddenly appears in front of Bok Gwi Joo. Unlike Bok Gwi Joo who is shrouded in darkness, Do Da Hae’s poster is bright and vibrant in sharp contrast with Bok Gwi Joo’s poster, raising anticipation for how they will save each other.

The uneasy expression of Bok Man Heum, who is described as a “clairvoyant dreamer who can’t sleep,” foreshadows the changes that will come to her family. Her dignified shadow conveys the weight of her responsibility as the Bok family’s pillar.

Episode 1

 

I think the underlying tone of this drama would be "healing". The whole family lost their special power, and the female lead brought change and helped them overcome their problems.

 

I'm surprised with Jang Ki Yong's role—I did not realise he plays a widower and has a 13 years old daughter (Park So Yi – she's grown so much. No longer the tiny girl that Rowoon could put on his shoulder). She's a reclusive person, who thinks her birth is the beginning of the family's misfortune. Her power is yet unknown.

 

Gu Doo Shim suffers from insomnia, so she lost her power to dream and see the future. Her husband is a normal, powerless man who tirelessly takes care of them like a housekeeper. Claudia Kim plays Ki Yong's Noona who suffers from obesity.

 

At first, I didn't know from the previews how or why female lead Chun Woo Hee would be that "special" person to this family, but after watching this episode, I now understand. Turns out, interestingly, she and her side of the family are swindlers!!! They deliberately targeted this family. She and her "sister" have already infiltrated. Woo Hee is earning brownie points directly from Gu Doo Shim, whereas her sister is the new PT at the gym, run by Jang Ki Yong.


Chun Woo Hee has a trauma, she fears fire (on a stove). Although it may sound like a lie when she told Ki Yong she was saved before by someone who looks like him, but I think there is some truth in it. Ki Yong may have time-travelled and saved her from a fire.

 

Not sure if it is worth watching through and through, but will continue for now.

Such a strange drama with peculiar feeling and the colour theme is muted (actually the cinematographic is quite nice for my eyes, their family lunch in the garden somehow reminded me of Alice Tea Party, the flower colour was popping out with grey surrounding colour at one point). 

 

I also not sure what to make of this drama. It might have potential, but not sure if I can handle all of the strangeness. Maybe will check few more episodes then decide.

Ep 2 is kind of better, the scammer DH seems getting scammed and kept losing money instead. I'm still not sure which portion DH lied and which are not. She mentioned she grew up without her mom, and this also could possibly be true that her family might not also be her biological family? 

 

I think the most interesting part of this drama is the bond between IN, GJ and DH and how they will grew up attached to each other more. I found the sister storyline not too amusing, it reminded me of SMA old drama Oh My Venus where she also use a body fat suit. 

 

Will continue and see how it goes, probably I can do 12 episodes if it continue to be intriguing.

@SilverMoonTea I find episode 2 slow. But I like the development for Yi Na. I'm delighted to see the two child actors, Moon Woo Jin and Kim Soo In (both were in It's Okay Not to be Okay as the child version of Soo Hyun and Seo Ye Ji), and interested to see what it meant of them in the story with Yi Na. I also liked the slight changes between her and Gwi Joo.

The whole presentation is still very strange, and I still find myself unsure with this show. I'm definitely not excited about it.

 

I thought their powers were boring. What is the point of having the ability to travel to the past if you cannot do anything about it? Worse of all, it only made that person depressed, which is Gwi Joo's current state because he was so obsessed with going back that he uncontrollably return even if he didn't intend to and causes him to neglect his present.

 

Same with the sister. What is the point of power of flight as a supermodel? I am interested to know why she became obese.

 

As for little Yi Na, I adore Park So Yi. Hope to see more story about her. But boy, I keep getting a bit sidetrack by the other two kids because they both played the child version of Song Ye Ji and Kim Soo Hyun in It's OK Not To Be OK that I kept thinking they should be the OTP 😅

 

This story is definitely a very different take to the typical superhero stories. I guess I am interested to see how Do Da Hae change the family's powers. 🤔 Even though it seems that she is lying to Gwi Joo, I do believe there was some truth in the lies. The reason Gwi Joo could touch the yellow door and get to the school might be because he was meant to save Da Hae. He just hasn't found the right path to get to her.

 

On the other hand, her lies about Gwi Joo handing her the marriage paper is such a huge gamble. But she probably thought she'd be out of that place before he finds out. Lol.

I'm surprised I'm still watching this drama, considered it's such an eccentric one. It does keep you curious and wonder what comes next. I'm still not happy about JKY's hairstyle, but it suited his character and situation. Sigh.

 

What I like:

  • The interactions between little child actress Park So Yi (Yi Na) and female lead Chun Woo Hee (Da Hae).
  • Our little So Yi now is big enough to have her own love line, and it's with child actor Moon Woo Jin. Kyaaa! 
  • The development between Gwi Joo and Da Hae. How, together with her, will his power become? Can he really go way back to save his sunbae?

What I want to know:

  • Will foster mother become part of the family, or Da Hae will be free of her. They don't entirely seem like bad people, either.
  • Bok Dong Hee - I want to see her go back to pretty Claudia Kim and dump that useless boyfriend!

How about you, @SilverMoonTea? Have you dropped?

  • Party! 1

I somehow also still watching this odd drama. I found I still drawned to it for whatever unknown reason? The wedding scene was quite beautiful and both of them looked very classic. When I have time I found myself will watch this drama 😂 Somehow the drama a bit healing and all of them showed some character progress along the way too.
