As this will be the first time adapted into a K-Drama, this series will take a modern setting on the beloved novel.
The plot of the Korean drama Little Women deviates from the work of Louisa May Alcott but the characters are patterned after the original March sisters. Like the sisters from the novel, the siblings in this version face poverty, especially in their childhood.
The eldest, Oh In Ju (played by Kim Go Eun), takes after Meg March, who yearns for an ordinary but happy home life.
Meanwhile, Oh In Kyung's middle sister (played by Nam Ji Hyun) is reminiscent of Jo March. She is also into journalism and has strong beliefs.
The youngest sister, Oh In Hye (played by Park Ji Hu), has the characteristics of Amy and Beth March. Similar to Amy, she is an aspiring artist but also has Beth's gentle soul. She is also seen in the trailer receiving medical treatment, which follows Beth's trajectory in the 1868 novel.
The Korean drama Little Women may have its own Laurie, a close acquaintance of the March brothers. In this iteration, the sibling's friend is Choi Do Il (played by Wi Ha Joon) who graduated from a prestigious university.
