Dramas are adapted from various mangas, and other international tv shows and the latest edition is K-drama Cleaning Up. The jTBC drama Cleaning Up is based on the 2019 British tv show of the same name. The series has had a successful run in the UK, and the K-Drama adaptations hope to repeat the feat. Since the drama is mostly about 3 women, people are curious about the cast of Cleaning Up in Korea. Some of the most talented actresses from the industry have been roped in to play the roles.
The drama revolves around 3 women who work as cleaning staff at a brokerage company. They are working hard to give their kids a better future and fulfill their own desires. They are barely trying to make a living when one day, they overhear some insider information. Having heard this trading secret, the three of them try to make a new destiny for themselves.
It’ll be fun to see how they try to turn their lives around using this secret information and if it is even legal. The plot makes up for a great dark comedy, and the economical disparity is a real issue in South Korea, so it’s going to be eye-opening content too.
The drama will be having 16 episodes and will air on Saturday and Sunday. The drama is going to take up the 10:30 pm slot previously held by the drama My Liberation Notes.

Yum Jung-ah is known for her role in SKY Castle, wherein she plays the role of a rich mother who can go to any lengths for her daughters’ better future.

Actor Na In-woo stars as Lee Doo-young, an engineering Ph.D. student who happens to get entangled with the 3 women. He’s good at dealing with machines and electricity, so he might be of help to the 3 women. His character would surely bring some humor to the plot.
