A Heartwarming and Comedic Journey of Mother-Daughter Bonds in “Not Others”
ENA’s highly anticipated drama, “Not Others” (previously known as “Strangers”), based on the popular webtoon of the same name, has unveiled a second teaser, an intriguing new poster, and additional stills, generating significant excitement among fans. The upcoming series promises to strike a perfect balance between heartwarming moments and comedic charm.
In the drama, the talented Jeon Hye-jin (known for her role in “Uncle”) takes on the lead role of Eun-mi, a single mother who became pregnant during her high school years. With an independent spirit, Eun-mi has raised her daughter all by herself, and she now works as a spirited and youthful physiotherapist. The affectionate bond between Eun-mi and her daughter is immediately evident, as Jin-hee (played by Sooyoung) describes her mother’s youthful behavior as endearing rather than immature. Eun-mi, in turn, proudly declares Jin-hee to be a truly filial daughter. While Eun-mi worries about her daughter feeling lonely, she attempts to play matchmaker, while Jin-hee prefers to stay by her mother’s side, lending a hand with household chores.
However, their relationship is not without its challenges, as living under the same roof inevitably leads to occasional clashes. Fed up with her mother’s nagging, Jin-hee finds herself shouting at Eun-mi, only to be met with a spirited retort from her young-at-heart mother. The teaser concludes with both women slamming their bedroom doors shut and declaring that they would rather be strangers, highlighting the complexities of their bond.
Fans of “The Glory” will be delighted to know that “Not Others” will take over the timeslot of “Lies Hidden in My Garden,” and the talented Park Sung-hoon will join the cast as police chief Jae-won. Jae-won finds himself shaken by Jin-hee in more ways than one. Additionally, Ahn Jae-wook (known for his role in “The Empire”) completes the main cast as Jin-hong, an ENT specialist who mysteriously enters Eun-mi’s life. This hints at a potential romantic storyline for the devoted mother. The prospect of mother and daughter meddling in each other’s love lives promises to be immensely entertaining.
Directed by PD Lee Min-woo (“Cinderella and the Four Knights”) and with scripts penned by Min Sun-ae, “Not Others” is set to premiere on July 17, much to the anticipation of fans eagerly awaiting this heartwarming and comedic drama.
