AOA’s Hyejeong joins the cast of new kinship drama ‘My Unfamiliar Family’

Actress and Ace of Angels (AOA) member Shin Hye-jeong is confirmed to cast in tvN’s upcoming series My Unfamiliar Family.

My Unfamiliar Family, also known as (I Don’t Know Much, But) We Are Family, tackles two situations that actually exist in some family relationships—people who do not share blood ties choose to become like family and people who are biologically related drift away and live like strangers. The drama seeks to present these complex connections realistically and show how they may evolve over time.

Shin Hye-jeong (mononymously known as Hyejeong) takes on the character Yoon Seo-young. She will be joining lead actress Han Ye-ri (Nokdu Flower), who is set to play the female protagonist Kim Eun-Hee, and actor Kim Ji-seok (When the Camellia Blooms), who will portray Eun-hee’s college friend of 15 years, Park Chan-hyuk. When Eun-hee faces an unexpected obstacle in her life, she comes to discover who among the people around her are more willing to support her at a time of need, her family or her close friends.

Shin made her acting debut in the rom-com series A Gentleman’s Dignity in 2012. She has been slowly building her career in the small screen by taking part in dramas such as The Blade and Petal (2013), Good Witch (2018), Romance Is a Bonus Book (2019), and Perfume (2019).

Director Kwon Young-il of Search: WWW (2019) is staging the production while screenwriter Kim Eun-jung of Sweet Stranger and Me (2016) is penning the script.

My Unfamiliar Family is set to be a Monday-Tuesday drama that will air at 9:00 p.m. KST, the time slot previously occupied by Mothers, beginning June 1.
