Upcoming tvN series Birthcare Center has unveiled the first character stills of Uhm Ji-won as she transforms into Oh Hyun-jin.
Birthcare Center is set against a fancy postpartum care facility and will tell the stories of women from all walks of life and their journeys toward motherhood.
The freshly dropped photos introduce Oh Hyun-jin (Uhm Ji-won, The Cursed) during and after her pregnancy. Hyun-jin is a highly successful career woman. As reflected in the images, she knows how to carry herself well while getting the job done. But while she was able to get promoted and nab the title of youngest managing director at work for hustling hard, she quickly realizes that childcare may not be her strong point. She gets even more self-conscious about her inexperience upon finding out that she’s the oldest mother in the care center.
The stills raise curiosity on how Hyun-jin can overcome the anxiety and excitement that comes with childbirth and how her story will play out as she spends time with fellow mothers Jo Eun-jung (Park Ha-sun, Love Affairs in the Afternoon), the establishment’s “Queen Bee,” aptly given for her extensive knowledge about caring for babies, and Lee Roo-da (Choi Ri, My First First Love 2), the CEO of a lingerie mall and the youngest guest at the center, and the center’s director Choi Hye-sook (Jang Hye-jin, Memorials).
Birthcare Center (also known as Postnatal Care Center), directed by Park Soo-won and written by Kim Ji-soo, is scheduled to premiere on November 2 as a Monday-Tuesday drama.
