Jang Nara, Jang Hyuk, Chae Jung An, And More Exceed Expectations At Script Reading For tvN’s Upcoming Comedy Spy Drama


Jang Nara, Jang Hyuk, Chae Jung An, And More Exceed Expectations At Script Reading For tvN’s Upcoming Comedy Spy Drama


tvN has teased Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara’s fourth project together with photos from their recent script reading!


Upcoming tvN drama “Family” (literal title) is a comedy spy drama about a National Intelligence Service (NIS) black agent husband who is undercover as an ordinary office worker and a sweet but fierce wife who dreams of having a perfect family. The drama is helmed by executive producer Jang Jung Do, whose hit works include “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim,” “The Crowned Clown,” “Our Blues,” “Alchemy of Souls,” and more. “Family” also marks the fourth project led by Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara, as well as their first collaboration in nine years.


Amidst anticipation for the new drama, “Family” has unveiled photos from the cast’s first script reading. Present alongside writer Jung Yoo Sun and directors Jang Jung Do and Lee Jung Mook were actors Jang Hyuk, Jang Nara, Chae Jung An, Lee Soon Jae, Kim Kang Min, Yoon Sang Jung, Gabee, Shin Soo Ah, and more.


To start off the reading, Jang Jung Do shared, “I’m thankful that such good actors have joined the script I discussed for a long time with the writer. I will create a set where we can always meet while smiling.” Director Lee Jung Mook added, “A lot of people say that projects take after its title. I will work hard so we can have a harmonious family-like atmosphere up until the end.”


As expected from the main pair, Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara kicked off the reading by showcasing their impeccable chemistry with perfect banter. Jang Hyuk will be starring as Kwon Do Hoon, Kang Yu Ra’s husband who is an NIS black agent disguised as a trading company employee. Despite being a charismatic and slightly intimidating agent, Kwon Do Hoon is a loving and romantic husband at home.


Jang Nara will be playing Kang Yu Ra, a housekeeping expert and Kwon Do Hoon’s wife. While she’s a dedicated wife who works to protect the perfect family of her dreams, she hides a secret behind her lovable nature. The two filled the reading room with laughter and cheers as they impressed with their comedic, realistic, and passionate acting.




Chae Jung An will transform into professional NIS operator Oh Chun Ryun, who is also Kwon Do Hoon’s marksman. Having divorced three times, she takes it upon herself to help Kwon Do Hoon keep his family until the end, and in turn develops an interesting relationship with Kang Yu Ra.





Lee Soon Jae takes on the role of Kwon Woong Soo, Kwon Do Hoon’s friendly and loving father. The actor commented, “This is a character I haven’t done yet. I did my best to showcase myself.”


Kim Kang Min, Yoon Sang Jung, and Shin Soo Ah will also help bring the Kwon family to life with their realistic portrayal of family dynamics as Kwon Ji Hoon, Lee Mi Rim, and Kwon Min Seo respectively. Also joining the cast is Gabee of dance crew La Chica, who will portray Ma Young Ji.





The producers of “Family” commented, “Right from the first reading, the teamwork and synergy of Jang Hyuk, Jang Nara, and the cast members exceeded expectations. The actors and staff will all prepare diligently and greet viewers with a drama that we can fall into, to laugh and relate with.”


tvN’s upcoming drama “Family” is slated to premiere this April.

Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara become Family in tvN’s new comedy


The first script reading stills have dropped for tvN’s new comedy series Family, featuring the main cast led by the iconic re-pairing of Jang Hyuk (Red Heart) and Jang Nara (Sell Your Haunted House).

As the center of our story, the two will be playing the happily married couple Kwon Do-hoon (Jang Hyuk) and Kang Yura (Jang Nara), who have a loving daughter played by Shin Soo-ah.


Although everyone thinks that Do-hoon is a run-of-the-mill corporate employee, he actually works for the government as a secret black ops agent, making it difficult to juggle between his work and home. Still, Yura runs their household like a tight ship and is determined to ensure that they remain a picture perfect family, even if it means concealing secrets of her own.


At work, Do-hoon’s boss is Chae Jung-ahn (King of Pigs) in the role of Oh Chun-ryeon. She enjoys a successful career and the freedom of being single, but she also struggles with loneliness, in addition to the aftermath of her three divorces. Her experiences lead Chun-ryeon to feel sympathetic for our hero and she tries her best to help Do-hoon protect his family.

In supporting roles, the eminent Lee Soon-jae (Behind Every Star) will be playing Do-hoon’s father, while Kim Kang-min’s (The Golden Spoon) character will be Do-hoon’s carefree younger brother, who is married to Yoon Sang-jung (Shooting Stars).


On the production side, scripts were penned by Jung Yoo-sun (That Man, Oh Soo) with directing helmed by PD Jang Jung-do and PD Lee Jung-mok. Notably, this will be Jang Jung-do’s first time as a main PD, but he has a long history of working as an executive producer with recent projects including Alchemy of Souls and Island.
