Cleaning Up will be penned by scriptwriter Choi Kyung Mi who wrote “Return.”
Yum Jung Ah will be playing the role of Eo Yong Mi who is the Bested Investment Securities’ cleaner busy making a living as a cleaner during the weekdays and a housekeeper during the weekends. This is because she is a mother and the head of a household who has to raise her two precious daughters. She makes a crucial decision when she is faced with an opportunity after hearing insider trading information. It will be Yum Jung Ah’s 1st comeback in three years since after her appearance in hit JTBC drama “SKY Castle.”
Jun So Min will be playing the role of Eo Yong Mi’s coworker Ahn In Kyung who is saving up money by cleaning in order to achieve her dream of setting up a moving café with a small food truck. She gets swept up in Yong Mi’s decision, but due to her timid and fearful personality, she often plays a role in putting the breaks on the sudden accelerations in the stock wars.
Kim Jae Hwa will be taking on the role of Meng Soo Ja, a cleaner who also dreams of finding success in life. She is friendly to the extent that it will only take her five minutes to convince a complete stranger to be on her side. However, she only uses her skills when they are necessary for her benefit. Although she is a deceptive character with many faces and even more schemes, she is a figure who cannot be left out of the three ladies’ stock operation.
The production team shared, “Yum Jung Ah, Jun So Min, and Kim Jae Hwa, who raise anticipation for their great performances with just their names, are perfectly immersing into their characters to create a high-quality project. The challenge of the three people aiming to hit the ceiling in terms of stocks and in life will also deliver maximized fun to the small screen. Please show lots of interest.”
“Cleaning Up” will air in the first half of this year via JTBC following the conclusion of “My Liberation Notes.”
