tvN Asia 24-hour express drama — My Mister — an upcoming series that illustrates the burden of urban lives, will premiere exclusively on tvN Asia in Singapore and Malaysia on 22 March (Thursday) at 21:45. The drama centres on the encounter and changing relationship between a quiet man, Park Dong-hoon (Lee Sun-gyun) in his 40s and Lee Ji-an (IU), a cold lady in her 20s.
As the only hope to his aging mother among his siblings, the taciturn middle-aged Park Dong-hoon leads a seemingly steady life working as a department head in a construction company, but his wife is covertly having an affair with his colleague. Dong-hoon’s brothers live a harsher life: his elder brother Sang-hoon (Park Ho-san) lives with their mother after a business failure and separation with his wife; his younger brother Gi-hoon (Song Sae-byeok) hasn’t managed to make a second film since his award-winning debut. Though facing various obstacles in life, the brothers manage to stay optimistic and unite as a supportive family.
The drama also follows Lee Ji-an, a contract worker in Park Dong-hoon’s company. Constantly threatened and tortured by her debt collector Lee Gwang-il (Chang Ki-Yong), she works day and night attempting to repay her heavy debts. On top of that, Ji-an has to sneak her ill grandmother out of the sanatorium due to expensive fee. Without any support, she lives a lonely and dark life.
Ji-an and Dong-hoon cross paths as he receives a suspicious package of bribery in the company. Perplexed by the out-of-nowhere bribe, the innocent Dong-hoon determines to defend himself against the frame-up to secure his job. Meanwhile, Ji-an accepts the order to spy on Dong-hoon in exchange for money, knowing the company’s internal power struggle…
