Tall, with a perfect figure and his qualifications as an Ivy League graduate, Kim Yi Han is Seoul’s top male nanny. He is employed by Seo Do Young as a live-in nanny to look after her two young children, Eun Bi and Jung Min.
KIM YI-HAN (Seo Ji-seok)
Is the manny, aka male nanny, which is a word he uses unironically and unabashedly. He is highly sought-after in his native terrain of New York City, because his exceptionally good at his job, and earns a handsome living at it. Initially he gives off the impression of being an insensitive jerk, but we soon see that he is acting in the interest of the child welfare, which sometimes includes purposely making one cry to assess the condition of his health (asthma, in this case).
Yi-han picks up clues with the precision of a CSI detective, is sensitive to signs of a childpsychological troubles, and is skilled in first aid and establishing rapport with even the most troublesome kids. He is a veritable 21st-century Mary Poppins, only he traded the magical umbrella for rock-hard abs.
SEO DO-YOUNG (Choi Jung-yoon)
Is a thirty something single mother raising two kids while juggling her career as a successful one-woman design house. Her little shop caters to the women, mostly posh moms, of her tony Cheongdam-dong neighborhood.
Do-young has a sunny disposition and is a caring mother, but is often scatterbrained from being stretched thin between her work and home. Her ex-husband is not part of the picture, and we can infer that he does not care to be a regular presence in his kids lives. Do-young does the best she can with the help of her older sister and her best friend Hyun-jung, who works in her clothing shop.
Older sister JANICE (Byun Jung-soo)
Is happily, gratefully child-free, satisfied with her successful career as a former supermodel turned modeling agency CEO. She got a pretty high opinion of herself (her trademark phrase: You know who I am? I am JANICE!) and tsk-tsks at her sister juggling act, saying she shoulda fobbed off the kids on the ex. Still, she is a good aunt who cares for her niece and nephew.
Janice is a tough agency president with a hot temper, demanding the best from her models, which usually means nitpicking the state of their six-packs and the quality of their runway walks. Her latest project is to land the job of celebrity judge on a Korean version of Top Model, and is in the running to be its Janice Dickinson-like resident bitch. Heck, she is more than halfway there already, with the supermodel background and the name. And the ego. And the borderline crazy.
Six-year-old JUNG-MIN is a sweet, quiet boy who likes to read. He does not talk much in general, but his usual introversion has been getting more pronounced recently.
Older sister EUN-BI is 10, a princess with a decidedly bratty streak. She is Youthful Disdain, Personified; just check out that look of Oh, puh-lease she is shooting our manny. She is borderline snotty, but there are indications that her stubborn pride is a mask for her softer side. She often trailed by Dong-yi, a chubby, happy classmate with a crush on her; their mothers are friends and co-workers.
