Synopsis

Despite a marked individuality of each of them, the members of
the family resemble each other in that they are all good-natured.
This drama is a story about a good-natured family whose members
endure hardships, love each other, and live a virtuous
life…

These days, many parents seek divorce and abandon their
children carelessly. But here is a woman who manages to maintain
her married life with difficulty raising an autistic son alone,
whom his own father has given up.

“Precious Family” is a woman’s story that awakens us to how
precious and important the home is and what is the meaning of the
married life.

The drama focuses specifically on the reality in which the
father may choose to take responsibility for his son, but the
mother has no choice but to fulfill her duty as a parent.

Cast

Kim Hee-ae

Ahn Seong-sil, 35, femaleSeong-sil is the oldest daughter of
the family. When in high school, she was already chosen as the
future bride by a son of a businessman who owned a taxi company
and a movie house. She gave up her plan to go to college and
married him. She gave birth to a girl when she was 21. The girl
is now 15. Another child is a 12-year-old son who is autistic.
Unable to accept his autistic son, her husband has left him to
his wife’s care. As time goes by, conflict has developed between
them and affection for each other has naturally abated. In a
situation where she can’t afford to take her eye off her son even
a moment, her husband nearly tortures her for absurd reasons
whenever he gets drunk. Despite her tremendous amount of
patience, she feels she has almost reached a limit. Although she
was not so extrovert before, she has grown more reticent as she
has gradually become exhausted in life… Her daughter has
happened to read a text message on her father’s cell phone, and
Seong-sil comes to know that her husband has another woman in his
life. Except her, nobody in the family knows about the change in
her husband.

Chang Hyun-sung

Ahn Ji-hwan, 32, maleJi-hwan is the second child of the
family. He commutes to a bank in a new town nearby. Like his
father, he is a reticent man. If left alone with his father, he
exchanges only a few words with his father all day long. He goes
steady with a girl and is old enough to marry, but has come up
against a snag because of disparity of wealth between the two
families. Both of them are indecisive due to his concern about
his future mother-in-law who lives alone and her worries about
her future in-laws.

Lee Dong-wook

Ahn Jeong-hwan, 28, maleJeong-hwan is the third child of the
family. Though it has been over a year since he finished his
military service, he has failed to find a job. He is carefree,
cheerful and active, and looks on the bright side of everything.
While trying to find a decent job, he doesn’t mind working as an
odd-job man at the construction sites or as a waiter at
nightclubs. Equipped with a thorough sense of economic values, he
is stingy with everything to the extent that he would never spend
a single penny unless he faces a dead end. At every opportunity,
he tries to squeeze money out of his brother or even older and
younger sisters. His goal is to make 500 million won within five
years. Since very young, he has already learned some techniques
of Karate, Taekwondo and Judo, and even tried his hand at boxing.
As a result, he has never been beaten in fights, but gotten into
trouble sometimes. He boasts of himself as well-built and is
still preoccupied with building his body. He doesn’t hesitate to
remove anything that stands in his way. Sometimes, he manages to
solve problems without making his presence in the trouble
scenes.

Lee Yu-ri

Ahn Seong-mi, 24, femaleSeong-mi is the fourth and youngest
child in the family. She works at the office of public relations
at a foods company. She plays the baby to the family members, but
shows her responsibility and competence at work. She appears nice
and girlish to men, but turns nearly into a tough to her close
friends or acquaintances. She, therefore, professes herself to be
a girl of multiple personality. She shares a one-room studio
apartment with her co-worker in Seoul and comes home on weekends.
She becomes irritated because she has to leave the apartment so
often for her roommate to invite her boyfriend. She doesn’t deny
the life values her father has taught, neither does she want to
live a boring life like her mother.
