On April 22, JTBC’s new weekend drama “The Atypical Family” shared some behind-the-scenes photos, raising anticipation for the upcoming story!

“The Atypical Family” tells the story of a supernatural family who lost their powers after suffering from very realistic problems. The drama is directed by Cho Hyun Tak of “SKY Castle” and penned by Joo Hwa Mi of “Marriage, Not Dating” and Kang Eun Kyung of “Dr. Romantic.”

In the newly released photos, Jang Ki Yong perfectly embodies Bok Gwi Joo, a depressed time traveler trapped in past happiness as he grapples with current despair. Jang Ki Yong commented on his character, saying, “Bok Gwi Joo may seem lethargic and indifferent to everything, but he’s the one who strives harder than anyone to retrieve happiness.” He added, “It was difficult to portray contrasting emotions—from the current miserable state to past happiness—at the same time. I tried to convey even the smallest details beyond his external vibes.”


A mysterious intruder, Do Da Hae (Chun Woo Hee), who brings depressed Bok Gwi Joo out to the world, intrigues viewers as her identity gradually unfolds. The actress stated, “Do Da Hae is a character who hides behind layers of persona.” She further expressed affection for the character, saying, “If you follow along Do Da Hae’s perception and mind, you will uncover her multidimensional charms.” As Chun Woo Hee is seen reading through her script even during breaks, anticipation is high as to what changes Do Da Hae will bring to the supernatural family.

The released photos also capture Go Doo Shim and Oh Man Seok rehearsing their scenes. Go Doo Shim portrays Bok Man Heum, a key figure in the Bok family who lost her ability of foresight after struggling with insomnia, while Oh Man Seok plays Bok Man Heum’s husband, Eom Soon Gu, who is the only member of the family without supernatural power. In the behind-the-scenes still image, both burst into laughter as Oh Man Seok piggybacks Go Doo Shim, offering a glimpse of a pleasant atmosphere on the set.

The photos also depict the filming scenes of Claudia Kim as Bok Dong Hee, who lost her flying ability after gaining weight. Claudia Kim underwent special makeup to fully embody the character, which she felt ambitious about due to the rare opportunity to portray such a character. Her visual transformation already generated buzz online upon the release of the character poster. Claudia Kim shared, “Since Bok Dong Hee has a distinctive character, I tried to portray her as freely as possible.”

Meanwhile, Park So Yi posed in front of the camera adorably, contrasting with her sensitive and volatile teenage character Bok Yi Na. As a member of the secretive Bok family, viewers are left curious to know the story behind Yi Na.

Director Cho Hyun Tak expressed his trust in the actors, remarking, “All actors gave their best. Jang Ki Yong delivered careful and profound acting in every scene, while Chun Woo Hee portrayed the ever-changing character with sincere and unique charm. Go Doo Shim enhanced the character’s completeness by personally preparing the clothing, and Claudia Kim’s acting transcended physical and emotional limits.”

“The Atypical Family” is set to premiere on May 4.
