JTBC has shared a new sneak peek of its upcoming drama “Cleaning Up”!
A remake of the British television series of the same name, “Cleaning Up” will tell the story of three cleaners at a securities firm that attempt to forge a new destiny for themselves after accidentally overhearing some key information about insider trading.
In what marks her first drama role since starring in the hit series “SKY Castle,” Yum Jung Ah will be playing Eo Yong Mi, the hardworking mother of two young daughters, who bears a huge sense of responsibility as her family’s breadwinner.
Jun So Min will be starring as Eo Yong Mi’s younger co-worker Ahn In Kyung, who is working towards her dream of saving up enough money to open her own moving café with a food truck, and Kim Jae Hwa will play Meng Soo Ja, a resourceful and deceptively charming cleaner who can befriend anyone who might be of use to her.
The newly released teaser begins with Eo Yong Mi describing her job as a cleaner. “We’re invisible people,” she says. “People who are in the same place [as others], but who don’t exist to them. But they say that can become a weapon for us. Because when we’re wearing this uniform, the men’s bathroom isn’t the only [off-limits] place we can enter.”
As the women start to take advantage of their ability to go anywhere in the firm without attracting suspicion, Eo Yong Mi continues, “So I’m thinking about trying to use that weapon. No one suspects the cleaners.”
Eo Yong Mi goes on to explain insider trading to Ahn In Kyung, saying, “They know that the [stock price] will rise, so they buy that company’s stock, then sell it when the price goes up.” Sure enough, the trio start raking in the dough, and Meng Soo Ja declares, “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
“Cleaning Up” will premiere on June 4 at 10:30 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out the new teaser for the drama below!
