K-dramas are being preempted starting this week left and right on the prime time channels due to World Cup coverage. That means new KBS Wed-Thurs drama Your House Helper won’t premiere this week despite predecessor Suits wrapping up past week, it will get a one week break and arrive on July 4th. The promos and stills are about as far away from fireworks as I can imagine. It looks and feels like a catalog cover shoot for a modern bourgeoisie family brunch in the weekend house out at the countryside home. Male lead Ha Suk Jin plays the butler/housekeeper working for a family of four women described as scattered and a hot mess so he cleans their living space and fixes their emotional issues, so perfectly capturing the present sensibilities, right? At least I don’t expect hair pulling, water cup splashing, and screeching mother-in-laws to pop up in this drama.
