It will broadcast twice a week in primetime an be known as The Suspicious Housekeeper.
Korean actress Choi Ji-Woo will play the titular Mita character, who is cold and detached housekeeper suffering from the trauma of losing her father, husband and child that eventually makes an emotional connection with the child of the family she works for.
“We at NTV are honored that SBS is remaking I’m Mita, Your Housekeeper, our award-winning drama whose last episode broke records with a 40% viewer rating. It is our hope that the South Korean remake enjoys the same success as our original drama,” said NTV in a statement.
