TVING's original series "An Ant Is Riding" announced its full-fledged start by confirming the casting of Han Ji Eun and Hong Jong Hyun. The two will also be joined by Jung Moon Sung, Kim Seon Young, and Jang Gwang.

"An Ant Is Riding" is directed by Choi Ji Young and written by Lim Yeon Soo.

It is a story about five "ants" or stock traders jumping into the stock market with various stories and participating in a mysterious stock meeting. It is a human comedy about the rise and fall of stocks, where people realize life, friendship, and love through stocks.

While passionate interest in stocks has been burning hotter than ever in society, "An Ant Is Riding" reflects the current state of affairs, heralding the birth of a drama that empathizes with the times. 

In particular, it is a sign that it will penetrate deeply into the hearts of viewers by dealing with the realistic stock stories of small citizens that unfold in real-time right next to each other, rather than the stock wars in the business world.

First of all, Han Ji Eun takes on the role of Yu Mi Seo, a pro-loser who was once a happy bride-to-be. She experiences failure in stock investment. Han Ji-eun's acting as Yu Mi-seo raises pleasant expectations.

In addition, Jung Mun Sung plays the role of Kang San, who doesn't have a full-time job, while Kim Seon Young is the owner of a famous Jokbal restaurant. Lastly, Jang Gwang takes on the role of Kim Jin Bae, an English teacher who jumped into the stock market after retirement.

These five people with different lives and stories meet at a mysterious stock meeting with the common denominator of stocks and embark on a journey to transform from an ant to a super ant. 

In particular, as it is the first stock drama to try in Korea, the freshness and differentiation are doubled, making "An Ant Is Riding" even more appealing. 

TVING's original "An Ant Is Riding" is scheduled to be released on TV in the second half of 2022.
