The satirical plot takes hold of us when we see “Sky Castle“, which has a very good cast and whose name not only derives from the impressive apartments where the characters live but also makes a wink to the three main universities of Korea, which are known as the SKY universities.
This satirical comedy-drama will depict the sadness and jealousy of four ambitious rich housewives and is quite well accepted by the Korean audience and whose chapters are sometimes a bit absurd but manage to develop the story in an entertaining and skillful way.
A curious element is that the young and novice actors of the “SKY Castle” have been stealing the show.
