Ryu Hwa-young’s Appearance on My Father is Strange (2017)


The next Hwa-young drama that we’re going to talk about is one that was made and aired in 2017. This drama is called “My Father is Strange”, and was from the cable channel KBS. It has a lot of episodes, and was the highest-rated drama compared to other dramas that aired in the same time.

This drama was about an idol named Ahn Joong-hee, who suddenly appears in front of the Byun family’s house claiming that he is one of the father’s children. Later on, Ahn Joong-hee moved into that house and lived with the family. A lot of things happened surrounding Ahn Joong-hee and Byun family members.


This is actually a family drama that has various characters with various type of plots, and the development is really interesting to watch. Ryu Hwa-young played as Byun Ra-young, one of the daughters of the Byun family.


Ra-young is also the youngest member in Byun family, making her spoiled and childish sometimes. But she always dressed prettily and lived like a typical teenager. She is addicted to her phone and always cares about her style. In short, Hwa-young once again played as a young and lovely character on this drama.
