What We Learned About Living Like The Ridiculously Wealthy From Watching ‘Mine’

This K-Drama takes luxury to a whole other level


Netflix viewers have been talking about The K-drama Mine (Netflix, 2021) directed by Lee Na-jung and starring Lee Bo-young, Kim Seo-hyung, Lee Hyun-wook and Ok Ja Yeon. Only on its eighth episode, it tells the story of two women who try to find their self against difficulties and prejudices related to their position in high society.





If there’s anything this drama’s ratings prove, it’s that the formula of presenting “rich people problems” never gets old.  Aside from the riveting plot told through convincing acting, a compelling script and on-cue humor, Mine is a treat to watch because of its production design.

 The Han family's wealth is evident through their homes and interiors. While their eccentricity is underscored by a preference for the grandiose (the presence of a pet peacock in the garden, the water they drink from antarctic glaciers and the complex oxygenation system of their homes),  the furnishings used reflect the latest trends in luxury.

With only 8 episodes into this show, perhaps most telling about living in luxury is the peculiar fact that the eldest grandson,  Han Soo-hyeok is unable to sleep in his own room.   He is uncomfortable in such luxury, and would rather sleep in the maid’s quarters, hinting that living with all the trappings of opulence is for naught without the independence and freedom to truly assert the claim for what is rightfully yours in the world.
