Kim Hee-ae, Park Hae-joon confirmed as leads in JTBC drama ‘Couple’s World’

Couple’s World, a new family melodrama from JTBC, announced its main cast on November 7. The series tells the story of a once-happy couple who falls into a web of lies and revenge after one of them betrays the other.

Kim Hee-ae (Second To Last Love) and Park Hae-joon (Arthdal Chronicles) will be seen in lead roles. Kim Hee-ae, who is returning to the small screen after three years, will be playing a successful doctor who has to deal with the betrayal of her husband. Her character is expected to undergo an extreme emotional transformation, from hurt and sadness to anger. Meanwhile, Park Hae-joon will be playing an aspiring movie director who works at an entertainment agency and falls into a dangerous illicit relationship, despite being in love with his wife.

Kim and Park will be joined by supporting cast members Park Sun-young, Kim Young-min (Crash landing On You), Lee Kyoung-young (Vagabond), and Kim Sun-kyung. Newbie actors Chae Kook-hee, Han So-hee, Lee Hak-joo, and Shim Eun-woo will also appear in the upcoming series.

Couple’s World will be directed by PD Mo Wan-il whose previous projects include Misty (2018) and Beautiful Mind (2016). It is penned by writer Joo Hyun of Revolutionary Love (2017) and My Horrible Boss (2016).

The series is set to be broadcast as a Friday-Saturday drama in 2020, following Ha Ji-won’s Chocolate and Park Seo-joon’s Itaewon Class.

Indoor Enthusiast (Esha) is a staff writer at Kdramapal. She is responsible for bringing all the latest happenings in Kdramaland, as well as features and recaps of currently airing dramas, to the readers of the site. As a gender studies student, she loves analyzing K-dramas through the lens of gender politics and social justice. You're most likely to find her droning on and on about how Ji Hae-soo from It's Okay That's Love and Sung Bora from Reply 1988 are the best heroines to ever grace our screens. Her favorite dramas tend to be thrillers like Secret Forest and Signal, as well as heartwarming shows like Misaeng. When not in the mood for either of those, you can find her binging on shows about female friendships a la Age of Youth or rom-coms that come with sprinklings of feminism, like Because This Life Is My First. She lives in India, spends all her free time reading books, and would love nothing more than to meet Gong Hyo-jin and sign away her life's earnings to the actress.
