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.
