Real-life married couple Choi Su-jong (Comrades) and Ha Hee-ra (Give Me Food) will be acting together as onscreen husband and wife for the first time. Upcoming KBS drama President will pair them as President and First Lady, setting the stage for a pretty epic first onscreen meeting.
The couple married in 1993 and have never acted together in a project, despite both having mile-long resumes in film and tv.
Choi Su-jong will play Jang Il-joon, an idealistic civil rights lawyer turned congressman, putting him on the path toward the Blue House. Ha Hee-ra will play Jo So-hee, daughter to a chaebol family who’s whip-smart, and beautiful to boot. My guess is that their love story will span several decades, as the drama is described as Jang’s journey toward becoming President.
I like the trajectory of the story as it’s described, because I think the campaign will be such great drama fodder, with scandals, reversals, and a hard-earned victory. Plus, I adore the idea that husband and wife will be playing husband and wife.
President follows Runaway: Plan B and premieres December 8 on KBS.
