Choi Su-jong and Ha Hee-ra to play husband and wife

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.

Amazing, but what's up with all the president dramas? Is it a drama fad, and everyone wants to make one about being the president. Anyways, this is going to be epic (atleast in the acting department).

I admire them for being married for so long -- 17 years is no joke in the entertainment industry.

Ahh, this is so cute! They're one celebrity couple I really hope would last forever, and believe they would too.

But surprisingly, I notice that when real-life celebrity couples act together, the chemistry tends to be not so great. (ex. Yoo Dong Geun and Jeon In Hwa). It must be awkward with the entire cast and crew looking at you.

what an excellent observation! so true. i like your explanation. the chem seems much better when the couple is falling in love as is so often the case. ^^

I must say, though, I never saw chem. between Oh Man Seok and Jo-An even tho i watched nearly every ep of Everybody Cha Cha Cha (and it nearly killed me). ^^

"I adore the idea that husband and wife will be playing husband and wife."

I'm of the opposite opinion, it feels rather lackluster when they're already married in real life.

What about Kim Nam-ju and her Kim Seung-woo? They were sizzling together - though it was a fashion spread not acting.

agree -- they looked great together! maybe still photos are better than live action. ^^

yes yes, that what I was thinking when she was announced to star Queen of Reversal...it was good if Kim Seung-woo would be her co-star.
But then..it probably would be awkward, like when she appeared on his talk show Win Win.. :D

That a very impressive idea. I have a good feeling about this drama. I may more interest about this drama than Dae Mul. Have a good luck for future. Love it. When they act they will not awkward when they stand side by side acting together.

Maybe the roles will help them in their marriage, maybe re-kindle some emotions?
I have no way of knowing in their case, but I hear that often in marriage after a few year the spark dies down and gets replaced with more mundane things.

actually i think the general public usually doesn't like to see real-life couples together on-screen. seems like couples tend to break up after acting together too; which i hope doesn't happen to them since they (aside from cha in pyo and shin ae ra) are my favorite acting couple.

and i think they've acted together in a drama before. that's how they met. i remember in an old-ass interview, ha hee ra shared a story about them during the time they were shooting that drama.

Actually, they were in a movie together back in the early 90s called "You see, It's a secret"... Choi Su Jong played a teacher, and Ha Hee Ra played a student who has a crush on him. It's an old movie, when they both were breaking out in movies and tv dramas. I used to have a crush on Choi Su Jong when he was on a lot of tv dramas back in the day...

i usually am against married celebrities acting together because in hollywood, many of those who have acted together ended up getting a divorce :(...hopefully, that's not the case between these two.
