Kim Hee-ae makes drama comeback in new JTBC drama A Couple’s World
After 4 long years, Kim Hee-ae (Second to Last Love) has confirmed she will be returning to dramaland in JTBC’s upcoming Friday-Saturday drama A Couple’s World. Joining her in the drama is actor Park Hae-joon (Arthdal Chronicles) who also confirmed casting.
The story of A Couple’s World delves into the relationship between married couples when the love that you once becomes broken by a partner’s betrayal. And it examines the psyches of the individual parties as that broken trust spirals into a tense cycle of revenge, complicated by feelings of both love and hate for one another.
Kim Hee-ae plays the central character of Ji Sun-woo, a self-made woman who specializes in family medicine. She had once felt blessed in her life to receive unchanging love from her husband, raising a dutiful son together, and having accomplished both wealth and fame in her career. But everything comes crashing down after discovering that her husband had been unfaithful and that the people she loved had betrayed her, and, in a drastic turn, she becomes determined to take revenge.
Park Hae-joon takes on the role of the husband, Lee Tae-oh. His dream was to become a director, but, in reality, he runs an entertainment talent agency which was started with assistance from his capable wife. Although his love for his wife is still true, on the spur of the moment, he makes an irreversible and risky mistake which sinks him down a path of despair.
On the production team for A Couple’s World, PD Mo Wan-il (Misty, Beautiful Mind) is set to direct and writing will be done by writer Joo Hyun (Ms. Temper and Nam Jung-ki).
JTBC’s upcoming A Couple’s World is currently being planned to air following Itaewon Class.
