According to media outlets, Yoon Kye Sang and Jung Ryeo Won were offered the lead roles in the new series The Married Couple Is Jobless (literal title).
Based on the essay of the same name, the show tells the story of a couple who quit their jobs to “have nonstop fun in their long lives.” It was written by the husband Pyun Sung Joon and was published in 2020.
If Yoon Kye Sang and Jung Ryeo Won join the show, they’ll be playing the couple. Jung Ryeo Won will play the wife, Yoon Hye Ja, a publishing planner who majored in Korean Literature. She can’t stand injustice and pretends to be all tough and smart but is all soft on the inside. Yoon Kye Sang will play Pyu Sung Joon, who worked as a copywriter for an advertising company for over 20 years.
After the report came out, both actors’ agencies responded that they’re both positively reviewing the offers.
