Joseon Attorney star Woo Do Hwan and Squid Game actress Lee Yoo Mi are in talks to collaborate with It’s Okay to Not Be Okay writer Cho Yong.

Mr. Plankton is a new rom-com following the lives of people who, like plankton, are unable to connect with anyone or anything and simply drift through life. It comes from It’s Okay to Not Be Okay writer Cho Yong and Live Up to Your Name and Juvenile Justice director Hong Jong Chan.

If Woo Do Hwan does join the production, he’ll portray Hae Jo, a man with an empty heart and is unable to form attachments, much like plankton. The story will capture his journey to break free from his mundane and tedious world and pursue a dazzling, colorful future. Lee Yoo Mi was offered the role of Jo Jae Mi, a woman who wishes to become Hae Jo’s family by showering him with undying love as she searches for the meaning of life.

Mr. Plankton will be produced by Base Story and is planned as a 10-episode series, with discussions underway for its OTT release.
