Unexpected Business follows these two urbanites, Jo In Sung and Cha Tae Hyun, who unexpectedly take on the management of a retail store that encompasses everything from a supermarket to a small food court. Throughout the series, the pair have not only forged heartwarming encounters with local villagers but also garnered rave reviews for their real friendships and special chemistry with guest stars.
This season, the stage moves from Korea to the coastal city of Monterey in central California. The teaser released today offers a sneak peek into the market these two run. With a sign reading “ASIAN MARKET,” the shop’s exterior has a familiar yet foreign vibe that triggers a touch of nostalgia. The scale of the shop seems grander in the American setting, amping up anticipation for the challenges and triumphs that the two stars will face.
In the teaser, Cha Tae Hyun relishes a brief moment of respite, telling Jo In Sung, who’s standing in front of the shop, “Oh man, it’s so refreshing. The weather is fantastic today.” Yet, in true shopkeeper fashion, he swiftly switches gears to greet departing customers. What new stories will await us in the backdrop of the United States—a melting pot of immigrants?
Meanwhile, Unexpected Business 3 is scheduled to premiere sometime next month. One thing is for sure: we’re in for one heck of a ride.
