Joo Sang Wook Joins Lee Min Jung in Drama “Cunning Single Lady”

Cunning Single Lady

Actor Joo Sang Wook will join Lee Min Jung in MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “Cunning Single Lady.”

“Cunning Single Lady” will follow after currently airing “Miss Korea.” Joo Sang Wook plays male lead, “sexy and single” Cha Jung Woo, while Lee Min Jung will play female lead Na Ae Ra, the afore-mentioned “cunning single lady.”

The drama is a romantic comedy, in which a divorced man and his former wife meet once more and learn the meaning of true love, true partnership and real marriage. Na Ae Ra is the single-again cunning lady, who decides to seduce her ex-husband, now a rich chaebol, while Cha Jung Woo is the now-successful ex-husband who wants revenge against her. The drama promises to be a delightful watch, as it chronicles the maturation process and eventual reconciliation of these two ex-lovers.

Joo Sang Wook’s character, “devilish guy” Cha Jung Woo, is described as being a humanitarian genius IT developer who possesses passion and drive, and considers human relationships to be highly important. Lee Min Jung’s Na Ae Ra believes in beauty over brains. She majored in engineering, got married to and divorced Cha Jung Woo. Now she’s just wandering around in life, so she wants to give her successful ex-husband another shot.

Joo Sang Wook comes into this project after doing “Good Doctor,” while Lee Min Jung’s last project was “All About My Romance.” Both have received praise for improving and widening their spectrums with each successive project. We’re just curious to find out how explosive their chemistry will be.

“Cunning Single Lady” will be directed by Go Dong Sun (“Me Ri, Dae Gu’s Attack and Defense Battle,” “Queen of Housewives“), while the script will be in the hands of writers Choi Soo Young and Lee Ha Na. It is expected to air after “Miss Korea” ends in February.
