Korean actors Joo Sang-wook and Rhee Min-jung have confirmed to take on the lead roles in MBC’s upcoming drama series.

The two stars will each portray the male lead and female lead of MBC’s new Wednesday and Thursday drama series “Devious Divorcee” (translated title), set to hit air after current series “Miss Korea” ends its run next month.

While Joo will take on Samaritan IT genius Cha Jung-woo who has both passion and compassion, Rhee will describe a woman with exceptional beauty named Na Ae-ra, who tries to re-marry her ex-husband Cha after the former IT geek earns huge success.

Through the switched-off drama, the two stars are each coming back to the small screen four months after KBS’s “Good Doctor” for Joo and nine months after SBS’s “All About My Romance” for Rhee, also her first project after married with actor Lee Byung-hun last August.

“Devious Divorcee” will be directed by producer Koh Dong-sun, who was acclaimed with successful TV series “Sweet Spy,” “Merry Mary,” “Queen of Housewives” and most recently, “Flower, I Am.”
