Yoo Yeon Seok and Chae Soo Bin to star as married couple in The Number You Have Dialed? Here’s what we know

Yoo Yeon Seok and Chae Soo Bin to play a couple with no feelings for each other?

According to Korean news media, actors Yoo Yeon Seok and Chae Soo Bin may be starring in the upcoming drama The Number You Have Dialed (working title).

The new Korean drama, which is based on a webtoon of the same name, tells the story of Baek Sa Eon, a young politician from an elite family who receives a phone call telling him his wife, Hong Hee Joo, has been kidnapped.

Hee Joo is a sign language interpreter who suffers from aphasia, the inability to speak correctly or to interpret the written language in the way it was meant.

The marriage between the two was an arranged marriage, so they are more of a couple in name only.

Due to the kidnapping though, feelings begin to change.

Yoo Yeon Seok has been offered the role of Baek Sa Eon, while Chae Soo Bin would play his wife.

Both actors are represented by King Kong by Starship, who confirmed they had been offered main roles in The Number You Have Dialed, and were both considering them positively.

Not much else is known about the K-drama so far, but we will keep you updated as soon as more information is released.
