Coupang Play will launch an original sitcom called “Unicorn” (literal title)!
The casting of actors Shin Ha Kyun and Won Jin Ah in “Unicorn” was announced on March 17. Lee Byeong Heon of “Extreme Job” and “Melo Is My Nature” and Kim Hye Young, who also co-directed “Melo Is My Nature,” will direct the sitcom. Yoo Byung Jae and In Ji Hye of “Extraordinary You” will write it.
Coupang Play has established itself as an emerging powerhouse in the domestic content market with a string of successful hits. Expectations are high for their next project, “Unicorn,” which features a strong cast as well as dependable directors and writers.
Shin Ha Kyun, who was praised for his performance in “Beyond Evil” and won the Best Actor award at the Baeksang Arts Awards, will elevate the sitcom’s acting in “Unicorn.” Furthermore, Won Jin Ah, who recently gained attention for her diverse acting in “Hellbound” and “New Year Blues,” will play a role that is completely different from her previous projects.
“I am happy to bring big laughter through the new original sitcom ‘Unicorn,’ with the top production cast and crew in Korea,” said Kim Sung Han, the Head of Coupang Play. Please keep it in mind.”
“Unicorn” is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2022.
