The two actors will attempt to portray the twists and turns of love that many marriage-eligible folks will be able to identify with in a realistic yet humorous manner.

Speaking through a production crew rep, Kang said, "Marriage Plot′s Yoo is an intelligent and ambitious modern woman but she sometimes gets herself caught, both intentionally and unintentionally, in absurd situations. So far, I have mostly played the ‘nice or innocent’ characters; therefore, I look forward to the challenges of playing a different role."

Lee added, "I feel nervous as this is my first starring role in a drama. Furthermore, I am already uneasy because the director stressed that I need to be able to capture the attention of female viewers like Hyun Bin and Kim Dong Wook. However, there was good chemistry during the script reading and I look forward to working with Kang. Director Lee Min Woo and the staff have also been very helpful. These days, I am very busy with the production but I′m also having a great time.”

Marriage Plot is a 16 episode romantic comedy detailing the daily life of four marriage-eligible women living with their potential grooms, due to their mother’s scheme. Yoo and Lee meet each other through work and end up living together in a boarding house, setting the stage for their ensuing love story.

The drama will premiere on April 2, right after Shut Up: Flower Boy Band.
