Director Lee Byung-hun, who received a lot of love from the public for his novel setting and lines with a unique sense of humor, from 'Extreme Job' that mobilized 10 million viewers to the drama 'Melo is constitution', takes on the role of creative director, Director Kim Hye-young, who captured all the laughs, is in charge of directing.


The screenplay is based on writer Yoo Byung-jae, who has brought laughter through black comedy such as 'SNL' and Netflix's 'B's Joke', as well as active TV activities, and the drama 'Extraordinary You' Written by In-Hye In, the author adds perfection.


As Shin Ha-kyun showed impressive performances in 'Extreme Job', etc., he is planning to perform a hard carry with an upgraded performance in 'Unicorn'.

Kim Wook casts in Coupang Play sitcom 'Unicorn'... Acting with Shin Ha-kyun and Won Jin-ah




Actor Kim Wook will appear in Coupang Play's original sitcom 'Unicorn'.


The original sitcom 'Unicorn', prepared ambitiously by Coupang Play in 2022, is led by Lee Byung-hun, creative director of 'Extreme Job' and 'Melodrama,' director Kim Hye-young of 'Melo is constitution', and writer Yoo Byung-jae of 'SNL' and 'Somehow. Writer In-Hye In-Hye of 'Discovered a Day' is already a hot topic, boasting the power of the production crew.


In addition, the unique character combination of 'Unicorn' is another expectation point. Kim Wook joined a solid lineup of actors such as Shin Ha-kyun, Won Jin-ah, and Bae Yu-ram, heralding a fresher fun and chemistry.


In the play, Kim Wook takes on the role of Philip, an employee of the marketing team of McComb, a startup company. With his looks and passion for work that draws everyone's attention, he is a 'mere light' in the company, but when you get to know him, he is a reversal of character with fatal flaws.


Kim Wook made his debut in the 2016 drama 'Neighborhood Hero', and has since debuted in movies 'Ansi Castle', dramas 'Miss Hammurabi', 'Bad Papa', 'Melting Me', 'The King: Eternal Monarch', etc., regardless of role or weight. While firmly building his own character and building filmography, he is proving his infinite potential by being selected as one of the most anticipated films in 2022, including the sitcom 'Unicorn' and the recent movie 'Secrets I can't tell'.


Through his agency Yuborn Company, Kim Wook said, “I am thrilled and happy to be part of the project. I will do my best with a grateful heart to become a lovely 'Philip' who can bring laughter and emotion to viewers. We ask for a lot of interest and anticipation in the future.”

Meanwhile, Coupang Play's original sitcom 'Unicorn' starring Kim Wook is scheduled to be released this summer.

Won Jin Ah Is The Employee Of The Month In Eccentric Poster For Upcoming Drama “Unicorn”



Jul 22, 2022
by L. Kim

Coupang Play’s original sitcom “Unicorn” has unveiled a poster starring Won Jin Ah!

Written by Yoo Byung Jae, “Unicorn” will follow the riveting tale of Steve (played by Shin Ha Kyun), the slightly mad mastermind behind McCom, and his crew as they navigate the chaotic battlefield of Korean start-ups.

Won Jin Ah takes the ole of Ashley, one of Steve’s smartest employees and a member of the innovation team at McCom. Fans are looking forward to her transformation as she will showcase a character she has never played before.

The newly released poster with the words “The Outstanding Employee of the Month” features Won Jin Ah as Ashley. There are three figures of Ashley wearing the same unicorn headband, but her expressions are all different. Unlike the Ashley in the center, who is smiling happily while hugging the unicorn doll she got as a reward for her splendid work, the other two figures look less than thrilled. Her smile slowly fades away as her true reaction rises to the surface.

Lee Yoo-jin joins Coupang sitcom 'Unicorn'... Acting with Shin Hakyun




Actor Lee Yoo-jin is working with Shin Ha-kyun. On the 28th, her agency Blossom Entertainment announced, "Lee Yoo-jin will appear in Coupang Play's sitcom 'Unicorn'."


'Unicorn' is a collaboration between creative director Lee Byung-hun of 'Extreme Job', director Lee Byung-hun of 'Extreme Job', director Kim Hye-young of 'Melodrama', writer Yoo Byeong-jae of 'SNL', and creative writer In-hye Inh-hye of 'Extreme Job'. Actors Shin Ha-kyun and Won Jin-ah have teamed up.


In the play, Lee Yoo-jin takes on the role of 'J', a person who joins K-startup McCombs with an unprecedented hiring of the CEO 'Steve (Shin Ha-kyun)' at the clubhouse. While receiving Steve's expectations, he arouses curiosity with a suspicious figure that seems to be hiding something, and depicts the struggle to survive in the harsh startup world.


Lee Yoo-jin made his debut with her MBC 'Goddess of Fire Jeong-i' (2013). Since then, he has appeared in tvN's 'Knowing Wife', JTBC's 'Melodramatic', and SBS' 'Do you like Brahms?' appeared, etc. Lee Yoo-jin said, "I am excited to be able to greet you with a new work," and "It is a work that can give viewers a pleasant laugh, so please look forward to it." Scheduled to be released in August.





Kim Young-ah confirmed to appear in 'Unicorn'... Acting with Shin Ha-kyun and Won Jin-ah




Kim Young-a takes on the role of Monica, who has a dream of good luck in the play and came as the general manager of the personnel team of the K-startup McComb. Monica, a former executive of a large corporation, shouts for authority to escape, but in fact, she is a self-contradictory person who has the pride of a large corporation more than anyone else.


In particular, the difficult-to-understand terms that Monica uses for flirting are common among her employees, and she will give viewers a pleasant laugh by exuding different chemistry with her characters in the play.


Kim Young-a is an actress with delicate expressive power regardless of genre in a number of works such as SBS 'Now, We're Breaking Up', Coupang Play Series 'One Day', 'Anna', Netflix 'Boy Judgment', SBS 'Meet the Guy', etc. was solidified.
