With the Adam Couple’s Jo Kwon and Ga-in set to make their acting debuts on November 1st through MBC’s daily sitcom, “Request,” many have been wondering about the story behind their casting.
The two have been receiving cast offers since the beginning of September, but had to reject them due to scheduling conflicts. Although the two stated publicly that they were wrapped up in their singing careers, the internal situation revealed to be quite different. One representative stated, “Since the two are the representative stars of MBC’s ‘We Got Married,’ different broadcasting companies try not to use Jo Kwon and Ga-in in their variety programs.

A representative stated, “After a long deliberation, the two have finally decided to join the cast as cute twins. They have expressed that they would like to concentrate on the sitcom for at least six months.”

On the other hand, MBC’s “Request” is set to begin filming in October. The sitcom is about two families that live amongst one another, one being poor and nice, and the other being rich and selfish. The Adam Couple will be playing the role of twins from a single mother, who eventually join the family of the rich step-father.
