Two lawyers married to each other. Man, that hits really close to home. I hope to god the script for Can’t Lose with Choi Ji Woo and Yoon Sang Hyun is good, because a story resting solely in the charisma and chemistry if the leads without much of a hook otherwise (bickering couple in the midst of a messy divorce does not sound appealing in the least to me) will sink quickly.
Especially if the story goes in circles of fight, make up, fight, make up or toggling back and forth between divorce and reconciliation. All the early stills I’ve seen convince me this pairing looks well-cast and sparks will definitely fly. Check out the couple at a baseball game and fighting on the roof. Whether happy or angry, they connect with each other, and that will hopefully make the audience connect with their story.
