Jeon Do-yeon and Ryu Joon-yeol will take lead roles in the JTBC drama series “Disqualified as a Human,” scheduled to air in the latter half of the year.
 
The series is about people living mundane lives who worry about being worthless to society.
 
Jeon will portray Boo-jung, a woman who feels she has achieved nothing, and Ryu will play Kang-jae, who watches his youth slip away. The story will focus on how the duo empathize with one another and start to heal.
 
Screenwriter Kim Ji-hye, known for “Architecture 101” (2012), “Hope” (2013) and “My Love, My Bride” (2014), will write the series while Heo Jin-ho, who directed “Christmas in August” (1998), “One Fine Spring Day” (2001), “The Last Princess” (2016) and “Forbidden Dream” (2019), is producing and directing.
 
The series is Heo’s first credit as a television producer.
 
“I’m so grateful and excited by the fact that I will be working with such two [outstanding] actors in my first drama series,” Heo said in a statement released by JTBC. “I will try to warmly convey the story of the lonely lives of Boo-jung and Kang-jae.”
