The lead cast and plot insights
Shin Min-Ah and Kim Young-Dae will play the leads in this eagerly-awaited drama. Penned by Her Private Life writer Kim Hye Young, Because I Want No Loss has a unique premise. The story revolves around a woman who orchestrates a fake marriage to safeguard her financial interests. The man she hires to play her new ‘husband’ is hapless part-time worker who is a chance acquaintance.
Shin Min-Ah steps into the character of Son Hae-Young, a woman with an unwavering aversion to financial loss. Her life takes a rather unconventional turn when she risks missing out on a promotion at her workplace. Her solution? A well-planned fake marriage.
Kim Young-Dae portrays Kim Ji-Wook, a night shift part-timer at a local convenience store. He is known for his upstanding character, and even serves as a civilian police officer. One day, Hae-Young, a customer with whom he feels particularly incompatible, presents him with an improbable proposition. Ji-Wook reluctantly agrees to assume the role of her fake groom, balancing his new identity with his part time job.
The production team’s vision
