In a perfect world, in a perfect marriage, husband and wife would be happy and content to be together all day, even together at work.
Unfortunately, some people turn their workplace into an escape from their spouse, engulfing themselves in their work to ignore their marriage.
Well, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, that won`t be an option for a pair of couples set to hit the airwaves this spring.
As part of the program shuffle in the run up to the March listening season, SBS Radio has announced the husband-wife pairing of actors Nam Sung-jin and Kim Ji-young for a variety program as well as comedian couple Lee Bong-won and Park Mi-sun.
Kim retains her same timeslot on SBS Radio, but will be joined by her husband instead of Kim Il-joong, with whom she had been previously hosting.
Meanwhile, Lee and Park will be teaming up on the air as they do in their household at 8:30 p.m., bringing their daily lives to listeners in their new program "Park Mi-sun and Lee Bong-won`s `Our House Radio.`"
Just as their talents would indicate, the two couples will host decidedly different programs. The Kim and Nam combination will produce a variety program, suitable to their 12:20 to 2 p.m. timeslot, where listeners tend to be workers, stay-at-home spouses and people on the road whereas Park and Lee will showcase their comedic wit in the evening.
Regardless, both programs appeal to married couples in their 30s and 40s, and who better to relate to such an audience than real-life husband and wife combinations?
The two couples will undergo a new set of vows on the airwaves beginning March 31 -- until death do them part, or at least until poor ratings do.
