This series is based on the 1987 American movie Overboard. Anna Jo (Han Ye Seul) is a rude, feisty, and audacious American-bred heiress who can never be satisfied. She returns to Korea only to continue being a controlling wife to her already cowardly husband, Billy Park (Kim Sung Min). When her yacht gets stuck for repairs, she hires local handyman Jang Chul Soo (Oh Ji Ho) to fix her shower, but when they have a heated spat over her dissatisfaction and non payment, she pushes him overboard and dunks his tools into the ocean right along with him. Later, after a quarrel with Billy that threatens to end their marriage, she herself gets drunkenly pitched overboard and falls victim to a bad case of amnesia.



The world Hyeon Bin and Song Hye-kyo act in

Drama's big names have gathered. Director Pyo Min-soo of "
In-soon is Pretty" will direct, and writer Noh Hee-kyeong of "More Beautiful Than a Flower" and "Goodbye Solo" will write, and Hyeon Bin of "My Name is Kim Sam-soon" and Song Hye-kyo of "Full House" will act. It's an outstanding group worthy of the drama "On Air". Their work is "The World They Live In", a drama about a director's work and love. Hyeon Bin plays a promising director, Jeong Ji-oh, and Song Hye-kyo plays director Joo Joon-yeong, who has experienced directing plays and tries a miniseries. Overcoming the complications that arise from unspoken barriers within the drama field is the foundation of the story. Of course, it also ties in love into the competition of the two producers. The production company, YEG, said, "Director Pyo Min-soo, who has a prominent way of subtly expressing emotions, and writer Noh Hee-kyeong held a long search for actors who could embrace the character in the best way".

"The World They Live In" was the drama that Director Pyo mentioned as "
In-soon is Pretty" ended last December. He said, "I'm planning to work with writer Noh Hee-kyeong on my next work, and the broadcasting company will be the stage". They already worked on "Lie" and "Foolish Love", and fans of writer Noh have waited for the two to work again. The production company said that writer Noh has been searching for producing locations for two years. The key is how different it will be from other dramas with broadcasting companies as the focus, such as "Spotlight", starring Ji Jin-hee and Son Ye-jin, which airs May 14, and "On Air". "The World They Live In" is to air in November.
