According to Hancinema’s article on the new drama ‘욱씨남정기’ (Uk Ssi Nam Jeong Gi) its English title is ‘Bad Tempered Grown-ups’. I wonder if it’s an alternative title since the name Nam Jeong Gi is missing. Could the first 2 characters ‘욱씨’ be referring to the female character and read as ‘Miss Hot Temper & Nam Jeong Gi’?
Anyway if the conflicting media reports have been sorted out and confirmed, Sang Hyun’s character Nam Jeong Gi is a timid/reserved but warm hearted Cosmetic Marketing Division Director in contrast to Lee Yo Won’s hot-tempered character Ok Da Jung. Polar opposites that drive each other up the wall or perhaps be a balance to the other’s temperament? 
According to the media reports, shooting of the drama has begun. I’m certainly looking forward to March.
Amendment above:
On going through the articles again, I noticed that there is a slight difference in the female character’s first name 옥 so perhaps it could be a play on it as her nickname ‘욱씨’ (Miss Hot Temper?).
