Jo Kwon regularly appears as a regular guest on variety shows such as "Star King", popular for his playful and frivolous dance gags. He was part of "Dirty Eyed Girls" on an episode of 2PM's variety show "Wild Bunny", performing a parody of popular Brown Eyed Girls song Abracadabra. The music video became extremely popular. In September 2009, Jo Kwon was one of the main MCs for SBS's environmental variety show "Find it! Green Gold" with Super Junior member Shindong, SS501 member Kim Hyung Joon, and former Fly To The Sky member Brian Joo. He also replaced Jaebeom on historical culture variety show Nodaji after his internet controversy. Both shows were later canceled due to low ratings.

He joined the cast of We Got Married on October 3, 2009, coupled up with Brown Eyed Girls member Ga-In. Although they were initially only supposed to feature for the Chuseok special, their appearance brought in the highest ratings yet for Season II, and they were announced a permanent couple. Jo Kwon was diagnosed with H1N1 on October 28, 2009, causing him to postpone filming We Got Married. The next day, a representative stated that Jo Kwon was recovering quickly after treatment.

In 2010, he became a permanent cast member of Family Outing 2. He is also currently acting in the sitcom All My Love with co stars Park Min Sun, Kim Gab Soo and fellow idol and 'wife' Ga In from Brown Eyed Girls.

He released a digital single "우리 사랑하게 됐어요" ("We Fell in Love") on December 16, 2009, a duet with his We Got Married partner Ga-in., which topped variety online music charts, winning 2 awards on Music Bank's K-Charts and the "Most Popular Background Phone Music" on the Gaon Charts. 50 million won from the profits of the song were donated to help out for Haiti's earthquake. For these efforts, Jo Kwon was given an award at the 3rd Korea Sharing Awards ceremony.

Jo Kwon participated in Wax's repackaged album Unplugged Side A. He sang a duet with her titled "이별이야기" ("Farewell Song"), released on March 24, 2010.

On June 30, 2010, Jo Kwon released his first solo digital single titled "고백하던 날" ("The Day I Confessed"), a song he partially composed during the We Got Married broadcast for Ga-in. The song reached #1 on Cyworld real time charts the day after its release.
