Lee Seon-kyun! I could watch you be this character for two hundred hours. Why is this movie not a drama? ARGH. Here’s a look at the trailer for the new hijinks-happy rom-com All About My Wife, about a meek hubby (Lee Seon-kyun) who’s too scared to ask for a divorce from his bold and sassy wife (Im Soo-jung), so he hires the town Casanova (because yunno, every town’s got one of those) to seduce her away. Naturally, things go awry.
The trailer shows Hubby falling in love at first sight with the seemingly perfect woman, except as soon as they’re married, she turns out to be a crotchety nag-a-thon. He has buyer’s remorse (which has me saying, “This is what sensibly lengthy engagements are for!”) and wants a divorce, but knows he can’t get it the normal way. His buddy, played by Kim Jung-tae (Dream High 2), offers the handy suggestion: Why don’t you make HER want to divorce YOU?
Enter the “legendary” Casanova, played by Ryu Seung-ryong. Mrawr.
I love the way Hubby approaches Casanova, like he’s the Godfather or something. “D-d-do you really have a power that others do not possess? Please seduce my wife.” First order of duty is to write down everything about her (hence the title) — her likes and dislikes, what she eats, when she does or does not wear underwear. Isn’t that cheating? Does a true Casanova need crib notes?
But it turns out that they aren’t much help, because loverboy gets shut down over and over again, sending the pair on what looks like quite the odd little bromance. I’ve never heard of two guys bonding over seducing one woman, but I’m always open to new kinds of wacky.
