Oohlala Spouses takes bickering to hilarious extremes
by | September 19, 2012 | 45 Comments

The teaser (and more stills) is out for Oohlala Spouses, the body-swapping romantic comedy series soon to hit KBS, and it looks hysterical. Snarky and fast-flying with the banter should suit this series well.

The preview takes the form of a political debate, with Shin Hyun-joon representing husbands nationwide (aka the Husband Party), while wife Kim Jung-eun speaks for the Ajumma Party. They lay out their clashing platforms: She’s got a problem with husbands liking their infidelity, and he pins the blame on monogomy as a flawed concept.

They’re sarcastic and speed-talky: “Ohhhh, what wonderful phil-AN-thro-py,” she sneers. To which he exclaims that wives steal away television remote controls, and for what? “GAKSITAL? Entertainment Weekly?!” Pwahaha.


That devolves into name-calling and childish neener-neeners, and it’s hilarious. Immaturity FTW! These are two actors with awesome comic timing, and if the show’s going to let them show that off to such side-splitting effect, it’s gonna be so much fun to watch.

I was approaching this drama with positive hopes, but after watching that preview? Sold. And that’s even before they somehow wind up in each other’s bodies. I’m guessing they remain just as childish as ever, but with sight gags to add to the laugh factor.

Oohlala Spouses premieres on October 8.

    Hahaha! Gaksital & Entertainment Weekly? Those are on Shin Hyun-joon’s filmography! Hilarious that he mentioned 2 of his KBS shows. *scrolled up to confirm* Yup! Oohlala’s on KBS too. πŸ™‚

  13. 13 Jagi

    Bwahaha! I am in.

  14. 14 Muuta

    Haha πŸ™‚
    That’s just like them to mention Gaksital and Entertainment Weekly.
    Oh, and the way they did the “political debate” was from a skit in Gag Concert some time back. Brings back some memories πŸ™‚

  15. 15 Arhazivory

    haha. love it. Especially the Gaksital and EW plug.

  16. 16 Suzi Q

    Just discovering Shin Hyun Joon. Loved him in Dummy Mommy, Gaksital, and Entertainment Weekly. He is absolutely hilarious! Love his derp facial expressions.

    I’ve seen many of Kim Jung Eun’s works. I especially loved her in Marrying the Mafia and Lovers in Paris. She’s great too.

    Both of them together, they look cute and funny.In the teaser, they are a hoot! Definitely gonna watch it!

  17. 17 omo

    A must watch. *makes a sticky on my desktop, sets alarm on cellphone, sticks a note on the fridge*. Hmmm….let me see…what else?

  18. 18 bd

    Shin Hyun-jun is one of the few actors who can do serious drama and comedy (including slapstick) equally well.

    He’s done films like “Marrying the Mafia II” and “Master Kims” which are just goofy fun, a lot due to Shin’s comedic timing and on-screen charm.

  19. 19 Cam

    BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! I really loooove this trailer & it’s really hilarious XD XD
    I first saw Shin Hyun Jun in that drama “Stairway to Stairway” about six years ago! He’s doing so great job at his previous dramas “Dummy Mommy” and “Bridal Mask”.

    I AM IIINNNN!! I will try to watch this if I have time! πŸ˜‰

    • 19.1 Jossy

      “Stairway to Stairway” LOL! sorry that just made my night πŸ˜€ I too first saw him in Stairway to Heaven and would take him over Kwon Sang Woo any day!

      • 19.1.1 JO

        Lol, I hated him in stairway (when I was young). I was just grossed out.
        But I like him now (after Dummy Mommy) seriously. I’ve seen him all my life but because of stairway he always felt gross to me (until, once again, Dummy Mommy)

  20. 20 rawr89

    ROFL isn’t this the debate from Gag Concert? I love that segment!

  21. 21 hyunahan

    haha sounds fun. I thought men liked Gaksital though.. my boyfriend’s mom and dad watched Gaksital together whenever it came on and his dad was the one who would constantly go around saying, “GAKSITAL”

  22. 22 yee

    that was hilarious!! Looking forward for this!

  23. 23 mjfan

    Iam sold since the very first moment I read about this drama and it just keeps growing on me , I REALLY REALLY LOVE THIS HILARIOUS AWESOME CAST

  24. 24 Tati

    Looks interesting. This may be the drama that gets me back to kdramaland after a few months stint watching jdoramas.

    They seem to match each other’s comedic talent (and I actually paused for a few moments on that pic of them in hospital gowns. Hilarious, especially SHJ’s expression). If they can show romantic chemistry as well then I would be sold like Dramabeans.

    Will definitely watch out for more updates of this drama.

  25. 25 Abbie

    This looks hilarious. Can’t wait.

  26. 26 jane

    they are both for comic roles haha love the marrying the mafia movie series where both have been casted πŸ˜€

  27. 27 HK

    So excited for this fun show!!!

  28. 28 lovepark

    I hope the atmosphere of the drama reflects the trailer because then it would be a hoot. I’m expecting a lot of meta jokes and just simply a rioting time. AH! My expectations are too high, but I’m excited to see Shin Hyun-joo in a comedy.

  29. 29 MsB

    Already there if I can find it subbed

  30. 30 junhee

    the premiere was moved to OCTOBER 1, guys!! OCTOBER 1 9:55 KST!!!!
