Marriage angst and partner-swapping in Warm Words

Here’s a peek at SBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Warm Words, set to take over Suspicious Housekeeper’s timeslot in just a few weeks. The 20-episode melodrama is about two married couples and one affair that threatens to unravel both households. It’s purported to be Desperate Housewives-y, but the teaser seems just straight melo to me, not that the thirty-second teaser reveals much about the show other than the affair that will wring tears. It does start with an intriguing line: “I meet my husband’s lover every day…”

The drama comes from the writer of Can We Get Married and the PD of Five Fingers, and is about the two extended families that hang in the balance when a married man and woman start a dangerous love affair. Frankly you’ve already got an uphill battle in the sympathy department when that’s your premise, but I suppose that’s why you cast hot ajusshi Ji Jin-hee (The Great Seer) to play your hero, to stack as many points in your favor as possible? He’s married to Kim Ji-soo (King Geunchogo) and they have two teenage sons, currently studying abroad in the States. Kim Ji-soo will discover her husband’s affair and quietly keep tabs on him, which either sounds really sad or really scary, or maybe both.

Han Hye-jin (26 Years) plays the woman he falls in love with, and she’s married to Lee Sang-woo (Goddess of Marriage). They play college sweethearts who end up unhappy in marriage (and lest you feel sorry for him, he cheats too). They have a precocious young daughter, played by Two Weeks’s too-adorable-for-words Lee Chae-mi. D’aw, you can’t cast her and expect me not to root for her to get a happy family. Sigh, parents and their messed-up love lives.

Warm Words premieres December 2.

Via SBS E!

While I do like some of the actors/actresses in this, not sure that I am quite ready for yet another totally dysfunctional family with mistresses and betrayal all over the place.

By god, that JJH is a handsome man.

A gorgeous cast doing nefarious things to each other?

Only if they go FULL unapologetic makjang will this work.
I don't want to see the cheater suffer with guilt, but GO BIG with the sinning.
What was Luther said? "Be a sinner and sin boldly..."

I am looking at YOU LSW.

JJH is my no 1 ajushi crush ever since Dae Jang Geum but in that first photo, he looks like a younger version of actor Jung Dong Hwan aka Kim Tan's Dad..

so i guess we'll have a rough idea how he'll look like in another 20 years or so? sans grandpa sweater ofcourse

Looking good, Ji Jin Hee. But this drama is not for me. Not here for that mega angst and betrayal. That kind of thing sends my blood pressure up. I hope it will do well for JJH though.

I love everyone, but I just CAN'T get on board with the premise. No, just… no. I'd be crushed if I ended up hating any of these actors and I'm pretty sure that's what would happen if I watched.

JJH you are HOT guy!! LSW you another HOT guy!!! However, it is cheating and makjang. I am not so sure to watch it. I will watch the first two episode to see if it is any good to continue watching it or stopped watching it.

I'm not watching any Mon-Tues drama right now, since Good Doctor ends. So i might give this one out a try because of the actors and actresses in it though i am not sure if i'll like it since the PD is Five Fingers PD and i don't like that drama. I don't even know the writer, what else if his/her other drama since i haven't watch the one mention.

But anyway i'll watch the first 2 episodes then decide later on whether to continue watching it or not. I hope it is good though.

I was expecting this to be on the lighter side when I heard it wa from the writer of Can We Get Married.
But on a lighter note, there's Lee Sang-woo!!

Because of Goddess of Marriage, I tense up whenever I see Lee Sang Woo, because his character was such a torture there. I'm not sure this drama will cure my trauma!

I'm not too invested in the plot. Dramas that are too messy and complicated stress me out even more. But I will definitely check out because of Ji Jin Hee. He's too handsome.

I read the word Marriage and danced from excitement! I thought it's somehow marriage contract or stuff like that! I'm loving such dramas! if anyone knows some good drama about marriage contract please suggest.. Just done with sweet 18 which basically made me fall in love again with marriage contract dramas LOL! I've seen many dramas like that but I can't come up with anything now!

I will watch this drama because of my idol JI JIN HEE, and by reading on the storyline, we believe that this must be a very good and quality romantic drama to follow with, unfortunately it maybe very sad for I think the end will be a little bit of tragedy of the family, a separation or divorce. Looking forward on this. Thanks for the update!

On ep 3 now. Surprisingly it's better than I expected. Especially Lee San woo's acting - very much improved compared to his former more stiff and wooden expressions. Have liked him since first saw him in feast of gods. Now he has upped his acting skills :)
