His scandal, her story in tvN’s The Good Wife

Here’s our first moody, enigmatic peek at tvN’s remake of The Good Wife, the American legal and political drama about a woman who returns to her law career when her husband goes to prison for a messy public scandal. It’s a great premise and a successful series that’s been on the air for seven seasons on CBS, and the Korean remake is also the project that’s bringing Chungmuro A-lister Jeon Do-yeon (The Shameless) back to dramaland.

Jeon stars as the wife of a prosecutor, played by Yoo Ji-tae (Healer), who gets embroiled in a corruption scandal and goes to prison. In order to provide for her family, she has to return to work after being a stay-at-home mom for thirteen years, and gets a job at a law firm run by her friend, played by Yoon Kye-sang (Last).

Kim Seo-hyung (Assembly) has been cast as Yoon Kye-sang’s co-CEO at the law firm; After School’s Nana will play Jeon Do-yeon’s assistant, and Lee Won-geun (Sassy Go Go) will be Jeon’s fresh-out-of-law-school rival at the firm. Kim Tae-woo (Goodbye Mr. Black) plays the lead prosecutor working on Yoo Ji-tae’s case, and Jeon Seok-ho (Misaeng) plays a fellow prosecutor.

The first three character teasers are just tiny snippets of each of the main characters, but already it looks mysterious and stylish. Jeon Do-yeon’s teaser alludes to her suddenly being thrown in the public eye because of her husband’s scandal, and she says in voiceover: “I’m going to find it, not for you, but for me.” Yoo Ji-tae says, “Trust me. I’ve fallen into a trap.” Even though I’m thinking he doesn’t look very trustworthy in his teaser. And Yoon Kye-sang seems to be directing his voiceover at Jeon Do-yeon when he says, “I chose you, because you’ll do anything to win.” All three teasers end with the tagline: “His scandal, her story. The Good Wife.”

Okay, I’m pretty excited to know her story, or maybe just to see these actors go toe-to-toe. The Good Wife will air on Fridays and Saturdays following Dear My Friends, and premieres July 8.

If I didn't know better I'd have thought that Good Wife is the name of a perfume. These teasers really look like commercials lol.

You're right-- they definitely have that product-ad feel to them. And if I didn't know any better, I'd assume they were selling something called "Good Wipe"-- like maybe a very sultry-smelling furniture-polish wipe?

It really sounds like "Good Wipe" LOL...she keeps clutching at the covers in the teasers, and there's a pair of creepy disembodied hands clawing at the guy's suit in the other teaser...gasp! could Good Wipe the furniture polish double as a fabric softener as well?

Definitely on my watch list, this one! First, I love me a sexy perfume ad. Second, no matter what we'll be served, this'll sure to be one great dish of acting talent.

i always wonder with countries with their own letter like korea, japan, china, thai etc..
they can actually speak english well, their pronounciation is usually just like english speaker, but why for this kind of things its sounds off? are they read it in their letter? (like hangul in this case)

some English letters are not differentiated in their alphabet. Like V, P, F, L, R etc. So yes they're using their own pronunciation. The different sounds that come with English letters do NOT come naturally for them so that's why it effects their pronunciation.

I think they are just reading it in korean. The title in Hangul is 굿 와이프, so when you romanise it, it becomes 'gut wa-i-peu' (which is literally Good Wife)

This reminds me of 'City hunter' all over which sounded like (and wrote in Korean as) 'Shitty hunter'.

Ohmaygawd...how on earth they can assemble such AMAZING casts? I really hope the story can live up its hype otherwise you will wasted those stellar casts. I missed YJT in my screen, last time I saw him on tv was on Healer. And after years in Chungmuro, JDY make her comeback in small screen....yay!! Can't wait!

as someone who enjoyed the US version alot. I am tentatively excited. the actors seem great altho i hope the tone isnt quite as somber/heavy as the teasers imply.
My concern is, if it'll keep some of the american version's wry sense of humor. (it could be very funny at times!) and more importantly still, the fantastic courtroom scenes!

The thing is the original show was written by a couple of retired lawyers, and it showed. so I hope that Good Wife SK has a few law/legal consultants for the show so it can at least be half as gripping when it comes to the courtroom showdowns. (not to mention the more hilarious court cases that showed off just how arcane and obscure some of the legal practices on our books are.)

the show was also pretty openly feminist too, but i feel like if they just follow the trajectory set by the premise it should be fine. (altho alas i doubt they'll have anyone in the show as charismatic as the original Diane Lockheart was. and not cause SK is lacking in charismatic older female actresses. *looks longingly at Kim Mi-Kyung*)
No matter how it goes down tho I will say this for the drama: Yoon Kye Sang is 100x better looking than the dude playing his role in the US version. aka Big Nose mcgee lol.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one to crack up when Yoo Ji-tae spoke so sincerely about his need for a "Good Wipe." Particularly since he was sitting down in his Chaebol chair and concentrating so intensely when he said it.

Thank goodness Jeon Do-yeon was determinedly moving in his directly, like any wife taking care of her husbanded, trapped on the throne without any Good Wipe in easy reach.
