Song Ji-hyo as a world-class supermom in This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair

I’m already amused by the character descriptions for JTBC’s new comedy This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair: Lee Seon-kyun (Miss Korea) stars as a hapless beta husband who can’t even confront his successful alpha wife that he suspects she’s having an affair. So instead of dealing with it head-on, he turns to the internet (naturally) to seek help on how to save his marriage. Song Ji-hyo (Ex-Girlfriend Club) plays the titular wife who’s perfect in almost every way, but may step out on her husband. He’s got three days to stop her, no backbone to confront her, but a lot of internet advice. What could possibly go wrong?

I like that Song Ji-hyo is trying on a different sort of character in this drama, as a polished career woman who’s got it all together. Her character is a successful, well-paid team leader at a graphic design firm, a supermom, and a beloved wife of eight years. She’s never once made a face at her in-laws who barge into her home whenever they please, and her husband loves her unconditionally and has complete faith in her. Well, maybe he did

Lee Seon-kyun plays her husband who had dreams of becoming a movie director, but ended up a PD of an outsourcing production company. His current project is a low-rated TV show introducing new movies, and his only real source of pride in life is his wife. He starts out a marriage devotee, but then he discovers that his wife is about to have an affair, and after worrying himself sick about it, he turns to the internet for help.

BoA (Anticipating Romance) and Lee Sang-yub (Masterโ€”God of Noodle) play a writer-PD couple, each dealing with marriages in their past and present. And Kim Hee-won (Awl) and Yeh Ji-won (Oh Hae-young Again) play a divorce attorney who cheats on his wife, and the wife who acts naive but is hiding her claws.

The show promises to weave together the three couples’ stories about contemporary marriage in a comedic, upbeat way. On paper the plot sounds like serious business, but I trust Lee Seon-kyun to make his character’s betrayal and anger somehow pitiful in the most hilarious way possible.

This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair follows Fantastic on Fridays and Saturdays beginning in October.

Pffft why is just the imagination of Lee Seon-kyun playing a beta husband already cracking me up so much. This is going to be hilarious. And I expect Kim Hee-won and Yeh Ji-won to be the ultimate scene stealers in here.

In that movie he is a husband absolutely intimidated by his fast-talking wife. Instead of trying to save his marriage he turns to a neighborhood cassanova to woo his wife away from him. Similar but also very different.

Girlfriday, I knew you would just die to see LSK as this kind of a beta male. LOL. I myself am conflicted. I kinda miss his alpha side, ala Chef in Pasta.

I also love Song Jihyo but she's pretty inconsistent for me as an actress. I hope she does well in this one though. :)

Yeh Ji Won is a favorite of mine. She was perfect as the noona in 'Another Oh Hae Young', utterly believable as a lonely, Type A alcoholic. I'll look forward to this.

"...a lot of internet advice. What could possibly go wrong?...".

Let me count the ways. Never mind, nobody but a computer could count that high. I assume this is the same internet that recommends you jump onto a cactus to fix your inner chakra.

Song Ji Hyo is so beautiful. She was my first girl crush. I mean who wouldn't love an actress who doesn't care too much about her looks, is totally badass and can't dance to save a life :P I don't think she is an awesome actor, but being a RM fan- loyalty will make me watch anything with her in it. Plus, Mr. Barritone is as usual gonna rock it and I loves Lee Sang Yub.

Looking forward to the show :)

I can't wait for ths drama, and to see Song Ji Hyo again. I love this actress to death, she is drop dead gorgeous, one of the most beautiful korean actresses and really talented actress and soo charming, she would make me watch anything, but for some reason the dramas and movies she chooses always end up making me excited because they fit my taste!
