Song Ji-hyo to cheat on Lee Seon-kyun in This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair
Running Man Ace Song Ji-hyo (Ex-girlfriend Club) is coming back to dramaland! She’ll be starring in JTBC’s upcoming weekend drama called This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair as the titular wife. Her onscreen husband will be played by *drumroll please* Lee Seon-kyun (Miss Korea), and both leading actors have been confirmed for the project. Double score!
Based on a Japanese drama by the same name, This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair (Konshu Tsuma ga Uwaki Shimasu) is about a man who realizes his wife is on the verge of committing adultery. Afraid that his friends and family might find out, he proceeds to go online and post his worries and frustrations on a Cheated Spouses Anonymous community forum. This is a role that I can totally see Lee Seon-kyun in — a beta male who frets over his wife’s potential affair. It’s supposed to be a “comic healing” drama, so hopefully our couple ends up happy.
Also on the confirmed cast list for This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair are Yeh Ji-won (Oh Hae-young Again), who will appear as Lee Seon-kyun’s best friend’s wife, and BoA (Anticipate Love), who will play a writer at a broadcasting station. Lee Sang-yub (Master–God of Noodle) and Kim Hee-won (Let’s Eat 2) are also said to be in the drama, but their character synopses have not been revealed. Please, oh please, don’t let Lee Sang-yub have another tragic story arc… I don’t think I could take it after Master–God of Noodle and Doctors.
This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair will be a Friday-Saturday drama premiering in October after Fantastic, which is the JTBC drama that follows currently-airing Age of Youth.
