Yoon Sang-hyun in talks to play Perfect Wife’s husband for KBS
Actor Yoon Sang-hyun (Shopping King Louis) has received the offer to play the male lead role in KBS’s new drama Perfect Wife, a project that actresses Go So-young (Beat, Gumiho) and Jo Yeo-jung (Babysitter) are still considering. Veteran actress Yoon Yeo-jung (Dear My Friends) is also in talks to appear.
Perfect Wife is the story of a tough ajumma with honest instincts who confronts life with boldness. No castings have been confirmed as of yet, but should Go So-young confirm, she would take on the main titular role as Shim Jae-bok, a wife and mother of two kids who endures numerous hardships in her life. She gets swept up in an unforeseen event, and in the process, recovers her sense of femininity and finds new hope and love.
Yoon Sang-hyun is up for the role of Shim Jae-bok’s husband, Goo Jung-hee. He’s an immensely gentle and obedient family man and the sales head of a construction materials company by trade. But he’s also quite the gullible scaredy cat. Once or twice a year, he’ll have a burst of crazy and cause a ridiculous accident, which gets him a scolding from his wife. He wants to be a lover of all women so he’ll accept any woman who approaches him and won’t keep her from leaving him either. This behavior, however, always goes to crap. Surprise, surprise.
I liked Yoon Sang-hyun as the grumbly curmudgeon in Shopping King Louis and can picture him in this zany husband role which already sounds like a hoot.
Perfect Wife will air on Mondays and Tuesdays and is expected to premiere in February 2017 after Hwarang ends its run.
