Perfect Wife Go So-young and her not-so-perfect husband Yoon Sang-hyun
It’s time to check in with mystery-comedy Perfect Wife, the new KBS drama centered around an ordinary housewife, Shim Jae-bok, played by Go So-young(Beat, Gumiho). Shim Jae-bok is the ultimate ajumma who lives for her two children and her indecisive husband, who seems more like a third child than a life partner at times. But as she finds herself immersed in her renewed career and the strange incident that comes her way, she rediscovers the cheerful optimistic woman that was inside her all along.
The Perfect Wife’s husband, played by Yoon Sang-hyun (Shopping King Louis), seems cowardly and petty to others, but he is actually a genuinely nice family man. The actor said about working with Go So-young, who has been on hiatus for over ten years, “In real life, she has a refreshingly direct and cute personality. It’s been comfortable working with her because she’s so considerate.”
Sung Joon (Madame Antoine) plays an attractive lawyer who has ambitious dreams of marrying a rich girl. He seems aggressive on the outside, but he’s actually a sensitive soul with many inner scars. If a woman comes from an affluent family with thousands of acres in her name, he doesn’t care if she’s divorced or if she has children — he’d still marry her. When he’s with wealthy cougars, he’ll even tap into an aegyo act that noonas seem to prefer. However, after a series of events, he begins to develop feelings for Shim Jae-bok, who’s just a temp worker.
In the still cuts, Jo Yeo-jung (Babysitter) is innocent loveliness personified as she plays her character, a woman who has everything: beauty, wealth, and even a great personality. As the owner of a building in Seoul, she has the financial freedom and independence to do as she pleases, which is a complete contrast to Shim Jae-bok’s situation. When the two opposites meet, they become more involved in the mysterious happenings that changes their lives.
KBS plans to broadcast Monday-Tuesday drama Perfect Wife starting February 27.
