The three ajumma musketeers for Go So-young’s Perfect Wife


Kim Jung-nan, Go So-young, Jung Soo-young

Ajumma bestie trio Go So-young (Beat, Gumiho), Kim Jung-nan (Fantastic), and Jung Soo-young (Second to Last Love) in KBS’s upcoming drama Perfect Wife is a group of friends I’d like to have when I’m forty. Through thick and thin, they’ve stayed loyal friends since junior high, despite the divergent life paths they’ve led. The first official teaser is also out, showing us an inside look at the daily life of the ordinary housewife heroine Shim Jae-bok, played by Go So-young.

Although her name means luck, Shim Jae-bok’s life hasn’t been filled with much of it. Her career never took off, and she’s still working as a part-time probationary employee, while her bumbling husband, played by Yoon Sang-hyun (Shopping King Louis), keeps causing trouble. The housewife comedy drama will tell the story of how she rediscovers her identity, not just a wife or a mother of two but as a person, when she becomes involved in a strange mysterious occurrence.

Even though she hasn’t had much luck with life’s curveballs, thankfully, Shim Jae-bok has two great friends, who are her best support network for everything, whether her kids need to be picked up or she needs to be bailed for a traffic ticket. Kim Jung-nan plays a hot pilates instructor constantly engaged in torrid love affairs, and Jung Soo-young plays a psychology professor enamored by her own brilliance.

In the teaser, Go So-young poses like a goddess amidst flying golden confetti. Suddenly, the scene changes to her chasing down a woman, while the caption reads, “World’s best ajumma.” She proceeds to mercilessly KO her husband, while he pleads for forgiveness. (Perhaps he cheated on Go So-young with the runaway woman?)

But during work, she tries to be a pacifying influence when an irate client comes in, until the client punches her nose, drawing blood. The last scene shows Shim Jae-bok attempting to entice her husband, whose back is turned and his face is cringing. Hurt, she asks, “You hate doing it with me that much?” and retreats with a disappointed expression.

Perfect Wife will premiere starting February 27, after currently airing KBS drama Hwarang ends it run.

I'm ready for this one. It looks cute, but still real, and I love the actresses and actors involved. If it's anything like it's trailer (please show, please like your trailer) I think I'm really going to enjoy it!

The trio of besties reminds me of the line from the movie Stand By Me “I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was 12. Jesus, does anyone?” My best friends are also from middle school. There is nothing like friends who are there through thick and thin and know the best and worst of you. This looks like a lovely show with a nice cast. Excited.

Same here. The other day I was wondering why I didn't make real friendships in university whereas I was still getting along with a friend from middle school and a two friends from high school. I think growing up together, facing teenage hardship together can make very strong bonds between people.

Hahaha I do.
My closest friends are from university. The friends I had at 12 are still 'friends' in a sense - we catch up when we are in the same town once every two or three years and it's fun. But it's obvious that we've become very different people.

The friends I had in middle school and high school played a big role in shaping how I am today, yet for some reason I don't really talk to them at much anymore. We are still friends and we make plans to hang out all the time, but we have sort of drifted apart. I think it's because we are all different people now. While the friends I made at Uni are like family to me. I guess it's because I met them when I knew who I was.
