Character posters for Matrimonial Chaos with Cha Tae-hyun, Bae Doo-na
Matrimonial Chaos (aka Best Divorce) posters are out! Cha Tae-hyun (Along with the Gods) and Bae Doo-na (Forest of Secrets) star in this upcoming KBS drama that explores whether marriage is truly the completion of love. Lee El (Hwayugi) and Sohn Seok-gu (Mother) will be joining Cha and Bae to form two couples who have vastly different backgrounds and issues.
This rom-com drama is supposed to delve into how gender difference influences our thoughts about love, marriage, and family. The most recent posters show the characters individually, and highlight their personalities. In the first poster, Cha Tae-hyun strums the guitar, completely absorbed in his music. For the drama, he’ll play a man with a detailed, sensitive personality who would rather be alone than be with others.
On the couch eating sweet potato, Bae Doo-na plays his ex-wife who is described as a laid-back and positive woman (so I wonder why they broke up?). Then Lee El plays Cha’s first love, a charming woman who arouses others’ protective instincts. She is going through marital issues of her own with her husband Sohn Seok-gu, a man with a devilish charisma and an attractive aura.
Second-chance love and reconciliation stories normally aren’t my cup of tea, but I can’t stop drooling at the cast list. Bae Doo-na is a recognized acting powerhouse, and I’ve loved Lee El since Liar Game. Sohn Seok-gu made such a strong impression on me during Mother that I still can’t quite get rid of the creepy vibes I feel from him looking at this harmless poster of him drinking coffee. Cha may actually be my least favorite of the group, but I’ve had a soft spot in my heart for him from 1N2D and he’s a comedy pro, so I can see him bringing the laughter to a somewhat unhappy set of complex relationships.
KBS Monday-Tuesday drama Matrimonial Chaos, directed by Yoo Hyun-ki (Unkind Women, My Daughter Seo-young, God of Study) and written by Moon Jung-min, will begin next week on October 8.
