Kim Jung-eun, Choi Won-young, Choi Yoo-hwa
MBN has a new drama in the works called My Dangerous Wife, and casting has been confirmed for Choi Won-young (Mystic Pop-up Bar), Kim Jung-eun (Duel), and Choi Yoo-hwa (Class of Lies).
The story is centered around a couple who initially married for love, but now are just going through the motions and doing the bare minimum to maintain their married life. Although marriage had once seemed safe and secure, a frightening realization has now set in — they’ve been living with their most dangerous enemy and are now at war. Through this conflict, the drama aims to take a deeper look at marriage and relationships, and explores what it means to fail or succeed within these contexts.
Kim Jung-eun plays one half of the central couple, wife Shim Jae-kyung. She seems to have it all: she’s beautiful, intelligent, kind and she’s also a very talented and competent career woman. Her dream had simply been to live happily in love with her husband for the rest of their lives, as promised in their wedding vows. But she suddenly becomes embroiled in a mysterious kidnapping incident, creating trauma for everyone around her.
Choi Won-young plays husband Kim Yoon-chul, a successful celebrity chef with good looks, wealth, and a cheerful personality. Together with his wife, they were the image of a perfect couple when they first got married. Fast forward 6 years; their relationship is now in a rut. Struggling with feelings of dread about his home life, he finds refuge in his work and puts all of his heart and soul into his career.
Choi Yoo-hwa takes on the character Jin Sun-mi, who works at Choi Won-young’s Italian restaurant and is said to have a special relationship with him. Having struggled with poverty and many different challenges while growing up, she developed a tough personality and a strong sense of self-preservation. In order to achieve her goals and get what she wants, she’s willing to use any means and do whatever it takes.
Written by Hwang Da-eun (Buam-dong Revenge Club) and directed by PD Lee Hyung-min (Chocolate, Strong Woman Do Bong-soon), MBN’s My Dangerous Wife is currently being planned to air this coming September.
