So many niggling questions as well as some funny moments from Episode 2. We’re left wondering if Jung Hee is really having an affair with his colleague Na Mi or could there be more than meets the eye concerning their relationship? What then were all their clandestine meeting, hugging and smooching and implication of their secret love nest ? But just a wild guess, perhaps Jung Hee is helping her in some way which has something to do with her sick mum? And what secret transaction and mission is Na Mi being paid to carry out …. perhaps related to Jung Hee?
Who is that weird lady Lee Eun Hee (Jo Yeo Jeong) and why is she trying so hard to get Jae Bok to move into her house? Hopefully she’s not some psycho who wants to get her hands on the kids.

Since this is only the 2nd episode out of a total of 20,  I guess we will not be getting all the answers so soon. Can’t help wondering though what’s really between Jung Hee and Na Mi.

‘Perfect Wife’ Episode 1 (2017-02-27)

Episode 1     3.9%
Having watched the first episode of ‘Perfect Wife’ yesterday, my impression could be summed up in the saying ‘it never rains but it pours’ for the female lead Shim Jae Bok (Go So Young). As if losing her job is not bad enough, she finds out that hubby Jung Hee (Sang Hyun) is merrily having an affair with his female colleague Jeong Na Mi (Im Se Mi).
My personal views:
Frankly I do not like Sang Hyun to play such a character even though its purpose is to pile on misery for wife Jae Bok …… being meek and unfaithful. For a change, I would like Sang Hyun to take on the role of a baddie or villain with a strong presence as in some Korean movies I’ve watched and which had left a memorable impression … such as Lee Jun Jae (2015 movie Assassination) and Jung Woo Sung (2013 movie Cold Eyes). A big no-no for me are roles of unfaithful husbands and those who abuse women and children. Perhaps Jung Hee will undergo a transformation later but right now I do not approve of his character.
Update: Having re-watched the subbed episode, it strikes me that a possible reason why Jung Hee had turned to another woman is because he feels he’s always making Jae Bok disappointed and thinks she does not need him?

Transformed into a doctor
My guess is this hairstyle is for Sang Hyun’s cameo appearance in episode 8 of the JTBC fantasy romance drama ‘Strong Woman Do Bong Soon’ which stars Park Bo Young. At first glance, I did not quite like the too curly hair but he does remind me of Beethoven and Harry Potter.
