Soon ….

Related news: http://tenasia.hankyung.com/archives/1200927
Sang Hyun and Maybee must be so excited as they are expecting their second child at the end of this month. According to the staff from their agency MGB, the expected due date is end of May. The precise date is unknown but as their first child had arrived earlier than expected, would it happen again this time? 
It seems currently Sang Hyun and Maybee are at the hospital. Since he has a concert in Japan this Friday, he would probably feel more at ease knowing she’s well taken care of. 
Dear Sang Hyun, have a safe trip and enjoy the concert. We look forward to meeting your little one soon.

‘Perfect Wife’ – My Thoughts

I had mixed feelings as I followed this drama over the past 10 weeks …. with unease mixed with hope, but mostly with disappointment. Though the acting from all the actors were great, I could not enjoy the drama because there was too much negativity on a single lead character. If Jung Hee had been played by another actor, I would not have continued watching beyond the initial episodes. 
I thought the title is misleading as there is no perfect character, let alone a perfect wife. I would think the title ‘Perfect Psycho’ would be more apt. Jo Yeo Jeong is good in playing a convincing psychotic stalker though Eun Hee’s obsession had become tiresome over 20 episodes. It might have been better to keep this drama to the usual 16 episodes. The character central to this drama should be Jae Bok but it seems to me that Eun Hee has become the core character as she is the cause of everything that the others respond to. If I were to rate the 4 main characters in order of significance, it would be Eun Hee, Jung Hee, Jae Bok and Bong Gu. 
Over the course of this drama, Jung Hee had undergone various changes but there is hardly any positive attributes to his character …. he is timid, indecisive, lacks respect, cheats on his wife, greedy for success, easily manipulated and finally resigned to his fate. Not only was he traumatized in the past but he continues to be tormented in the present. His wife has no regard for him and does not display any warmth towards him which makes me wonder why she had married him in the first place. He is just leading a miserable life.
Jae Bok is strong and self-reliant. She is constantly angry with Jung Hee and feels that he can’t do anything right. The few times she had shown her concern for him was always for the children’s sake. The impression I get is that she does not want anything to happen to him because he is their father and not because she loves him. They would probably be better off as friends than husband and wife. Though I had hope that they will reconcile in the end, I do think they would be happier going their separate ways.
I love the other characters who brings much needed humour to an otherwise dark drama ….. Jae Bok’s best pals Hye Ran and Won Jae, Sam Kyu and the kids, especially Hye Wok. To all the casts, well done.
Though I am disappointed in Sang Hyun’s character in this drama, I love his acting. As his character changes, so did my emotions. Jung Hee might make me angry and disappointed but his sadness cuts deep especially in the final 2 episodes.
To script writer Yoon, I do not like your biased characterization. Eun Hee’s obsession went on much too long for 20 episodes, so much so that it was becoming irritating. Jung Hee might have his flaws but don’t persecute his character to such an extent. The ‘happy’ ending for him came too late and too little, only in the last few minutes as if it’s merely a consolation. There is no perfect character contrary to what the title suggests. Is this drama about Jae Bok or Eun Hee?
Dear Sang Hyun, I hope to see you in a more engaging drama soon. Even in a role as a villain, I hope to see a much stronger character.

Jung Hee seems resigned to his ill-fated destiny with Eun Hee, believing that his death is the only alternative to stop the cycle of madness. If it means having to pay the ultimate price in order to keep his family safe, then so be it. This episode is totally making my heart bleed.
The children miss their father and turns up at the office to see him. Eun Hee’s appearance at that moment puts Jung Hee in a dilemma. Even though he misses his kids terribly, he knows they would be at risk if Eun Hee were to see them as a threat to her.  He admonishes them for coming here and quickly bundles them out.  
Jung Hee feels bad for being harsh with the children but could only explain his reprimand as not wanting them to turn up at his work place. He wants them to know how much he loves them.


Jae Bok is aware that Jung Hee’s intention is to protect the family but does not want him to continue putting himself at risk to Eun Hee’s madness. She believes the evidence related to Na Mi’s murder is still in Eun Hee’s possession and hopes that he will be able to find it in her house.
From his mum’s remark about the messy condition of Eun Hee’s fridge which is unusual for her neat-freak personality, Jung Hee gets a hunch to check it out. Sure enough, he finds Na Mi’s missing phone and the pair of shoes Eun Hee had worn on the night Na Mi died.

Eun Hee had proposed that they conduct a private wedding ceremony at home, with just the 2 of them. Though Jung Hee seems resigned to going through with it, he is aware that their wedding day is his death sentence.
Jung Hee is assured of Bong Gu’s sincerity towards Jae Bok and that he would also be a good father to his children. Perhaps this assurance helps to strengthen his resolve to accept his fate.
Knowing that time is running out for him, Jung Hee decides to spend some time with Jin Wok and Hye Wok for what he believes would be their last time together.

A tender gaze that says so much.

Bong Gu is aware of Jae Bok’s inner turmoil but he is hopeful that she will give their relationship a chance. He finally gets his wish.

Jae Bok realizes that the package left outside their office is the evidence they were looking for and Jung Hee must have sent it to them.

Jung Hee is getting ready for his date with death. He calls Jae Bok to apologize once again for everything he has done and to confess how much he has always loved her. Knowing that Bong Gu is there for her now, he hopes she will be happy. 

His parting words sound so ominous that Jae Bok senses that something is amiss. She urgently tells Bong Gu to meet her at Eun Hee’s house. 
Eun Hee is aware of Jung Hee’s real intention as she had read the diary in his office. She knows too that he does not love her but insists that they go through with their private wedding ceremony. Since she will never set him free, marrying him will ensure that he is forever hers, even in death.

Though expecting the wine to be poisoned, Jung Hee does not hesitate to drink it. He is certain that she will follow him and it is the only way to stop her madness.

Jung Hee wakes up in the secret room at the basement and finds himself tied to a chair. He is horrified to see Jae Bok there, similarly trussed up. While Bong Gu has been knocked unconcious by Eun Hee’s henchman and tied up somewhere in the house, she has Jae Bok here to torment him.

As Eun Hee takes the wedding vow for both herself and Jung Hee, he spits out how much he loathes and despises her.
Jung Hee looks on helplessly as Eun Hee tries to force Jae Bok to drink what is probably poisoned wine.
He screams for her to stop it but his concern for Jae Bok only serves to infuriate her. Thankfully Jae Bok manages to push her away.

Even if Jae Bok is not there, it is Eun Hee’s intention to die with Jung Hee. To their horror, she sets the surrounding items on fire so that they can all perish together.
Jung Hee is losing consciousness due to the heavy smoke. As Eun Hee approaches with the candelabra, Jae Bok kicks out causing Eun Hee to fall and gets knock out from hitting her head against the wall. Jae Bok frees herself and frantically tries to untie Jung Hee.
Fortunately Bong Gu has freed himself and rushes down to the basement to help bring out an unconscious Jung Hee. Not wanting to leave Eun Hee behind, Jae Bok tries to rouse her and realized too late that Eun Hee has no intention of letting her leave. 

The flames are getting more intense and seeing that the ceiling beam is in danger of collapse, Bong Gu pulls Jae Bok away in the nick of time. They had to run out as the fire is beyond control.

Eun Hee makes no attempt to escape as it’s probably her death wish anyway.

The whole house is engulfed in flames but thankfully they are safe.
I wonder if the filming crew really built a set for this scene or is it digitally enhanced.
If it’s a prop, it’s probably a fake facade but the heat must have been intense. 
Fast forward to a year later, Jae Bok seems to be doing well as she celebrates the purchase of a new house. 

Jung Hee too has settled down well, doing what he loves.  

Now that their nightmare is finally over, they can look forward to a future without fear.
The end.
