Teasers, Posters & Stills For Upcoming Contract Marriage Drama “My Husband Oh Jak Doo”

First it was Because This is My First Life and now this. I guess contract marriage dramas are making a comeback.

My Husband Oh Jak Doo is an  upcoming MBC drama starring Uee and Kim Kang Woo. Here’s the synopsis from AsianWiki:

Han Seung-Joo (Uee) is a single woman in her mid 30’s and she works as a PD at a broadcasting station. She does well at her job, but she is not nearly as good when it comes to housework. Han Seung-Joo has a hard time dealing with social prejudices about single women. To get the position of a “married woman,” Han Seung-Joo marries Oh Jak-Doo (Kim Kang-Woo) who lives in the mountain. Their marriage is not based on love, but their relationship develops romantically.

I still think of Uee as that pest from You’re Beautiful but this is a good reminder of how much time has passed because wow, she’s already hitting 30.

Anyway, if done well, this could be a good study of how some in society place more value on one’s marital status than their individual career successes.

Here are the teasers:



My Husband Oh Jak Doo premieres on March 3rd on MBC.  It will be 2 hour-long episodes each Saturday.

    Uee has certainly changed a lot since the You’re Beautiful days haha She has definitely established herself as an always growing and capable actress. In Marriage Contract in particular she was excellent – her crying scenes in that were so heartbreaking and real. Definitely recommend! 🙂 Am looking forward to a fun one for her, and one that is hopefully much better overall than the last one.

    I never liked her…..until Marriage Contract made me eat my words! Her performance there was truly amazing…but that whole drama was full of stellar performances. Highly Highly recommend watching it if you haven’t. I just finished watching it for the 4th time.

    Uee looks so much better with few pounds on, at some point she looked like she could break in two!
