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.
