My Wife is Married

The film, <My Wife is Married>, has a rather unconventional story, and some scenes were even regarded as unsuitable for teenagers and younger children. The film is based on a best-selling novel of the same name and tells the story of a wife who decides to get married a second time, ignoring the fact that she is already married! The movie features realistic and refreshing characters, and actress Son Ye-jin is the center of attention. Son Ye-jin’s bouncy charm shines throughout the movie and creates a lighthearted atmosphere, offsetting the seriousness of the storyline. Son Ye-jin’s innocence and sexiness is well complimented by a passionate performance from heartthrob actor Kim Ju-Hyeok.

However, Deok-hun discovers they have a common interest in soccer, and he asks her out on the date of his lifetime. But dating the free spirited In-ah is not easy, and Deok-hun spends most of his waiting for her phone calls.
