[Orion's Daily Ramblings] Things Turn Violent in Latest "Familiar Wife" Stills

2018/07/16 | 1192 views | Permalink

I can't count the times when domestic abuse is presented as comedic, or worse, romantic in Korean drama, but I hope that "Familiar Wife" will be going for a more down to Earth approach in its universe-bending story. Ji Sung and Han Ji-min's couple has seen better, and less abusive days.

Ji Sung plays Cha Joo-hyeok, a man who gets grief from his wife at home, and from his boss at work. Han Ji-min becomes Seo  Woo-jin, a working mom who is busy at work and at home. I can definitely see how the pressures of daily life they are both under would turn this marriage sour, especially if the two don't mutually support each other and communicate their problems adequately.

In these latest stills, Woo-jin seems to have thrown something at her husband, who seems rightfully confused about the whole thing. I do hope that this dysfunctional marriage is not played up for laughs too much, especially now that abuse is on the table. Ideally, Joo-hyeok's supernaturally fueled, fate-altering choice would also help him find ways to address his current life, rather than provide a supernatural escape to another one.

I hope that this couple finds ways to heal and grow by the end of it all, so if the journey looks fun, I'll be joining them on it, starting August 1st on tvN.
