I think its safe to assume that most people tuning in for the upcoming SBS weekend drama Goddess of Marriage is interested in the main love triangle of Kim Ji Hoon, Nam Sang Mi, and Lee Sang Woo. I don’t blame them, the more I see of the other three couples in the drama the less I’m keen on spending time with such distressing marital strife situations. Apparently there are two cheating husbands in this mix – Jang Hyun Sung plays a supposed good-looking news anchor who has an affair with his hot sexy co-anchor played by Clara because his wife is this dowdy meek thing played by Jang Yung Nam, while Kim Jung Tae cheats on his perfect trophy wife Lee Tae Ran apparently because he can and she’ll just keep putting up with it because she married into money. The two sisters played by Nam Sang Mi and Jo Min Soo have their own conundrum – Nam Sang Mi has been dating Kim Ji Hoon for a long time but on a trip to Jeju she meets a guy who might be her soulmate due to their immediate sparks played by Lee Sang Woo and she cheats with him but returns to Seoul still prepared to marry her boyfriend, while Jo Min Soo is trying to be superwoman with a job and three kids with a husband played by Kwon Hae Hyo who isn’t much help in either side. Judging by the long preview Lee Sang Woo gets significantly more screen time than Kim Ji Hoon but I’m not certain that’s any indicator of which guy gets the girl in a long drama like this. Though I’m not loving either of the three leads all that much right now – Kim Ji Hoon seems like a controlling prick what with the grabbing and yelling, and Lee Sang Woo carrying Nam Sang Mi over his shoulders like a sack of potatoes is such a caveman thing to do not to mention if he knows she’s got a boyfriend and they still sleep together than both need to take some accountability for that, and Nam Sang Mi ought to break up with Kim Ji Hoon first before hopping into bed with a admittedly sexy hot thing like Lee Sang Woo. Yikes, I hope this one doesn’t drive me away with terrible characters right off the bat.
