One of the reasons I know Prime Minister and I has hooked me good and garnered my full attention is that I’m interested in all aspects of the OTP relationship development. Of course the skinship (and there must be copious amounts of it) is a top priority, but I’m also just as invested in them becoming a functional married couple in the ways that matter to their lives. Da Jung needs someone who will help her take care of her father in the last months he has left, and Dad is a hoot who is probably going to keep an eagle eye on how his Kwon son-in-law treats his beloved Da Jung. The contract marriage can be a mutually beneficial arrangement entered into by Yul and Da Jung, but I see both of them being sincere to the family members who are unaware and thinking they are really married. Yul will probably be very solicitous of Dad’s demands on him being a good husband, just as Da Jung is going to throw herself into being a good step-mom. Da Jung may be too young, too experienced in the social niceties of political wives, and too artless to don a mantle of superciliousness, but her lackings to be the Prime Minister’s wife does not mean she’s equally as unprepared to be the step-mom to Yul’s kids. I think she’s going to be an awesome step-mom all around even if she does trip up slightly in the beginning.
New stills are out for episode 5 showing Man Se dressed like a Christmas outfit and performing at his kindergarten play, Yul is in the audience watching him as are Man Se’s two siblings Woo Ri and Na Ra, and Da Jung is also ushering in Christmas by decorating the tree in the mansion. I’ve loving how this episode is perfectly timed to celebrate Christmas which mere days away, because right now what’s more important than Da Jung being the perfect Prime Minister’s wife is that she wins over the kid’s trust and they give her a chance. I see her changing both Yul as a husband as well as his relationship with the kids, even if he acknowledges he’s a failure that’s not enough and he needs to change it otherwise he’s going to miss out on seeing how they grow into their own individuals. He can take lessons from Da Jung’s dad on how to be a good dad, there’s a role model right in front of him. Also check out the latest pretty BTS pics from the drama, including one showing sunbae Lee Bum Soo giving pointers to Yoona. If he’s the main reason she’s improved so much, I think he needs extra kisses for the miraculous improvement that I appreciate so much.
