There’s an off-kilter vibe emanating from upcoming KBS drama Ms. Perfect (The Perfect Wife), what with the American Gothic first drama poster and now the doppleganger Single White Female mood in the second. The drama is about Go So Young‘s dream of being the perfect wife even if reality is so far from it, saddled with kids and a loser-ish husband in Yoon Sang Hyun. The family moves into a home owned by rich and mysterious Jo Yeo Jung who starts to get entwined in their lives, along with Sung Joon‘s social climbing lawyer character. Dramas with odd character set ups and synopsis are hit-and-miss in luring me in but this one skews towards eliciting my curiosity, mostly because I wonder if it’ll go for dark comedy and weirdness full on.
Putting the two female leads front and center in the drama poster seems to be a thing, judging from how MBC‘s recent Night Light did it with Lee Yo Won and UEE. I like these types of posters a lot, it makes me sit up and hope that K-dramas are starting to write strong second female leads.
