Drama Review 'The Excellent Wife' Episode 2

We have every other event involving girls in episode two of"The Just right Wife"and this time the crime is rape. Hye-kyeong's emotional bonding to her first consumer served her well, yet she falters when she will have toprotectany individual who makes her uncomfortable. Our empathetic heroine's principles are challenged, the power starts affecting her and we be told that she will havea gloomy secret to answer to for. To make subjects worse, her husband helps to keep interfering with her work.

Both instancesto this point are non-public to Hye-kyeong (Jeon Do-yeon) for other reasons. She felt empathy for the wife of an untrue husband who dragged her into his mess, because she herself is shamed for Tae-joon (Yoo Ji-tae). This time the victim lands at thecontraryaspect of the spectrum. Like the lady Tae-joon cheated with, the buyer is a sex employee who might accept likewise been hired through him at some point. Hye-kyeong struggles with this, which is the maximum importanta phase of her persona development.

AdvertisementIt could also bean excellent cautionary tale about the glorification of emotionally invested felony representatives. Fiction steadilyitems lawyers who bond with prospects as champions of justice, but bias is a flaw in genuine life. Hye-kyeong handiest hesitates momentarily, but it still influences her religion in her client. The rape case is used for treasured social commentary. Rape culture assures the prospective victim's observe is at all times undervalued and the preconceptions on sex employees makes their combat even harder.

Coming back to the primary story, we get a neaterglance how the scandal affects Hye-kyeong's family. I to find ITappealingthat we have gotnow notobserved any of her buddiesexcept Joong-won (Yoon Kye-sang). She feels remoted and her meltdown is understandable. Joong-won obviously has a weigh down on her, but I wonder how he would react to a imaginable rejection or persisted disobedience by her at work. He's success-driven and I'm actually notcertain about his character yet.

As I mention earlier, Hye-kyeong gets some much wanted characterization here. I appreciate the primary episode's center of attention on her existingscenario and actions, but her thoughts, emotions and expansion as a character are vital in her own story. I'm hopingto look more of what she keeps inside ofand notice her morality challenged. Apart fromthe present scandal, the writing suggests that Hye-kyeong is the wrongdoer to successful and run which Tae-joon shielded her from.

This tournament explains why Tae-joon feels entitled to interfere with her work. More importantly, the reality that Hye-kyeong accepts his assistback feels a little like creating acare for the satan twice. Preferencemay finally finish up in corruption and i'minterested by Hye-kyeong's choices. The writing is still shaky on the procedural part, but here's a Korean drama so I assume aneought tosettle for this and cross on.

"The Sensible Wife"is directed byLee Jeong-hyo, written byHan Sang-woonand featuresJeon Do-yeon,Yoo Ji-tae,Yoon Kye-sangandKim Seo-hyeong.
