"The Excellent Wife"starts with a focal pointat theprovide and offers us handiest the naked essentials of the past. Episode one establishes the scandal and we flash aheadto some extent where our heroine has a husband in jail, not anythingyet her telephone contract to her call and a circle of relatives to support. We are presentedto a couple key characters and our lead gets her first court case. This may also be a packed, easyand trendy premiere for the drama.
Kim Hye-kyeong's (Jeon Do-yeon) function is dire, but instead ofthat specialize in her handling of her husband's scandal, we get to look her just as she startsto dance back. Here isa sensibleresolutionin relation to pacing, because we get to the joysa section of her paintings equally a attorneycorrect away. It could also bea lot more realistic. A lady amongsta large mess on her hands and teenyoungsters who want her has little time to type her emotions out.

The disgrace of her husband's scandal is used to humiliate her, her position as an older runninggirl is used to workoutvitality on her. All of this is encouraged by way of a gadget of strict social and administrative center hierarchy. Even so, Hye-kyeong doesn'tpermit this habit from just somebody and she does not settle forthe speculation that her husband's shame is her family's.
The series presentationssymptoms of a revolutionaryway with its characters. Excluding Hye-kyeong's unapologetically fair reaction to the force she receives, we would have a lesbian or bisexual persona in Kim Dan (Nana), which is crucialbreakthrough for Korean television. The drama turns out fitting for social commentary, but it does not fail to rememberthe worth of nice humor in presenting it. The truth that Hye-kyeong uses the theme from "Jaws" as the ringtone for her sweetheart's mother is brilliant.
The premiere episode most commonly sets the tone, major conflicts and the initial ethical alignment of its major characters. Hye-kyeong is just, selfless and caring. Her husband, Lee Tae-joon (Yoo Ji-tae) is entitled, controlling and unfaithful. Hye-kyeong's friend and boss, SEO Joong-won (Yoon Kye-sang) is a mystery and so is her first partner, the aforementioned Dan. The firm's co-CEO, Seo Myeong-hee (Kim Seo-hyeong) is prickly, but she knows good work when she sees it.
My good first impressions notwithstanding, I'm skeptical on some things. The oversight in regards to the CCTV photos is convenient, but can evidence realistically be bypassed so easily? Hye-kyeong's specialise in her husband's cloth cabinet is intriguing, but a little vague. Is she spotting clues or are we to remember that she has been conditioned to generally tend to his image? Regardless, as someone who has not watched the yankee serialI think episode one is a forged start.
"The Good Wife"is directed byLee Jeong-hyo, written byHan Sang-woonand featuresJeon Do-yeon,Yoo Ji-tae,Yoon Kye-sangandKim Seo-hyeong.
