Song Ji Hyo and Lee Sun Gyun are all laughs at the first script reading for My Wife's Having an Affair This Week
Ever since they announced that Song Ji Hyo would be playing the "cheating" wife of Lee Sun Gyun in upcoming comedic drama My Wife's Having an Affair This Week, I've been looking forward to seeing the two talented actors together on screen, and we finally get a peek at their comedic chemistry at the drama's first script reading!
The entire cast, including Lee Sang Yeob, BoA, Kim Hee Won, and Ye Ji Won, recently gathered together to try out their characters for the first time, and it looks like they couldn't go a minute without bursting into laughter!
The overall consensus between the actors was, “I came to practice the script, but my stomach hurts from laughing.”
When each couple was asked to give a statement about their first reaction to the script, Lee Sun Gyun and Song Ji Hyo commented, “I think this will be one of the funniest dramas ever. The scripts are out until episode 12, and I think the quality [of the drama] will be high.” Couple number two, Lee Sang Yeob and BoA, stated, “The characters are so alive. It was so fun. I want to hurry and start filming.” And the third couple, Kim Hee Won and Ye Ji Won, revealed, “It is surprising how realistic the drama is. It doesn’t just make you laugh, it moves you too.”
In My Wife's Having an Affair This Week, Do Hyun Woo (Lee Sun Kyun) is a producer who has been working in television for over 10 years, and believes he is immensely lucky to have both a successful career and happy marriage. One day, he finds a reservation for a hotel room on his wife’s phone, which leads him to believe his significant other (Song Ji Hyo) is about to have an affair. Because he isn’t sure how to solve this problem, he wants to reach out for advice but also does not want to compromise his privacy. So, instead of openly sharing his problem with the world, Do Hyun Woo decides to join the online forum, 'Cheated Spouses Anonymous'. There, he speaks to several members who have experienced the betrayal of a loved one, while attempting to heal his own insecurity. Adding to the his tensions are Do Hyun Woo’s old college classmate (Master: God of Noodles star Lee Sang Yeob) and his lawyer friend (Gu Family Book alum Kim Hee Won), with the straight-talking workaholic writer Kwon Bo Young (international pop sensation BoA) rounding out the mess going on in Do Hyun Woo’s head. Will our Sherlock be able to solve this mystery of supposed infidelity, or will colluding with others that have been cheated on only intensify his paranoia?
