Noha I have never tolerated the idea of polygamy or men cheating on their wives or girlfriends in general. However, this movie takes the idea of polygamy to a whole new level. This is a truly sick movie. It makes you annoyed and irritated you from beginning to end. Son ye jin's character has absolutely no redeeming qualities and all her actions are childish and irrational, almost giving the idea that this woman is not a wholly sane person. It is a true waste of time and will absolutely ruin your mood, ahhh specially the ending that depicts the most illogical idea that they all managed to live happily ever after together. Human beings, no matter how forgiving or accepting they are don't have the emotional ability to tolerate this kind of relationships. So even if she was selfish enough, both her husbands would not be able to go with the flow for a long time, no matter how hard they tried. This is without even putting in consideration, the little baby that is supposed to grow with the idea that it is acceptable to have two dads in a relationship with her mom at the same time !!! Actors are good, story is simply scary and off putting.

Kavita @ Ki .. Thank You!!

Twinten Interesting movie with an openminded view on relationships. Though the jealous possessiveness of the main male lead was at times annoying, we guess that is also realistic. Love makes one do stupid things and sadly a lot of people are that possessive and jealous. Ironic how love and hate can be so close together... Definitely refreshing!

Clarkdale44 Thanks guys... your comments saved my time.

Ki “My Wife Got Married,” directed by Yun-su Jeong, sees itself as a smart contemporary take on modern relationships. Similar to the 2006 South Korean film “Love Now” (Saranghaneun Saramgwa Salgo Issumnika?), which is also directed by Yung-su Jeong, “My Wife Got Married” covers extramarital affairs but with an added twist. The woman wants and eventually gets to marry both men. That premise is likely to pique the interests of many and, if not, there’s also Ye-jin Son taking one more step away from her earlier image as the quintessential sweet & innocent girl and plays a take charge woman living with two husbands. Unfortunately, while the premise may grab the attention of many, the screenplay will lure just as many to sheer boredom.

In the movie, In-a Ju (played by Ye-jin Son) works as a high-level computer programmer. She’s intelligent, attractive, and views the world slightly different than your stereotypical gal. In-a loves soccer, drinking through the night, and she’s not afraid to express her sexual side. Her co-worker, Deok-hun (played by Ju-hyuk Kim), becomes swept away by her free-spirited ways and falls head over heels for her. In-a also finds herself falling in love with Deok-hun. Trouble first brews in their relationship when Deok-hun playfully proclaims “you’re mine”. As much as In-a loves Deok-hun she also loves her independence. Because of Deok-hun’s persistence he does finally persuade her to marry him.

Like a lot of marriages, In-a & Deok-hun’s marriage goes smoothly at first, but soon hits rough waters. From Deok-hun’s viewpoint, their relationship becomes stormier after In-a accepts a job transfer to another city. With this job arrangement, she spends her weekdays away from home and only visits Deok-hun on the weekends. Deok-hun finally starts to settle into this arrangement, before becoming blindsided by In-a’s latest proclamation. She’s in love with another man and wants to marry him, but also wants to stay married with Deok-hun.

Early on in the film, “My Wife Got Married” progresses in a manner reminiscent of the facade found in the fancier coffee shops in Korea. Modern, hip, influenced heavily by European decor, but upon closer inspection, you’ll find most of the decor laced with a haughty veneer covering-up its more modest building materials. And on that note, Ye-jin Son provides for an attractive facade to gaze at, but does little to bring substance to her character. Sure she talked liked a free-spirited modern day woman, but you certainly never believed she was that free-spirited modern day woman. Counter-part Ju-hyuk Kim portrays a man torn between his true love and his own ideas of a (traditional) relationship, but because of the poor script or his own remedial performance, comes across as a wimpy simpleton - or what others might call “pussy whipped.”

The movie languishes for a full hour and 20 minutes, until finally having something interesting to watch. When In-a becomes pregnant, the dynamics between the three persons are addressed in more detail. The 2nd husband also appears for the first time. How the two husbands will interact with each other brings up the intrigue factor temporarily. Although the possibilities were vast, the movie again settles for much ado about nothing. The 2nd husband comes across as a vanilla Mr. Nice Guy, ready to come out of the closet at any moment.

One thing that “My Wife Got Married” does get right, is to show in subtle ways the double standards held by some men in Korea. This is shown early on in the film through the actions of Deok-hun. In particular, Deok-hun is attracted to In-a’s sexy ways (sometimes not wearing a bra to work), but once firmly set in their relationship, he mentions his disdain for her dressing in that same manner and acts surprised by her sexual candor. Like the much better 2006 film “Bewitching Attraction” (starring So-ri Moon), “My Wife Got Married” also attempts to turn the tables on the stereotypical Korean relationship. Specifically, the way men fraternize with their co-workers through the night, perhaps meeting other ladies along the way, and then going home to their waiting wife.

While, “My Wife Got Married” will attract attention because of its controversial premise, the film itself usually opts for the safe road rather than anything really controversial. Casting leaves something to be desired, with Ye-jin Son unable to flesh out her complex character and the two men lacking any backbone. After watching Yun-su Jeong’s equally bad “Love Now” and now “My Wife Got Married” I hope I won’t have to watch anymore of his movies anytime soon. Rather than “My Wife Got Married” if you want something in the same ballpark but infinitely more entertaining check out “Bewitching Attraction” (Yeogyosu-ui eunmilhan maeryeok).
