A press preview for “My Wife Got Married” at Yongsan CGV in Seoul on Wednesday created plenty of buzz, not least because of Son Ye-jin, who plays a woman who breaks the established social framework by marrying two men simultaneously to seek genuine love and happiness.
In a press conference afterwards, Son said, “I think she is a rare character given that she pursues free love. If I hadn’t loved and cared for the character, it would seem unforgivable.”
The film adds a new dynamic to the novel on which it is based. Viewers are drawn deep inside the story, losing their sense of what is right and wrong by conventional standards. The work embraces football as a subject matter like the original novel, where it serves as an important metaphor for love and life.
“In the film it also plays an important role in bringing the main characters together in their first meeting and developing their feelings into love,” Son says. She calls it “a romantic melodrama that will appeal to the taste of young, laid-back people.”
The film is to be released on Oct. 23.credit: firstname.lastname@example.org
