JUNG WOO SEOK
TaeKyung Group CEO
He meets a lot of women who are eager to marry him because he is the son of a chaebaol. A lot of people stick to him just to be in his family registry even for two days.
Soo-hyun was different from all those women, he liked her emotionless facial expression. It looks like she has stories to tell but has a graceful look. He thought she would like him also after getting married, but maybe she does not have any emotion of love. That is why he asked her to get a divorce and told her that he had another lover.
KIM HWA JIN
Woo-seok’s Mother, TaeKyung Group Chairman
She is Taekyung Groups owner. She controls Soo-hyun’s mother in any way that she likes. The most important thing for her is to maintain the dignity of her family. She is very bored and stubborn enough to call her ex-daughter-in-law to her birthday party. The ex-mother-in-law who decides her ex-daughter-in-law’s dress code and sends her clothing to wear. She has put an uncuttable leash on Soo-hyun.
Anyone else think that Jang Seung Jo who plays SH’s ex-husband looks like Kim Jae Joong? Until today I thought it was Kim Jae Joong.
Also, I find it interesting that Cha Hwa Yeon who plays the ex-mother-in-law is on My Only One, the weekend family drama starring UEE. She plays a rich, meddlesome mother-in-law in both shows, but very different characters.
I recognize the ex husband from his role in Familiar wife. He was great in that.
I don’t understand the ex-husband’s character very much. I thought he was the one who wanted a divorce because he wanted to marry someone else. But looks like he still likes Soo-Hyun and wants to get back with her. I cannot figure out why they divorced.
There was a discussion about the motivation for the divorce in the comments for the episode 6 recap. Personally, I think he used the affair as a way to spare her from his family. Or the other option is he didn’t realize how much he loved her until he lost her. Either way he’s not turning out to be the typical meddling ex-husband.
