This is a very popular drama currently airing in Korea. I plan on binge watching the series once it finishes.
I finally got around to watching The World of the Married. It's a remake of the BBC series Dr Foster. I never watched Dr Foster, based on what I read about it, The World of the Married sticks close to the original. If anything, changes made to the story are more to fit with its new audience rather than to completely change the story.
The World of the Married deals with infidelity, divorce, single parenting, treatment of women in the workplace and mental health. This is a dark and heavy series that won't be everyone's cup of tea. These are all flawed characters that are messed up in their own way. Maybe because The World of the Married sticks close to the original but, at times, it doesn't feel like you're watching a Kdrama. I like that the series is shot outside of Seoul. "Gosan" is supposed to be like a suburb where everyone knows each other. Good performances by the cast. The OST is excellent. I recommend checking it out.
