YesAsia Editorial Description

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes... the suffering. Directed by Min Kyu Dong (Antique), the blockbuster romantic comedy All About My Wife revolves around a couple in their seventh year of marriage. Lee Seon Gyun (Petty Romance) is the harried husband who just wants to get away from his eccentric, nagging wife, charmingly played by Lim Soo Jung (Come Rain Come Shine). His hilarious quest for separation, however, comes back to bite him in unexpected ways. Ryu Seung Ryong (War of the Arrows), Lee Kwang Soo (Love On-Air), Kim Jung Tae (He's On Duty), and Kim Ji Young (Cyrano Agency) co-star in this funny, bittersweet take on love and marriage.

Jung In (Lim Soo Jung) and Doo Hyun (Lee Seon Gyun) serendipitously meet in Japan during an earthquake, and they fall in love and get married in a lovey-dovey whirlwind. Seven years later, Jung In and Doo Hyun are still married, but the magic is long gone. Doo Hyun is sick and tired of Jung In's constant nagging and complaints, but he's too scared to confront her for a divorce. He even requests a job transfer to another province to get away, but Jung In gamely moves home with him. Desperate for a way out, Doo Hyun hires his caddish neighbor Sung Ki (Ryu Seung Ryong) to seduce his wife!

Director: Min Kyu Dong

After seven yars of marriage, Doo-hyun (Lee Sun-kyun) is at the end of his rope. Jun-in (LIM Soo-jung) his wife, is beautiful, sexy, and a fantastic cook, but drives her husband crazy with her endless nagging and complaining. He can’t even brign himself to ask for a divorce because of the fights that will follow. Desperate but too afraid to ask for a divorce, Doo-huyn recruits his next-door neighbor and legendary Casanova Seong-ki (RYU Seung-ryong) to seduce his wife and make her leave him first. After scoping her out, Seong-ki is intrigued by the challenge and confidently agrees to seduce Jung-in as a Casanova project. Veering away for the gauzy formula of romantic comedies “All About My Wife” is a sexy and funny portrayal of how we fall in and out of love.

Professional Review of "All About My Wife (2012) (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)"

December 20, 2012

This professional review refers to All About My Wife (Blu-ray) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)
Although it may sound worryingly like just another Korean romantic comedy, All About my Wife is thankfully a film with a lot more to offer. Directed by Min Kyu Dong (Antique), the film is actually a remake of the 2008 Argentinean A Boyfriend for My Wife and follows the efforts of an unhappy husband to try and sabotage his marriage by hiring another man to seduce his wife. The offbeat premise certainly hit home with Korean audiences, and the film emerged as one of the year's biggest domestic blockbusters, notching up over 4.5 million admissions.

The film opens sweetly enough, with Jung In (Lim Soo Jung, I'm a Cyborg, but that's OK) and Doo Hyun (Lee Seon Gyun, also in the excellent Petty Romance) meeting in Japan during an earthquake and falling in love. Fast forward some seven years, and their marriage has soured, Doo Hyun struggling to put up with Jung In constantly nagging and trying to control him. Too cowardly to actually ask for a divorce, the harried man manages to transfer his job to another town, though his happiness is short lived when she suddenly turns up at his door. At his wits end, Doo Hyun engages the services of his casanova neighbour Sung Ki (Ryu Seung Ryong, War of the Arrows), asking him to cultivate an affair with Jung In so that he has an excuse for dumping her.

This leads to the expected complications, with Sung Ki falling for Jung In and Doo Hyun realising the error of his ways, and to an extent All About my Wife is predictable, at least in terms of its basic plot. Where the film excels however, is in terms of character development and relationships, with an impressive and delightfully engaging script that lifts it considerably above other similarly themed genre outings. Starting off like a Sassy Girl clone, with Jung In threatening to amount to nothing more than another aggressively quirky annoyance, Doo Hyun as a bullied weakling and Sung Ki as a comedy cad, it soon delves more deeply, and all three evolve into refreshingly believable and substantial figures. The shifting dynamics between the three make for entertaining and sharp viewing, and their love triangle packs in a fair few surprises, the film emerging as being more about people finding and coming to terms with themselves rather than trite and cutesy romance.

Indeed, Min Kyu Dong takes things into some pretty dark places, revolving mainly around lies and deception, and digging at the male ego and insecurities, and the film comes across at times almost as an anti-rom com, much to its benefit. Though it gets some mileage out of farcical misunderstandings, the comedy is generally of the witty rather than slapstick variety, and this helps to keep it grounded, as well as generating some very effective laughs. Unlike most other Korean films of its type, the film goes for a thoughtful and dramatic last act rather than falling back into tears and hackneyed melodrama, and manages the switch to seriousness very well, having moved beyond the question of who Jung In will end up with. This makes for a satisfying and moving conclusion, giving the film a mature and more adult air, mercifully free of any last minute airport dashes or other cliches.

In part this, and the film's success as a whole is down to Lim Soo Jung's superb, multi-layered performance, which sees her making Jung In into a rounded and likeable figure, who the viewer slowly but surely warms to and comes to root for. Both Lee Seon Gyun and Ryu Seung Ryong also deserve credit for their game turns as the two increasingly unravelling men in her life, and though it's really her film, they successfully add depth and humanity to their supporting roles.

All of this combines to make All About my Wife one of the better and more accomplished Korean romantic comedy dramas of recent years, and one of the very few to be amusing, moving and convincing at the same time. Solidly directed by Min Kyu Dong and steadied by Lim Soo Jung's fine central showing, it's a film definitely worth seeking out and should be enjoyed even by those who normally run a mile when hearing the phrase rom com.

Love that altered when it alteration found Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Director Min Kyu Dong's "All About My Wife" spends its first hour as a quirky comedy about a man desperate to find a way to dump his astoundingly needy and annoying wife. Doo Hyun (Lee Seon Gyun) meets pretty Jung In (Lim Soo Jung) in Japan, where Jung In has gone to learn the Japanese language. While in Japan, Jung In has resolved with herself to speak nothing but Japanese, which -- since she struggles to form Japanese sentences -- results in her being much less voluble than her usual self. It is this tongue-tied cutey-pie with whom Doo Hyun falls in love. However, after returning to Korea and marrying her, Doo Hyun finds that his bride never ceases from her in-your-face complaining about anything and everything.

Doo Hyun attempts to make himself obnoxious to Jung In in hopes that she will abandon him. It doesn't work. He gets himself transferred to a small town, hoping to leave his wife behind in Seoul. She comes along. In the small town, Doo Hyun learns that his neighbor Sung Ki (Ryu Seung Ryong) is a tireless Casanova who leaves a trail of broken-hearted women in his wake. Doo Hyun hires Sung Ki to seduce his wife, so that he will acquire a reason to divorce her. Even this foolproof plan goes awry.

And with the seduction plan going off-track, the movie begins to shift gears, dropping its comedic elements and becoming something almost entirely different, just as Jung In becomes someone almost entirely different. The amorous attentions she receives from Sung Ki have an unexpected effect upon her. Her complaints become tempered. She takes a job on a radio talk show on which she, first, airs her grievances in endless rants, then modulates her jeremiads and becomes a bit more thoughtful. The radio-listening public mystifyingly embraces her perorations. Soon the talk show morphs into a program in which she confronts people and criticizes them. The listening audience eats it up. And somehow we now are to see Jung In as a sympathetic character who had been bottled up as a homemaker but now is finding her voice as a radio talker. When she walks away from the radio job, we learn that she has received several teaching offers. (To teach what? How to complain and criticize?)

I found the second half of "All About My Wife" to be odd and unpersuasive, but its unexpected twists and turns made for engaging viewing and my desire to see what would happen next never flagged. Ryu Seung Ryong delivers a compelling performance as the stormy Casanova. Definitely worth a look.

When a man loves a woman (A) Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
At a chance meeting in Japan at the time of a minor earthquake, terrified Jung-in (Soo Jung) is consoled by Doo-hyun (Seon Gyun) as he takes her to a seismic proof cabin. There Doo-hyun puts Jung-in at ease and being smitten by her stringent preference to speak Japanese and cute appeal, the two soon date like crazy, fall in love and eventually get married. But 7 years on things are different. Jung-in is far from the cute placid girl in Japan and more a feisty, truth cutting and demanding woman. At their home Jung-in regularly argues acidly with a local paper delivery guy about unwanted newspapers, and when Jung-in puts her verbal point across, she nags big time. Doo-hyun gets all stressed and embarrassed at these conflicts and also feels ‘shackled’ by Jung-in stifling his privacy. Jung-in being a good cook, Doo-hyun likes her food in the dining room, but without complaint as to even eat when washing and sleeping, infact even when Doo-hyun takes a dump Jung-in insists he drinks her fruit drinks while doing his number 2s. On top of food, Jung-in and Doo-hyun have trouble conceiving for a baby, adding more irrational stress to the ‘magic’ of their relationship. But mostly its Jung-in’s constant irritation with petty mad worldly unfairness, such as when Jung-in observes a cartoon pig waitress sign over a pork food shop, Jung-in remarks to her harassed husband ‘should dead pigs be respected like that?’ or complaining over a lamb kebab shop selling meat next to a fluffy sheep toy seller - that drives Doo-hyun really mad. Even outings are a problem, like when Jung-in and Doo-hyun eat (and argue) at a restaurant, when a small fire breaks out on another couple’s table, Jung-in casually fills her mouth with drink and blows it all out on the fire.

All this eccentric wife pressure drives Doo-hyun bonkers and feels he needs a annulment before having a nervous breakdown. But scared of the consequences of asking Jung-in for a divorce (maybe fearing her extra tough frying pans), decides otherwise. But as Doo-hyun takes up an away job offer with his architecture company for a nag respite, he’s thwarted as Jung-in also decides to go to Doo-hyun’s ‘sanctuary’ to keep him company. (Bang goes his toilet freedom). But there Doo-hyun discovers Sung-ki (Seung Ryong), a Bohemian/Casanova artist and a man hindered by women throwing themselves at him. Seeing this Doo-hyun beseeches and begs the Casanova to seduce his wife, so that Doo-hyun can have a reason for divorce.

When a man loves a woman (B) Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The magic of “All About My Wife” is Jung-in’s feisty character, but also how all three protagonists mix excellently into a savagely witty and acerbic satire, making for a very good Korean rom-com. Jung-in’s verbal passions of trying to put the world to rights as to be heard to be appreciated (Jung-in even getting her own radio show slot to fume her views), and boy does Jung-in put the verbal boot in. She stands no messing whatsoever and hates stifling norms (especially women who tell other women they should get pregnant on their honey moon), love by fate, animal oppression, sexual abuse and well, any bulls**t that gets right up her nose. But Jung-in isn’t just an obnoxious woman with petty hates. Although passionately loathing certain social norms, underneath her acrid nature is a truthful, loving and sensitive woman. But for Doo-hyun to be married to Jung-in’s loud grumpy soapbox mode is a challenge to say the least, hence him taking the path in trying to get his wife seduced by Sung-ki. At first Sung-ki slaps Doo-hyun about the head having misgivings about Doo-hyun’s weak willed way to get his freedom back, but Sung-ki eventually capitulates and pulls in every one of his women empathy skills to turn Jung-in to his attentions. All leading to bitter feuds of madcap silliness and serious upsets. At one point Doo-hyun, although wanting Sung-ki to seduce his wife, spies on them both at an amusement park, causing Doo-hyun and Sung-ki to get into a madcap ‘fight’ in a Ferris wheel cabin car. Doo-hyun though is an emotional wreck, having lost his true love and leaving him to drown in his art, drink and seductions. But his partial genuine woe causes Jung-in to sympathize and become interested in him (on top of the fact Sung-ki tells Jung-in she as nice ankles). Of course its ‘Casanova’ strategy to win Jung-in’s favor. Trouble really brews though when Doo-hyun eventually realizes he’s a bit of a goof ball, and when Sung-ki falls in love with Jung-in, Doo-hyun desperately wants her back.

Soo Young performs one of the best sassy assy roles here since, well that Korean Sassy One you all know and love, and as Jung-in she’s one cutting woman with an honest heart. Seon-geun and Seung Ryong are also two additional parts to an excellent whole. Three great bits of acting here. I’d recommend this a lot for its sharp script, balance of humor and satire and Jung-ins pet hates are gems. Excellent packaging too, like the old days. Don’t pass on this one!
