We can’t say that this K-drama is anything lighter than the others. I never knew that this K-drama could make my blood boil in anger when I first saw this drama. If you love Han So-Hee, you’ll probably love her more when you see her acting here, but it’ll definitely anger you with her character at the same time.

The K-drama is based on a BBC One series entitled Doctor Foster. The story brings you to a whirlwind of revenge, love, betrayal, grief, and more. It may be three years ago since its release, but this marked the highest-rated drama in Korean cable history.

The World of the Married revolves around the story of Ji Seon-U, a family medicine doctor and also the associate director at the Family Love Hospital, and wed to Lee Tae-Oh, an aspiring director. They have a son, Lee Jun-Yeong, however, problems arise as Tae-Oh began to have an affair with Yeo Da-Kyung. Seon-U thinks she has the perfect family, friends, and even the perfect life, not when she knew about the affair and everything just falls apart. So you better watch how Ji Seon-U takes on the revenge road for this K-drama!

  • Kim Hee-Ae, Park Hae-Joon, and Han So-Hee lead this revenge-romance drama. While other cast includes Lee Kyung-Young, Lee Moo-Saeng, Kim Young-Min, Shim Eun-Woo, Park Sun-Young, and Jeon Jin-Seo.

At a young age, Kim Do-Ki (played by Lee Je-Hoon) lost his mother as she was murdered by a serial killer way back. Do-Ki became a former Underwater Demolition Team (UDT) and now works as a taxi driver.

The twist though: Do-Ki works as a taxi driver under a company that offers “revenge-call” services. So if one avail of the service Do-Ki and his co-workers should be on their way to do it. BTW, it has a season two if you can’t get enough of the first!

  • Joining Lee Je-Hoon, the cast includes Esom as Kang Ha-Na and Ahn Go-Eun as Pyo Ye-Jin. More familiar names like Kim Eui-Sung, Park Jin-Hee, Cha Ji-Yeon, Yoo Seung-Mok, Jang Hyuk-Jin, and Bae Yoo-Ram can be caught in the series too.
