About This DVD

This Korean comedy (aka: Mister Housewife) from director Yoo Sun Dong examines gender roles in modern day Korea to hilarious effect.

34 year old Jin Man (Han Suk Kyu, better known for his macho roles in The Scarlet Letter and Tell Me Something) used to run a large labor union but now stays at home whilst his wife goes out to work everyday. He is a good cook and housekeeper and dedicates his life to looking after their young daughter.

However, when he gets caught out in a confidence scam and loses all the money he had put aside for his father-in-law's operation, Jin Man takes desperate measures. Slipping on a dress he applies to take part in the TV game show "Quiz Show For Wives," in the hope of winning the jackpot.

“Quiz King” (Directed by Yoo Seon-dong, starring Han Seok-Kyu, Sin Eun-kyeong) is a comedy, and the catchphrase for the movie reads: “A male housewife’s delightful coming-out.”

As can be inferred by the phrase “coming-out,” this movie comes with the premise that it is an embarrassing secret for a man to stay at home. The main character, Oh Jin-man, betrays this premise and appears on a TV quiz show to reveal his identity to the world. He suffers a brief period of despair when his wife leaves home because of her embarrassing husband, but the couple end up living happily ever after.

Han Suk-gyu is natural and comfortable in his role, starring as Oh Jin-man, a former elite corporate worker who has been a homemaker for six years. His sudden transformation, wearing mascara, fake eyelashes and high heels, is hilarious. Shin Eun-gyung stars as his wife, a master of ceremonies at a broadcast station.

Jin-man enters a mutual-aid union hoping to receive more interest, but when someone runs off with the money, he is forced to raise 30 million won. He decides to go for the prize money in a quiz show for housewives, and enters the preliminaries dressed as a woman. His identity is revealed, however, but the broadcast station realizes this could be a hit and allows him to enter the show anyway. An expert in both current affairs and homemaking, Jin-man wins for three consecutive weeks and becomes a celebrity.
