From director Yoo Seon Dong comes the offbeat Mister Housewife (a.k.a. Quiz King), a riotous new comedy starring Han Suk Kyu from The President's Last Bang and Shin Eun Kyung from My Wife is a Gangster! Released in 2005, this humorous film centers on the madcap life of Oh Jin Man (Han Suk Kyu), a former corporate suit turned stay-at-home husband, who's served in that capacity for the last six years. When a moneymaking scheme goes horribly awry, Jin Man is forced to take some drastic action in order to raise the thirty million won he needs to recoup.
His brilliant solution? Win the prize on a television game show! While not exactly practical, the plan is possible, that is, if it weren't for a lingering little problem - the quiz show is meant for housewives only! Jin Man, however, remains undaunted by the gender discrimination and finds away around the rules. To gain entrance into the crucial preliminary rounds, Jin Man disguises himself as a woman, donning makeup and high heels in a laugh-out-loud funny transformation that has to be seen to be appreciated! But just as things seem to be working, his true identity is exposed. Surprisingly though, the people in charge at the station realize that they may just have the next big hit on their hands, so they decide to let Jin Man remain in the contest as a ratings ploy! Well-versed in current events and housework in general, Jin Man gets off to a good start on the show, eventually becoming the newest television celebrity!
But he doesn't let all that attention get in the way of his personal affairs. Just like other housewives, Jin Man is right in the thick of it, searching for the best sales, powerwalking in the morning, and gabbing about the latest K-dramas with his newfound friends! But ultimately, can Jin Man balance his life as a stay-at-home husband with his newly crowned celebrity status as Quiz King? Find out in Mister Housewife, the hilarious send-up/homage to housewives and househusbands everywhere!
