[MHN Roh Pooleun] Smash-hit JTBC drama series 'The World of the Married' has wrapped up its 16-episode run, setting a record high with viewership of nearly 28.4% for a cable drama, surpassing the previous record set by another JTBC drama series 'SKY Castle'.
Originally based on BBC TV series 'Doctor Foster', which aired in 2015 and 2017, the 16-episode series has captured Korean viewers with its intense suspense and swift storytelling smartly altered for the Korean cultural context.
The plot centers on Ji Sun-Woo, played by Kim Hee-ae, a dedicated wife and doctor who finds out about her husband's betrayal and sets out to take revenge against him.
JTBC will start to air the original BBC series, 'Doctor Foster', this week in place of 'The World of the Married'.
