We don’t know who the official subbers are yet. This is shown on a relatively new cable channel , so I’m not sure if there will be any

Thank you for the highlight video with new stills,  @briseis

@liddi, Thank you for the Sooompi article about the 3 marriages.  I was relieved to read that all 3 marriages are not happy ones, in that the affairs are not the cause of a break of a beautiful marriage.

Also, thank you for the article about Park Ha-Sun. To be honest, when I first read that she was offered the lead, I almost did not expect that she would accept  - being a new wife and mom.  I was pleasantly surprised when she accepted, and very much looking forward to her and Lee Sang Yeob lighting up the screen; 

Thank you also for the article with the new poster.  Good new poster, and explanation. 

Cute photo of Park Ha-Sun with Jung Sang-Hoon too....  Come to think of it, I think this may be the first time I am going to see him in a role that is not comic...?!

And thank you for the new teasers.  I am glad Channel A is  advertising it now.

@triplem, thank you for the teaser and the new stills. I remember we read about her birds.... sort of an analogy to love birds, I think.

Also, do you know by any chance if Viu is planning on subbing this drama?

Below are a few more stills

@irilight unfortunately I don’t see this drama on Viu’s list. And Viki has not committed to sub it right?

@irilight PHS' decision to accept this role took me very much by surprise as well, and I hope that it will be the right choice for her. 

 

Latest preview... so she is shoplifting too in this version. Wonder if they will keep very close to the original in terms of narrative...

 

 

Photos from the press conference...

@triplem, yes.. Sadly, so far no license from Viki.  I still suggest to continue requesting it. Better late than never. Viki has - on occasion - licensed a drama past it's premier date,  and occasionally  - even after it's run is over. So, I do encourage everyone to continue sending requests.
And thank you for your answer about Viu.

@liddi, thank you much, for this new teaser. I think it is actually my favorite from all the teasers we have seen.  I put a link to it on the Dramabeans article. Maybe they will write additional article about the drama

Thank you also for snapshots from the Press Conference.

Here is one more, that includes the spouses.

This drama will premiere TONIGHT! :D I'm actually looking forward to it. It reminds me a bit of the drama "A Wife's Credentials" which dealt with marriage and family dynamics in South Korea but also the struggle of being stuck in a loveless marriage. So I hope for another layered drama on these issues.

Here they are talking about what kind of message they want to tell true the drama :) 

 

PD And Park Ha Sun Emphasize That “Love Affairs In The Afternoon” Is Not Meant To Glamorize Adultery

PD And Park Ha Sun Emphasize That “Love Affairs In The Afternoon” Is Not Meant To Glamorize Adultery

Jul 5, 2019
by L. Kim

Park Ha Sun and the director of “Love Affairs in the Afternoon” have strongly denied that the drama romanticizes affairs.

“Love Affairs in the Afternoon” is a remake of the Japanese drama “Hirugao: Love Affairs in the Afternoon” and tells the stories of adults who engage in extramarital affairs. Recently, the director and the cast of the upcoming drama attended the press conference at a hotel in Gangnam, Seoul.

Producing director (PD) Kim Jung Min shared, “It is a drama where spouses find themselves and grow up in their own conflicts and agony. For married couples, it’s a drama that gives an opportunity to reflect on what you’re headed towards. While the drama is a melodrama in genre, it contains warm emotions of love.”

Since the drama revolves around a romance between people who are already married, people may misunderstand that the drama glorifies affairs. In response, Kim Jung Min said, “Although it is on the subject of an extramarital affair, when I made it, I didn’t think it was a romance about married people who cheated. Rather than expressing a passionate melodrama, I thought the viewers would be able to experience the sensibility of the original Japanese drama, the protagonist’s conflict and agony, love, and self-reflection. Rather than portraying a beautiful image and beautiful love, I asked [the actors] for sincere, simple acting of a realistic married couple. It is true that the drama itself contains affairs. Love is [something that] ‘gradually sinks in,’ but if you watch until episode 16, there is a message about life and human beings.”

Park Ha Sun also shared her opinion, saying, “This is definitely not a drama that promotes or glorifies an affair. It won’t be something that’s uncomfortable to watch either. We feel the responsibility in regards to that aspect and are creating [the drama] while carefully checking. On the contrary, it will be more painful to sympathize with each and every character. I filmed this hoping that it will have a thoroughly sad ending. You don’t need to worry too much. If it was a regular romance drama, it would be nice to shoot a date scene, but [filming] was hard and gloomy. It is a drama that can show [people] ‘you shouldn’t do this,’ ‘if you do this, it will be hard,’ and ‘you’ll completely break down.'”

Park Ha Sun also talked about maturing as an actress. She commented, “It is a drama about the things that happen when an ordinary housewife meets a neighbor and a man. I identified with it a lot. I thought it was the best character I could do now because it’s an ordinary character.”

Lastly, Kim Jung Min stated, “We filmed at least half the drama so far. I am confident that we can develop sympathy with the actors’ performances. I’m grateful to the actors for their sincere approach.”

@irilight That is marvellous news indeed! Hoping Netflix or VIU picks it up too.

 

Apparently the Chinese title is 平日下午三点的恋人 which literally translates to "Lovers at 3PM on the weekdays".

@sal2,  Thank you for this article. It is very well written, and covers the issue of adultery in this drama well. That is an issue we discussed here too.  This article, and what both the director and Park Ha-Sun said about it, confirms what I thought too.. That is going to be a quality drama with important message about affairs within a marriage.

There was another drama I remember abut that subject, and it was also based on real life case. It was called "My Wife is Having an Affair."   Did you all see it?   It was well done, I thought.

@liddi,   Thank you for the translation of the title from Chinese.  Sounds they were set to always meet at that time, as a regular event.

Sadly, I sort of think that it will not show up on Viu or Netflix, because it says on ODK that it is an ODK Exclusive.

At least, I am happy we will get to see it with subs.

The show did a good job in the introduction of our characters just in one episode, especially in giving us the set up of SJE's marital condition, enough to make me feel sympathetic for her already only 15 minutes in, wanting her to forget about her husband and just leave him :sweatingbullets:

 

Below is the recap

Spoiler

Scene opened with SJE on her bicycle going home. She saw and passed a neighboring house that was on fire. At home, she continued to watch the fire being put out from her balcony. From there, she also spotted the whole family of CSA looking at the fire. In another direction, there was fireworks, SJE turned her attention there, and noticed the family turned around to watch it too. She commented, that the same fire, one brings celebration, while the other brings disaster.

She was getting dinner ready when the husband came home, greeting the birds so lovingly and not even looking in her direction. They talked about the fire. He only turned to look at her when she didn't answer him whether she has fed the birds or not, because they're looking thinner. He also made a comment about the cage being dirty.

 

CSA's family of four sat down for a fancy dinner at a restaurant. Husband gave her a pair of earrings, to commemorate their moving into a new house. Cut to SJE eating with her husband, who is busy looking at his phone She told him about the new family that moved into the big house across from their building, wondering how much it cost to build such a house. Husband suggested to change their house, but showed her a fancy cage for birds instead on his phone, it is even named as Alhambra Castle, pffft.... SJE sarcastically remarked that the birds must be so happy to have a Chaebol daddy who buys them a castle. She left the dining table ignoring her husband. In the restroom, she washed her face and wished he would stopped calling her Omma (of the birds). Husband already in bed when she got into the bedroom. She suggested them to have a baby, but husband just say let's sleep. SJE laid down beside her and narrated that it's been 3 years since they slept together. She couldn't sleep and went out to the balcony for some fresh air. Then she saw CSA's family reaching home from their fancy dinner. She went in and talked to the birds, asking them if they're happy, that before dying, life should not just about living, like they should be flying out there instead of in the cage.

 

Morning time at CSA's house. She prepared breakfast while the girls showed off their dancing skills, and Dad looked on proudly. At SJE's house, breakfast is ready on the table, but husband only drank the juice she prepared saying he is running late, but he took time to say goodbye to the birds and even blew them kisses. SJE even reminded him gently Didn't you say you're running late? She saw him off to the door, and when he turned around, she smiled a bit, looking hopeful, but he just told her to give the birds a bath today.... pffttt... As he turned to walk out, he kicked and messed up her shoes. She bent down and tidied them, saying that it felt like the most precious thing in life is ruined, just like a butterfly leaving only empty dry shell behind. She looked in the mirror and said that even if her house got caught in fire today, she would probably not cry. For her, there is not one thing that she worked very hard to protect... Then her MIL came into the house. She was shocked that she knew the password of her house. MIL brought some herbal medicine to help with conceiving baby (The lady needs to be informed that they're not even sleeping together) and commented about having children, and that she should put on make up and dress nicely. SJE drank the medicine obediently. She needs to leave for work, but MIL said she will stay back to help with cleaning, including the fridge, which SJE insisted rather anxiously No, leave that to me. I'll do it after work.

And that was the first 15 minutes... LOL, I have to go for now, will be back asap to continue the recap.
