Jin Man (Han Suk Kyu) is a full time househusband who takes care of his daughter and house chores. His wife (Shin Eun Kyung) works at a television station. Ji Man enjoys working as a househusband. One day, he encounters financial troubles and he has no choice but to participate in the TV game show, “Housewife Quiz Show” to win the grand prize. Even though he dressed as woman, he was caught but he was taken in to join the quiz show.

When you watch this film, you’ll understand that homemakers, regardless of gender, have been working hard to keep the family happy and healthy. Jin Man expresses his feelings about how hard he works as a homemaker to keep the family happy. He cares about others which is why he has no chioice but to participate in the TV game show. He’s a really sweet guy whom you want him to be a father or a friend.

On the other hand, his wife only cares about her job. She’s selfish and doesn’t understand why Jin Man is doing this. At the beginning, she focuses on her job more than her family. This leads to lack of love in the family. Every time when I see her talking so bad about Jin Man, I want to scold her off for what she did. Even though she is ‘lost’, but she only thinks about herself more than others. In the end, I forgive her because she realises that she was wrong for what she has done.

In one whole package, you can see that homemakers are also working hard for the family. When it comes to men being the homemakers, family should be proud and not be embarrassed by it. The point is that they take care of and be there for you. In the end, you’ll be thankful to have either mothers or fathers who are great homemakers. Besides, you’ll probably miss your parents’ homecook meals right now. This is a great family film to watch and what it is like to be a homemaker.

Rating: 8/10
