Iju Han isn’t sure where her life went wrong. Once the heiress to a wealthy business magnate, she’s now an ordinary housewife whose main concerns are her nagging in-laws and household chores. Things take a much more tragic turn, however, when she finds her husband confessing his love to her stepsister. Devastated, she runs away, only to be hit by a car and killed. But when she opens her eyes, she finds that she’s awakened a year ago in the past, before her life went awry. Given a second chance at life, Iju vows revenge, determined to take back all that she’s lost.
Stereotypical story with really bad pacing. It's hilarious, in a bad way. It plays out the same: person finds out partner's cheating on her with her sister, person vows to take revenge by partnering up with a big hotshot. Blah blah. Characters are one dimensional and forced. Sister is always the bitch, MC is the victim who's now turned 180. ML is your stock male lead of "I find you amusing lolol ok lets do a contract marriage then", and everything FL does is viewed by ML as "Wow, this girl is so interesting. I've never seen a person like this before" when all FL does is common sense. I'm worried for these chaebols if common sense is some rare pokemon. Also, FL lacks common sense (what a contradiction!) even though she's supposedly portrayed as this new, headstrong, smart person. Who gets piss drunk, alone with another person you've just met?? Author is just force ticking the boxes for cliches at this point. And! Plenty of shitty mother/mother-in-laws, because this type of webtoon isn't complete without that cliche. One redeeming point is that they're both from the future, probably. So there's mutual understanding between them, and time traveling spices up the plot. Art is pretty good. Some eyes out of focus though. Meh story. Read it for some really cliche, braindead plot.
Perfect Marriage Revenge is fine. It grapples with too much. Revenge, romance, trauma, mystery, career, cooking, time travel, and winning over in-laws. And the author seems to forget important details, I was confused to see our protagonist unable to cook when in the beginning chapters she's a housewife forced to prepare food for her family. furthermore, as someone who can't eat dishes made by others wouldn't it make sense to do it yourself then? Or as someone who wants to inherit the family business, suddenly, focusing on an artistic career? What? The pacing seemed extremely strange to me too, it starts off extremely slow, then ramps up to fall back down to a crawl. Honestly, I'm not so sure I would recommend this, when there are simply better options.
