The recently-concluded “The World Of The Married” emerged as one of South Korea’s highest-rated and most talked-about dramas of all time, and we could easily see why. This Korean adaptation of the BBC One series “Doctor Foster” is an intense exposition of marital scandals and intrigue that people seemingly can’t get enough of time and time again.
