So when you use an wide lens adapter you will loose a little bit of Shallow DOF/Bokeh? Is that it? Or you maintain the same bokeh, before using the wide lens adapter, at the same distance from the subject, but with a wider field of view (that's my objective)?

The latter. You maintain the same DOF and bokeh.

Is there any good cheap wide lens adapter for the NX1, out there, that you recomend?

Wide angle lens adapters fit on the front of your lens via filter-screw. So, depending on the filter size of your lens (nothing to do with NX1 camera), you will have to search for wide angle adapters that fit. Step-filter rings can often create a mess (black corners). Look for wide angle lens adapters offered by reputable brands (Canon, Nikon etc.) and see which ones fit on your lens.

On my NX 16-50mm OIS lens, I use Nikon WC-E68x with a 43-46mm step filter ring. There is slight issue in corners (black) which I can live with for candid videos.
