It looks like we’re in for a cute, sunny romance in SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday rom-com Jealousy Incarnate, unless you’re Jo Jung-seok (Oh My Ghostess), that is, in which case you’re in for a little karmic retribution in the form of petty jealousy.

Movie Review: Voice (Whispering Corridors 4, 2005)
