It’s a groom face-off in new posters for tvN’s Love in Contract
I shouldn’t love the sound of tvN’s Love in Contract as much as I do… but if contract romance is your drama catnip, this drama promises it in
Starring Park Min-young (Forecasting Love and Weather), the story follows our heroine Choi Sang-eun, who cosplays the perfect wife for men who want to stay single, but need to appear married for pesky social, financial, and/or familial reasons. Her long-time client is Jung Ji-ho — played by Go Kyung-pyo (Private Lives) — and he has been her Mon-Wed-Fri “husband” for over five years. We see the couple in their new poster, with Jung Ji-ho’s caption saying that Sang-eun spends her Mon-Wed-Fri evenings with him, while Sang-eun’s caption announces that she only does marriage without love in the equation.
Things start to get more complicated when Sang-eun takes on a new client: chaebol celeb Kang Hae-jin, who is played by Kim Jae-young (Reflection of You). He becomes her Tues-Thurs-Sat contract husband. The posters are not shy about the different dynamics of our two couples, because while Sang-eun seems to command the power in the Mon-Wed-Fri couple, she seems flustered when she’s a part of the Tue-Thurs-Sat couple. And, I mean, if you have Kim Jae-young back-hugging you, this is an understandable response.
The final poster features our fake groom face-off, and the two wonder when they’ll find love instead of mere “marriage.” It doesn’t take a genius to expect the two to fall in love with her for realsies and vie for her heart — and her non-professional attention on Sunday, which is her only day free of wife cosplay.
Written by Ha Gu-dam with PD Nam Sung-woo (My Roommate Is a Gumiho, Old School Intern) at the helm — which bodes well for this being as cheeky as it should be — tvN’s Love in Contract premieres next month on September 21.
