Love in Contract is not as simple as it seems in new video teaser
After scaring (or is that scarring) us with their character poster drop, tvN released the next teaser for Love in Contract, and despite everything I’m still sold. The cheeky tone and comedy come across in the small snippets we are given, and I can’t wait to see more.
The drama stars Park Min-young (Forecasting Love and Weather) as our multi-tasking heroine Choi Sang-eun. She offers contract marriage services for men who need to get married for appearances only. Her Mon-Wed-Fri contract husband is Jung Ji-ho — played by Go Kyung-pyo (Private Lives) — but their contract-wedded bliss is interrupted when a chaebol celeb played by Kim Jae-young (Reflection of You) takes up her Tues-Thurs-Sat slot. Oh, the horror.
The new (technically third) video teaser opens with fun music and a montage of Sang-eun and Ji-ho bowing to each other and cosplaying a married couple on the days that Sang-eun is contracted. The teaser and song continue through the days of the week until we hit Saturday. A record-scratch sound effect introduces our chaebol celeb Kang Hae-jin and he asks Sang-eun to sign a contract with him. She seems surprised, and he tells her they should act natural… while demonstrating the most artificial forced laugh ever. Oh boy, I think I’m going to like Kim Jae-young being funny for a change.
Speaking of funny, the next cut is of a straight-faced and grave Sang-eun explaining to the workers at the wedding hall that she just got divorced on Sunday but she’s getting married today. Oh boy, I think I’m going to like Park Min-young being funny again. Forecasting Love and Weather was so bland and humorless — I hope this drama lets her sparkle come out!
The teaser ends with some more quick cuts of our action to come, while Sang-eun announces in voiceover that: “The moment you need to get married, contact me.”
Written by Ha Gu-da, with PD Nam Sung-woo (My Roommate Is a Gumiho, Old School Intern) at the helm, Love in Contract premieres September 21 on tvN.
