Jealousy heats up in new Love in Contract teaser
tvN’s upcoming rom-com Love in Contract is basically drowning us in promos at this point. The hype is sky-high, but there also comes a point where one has seen enough clips from the drama’s key moments and would rather not be spoiled and just watch the drama. Or is that just me? (It’s the reason why I much prefer high-concept teasers instead of these footage trailers).
Anyway, Love in Contract stars Park Min-young (Forecasting Love and Weather) as wife-for-hire Choi Sang-eun. Quick cuts in the new teaser show us how she’s not stopped by tradition, culture, or anything — the woman seems like a chameleon that can blend in anywhere. That’s a gift for sure, but also, I’m somehow not sorry all the fakery starts to bite her in the behind?
Sang-eun has a long-time client in Jung Ji-ho — played by Go Kyung-pyo (Private Lives) — who is her Mon-Wed-Fri husband. All seems to be going peachy until a new client turns up: superstar Kang Hae-jin, who is played by Kim Jae-young (Reflection of You). Let the love triangle begin! *waves cape*
The new teaser sheds some light on not only Ji-ho’s mysterious persona, but the fact that Kang Hae-jin has first love baggage going on. Okay, which hero has known her from childhood and/or shares forgotten history with her? (Only half joking.)
As the teaser progresses, we see Ji-ho ask Sang-eun if she’s afraid of him, and you could cut the tension between them with a knife as they stand in his kitchen. Later, we see Ji-ho jealous of Sang-eun and Hae-jin, and he interrupts them with, “Honey, I’m hungry.”
Written by Ha Gu-da, and directed by PD Nam Sung-woo (My Roommate Is a Gumiho, Old School Intern), tvN’s Love in Contract premieres September 21.
