Love in Contract: Episodes 1-2

The rom-com queen is back, and she brought her fashionista closet with her! Her return also comes with the old-school contract marriage and its hijinks, love triangles, lots of secrets, the “we met in the past” trope, and an opening sequence that I absolutely love. I’m afraid this show already has me in a chokehold.

Love In Contract: Episodes 1-2

I act like I’m okay, but deep down, I want to be our heroine CHOI SANG-EUN (Park Min-young) who lives the dream life of always coming home to fancy dinners prepared by her attractive, rich, and well-mannered husband, JUNG JI-HO (Go Kyung-pyo). Ji-ho is the perfect husband to Sang-eun, and everything about their five-year marriage is perfect – except there’s a little contract that binds them together. And no, I’m not talking about a marriage certificate.

Sang-eun is a professional wife with an array of clients. Whether you need a trophy wife to boost your self-esteem in front of your tacky friends, a proficient golfer wife to help you land a contract, a wife just to get your family off your back, or so your grandmother can pass away peacefully — Sang-eun is there to help you out. For a fee, of course, and there’s an extra charge if you want to register the marriage. Twelve divorces down the line with a dozen other skills and certifications to boot, Sang-eun is pretty much committed to her job.

Love In Contract: Episodes 1-2

Sang-eun is not all about the money, though, and she once married a client, WOO GWANG-NAM (Kang Hyung-seok) because he didn’t want to disappoint his parents by coming out as gay. They’re amicably divorced now, and live as roommates and best friends with a joint dream of relocating abroad, to fall in love for real. I love their relationship so much! Destination Canada is in view for them, and they happily countdown to Sang-eun’s upcoming retirement. Except retirement means ending her marriage arrangement with Ji-ho.

Their arrangement is simple: she is only required to have dinners with him on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. It’s really cool when you think about getting paid to eat fancy meals, but it’s also unsettling that Ji-ho’s life is shrouded in secrecy. There’s a woman he appears to be stalking, and he’s a man of very few words. Seriously, they don’t even talk about the weather over dinner! According to Ji-ho, “The perfect conversation skill to not reveal yourself is silence.” And if that doesn’t creep you out, I don’t know what else will.

During a Timid People Anonymous session of sorts, Ji-ho tells the others that his job doesn’t make people feel good, and he usually just watches them plead. I start to think okay, maybe he’s a judge, a prosecutor, or working some other law enforcement job, right?

But then he also says things like his job is to end someone’s everyday routine, and now he’s giving serial killer vibes. I mean, the woman he was stalking ends up dead, and he doesn’t seem to be affected by the news? Come on! Now I’m not so sure I want to be Sang-eun anymore. Besides, there are only so many quiet dinners I can take before I bail on such a boring marriage.

Thankfully, this is where KANG HAE-JIN (Kim Jae-young) comes in like a ray of sunshine! Hae-jin is an actor, and unlike Ji-ho, the only secret he keeps from the rest of the world is that he’s the son of a chaebol (Kangjin) group. Hae-jin thinks rich people are crazy, and considering he named his cat after his first love – a girl named JAMIE who he met just once – I’m inclined to agree. I can’t even blame his ex (cameo by Nana) who broke up with him because she thought Jamie the cat was his other woman. Who video calls a cat all the time and calls her “honey” anyway?

Love In Contract: Episodes 1-2

But the men in Sang-eun’s life are not the only ones with secrets. Sang-eun is also the daughter of another chaebol group (Eena), and the name she’s called at home is — wait for it — Jamie. Yes, the one and only. From childhood, she was stiflingly managed by a director at Eena group, YOO MI-HO (Jin Kyung). When Sang-eun was 20, she walked out on her family after violently ruining an arranged marriage meeting with Hae-jin’s elder brother KANG SUN-JIN (Oh Ryoong). Sang-eun’s actions cost Mi-ho her job, but on the bright side, Hae-jin witnessed the whole scene and was instantly wowed by Sang-eun. Lol.

Since then, Sang-eun has been sending Mi-ho money every month, but make no mistake, the women are not friends. Sang-eun is merely paying Mi-ho back for raising her, and after 13 years, she decides to retire and cut her off. Sang-eun is ready to rub it in Mi-ho’s face, but Mi-ho steals her thunder, and tells her to stop sending the money. Ooof! However, Mi-ho is broke after spending all the money (and the occasional checks from Eena’s chairman) on the dozens of luxury items scattered around her tiny studio apartment. At some point, she even attempts suicide, and I wonder what her story is.

Love In Contract: Episodes 1-2

Anyway, back to our wife for hire, Sang-eun is reluctant to end things with Ji-ho. And when he suddenly brings up a divorce, she gets upset because how dare he unilaterally decide to end their marriage? Turns out that earlier on, Ji-ho saw a ticket to Canada in her purse, and thought it’ll be best to end things so she can chase her dreams of falling in love abroad. But right now, destination Canada is on pause as Sang-eun insists that she will go through with their arrangement for the rest of the month because she’s a professional. Sure, Jan.

Previously, Gwang-nam attempted to make a move on Hae-jin while hanging out with Sang-eun at a lounge. Hae-jin’s manager, YOO JUNG-HWAN (Kim Hyun-mok) mistook him for a reporter, and Gwang-nam ended up thinking Jung-hwan and Hae-jin are involved with each other. Heh. Hae-jin quietly extracted himself from the hilarious mix-up, and he didn’t get to see Sang-eun. But there’s plenty of time for them to run into each other, as he soon moves into the apartment above Ji-ho’s. Okay, this is going to be fun!

Our trio eventually runs into each other in the funniest of ways. First, Ji-ho goes to pick up a package downstairs at the same time Jamie the cat is dropped off from a staycation at a cat hotel (seriously?!). Jamie is in a delivery box carried by Hae-jin, whose face is plastered on the delivery van as the brand’s ambassador. Naturally, Ji-ho thinks Hae-jin is the dispatch driver, and in a struggle for the box, Jamie jumps out. Jamie refuses to return to her owner, and Ji-ho has to carry the cat to Hae-jin’s apartment.

They meet Sang-eun in the elevator, and Hae-jin is shocked to see her, but he quickly comports himself as she obviously doesn’t recognize him. Besides, Ji-ho calls her Sang-eun, not Jamie, and Hae-jin sees matching wedding rings on their fingers. Sang-eun is miffed that Ji-ho didn’t prepare dinner, and in her annoyance, she doesn’t recall that she insisted on making the meals for the remaining time they have left on the contract. When she finally remembers, she scrambles to make dinner – and a whole mess in the kitchen while she’s at it.

Love In Contract: Episodes 1-2

With Sang-eun’s actions, you’d almost think that she’s in love with Ji-ho, but of course, she denies this to Gwang-nam. I understand her, though. Five years is more than enough time to get used to a routine with someone even if the other party is the secretive Ji-ho. And while he gives me serial killer vibes, he’s also giving psychotic vibes to Hae-jin. Because who carries pictures of a murdered woman and goes out at night to practice stabbing techniques?

Hae-jin is traumatized on witnessing this, and he begins to worry about his first love who is married to the psychopath. Said first love only comes around once in two days, and he once saw her leaving the apartment without her ring. A murderer husband and a cheating wife make for a confusing couple to Hae-jin, but worry trumps confusion, and he tries to warn Sang-eun about Ji-ho. Like a good wife, Sang-eun refuses to listen to anything negative about her husband. But Hae-jin’s words get to her, and she becomes curious about her husband’s life.

Ji-ho doesn’t think his job is anybody’s business, and tells Sang-eun that she’s free to make something up the next time Hae-jin asks. Besides, she’ll soon stop coming around, and Hae-jin won’t be able to bug her about it anymore. With the way Ji-ho acts, you’d think he’s also not affected by their impending divorce. Pfft. All Sang-eun wants is to be acknowledged as the best wife by the best husband client she’s ever had, but it looks like she will not be getting that from Ji-ho. So, she decides that their next dinner appointment will be their last.

The day finally comes, and while Sang-eun is about to ring the bell to Ji-ho’s apartment, Hae-jin comes around. Like a good neighbor, he cannot keep his mouth shut about the potential danger he thinks she is walking into. But as Sang-eun prepares to give him a reply, the door opens and Ji-ho pokes his head out with a, “Honey, I’m hungry.” *Covers mouth to muffle excited squeals* Well, I’m not the only one, because Sang-eun is also taken by the “honey” bit, as it’s acknowledgement — finally!

What a way to wrap up a such a lovely premiere week! I was expecting a light and fluffy rom-com – which the drama delivers on – but I wasn’t expecting the whole backstory, and secrets and stuff. Hello, makjang, is that you? Heh. Not that I mind, though, as long as they balance both parts. I assumed the fake wife thing was just for dramatic effect to push the plot, until I saw Sang-eun walk away from the arranged marriage. Now it makes sense that after being groomed with the sole purpose to be married, she’d choose to profit off that same arrangement, but on her own terms. I also see why she genuinely doesn’t want to be bound by that institution, and it’s almost a miracle that she even has a dream of falling in love at all.

I find Ji-ho intriguing, and I know he’s not a psychopath or anything because it would be out of place in a rom-com (but hey, feel free to surprise me, Show). I want us to quickly get past the whole mystery of what his job is, though, so we can move on to other things like why is he such a man of few words? Why doesn’t he allow people to get close to him? And what is it about his past that he’s avoiding?

Love In Contract: Episodes 1-2

As for Hae-jin, while he appears to be so carefree, he’s obviously very lonely at heart. For some reason, he distances himself from his family, he doesn’t seem to have friends aside from his manager and his brother, and his cat doesn’t even return his affections. Thankfully, he has reconnected with his first love again, although she’s now “married.” But for someone who still went back to warn Sang-eun about Ji-ho even after being told off the first time, giving up on his feelings/instincts isn’t in Hae-jin’s dictionary.

We know that he’ll soon become one of Sang-eun’s clients, but I wonder how that’ll work out considering Jamie the first love might have an allergy to Jamie the cat. Heh. And this brings me to one of the highlights of a classic K-drama rom-com: the love triangle! I’m not a super fan of either actor, and for now, I’m undecided on which ship to board. So it’s left for their characters to win me over in the coming weeks — which cannot come soon enough. This is me impatiently counting down the days, because I need more episodes ASAP. *grubby hands*

Thanks @unit. This was not the rom com I was expecting nor was I expecting the multiple marriages and divorce sheets. The pretend mum job was terrible as was the high kick to the man while wearing a mini skirt, what was that? I loved that she used her one day off to do the additions for the girl’s picture and was it a homage to the star she made for Healer🤨

I also couldn’t work out what job was connected to solving murders but couldn’t be spoken about, had good pay but had regular hours that allowed regular meal dates three days a week. I bet the fantasy she had about the night club will come true in some form and I am intrigued to know how her retirement results in a marriage to the actor.

The disdain from the cat was true to life as was his determination to win the cat over despite the numerous signs that it will never happen. The cat blatantly going with a stranger when humans step away from him was the ultimate slap in the face.

Side note I was not impressed with ‘Mr perfect husband’ going through her bag while she was in the toilet how was that appropriate or in character when he maintains a distance in every other way. Who carries flight details around weeks before the flight when there are e tickets to print just beforehand.

I loved the gay best friend relationship and the jealousy from the one night stand because they really do present as the perfect couple as friends comfortable with each other’s company and aware of each other’s flaws.

Looking forward to next week’s episodes but hoping they don’t do a Today’s webtoon and stretch out the mystery like the unspoken job for weeks and then have the reveal add nothing to the story when it could have been discussed openly. Also unnecessary noble idiocy and a love triangle from week one could become old very quickly.

I thought it was obvious he's probably a judge... Lol

He says his job is to a. change the routine of people's lives for good and b. give out verdicts all day. He doesn't have to communicate well with epipel because his job (apparently) doesn't require it.
The "misdirect" with the knife and the photos is him acting out moves to see if the testimony and evidence is true or points to anything.

There's a few other options that would also work but that's my first thought. Nothing about this show requires it to be an accurate representation of whatever his job is anyway.

Pathologist was my first choice and then prosecutor. Changing someone’s routine I thought he is either saving someone from false imprisonment or making sure the right person goes to prison. It is something that involves logic and working independently as he chooses to limit his communication to the necessary only. I assume his communication style is to prevent misunderstandings and his words being used against him. However, he causes offensive and people misjudge him all the time. He may also have learnt that people don’t listen unless there is something in it for them.

The reason I'm (currently) more convinced by judge over prosecutor, or pathologist for that matter, was his line about issuing verdicts.
A judge issues a verdict that will change someone's life forever, depending on the charge. That's also what you associate most with a judge, his ruling.
A pathologist or mortician or medical examiner might issue one, to give cause of death, but that feels more of a semantic stretch also.
*shrugs*

@sicarius I think you are right but the way he behaves I just can’t see how he could work with a team and most dramas show the judges working in threes. Watching Ms Hammurabi they have a lot of discussions but maybe his logic would be valued despite his poor social skills. It is a drama though so…
Also a top judge would be earning stupid money and explain how he is able to live where the rich and famous live and driving a top spec Audi suv. It would also explain why the cousin stopped talking when he threatened him.

Oh yes, judge does sound like a real possibility. My thoughts were that he was a writer of murder mysteries. But judge seems to fit better. The part that confuses me is I think the woman he was following around was the woman who was murdered on the news. That is a bit too much of a coincidence for either a judge or a writer.

For some reason, I assumed insurance agent. LOL😂😂

I agree - plus, his group leader counselor lady mentions that everybody in the courthouse discusses his lack of social skills. He has to be a judge, or maybe a prosecutor. Someone whose turf is the courthouse, anyway.

I like this show so far - there's enough "nutso" in it to keep me amused, and even if it's trope city (which PMY show isn't, I challenge you to find one) it's still fun. I'm definitely cheering for no-game-maybe-serial-killer-dude over the actor guy, he is such a caricature. I would be even if I wasn't already a Go Kyung-Pyo fan.

So Jamie the Cat is going to be unfaithful to Hae-jin with Ji-ho while Jamie the Human is going to be unfaithful to Ji-ho with Hae-jin. Awesome. We need more dramas with cat love triangles.

@reply1988, I was also taken by surprise at the dominance of makjang elements. Hae-jin’s dismay at being unwittingly cast in a movie that targets his family’s business mirrors mine at getting a melo when we were promised a rom-com. There were moments when I thought I was watching 'What's Wrong With My Mother-in-Law.'

Ji-ho doesn’t wear his wedding ring in public, but does when he’s alone and expecting Sang-eun. This is more than role-play for him - but hey, we knew that.

The elevator in Ji-ho’s building is remarkably poky, even for Korea. (Elevators are all really slow in Korea, right?) I’d be complaining to the management if I had time for entire drama scenes between the first and second floors.

Thanks, @unit!

👆Loved this so much because it conjured up a Be Melo moment with the writers all sitting round and saying ‘no wait, let’s call the cat Jamie and then it becomes a love triangle on a whole new level’. I can imagine they will insert scenes of Jamie the cat purposely sitting on Jamie the human’s lap every time she visits just because the cat knows she is allergic and it will make Haejin jealous so fulfils Jamie the cat’s need to play power games 🤣🤣

@unit thanks for sharing 🤣🤣this right here should be the group name on their website: ‘Timid People Anonymous’. I didn’t understand the purpose of that group because it would be more effective for him to have a personal one to one session and do role plays with the coach/therapist rather than sitting in a crowded room that would raise anxiety and lead to shut down. Once he had it down he would go to a group activity/night class in something he was interested in.

I also didn’t get the need to wear a wedding ring in the building where it would be odd to have your wife only turn up on certain days. There are marriages where the couple live separately so they have space when they need solitude and meet up regularly when they don’t. But who would believe that was a proper marriage. Why does he not have the ring on for work? What’s the purpose of the marriage? Is it that he just doesn’t want to eat alone all week as food is a social activity and he used to do it with someone special who then died and left him with his relatives hence nasty cousin coming to cash in.

My wife and I watched the first two episodes on Viki, which we recently had got into. We liked What's Wrong with Secretary Kim and saw it had the same actress, but this was very different to say the least. I can't believe this was advertised as a comedy. But that doesn't mean it isn't interesting as a lot of people are saying.

I had read about these kind of escort services in Japan, where men hired girlfriends, and it was understood that sex was not part of the deal, and it was just for public dates. It seems she has taken it up a notch, though, fake marrying and then meeting in the weird guy's apartment.

My wife and I were wondering if they were hinting that she's a prostitute after all? Did that woman who was going to kill herself help pimp the main woman character out, because she too was an escort? It seemed like that's what was suggested when the lead said "I'm just doing what you taught me."

It is sort of fascinating, in a sad and creepy way, though---kind of like Jack the Ripper story. We'll watch some more to see if the other guy can save her from being murdered.

I'm thinking whoever marketed this as a romantic comedy was worried that the story of a high class escort falling in love with one of her clients whose a serial murder would not get too many people to watch!

You are probably right, though my wife was a little upset because of the way the episodes weren't as advertised, so I might be watching this one alone, LOL.
But I did like what was said below, that the sex elements of her story would never really be brought out because people would be offended but the serial killer violence stuff is okay. I think this is true of a lot of the U.S. shows we watch, especially on Netflix--they call them "dark" comedies and they always involve a lot of murder. Of course our favorite show lately has been "Only Murders in the Building" and that's a comedy with murder, so I guess we are the same!

Thanks Reply1988 for clearing things up about the woman. I am not used to reading captions, so I sure missed a lot, and I'm also sure you are right about the guy not being the murderer.

I'll say this one more time and then I'll shut up about it. If this had not been labeled a comedy I would have been more open to these episodes so I'll give it another chance knowing more about what it really is. thanks again.

So this is why she turned to the escort business. But who was that woman who she was sending money to? I assumed that she was kind of a "madam" demanding a monthly cut from the woman's jobs, but also an escort herself, since she lived in a shabby apartment with a lot of fashionable clothes and stuff, and also because she was going to commit suicide.

You know the more I think about this show, the more I think I am going to join my wife and not watch the rest of it. But now I am curious about whether the guy is a murderer or not or whether the show was just faking and that was the whole "joke." I still don't think its that funny, though.

Miho the woman who she was paying money to seemed to hold a significant post in a company (Sangmoo said she needed to leave for him to get the promotion) and she was responsible for ensuring Sangeun had the best education etc. and was able to attend events with the offspring of the chaebols so she was not hidden out of sight. When she chose to leave without fulfilling her side of the bargain; marrying for the merger and acquisition benefits, Miho demanded she pay back the money they had spent providing her with perks of being part of the elite club. Sangeun had calculated how much she had to pay back and therefore when the amount was reached decided to say she was going to stop paying the money. Miho already decided she was going to commit suicide so did not want the money to be sent needlessly so told her to stop payments.

Jiho is way too calculated to be practising his moves in a public place if he is a trained killer or a serial killer. If he had already committed the murder why would he need to be practising in the shared hallway and using the pictures as reference material? He was trying to see the positioning the murderer took with bars etc in the way. What we don’t know is why he has access to the police photos.

The woman seems to be a governess, who was well paid and used to a certain standard of living. In the olden days, they were generally "well-born" women whose family has fallen on hard times, and being a governess for wealthy children was an acceptable job. I imagine unsuccessfully marrying off your charge would get you fired, so that's why she was living in a glorified closet apartment.

Loved the opening episodes! I was not expecting the dark turn things took so quickly, with a potential killer as part of the love triangle. It's not as frothy as I first expected, and is all the better for it. As I was on the Ji Ho ship, it's a new one for me if he turns out to be deadly. Although I'm not ready to jump ship yet! 😁
Loving the outfits and the changes, having some serious wardrobe envy, and a brilliant relationship between the FL and her best friend. So far give me more! Thanks @unit!

I found almost everybody in this annoying.
The Makjang-esque backstory for her and the melo-trauma backstory for him are some of the most unneeded I've seen of late imo.
The logistics of her job make no sense.
Hae Jin is a bratty child.
The directing is frustratingly awful.
Whenever I see Sang Eun I get Bright Lights by 30 Seconds To Mars stuck in my head, and not really in a good way. (indeed, actually a very apt song for this show.)
Surprisingly, I actually liked Ji Ho the most of everyone, despite everything, but I have 0 confidence in the script to take this anywhere worthwhile tbh.
I'll probably watch this to the half way mark as a trash watch and then drop lmao.

He, of course, has some tragic backstory that makes him antisocial. Perhaps his first love was murdered by a serial killer or a slimy chaebol, in which case it will probably turn out to be Hae-jin's creepy brother.

Okay, at least no vampires have appeared (yet). 😉
But episode 1 left me rather perplexed, somehow a lot of things were messy. But maybe it only seemed that way to me because I was busy trying to understand who Sang-eun was or is married to. Can you get divorced so quickly in South Korea?

I liked episode 2 better, but I'm still not really convinced. Unlike what I expected, this drama is not fluffy, but has more of dark humour. Normally I love this kind of humour, but here it doesn't work for me. I will watch a few more episodes and then decide if I will continue to follow the series.

None of the MLs could really impress me so far. Hae-jin seems too immature, and I feel no chemistry between Ji-ho and Sang-eun. Even though Ji-ho is portrayed as a mysterious character, I find him boring. My interest would be piqued if he was actually a murderer, but I guess the chances are pretty slim.
So far my favourite characters then are just the cat and the gay friend.

100% agree. I am all for a fake marriage trope but this just seemed so implausible. The scene at the wedding venue where she was recognized as the bride who got married the week before or where her ex-sister-in-law recognizes her at the restaurant seems like it would happen all too often to make her business viable/believable. On the other hand, I would be all in for a show about her gay bestie/ex-husband living his best life in Canada, escaping the judgement of his older sisters and finding true love. Hey, maybe there's a sub-plot where his niece moves in with him after getting kicked out by her mom and the cat somehow ends up in her bags.

My interest would be piqued if he was actually a murderer, but I guess the chances are pretty slim.

I do not think this drama has that much guts or intelligence though it is what I too want to happen.

Go Kyung Po's role looks like a continuation from his other drama "Private Lives" and Park Min Young's is similar to her double life from " Her Private Life". Ohh looks like the director or production cast these two based on their previous work and with the coincidence of "Private" in their drama titles🙄🙄

My wishes for the characters:
✔️ Sang-eun is a chaebol contract wife (prediction from the preview posts, but I’m kind of stunned it’s true)
- Ji-ho really is a serial killer
- Hae-jin is a vampire
- The stray-cat-hating ahjussi is the killer of the woman on the stairs
- Sang-eun is caught by multiple former in-laws simultaneously and jailed for fraud
- Jamie the Cat is the real FL, and she and Gwang-nam are the OTP

Don’t disappoint me, show.

I had the same question, @nefret. I thought the FL even said once during the episode that she has to time the weddings and divorces correctly, since you can't be married to more than 1 person at any given time. So....if she has been married to Ji-ho for the past 5 years, she isn't supposed to be able to accept any client who wants a marriage as part of the deal, right? So, then how did she manage two weddings in the same hall while also being married to him? Can someone in SoKo have a wedding, but then not officially register their marriage? Am genuinely curious about this. Here in the US, you can have a wedding function, but if it is not done after getting a marriage certificate, it isn't "legal" at all. I know this show requires a suspension of belief, but their own rules has to make sense within the story! So, a little disappointed they couldn't get this detail sorted out at the very beginning :(

In Germany, there is a so-called separation year, i.e. you have to live apart for one year before your marriage can be divorced, unless there are serious reasons for a quick divorce. So here it would be even more difficult to get so many divorces in a short time. But according to Google, this separation year does not seem to exist in South Korea.

Can someone in SoKo have a wedding, but then not officially register their marriage?

Yes. Just holding a ceremony at a wedding hall doesn't make the marriage legal, although acting like a married couple afterward may have legal implications if it shows the couple established a de facto marriage. If they didn't, 'divorce' may be as simple as no longer acting like (or pretending to be) a couple. Sang-eun can't accept a client who wants a legal, registered marriage. Her saying "we got divorced" is just a figure of speech in the case of the two weddings within a week. Since presumably they're not registered, just ceremonies for show, no actual legal marriage occurred that would conflict with her legal marriage to Ji-ho, no legal divorce is needed, she's not committing bigamy, and I doubt the show's writers put as much thought into all that as we just did.

The fraud implied in holding ceremonies that result in her and her 'grooms' getting piles of wedding gifts and money is a whole other kettle of fish.

Here's a Reddit thread that seems to have a good explanation of the legal aspects.

You see that slap Nana landed on Kang Haejin, she should have it landed on Han Bi-soo from Oh! My Ladylord. That was what came to mind when that scene played and I just replaced Kim Jae-young with Lee Min-ki in my head in that very moment. I think I have found closure for Nana's Oh Joo-in.

Your final still for Jung Ji-ho🤤. That look is everything romantick. Does it help that I have a ship already but my ship is giving serial killer vibes🥲. He's dressed in a suit. Do serial killers go about in suits? They're casual right? I want to believe he's a private investigator or profiler of some sorts. It's only profilers that try to reenact a crime act 🥺.

Finally finally, PMY is introduced as a chaebol heiress right at the premiere episodes. It does give more insight to her character Sang-eun. It would be interesting if she's an ordinary lady but chaebol gives it a more interesting outlook.

Messy Sang-eun in the kitchen🤭. Sorry Ji-ho 🤭😅.

Lmao.
As much as I personally think it would actually be hilarious if this turned out to be a dysfunctional black rom com of sorts where our FL ends up becoming a housewife to a serial killer and they live happily ever after, dramaland is WAY too craven to actually pull off that drama and this most certainly isn't it either way.

Typically, from my experience, non 100% thrillers, so, melos or rom coms with a lite murderer seasoning applied, always chicken out on making their leads actually murderers;
Let Me Hear Your Song, Link, even the One and Only did it with the FL, (even if the ML there was actually an assassin lol... TOaO was weird pffft), or they make them a murderer but in the wrong way (Hundred Million Stars)...
So I think you're safe.

Although, as personal preference, I think I DO deserve some well written dramas of assassins falling in love. Ahem. ;)

I never get this fascination with assassins and serial killers. I mean, people write a normal male lead completely off for like, a wrist grab, or turning up uninvited, but somehow killing people isn't a big deal? I'm always left scratching my head at how excitedly people root for a serial killer or an assassin.

@midnight
You raise... an interesting topic that I could answer in multiple different ways... But Sicarius, itself, literally means Assassin in Latin so ... I am not really sure how you expect me to answer it either, to be honest.
Do you want to know WHY I like assassins and keep making jokes like those above?
Do you want to genuinely know my take on main characters that have maybe killed a man?
Murder, and killing, and death is never not a big deal, but that doesn't mean it can't be used in interesting (more interesting than your average kdrama serial killer I might add, that I have little love lost for) narrative ways, lol.

1

No, I actually do get the joking, and I always like reading your half-joking-half-serious posts even about serial killers.
And I totally agree about more interesting narratives.
But it is not just you, and it is not just about being interesting.
Cast a pretty man with a mischievous smile in a serial killer role and people will do anything to justify his deserving to be happy or in love or forgiven.
Now have the same actor in a lead role kissing a woman and people will have long threads arguing if it was mutual consent or not.
It feels very weird and uncomfortable to me.

Ignore me, probably. I'm neither a good writer to process my thoughts into words, nor a psychologist to understand people's thoughts I guess.

I have no issues with serial killers falling in love and living happily ever after in other countries movie industries. Love is a motivation for change. But it's kdrama here, and two male leads gunning for the FL. I don't think we have a SFL here so you see why I worry about how 'unfair' it is that my ship is giving the serial killer vibes. And I don't think love will convince the audience that he merits the FL even after he's done all the needed work.

@midnight You do raise a good point.

For me, I can separate real life from a drama and also understand that there are only so many minutes in an episode to convey big moments and story progression.

I also love a good antihero or villain in various forms of media. They are difficult to write well, and even harder to humanize, so it's lovely when I find myself cheering on evil, if that makes sense. It's also a "safe" way to explore a lifestyle that hopefully most people never will experience.

Of course in real life, serial killers should be put under the jail. And full, informed consent must be given every time for any gender.

3

not sure if I'm into this. not feeling any chemistry between the two maisn leads, which is a first for park minyoung - I usually buy any pairing she has lol. I usually don't like love triangle, but I can get into them when the story puts the two love interests with similar chances. I know its only two episodes, but it's already obvious that KJY is already way behind in the race for her heart lol

I liked that she ended up friends with one of her clients, but I was really confused with the whole canada thing. for a moment I thought the guy had gone to canada and told her he would wait, but then he was still living with her. maybe I was just not paying attention anymore lol

anyway, I will give this one more week and decide if I should keep watching. I want to say I don't expect a serial killer to be the leading guy, but honestly.... korean dramas have shown us that they can mix genres as if its no big deal so who knows.. I hope the mystery is just a joke on us and the drama will soon reveal he's just an introvert guy with a peculiar job which doesnt involved murdering people.

I wasn't wowed, but I'm liking this show enough to continue. EP 1 was definitely not enough to give an impression of the show overall. EP 2 was better. Liked the bits of meta references.

I like the friendship between Sang Eun and Gwang Nam. They're cute and they looked close. Hope they have a good amount of screentime and his own story gets developed well.

For a moment, I thought Ji Ho was a prosecutor. I'm hoping he's something else. He looked like an introvert so I want to give him a chance and see more of him.

Hae Jin video calling his cat was an unexpected, but funny scene. Like him, I hope to see more of her face!!

I wasn't expecting the first love trope. I bet Hae Jin is still the second lead though. Dx His reaction to his possibly murderous neighbor is understandable based on what he saw so far. And then his first love is connected to the guy. Looking forward to his next moves about this situation, heh.

I don't know about Sang Eun yet. She cracked me up with her English comeback at that reunion guy. Her venom towards Mi Ho is interesting.... I wonder how she was able to get away from her chaebol family. I don't know how evil or shady Mi Ho is, but I'm curious and wondering why another group wants her. (Gosh, I've seen this actress in a shady role recently though.)

The epilogue would have been enough if it had been just Sang Eun spending her Sunday in her own way. The scene of her with the kids at the school was too extra. I was a little miffed that she decorated on top of the kid's artwork even if the kid liked it.

On a completely different tangent I think the actor role would have been great for Kim Youngdae. He is very good at comedic roles and I think the face profile is too different between the two current male leads even the gay best friend looks more similar to Gyungpyo. It just seems like it’s too obvious she is going to end up with the social misfit because the actor is too different in looks and character to be considered a realistic alternative. Usually, I prefer the second male lead because their character outshines the lead or I don’t mind either way. In this case I have not warmed to the actor as he has no redeeming features and seems to have been an issue even as a youth.

No worries at all. I am slow watching, because you know I have issues with the palace politics and killings so stopped watching this probably over a year ago after the massacre in the first episode. I was encouraged to come back to it by another beanie as they said it’s not that bad for most of the drama. So being forewarned is exactly what I need to get through these dramas.

Your warnings got me through the tough parts of Healer too. Now, I watch while I am rowing so I can just about deal with the stress but I am on the home run of last few mins of episode 18 and it’s got bad again😐 hopefully will finish it today as I need to do a long distance rowing session and I am desperate to see how it ends. I am glad you promoted it because I would have blanked because of the violence and thriller elements.

Ooooh, Kim Young-dae would have absolutely killed it as the second male lead! But the role is too similar to his recent one in Sh**ting Stars. I'm still Team KJY here but I realize that GKP is destined to get the girl for the reasons you cite, plus he's already had shirtless scenes and that's usually the clincher. There's still time to make Hae-jin looser and more fun, the way he should have been from the start, so he can be more appealing as an alternative to Mr. Grumpy.

The first 2 episodes were so weird. I have no idea how her job works. She was married with Ji-Ho for 5 years but has other jobs? I mean playing the girlfriend looks more logical but the wife? Being divorced in Korea is not a very good thing, so the guy could look in front of his friends but after what? He's the same but divorced?
I didn't really like any characters. I found so weird she didn't want to stop to be Ji-Ho's wife... it's kinda intrusive to say no, I will continue.

The only character I liked was her friend/roomate.

I started writing ‘the gay best mate/flat mate is a first for me in a K drama’ then I remembered the brother from Be Melo and the gay club owner brother from Love with flaws and realised it’s a low profile way to bring a gay character into a mainstream drama.

Therefore I am now betting the actual first will be that he is going to be front and centre throughout the drama with comedic high jinks as he likes the actor too. I wonder if they will go there with this one and actually have the second male lead settle down with a viable alternative instead of a broken heart as this time he ends up with the female leads best mate. 🍿

Park Min Young lost so much weight that her cheeks cave in when she stiffens her jaw which to me makes her appear sick and unhealthy. I do not understand K-beauty standards because this is the second time I see a K-actress after Seo Hyun Jin, lose so much weight.

Regarding the story, strangely the OTP scenes, their jobs and personality are a mix of their old dramas and I only enjoyed the roommate and Jamie (1) aka the cat scenes, but no worries because a lot of new dramas that aired this week and a bunch will premiere in coming weeks , so I can always drop this.

I agree about Park Min Young appearing sick and unhealthy with the weight loss. Anorexic is the word that comes to mind as I see her bones jutting out sharply. To me that is not attractive at all. She was so much prettier at her weight in Healer. That might be reason enough for me to drop the drama as it makes me uncomfortable looking at her.

A decent start. I did not find much chemistry (atleast for now) between the leads. FL has more chemistry with her gay bestfriend. The episodes were okay but nothing really stood out to make it a compelling watch. Its not engaging enough to make you sit and watch. And I felt something different about PMY's acting than her previous works. I will give it one more week to see how the story develops and I hope it gets better next week.

The premises is absurd and too over the top. Logically speaking nothing make sense and we have to accept things because writer says so e.g. Jamie is supposed to be daughter of this hotshot family but she goes around being professional wife. Shouldn't that group take issue with it?

We just have to role with the setup - A professional wife/ heiress, a taciturn contract husband with mysterious job, a star/chaebol son with weird attachment to a girl whom he saw only once in his life, and a cat being cat play house together. It's too weird but I am willing to see how this will pan out.

I'll keep watching for now, but this might be one of the many shows I abandon around episode 10 or so.

I'm not sure why I watched ep 2, since the first was not really funny (and this was my expectation for this drama).
Maybe for the mystery of ML job ?
Jung Ji-Ho is the silent ML to silence all silent ML.
And though he has done nearly nothing, he does have creepy vibes. This is the first ML that I see that is not presented sympatically. I mean, even when the ML is not really a good guy you are supposed to be rooting for him. We have seen Vincenzo kill, but he is presented as likeable. Here Jung Ji-Ho is out of sync with everything. The only thing he has for him is his cooking.
Ok, I'd love a cooking and cleaning husband. But the bare and dark appartment ? nope.

There are so many plot holes already in this drama !
How and why will she take on a new client if she has decided to retire ? (stop her job in ep 1 after paying a debt... very What's wrong with secretary Kim).

A head scratch, like why have people assumed he was a serial killer? I got low-key 50 Shades of Grey lead guy vibes :3.

Also, this plot is darker than it appears here. I mean, she's essentially someone whose life was owned by Madame Yoo (who seems like her pimp?). But I don't think Kdramas will go down this route, but it would've been more dramatic story-wise to see a severe topic surrounding her taboo job.

Now... apart from the love triangle, which I usually dont like that much... I am really excited for this drama, since... it really makes me want to keep on watching and find out...
I am like watching 5 different dramas right now, some have already concluded... but even so... I am not desperate to keep on watching. Most of them are slow watching... But this drama!!! and Love is for suckers... they really make me want to know... and dang! I have to wait, because they are airing...
But it is ok... It is exciting!!
Park Min young looks different, not very much in a good way... I think her last surgery didnt make her favors, but her acting is still very likeable.
I really love Go Kyung pyo, so... I am glad i have him again on my screen... and the other guy, he is kinda cute... he is actually really cute... but so far so good, I am Ji ho's side.
