Kdrama Review: Love in Contract

Drama: Love in Contract

Genre: romcom

Starring: Park Min Young, Kim Jae Young, Go Kyung Pyo

Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤

Another drama that took me months to watch. Not sure if this is a function of the drama, or my mood and life. But anyway, I finally finished it!

This one is about a girl who marries for her job. She has been married like 13 or times or something. She does it for when a guy needs a wife for some event or something. Or to show off to his family, or, as is the case with the guy in the drama... just someone to eat dinner with. When the job is over, she gets divorced and moves on. 

Well, with our guy she has been eating dinner with him for like five years, and finally, as the drama opens, she decides she is sick of this job and she is going to retire and move on to something else. So she has to tell him that they are over. But then she realizes, she is sad to tell him and that she wants to keep eating dinner with him, as they have been all these years. 

So, what to do?

In the meantime, we learn her back story and what brought to do such a job. And a new dude moves into the apartment where her "husband" lives and he ends up truly liking her and talks her into not retiring and being HIS wife too. 

And then things get really messy. 

It was cute and fun in parts, but very long and boring in other parts. The last few episodes were really really draggy... ugh. Usually the last episodes of a drama are so fast paced and crazy that you can't stop and you end up watching them all at once. But these last ones took me a month to get to. Sadness. 

The dude who played the second male lead was someone I hadn't seen in anything before and I really enjoyed his acting. Hopefully I will find him in something else again some day. 

New dude: Kim Jaeyoung

Anyway, so yeah. I mostly enjoyed it and it was a fun premise, but really lagged around way too much.

Here's a trailer:

And a song:

  1. I remember you telling me about this one. It sounds cute. I feel like I haven't watched a drama in forever.
