Kim Dong Wook and Go Sung Hee Try Out Classic Contract Marriage in K-movie Trade Your Love

If the just premiered tvN Wed-Thurs rom-com Touch Your Heart feels like a total throwback to what a drama rom-com a decade ago looks like, then the upcoming movie Trade Your Love gives off the same vibes and I’m not complaining.
