Getting new or occasional viewers to check out K-dramas necessitates a story that is universal in connection but it must overcome subtitles and the general cheesiness factor that most still associate with it. A good title helps and the upcoming Netflix K-drama adaptation of the SM tinged webtoon Moral Sense was well on its way to adding modern spicy until it took a title detour. The first still is out of leads Seohyun and Lee Jun Young (Jun of U-KISS) and they captivate the moment, there is tension and awkwardness and that burbling below the surface attraction. It’s all good and dandy until I saw the new English title for this drama Love and Leashes and I went WTF who thought that was a good title AT ALL. I know the male lead with his secret SM penchant orders a sex leash which gets delivered to the female lead due to a similar name mix up and it precipitates their unlikely romance but goodness Love and Leashes. It’s so so sooooo bad, even a self-published Amazon romance novel by a housewife aspiring writer would not have landed on such a dumbass alliterative title. Please press Control Z and revert thxbai.

I saw that in Netflix Brazil it’s titled Amor com Fetiche (Love and Fetish) which is not better lol. They should’ve come out with better title… Is Moral Sense too vague? The webtoon’s alternate english title is “Sensual M”. I don’t know which one is decent tbh lol.
Anyway, the webtoon is not really sexual and more on the wholesome side because it’s all about consent and respecting fetishes. I’m intrigued by the handcuff on the still, I enjoyed that scene on the webtoon lol.
Lee Jun Young is pretty busy! He was in Imitation, a role in DP, this one, another drama about an idol…
Yes that’s our Junnie…busy and it makes me happy seeing him on tv ♥️
