I’ve long since put Love by Law (The Law Cafe) in the rear view mirror and neither leads Lee Seung Gi and Lee Se Young have come out worse for wear with, I just chalk it up to wrong roles in a lackluster story. I’m ready for whatever each has in store for 2023 and Lee Se Young has just picked a drama that sounds totally interesting. It’s adapted from a webtoon called Park’s Contract Marriage Story (The Contract Marriage Tale of Female Martyr Park) about a woman in 19th century late Joseon era who time-travels to the present day and tries to get back. She’s the daughter of a high ranking official who became a widow on the first day of her marriage and this becomes a legendary figure spoken about in the capital city. Time-travel typically goes back in time so this coming forward sounds super interesting and I can’t wait especially with Lee Se Young in the female lead role.

interesting plot.. good luck!
So it’s like a gender swap Queen Inhyeon’s Man?
Because I love Queen Inhyeon’s Man so I’ll look forward to this.
I wouldn’t call it gender swap version of “Queen Inhyeon’s Man” per se, because in the latter drama, the protagonist uses his knowledge of historical events and does go back to his original timeline several times to change the course of history, whereas in the former drama, the Joseon-era heroine settles in the 21st century because she decides to enter a contract marriage to a man who looks exactly like her deceased husband.
A very typical time-travel plot though it might be fresh for webtoons.
She really needs a better follow-up since Law Café sucked so much. This at least sounds entertaining on paper.
