tvN Wed-Thurs Drama Love in Contract with park Min Young and Go Kyung Pyo Wraps Perplexingly Plotted Run

I can throw reality to the wind with a lot of K-dramas but for some reason Love in Contract just didn’t work for me on set up and then never delivered anything beyond the distasteful premise to make it a worthwhile watch. I was intrigued into to watch through episode 8 and then off-and-on to see how the plot unfolded but it’s legit just……weird. That Park Min Young‘s character with her child raised as a bride turned into a perpetual wife as a job just doesn’t work. If she pretended to date and pretended to marry her clients that’s fine but she legally married each one and then divorced them, it’s as unrealistic and Song Hye Kyo’s friends selling her house from under her in Full House.

Park Min Young is concerningly thin with half her lower jaw just shrunken I am worried legit but she once again brought a wonderfully warm and charismatic performance but its hard to not be distracted by her wan visuals. She and Go Kyung Pyo had good mature and sexy chemistry but the wonky plot and supremely annoying second male lead was too much to overcome in the end.
