Thoughts: I told myself I wasn’t going to start another airing show but I always go back on my word when either Park Min Young or Go Kyung Po are concerned. And this time it’s both of them. I’ve only seen the first episode but that one 70-minute episode was chocked full of so much exposition I was reeling. But it also opened so many questions for the future. Like, “Is this a serial killer subplot?” “Why am I attracted to a potential murderer?” “Why is Park Min Young’s face different in every scene?” SO MUCH TO UNPACK! The concept feels fresh and has a nice twist on the idea of a contracted relationship. Part of me wonders if she is just a committed call girl without the sex. But even if she is, I’m here for it. Get your coin girl. One of my favorite parts is I can’t tell you who the lead or secondary lead is because I can see the potential with either. But at the end of the day, my favorite ship is going to be the one between Choi Sang Eun and Woo Gwang Nam, her gay ex-husband slash roommate slash soulmate. Give me more of them.
