This Post Contains SPOILERS!!

Synopsis: Shin Ha Ri is a single woman and works for a food company. She has a friend that she has been in love with for a long time, but she finds out that she has a girlfriend, she naturally feels sad and decides to meet her friend Jin Young Seo, who is the daughter of a chaebol family. Jin Young Seo asks Shin Ha Ri to take her place on a blind date with a view to marriage, and even offers some money for her time. Shin Ha Ri cannot refuse due to her critical financial situation and she introduces herself to the date as the fake Jin Young Seo, while she intends to be rejected by her date. Upon meeting the boy, she is impressed by his attractiveness, but she forces herself to fulfill her goal: to make him desist from choosing her as his wife. Kang Tae Mu, is the executive director of the company where Shin Ha Ri works, the company founded by Kang Tae Mu’s grandfather will be in charge of him, but his grandfather has one condition, that he marry and give him great-grandchildren, for that You must go to all the blind dates that I prepare for you and this will take up a lot of time for our protagonist! Kang Tae Mu is a workaholic and so he decides to marry the first woman he meets on a blind date, so as not to be distracted from his work anymore, and that woman turns out to be Shin Ha Ri, pretending to be Jin Young Seo. Our girl thinks she accomplished her goal, but the next day, she gets a phone call from Kang Tae Mu. Nice first two episodes, with a lot of comedy, the introduction of the characters, their family backgrounds, animations, and the anticipation of a romance to come. it will be full, surely many simulations. Kang Tae Mu has decided not to lose the one girl he thinks has been honest with him, but Shin Ha Ri still has more secrets, comically spun into the airing makjang drama that the adults in both their families are following. 😀 😀 😀 Shin Ha Ri has managed to get a job and pay her debts and those of her family over and over again by working very hard, we only know that she has been in love with a friend from university, but they did not tell us if she had some other romantic experience, however she is a very good actress. She has helped her friend Jin Young Seo get off blind dates on more than one occasion with her skills, but this time, things have gotten out of hand. Kang Tae Mu did not know any romantic relationship either, he has rejected all the girls, he is obsessive with work and cleanliness, so far his early orphanhood seems to have only awakened those two problematic characteristics. Kang Tae Mu’s secretary is Cha Sung Hoon, a quiet boy, we didn’t meet anyone around him, he is warm and conciliatory by dint of serving a boss who only thinks about work, without him looking for him he has become the romantic interest by Jin Young Seo, who comes from a rich family but is interested in marrying someone she is totally in love with. Mmmmm, here I see a lot of potential for the secondary couple!!

For now Kim Sejeong has made a huge change from his character in “The Uncanny Counters«, I had already said that I have only seen her in a drama with romance where she did not conquer me, but it is evident that this story with the elements of the webtoon benefits her a lot. I know that the romance hasn’t started yet for any of the couples, but I like the secondary couple better, what are we going to do? That’s why I hope that the main couple takes hold and conquers us, right now Kang Tae Mu has been very cold and Shin Ha Ri just the opposite, it’s also a shame to meet again Son Won Seok in another secondary and minor role (he plays Shin Ha Ri’s romantic interest). The address is from the PD Park SeonhoSuspicious Partner«, 2017; «wok of love«, 2018 and «My Strange Hero«, 2018. The script is a collaboration between the writer Han Sul Heeauthor of the saga «Ugly Miss Young Ae» seasons 1-4 and 9-17; and Hong Bo Heestandby«, 2012). PS: What they saved on the posters to make them so stark, they used on the graphics and special effects 😀 😀 😀
