Actor Go Kyung-pyo raised the viewers’ curiosity about his identity in the new drama “Love in Contract”.
Go Kyung-pyo returned to the small screen through tvN’s Wednesday-Thursday drama “Love in Contract”, which aired its first episode on September 21st.
“Love in Contract” is a romantic comedy that tells about the marriage contracts between single life helper Choi Sang-eun (Park Min-young) with the long-term customer Jung Ji-ho (Go Kyung-pyo) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and with the new customer – superstar Kang Hae-jin (Kim Jae-young) on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
Earlier, Go Kyung-pyo boasted his unlimited acting spectrum and extraordinary character transformations through various movies “6/45”, “Seoul Vibe”, “and “Decision to Leave” this year.
As Go Kyung-pyo is finally returning to the small screen with his first romantic comedy in 6 years since SBS’s “Jealousy Incarnate”, keen attention is drawn to what performance he will show in this new work. In response to viewers’ expectations, Go Kyung-pyo perfectly transformed into his character right from the first appearance.
In the drama, Go Kyung-pyo plays Jung Ji-ho, a mysterious man who has been Choi Sang-eun’s customer for a long time. Jung Ji-ho, who hides everything, from his job to his past, suddenly confessed to Choi Sang-eun, “Please marry me”, on their first meeting.
Choi Sang-eun was completely taken aback by Jung Ji-ho’s sudden marriage suggestion without a reason. Jung Ji-ho said, “How about having dinner with me? Like a married couple”, stimulating the fans’ curiosity as he offered a contract with only one term.
In addition, Jung Ji-ho’s mysterious charm shone even more thanks to Go Kyung-pyo’s solid acting skills. In particular, he followed a mysterious woman in a dark alleyway and continued his suspicious behavior of secretly watching her at a restaurant on another day. The tension of the drama increased further when the woman being watched by Jung Ji-ho reportedly died.
Jung Ji-ho then tried to end his five-year marriage contract with Choi Sang-eun as he briefly said, “Let’s divorce”. The appearance of Jung Ji-ho, who seemed unworried after making such a shocking remark during an ordinary dinner, made the viewers even more curious about what secret he was hiding.
Go Kyung-pyo perfectly portrayed the restrained atmosphere of the character Jung Ji-ho, who seems to be hiding something, from his expressions, gestures, to lines, and raised high expectations for what the story will unfold in the future.
tvN’s “Love in Contract” airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 10:30 p.m.
