“Love in Contract” is a new tvN romantic comedy about a service that provides fake wives for single people in need of partners to bring to social gatherings, such as school reunions and dinners for married couples.

Park Min Young stars as professional fake wife Choi Sang Eun, who finds herself caught between longtime client Jung Ji Ho (Go Kyung Pyo)—with whom she has a long-term exclusive contract for Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays—and newcomer Kang Hae Jin (Kim Jae Young), an A-list idol-turned-actor who wants to sign a contract with her for Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Thursdays.

Previously in “Love in Contract,” Kang Hae Jin immediately recognized Choi Sang Eun as his first love “Jamie” when they ran into each other in his new building’s elevator. However, Choi Sang Eun didn’t recognize him from her past, and Kang Hae Jin was heartbroken to learn that she was already married to his neighbor Jung Ji Ho.

Later, a worried Kang Hae Jin took Choi Sang Eun aside to warn her that her husband seemed like a dangerous person, but she curtly brushed him off—and at the end of the second episode, Jung Ji Ho interrupted the two of them as Kang Hae Jin frantically attempted to warn her a second time.

In newly released stills from the drama’s upcoming episode, however, it appears that Kang Hae Jin and Choi Sang Eun have gotten much closer. Although she previously told him off for his excessive interest in her and Jung Ji Ho’s marriage, Choi Sang Eun seems to have let part of her guard down: after stepping inside Kang Hae Jin’s home, she allows him to tend to an injury on her shoulder with a relaxed, comfortable expression.

Another photo captures a heart-stopping encounter between the pair, with Kang Hae Jin seemingly leaning in for a kiss with a bathrobe-clad Choi Sang Eun.

The producers of “Love in Contract” teased, “The past relationship between Kang Hae Jin and his first love Choi Sang Eun will be revealed [in the coming episodes].”

“As Kang Hae Jin’s unrequited love from his past becomes a current [love] in his present, tension will begin to build in the story,” they continued. “Please look forward to an alternate-day romance that will both keep you in suspense and make your heart flutter.”

The next episode of “Love in Contract” airs on September 28 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
