“If I Cheat I Die” Will Definitely Play with Your Emotions this Winter
This December, we have a new and interesting Korean drama series that you wouldn’t want to miss. KBS 2TV finally announced in October, if i cheat i die airing in December this 2020 and who wouldn’t be excited for a new and interesting series in this cold weather right?
This series is a mystery thriller with a mix of comedy which most people will see it an interesting series because of its genre. Thriller and comedy? This series looks like it’s gonna play with our emotions giving us that mystery and comedy vibes.
In if i cheat i die, Cho Yeo-Jeong and Go Joon will be portraying the role of a married couple. Cho Yeo-Jeong as Kang Yeo-Joo and Goo Joon as Han Woo-Sung.
Kang Yeo-Joo (Cho Yeo-Jeong) is an author, a best-selling writer who usually writes novels about crime stories of murder cases.
Her novels are quite popular because of her ways of writing. She usually ends her stories by killing her male characters for being unfaithful to their partner. Kang Yeo-Joo constantly thinks about how to murder people, or in other words, unfaithful people.
Han Woo-Sung (Goo Joon) on the other hand, is a lawyer, specializing in divorce. Han Woo-Sung is the kind of man who is overly passionate about his work.
He usually gets emotionally involved with his work and getting too close with his clients he should only be defending as their lawyer. Because of this, he often ends up being reported for his actions. Han Woo-Sung is the one who wrote if i cheat i die in an agreement with his wife that obviously made the title.
In this agreement, it says that from the date of Han Woo-Sung’s (Goo Joon) wedding pledge with Mrs. Kang Yeo-Joo (Cho Yeo-Jeong), if he ever had an affair with another woman, every right to his entire body will transfer to Mrs. Kang Yeo-Joo.
This means because Han Woo-Sung signed this agreement, if he ever cheats on Kang Yeo-Joo, she has every right to do whatever she wants with his body, even put an end to it. It’s kind of creepy, but interesting. On the top of this agreement, it shows the title which says if i cheat i die.
In if i cheat i die trailer, you can see Kang Yeo-Joo here gardening. Some of you will think she’s normally gardening like a normal woman, but if you watch more further, you will see a hand coming out from under the ground that looks like a man’s hand who is reaching out for help. But of course, I think you can already guess the man’s situation why he ended up under the ground with Kang Yeo-Joo gardening around it.
Here’s the trailer, watch it and it will give you the vibes I’m talking about.
So as you see, these two married couples are not your usual romantic and fun type of couple. Yes, there might be a comedy inside this series, but their relationship is quite odd, or should I say very unique but a little kind of cute and creepy series that you should look forward to.
