The recently released Korean movie “Love and Leashes” has taken the world by storm. The Netflix film tackles a subject that the Korean industry has always avoided. From awkward make-up scenes where the female protagonists seemed to swoon at all times to a full movie based on a sexual fetish. Additionally, the film gave Kdrama’s fan-favorite trope of workplace romance a new and exciting twist. Additionally, Love and Leashes revolves around two co-workers named Jung Ji Woo and Jung Ji Hoo. At work, Ji Hoo is the stereotypically cool, handsome, and brutal male lead that all women swoon after. However, her colleague Ji Hoo opens a package that hides her deepest sexual fantasies. After countless discussions and introduction to unknown frontiers for Ji Hoo, what ensues is racy office romance at its finest.
Not only is the movie’s plot super interesting, but it also has an all-star cast. The female lead Ji Hoo is played by none other than the beautiful and versatile Seohyun. For those of you who don’t know, Seohyun is part of one of the most popular Kpop girl groups, Girls’ Generation. She also proved her acting abilities with dramas such as Bad Thief, Good Thief, and Ruby Ruby Love. Opposite her is handsome Lee Jun Young, better known as Jun of U-Kiss.
