Comedy, fantasy, and a fake contract relationship — if you love these elements in your K-drama, then My Demon starring Song Kang and Kim Yoo-jung is a wicked good addition to your watchlist. The first two episodes are now available on Netflix, and we’ll be letting you in on our first impressions of the show.
My Demon: trailer and plot
Meanwhile, Gu-won looks down on humans and preys on their weaknesses. But when he meets Do-hee, his world gets turned upside down. He suddenly loses his powers, and he realises that he needs Do-hee by his side to get them back. The two enter into a contract marriage for their own different reasons, but you can bet that there’s room for a heart-fluttering romance to unfold.
Still debating whether the show is for you? Let’s now dive into our review of the first two episodes.
3 reasons to watch My Demon
1. You’ll enjoy the pacing of the story
The creators were also able to blend the dark storyline of various characters wanting to take down Do Do-hee (Kim Yoo-jung’s character) with lighthearted rom-com scenes. There isn’t a dull moment in the series or a side plot that’s “skippable”, and we’re wishing that this will continue in the next episodes.
2. You’ll fall for Song Kang’s charms
Song Kang’s chemistry with Kim Yoo-jung’s character is always a delightful part of the show, but his quirky interactions with the two people closely working with him will keep you interested too.
3. You’ll applaud Kim Yoo-jung’s character and the other strong women in the series
Do-hee might remind you of Son Ye-jin’s Yoon Se-ri in Crash Landing on You. The two characters share the role of being glamorous company CEOs who, unfortunately, have a handful of enemies waiting for their downfall. However, Do-hee isn’t your usual chaebol (meaning from a rich conglomerate Korean family) heiress — she was orphaned at a young age and was taken in by the chairwoman of Mirae Group. You’ll admire Do-hee’s desire to stay strong in front of others and feel for her when she blurts out her fears in front of Gu-won.
Speaking of powerful women, you’ll also be intrigued by the other female characters in the story. Veteran actress Kim Hae-sook (known for her roles in Start-Up and Hospital Playlist) is a wonderful choice for her role as “Madam Ju” or the chairwoman of Mirae Group and who’s one of the people in Do-hee’s corner. But there’s more than meets the eye because there’s a hint that she may be part of the death of Do-hee’s parents.
What to expect in the next episodes of My Demon
You can also look forward to more stunning outfits from Do-hee and Gu-won. Whoever’s behind their wardrobe deserves a raise because the first two episodes showcased their appealing features. It’s like they’re saying “I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream”.
