Watch: Kim Ok Bin And Yoo Tae Oh Kick Off A Complicated Contract Relationship Despite Their Bad Blood In New “Love To Hate You” Teasers

Netflix has dropped a cute couple poster of Kim Ok Bin and Yoo Tae Oh for “Love to Hate You,” as well as intriguing new character teasers!

“Love to Hate You” is a romantic comedy following a war-like romance between a woman who desperately hates losing to men, and a man who is extremely suspicious of women, that kicks off their joint healing journey.

Kim Ok Bin stars as Yeo Mi Ran, a lawyer who’s been let down by men all throughout her life, including her father, ex-boyfriend, and co-worker. As someone who detests the saying that women need to be protected by men, Yeo Mi Ran does everything in her power to become stronger both physically and in her career.

When Yeo Mi Ran moves to a law firm in charge of celebrity litigation, she meets top actor Nam Kang Ho, who is played by Yoo Tae Oh. Although he’s considered the best romance actor, Nam Kang Ho has developed a distaste for women due to childhood trauma and thus prefers starring in action roles.

Despite their hesitations towards the opposite gender, Yeo Mi Ran and Nam Kang Ho look happy in a sweet couple poster. However, their anxiety toward love is captured in the poster caption that reads, “Please don’t let me fall in love.”

The new character teasers also dive deeper into the individual stories of Yeo Mi Ran and Nam Kang Ho as they get tied up in an unlikely romance. Yeo Mi Ran’s teaser starts with a display of her strength as someone she injures ends up hospitalized for six weeks. Her best friend Shin Na Eun (Go Won Hee) is shocked to see this on the news and immediately calls up Yeo Mi Ran to ask with an exasperated tone, “Your full-time job is being a female gangster, right? And being a lawyer is your side gig?”

Once Nam Kang Ho gets an understanding of Yeo Mi Ran’s aggressive tendencies, she explains herself saying, “I’m tough against the powerful and weak against the weak.”

This mindset carries into Yeo Mi Ran’s love life as she firmly tells her friend that she must be suspicious of all men. She angrily says of Nam Kang Ho, “He’s a misogynist who thinks all women are prostitutes!” She details her desire to find evidence and ruin his career, but then changes her mind. Quickly catching on to Yeo Mi Ran’s ulterior motive, her friend asks, “You have a target, right?”

The deal that causes a shift in Yeo Mi Ran’s mind is a contract that gives her 100 million won (approximately $81,300) in exchange for publicly dating Nam Kang Ho for three months. As this is an ultimate compromise of Yeo Mi Ran’s values, Shin Na Eun confiscates the contract, but Yeo Mi Ran only responds with a gleeful giggle.

As news of their relationship hits the public, Yeo Mi Ran and Nam Kang Ho’s real relationship experiences a change as they slowly start to fall for one another. She understands his charm as a top romance actor, but remains confident in her ability to not be swayed by him.

Nam Kang Ho’s teaser highlights his stardom and crazy popularity. Although known as the “Master of Kissing” and “God of Romance,” Nam Kang Ho’s public image does not resonate with him as he states, “All romance writers are psycho.”

Working behind the scenes for Nam Kang Ho is Do Won Joon (Kim Ji Hoon), his best friend and agency CEO who wants to see him succeed in work and love. After Do Won Joon proposes to Yeo Mi Ran that she sign a contract and date Nam Kang Ho for three months, things clearly go awry when he later describes her as “weird” and “a crazy lawyer.”

Joining this wild mix is Oh Se Na (Lee Joo Bin), a popular actress and Nam Kang Ho’s first love. When Oh Se Na is cast as the lead in Nam Kang Ho’s new project, she tries rekindling their romance, but then reassures him, “Do you really think I’d go around telling people your girlfriend is fake?” While she initially appears supportive, Oh Se Na is later shown close to tears when she witnesses Nam Kang Ho and Yeo Mi Ran hugging.

As Nam Kang Ho and Yeo Mi Ran’s contract relationship continues, his feelings change as he comments, “Should I say it feels like something frozen has now thawed?” Sensing his sincerity, Do Won Joon earnestly tells Nam Kang Ho, “You don’t know whether they’ll ever be a girl like this again. Hold on to Yeo Mi Ran.”

To describe Yeo Mi Ran and Nam Kang Ho’s relationship, Yoo Tae Oh shared, “They hate each other due to a misunderstanding and love each other because of sincerity.” Additionally, another romance will blossom between their best friends Shin Na Eun and Do Won Joon which will add to the fun and chaos of the drama!

“Love to Hate You” will be released on February 10.
