Love and Leashes Review:
For Jung Ji Woo, her job is not easy. Jiu, who is stuck under her incompetent and sexist boss, Fan, often encounters the character she has built up over the years to be taken cold and serious. It doesn’t bother her in particular, as she knows that being mercilessly honest and rational is part of her personality.
Jung Ji-hu, like most women in her office, finds herself attracted to him when she joins the public relations department as deputy director. But because she is herself, she refuses to flatter him. When Jihoo realized that he was actually participating in Dom and Sub play due to a mix-up of packs due to name similarity, they were immediately strictly limited to sensory play, and the sexual ones. Form an empty partnership.
Jiu begins to develop feelings for Jihu, but is afraid to pursue a romantic relationship because of his past relationships. Things certainly get worse when audio is released showing that they engage in doms and subgames in the office and can ruin their careers.
This movie successfully covers the differences between BDSM and dom and sub relationships and emphasizes the two differences. Jiwoo will take the time to explore and understand the differences between navigating unfamiliar areas. It deviated from dizzying her honestly about her fresh, whole experience from the beginning.
Although she has conducted a thorough investigation, the two maintain a clear boundary that their relationship is sex-free and their sole purpose is to meet other needs. Jihu’s character arc is especially interesting because it deals with the joy of finally finding someone who understands his habits without embarrassment. The scars from his previous relationship with a woman named Hana are still fresh, and Lee Jun-hyung is doing a great job translating it on the screen. Seohyun also shifts from Jihu’s “master” navigation to his feelings, wanting more of her shots, but never acting for her contract.
Another inspirational subplot that the movie focuses on is agreement. When Jiu’s girlfriend Hiemi tries to play Dom and Sub, she’s about to be attacked by a man trying to rape her. The movie takes this opportunity to explain that while it has dynamic power, BDSM and dom-and-sub play require consent.
