KBS2’s new comedy-mystery thriller If You Cheat, You Die has unveiled a promotional visual featuring its main lady Cho Yeo-jeong.
If You Cheat, You Die (also known as Cheat on Me, If You Can) will tell the story of Kang Yeo-joo (Cho Yeo-jeong, Woman of 9.9 Billion), a best-selling novelist, and her husband Han Woo-sung (Go Joon, Oh My Baby), an overly passionate divorce lawyer. It is described as a comedy-mystery series that will explore how adults who do bad things suffer under their own guilty conscience.
The upcoming drama’s freshly dropped promo shares a first look at Yeo-joo, who is known in the industry as the “Praying Mantis” for killing off the unfaithful male characters in her works. Despite her image as a crime mystery writer, she actually lives a peaceful married life with Woo-sung, who, oddly enough, wrote her a memorandum.
The teaser poster shows Yeo-joo holding a blood-spattered book titled “If You Cheat, You Die” with her immaculately red-manicured hands. With her inviting gaze and the caption above her that reads “I’ll tell you a funny story,” she seems to be enticing viewers and piquing their curiosity on what the book’s story could be and how her husband ended up serving her a contract with the exact same title.
If You Cheat, You Die’s unconventional story is helmed by Kim Hyung-seok and penned by Lee Seong-min. It will air on KBS2 at 9:30 p.m. KST beginning December 2 as a Wednesday-Thursday drama.
