Starring Lee Sun Gyun and Song Ji Hyo
Lee Sun Gyun (Miss Korea, Coffee Prince) and Song Ji Hyo (Running Man, Emergency Couple) star in a romantic comedy about the often-hilarious situations that occur when the smallest thing makes people paranoid about their relationships. Do Hyun Woo (Lee Sun Kyun) is a producer who has been working in television for over 10 years, and believes he is immensely lucky to have both a successful career and happy marriage. One day, he finds a reservation for a hotel room on his wife’s phone, which leads him to believe his significant other (Song Ji Hyo) is about to have an affair. Because he isn’t sure how to solve this problem, he wants to reach out for advice but also does not want to compromise his privacy. So, instead of openly sharing his problem with the world, Do Hyun Woo decides to join the online forum, ‘Cheated Spouses Anonymous’. There, he speaks to several members who have experienced the betrayal of a loved one, while attempting to heal his own insecurity. Adding to the his tensions are Do Hyun Woo’s old college classmate (Master: God of Noodles star Lee Sang Yeob) and his lawyer friend (Gu Family Book alum Kim Hee Won), with the straight-talking workaholic writer Kwon Bo Young (international pop sensation BoA) rounding out the mess going on in Do Hyun Woo’s head. Will our Sherlock be able to solve this mystery of supposed infidelity, or will colluding with others that have been cheated on only intensify his paranoia?
