Kim Yoo-jung and Song Kang's 'Salvation' romance is stimulating heartbreaking excitement and arousing enthusiastic responses.

The SBS Friday-Saturday drama 'My Demon' is a fantasy romantic comedy that follows the contract marriage between the devilish conglomerate heiress Do Do-hee (played by Kim Yoo-jung) and the devil Jeong Gu-won (played by Song Kang), who lost his powers for a moment. 'My Demon' is showing its true value as a fantasy romantic comedy with each episode.

Viewers' reactions to this are also enthusiastic. 'My Demon' ranked first for three consecutive weeks in the comprehensive TV and TV-OTT topicality for the third week of December announced by FUNdex, the official platform of Good Data Corporation. In addition, in the topicality ranking of the performer category, Kim Yoo-jung (2nd place) and Song Kang (1st place) showed off their power by maintaining their positions for three consecutive weeks. It also ranked 2nd in the Netflix Global TOP 10 TV category (non-English/December 18 to December 24), showing its popularity by being listed in the weekly TOP 10 for 5 consecutive weeks.

From their first meeting of hatred (hate relationship) to becoming each other's salvation, Do Do-hee and Guwon narrowed the distance through repeated dizzying pushes and pulls. Do Do-hee and Gu-won confirm their love after an indefinite period of being attracted to each other but trying to ignore their feelings. Their relationship takes a new turn as they decide to face inevitable fate together.

The salvation that protected Do Hee with the cross tattoo finally back in place. The situation is stimulating curiosity about where the roulette of fate will go amidst numerous variables. With an unpredictable fate predicted along with a full-fledged two-way romance, we looked back at the three stages of change in the relationship of Do-won (Do-hee and Gu-won), a couple that has been a source of affection for viewers.

A bickering 'dislike' restaurant

Do Do-hee and Gu-won's first meeting began as if it was fate, as if it was a coincidence. Do-hee goes to the wrong meeting place due to the couple's manager's mistake. The ‘handsome Do-X-i’ who appeared in front of him shook the heart of the world’s haughtiest Do-Hee. Even though I was taken aback by Guwon's arrogant and relaxed attitude, I kept looking at him. Gu-seon, who was trying to retrieve the soul of the contractor and enjoy the sweet time, was also dissatisfied with the appearance of 'Iron Wall'.

Do Do-hee and Gu-won's second meeting, which started off as a bickering 'dislike', was also unusual. Guwon held out an irresistible devil's hand to Do Do-hee, a desperate man living in a fog where he couldn't tell who was friend or foe. In order to escape the crisis, Do Do-hee accepted the contract to pledge his soul and ended up holding his hand.

At that moment, the roulette of fate started spinning. The cross tattoo, which is the source of demonic power, was transferred to Do Hee's wrist. Guwon, who was robbed of his abilities overnight, faced the greatest upheaval of all evil life, having to protect Do Do-hee. Do-hee, a chaebol heiress who needs the power of a devil to protect herself, and Guk-gu, a devil who needs a tattoo to prevent extinction. In this way, the two became entangled in an unusual relationship.

A dizzying contract marriage in the middle of an irregular period.

A change came in the relationship between Do Do-hee and Gu Gu, who reached out to each other at every moment of crisis despite bickering. Even when she was in sorrow over the death of Joo Cheon-sook (played by Kim Hae-sook) and even when she was attacked by a gunman, salvation always appeared before Do Do-hee. Do Do-hee also caused Gu-won's accident. Guwon, who said that love is a trivial emotion that makes humans foolish, began to feel different feelings toward Do Do-hee.

The confused Gu-won pushed Do Do-hee away, and Do Do-hee also drew a line at the momentarily cold Gu-won. However, repeated crises ignited the complex emotions of Do Do-hee and Gu-won. Guwon’s sincerity in proposing to Do Do-hee, saying, “I don’t want you to die,” knocked on Do-hee’s heart again. Salvation, who faces a bad life for the first time and goes through a harsh period of irregularity, and Do Do-hee's risky contract marriage, which tries hard to hide her feelings, added to the excitement and burned the hearts of viewers.

As Do Do-hee and Gu-won's crisis continued, their feelings for each other grew uncontrollably. Do-hee, seeing that Gu-won had overcome the danger of death because of her, resigned as a candidate for the chairman of the future group to prevent her precious people from getting hurt anymore. Do Do-hee stabbed Gu Gu, pushing him away with harsh words that she didn't even have in her heart.

However, after realizing Do Do-hee's sincerity, Gu-won went straight ahead. The kiss of the two people, who confirmed their feelings for each other, was both exciting and touching. Do Do-hee gave up the war against Mirae Group, including Joo Cheon-sook's death, saying to Gu-won, "The choice for you has become a choice for me." Guwon also knew that if Do Do-hee didn't die, he would disappear, but he jumped into the fight with his fate at stake. Do Do-hee and Gu-won become so precious to each other that they choose to sacrifice themselves. The bet between the two people against their inevitable fate amidst a fierce crisis added to the heartbreak.

Meanwhile, the 11th and 12th episodes of 'My Demon' will be aired on January 5th and 6th, 2024, due to the SBS Drama Awards and Entertainment Awards broadcast.
