"Because This Is My First Life"

A quiet and reassuring romantic comedy about two individuals who enter into a contract for mutual benefits, "Because This Is My First Life" is a lovely story about adulthood and its realistic implications. Both the male and female lead, who are otherwise reserved, cozy up to each other and develop a companionship that goes beyond institutions like marriage. Starring Jung So-min and Lee Min-ki, this drama is a must-watch.
