Netflix recently released the Korean rom-com Love and Leashes, starring Girls’ Generation‘s Seohyun and U-KISS‘s Jun (also known as Lee Jun Young) as co-workers Ji Woo and Ji Hoo, respectively. Due to their similar names, they get a delivered package mixed up, only for Ji Woo to find out Ji Hoo’s secret.

When a very personal delivery mistakenly falls into the wrong hands at work, a no-nonsense subordinate and her new superior find their roles reversed after hours when they take their play into the bedroom.

Love never hurt so good in the spicy Netflix rom-com film LOVE AND LEASHES, starring Seohyun (PRIVATE LIVES) and Lee Jun-young (D.P.)

You’ve probably seen some clips circulating online, like this iconic scene of Jun barking like a dog… This, of course, is not the whole movie and shouldn’t be judged solely based on just this moment.

Ever since the film was announced and the trailer was released, netizens couldn’t get over the concept that was based on BDSM, which stands for “bondage and discipline,” “dominance and submission,” and “sadism and masochism,” especially considering how conservative Korean society tends to be regarding sexuality.

BDSM is a variety of often erotic practices or roleplaying involving bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, sadomasochism, and other related interpersonal dynamics. Given the wide range of practices, some of which may be engaged in by people who do not consider themselves to be practising BDSM, inclusion in the BDSM community or subculture often is said to depend on self-identification and shared experience.
