Air time

Currently, the film has just been confirmed and is in the works, but there is no official premiere date revealed yet. We will update this space once we receive further information in the future.

How to live stream

Plot

'Moral Sense', the film's working title, is about a woman who discovers her co-worker's sexual secrets which leads to their relationship. The film is a webtoon-to-movie adaptation based on the webtoon of the same name. 

Based on the webtoon, 'Moral Sense' tells the story of a man named Jung Hi-hoo with an unusual sexual preference for certain women but he keeps it to himself. He is a seemingly clean-cut and well-behaved office worker who is popular with the female employees in the company. The female lead Jung Ji-woo finds out that he has a taste for BDSM when she accidentally opens his mail to reveal a leash. Fan pages for the webtoon share that the story also hints that Jung Ji-woo is a potential dominatrix and as the pair spend their time together and begin understanding one another, they end up having a rather unique master and servant relationship.

Netflix has stated that their spending in South Korea will top US$500 million in 2021, with other exclusives such as 'Hellbound' and 'Carter' in the works.
