How to live stream
Since 'Moral Sense' is a Netflix Original project, it will be released exclusively on Netflix.
'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.
