Starring Lee Sung Kyung and Kim Young Kwang, the drama portrays a journey of evolution—from initial thoughts of revenge to a profound mutual understanding—ultimately showcasing their joint growth in both life and love.

Love to Hate You spins the tale of an attorney who can't stand losing to men and an A-list actor who has trust issues with women. Love doesn't mean much to them until they're pushed into a situation where they have to date each other. The show beautifully navigates the fine line between love and hate, showcasing their journey from conflict to connection. Starring Kim Ok-vin and Teo Yoo, it's a story of a strong-willed female lawyer and a famous male actor learning to understand each other in the midst of a unique romantic battle.
