“My Demon,” a Korean drama, makes a captivating entry into the realm of supernatural romance, blending intrigue and a corporate power struggle reminiscent of the show “Succession.” The first two episodes introduce us to an intriguing cast of characters, particularly the chaebol heiress Do Do-hee, played by Kim Yoo-jung, and a demon, Jung Gu-won, portrayed by Song Kang.

The series begins with an exploration of the evolving role of demons in human society, focusing on Gu-won, a demon whose name ironically means salvation. His character is immediately established as a powerful entity that deftly manipulates human fears to forge soul-binding contracts.

In a twist of fate, Gu-won’s path crosses with Do Do-hee, the likely successor to the Mirae Group, led by her adopted mother, Je Cheon-sook. Do-hee is portrayed as a character surrounded by adversaries, battling trust issues in a high-stakes corporate environment.

Their meeting, resulting from a mix-up at a blind date, reveals their similar traits of stubbornness and pride. This encounter, combined with a well-edited sequence that introduces a lighter, comedic aspect to the show, sets the stage for their evolving relationship.

As the story unfolds, Do-hee finds herself in a dangerous situation, leading to a desperate encounter with Gu-won, who sees an opportunity for a soul-binding contract. However, an unexpected event causes a transfer of power from Gu-won to Do-hee, dramatically altering the dynamics of their relationship.
