Clean With Passion For Now Season 2 Story
Although the drama keeps a lighter vibe, I thought it blended the humorous and serious elements well. There was plenty of comedy and fun to add joy, but then there were some very emotional and heartrending moments.
The show definitely has some slow spells here and there though where I thought the plot got draggy. There just wasn’t a whole lot of story to work with, and the pacing felt off at times. I would have liked to have seen the story surrounding Oh Sol’s mom’s death and its connection to Sun Gyul’s family delved into more throughout the show rather than concentrated more towards the end.
Clean With Passion For Now Season 1 Recap
Clean With Passion, For Now, is about the relationship between a cheerful and untidy woman (Kim Yoo Jung) who works at a cleaning company and the company’s owner (Yoon Kyun Sang) who suffers from mysophobia (germophobia) and is completely obsessed with cleanliness.
Yoon Kyun Sang is our germophobic Jang Sun Gyul. He is the CEO of a cleaning company, and he’s serious about cleanliness. He’s meticulous about his hygiene, sits on paper towels in public, wears gloves if he has to touch other people, and carries a spray bottle of disinfectant that he uses generously. He may come off as uptight and fussy, but his condition is actually quite serious and causes him many problems. Kim Yoo Jung plays Gil Oh Sol.
She’s a bit of a slob who isn’t too concerned about hygiene. And wouldn’t you know, she gets a job at Sun Gyul’s cleaning company. That has problems written all over it. Kim Yoo Jung was certainly adorable as Oh Sol. She may be a complete slob, but she’s a cute slob! Song Jae Rim is Choi Ha In. He lives in the rooftop apartment of Oh Sol’s home. He seems a bit strange, but he’s actually a well-respected psychiatrist. He’s also had feelings for Oh Sol for a long time.
And did I mention he’s one of Sun Gyul’s doctors too? Talk about a conflict of interest as this love triangle develops! He is nice enough, but this guy is not professional at all, and I just always had this icky feeling about him.
Clean With Passion, For Now, is a drama that didn’t immediately hook me. The first few episodes were leaning positive but felt mostly average. Sun Gyul and Oh Sol don’t have a ton of screen time together either. I always prefer the main couple to have plenty of scenes together early on. Luckily, the show had an overall fun vibe that kept me interested until our couple got more time together and their story developed.
I always like seeing dramas tackle mental health issues, and the main story of Clean With Passion, For Now, revolves around Sun Gyul’s Obsessive Compulsive Disorder which manifests itself as germophobia.
Experiences in his childhood ultimately led to his severe germophobia, and he has quite a difficult journey to go on. Of course, with this show being more lighthearted and fun, it plays many of his troubles for laughs. Much of it is stereotypical, but it is still pretty humorous.
Thankfully, they do eventually explore his condition more in-depth and touch upon just how difficult having it actually is. Not only is he experiencing emotional pain, but it is a full-time job staying clean.
There’s the constant washing and disinfecting as well as the effort it takes to avoid common things like shaking hands and people bumping into him. As much as he might downplay things, it’s not easy in any way and causes him a lot of mental anguish as well as some physical problems.
