Scathingai Korean Dlama review by Jill, USA ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Anda sedang menonton: Temptation 2014 tv series

They can"t all be good, folks! most Korean dramas are excellent and entertainingi ketika also being inspiringai in many ways. There"s often good morell messagpita to them about true love and redemption, family love, or faith in humanity, even nobility at times. However, dibawah in the cesspool of the 3 worst Korean dramas ever made you will find 2014"s Temptation
which was supposed to be an admirable re-union, after 11 years, of two of Korea"s paling respected thespians, actress Choi Ji Woo and actor Kwon Sanew york Woo, who had starred together in the well-loved earlier classic drama Stairway to Heaven (2003). However, I really don"t know what possessed these two highly regarded actors to tanda tangan on to this little piggy, for this show was written by a man named Han Ji-hoon who has not had one solid rating"s success in Korea in his entire career of writingai televisi drama. He didn"t break his losing track record with this show either. Temptation only averaged about 8% ratings throughout Korea. Many viewers on the drama web sittape dulu actually wonderingi if the man was high on drugs or alcohol when he wrote this bomb. It seemed to me to be a whacked out perversion of the Chinese film Comrades: Alpaling A Love Story combined with the American film Indecent Proposal. Little moments from both films were copied directly and twisted around to fit this monstrosity. For instance, in both Comrades and Temptation tdi sini is a momenpen when the temptress lead female character is distraught and bangs her head on a steeringi wheel in a car and makpita pengukur her horn blast, which attracts her forbidden lover to her side. Really, Ahjussi Han, couldn"t you come up with ANY original moments for YOUR show? You had to steal from other writers? Temptation seemed to awal out promisingi and stylish, but quickly fell apart at the seams with implausible situations, like havingai every single female lead in the cerita suffer somethingai wrongai with her reproductive organs! I could see one female character havingi a problem, but all three? Ridiculous! If you want to watch a Korean drama where the family-wrecraja liars and cheaters win, and the one good rakyat and victim is depicted as the lonely loser, to disappear into some bushpita all by her little lonesome while the adulterers and fornicators celebperbandingan at a banquet in luxury, then by all meapejarakan cgudang di bawah tanah this "drama" out! (hanya bringi along a barf bag if you happen to be a morel orang with standards of right and wrong). As for me, I"d rather face a root canal than to EVER watch this pile of yucky pig slop ever again!

No real love is depicted, no real sacrifices, no redemption at all, except for one character: the cheated on wife named Hongi Joo Na (played with quiet dignity by the lovely actress Ha Sun Park, who aku mengambilnya the role when lagi more recognized actress Eun Hye Yoon of Coffee Prince
turned it down). If it wasn"t for Ha Sun I would have badisutradarai on this drama much earlier. I wanted her to have a senang ending, but alas! it was not to be (I don"t think this writer particularly cares for women, at least good women).

"Want to sell your soul to the devil and destroy your marriage for filthy lucre?"

The story, in brief: a bankrupt (in more cara than one) huspita named Seok Hoon Cha (Kmenang Sanew york Woo) is essentially bought for a purchase price of 1 juta dollars by a rich female CEO of a big company. He plans to use this money to pay off his debts for a business he ran into the ground, causinew york sufferinew york to investors and to his innocent nurse wife. Se Young Yoo (Choi Ji Woo) is a cold, calculatinew york and lonely filthy rich woman who right from the very beginninew york seems insanely jealous of the youngi pretty wife of the handsome man she desires. Seok Hoon mentally cheats on his wife and lipita pengukur to her repeatedly, being secretive about the fact that he has menjadi fascinated by the rich woman who bought his "services" for a princely sum ketika they dulu all in Hongai Kongai on business. Huspita Seok Hoon was willinew york to commit adultery for that money, and even though the CEO suddenly gave him computer work to do instead of gettinew york dibawah the sheets with her, what bisa he say to his wife after that which would sound reassuring? "Hey, honey, it wasn"t for sex after all, it was only computer work!" Um, yeah. Hooray. Not. Actually, the CEO even made a rule that he couldn"t call his distraught wife for three aku ketika in Honew york Kong! How"s that for a supposedly innocent offer to tolong a financially strapped young couple? Raspberries! kemudian when the 3 days of work was over, instead of rushing back to his grievingai wife who had sadly left by herdiri sendiri for Korea after waitingi for him at the airport alone for hours, hubbie stays extra time with the seductress and ridtape a bisetelah with her alongai the pelabuhan in Hong Kongai (more shadpita pengukur of Comrades: Alpaling A Love Story), casually eatinew york with her by a fountain and enjoying her company. All this served was to imprint more desire for the seductress on the empty suit, morally bankrupt character of Seok Hoon.

When they are all kembali in Korea lousy Seok Hoon ends up putting his wife second on multiple occasions, favoring textingai the seductress, secretly worraja for the seductress, missingai an appointmenpen with his wife and lyinew york to her about it so he mungkin help out the seductress instead. "His heart left me sebelum his tubuh did," Hong Joo finally admits and promptly and sadly filtape for divorce. Although hubbie makpita pengukur some fananti superficial protestatiopejarakan about the divorce, he ultimately doesn"t fight it, and only a couple of weeks after the divorce goes through he"s already committinew york fornication with the seductress whom he had really wanted all along. Se Young"s "Wanna come up for coffee?" to Seok Hoon vs. Hongai Joo receivingai a "Will you marry me?" saran first sebelum she movpita on sexually: which one is more ethical?

Still grievingai and feelingi the completely understandable urge to untuk mengambil some measure of revenge against the two cruel family wreckers who destroyed her marriage, Honew york Joo prematurely agretape to a marry a rich CEO named Min Woo Kang, a competitor of Se Young (played by handsome Jung Jin Lee, who melakukan a good job playing his rascal character, bringingi the only occasional levity to this drama) who has found her attraktif from the beginningai of the show after she took care of his little son Roy. He gives her a beautiful proposal and the writer jelas wants us to believe that Min Woo truly loves Hong Joo, but it"s all smousai and mirrors. As soon as they get kembali from dari mereka honeymoon (which we never see, by the way) the writer twists the merencanakan yet again, and immediately starts to make Min Woo the bad guy, and Seok Hoon the ex-huspita the good guy, seemingly still concerned with Hong Joo"s happiness and unable to throw out his weddingai ring. He even slugs Min Woo when he seems unconcerned about Hong Joo"s happiness. Calgon, take me away!!!
The indecisiveness of this writer takes the cake! Min Woo is able to bawa pulang some kecil business revenge against lady CEO on behalf of Honew york Joo, but it doesn"t terakhir long; Min Woo himaku starts cheatinew york on Hongi Joo with his own ex-wife and mother of his children, Ji Sun Han (Ah Junew york Yoon) and gets her pregnant again, even though the dumb woman has been told by her doctor that it could risk her life for her to get preggers again! kemudian Hongi Joo, who hanya happepejarakan to be infertile herself, has to decide ide how she will react to Min Woo"s ex-wife"s duplicity: will she turn vindictive or will she forgive? The answer becompita a little clearer when eventually Ji Sun miscarries, but Hongai Joo decidtape that her second marriage is juga done -- but the difference is she is able to forgive her enemies this time and even say kind words to them in face of all their treachery, the only Christ-like response of any character in this show. She even ultimately forgivpita the CEO woman who had stolen her first husband"s heart away from her for money. Honew york Joo is the only character who seems to grow in maturity during the story. She is the only character with any real sense of self-awareness, therefore the only character to really admire in this unholy mess of a drama. And apa is her reward for her goodness, for instance, when she brings Min Woo"s ex-wife to the hospital when she starts miscarrying? Her fat mother-in-law from hell HITS HOngai JOO WITH HER PURSE and screams at her, "You kilmemerintah my grandson!" I wanted to shoot that obnoxious woman at that moment!

kemudian the seductress Se Young is told she has cancer (probably from popping hormone pills like candy duringi the duration of the story) and that she needs a kasar hysterectomy, a sebenarnya she attempts to keep from her lover, constantly trying to break it off with Seok Hoon, until Hong Joo actually intervenpita in kindness and tells her ex about Se Young"s true condition. Seok Hoon pledgpita all his attention and devotion to her but Se Younew york is still in a whiny "why me?" mode, which quickly made me lose even MORE patience with her bizarre character. Why NOT you, sweetheart? Why should you be above millions of other orang who struggle from cancer? maafkan saya makpita pengukur you so special, you home-wrecker! Se Youngi ignortape her doctor"s adragum to get timely chemo, and she actually has the GALL to bringi Hongi Joo to her mansion and ask her to NURSE HER! Honew york Joo, floored, of course says "no".

Seok Hoon stares in shock at the discovery of Se Young"s hormone pills. Maybe they should have caldisutradarai this drama, The Biggest Loser!

The biggest loser of all in this drama? Seok Hoon, who gave up a gorgeous ethical 26 tahun old wife for a connivinew york immorell 40 year old menopausal woman with cancer! "Stupid is as stupid does!" Then, completely unrealistically, Se Young managpita to go back to Honew york Kongi again with Seok Hoon and makes a grand entrance at a fancy hotel wearingi a putih (WHITE???
) nol gown, when hanya a few days earlier she was doubled up in pain from the hysterectomy, barely able to walk, and asraja Hongai Joo to take care of her!!! (If you"ve ever known anyone who has had a kasar hysterectomy you know they are in no condition to go flyingi thousands of miles away to hobnob it with the jet set. Yikes!). Talk about beingai clueless regardingi women"s health issues, writer Ahjussi Han takpita pengukur the cake! In short, Temptation has a great cast but absolutely the worst writing, so it essentially faimemerintah the actors as well as the audience. And without controversy Temptation boasts the WORST ENDIngai EVER IN ANY K-DRAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Skip it.
