Movie Reviews

A must, especially for those who appreciate Asian culture!
M. T. Mounce | New Mexico, USA | 04/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm a young adult, not an artsy-fartsy kind of guy, and most foreign films are just bizzare... but this movie was very good. If you've seen Dangerous Liasons, you will like this Korean version of the story. Heck, if you're any part Korean like me, you'll enjoy it even more! Most people overlook how Korean society was, since China and Japan overshadow them in history. The way the characters interact with each other, and the cool clothing and atmosphere make for a movie that is both mentally and intellectually stimulating! It has all sorts of elements, mostly drama of course, and will evoke many emotions from amusement to sadness. I feel that most people will find at least one character in this movie with whom they can empathize and become attached to their destiny in the film. For those of you who are "family" oriented, it is pretty racy, so no minors! Give it a chance!"
Artistic, Erotic, Poetic and Tragic
F. Wang | Los Angeles, CA USA | 06/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I prefer this movie to the original Dangerous Liaisons for its brilliant colors and seamless flow of the plot. Though simple to the contemporary eyes, it is very refreshing to watch the "old-fashioned" but effective tricks men used 200 years ago to chase women. Compared to the original DL movie, the young actors portray innocence in a much more convincing way, which amplifies their ill fates even more tragically. The dialog is concise and poetic. It accurately reflects the elegance of the aristocrats with the simple humbleness and reservation unique to the Asian culture. I've watched this movie in both English and Chinese subtitles and feel that the Chinese translation depicts the essence slightly better, perhaps because of the closeness of the cultures."
Stunning imagery & great acting

"This movie is incredibly stunning both in acting and imagery. The actors, especially Lee Mi-suk & Bae Yong Joon, give believable & deliciously wicked performances. Not to mention the scenery, full of rich vibrant colors that will take your breath away. It is definitely worth watching. I highly recommend it."
