My love Eun Dong Review

Today, we will have My Love Eun Dong review! Are you excited about our review? Let’s watch this wonderful drama!

I decided to look at this Korean drama, My Love Eun Dong (2015), due to the male star Joo Jin Mo whom I had enjoyed in several films, like Gabi and 200 Pound Beauty, but I ended up not feeling plenty of sympathy for his character since scenes of him committing adultery with the lead female character tainted the story. That’s one in every of my very own personal big red flags about dramas and films, when characters commit adultery I find that repugnant and also the purity of the romance they’re trying to inform is ruined; there isn’t any justification for adultery, and that I immediately start disliking the characters and therefore the story. I believe these styles of characters are very immature and selfish and not very admirable to base a supposedly timeless romantic story on. Plus the author here tried to create the disabled husband in an exceeding wheelchair, who desperately needed his wife and loved her, the bad guy; not very correctness today! I’m happy this show appeared on a tiny low cable station in Korea (jTBC) and only averaged between 1 and a pair of percent ratings within the nation, so not plenty of individuals watched this one. Good.

The first episodes, which focused on the couple as children, were sweet and poignant. I enjoyed the 2 sets of actors within the beginning parts of the story: Jr. (When a person Loves) and Lee Jee In because the teen set, and Baek Sung Hyun (White Christmas, Stairway To Heaven, Running Shirt) and Yoon So Hee (Sword and Flower) because the twenty-somethings and that I was hopeful the adult romance would be as lovely. However when the characters reunited as adults in their thirties they both perceived to have arrested developments — he because he was a spoiled brat, famous and rich actor at 35 behavings like he was still 18 — and she or he because she had amnesia (no, not again!) and couldn’t remember him. Calgon, take me far from Korean drama cliches! Enough already! Between the standard cliches of youngsters falling smitten, being separated, then reuniting years later, amnesia, car crashes, interfering parents, meddling second female lead, etc. I felt like this drama was too old-fashioned and tedious for today’s audiences. Korea desperately has got to come up with some new story ideas! Please!

The plot of “My Love Eun Dong”

A person raised with the birth name Hyun Soo (Joo Jin Mo) has become Korea’s most famous actor by his mid-30’s, using the nom de guerre of Ji Eun Ho, and he has been fixated for years on finding a lost childhood love of his named Eun Dong; they were separated the primary time because of the death of her grandmother after which she was sent to a Catholic orphanage to measure before being adopted by foster parents, and so after discovering one another time in their twenties they were quickly separated a second time through the tragedy of a car crash during which Eun Dong’s future husband was crippled, and during which she lost her memories because of amnesia.

Because of the interference of meddling foster parents who do nothing to assist Eun Dong to restore her memories, and since of an out of wedlock pregnancy, she marries the person who was her boyfriend before Eun Ho showed up in her life again, despite his disability; this young man named Jae Ho (played in adulthood by actor Kim Tae Hoon from Operation Proposal) was distressed at being shifting with as a young man infatuated and lands up crashing the car with both himself and Eun Dong inside. Paying for this activity in the worst way possible wanting death he becomes paralyzed from the waist down and she or he recovers but has no more memories of Hyun Soo / Eun Ho. How convenient.

Eun Ho becomes a famous actor hoping that his fame will help him reach resolute Eun Dong, wherever she could also be. He wonders why she never contacts him and he knows nothing about the car accident or her amnesia or the very fact that she is married. Perhaps she is already dead, he wonders to himself.

Eun Ho decides to write down an autobiography and publicize his love for Eun Dong within the book in the hopes she’s going to reach intent on him. Because he’s a busy actor his agency manager hires a ghostwriter, and guess who it is? Eun Dong (actress Kim Sa Rang from Secret Garden), of course, with the pseudonym of Jung Eun. When he speaks to her on the phone for the primary time he thinks her voice appears like Eun Dong’s and he tries to urge an image of her, to no avail. He hears she is married and includes a child but states to his friend that whether or not it’s true, and she or he lands up being Eun Dong, that he won’t care, he will still pursue her. (At now I used to be getting ticked off at him). He drives to her condo address and sees that she is indeed his old love Eun Dong, and as he gazes at her from a distance he weeps.

As Eun Dong alias Jung Eun organizes Eun Ho’s recordings and begins to put in writing his autobiography it starts to trigger her own memories. Through Eun Ho’s recordings sent to her cellular phone, Jung Eun gets to listen to the story of Hyun Soo and Eun Dong, and feels as if she is taking note of her own story, writing her own story, and in fact, she is! They finally meet at a restaurant, at which point it’s obvious the sparks are already flying between them. As she realizes she is Eun Dong she is shaken to the core — during a park setting when Eun Ho asks her if she loves her husband she says “yes” but soon thereafter seems to possess little conflict with the concept of cheating on her disabled husband or hurting her young son by committing adultery with this old love she’s hardly spent any time with during her life. By now I used to be seriously ticked off with HER! you do not claim to like your husband one moment and therefore the next jump into an old lover’s arms.

Then the question of which man is that the biological father of the kid comes up likewise. At this time the entire show was becoming distasteful to me. Do the correct thing. If you’re infatuated and wish to finish the wedding to the disabled Jae Ho you are doing that FIRST so marry Eun Ho within the proper order so couple. you do not put the cart before the horse and expect me to trust your supposed goodness as people … nonsense. I probably had plenty more sympathy for the disabled husband than most viewers did thanks to the underhanded way this script was written, making his grief secondary to their “love”. Yes, he wasn’t exactly a bit innocent within the situation, his actions had kept the couple apart for a decade, but he still was the husband, he still loved the tiny boy whom he had raised well for ten years and he still loved his wife. the author was calling it off a family yet expected the bulk of viewers to enjoy this “romance”? Sorry. No can do!

The only scene during this entire drama that made me cry happened after the disabled husband had tried to kill, was within the hospital recovering, and his son visits him in his room and father and son embrace one another amorously. what’s fatherhood anyway, if it is not loved? “The father …. is that the one who loves,” said Charles Boyer to Horst Buchholz in Fanny (1961). That line from that classic film came immediately to my mind during this heart-tearing scene. this is often the 000 story during this K-drama, as far as I’m concerned. Through the full show, we barely see Eun Dong spend any time along with her son — it is often the husband who is caring for him, reading to him, making his meals, etc. Who is that the real father? The One Who Loves.

If you have got watched any touch of K-dramas before you’ll probably already predict how this may turn out; will everyone be redeemed by the skin of their teeth by the top, or not? If you care enough to seek out expect a rather arduous, painful journey. I’m only glad this series was 16 episodes rather than the standard 20 for typical melodramas. I actually feel no must ever revisit this K-drama when there are others with much more beautiful and unforgettable love stories in them that don’t have anything to try to do with adultery!
