Today, Xenews will show Shark Korean drama Review! Are you excited and expected to this interesting drama? Get ready with us!
I marathoned the superb revenge melodrama Shark (2013), and couldn’t sleep all night after starting it, because it absolutely was so full of tension in every episode! I loved actress Ye Jin Son and actor Nam Gil Kim because the leads, that they had sublime chemistry together, and that I loved their younger counterpart actors, Soo Jin Kyung and Joon Suk Yun, who played their characters as teenagers in set-up and flashback scenes. Never before have I seen two young actors who so perfectly captured the physical and emotional characteristics of the adult actors; I feel Korea often strives in their casting to match them up in appearance as best as possible, to their credit. Many other countries’ entertainment production companies don’t really care or think it is important enough.
The cinematography was lustrous and breathtaking on Shark, beyond beautiful! Many of the pictures, like the one below, were like classic paintings! I might freeze the photographs just to STARE at them in amazement! Images of beaches, lakes, woods, nighttime and daytime skies, gardens, picturesque streets, and buildings, to not mention startling human facial close-ups sometimes, were all unforgettable. Korea has the simplest camera people in the world, with a true eye for beauty! Forget Hollywood. The way back abandoned beauty. All the superficial people therein industry today care about is petty politics, not Art.
The soundtrack was lovely and haunting, just perfect for this poignant story of two people trapped in an exceeding web of intrigue, murder, and revenge.
For some unfathomable reason within the K-drama, world Shark falls under the radar unfairly and desires more exposure. Perhaps because it uses a more conventional, older, dreamy, and languid kind of film-making technique than kids today are used to; for anyone over thirty, however, I feel they might fall enamored with this show the maximum amount as I did. I hate to bandy the word around, but Shark could be a true masterpiece, due to its classic film style and also the excellence of its imagery, written script, soundtrack, and outstanding performances.
The Story of Shark Korean drama
