K-Drama: 아내의 유혹 (Lure of Wife/Temptation of Wife)


I'm embarrassed to admit this but I'm totally digging this drama. It's just so over the top - characters you absolutely love to hate. My only complaint is that I liked 'Michelle' better with her straight bangs and long hair, that curly mop thing doesn't work for her rat face LOL

Well, you're certainly not alone, stephle! This is a HUGE hit in Korea and elsewhere. Maybe Can'tGetEnough and you can stoke the flames here, since both of you are enjoying this one.

"Rat face"?! LOL! I can see that! I saw this actress on a K-variety show (no e-subs). She is definitely different looking from the usual K-actress, that's for sure. The Koreans describe her shape of face as "horse face" (as opposed to the very round "crab" face).

K-Drama: 아내의 유혹 (Lure of Wife/Temptation of Wife)


I have just watched a few episodes. I am rather surprised how unattractive the younger lead actors are.
Ar Ri is especially unattractive for a romantic lead and her character is so devious and nasty.

I think over at soompi, Ar Ri was given the nickname "Natasha" and EJ's husband "Boris" as in Natasha and Boris from the Rocky Bulwinkle show.

OMG just watched Sat's episode. Only in a kdrama can someone bleed that much yet still be assured by the doc that it's normal and have the patient walking home on her own steam.

To me that kind of stuff is the essence of what's great about this drama. It's the sheer over the top, in your face we're not pretending to even keep this real but you're sure going to have enjoy the ride that makes it currently the drama I most look forward to watching every week. emoticon

This drama is now showing on TWC without subtitles, tonight showed episode 3, is it worth the while to invest effort into following?

Re: K-Drama: 아내의 유혹 (Lure of Wife/Temptation of Wife)


I started watching this drama by accident and now I'm mesmerized by how bad it is. Its like watching a 1950's "B" movie.

I agree with everyone on this. The cast is very unattractive and the lead actor as a Romeo is almost laughable. He was lucky to get anyone to marry him and now this guy has the colossal nerve to cheat. Its so ridiculous as to be comic.

These could be the most ignorant and the meanest people I've ever seen in a drama. The great veterans are really wasted in this one. The whole thing is senseless.

I've watched 17 episodes so far.

I need a life!! emoticon

It actually is a night time daily drama...the funny thing it airs at 7:30PM in Korea.

I'm gonna start really watching around EP 15 when class reveal Image class spoiler Gyo-bin drags his wife into the sea and leaves her there to die
Okay, we've reached your 'benchmark ep' - and I'm lovin' every minute of it. Great no brainer. emoticon

Did they ever do the test to see if Neo (think that's his name) is really Idiot's child? At least the grandfather realizes its not the boy's fault and just an innocent victim. This child actor doesn't make me feel sorry for his character. Good crier, but I'm just not drawn to him.

If Lucy and Ethel had evil twins it would be Ar Ri and MIL. emoticon

Interesting how Idiot's younger sister is so completely on EJ's side and not an evil SIL.

FIL's younger sister - not making fun of her condition, I love her character. Cracked me up when she keeps talking to her SIL's two lady friends.

A little confused... does EJ have amnesia about her parents and brother? She recognized Idiot though.

Okay.... other family. Mom with (now deceased) daughter and adopted son. I truly understand her heartache, but jeez, what a turn around now with her adopted son. She was the one who arranged for him to marry so her daughter would stay away from him as a potential wife; but, now everything is his fault. Funny, whenever that actress plays roles with that hairstyle, she's evil. emoticon

K-Drama: 아내의 유혹 (Lure of Wife/Temptation of Wife)


were they dropping hints that Gyo Bin's aunt is really the daughter of Lady Min and Gyo Bin's father?
Gun Woo looks so much better with the short hair style (not that I am against longers styles on men but this style suits him much better)
Eun Jae must be made of rubber...she didn't even sustain a broken bone or sprain from the jump/fall of hers...a grotesque burn, yes but wouldn't you have expected some sort of breakage?
I don't believe EJ has amnesia at all. She is staying "dead" to protect herself and her family but seeing how her family is continuing to be harassed and bullied we better watch out, revenge is on the horizon. Although revengeful characteristics would seem out of place for Eun Jae, I think her protective nature is what will fuel the person that will emerge in the episodes to come. I just hope that Lady Min won't take her in as a replacement daughter and then Gun Woo will be faced with really loving a "sister" again. I think he has already begun to fall for her but the writers are playing with us in trying to fog the situation with hints that he wants to make up for how he feels he failed his sister.

Naturally that true, GB father stole her Lady Min's father fortune and ran off with her daughter, along the way something went wrong he failed to get her medical help, end result her retardness. (maybe)

EJ does not have amnesia, she is looking for ways to get her revenge, by being oblivious. GunWoo is driving me crazy, who does he love? Why can't he express his true feelings? Why is he such a wimp, or wish washy? Lady Min will help EJ because the have the same grievance with GB's father.

Another annoying character is EJ's father, boy does he get under my skin, he is lazy, an unaffective father/husband and still want to put them more in debt about a stupid tape of his music. Why is it that he cannot distinguish what AR is doing to his own daughter and let her go both him and that stupid son of his, how much more is he willing to take fron that skank.

I am sorry people but the clothes in this show is soooooo ugly and unstylish, AR clothes look horrible on her they hang wrong, they look like Sunday School dresses for children, the clothes has no style.

Sunday night's episode ranks as one of the worst episodes of any show that I can remember. It was so over the top. There are no words to really describe the melodramatic acting, and ranting and ravings.

I'm with you Pali. This could be the worst I've seen too, but its so bad I can't stop watching it. I want to see how far they can sink. The acting is even worse than the storyline. Even the veterans are doing a crappy job. Everyone's emoting all over the place.

Re: K-Drama: 아내의 유혹 (Lure of Wife/Temptation of Wife)


Yeah, the non-amnesia became obvious on Sunday's show.

Wonder what happened to the gal who took pictures with her camera phone when they were in the ocean?

I hope EJ haunts ex and MIL like a ghost.

Lady Min - how weired is it that the same actress has the same storyline... long lost daughter can be identified by a birthmark.

Pali & smoochie , think of this as a fun, campy drama. I think its a hoot! Curly Carrot , that's how she survives the fall. emoticon

CantGetEnough...I can't classify this as campy drama. I think of it as just unbelievable bad drama with some of the most unattractive people posing as actors.

Re: K-Drama: 아내의 유혹 (Lure of Wife/Temptation of Wife)


Jang Sul Hee is a very talented actress. I have enjoyed all her previous works and wondered if this was the first drama she undertook after the auto accident almost took her life. I do wish they would sometime cast her in a role where she is given power instead of the weepy, subserviant woman she most often portrays.

Casting of Aeri is good 'cuz she makes me loathe her character and reminds me too much of some people I would rather forget.

I'm almost as disgusted with the character Eun Jae as I am with Arie. She's such a doormat.
  
Star1, you're right about the actress playing Arie. I really, really hate her. I guess she's supposed to be over the top.

I can't believe I'm still watching this. It airs here as I'm just winding down for the night, so its convenient. Some of it is so far fetched that I do find myself shaking my head. Plus, the acting is so bad its mind boggling to see veteran actors, with long careers, doing this crummy drama.

I'm still watching, so I wonder if I need a new hobby. emoticon

The next thing we will have to stomach is EJ and the imbecil ex husband getting back? Please lets not hear that. EJ need to move on from that family and create a new solid family.

Re: K-Drama: 아내의 유혹 (Lure of Wife/Temptation of Wife)


Actress playing Lady Min is super in this new role. After seeing her in recent drama where she plays opposite type, it is nice to see her playing a very stylish, powerful professional woman. Can't wait to see moment when she destroys the construction empire, slamming all the jerks saying game over, creeps!. She will be the real thorn in Aeri's plans, I am sure, and will be the one to send Aeri packing after Lady Min gets through. So much revenge, so little time . . .

Enjoying this drama because it's not whisked away after a brief 20 mins. Totaly dislike those half-hour dramas. Life's too short to sit around waiting.
