SYNOPSIS

A triangular relationship between Eo Woo-dong, her husband Lee Dong, and fantasy character Moo-gong, highlights on the first half of the Joseon Dynasty and portrays the contradicted life of the high class people, criticizing the modern day Korean society. [Han Cinema]

IN SHORT

20 Years after the original, 어우동 (Eo Woo-Dong) comes back to – at least on paper – titillate the viewers, but there's a tiny little problem: back in the day it was talented director Lee Jang-Ho at the helm, Lee Bo-Hee and her metric tons of sex appeal as the voluptuous entertainer, and two top notch veterans like Ahn Sung-Gi and Kim Myeong-Gon surrounding her. Whereas when you look at director Lee Su-Seong's career all you see are made-for-IPTV skin flicks, Song Eun-Chae has nowhere near the acting skills or the sex appeal to pull off a role of this magnitude, and Baek Do-Bin (as hard as he tries) is no Ahn Sung-Gi. In its own right it could have at least proved a diverting erotic drama, but even the sex isn't inspired. Horrible acting, creatively bankrupt storytelling, and late night softcore porn-like “choreography” make this an unnecessary, even annoying follow-up to a classic of 80s Korean cinema.
