Storyline

Bokgu, the orphaned son of an abusive mobster, who idolizes the older brother who raised him. Believing that famous actress Cha Eunsuk abandoned his brother and caused the attempted suicide that left his brother hospitalized in a coma, Bokgu plots his revenge, landing a job as Eunsuk's bodyguard in order to try to seduce her, destroy her reputation and her career. Bokgu is bound by both guilt and affection to Han Dajung a childhood friend who pulled him from a fire and saved his life, but was burned and left with permanent scars. He stays with her in a life he despises, as strong-arm man for her loan shark business. As Bokgu exacts his revenge on Eunsuk, he is torn between his growing feelings for her and his sense of obligation to Dajung, between his duty to avenge his brother and the increasing uncertainty that his revenge is justified. His external actions contrast with his inner turmoil and, finally, he is filled with self-loathing at his revenge's successful result. Written by isilvalie

Unusual and worth a watch but ultimately unsatisfying.
18 September 2010 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is a strange story with some very dark themes. It starts of with the plot looking a little like Dangerous Liaisons but moves into different territory as it progresses.

There are a few surprises as we go a long, there is a little humour and the lead actress is very beautiful.

The acting is mostly good especially from the two leads, the actress playing Dajung is the weakest cast member and is often unconvincing.

Unfortunately it does move into more melodrama as it progresses and becomes a bit to much like soap opera at times.

They also should have ended it one episode earlier, everything was tied up and resolved and then they added an extra episode of very confused plot that tries to inject some pathos but instead comes across as very contrived.

It was worth watching once but I can't imagine wanting to re-watch it.
