A well thought out Drama
22 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Five omnibus style drama about sexually themed stories. Each of the stories are well conceived, and enjoyable to watch. Many of the actors are good looking, and adds to the story.

They are erotic stories, but is not just sexploitation, or excuse to put sexual scenes on the screen. In other words, there's good story to go with the visuals. I'm sure each viewer will have their own favorite story, but I liked "His Concern", "33rd man", and "Believe in the Moment".

Each of the stories are shot beautifully, and the presentation was well thought out. What adds more to the story is the attractiveness of the stars. Who could resist such temptations ? So while looking ordinary, each story has an element in them that makes us wish that it was our story.

The producers, and the director did a superb job, of putting subtle eroticism into the story. This is one of the better erotic drama from Korea, and is recommended for viewing.

7.5/10
