And just how strong is your love?...

The cast in "Innocent Thing" was quite good. I wasn't familiar with the people they had cast for the movie, but the cast was quite good, and they did great jobs with their given roles and characters. Especially the two leads, Hyuk Jang and Bo-ah Jo. They had a great on-screen chemistry, and they really performed quite well and convincingly.

As for the characters, then writer Tae-gyun Kim had definitely managed to put together a very interesting and colorful character gallery to help bring the story to life. And it works nicely, because the characters are characters that you can easily relate to and sympathize with.

"Innocent Thing" is driven by a solid story and well-fleshed out characters. And it was really working out so well and it made the movie all the more enjoyable.

Story-wise, then "Innocent Thing" then I found the story that writer Sung-min Lee had concocted to be rather entertaining and well-thought through. And director Tae-gyun Kim did a great job in translating it from script and paper to visual presentation on the screen. The story does deal with a taboo topic, one that surfaces in society every now and then in the news. Which, just makes the entire story all the more convincing and believable.

Some things in the movie didn't make all that much sense. For example, why would the student have her teachers private phone number. And some of the behavior expressed by some of the characters just didn't always make the most of sense. But hey, people act differently of course, so that would be justified.

The pacing of the movie was quite good, and they had opted for some very interesting choice of music to accompany the movie. Now, I am not saying that the music was bad, far from it. It was actually quite becoming and fitting for the mood and atmosphere of the movie.

"Innocent Thing" is listed as a drama and thriller, don't put too much hope and expectations into the thriller aspect, because it wasn't there in an abundance. The attempts of introducing thrills to the story were a bit forced and generic, and very much like something done in previous movies such as "Fatal Attraction" for example. That being said, don't get me wrong here, because "Innocent Thing" is a rather enjoyable movie given its storyline, great acting, good character gallery and its editing and cinematography.
