Some News Report on A Wolf's Attraction Movie ...

miniphoto1188.jpg

'Temptation of Wolves' suffers from melodramatic plot (2004/07/22)

It is tempting to jump to criticizing "Temptation of Wolves," directed by Kim Tae-gyun, considering its cheesy plot and poor moviemaking quality. But this doesn't really matter to the target audience - girls in their teens and 20s (perhaps 30s).

The most important selling point of this movie is that two cute guys play the main title roles. Whenever they pose for a nice shot or shed tears, ohhhs and ahhhs broke out of the mostly female audience at a preview earlier this week.

The film opens with a fight scene of high school students with cries of wolves echoing in the background (yes, it's corny, but there's nothing you can do about it since this movie hinges on such boring cinematic devices).

Han-gyeong (Lee Cheong-ah), a plain-looking girl from the country who has transferred to a high school in Seoul, happens to witness the fistfight. Before she realizes what's happening, two handsome boys fall in love with her.

Why? That's a very good question. But the answer is nowhere to be found, at least in this movie. Although Han-gyeong is far from beautiful or cute, the two boys just chase her throughout the first half of the film. Ban Hae-won (Cho Han-sun) is a good-looking high school student. He fights well, rides a motorcycle and drives a luxury car, though he lacks a license. So popular is Hae-won that whenever he hops on a bus, girls quickly snap photos of him with their digital camera phones.

Chung Tae-sung (Kang Dong-won) is kind-hearted and has a killer smile. He is very protective of Han-gyeong, calling her "sister." His mood swings every five minutes, suggesting that there's something wrong in his relationships with Han-gyeong.

The film focuses on the rivalry between Hae-won and Tae-sung for Han-gyeong's heart. With pride and love at stake, they intensify their efforts to woo her, and she finds it extremely difficult to choose between them.

When the boys fight and run on the street, the film picks up some speed and momentum. But the story loses its pace in the second half, especially when a typical melodrama theme unfolds.

One day, Han-gyeong happens to realize that there is a reason behind Tae-sung's affection. In short, they are not supposed to love each other because of a sad family history.

Even when the audience is not ready, the film continues to present tear-jerking scenes. And it is annoying to see these high school students constantly drink soju (Korean hard liquor). No matter how realistic such scenes may be, the film seems to encourage students to engage in undesirable behavior.

Teenage romance is hardly surprising. But it is still embarrassing to see Tae-sung call himself "seobangnim" (hubby) and gesture as though he and Han-gyeong are newlyweds. It is unbearably tempting to scream at these wayward students to shape up. Yet it's a losing game because the female audience screams much louder when Hae-won and Tae-sung appear on the screen and show off their attractive faces.

Internet Writer Guiyeoni Sparks "Hallyu" Wave in Japan (2005/03/08)

Guiyeoni, a new-generation writer who writes novels on the Internet, has recently visited Japan to publish the Japanese version of her novel "Temptation of Wolves." This two-volume novel is a love story about teenagers. A movie based on this story will be released in Japan on March 19.

"Temptation of Wolves" rose to fame in 2001 when Guiyeoni began writing it on the Internet. Publishers and filmmakers decided to produce a movie and publish the novel as a book when it became popular with high school girls by word of mouth.

The book, which was published in December 2002, became a bestseller, selling some 300,000 copies. In July 2004, the movie based on the novel made headlines for starring such top-rated actors as Kang Dong-won, Jo Han-seon and Lee Cheong-ah, who played the lead roles.

"I wanted to tell a pure-hearted teenage love story and describe things only teenagers can do," said Guiyeoni. When asked about her next story, she said, "I am still very young, so I cannot write about the world of adults. I just want to relish my young feelings for now."

i must admit, i really did not like this movie. The acting skills were lacking and the plot was inconsistent - you don't even know why Hae-won likes Han-gyeong and incestuous relationship is just a no go zone.

Nice soundtrack though!

I just downloaded this movie...I cried...a lot. And Kang Dong Won is hot. So if the other dude.

Oh yeah, you know that song that plays when Ban Hae-won forces Han-gyeong into his luxury car? Can someone tell me who the artist and song is? I have the video but hving no knowledge of Hangul really limits me.

Kang Dong Won is more like a little brother who love his Noona ...

Actually i think he looks hot but also cute in this ...

Of course not as though looking as Jo Han Sun ...

I have to admit that the 2 main actors Jo Han Sun and Kang Dong Won is the one who make this movie so popular back then ...
