[Info/VOD] Untold Scandal (***)

Untold Scandal (currently available on Netflix) is the fifth filmed version of the French novel and play Les Liaisons Dangereuses.  North American audiences are probably already familiar with one of the  other versions: the John Malkovich costume drama, the Sarah Michelle  Gellar high school version, or perhaps the Colin Firth period piece.  This version was made in Korea in 2003, and while it is generally very  faithful to the plot, it also offers some new wrinkles; most notably a  tension between Confucianism and Catholicism, casting the innocent  virgin character as the latter. I have not seen many Korean films apart  from their most high-profile releases, so I do not know the actors very  well, but I was impressed with the cast, especially Bae Yong-Joon as the  seducer Jo-Won and Lee So-Yeon (damsu: it's Jeon Do Yeon not lee so-yeon) in the Cecile role. I was also very  impressed with the gorgeous art direction, costume design, and  cinematography; it is really quite a beautiful film, and enjoyable to  watch despite the familiarity of the story.

Speaking of, Wikipedia informs me that China and Korea are  collaborating on yet another version, this time entitled Dangerous  Liaisons again, with HK stars Ziyi Zhang and Cecilia Cheung. I am  looking forward to it.

"..to remind us of the role of BYJ in Untold Scandal. Here i'll post some of 'Untold Scandal -VOD' made ​​by fans. Please enjoy it!" ^__^
