Synopsis / Plot / Review
OCN boldly presents Temptation of Eve, a sexy thriller about the lust and temptation experienced by four women and their victims of love. Now available in English subtitles, Temptation of Eve looks to Hollywood’s Basic Instinct as its model, creating sensationalism and interest in a genre rarely tackled in the history of Korean film. Despite being aired on cable, one of the drama’s four episodes, Episode 3: Her Own Technique, scored ratings comparable to that of a top-rated drama on a major broadcast channel. The main attractions of Temptation of Eve are its sophisticated cinematography, shocking but meticulously created intimate scenes, grisly murder plots, and the complex portrayal of its characters.
