The content of Scent of a woman really did not interest me, frankly. With a plot to find the meaning of life, Scent of a woman is not excellent enough for me to ponder, the focus of the film is not deep so it is quite rambling, some details are cumbersome so it is not expensive. That said, but before watching the movie, I already knew this, because the series of classic American love movies that I watched, there was no movie that made me “feel” at all. But Scent of a woman follows the sentimental taste of a little American and a little Korean.
That said, I like Scent of a woman so much, I like it enough to definitely rank it as my favorite Korean movie this year. I’ve only watched 10 episodes but dare say that enough so you can see I like it big enough to dare to believe no matter what the remaining 6 episodes are like. So where is the charm of Scent of a woman? Try to analyze to see how sexy Scent of a woman is.
Character Personality: It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a Korean movie where the characters have such a reasonable and fitting personality. The character’s personality is not deliberately unique like some Korean movies often have. The personality shown is consistent with the inner contradictions, not on the tendons, but sometimes very soft and flexible. There’s a bit of a humdrum in life, not as impressive as a “movie”. The character’s personality is appropriately placed in the circumstances that nurture the personality, then people explore the new environment and seek the perception that is more suitable for them to change and embrace life.
Yeon-jae in Scent of a woman is a bit indented like that, Yeon-jae’s contradictions break up in the first episodes and then are packed up by the scriptwriter in the later episodes. Although it lacks surprise and explosiveness for a child who is quite careless like me to relate, but I am sure Yeon-jae is easy to relate to many other audiences, her energy + endurance In keeping with her 34-year long-suffering personality development, her level of escape is well-packaged with the background. Yeon-jae is a girl who is not built to be admired for “daring” to do this, “daring” to do another, but to relate and share with small, somewhat “inadvertent” desires. and “romantic”.
The story of her emotional content is the same, just a little bit forward and backward, having more entanglements and worries about others than herself. I also wonder if anyone is so good? LOL, I’m not that good and don’t want to be that good either. But thinking about myself, there are also people like that, good people, whose love story is a bit roundabout and self-defeating, but because they “value” that love story with their human outlook as well. just like their lives should be. Yeon-jae is built not so multidimensionally so it’s not impressive, but the way Yeon-jae is impressive is to let the audience go by her side to worry about her a little, to share with her her a little, and irked her a little about her jerks and turns in love affairs. ^^
Ji-wook is better for me to relate to, maybe Ji-wook’s outlook on life is closer to me and the person I love, Ji-wook’s needy and needy style I can understand rather than simply relate like Yeon-jae. Ji-wook is absent-minded, flirting with a little bit of this and that, but when it comes to love, it’s passionate and childish, frantic and more explosive. Ji-wook’s personality with the premise is slower than Yeon-jae, so it was only through episode 10 that the scriptwriter packed it up, so that Ji-wook had to know the limit of his dreams. The way Ji-wook found his dream to break himself in episodes 8, 9, 10 is a movie for the audience. I thank the writer for giving a gift of up to 3 episodes to make Ji-wook happy, to let Ji-wook drown in Yeon-jae’s love and smile. Starting from episode 11 is when Ji-wook has to learn a new lesson in life, the lesson of “accepting” reality as it is, limiting dreams to dream, not dreaming and falling in love. .
Scent of a woman scriptwriter in her previous work, Dr Champ, also chose the end of episode 10 to include this classic lesson (of American movies) to push the drama up. The way she pushes this drama makes sense to limit her dreams and love, so it’s life, not a movie, life isn’t always a dream and it’s always a poem to let your dreams loose. Happiness must also have its limits, it also requires exchanging one thing for another, it takes a lot of learning to accept that life is not always the way you want it to be. This scriptwriter dares to interrupt the audience’s dreams so I like it, she gives the audience a dream but also dares to take it back for that dream so that it goes on a arduous path and then has achievements, so I think it makes sense. and has content. Dreaming needs a limit, so the following episodes may test the audience in more patience, creating inhibitions in the audience so that the value of “happiness” that the film brings at the end is more valuable, no must be expensive, but worth it.
