There's nothing wrong with this - which sometimes is high praise. it's not a great classic but it's a nice piece of entertainment, with good writing, good acting and nicely developed characters. Lots of laughs. As someone who manages a museum, it was special fun for me, since all the talk about cultural treasures is my daily concern. It made a nice break from taking it all too seriously.
This drama is exquisite. It's not the usual K-pop light entertainment. It's a sensitive portrayal of two people who fall in love and hold on to love in spite of social and cultural prohibitions. The cinematograpphy is understated and creates a thoughtful yet sensual mood. The love scene in his aprtment is one of the most touching I have ever seen - or, not seen, actually (you need to see it to get that). Her face at the end, looking through the fence, is a stunning contrast to who she was at the beginning - loves makes us free. Prisons are in the mind. But this drama won't be a hit with you if you are not willing to do some adult emotional investment. If you don't like it, come back in 20 years.
Quite nice modern version, but the 1943 black and white with Orson Welles chewing up the scenery will always be my favorite. For a modern re-telling, though, this is quite good. Bronte dramas are always darker than Jane Austen, and this is no exception, but this production lightens it considerably. Ruth Wilson is really the best Jane ever, too.
