Should You Watch Seo Ye-Ji’s Comeback Drama ‘Eve’?
Accusations of bullying during Seo Ye-Ji’s school years also popped up around the same time, causing a halt to the actress’ rising fame after her 2020 drama It’s Okay To Not Be Okay.
When her comeback drama Eve was announced months after the issues were made public, K-drama fans’ reception were divided.
Both Kim Jung-Hyun and Seo Ye-Ji received backlash after their respective statements. But since both parties already concluded the issue, the controversy slowly died down. Fast forward to today and it seems like Seo Ye-Ji’s drama is performing well.
Not sure if you should tune in to the show? Whether you love Seo Ye-Ji, hate her, or not sure what to feel about her, here are reasons to convince you that Eve is worth the hype.
The drama started airing 1st June and runs every Wednesday and Thursday, 11:30PM KST on tVN. It’s also available for streaming via Viki and Viu. The series will wrap up with 16 episodes.
Reasons to watch Seo Ye-Ji’s comeback drama Eve
1. The cast is simply phenomenal
That said, Park Byung-Eun perfectly matches Seo Ye-Ji’s powerful onscreen presence. His versatility as Kang Yoon-Kyung makes the character equally agitating yet interesting. It comes to no surprise since he’s a real scene-stealer in his performances in Assassination, Kingdom, and In Our Prime.
Lastly, Yoo Sun completes this powerhouse cast as Han So-Ra, Park Byung-Eun’s obsessive wife. Yoo Sun’s upfront and vicious portrayal of her character is a great parallel to Seo Ye-Ji’s delivery of La-El, making their femme fatale appeal equally compelling.
2. The plot is mostly unpredictable
We wouldn’t want to spoil too much, but we’d like to commend the show for its smart pacing. This especially applies to delivering huge payoffs for subplots they build up on earlier into the story.
3. The cinematography is beautifully dramatic
4. The scoring is well-executed
Eve uses sound wonderfully, complementing the outstanding cinematography. The drama knows how to use music to match the mood of the scenes without necessarily overtaking the entire atmosphere. Scoring is also used to further elaborate on the characters’ emotions and thoughts even without dialogue.
Objectively speaking, Eve is without a doubt another K-drama masterpiece. And previous controversies aside, it’s definitely worth the watch in our book.
