I Love You drama lambasted for being too mature

Based on the same-titled manga by Huh Young Man, SBS “I Love You” starring Ahn Jae Wook, Seo Ji Hye, Gong Hyung Jin, Hwan Hee, Jo Mi Ryung, etc has just finished airing two episodes this week. But with many of its lines, scenes overly mature and suggestive plus bed scenes, viewers are debating whether the disclaimer at the start saying “For 15 years and Above” should be raised.

Ahn Jae Wook and Seo Ji Hye in I Love You drama

In the drama, the two main leads, Ahn Jae Wook and Seo Ji Hye got to know each other through a misunderstanding and with ncouragement from friends, starts dating. Ahn Jae Wook’s character is 35 years old while Seo Ji Hye’s character is 21, a 14 years age gap. Not long after, they have a one-night stand and Seo Ji Hye’s character gets pregnant. At this point, the topic of “Baby of marriage” has already got viewers irate as they are still deeply conservative in nature. The couple even talked that as long as they liked each other, sex before marriage isn’t an issue which made this scene became even more debatable.

Dialouge between another married couple, Gong Hyung Jin and Jo Mi Ryung was lambasted as being overly mature and suggestive. Jo Mi Ryung’s character who was anxious to have a baby said to her husband, “Today is the day where we should do that thing.” Another scene where Gong Hyung Jin’s character returns home while Jo Mi Ryung’s character is preparing dinner, he said, “Another place of mine is hungry.” The ensuing scene being the bedroom. All of these are evidence which the viewers points out that the drama is overly mature and some suggested that the age limit disclaimer should be raised for it.

Many parents are worried that with their children still young, the overly mature theme of the drama might be a bad influence for them and strongly suggests that SBS do something to correct it.

  1. i find it funny how koreans are “conservative” but korean entertainment has been getting more and more raunchy. haha. they like it but they just don’t admit it. πŸ˜›

  2. Good that drama can be a little controversial, just as long as it doesn’t jeopardize the rating and airing :p Probably not.

  3. But they were OK with adultery?
    I thought My Man’s Woman did really well in the ratings. Well, I have no idea how Korean society works.
