Scent of a Woman (2011)

Just started this today because the recaps sounded oh-so-good and my friend keeps raving about it on Twitter. And I don't regret it one bit. After the immaturity and fluffiness of Heartstrings, it's a bit of a relief actually to watch something a little angsty and dare I say, sexy?

Ratings are pretty good too but I can't say I'm surprised, Lee Dong Wook sure packs a punch in his comeback drama after military service. TWO shower scenes in a row? And his expressions! Argh, Hyun Bin and Lee Dong Wook came back as new men. ;-)

The title makes me think back to the first time I watched the 1992 movie Scent of a Woman starring Al Pacino as a blind and bitter ex-soldier. Highly recommended coming-of-age story.

Curiously, both have themes of tango in them so maybe therein lies the similarity that links them together.

Al Pacino and Gabrielle Anwar

Lee Dong Wook and Kim Sun Ah

Darn, I've gone and gotten myself invested in another SBS drama! (Maybe I'm speaking too soon but I'll definitely be following this for a while...)

P/S: Still watching Heartstrings but I'm hanging on (barely) just for Ki Young, Jun Hee and Yoon Soo's wardrobe.
