Ahhh, and now with date rape and attempted murder.

WHAT?

This is the plot of the currently airing and very successful kdrama Temptation of a Wife. I got curious what it was about and finally looked it up.

One night Goo Eun Jae (heroine) got drunk and Jung Gyo Bin took this opportunity to take advantage of her. Eun Jae and Gyo Bin got married but their marriage is not a very blissful marriage....Gyo Bin decided that he did not want to remain married to Eun Jae and tried to kill her. Eun Jae was presumed to have drowned...Months later, Eun Jae is back for revenge but she presumes the identity of another woman, Min So Hee, who had killed herself. How will Gyo Bin react to a girl who looks exactly like his presumed dead wife, Eun Jae? Will he be tempted by So Hee?

You have got to be kidding me. The only way this would be watchable if the bulk of the drama was her going Kill Bill on everyone but why do I get the sense that she and the lovely rapist/attempted murderer husband will get back together. WTF?????

I have NEVER seen a kdrama have something so repulsive. Even in East of Eden, where I had HUGE issues with that storyline, when they had one of the main characters rape another, it was portrayed as unforgivable and he spent years and years trying to atone. I still loathed the fact that in the end the woman decided she loved him, but at least there he really did work to be a better human being and tried to make her happy since (ha! dieanywaypigperson) and there was no attempted murder. This? AAAAARGH DIE
