Some Korean plays make the audience angry because they give the villain a too gentle ending, typically like the supporting woman who makes Jisoo’s lover fly away.
At the end of every movie, what the audience always wants is an ending for the good and the bad to be punished. However, recently some Korean screenwriters like to do the opposite. While the main characters suffer a tragic ending, there are supporting characters who are punished too lightly in Korean films .
BANG JE SOO – VOICE
In part 2 of the popular Korean screen Voice series, Bang Je Soo (Kwon Yool) is the villain who has caused many horrible cases. He is also the one who caused the incident of the captain of the Special Investigation Team that caused him to die. After appearing, the audience all said that Bang Je Soo should receive a heavy punishment for the crimes he has committed.
However, strangely Bang Je Soo is like the “pet” of the scriptwriter. Not only was he outlawed, he also narrowly escaped death several times. Looking back at the members of the Special Investigation Team, they all suffered, but the villain lived so long that the audience was extremely inhibited. Even this character is expected to continue to appear in season 5.
KANG SO YOUNG – SCHOOL 2015
One of the evil women who make the audience hate the Korean small screen the most is Kang So Young (Cho Soo Hyang) in School 2015 . So that the rich children have both money and power. Kang So Young constantly forms a group to catch Eun Bi (Kim So Hyun) and make her do stupid things. Later, when she transferred schools and met again, Kang So Young continued to use her position to harm the two sisters Eun Bi and Eun Byeol.
With cruel actions beyond what a student can do, the audience all think that Kang So Young should receive an appropriate ending. However , the scriptwriter of School 2015 only let her suffer a too light ending to realize her wrong actions. This ending made many viewers extremely disappointed.
JU SEOK KYUNG – PENTHOUSE
Referring to the villains with a beautiful ending on the Korean screen, it is impossible to ignore Ju Seok Kyung (Han Ji Hyun) in Penthouse . Born in the richest family in the top 1 movie, Ju Seok Kyung is extremely arrogant, selfish and always wants everyone to obey him. From bullying classmates to aiding Ju Dan Tae in doing evil are all unforgivable actions that Ju Seok Kyung has committed.
Yet until part 3 of Penthouse , Ju Seok Kyung was still hugged by her biological mother and even protected by those around her. The ending of this pompous lady was criticized a lot at the time Penthouse 3 ended.
BOON OK – SNOWDROP
The movie Snowdrop is the first collaborative project of Jisoo (BLACKPINK) and Jung Hae In. In this drama, there is a half-season villain that makes the audience hate and hate that is Boon Ok (Kim Hye Yoon). With a petty, jealous personality, Boon Ok betrayed the confidence of the female lead and indirectly caused the male lead to “fly”. With actions that are both selfish and sly, the audience thinks that she must have a bad ending.
Unfortunately, the writer of Snowdrop does not think so. By the end of the movie, Boon Ok simply feels sorry for the mistake he made for everyone and then lives happily as if nothing happened. This ending, although many people feel angry, is said to be suitable for the context in the movie.
Although not the villain’s final boss, it is undeniable that the above characters have committed a lot of crimes. Whatever the reason, the audience is not satisfied with the punishment that is too light for those who have done evil.
