Provocative scenes in K-drama 'Hierarchy' disappoint viewers

Despite its romantic K-drama feel for teens, "Hierarchy" also explores the surprising relationship between Lee Woo Jin (played by Lee Won Jung), a student, and Ms. Han (played by Byeon Seo Yoon), a teacher at Jooshin High School. . Because of Ms. Han's profession and the fact that Woo Jin is the son of a political figure, they decided to keep their relationship low-key. Some episodes also showed their intimate moments, which viewers considered explicit and unnecessary to the premise of the story.

'Hierarchy' Producer Responds to Viewers About These Provocative Scenes

In a report, producer Bae Hyun Jin discusses the differences between this Netflix teen K-drama and other youth-oriented K-dramas.

I too appreciate the absence of sexual scenes but on the other hand it's still more than an absence! The kisses are sorely lacking in passion, barely touching the lips!!! Without resorting to explicit scenes, we can suggest. It's true that we come to wonder if there is an intimate life in Korea... But there is, without a doubt. Even if celebrities always have to hide I think. Yet they are also human people who have the right to their lives… To come back to this series, it’s amazing to talk about intimate scenes!!! We barely see a piece of skin, so the reactions seem completely absurd to me.

This drama is very exciting and I appreciate the content of the register and product, but I face a delicate theme that is very important to me. Dietro una narrazione caratterizzata da temi romantici, in realtà sono state masse in rilievo, come possibili fonti di riflessione, le conseguenze della rapida ascesa del systeme capitalistico in un Paese che culturalmente conserve principi molto lontani da quelli da esso veicolati e dove le persone communi sono state travolte da questa svolta economica. In the drama of social disruption, the sound is clearly evident, as realistically the sound in any case does not exist and can disrupt the personality of the person. This is the relevant element. The “intimate scene” was so riferiscono and commenti critici itso irrilevanti. Finally a more realistic spaccato. My room considers the view of the Korean public under highly conditioned and influenced by the capitalist ideology.

to your bet

Oi I loved this series it hurts a little to see the power of some but the end our that young people can change because I think they didn't realize what they were doing it can be educational for some people who bully at school

When I read these thoughts it leaves me speechless!!! How do they live? The intimate scenes are so modest that we end up wondering how they behave in real life!!! Regularly over 30 years old they blindly obey their parents, they don't have girlfriends etc….it's almost that who bothers me in dramas they really live in a parallel world

The production of the film does not respond in any way to the subject raised. I hope that kdramas will not copy the genre across the Atlantic with their increasingly obscene scenes, and their naked actors/actresses everywhere! It would be a monumental waste...

Idol's bestie

It's just the fact that kdramas are prudish that attracts me
If they become like the Americans then it becomes irrelevant to me

Kalaee

To not see. Lol. But that's just turning a blind eye. Fortunately, it is total hypocrisy that these producers are trying to denounce.

to your bet

Agree with you, I didn't see anything shocking or vulgar

Likewise for me, kdramas are appreciated for their modesty, and I only watch them for that.
