(KPOPLINE) - As a reinterpretation of the Chinese classic novel "Journey to the West", Hwayugi has many controversial scenes like this hot one.
As a remake of the classic Chinese film 'Journey to the West', the drama received a lot of expectations because the fresh plot revolves around the love among the three main characters which are 'Ma-Wang' Hwi Chul, Son Oh-gong and 'Sam-jang' Sun Mi.
In order to fit the modern context, the drama is "varied", which Sam-jang becomes a beauty, then Son Oh-gong falls in love with Sam-jang while he's bound to his protective role towards Seon-mi. Perhaps to many people who have loved and lived with the Chinese version of Journey to the West, these fictitious details are unacceptable.
It's said that the drama is both strange and familiar when the characters are too familiar with many fans but the plot is completely different. Even at the end of the film, 'Hwayugi' also makes audiences shocked because of the hot scene between Sunmi and Oh Gong.
