Cast & Credits
I watched it 2 years ago and at the time I was 18/19.
Once me alone and then with my parents.
It is the longest drama I've watched but still 2 short.
It has the most amazing revenge plot ever in any drama! It was just 2 perfect. And my parents was really crazy about it 2.
The leading lady is beautiful, her cheating husband is HOT (lol), the guy who falls for her is sooo cute, the evil and backstabbing people around her are SOOOO killable (if u can say that).
This drama plays with all of your emotions and makes you literary wanna go inside and twist some of the characters necks. Uhmmm I would have enjoyed that. But don't worry the leading lady does that pretty well on her own. No need to help once she has started.
Damn it was satisfying. I loved the way she changed 180*. She is really beautiful. I liked it that the leading couple were young. ^^
It has 149 ep. but goddd I wish it never ended. When I watched it I was stuck 2 the comp. hour after hour. I suggest u watch it all. It is REALLY recommendable.
Plus it has a great ending. U will love it. I guaranty it.
Or else you can get your hours back. xD
The romantic betrayal that formed the basis for revenge happened in episode 1. Once the betrayal was revealed, there was a very long flashback that lasted for quite a few episodes. I made sure I watched each flashback episode so that I could enjoy Ga-Eun's revenge. When the flashbacks ended, Ga-Eun was in revenge mode for basically the remainder of the drama.
Park Eun-Hye was well cast as Ga-Eun. Lee Joo-Hyeon's Jung Woo & Seo Yo-Jeong's Mi-Ran were the perfect villains. My favorite character was Park Kwang-Hyun's Ha Jae-Bum who was consistently a sensitive, caring and romantic person. Unfortunately, I didn't feel a real spark between Jae-Bum & Ga-Eun as they were portrayed by the two leads.
PINK LIPSTICK wasn't perfect: it dragged in spots, the revenge element fizzled (I say this because the intensity of the revenge wasn't there towards the end), and everything was resolved just a little too easily. However, PL worked for me despite its shortcomings. It stayed true to the "love-betrayal-revenge-love" theme. The music was well chosen for the scenes. A musical plus was Chopin's 'Tristesse'that was played (after watching AUTUMN TALE, I love this piece whenever it's included in a drama).
This was good as revenge dramas go. Even so, I wouldn't spend this much time to rewatch it.
