Veteran actor Jae Ha (Park Sung Woong) has made a name for himself as a man truly devoted to his craft. Taking keen interest in every aspect of theater production, he actively seeks out ways in which he can help, doing everything he can to ensure each production he’s a part of is of the highest caliber. As devoted as he is to the production side of things, he’s even more devoted when it comes to carrying out his roles. Notorious for his method acting, Jae Ha thinks nothing of adopting the personality of the character he plays to such an extent that he becomes that character until the curtain falls on the final production.

Polar opposite to Jae Ha is idol star, Young Woo (Oh Seung Hoon). Young and pretentious, Young Woo has little respect for the theater or his colleagues; but all of that changes when Jae Ha takes him under his wing. Intrigued by Jae Ha’s passion, Young Woo is inspired to follow in his elder’s footsteps. Dedicating himself to his new role, Young Woo adopts Jae Ha’s practice of method acting, soon becoming the character he must portray.

As the two actors spend more time together, the lines between reality and fantasy are blurred, allowing feelings between them begin to grow. With emotions high, the pair soon find themselves trapped in a tangled web of their own making. Embroiled in a scandal so severe it could ruin everything, the two must decide if their love is worth the sacrifice.

A tempestuous story of forbidden love, “Method” is a 2017 drama film directed by Bang Eun Jin.

My Thoughts
★★★★★  Stars

Not to be over dramatic... But what the hell was that? I mean, while yes... it was very intense, it was also way to complex and I'm dumb, okay. I feel like this might need to be explained to me like a toddler. I swear I don't mean to take away from this movie in any way. I'm just... confused? I feel like I should add "mystery" to the tags! LOL

Can we talk about the acting though? Like holy crap - can we say skills? I mean come on, Park Sung Woong? You know right off the bat something is going to be amazing if he plays in it. The man has hella skills! Everyone in this movie did though. Not going to lie, forgot it was a movie a few times. Felt like I was entering into someone's life. Wonder if they feel violated... lol I'm kidding but for real, I did enjoy the acting.

Overall, I enjoyed this movie, I just felt like it was missing a lot of information that would probably help people be less confused? I mean when it starts off, it feels like it started in the middle of the movie and while the actors had their own "characters" to play, the characters also had characters to play... which is overload for starting right off with something. The ending was so confusing to me as well.. like who was for real, who was fake? did they both mean it or fake it? I mean come on!! Gotta give me something here! I don't like being confused at all so I think that's why I took as many stars away as I did. I just... confusion, man, I hate it with a passion. It's why I don't read/watch many "mysteries".
I feel like my rating it kinda cruel on that level because you can have someone okay with mystery but still have the same questions I do and they rate it from 8-10 stars. So when it comes to my rating on this movie, please watch the movie anyway if you are given the chance. This is one of the rare times I think I'll ever say "don't pay attention to my rating". Which hopefully makes sense. Haha
