쩐의 전쟁 The Original / War of Money – The Original

(As always, the more understandable English version is down below)
‘쩐의 전쟁’ 범죄물 드라마가예요. 다른 드라마가 2개 같은 이름이 있어요. 그래서 전 무슨 ‘쩐의 전쟁’을 봤어요? tvN의 쩐의 전쟁 the Original을 (위키백과) 봤어요. 이 드라마가 만화를 바탕으로 만들을 것 같아요.

나도, 돈이 없어요.

이 드라마에서 취지인씨는 피곤이 운전하고 교통 사고를 하고 보행자를 죽였는데. 경찰을 얘기 안 핬어요, 그러나 빨리 도망했어요. 근데 남자가 그 사고를 봤는데. 그리고 이 나쁜 남자는 말하지 않으면 남자한테 많은 돈이 받아줘요. 그래서 취지인는 사채업자한테서 돈을 빌리고 남자한테 보내요. 근데 나쁜 남자가 더 돈을 받고 싶고 인생을 위협해요. 뭘 할지 몰라고 사채업자가 돕는 것 물어봐요. 금나라 사채업자는 돕고 해소해요. 취지인씨는 감사하고 사채업자 팀이 가입해요. 그리고 취지인씨과 금나라씨와 다른 사채업자가 함께 돈이 빌리고 있고 간절한 사람을 도와요. 그래서 범죄자 친절해봐요.

‘쩐의 전쟁’에는 범죄자가 주인공인 것 조금 이상하고 흥미로워요. 주인공은 좋은 사람이 아니지만 매우 나빠지 않아요. 이 드라마에서 나쁜 사람들은 너무 너무 나빠요. 빚 있는 사람한테 폭력으로 결제를 받고, 신용 사기를 하고, 가족의 인생을 위협해요. 그리고 성폭력이 많은데 재미 별로 없어요. 강제 추행을 하는 사람이 형벌을 받을 때 해소 있어요. 성폭력이 때문에 이 드라마는 가장 난폭하는데 성인만 볼 수 있어요. (난 영어로 블로그 글에 그 성폭력을 있는 게 더 생각해요.)

난 에피소드의 이야기들이 좋아하고 배우도 좋아해요. 근데 이 드라마 위해 더 돈이 있으면 좋겠어요. 액션 장면이 흔들은 카메라로 만들었고 스턴트 와이어를 보여요.

난 ‘쩐의 전쟁’를 좋아해요. 당신 폭력 많은 드라마 볼 수 있으면 ‘쩐의 전쟁’ 한번 봐주세요.

In English

War of Money – The Original is a crime TV series. There are two War of Money, which makes things confusing (some websites mix the two versions up). There is SBS’s ‘War of Money’ and there is tvN’s ‘War of Money – The Original’. I watched tvN’s ‘War of Money’. I think both versions are actually based on a Comic.

I also have no money.

In this series Choi Ji In drives tired around and overruns a pedestrian, who dies on location. Instead of reporting it to the Police she does a hit and run. Unfortunately some guy saw the accident and now blackmails her. If she doesn’t pay up he will report the accident to the police. Choi Ji In goes to loan sharks to bring up the money. But the bad guy isn’t satisfied asks for more and more money. In here desperation she actually asks the load sharks for help. Geum Na Ra, one of the load sharks, actually helps here and clears the situation. Choi Ji In is thankful and later joins the loan shark team. So Choi Ji In, Geum Na Ra and the other load sharks lend money and help desperate people. So they’re friendly criminals.

In ‘War of Money’ loan sharks are the protagonists, which is a little strange but interesting. Our protagonist aren’t exactly the nicest people, but they are extraordinary evil. However in this series the bad guy are bad, really bad. The get money from people who own money by force, do scams, threaten lifes of families. And there a lot of sexual violence, which isn’t fun at all. The sexual offender at least get some punishment at towards the end, which is somewhat a relive. So this series is defiantly only for adults only.
Now how bad is it? Let me pull out some statistics. In the first episodes there are two attempted rapes and more sexual harassment. In the second episode there a rape and forced prostitution. And these things happen not really off screen. Holy shit, in a TV series? This pushes this series from the ‘light weigh fun’ corner to the ‘really dark stuff’ corner. And it sometimes seems that this series is to dark for its own good. Later on I sometimes felt like they added unnecessary sex scenes, because the already ‘earned’ a hard R-Rating in the first episodes.

I like the story in of the series and the acting is ok. However a higher budget for the production would be good. The action scenes are filmed with shaky camera. And sometime you can easily spot the stunt wires.

All in all, I like War of Money. If you can watch violent stuff, it worth a watch.
