SBS drama "That Winter, The Wind Blows" The physical contact between Jo In Sung and Song Hye Kyo is making the viewers uncomfortable.
Jo In Sung and Song Hye Kyo are currently featured in the SBS drama "That Winter, The Wind Blows" together as Oh Soo, the poker gambler and Oh Young, a blind heiress, respectively.
The past episodes of this drama have shown Oh Soo purposely approaching Oh Young in order to get $7.8 million in order to save his life. Oh Young is an heiress who is unaware that her real biological brother had died from a car accident so Oh Soo pretends to be her older brother to get the money he needs to live.
In the process, the physical contact between Oh Soo and Oh Young are increasing. All the awkward physical contact between the siblings is making the viewers very uncomfortable. Even though they are not really related in the drama, Oh Young still believes that Oh Soo is her real brother. This is making viewers very uncomfortable.
In the 9th episode that was aired March 7, Oh Soo gives Oh Young a goodnight kiss. In the 8th episode that was aired March 6, Oh Soo hugs Oh Young from the back while she tries to bake him a cake. Then Oh Youn says, "This is how you kiss your brother, right?" and kisses Oh Soo on the cheek.
Also, in the 5th episode that was aired February 21, Oh Soo and Oh Young sleep on the same bed together overnight. Oh Young makes Oh Soo lie down on the bed with her and begins to touch him. She says, "I want to know you. Since I'm blind, I can't learn anything without touching. For the blind, touching is always innocent."
Regarding Oh Soo and Oh Young sleeping on the same bed, Secretary Wang (Bae Jong Ok) says, "Even if they are siblings, how can a man and a woman sleep in the same room together?"
This drama, "That Winter, The Wind Blows" is a remake of the Japanese story, "I Don't Need Love". In the past, a movie called, "I Don't Need Love" was produced in the past, featured by Moon Keun Young and Kim Joo Hyuk.
In both the Japanese original and the Korean movie "I Don't Need Love", there were almost no physical contact between the two main characters. Both works also do not contain a kiss scene. This drama doesn't necessarily have to follow the original work, but the unusual physical contact between the siblings is making a lot of viewers uncomfortable.
Viewers who feel uncomfortable after watching all the physical contact between Jo In Sung and Song Hye Kyo responded with comments like, "It's something I can't understand. No matter what the situation is, they are 'siblings'. Their physical contact seems too premature", "They even hug like lovers.. I just don't understand it" and "She's basically dating her older brother."
