Interesting But Predictable Stories
Eve maybe it was deliberately created to provoke the emotions of the audience throughout the 16 episodes they have because this drama has succeeded in making agitation with the story of revenge and infidelity.
However, those emotions are not well maintained considering the plot of the story Eve predictable.
This drama also does not provide significant surprises when little by little the secrets of the characters are revealed.
The series of attacks that Lee La El launched for revenge didn’t feel special either.
In addition to the predictable plot, other disturbing things from Eve is the background of Lee La El’s character which is told in bits and pieces. As a result, the audience does not feel too attached to this character.
On the other hand, the antagonist Han So Ra’s character actually gets a good storytelling. The reason this character grows up to be a fierce woman who justifies any means to get what she has is clearly illustrated.

The characters in Eve it doesn’t feel realistic. Some characters are described as too evil, while other characters are described as too good.
Perhaps this was intended to make the distinction between the criminal and the victim clear. However, some of the actions taken by the characters that are often beyond reason may be a bit disturbing for some viewers.
For Seo Ye Ji, playing Lee Ra El might not be her best performance. The dilemma that his character feels in this drama is too forced and actually makes him look weak.
Apart from Seo Ye Ji, Lee Sang Yeob’s presence in this drama also feels in vain. The character he plays doesn’t really affect the whole story and seems to be just a sweetener.
Meanwhile, Yoo Sun’s rival Seo Ye Ji in this drama actually looks stunning. The 1976-born actress appeared brutal as Han So Ra, who suffers from past trauma and is obsessed with having a happy family to the point where she justifies any means to get what she wants.
Han So Ra’s screams, anger, and tears were so emotional and managed to make the audience resent and feel sorry for this character.
