It Wasn’t A Sequel To Begin With

My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

Movie Review: The Naked Kitchen

Submitted by on July 29, 2009 – 14:57No Comment

“If there is one thing that The Naked Kitchen tells me, it’s that the human body is controlled by lust.”

The story begins with Mo-rae and Sang-in celebrating their first wedding anniversary. While Mo-rae is looking for a gift to surprise her hubby, she bumps into a stranger at the gallery and unexpectedly have sex with him (which to me seems like a forced scheme to begin conflict between the two main characters considering Mo-rae is totally in love with her husband). Mo-rae returns home with a guilty heart but it only gets worst as the visitor that Sang-in has invited to stay for the time being is none other than the stranger whom she has just had sex with. Thus, begins the twisted love story of two men and a woman.

I can’t help but feel that the entire story is forcefully written. Each mini plot that links the story together does not blend properly resulting in a jerky storyline. For example, why would a faithfully in love Mo-rae have sex with a stranger all of a sudden? Why would Sang-in suddenly quit his job to start a new business of his own? Why would a young man flirt and tease his best friend’s wife, especially when she is so much older than he is? And most puzzling of all, why is it that Mo-rae has never come across any other boys or guys in her entire life but Sang-in? Don’t they have other boys in the neighbourhood in which she grew up in?

Strange, absolutely strange. Everything seems so forcefully put together, it’s such a distraction to the minds of those who are trying to put the entire puzzle together to see the big picture. The Naked Kitchen is not a memorable movie which you will remember the next day. So if you are looking for something impactful that your heart can tune into, go watch another movie. But if you are interested in stringing pieces of mini plots together, this may just do the trick.
