Things just turn a cinematic surreal turn with respect to upcoming romance movie The Third Way of Love, and it has nothing to do with the tabloid topping talk about the newly revealed real life dating relationship of the leads Song Seung Heon and Crystal Liu. Remember what I said about the teaser trailer giving me no clue what the movie is about or what to expect? Yeah, that’s not the case anymore with the full trailer that gives me a clue, and not in a good way.
C-netizens are abuzz with certain similarities in the relationship and interactions of the Third Way leads to the movie adaptation of the erotic S&M romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey. Song Seung Heon’s character is giving off pushy, controlling, and kinda stalker-ish behavior in wooing Crystal’s character, with even promised bed scenes to come but without the S&M kinky part. Words cannot adequately describe what a putrid piece of shit Fifty Shades is as a novel, and the male lead is beyond the pits as a human being, so all similarities here is way upsetting if Song Seung Heon’s character ends up even remotely like Christian Grey. Ugh.
