Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Woori The Virgin, a Korean adaptation of Jane the Virgin, features stories that are also present in its U.S. sister series. There's lots of strong innuendo, some strong language, and it contains mature themes, including chastity, infidelity, divorce, and marrying for money. A person assaults a doctor after receiving bad news, but this is more goofy than violent.
Is It Any Good?
The K-drama version of Jane the Virgin, the U.S. series inspired by the Venezuelan hit Juana la Virgen, offers all the romantic comedy the franchise is known for. It succeeds at staying true to many of the plotlines present in the stateside version, and delivers some quirky and laughable moments. But Woori the Virgin pushes these stories through a single fourteen-episode season, which is much less than the roughly three years the U.S. version of the series origiunally aired. It isn't as sharply written as its stateside predecessor, either. All of this, combined with some expected cultural differences that are present in the narratives, can potentially make fans of the original shows hesitate to invest in it. Nonetheless, Woori the Virgin is amusing, and if you're looking for a bingeable series to enjoy, this one is worth checking out.
