Samsung Drops Out of Top 5 in Chinese Smartphone Market

Source | 2016/02/07 | | Permalink

Samsung dropped out of the Top 5 in the Chinese smartphone market last year as local rivals soared ahead.

According to market researcher Strategy Analytics, Huawei ranked top in the fourth quarter last year with a 15.2 percent market share. Second was Xiaomi (14.8 percent), followed by Apple (13.1 percent), Vivo (10 percent) and Oppo (9.2 percent)...More

Veteran Court Interpreter Kept Busy by Foreign Crime

Source | 2016/02/07 | | Permalink

When Joo Mi-hye was offered a job as a court interpreter during the infamous Itaewon murder trial in 1997, she turned it down. The crime, in which two young men with American backgrounds were accused of stabbing a Korean college student in a fast-food joint, seemed simply too grisly.

But in the retrial that started last October, Joo (60) felt sufficiently weathered to accept the job...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Madame Antoine" Episode 6

2016/02/06 | | Permalink

Yoo-rim (played by Hwang Seung-eon) is Hye-rim's younger sister and I'm spotlighting her this time because she's the main character who tries to do something different this episode by being sneaky like a normal person instead of a psychic / psychological genius.

Personally I suspect someone put pressure on the production team to work more kisses into the story somehow...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Jang Yeong-sil - Drama" Episode 11

2016/02/06 | | Permalink

After a large scale and mostly unnecessary swordfight the Chinese portion of "Jang Yeong-sil - Drama" concludes, as usual leaving me asking the wrong kind of questions. Is anybody else noticing the irony here? Song Il-gook is in an action-heavy drama, as a guy who logically does not know how to fight and spends most his time in the action sequences chronically dodging hits? When even the token woman picks up a sword and starts hacking away I have to wonder whether "Jang Yeong-sil - Drama" would make more sense if it just ignored logic entirely and made Yeong-sil a kung fu scientist. For all we know, he might have been one...More

[HanCinema's Drama First Look] "Signal"

2016/02/06 | | Permalink

Crime shows are no longer something new in Korean drama, but they still largely follow a formulaic approach, such as any other genre. Placing style over substance is a common issue and especially some of the episodic dramas of the type seem repetitive. It is therefore fortunate that tvN's "Signal" not only seems to have a strong main plot, but that it is off to a great start with its two main features...More
