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
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.

For all we know, he might have been one...More
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
