2016/07/23 | | Permalink

Today I talk about the always sad, always frustrating episode cutting and its latest victim, "Beautiful Mind". Ha Seok-jin is a busy man and he has two upcoming romantic dramas, so I share some media from those. Those looking for some romantic works between 35+ folks of similar age have three new dramas arriving soon which might interest them. Miscellaneous news are here, as usual and while I have been too busy to keep up with my own dramas, I can guarantee you it is because we have good things coming up at HanCinema...More

2016/07/23 | | Permalink

"The Good Wife" smacks us with a big twist in episode five, which changes a great deal about what we have known so far. It personally worries me in regards to the future, but perhaps it will be a good thing. The legal case this time involves Hye-kyeong's past social circle and with Tae-joon home, it just brings more sad memories to the surface. Meanwhile, Joong-won steps up his game and faces Tae-joon...More

One of the films that established the progress of the contemporary S. Korean cinema, "Peppermint Candy" was one of the most commercially successful films of 2000, and screened in many festivals around the world, winning a plethora of awards both locally and internationally.

The story actually starts with Yong-ho's suicide, and then moves, in segments, backwards in time, in order to present the reasons that led him to this extreme act...More
