[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Snowy Road" Episode 1

2015/02/28 | | Permalink

Jong-boon (played by Kim Hyang-ki) is a young girl who idolizes Yeong-ae (played by Kim Sae-ron). Yeong-ae's not only pretty, she even gets to go to school and earn very impressive marks. In the year 1944. Which means that Yeong-ae is an implicit collaborator in the Japanese regime. Not that this ends up doing her a whole lot of good. Soon both Jong-boon and Yeong-ae are conscripted into directly helping the war effort. Yes, this is going in exactly the direction you're thinking...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Family Outing" Episode 15

2015/02/28 | | Permalink

The difference between this episode of "Family Outing" and every other episode that's dangled the threat of exposing Joon-hee's true identity is that this time the drama actually goes through with it. There's not even much of an intermediate period of hand-wringing. Joon-hee just goes, you know what, forget it. I'm sick of acting like this. I'm going to say my apologies and just leave. It's a much easier thing for her to do now that there's other things in life that Joon-hee can enjoy aside from the con...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Jing Bi-rok" Episode 5

2015/02/28 | | Permalink

It's back to political vacillation as "Jing Bi-rok" spends most of the episode having officials engage in abstract arguments about the best possible foreign policy in the current situation. Interesting, most of the discussion actually revolves around what the Chinese are doing- even though the Chinese don't actually seem to present to discuss the problem. That's kind of a bad sign- lots of mistakes have been made so far, and even that should be enough to establish that the Koreans can't move forward on their own...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Ordinary Days - 2014"

2015/02/28 | | Permalink

Director Kim Sang-seok here writes and produces a film about Sang-seok (also played by Kim Sang-seok) who dreams of untangling the mysteries of his personal life by writing and producing a film. I hope you like introspective irony, because if that sentence didn't clue you in, this is pretty much the whole raison d'être of "Ordinary Days - 2014". The movie even makes a specific point of trying to confuse us about which scenes feature Sang-seok the director and which ones feature Sang-seok the actual person...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Strong and Mini Special Forces: The Attack of a New Villain"

2015/02/28 | | Permalink

Have you spent your whole life wanting to see a cartoon that combines cute small things, cool armored heroes, transforming cars, and the plot structure of Super Sentai? If the answer to that question is yes, then you are probably a small child. Do your parents know you're reading my reviews? I write about some pretty messed up stuff. Oh sure Korean film seems like fun and games now but just wait till you get to the more serious work and people actually die when they get killed...More
