[HanCinema's Drama Review] "The Girl Who Sees Smells" Episode 11

2015/05/06 | | Permalink

The cliffhanger last time and the cliffhanger this time are for the most part the exact same cliffhanger. "The Girl Who Sees Smells" is having difficulty justifying its running time at this point. Even under the most charitable interpretation by all rights Jae-hee really should have been caught by now. Moo-gak actually manages to catch Jae-hee committing an explicit crime- at the very least there should be probable cause for a warrant. And a cursory investigation of Jae-hee's cellar would quickly reveal the existence of the books, and then it's game over...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Who Are You - School 2015" Episode 4

2015/05/05 | | Permalink

This episode mostly takes a shift toward premise building. Something of an odd narrative direction given that this is the fourth episode, but "Who Are You - School 2015" makes good use of it. Once Eun-bi figures out what has happened, all that's left for her and Mi-kyeong to do is admit that there isn't actually going to be a happy resolution after all. Now they have to return to their real, mostly heartbroken lives...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Let's Eat - Season 2" Episode 10

2015/05/05 | | Permalink

The humor this episode consists primarily of callbacks- namely to the entire incident with the bike. The extent to which the characters are willing to tell ridiculous lies for reasons that don't really make much sense is the larger thematic point. Sure it's fun to watch everybody squirm in the near term. But in the long term, why are they lying exactly? What exactly is the end game for a bunch of relationships that are founded upon the idea of silly deceit?...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Who Are You - School 2015" Episode 3

2015/05/04 | | Permalink

It turns out that there is bullying at Eun-byeol's school- but it's so subtle that even after watching this episode I'm not sure to what extent it technically exists. The story of Yeong-eun (played by Kim Bo-ra) is very instructive in this regard. As it turns out she was the recipient not so much of the explicit bullying that Eun-bi suffered from, but of the rather more crippling loneliness of simply being ignored altogether...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Let's Eat - Season 2" Episode 9

2015/05/04 | | Permalink

In a mildly genre-bending twist, last episode revealed that Soo-ji's goal of a relationship with Sang-woo was actually much easier to accomplish then was expected. So...what exactly are the characters supposed to do for the remaining ten episodes? It soon becomes clear that from this point on, rather than being about Soo-ji being terrible at romance, we're now going to get a story about Soo-ji and Sang-woo being mutually terrible at romance...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Heard It Through the Grapevine" Episode 11

2015/05/04 | | Permalink

Episode 11 was strong than those of the past because something actually happened. And by "something", I mean that Jung-ho and Yeon-hee didn't just sit around plotting to take over the futures of In-sang and Beom. They set their plans into motion and the hired help quietly fights their corruption behind the scenes. Things happened!

The major theme of the episode was class and how it divides In-sang's family from Beom's...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Unkind Women" Episode 11

2015/05/04 | | Permalink

This was the strongest episode by far. For all the annoying interconnections between people that can be a weakness, this show timed its reveals so well that those interconnections ended up becoming strengths. Along with the reveals came many insights into a rich past that brought viewers closer to the characters on screen

Perhaps the strongest story was that of Hyeon-jeong's...More
