Joon-hee has progressed to doing the right thing for the wrong reasons. I guess it's an improvement over what she was doing before, but the whole issue regarding her potentially being exposed by Dong-seok really does outline the inherent silliness of the story. Dong-seok is easily dissuaded from believing Joon-hee's motives are sinister because it remains really hard for him to guess what her angle could possibly be. Joon-hee's actual dream of being a fashion designer is simply much more believable and workable than whatever it is she's trying to do subversively...More
'Hyde, Jekyll and I' is the latest series in the recent mental illness trend. While it opened with some potential for a clearer focus and character exploration, it sadly soon found itself struggling with slow pacing, lacking plot progression and characterization and an overall underwhelming presentation. If this is just a slow burn, it might turn out for the best, but it has not delivered in terms of initial excitement...More

Why do modern countries employ and outfit SWAT teams? The expense of the equipment is quite high, considering its quite rare for anyone to actually need a SWAT team. There's two explanations I can think of. First, to minimize the prospect of casualties in situations where the criminal suspects are armed. The second, to show those sickos who's boss. "Two Doors" is a documentary detailing the 2009 Yongsan tragedy- where the stated goal was the first, yet the results ended up turning in to the second...More
Director Lee Chang-jae was refused entry to Baekhungam Temple several times before the nuns there finally agreed to let her film "On the Road". This refusal probably had less to do with religious reasons or even privacy so much as they weren't even sure what Lee Chang-jae wanted. The lives of Buddhist nuns aren't terribly interesting. The exams are about as exciting as temple life gets, and even those aren't that much different than anyone else's exams anywhere else...More
Choi Dong-hoon's "JEON WOO CHI: The Taoist Wizard" @ 24fps...
There are so many films flashing furiously past our eyes nowadays that it's hard to remember some of the devilish details, moments, and ideas from our favourite features. Add to that all the music videos, T.V. series, news broadcasts, digital advertisements, YouTube playlists and gaming, and it might well start to feel like there's an insurmountable backlog of compelling content, and you'd be right (sooner or later). Our lifetime is slowly being replaced by digital dream streams that if we were to watch all the classics, the critically acclaimed, personal recommendations and cultural must-sees, our lives would no longer have a convincing anchor in reality, and screen-time would be our only time...More

So, the dark secrets regarding Se-chan and his separated twin brother are...not really explained that well actually. Well, sometimes people get babies confused. It happens. I mean let's be honest most babies look identical anyway. Actually I find myself wondering about their father...no, never mind. I don't want to know. If he's not in the picture that means he'll probably re-enter the story in a comically melodramatic way and "Sing Again, Hera Gu" is already constantly trying my patience with exaggerated tragedy...More
