[HanCinema's Digest] Photography and Art

2017/02/12 | | Permalink

A South Korean artist pokes fun at the country's hectic office culture through a satirical cartoon series, get to know Korea's booming coffee culture through 'latte art', Pyeongchang holds art biennale ahead of the 2018 Winter Games, and catch a glimpse of what a holiday in the 'hermit kingdom' looks likes...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim"

2017/02/11 | | Permalink

"Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim" might sound like another round of hospital romance, but the deceptively titled series is a bit quirkier than you would expect. A human drama at its core, the story looks at the humanity in medicine and the ethical implications of it as a business. At the same time, the drama has trouble living up to that original potential, so let us look at it in more detail...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "The King"

2017/02/11 | | Permalink

So you know that scene where the hero is about to start cleansing the world of evil, then the villain pops up and offers vast power for him to instead assist the forces of evil in ruling the universe? In "The King", that hero is low-born prosecutor Tae-soo (played by Jo In-Seong). That villain is high-ranking special prosecutor Kang-sik (played by Jo In-Seong). The scene happens early on, the twist being that Tae-soo accepts the offer, then proceeds to spend the rest of the movie as a largely passive observer...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Garak Market Revolution"

2017/02/11 | | Permalink

Doo-soo (played by Jung Du-won) is a college graduate who made the strategic decision to work as a teamster at the Garak market in southeast Seoul. The reasoning being, that teamsters get money right now. And being in office interview purgatory is, well, not a good time. While Doo-soo does not have an especially favorable contract, he unexpectedly gains an opportunity to better his position in life through his expertise in the game of Korean chess...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Don't Worry"

2017/02/11 | | Permalink

In the first episode of "Don't Worry" wild child Hyeon-joon (played by Lee Si-hoo), desperate to resolve a bad situation, enlists the aid of taxi driver Choon-gil (played by Jeong Ji-soon) to chase down his tormentor. Alas, this was a poor move on Hyeon-joon's part, as Choon-gil is a bit of an idiot. And that includes when it comes to romance, as Choon-gil fantasizes about the young, vibrant Hyeon-joon. This gets to be especially inappropriate as Hyeon-joon grows increasingly agitated with Choon-gil throughout the night. Lucky thing they're both gay...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Missing 9" Episode 8

2017/02/10 | | Permalink

At the rate Tae-ho plans murders it is quite fortunate that "Missing 9" should more realistically be called "Missing Many". The deadly star has some strong media play abilities and he is determined to get Bong-hee. One more survivor returns, but they are not exactly helpful. With the investigative committee still clutching at its new narrative, Bong-hee is left with only her fierce determination and Tae-yeong as her weapons...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Hwarang" Episode 16

2017/02/10 | | Permalink

A turning point has come after a long episode of brooding, low spirits, and contemplation. The hwarang each must decide their own fates and whether or not they will walk the paths expected of them or forge their own. Ji-dwi has an especially hard time coming to terms with the throne with the brave actions of Seon-woo highlighting his low self-esteem and feelings of incompetence....More
