[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Scholar Who Walks the Night" Episode 6

2015/07/23 | | Permalink

Gwi very quickly seems to forget that the reason he captured all the booksellers wasn't to spread a message of anti-literacy- Gwi's goal was in fact to get more information about Yang-seon. And he quickly gives that up to just do more obviously evil stuff that serves little apparent purpose except to force cover-ups and make people like Gwi even less than they already do. By the end of the episode Gwi isn't doing much better. He's once again easily bamboozled by Seong-yeol and manages to forget to take precautions against his most glaring weakness...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Scholar Who Walks the Night" Episode 5

2015/07/22 | | Permalink

Seong-ryeol does a lot of watching. Really, it seems to be his main special ability. He always has a perfect view of whatever scheme Gwi is planning at any given moment- that much would seem to be Gwi's special weakness. But for the most part Seong-ryeol has his eyes focused on Yang-seon this episode. It really does seem like a pity that Seong-ryeol has the power to read really fast but mostly just ends up waiting for people to finish doing stuff rather slowly...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Remember You" Episode 10

2015/07/21 | | Permalink

One of the reasons why "Remember You" takes an unpredictable amount of time to get through any given case is because the difficulty the detectives have solving any given case is directly proportional to how difficult the case is. That sentence probably seemed kind of long-winded and repetitive- but for formatted drama television this is genuinely a really unusual concept. And in "Remember You", it completely messes around with any sort of expectations we can have for any given episode...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Remember You" Episode 9

2015/07/20 | | Permalink

The last case was apparently resolved just as quickly as it looked. This is another one of the more uneven qualities of "Remember You"- it really is impossible to tell how long any given investigation is going to last. Right away we're given more hints as to another incoming crime, and sure enough, it isn't too long before the situation heats up until we get to a cliffhanger that just gives off a portent of disaster...More

[HanCinema's Box Office Review]

2015/07/20 | | Permalink

Last week Disney and Pixar's "Inside Out" entered the fray to settle in second with 21% of the box office pie; this weekend, however, saw the popular animation clinch the top spot by outperforming Kim Hak-soon's "Northern Limit Line" by almost most doubling its efforts. "Inside Out" claimed 939 thousand admissions over 931 screens (35%) to top the chart over the weekend, bumping Kim's war drama down a place with its 530 thousand admissions (19%). Worldwide, "Inside Out" has been extremely well-received having now banked over $490 million...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Jing Bi-rok" Episode 46

2015/07/19 | | Permalink

The story in "Jing Bi-rok" is quickly catching up with the more well-known parts of history. King Seonjo hasn't quite completely destroyed the backbone of the Korean military just yet, but he's working on it. It's sad watching Seong-ryong do his best to try and move the political edge of the story back into coherent sensible territory, knowing that he's doomed to fail. In this way King Seonjo is something of a tragic figure, too heavily mired in his own paranoia to realize that the purges have gone too far and are only making Korea more vulnerable...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Make a Woman Cry" Episode 28

2015/07/19 | | Permalink

I really don't think we need any more exposition on how Eun-soo is a genuinely terrible person. "Make a Woman Cry" is overdoing it at this point. It's not just making her look evil but also kind of socially retarded. Deok-in didn't accept the proposal from Tae-hwan when he was acting nice about it, so why in the world would she accept it from Eun-soo in full-on bitch mode? Eun-soo's back-up plan is equally terrible, and predictably falls apart completely by the end of the episode...More
