In last year's "Fatal", a sharp change in the action arises when a character asks, what about those criminals who redeem themselves? Their victims have to remain living in suffering trauma as a result of the damage done to them, yet a redeemed criminal can just go about their life as normal. It's obviously the Christian thing to do to forgive people for such actions- but how can a victim accept that in the moment, dealing with a perpetrator who, provided that he's not caught, will never atone, and laugh derisively at the idea that he should?...More
I kept wondering throughout "Tunnel 3D" whether this film was inspired by some sort of real life incident. It's not that the movie is realistic in any way, don't get me wrong. It's just that the characters keep going on about how they need to make the the tunnel a monument to remember something and I'm just thinking, remember what? Was there some major tunnel related accident in South Korea in recent years that I hadn't heard about?...More
Hye-sook (played by Shim Hye-jin) manages a fairly unremarkable restaurant in Seoul, and resists efforts to go back to her hometown of Andong for even the shortest stretch of time. Why? Well...there isn't a good reason really. You ever made one of those decisions in life that seemed like a smart idea at the time, but hasn't really seemed to pan out since then? But at the same time life isn't so terrible that you want to swallow your pride and admit you were wrong? That's where Hye-sook is...More
The first episode of "Fated to Love You" was fun, whimsical, and full of the zany Taiwanese drama style while still remaining true to Korean drama style. The characters were wacky, but endearing, and the plot moved quickly towards the event that sets of the main couple's journey.
From the get-go, "Fated to Love You" bolted out of the gates, giving us some over-the-top humor with male lead Lee Geon (Jang Hyeok) that was a milder version of the drawn out scenarios that Taiwanese dramas favor...More
Jae-yeol and Hae-soo have a natural dislike of each other, among countless other obstacles, and "It's Okay, That's Love" is doing everything it can to slowly whittle these hindrances down. First up is the inconvenient fact of how both Jae-yeol and Hae-soo currently have significant others. The drama wastes no time in destroying both these relationships quite spectacularly. I mean, wow, yeah they were in the way, but wasn't this a little harsh?...More
Episode 4 of "Temptation" was cyclical. It mirrored episode 3's events in reverse and sported more manipulation and betrayal. The small feelings that were planted have started to grow insidiously like weeds and are affecting decisions. It is a distinct lack of communication that is causing the breakdown of what once were solid relationships and promoting the growth of unhealthy ones.
Seok-hoon and Hong-joo are the main victims of a lack of communication...More
The illicit relationships that were formed in the first week of "Temptation" have now begun to develop at frightening speed. Each character has been hurt and is looking for the comfort and security that they can't find in their spouses, their family, or their work.
Se-young is the only main character of the four who is experiencing her first love...More
