[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Bubble Gum" Episode 6

2015/11/10 | | Permalink

Haeng-ah and Ri-hwan have a very odd dynamic as lovers. They never really feel like lovers at all- they feel like friends who are making a self-conscious effort to act like lovers. Which is not a bad thing. Friends will put up with behavior that would be intolerable in a lover. And Ri-hwan, rather than sulk grumpily, is genuinely pretty good at having a fun time. But all of this can't erase the fact that the only real difference between Haeng-ah and Ri-hwan as lovers compared to Haeng-ah and Ri-hwan as friends is that whole ominous look down the alley...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Six Flying Dragons" Episode 12

2015/11/10 | | Permalink

For all practical intents and purposes Bang-won has become a damsel-in-distress. In this way he indirectly manages to become the impetus for Do-jeon and Seong-gye to finally join forces, creating a rather mixed metaphor. Bang-won is only in this situation at all because of the poor choices that he made. And yet it's quite unclear if or when Do-jeon and Seong-gye would have started cooperating if they had not been united by this common goal...More

In-gyeom (played by Choi Jong-won) is the main antagonist of "Six Flying Dragons" for the foreseeable future. The pacing in this drama isn't as fast as I was expecting. Far from getting into the story of how Bang-won became the ruthless historical king of legend, "Six Flying Dragons" is still describing him mostly as kind of a dumb kid- a dumb kid who's only just now starting to realize how badly he screwed up...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Bubble Gum" Episode 5

Late in this episode, a conversation is had regarding whether a kiss with a longtime platonic friend necessarily means that two are or can potentially be a romantic item. One particularly amusing part of the response is simply, if there's no romantic attachment, why did the kiss happen in the first place? This is the main essential question with which we should look at last episode's cliffhanger and this episode's aftermath. Why did Ri-hwan kiss Haeng-ah?...More

Jang Jae-hyeon's "The Priests" clean up at the top...

Jang Jae-hyeon's debut feature film "The Priest" entered at the top of the pile by capturing a domineering 62% of the box office pie over the weekend. The local film made its debut last Thursday, and from the 1,088 screens it was allocated managed to attract over 1.4 million filmgoers. Formerly known as "Black Priests", the film has been lightly compared to the iconic "Exorcist" film, and, more locally, the film conjures up images of Park Chan-wook's bloodly vampire film "Thirst". In "The Priests", Kim Yoon-seok and Kang Dong-won play two Catholic priests who become involved in a disturbing mystery the can't forsake...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Riders: Get Tomorrow" Episode 1

2015/11/08 | | Permalink

Gi-joon (played by Kim Dong-wuk), Yoon-jae (played by Choi Min-I), and Joon-wook (played by Yoon Joong-hoon) are all pushing thirty but they stubbornly refuse to grow up. The three of them still take their bikes out to the river and check out all the foxy ladies. Because what else are they going to go do with their lives? The job market stinks, and the occasional fantasy is about the only thing keeping these guys sane. That, and their ability to vent to friends about the often absurd problems common in their employment situations...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Awl" Episode 6

2015/11/08 | | Permalink

It turns out that Go-sin is all right after all, and starts the episode off with another elucidating metaphorical speech on worker's rights. This time he posits that the modern workplace is in itself an attack on a person's humanity. It's an interesting concept actually. You don't have to go too far to find articles, especially South Korean articles, that discuss work-related depression. I've suffered from that myself in fact. There's little room in conformist systems for acknowledging individuality, even as some cultures laud that as a virtue...More
