[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho" Episode 19

2016/05/30 | | Permalink

One of the strong suits of "Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho" is its handling of emotions and episode nineteen gives Deul-ho and us a rough time, as his life is endangered by evidence. It also reveals crucial information about the past and the true extent of Yeong-il's involvement in important events. Some revelations raise more questions, others neatly tie threads opened in the drama's beginning. Deul-ho repeats certain mistakes and we have miraculous interventions, but they do not majorly harm what is a thrilling episode...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Oh Hae-Young Again" Episode 9

2016/05/30 | | Permalink

While the other Hae-young has received a great deal of sympathetic characterization as of late, it's easy to lose sight of one important fact. The main Hae-young isn't aware of any of this. She hasn't been present for the scenes which explain the other Hae-young's personal issues. In many ways Hae-young is still a character in a completely different drama, the one several episodes back where the other Hae-young seemed like an obvious villain in spite of how unfailingly nice she acts in every possible circumstance...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Beautiful Gong Shim" Episode 6

"Beautiful Gong Shim"'s excellence rides on the quirkiness of Dan-tae's character, the depth of Namgoong Min's acting, and the refreshing Minah as Gong Shim. The surrounding elements are clunky, but pale in comparison to the main couple.

The show's strength is also its weakness...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Vampire Detective" Episode 10

2016/05/30 | | Permalink

I would not blame anyone for forgetting that "Vampire Detective" has a main plot, given we only see a few seconds of it in each episode, but it is finally here and so are some explanations about the past. Unfortunately, those explanations feel rushed, as do some important character decisions. Even though it is about eight episodes late, the backstory and character development we did not get for an entire series have been provided...More

[Interview] "The Handmaiden" Kim Min-hee, "How can I explain love in just a single moment?"

Source | 2016/05/30 | | Permalink

Kim Min-hee from "The Handmaiden" shows that the aura of an actress decides the quality of a movie. The 'charming and beautiful' and 'like no other in heaven' Hideko brightened up the screens. The homosexual bed scene and level of exposure in the beginning were no match for Kim Min-hee. She's proven that acting can be beautiful.

Kim Min-hee debuted as a magazine model and appeared in commercials and dramas like "School 2" but she was known more for her taste in fashion than acting. She starred in writer Noh Hee-kyeong's "Goodbye Solo" 10 years ago and finally earned herself some credit. Then she continued to star in movies "Hellcats", "Actresses", "Helpless" and more. In "Helpless" Kim Min-hee put on the face of a woman about whom everything was a lie...More
