[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Make a Woman Cry" Episode 39

2015/08/29 | | Permalink

In the final stretch of "Make a Woman Cry", writer Ha Cheong-ok has decided to pretend like Eun-soo hasn't been the entire focus of the drama for about as long as I can remember. The cliffhanger is resolved just a tad too easily and with a tad too mcuh easy forgiveness. Then practically out of nowhere Deok-in and Jin-woo start acting like the main characters again, having extended heartfelt conversations about loss, forgiveness, and being able to move on with life...More

[HanCinema's Actor Spotlight] Lee Yong-nyeo

2015/08/29 | | Permalink

It is a fact that entertainment is not kind to women past a certain age. In film and television specifically, while being an older man still lands one opportunities, older women are given limited options. Ageism in entertainment is nothing new and most actresses adapt and manage with what is available. They portray mothers, grandmothers and other such roles. Lee Yong-nyeo, however, is someone who has found a unique place in these industries...More

[Funcurve Review] "Who Are You - School 2015"

Mirror Mystery

There's an old saying of "don't judge a book by its cover", which most definitely applies to 'Who Are You - School 2015'. Upon hearing its title and cast alone, I deemed it as just another teen Korean drama with shallow love stories and mediocre acting at best. But boy was I wrong. 'Who Are You - School 2015' proves that it deserves its popularity with an exceptional blend of gripping mystery and adorable high school romance. Not to mention the phenomenal acting performances from lead actress Kim So-hyeon-I, who plays twin characters Lee Eun-bi and Go Eun-byeol, and rookie actress Jo Soo-hyang, who plays main antagonist Kang So-yeong. I'm thoroughly impressed with how the young actresses convincingly channel their character's divergent personas, making them that much more unforgettable...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Mission, Steal the Top Star"

2015/08/29 | | Permalink

Yoon Bin (played by Oh Chang-seok) is a top star. He's kind of a jerk and an idiot, but not excessively so. Yeong-sook (played by Yoon Ah-min) is the woman who kidnaps him. She's kind of mean and has a bad attitude, but not excessively so. Soo-jin (played by Kim Joo-ri) is a reporter. She's alternately aggressive and demure, but not excessively so. That's "Mission, Steal the Top Star" on a base level. It's a movie about characters who have personalities, but not excessive ones...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Alice in Earnestland"

2015/08/29 | | Permalink

The rather arresting poster for "Alice In Earnestland" features lead character Soo-nam (played by Lee Jeong-hyeon) wearing a classic Alice-style pinafore holding a mop with the yarns coated in red while smiling in the midst of an ominous looking flower patch. Neither the pinafore, nor the mop, nor the flowers make any on-screen appearance comparable to the aplomb we see on the theatrical poster. This is a bit of a disappointment- the image suggests a film of intriguing weirdness. Whereas in actuality "Alice In Earnestland" is just a film of confusing weirdness...More
