[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Strong Family" Episodes 3-4

2017/02/27 | | Permalink

The direction in "Strong Family" is fairly unusual for a situation comedy. Observe how the camerawork is always in close quarters. We're always getting a clear look a the expressions of the various characters, yet never a clear overall glance of the rooms that they're in. The lack of emphasis on set design is odd considering the production team keeps reminding us that there's a fourth wall- by having characters talk directly at us...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People" Episode 9

2017/02/27 | | Permalink

At long last "Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People" has dispensed with the tragic backstory and gotten back to what made this drama interesting in the first place- the prospect of elaborate schemes. Now that Gil-dong finally has a good idea of what he wants to, the first step is to use his mighty strength to gain the full respect and command of Amogae's various friends.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Strong Woman Do Bong-soon" Episode 2

2017/02/26 | | Permalink

"Strong Woman Do Bong-soon" hurries past the introductory material and jumps straight into the dark deeds that throw the three main leads together. Min-hyeok is elucidated and is much more than his materialistic exterior. The same is true for Gook-doo who isn't all steely work ethic. We will certainly learn more as the violent murder mystery unfolds....More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Strong Woman Do Bong-soon" Episode 1

2017/02/26 | | Permalink

"Strong Woman Do Bong-soon" is off to an adorable start. Chemistry between Hyung-sik as Ahn Min-hyeok and Park Bo-young as the titular Do Bong-soon is strong even if the story outline is pretty commonplace. The look of the drama is like a shoujo manga come to life complete with adorable female lead with a superpower, a smiling chaebol, and a brooding cop (In Gook-doo played by Ji Soo.)...More
