2017/07/22 | | Permalink

Dramaland is back to firing on all cylinders as new dramas are being announced and upcoming ones ramp up their promotional efforts. This week I take a little look at the surprisingly funny "Live Up to Your Name", I share my Ori-feels over "Mystery Queen 2" and also a few thoughts on my upcoming dramas.

[HanCinema's Drama Preview] "Falsify"

2017/07/22 | | Permalink

The time has come to once again tap into our unlimited reserves of hate for the corrupt rich as "Falsify" brings more revenge on the Korean drama table. This time around the struggle involves the world of journalism; a welcome twist to the usual business- and law-related takes. Let me guide you through my current thoughts.

Premise

Han Moo-yeong (Namgoong Min) is a reporter who uses his own methods in order to reveal the truth about the death of a loved one. When the law no longer supports justice and the press hides the truth, the only measures that work exist outside of the norm...More

2017/07/22 | | Permalink

Seok-i (played by Kang Pil-suk) is a Chinese man who used to live in South Korea, where he married Eun-im (played by Kim Sae-byeok). He briefly returns to find out what happened to her after receiving a mysterious letter. Seok-i has to ask old friends to get any clue of what happened to Eun-im, and progress is limited.

2017/07/22 | | Permalink

Following Chun Doo-hwan's ascent to power, brutality by government forces was common in order to assure that no one challenged the new political order. In Gwangju, on May 18th, 1980, this brutality reached a tipping point. Attacks against people who weren't even related to ongoing political protests enraged enough common citizens that they took to the streets and defied the government with show of force. "No Name Stars" is the story of those people- what they were doing then, and what they are doing today...More

[Guest Film Review] "The Senior Class" screening at Fantasia International Film Festival

2017/07/22 | | Permalink

What I like the most about Korean animation, especially regarding the comparison with Japanese anime, is that the films are addressed to adults, for their most part, and not to children or teenagers, as is the case with the majority of anime. In that fashion, "Seoul Station", "King of Pigs", "The Fake" and this particular one (all of which have the same script writer, Yeon Sang-ho, who also directed "Train to Busan")  include some deep and harsh social comments, sex and adult themes in general, and a realism that is rarely seen in their Japanese counterparts...More
