[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Mirror of the Witch" Episode 6

2016/05/28 | | Permalink

Soon-deuk-i (played by Dohee) is, for this episode anyway, the main character of "Mirror of the Witch". She's a schemer who, in between schemes, is friend to gisaeng Man-weol (played by Lee Cho-hee), who is being stymied in her romantic efforts by a disfigured face. You might be wondering what any of this has to do with Jun's revenge plan, Yeon-hee's seclusion, Hong-joo's dark magic, or King Seonjo's physical malady. There are relating plot threads.

2016/05/28 | | Permalink

If you are feeling empty on the romantic comedy front, look no further, as "Beautiful Gong Shim" is here to provide all the things we love about them. Of course this means it includes a lot of the things that are problematic for less tolerant of certain frustrating cliches viewers, but this is not breaking news when it comes to dramas or romantic comedy.

Due to a poorly written plot, inadequate special effects, and subpar acting, the drama failed to get a passing grade in my books...More

2016/05/28 | | Permalink

Gye-choon (played by Yoon Yeo-jeong) is an old woman living on Jeju Island. She's had the misfortune of outliving her husband and her son, but finds joy in life through a surviving granddaughter. The opening scenes of "Canola" depict these circumstances, as Gye-choon is able to live in comfort and love by virtue of having someone to care for. That is, until malicious destiny steps in once again. Flash forward twelve years. Hye-ji (played by Kim Go-eun-I) is living the runaway life, through circumstances which don't become completely clear until the movie's close. All that Gye-choon knows is that Hye-ji has all the markers of the girl who disappeared twelve years ago, and can describe the world she loved and left behind. Even as Hye-ji's own attitude is curiously unemotional, Gye-choon is simply overjoyed to see her grandda...More
