[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Snowy Road" Episode 1

2015/02/28 | | Permalink

Jong-boon (played by Kim Hyang-ki) is a young girl who idolizes Yeong-ae (played by Kim Sae-ron). Yeong-ae's not only pretty, she even gets to go to school and earn very impressive marks. In the year 1944. Which means that Yeong-ae is an implicit collaborator in the Japanese regime. Not that this ends up doing her a whole lot of good. Soon both Jong-boon and Yeong-ae are conscripted into directly helping the war effort. Yes, this is going in exactly the direction you're thinking...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Jing Bi-rok" Episode 5

2015/02/28 | | Permalink

It's back to political vacillation as "Jing Bi-rok" spends most of the episode having officials engage in abstract arguments about the best possible foreign policy in the current situation. Interesting, most of the discussion actually revolves around what the Chinese are doing- even though the Chinese don't actually seem to present to discuss the problem.

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Villain and Widow"

2015/02/28 | | Permalink

Black comedy is a genre that requires an extremely delicate touch to succeed. It takes great skill to make dark topics funny and it takes even greater skill to make the characters in such stories likable. 'Villain and Widow' has its issues, mainly with its length, but it manages to not only be funny and feature some nice social commentary, but also be a work with characters that are just so easy to enjoy...More
