[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Saimdang: Light's Diary" Episode 17

2017/03/22 | | Permalink

Director Yoon Sang-ho can throw all the pretty lighting and musical cues at Lee Gyum and Saimdang as he wants. But at the end of the day, a single look of genuine meaningful concern from Won-soo about Saimdang's safety has a lot more impact than anything Lee Gyum has done over the entire course of the drama. I really like Yoon Da-hoon. He's pretty much the only actor in "Saimdang: Light's Diary" who consistently comes off as believable and sympathetic, although it does help that his character is written somewhat realistically...More

Granted, they tend to go after people who probably deserve it. Even so, beating up people on the street who are rude little jerks seems a bit beneath the lofty visions of "Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People" and indeed, if we take the position that might makes right that uh, kind of validates the entire unjust system Gil-dong is supposed to be fighting against...More

The country has 6.44 million temporary workers. They have Nowhere to Turn to even if they get discharged overnight. The government released a system of elementary school sports instructors in 2008 but most schools only employ them for 11 months. This is part of a scheme to avoid paying pension which becomes true if the position is filled for 12 months.
