[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Doctor Frost"

2015/03/28 | | Permalink

All kinds of characters have faced crime in OCN series. From coroners to simple detectives and from vampire prosecutors to superheroes. "Doctor Frost" takes a slightly different approach and looks at the individuals, rather than the crime itself alone. While less exciting than similar shows in terms of suspense and lacking a strong gimmick, it offers that unique exploration of crime through a different lens.

2015/03/28 | | Permalink

The Goyang Wonders were an independent baseball team that operated in Korea from 2011 to 2014.

Ji-soo (played by Uhm Jung-hwa) is an assertive ambitious woman who has recently come to accept the fact that she'll never be a world-renowned pianist. It's not her fault- Ji-soo has the talent, but inevitably her working class family ran out of the funds necessary to support this dream. So now Ji-soo has to accept a substitute fantasy- to simply be the piano teacher of a child who will later become a world-renowned pianist.
