[HanCinema's Drama Preview] "Lookout"

2017/05/20 | | Permalink

Revenge stemming from the sense of injustice is not a new concept in Korean drama, but where there is usually one hero fighting for their personal cause, "Lookout" inserts a cast of characters working together for the justice they have all been denied. The cast off characters offers variety and the potential for a gripping story.


"Lookout" tells the story of people whose lives have been touched by crime and the lack of justice. Detective Jo Soo-ji (Lee Si-young), who tragically loses her daughter leads the team of vigilantes as they attempt to make justice in a world where corruption and dirty interests dictate who matters in the eyes of the law...More

[HanCinema's Drama Preview] "Circle"

2017/05/20 | | Permalink

Aliens that do not come to Earth ready for romance with their reincarnated love from the Joseon dynasty have just not been a thing in Korean drama. Science fiction as a genre is a very rare one even in Korean cinema. Yet perhaps Dramaland is ready to tackle it as more than romance garnish for a change. Enter "Circle".


A mysterious disappearance and the arrival of extraterrestrial life in 2017, a mysterious murder in 2037. The story of "Circle" takes place in two timelines and it deals with a world experiencing its first alien contact and evolving through it. The citizens of the future attempt to end violence by controlling human emotion with its technology...More

[Funcurve Review] "Night Light"

2017/05/20 | | Permalink

Fizzle Out

"Night Light" is a melodrama that attempts to shows us how people, when desperate, can change both their values and goals. Our heroines come from two entirely different backgrounds, yet share the same ambitions driven by different motivations. Lee Se-jin (UEE) works two part-time jobs to make ends meet and eager to turn her life around. While her polar opposite, Seo I-kyeong (Lee Yo-won), is rich and powerful, filled with endless greed. The two leading ladies begin to work together and we quickly see why it's never a good idea to mix personal life with business and the consequence when you do...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Tooth and the Nail"

2017/05/20 | | Permalink

Tae-seok (played by Park Sung-woong) is a prosecutor working in South Korea in the late nineteen-forties. He is prosecuting a case where someone killed someone at the Seokjo Estate. "The Tooth and the Nail" gets off on the wrong foot almost immediately with possibly the most unnecessary framing device I've ever seen. Why not just start the story off chronologically, with traveling magician Seok-jin (played by Ko Soo) getting sucked into an elaborate conspiracy with classy international man Do-jin (played by Kim Joo-hyeok) at the center?...More
