"Mad Max" retains pole position...

The fourth film in the "Mad Max" series continued its reign atop the Korean box office, claiming additional 310K (31%) across 714 screens to move its total tally now to 1.8M ($15M). "Mad Max: Fury Road" has been peppered with praise from critics and filmgoers worldwide, and is quickly closing in on the estimated $150M it took to produce. Last weekend "Mad Max" (along with Spy) entered and dislodged Marvel's "Avengers" as the country's favourite flick; week two for George Miller's dusty dystopia saw that success continue as fans flocked to theatres to catch Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in action...More

As expected, the Korean and Chinese military forces continue to butt heads over the question of proper military sovereignty. Mostly they don't actually get along that poorly except when they have mutually conflicting cross-purposes. There's not really any way to resolve the question of whether or not to execute a presumed traitor when there's just too much inherent dispute over whether or not the person in question really is a question. Of course, some form of trial would probably be more appropriate than just letting the highest ranked person around solve the problem...More

Kyeong-cheol has many flaws, but the worst of them has to be that the guy's just not that smart. Last cliffhanger he "discovered" that Deok-in was having an affair with Jin-woo. A more farsighted person might have realized that Deok-in finding a boyfriend is a good thing. It makes Deok-in less likely to try to cling to the marriage. Which, consequently, would make it easier for Kyeong-cheol to get a divorce and finally marry Jin-hee. So how does Kyeong-cheol use this information?...More
