[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Kind Words" Episode 20 Final 2014/02/27, "Kind Words" has come to an end after fighting, loving, screaming and truck loads of tears. What makes it different from other melodramas was the deep character exploration that happened. The point wasn't to make everyone cry, it was to explore a difficult subject, adultery, and that it did very well. As a Western reviewer with a different cultural background, I can't say that I agree with how this show wrapped up, but I do understand it. Family is the key unit of Korean culture and to have the linchpin of that family unit, the married couple, torn asunder creates huge havoc,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Kind Words" Episode 18 2014/02/15,
As "Kind Words" nears its end, the journey becomes rickety. It feels like the production team is grasping at straws to extend the strife when it really doesn't need to. "Kind Words" is chock full of wonderful material, solid characters and tough situations to explore. This is where fighting for ratings really hurts a show. It starts working for the shock factor (higher ratings) rather than doing what would be organic on the parts of the characters and the plot progression. The insane emotional fluctuations this episode bumped "Kind Words" up a whole percentage point from 9.9% (20th place) to 10.9% (11th place) on the AGB Nielsen,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Kind Words" Episode 17 2014/02/10, "Kind Words" took its first step towards too many tears this episode. It's been good on monitoring the angst and the quivering lips - until now. Many emotional breakdowns were to be expected, but this episode was tears overload. Despite that, it still managed to be a very solid drama, which is impressive going into the second to last week. The first reason for all of the tears is that two characters, Eun-jin and Min-soo, sink into despair and wallow in huge pools of pity,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Kind Words" Episode 16 2014/02/05,
Almost all the nasty secrets have been aired and the angst is in full swing. What makes the angst, tears, yelling, and arguing bearable is the pace and the earnest reactions of the characters. There is plenty of blame to go around, but there is also understanding and compassion to temper the intensity of the hurt emotions. Han Groo led the episode in terms of raw passion. Her character, Eun-young, is forward and rudely earnest, which makes her pursual of the dirty truth even more difficult for her family, Min-soo's family, and for me to watch,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Kind Words" Episode 15 2014/02/02, "Kind Words" has divulged one of its biggest secrets and the fallout from it is massive, heartbreakingly massive. But that fallout happened in the most potent of ways that good television can deliver: the delayed delivery. To use words from my teenagerhood, "It hurts so good". Although this episode required impeccable timing and focused acting from everyone, Park Seo-joon as the anguished Song Min-soo was the standout,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Kind Words" Episode 10 2014/01/09,
The intense tears have begun and "Kind Words" manages to keep them relevant to the theme of the show without catering to dramatic effect. It's a surprising strength of the show because the material calls for pain and tears and could easily become overwrought. Instead, "Kind Words" thoughtfully and honestly explores human emotion, opinion and reaction.
Although "Kind Words" is strong for the most part, there are a few exposition vehicles that are a little cumbersome in the show, like Eun-jin and Mi-kyung's cooking teacher involving herself and providing commentary that foreshadows the next plot move,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Kind Words" Episode 8 2014/01/02,
The pacing in "Kind Words" is absolutely stellar. This episode saw two very important events that had been built up to, but that will also counter each other and produce misery. It was a brilliant play by the production team because the proceedings led seamlessly into the two big reveals. Those reveals and the potential agony and conflict they hold are fueling the forward motion of the drama,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Kind Words" Episode 3 2013/12/18, "Kind Words" could've taken the mystery and made it overly dramatic. That would've ruined the show. Instead, it forced people to open up and talk, and scream, and cry. When marriage and divorce are on the line, those things are necessary, and "Kind Words" knows that.
Episode 3 surprised me. Seong-soo and Eun-jin open up to each other and really communicate, something that is rarely seen in K-drama. Eun-jin and her mother have an honest-to-goodness fight that really hashes out differences and allow the women to work out their issues,...More
