[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

Actor Kim San-ho [Chae Ki-won/10Asia]
My name is Kim San-ho. A syllable in my name is used for everyone else in my family but I think he just flipped the name of the hospital where I was born which was "Ho San Women's Clinic" I lived in Cheonan in the South Chungcheong Province from the day I was born on February 12, 1982 up until high school. I am the youngest of three brothers. My family is composed of my parents, my two brothers, my eldest brother's wife and their two children. I love kids so whenever I visit my hometown, I play with the two. They always ask me to take them to Baskin Robbins (laughs). I was a theater major at the Seoul Institute of the Arts when I enlisted for the army at the age of 21. I didn't think it was a big deal back then but after seeing one of my close friends enter the army at the age of 30, I'm relieved that I finished my term at an early age.,...More
