[HanCinema's Film Review] "4th Place" 2016/05/21,
Teenage swimmer Gwang-soo (played by Jung Ga-ram) lives in a black-and-white world where talent is all that matters when it comes to getting a spot at the 1998 Asian Games in Bangkok. He is not knocked out of these illusions by any singular tragedy. Rather, people just get sick of dealing with Gwang-soo's nonsense.

The factor which ultimately persuades Gwang-soo to take on young charge Joon-ho (played by Yoo Jae-sang) as a protégé? Metaphorical self-flaggelation,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Drama Special - Red Moon" 2015/08/07,

The play has drawn much attention not only because it is directed by filmmaker Heo Jin-ho but also because of its cast; veteran actors Lee Yeong-ha, Kim Chang-wan and Oh Kwang-rok will play the lead role of Hahn Young-jin while Super Junior member Kim Ki-beom has been cast to portray the boy version of Young-jin.,...More
