[HanCinema's Film Review] "Mapado 2" + DVD Giveaway 2016/12/03,
Choong-soo (played by Lee Moon-sik), always on the lookout for a big pay-off, takes on a job to locate the first love of the dying Chairman Park (played by Joo Hyun). As it happens, this mystery woman is located in the same general area as the foul-mouthed grannies from the first "Mapado" movie. And so "Mapado 2" begins, less with a promise of actually getting to the story and more rehashing the same jokes which made the first "Mapado" such a fan favorite,...More
Ji Jin-hee's secret to acting? Understanding loneliness 2015/10/22, Source,

He stars in the SBS weekend drama "I Have A Lover" as Choi Jin-eon. We met with him recently and asked if he felt how popular he was, he laughed and said, "I hear there are many people who download our drama in high quality".

Many wives claim they want to fall back in love with their husbands,...More

The story of the affair of a brother-in-law and sister-in-law.
This is the story of Shakespeare's "Hamlet" which might seem like a makjang story. The Greek story of Oedipus who kills his father and marries his mother, is also another good example of a makjang drama in the year 2015.
What's the standard of telling a makjang drama from one that's not? There's no answer to that as the boundary is vague like the proposition of 'art and indecency'. It all comes down to being subjective, but in the sign-less reality, makjang stories end up being outrageous, sometimes irrational, and even ridiculous to keep the viewer hooked,...More
