[HanCinema's Film Review] "Sunshine" 2015/07/18,
Seol-ji (played by Dana) is a North Korean defector living in the South. Her days are filled with nothing all that remarkable. Seol-ji works in a flower shop with another defector, fulfilling the sometimes bizarre requests of people who order flowers. She also paints as a hobby- this being the profession of her old life in North Korea. Life isn't amazing- but it's not terrible either. Seol-ji has enough money to get by. Which is why she bristles at Sin-woong (played by Kang Eun-tak), an ambitious director who thinks Seol-ji has exactly the right story for a compelling television documentary,...More
[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Wicked" 2014/10/03,
Late in "The Wicked" there's a flashback where we see office manager Seon (played by Na Soo-yoon) decide to take a chance on applicant Se-yeong (played by Park Joo-hee-I).

[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Night of the Prophet" 2014/08/01,
Yeo-joo (played by Lee Mi-so) works at a call center offering up help to those who need it. On paper, she is extremely good at her job. In reality, though, it soon becomes clear that there's a darker element behind Yeo-joo's work that is less than noble. When her boss marvels at how Yeo-joo has been able to stay active for so long in a job with a high burnout rate, Yeo-joo knows that in part this is because she is somewhat lacking in the empathy department, owing to a traumatic childhood incident,...More
