[HanCinema's Drama Preview] "Mystery Queen" 2017/04/02,
The concept of the "ajumma", the older married woman has had a rough times. While often a stereotype to be ridiculed and kept within traditional confines, it has begun taking more progressive forms as Korean drama evolves. In this case, our "Mystery Queen" will cook dinner, then arrest your sorry hide.
Yoo Seol-ok (Choi Kang-hee) is a woman who married early and had to give up on her dream of becoming a detective. Ha Won-seung (Kwon Sang-woo) is a detective who thinks with his fists. When Seol-ok becomes involved in a case, she gets another chance at her dream. The two characters do not get along, but they have to work together,...More
[HanCinema's Film Review] "Misbehavior" 2017/02/18,
Hyo-joo (played by Kim Ha-neul) is a smart, in-charge woman who has...nothing. Really. Hyo-joo is only just barely on the tenure track at the high school where she teaches chemistry. She also has a terrible boyfriend, Sang-woo (played by Lee Hee-joon), who appears to have wandered in from a Hong Sang-soo film. Adding insult to injury, Hyo-joo is forced to compete with Hye-yeong (played by Yoo In-young), a pretty, friendly, sweet, professionally incompetent woman with disproportionately cool boyfriend Jong-chan (played by Lee Ki-woo). And that's before teenage dance prodigy Jae-ha (played by Lee Won-geun) gets involved,...More
[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Net" 2016/10/08,
In rural North Korea Cheol-woo (played by Ryoo Seung-beom) is a fairly unremarkable fisherman who lives with his wife and daughter. Cheol-woo has to cross a checkpoint every day to go to work because he lives perilously close to the Demilitarized Zone. Far from having especially tight security, the North Korean border fence is actually fairly ramshackle, and because Cheol-woo knows the guards personally, they are hesitant to follow strict policy when an accident forces Cheol-woo's boat adrift. And there starts Cheol-woo's unfortunate journey to South Korea's modernland,...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "The Good Wife" Episode 4 2016/07/17,
Episode four of "The Good Wife" is definitely an improvement on the last one, as it balances its pacing and goes through the things we need to know before moving on. This time we have two cases which give us much needed exposition and a hefty dose of characterization. There is a lot more to Tae-joon, Joong-won and Sang-il than we see and they all sadly have a self-serving interest in Hye-kyeong's matters,...More
