[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Missing Noir M" Episode 1

2015/03/28 | | Permalink

Soo-hyeon (played by Kim Kang-woo) is a US-trained investigator who's very good at math puzzles. Dae-yeong (played by Park Hee-son) is a mostly standard grizzled street cop. Together they...well, they solve mysteries more than they fight crime. The whole reason Soo-hyeon's been dragged out to the field in the first place is because he's implicated in a bizarre crime. The perpetrator of these criminal actions (played by Kang Ha-neul) is apparently interested in matching wits with Soo-hyeon. I guess because in prison he has nothing better to do...More

[HanCinema's Drama Preview] "The Girl Who Sees Smells"

2015/03/28 | | Permalink

From mental illnesses to senses, 'The Girl Who Sees Smells' is here with a premise which is at the very least fresh. Not everything is as sugary as its promotional material, however, and it is very difficult to really get a feel for the actual work due to how its marketing and probable story tone will differ. Even so, there is promise here at the moment...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Jing Bi-rok" Episode 13

2015/03/28 | | Permalink

I've come around to the portrayal of Hideyoshi as being a crazy madman mostly because the more I think about it, the more applicable this depiction is to anybody who tries to declare war on another country. A person pretty much has to be deranged on some level to think that it's possible to bend an entirely different culture to his personal will. To some extent it's certainly possible to accomplish this via force, but time and again history has shown such efforts to be inevitably doomed to failure...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Foulball"

2015/03/28 | | Permalink

The Goyang Wonders were an independent baseball team that operated in Korea from 2011 to 2014. What that means is that they were not affiliated with the official national leagues, either on the major or minor level. Their professional output consisted entirely of training baseball players who had either been undrafted or released from teams, and giving them an occasional friendly match with a league team in order to show off their skills to scouts for actual real teams. Hence the documentary's title- when you hit a "Foulball", you're not one. You still get another chance to hit...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Ring of Life"

2015/03/28 | | Permalink

Every four years during the Olympics a large number of athletes in normally obscure sports appear to come out of nowhere. Never mind the top finishers- just getting to the Olympics is a trying ordeal. The bottom half that never even make it past the first round had to work hard just to even be an early loser. "The Ring of Life" that demonstrates this struggle. But more importantly it depicts the process. Boxing is a physically daunting and demanding sport. Why go for that in the face of a normal life?...More
