Sin Ho-seong's room. By Yi Woo-gi. They left on Tuesday saying they would be back on Friday. Photographed above are the rooms of students who died in the Sewol ferry disaster while on their way to Jeju Island for a school trip. School uniforms are hung on racks, stuffed animals are placed neatly on beds and posters of boy bands decorate walls, as if waiting for the children to come back. The exhibition's organizers say that although remembering is painful, their goal is to archive records related to the incident and the victims.
It has been a year since 304 of the 476 people aboard the Sewol ferry lost their lives when the ship sank, rocking the whole nation and leaving lasting emotional scars on the families and friends of the victims...More
Deok-in (played by Kim Jeong-eun) is an ex-cop who runs a snack shop next to the local school. Jin-woo (played by Song Chang-ee) is a math teacher who does his best to keep his students in line. Together, they fight bullying. Well, eventually. They don't actually know each other as the drama opens- a fact Deok-in takes memorable advantage of in one scene to teach those kids a lesson in plausible deniability...More
As the opening helpfully reminds us, again, what this war is actually about is the wishes of the people. The Koreans do not do a very good job of managing this. But the Japanese do even worse, as we early on get a shot of a rather abrupt, messy, and probably unnecessary execution. I try to give "Jing Bi-rok" credit on the racism question but that whole bit was just a tad over the top. Even if we are eventually moving to a comeuppance- knowing the overall thrust of the story doesn't make it any less awkward in the moment. Well, most of the time anyway...More
Any fears I had last episode about "My Unfortunate Boyfriend" not taking Ji-na to task for her bad behavior would appear to have been unfounded. Right away Ji-na is confronted rather uncomfortably about how inappropriate it is to hit another person with so little provocation. What's more, Ji-na is so ashamed of herself that she manages to completely forget why she came to the arboretum in the first place. The results are rather comical...More
This mystery's format somewhat disappointedly takes the same overall thrust as the last one. We discover, as expected, that the apparent victim in this case isn't quite so innocent as he may have initially appeared. What's more, there's a lot of lateral thinking involved here to figure out just how far this conspiracy extends, and how many characters have hidden agendas and past crimes that they're making a point of covering up...More
