'Brother Enemy - Poems of the Korean War' Edited and translated by Suh Ji-Moon (White Pine Press)

A collection of poetry, "Brother Enemy - Poems of the Korean War", with entries spanning professional writers enlisted into the army through to common soldiers yet all writing about the Korean War, was translated and published in English in 2002.

"Birth of a Beauty" manages to close most of the important information gaps by the end of the episode, so this isn't that big a deal, and for the most part, the plan remains intact. But fractures do appear, which means that the general humiliation of the villains probably isn't going to go on indefinitely...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Modern Farmer" Episode 11

2014/11/22 | | Permalink

By this point "Modern Farmer" has picked up about a dozen subplots that I can see, and this episode helpfully adds even more. I'm not complaining, exactly, since none of these stories are all that bad.
