[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Grandpas Over Flowers Investigation Team" Episode 12 Final

2014/07/25 | | Permalink

Right to the end, "Grandpas Over Flowers Investigation Team" can't make up it's mind as to whether it wants to be serious or silly. Fortunately these sections are fairly well compartmentalized this time around. The first part of this episode deals with the greater conflict of the evil guy who's responsible for the age shifting shenanigans and who is, in fact, literally a wizard. Not that this explains why it's impossible to hold him responsible for any of the countless crimes he's committed but hey, an explanation is an explanation...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Broken"

2014/07/25 | | Permalink

In last year's "Fatal", a sharp change in the action arises when a character asks, what about those criminals who redeem themselves? Their victims have to remain living in suffering trauma as a result of the damage done to them, yet a redeemed criminal can just go about their life as normal. It's obviously the Christian thing to do to forgive people for such actions- but how can a victim accept that in the moment, dealing with a perpetrator who, provided that he's not caught, will never atone, and laugh derisively at the idea that he should?...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Tunnel 3D"

2014/07/25 | | Permalink

I kept wondering throughout "Tunnel 3D" whether this film was inspired by some sort of real life incident. It's not that the movie is realistic in any way, don't get me wrong. It's just that the characters keep going on about how they need to make the the tunnel a monument to remember something and I'm just thinking, remember what? Was there some major tunnel related accident in South Korea in recent years that I hadn't heard about?...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Welcome"

2014/07/25 | | Permalink

Hye-sook (played by Shim Hye-jin) manages a fairly unremarkable restaurant in Seoul, and resists efforts to go back to her hometown of Andong for even the shortest stretch of time. Why? Well...there isn't a good reason really. You ever made one of those decisions in life that seemed like a smart idea at the time, but hasn't really seemed to pan out since then? But at the same time life isn't so terrible that you want to swallow your pride and admit you were wrong? That's where Hye-sook is...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Fated To Love You" Episode 1

2014/07/25 | | Permalink

The first episode of "Fated to Love You" was fun, whimsical, and full of the zany Taiwanese drama style while still remaining true to Korean drama style. The characters were wacky, but endearing, and the plot moved quickly towards the event that sets of the main couple's journey.

From the get-go, "Fated to Love You" bolted out of the gates, giving us some over-the-top humor with male lead Lee Geon (Jang Hyeok) that was a milder version of the drawn out scenarios that Taiwanese dramas favor...More
