[HanCinema's Drama Review] "The Night Watchman's Journal" Episode 13

2014/09/15 | | Permalink

The early part of this episode doesn't even bother focusing on the heroes at all. It's just Sadam's wacky schemes and all the other villainous or semi-villainous characters are trailing behind in his wake, either impotently watching him do spooky evil stuff or impotently fuming about the fact that they can't stop him from doing spooky evil stuff. For quite some time it certainly seems that the writers have decided they don't actually have anything interesting for the heroes to do so, well, let's focus on the characters with actual motivation.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "My Secret Hotel" Episode 7

2014/09/15 | | Permalink

There are almost no murder mystery elements at all in "My Secret Hotel" this episode as the romantic tribulations take on full focus.

This is full on satire about modern wedding culture and its relationship to romance...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Blade Man" Episode 2

2014/09/15 | | Permalink

"Blade Man" is a show that takes the normal set-up elements of K-drama and morphs them into something new. The unexpected child is not just a silent motivator, but a full-fledged character who inspires plot movement. The female lead isn't just an airhead with no power. She has intelligence and drive. The male lead is both completely unlikeable and entirely pitiable. On top of these are the beautiful camera styling by the director.

I find "Blade Man" a delightful surprise because its promotional material made it seem like "just another" K-drama with nothing innovational...More
