"Maycgre 1.0"

Label: Private Curve

Genre: World

The bandoneon was one of the least appealing musical instruments to me, and certainly one of the last I thought would inspire me to pick out an album based on it. For me, it was just a famous Argentine instrument that accompanies the tango.

But the animated music video for "Sortie" drew me to bandoneon player and composer Koh Sang-ji's debut album "Maycgre 1.0". The music video looked more like the opening of a Japanese animated television series. Indeed, Koh says she's a big fan of the Japanese anime "Evangelion", and the album's name is a reference to some of the characters in the show...More

GG kicks Jessica out of group

Girls' Generation announced through its agency yesterday that Jessica will no longer be in the girl group, citing difficulties fixing schedules after the member recently launched her own fashion brand.

Through a press statement released yesterday afternoon, SM Entertainment said Jessica approached the company earlier this year, saying that she would leave the nine-member band after releasing one last album because of "personal reasons"...More

Label: KT Music

Genre: Electronica

Clazziquai, a local group known as leaders in the electronica genre in Korea, returns with a sixth album. This time, though, a different genre of songs is packed into the record, "Blink", from funky electronic tracks to ballads. Even the cohesive Latin electronic song, "Life Etc"., has an addictive hook...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "The Night Watchman's Journal" Episode 18

2014/09/30 | | Permalink

At this point it's hard to come to any reasonable conclusion about the characters in "The Night Watchman's Journal" save that they're all really, really dumb. So there are two Do-ha's, and the ghost detector is broken. Not only do the other leads fail to identify the fake Do-ha (apparently simply asking her personal questions was considered unreasonable) they don't bother to keep either Do-ha under guard. The results are predictable and stupid.

This wouldn't be so agitating except that the fake Do-ha doesn't act like the real Do-ha at all. She's very forward, sneaky, and winsome. These words that have never at any point defined the real Do-ha's personality...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "My Secret Hotel" Episode 12

2014/09/30 | | Permalink

While I can understand why Sang-hyo agreed to Hae-yeong's request, this episode really seems to undercut the recent point of "My Secret Hotel", which is that Hae-yeong has lost out because the sincerity of his emotions can't really override the fact that the guy's basically a selfish jerk. The drama continues to provide a somewhat compelling argument that Sang-hyo probably shouldn't end up together with either of the male leads, given that they have such obvious unresolved issues. Also one or both of the might be murderers.

For the sake of Hae-yeong, there is something of an argument to be made here that he and Sang-hyo can actually get along fairly functionally and effectively if they're working for the pursuance of some greater goal...More
