[Orion's Drama News] Timeless Kitsch

2017/05/27 | | Permalink

Get your baggy jeans and hoop earrings ready, because "The Best Hit" is here to bring back everything we find embarrassing and sometimes secretly still love from the 90s. Today I take a look at this quirky upcoming title before sharing the usual collection of weekly news. I have also started two of my three new dramas for this exciting season...More

[HanCinema's Drama Preview] "Duel"

2017/05/27 | | Permalink

Clones are the latest trend in Dramaland and like any trend in this industry, this horse will be beaten long past its expiration. For now, the still fresh topic gets its first drama with "Duel". Whether the clones in what looks like any other crime and suspense drama will be more than a gimmick remains to be seen.


Jang Deuk-cheon (Jeong Jae-yeong) is a detective with an ill daughter. One day he becomes entagled with two clones, one innocent and one evil, and his little girl is kidnapped. The detective begins a chase against great odds to solve the mystery of his situation and find his child before it is too late...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Merciless"

2017/05/27 | | Permalink

In the opening scene of "The Merciless", a couple of obvious criminals are having a dish of seafood, and discussing the unfortunate implications of of eating cuisine that appears to be looking at you. The end to their conversation is abrupt, and when the dust has settled, Jae-ho (played by Sul Kyung-yu) get one last ominous look at the fish, clearly the real villain. Then we see Hyeon-soo (played by Im Si-wan) exit jail and walk onto the set of a music video...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Blue Busking"

2017/05/27 | | Permalink

Ho-bin (played by Jo Han-seon) is a mildly famous person who is the drummer in an even more mildly famous band- the kind that gets booked for weddings. The other members want to try and improve their prospects with a road trip and Ho-bin, facing personal problems of his own, agrees. The gimmick is, they're going to take South Korea by donkey. While being followed by a car and camera, which kind of defeats the purpose of traveling around slowly with a donkey cart but whatever, I don't get social media marketing anyway...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "The Way - 2017"

2017/05/27 | | Permalink

Soon-ae (played by Kim Hye-ja), Sang-beom (played by Song Jae-ho), and Soo-mi (played by Her Jin) are old people who knew each other a very long time ago as students. They don't anymore- nor do they ever meet as adults, and we don't find out what happened to the fourth character in the flashbacks either. Going by the generally dark overall tone of "The Way - 2017", he's probably dead. Still, memories of those idyllic times pop up in their individual stories, a stark reminder of a the radically different world they now live in...More
