It's getting difficult to recommend "Missing Noir M" at this point. The issue isn't that the drama's getting bad exactly, but more than the stories are consistently really kind of dispiriting. This is even explicitly discussed at the end- technically this is once again another mostly happy ending where no one actually got hurt. Or at least, no one got hurt who didn't already mostly deserve it. Poetic justice is a pretty sorry recompense for serious loss though...More
The formulaic nature of "Let the Girl Cry" puzzles me. It's mostly because this isn't really a genre combination that makes a whole lot of sense. The ex-cop who solves crimes by beating the living snot out every single low-life in punching range is the kind of trope I expect to see in a hard-boiled action movie. Somehow I was expecting Deok-in's investigation to involve more actual investigating and less excessive violence...More
The theme this episode appears to be how war doesn't make anyone happy. The Korean leadership is angry because they've managed a temporary stalemate with no real options. The Japanese leadership is upset because given the prior pace they should have won the war by now. The Japanese military leaders are worried because there's no positive way to spin these setbacks.

The shift to more conventional storytelling is very evident here. At one point a flashback quite explicitly points out that the first couple of episodes were pretty nuts. But for the most part Ji-na tries to solve problems here by, well, coming up with an actual plan. Rather than accidentally running into Tae-woon, this time ji-na deliberately seeks him out to ask for his help. Even the rather unexpected obstacle is resolved with relatively little mess...More
Gaining the love of audiences is quite easy when those audiences feel their needs are a priority. "Blood" received a lot of criticism for its two leads' acting skills and that criticism is accurate. However, it would be unfair to say that this is the only problem of the series. It would also be unfair to say there is nothing good here to be found. It all comes down to balancing the bad with good. Unfortunately, that is where "Blood" fails...More
