[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Black" Episode 18 Final

2017/12/11 | | Permalink

The much dreaded ending of another Choi Ran-I work has come and if I can give "Black" credit for something, that would be persistence in tackling whatever it does choose to tackle until the end. We get more answers than expected in the final episode and some are highly satisfying. Others are confusing and remain as plot holes. Sadly, the ending itself undoes a lot of the good in "Black"...More

[Orion's Daily Ramblings] First Stills of Lee Bo-young in "Mother - Drama"

2017/12/11 | | Permalink

At long last, we get our first peek into the Korean remake for a beloved Japanese drama and it's amazing how simply looking at a solid actress can get one's excitement going. Lee Bo-young ("Whisper", "God's Gift - 14 Days") is pictured as the seemingly cool and collected temp school teacher, Nam Soo-jin. Despite her cold appearance, the heroine connects with a student name Hye-na...More

[Orion's Daily Ramblings] Kim Hyun-joo and Kim Kang-woo Considering "Accompanying Husband Oh Jak-doo"

2017/12/11 | | Permalink

Kim Hyun-joo ("Fantastic", "I Have a Lover") and Kim Kang-woo ("Circle", "Goodbye Mr. Black") are considering weekend drama "Accompanying Husband Oh Jak-doo", which has also been courting Han Sunhwa ("Boy and Girl From the 20th Century", "School 2017") as its lead recently. This is the kind of casting which makes a drama fan's heart flutter, although no confirmation means that we don't get to be happy yet...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Just Lovers" Episode 1

2017/12/11 | | Permalink

At first glance, "Just Lovers" is a typical romance. You've got the woman, Moon-soo (played by Won Jin-ah), who suffered through a horrible tragedy in her teen years, and now struggles to keep her family together economically and emotionally. Then you've got the man, Kang-doo (played by Junho), with a similar tragic backstory who is...wait, he's not rich? Kang-doo is just a working class construction worker who lives in constant rage about how the world is fundamentally unjust? And he hangs out in the foreigner districts...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Jugglers" Episode 3

2017/12/11 | | Permalink

Jeong-ae (played by Kang Hye-jeong) is a married woman and Yoon-i's friend. Her husband recently disappeared without explanation, and it appears that he owed money to gangsters. So Jeong-ae ends up struggling to find a job. She fails at nearly every single task she attempts, mostly due to inappropriate soft-heartedness. Eventually Jeong-ae becomes a secretary. I know this because it is in her character description, which oddly enough does not mention anything about her family or gangster debts...More

[HanCinema's Box Office Review] 2017.12.08 - 2017.12.10

2017/12/11 | | Permalink

"The Swindlers", "Forgotten", and Korea's favourite little penguin take the podium...

Jang Chang-won's debut film "The Swindlers" enjoyed its third consecutive weekend at the top of the box office by claiming another 418,141 admissions, 23.84% of the sales. Since its release late last month, Jang's action drama has held off cinematic challenges both foreign and domestic to remain Korea's number one. The film stars Hyun Bin, Yoo Ji-tae, Bae Sung-woo, Park Sung-woong, Nana, and Ahn Se-ha in a story about a conman who schemes to outplay an even bigger swindler. With a total take now of $26.7 million (3.78 million admissions), "Swindlers" is the twelfth highest-grossing film of the year...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Black" Episode 17

2017/12/10 | | Permalink

Finding out the truth we have already known does not make it easier for our Reaper dearest, and 444 has a lot of deeply personal things to tackle in the penultimate episode of "Black". A lot happened on that fateful night when the children became involved with Wang Young-choon's search for the tape and coming to terms with it all, but also with some dire new information is not an easy feat...More
