[HanCinema's Film Review] "Granny's Got Talent" 2015/04/11, Kim Soo-mi plays an old woman who, in everyday life, has to submit to the normal low-class indignities of being a maid, along with a small gamut of other familial problems. However, every so often, she does get to go out in the middle of nowhere and just cuss out every single person or thing in hearing distance. And that's pretty much the entire movie. There is something about a national swearing competition thrown in there, but don't expect too much emphasis on that front. The main serious rival doesn't even show up until the movie's almost over,...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "The Prime Minister and I" Episode 14 2014/01/27,
The more vengeance related elements of the drama are starting to fizzle out. It really stinks for In-ho to have gone through all this trouble to try and set up this plan, only to find out now at the last minute that it was all for nothing. It's not that anything has actually happened to endanger the schemes or anything. There's just new information that's come up, pretty much out of nowhere, which calls the rationale of everything that's happened on the spy end of the plot into question.
Mind, there are still some unanswered questions. I can buy that Na-yeong (played by Jung Ae-yun) survived the accident, but why was everyone so sure she was dead when the body was never found? How has she been getting along this whole time?,...More

Gay-themed 'Weddings' picks fun over logic 2012/06/18, Source,

By Kwaak Je-yup Whether he likes it or not, the films of Kim Jho Kwang-soo have come to embody more than just entertainment. For a country where the population is largely unfamiliar with homosexuality, the works of an openly gay director and his portrayals of life in the closet are often the only medium for the general heterosexual audience to grasp the concept of same-sex relationships. In his debut feature film "Two Weddings and a Funeral", which opens next week, KimJho seems to disregard this responsibility. Light on logic and heavy on cheap humor and melodrama - with cringeworthy amateurish music and sound effects - the movie portrays self-celebration and self-parody at the same time,...More
