[HanCinema's Film Review] "Roman Holiday" 2017/09/16,
Instead of seeming like a very serious enterprise between tough hardened criminals, the opening arms deal of "Roman Holiday" comes off as comically casual. The seller is a foreign huckster, and the buyers are a trio of general nitwits, although both sides do their best to pretend to be cool and unassuming. The ensuing heist made with these weapons goes on about as clumsily, as do all the following scenes until the main characters finally arrive at "Roman Holiday", a nightclub. Or is it more a state of mind?,...More

The year is 1962. Jang-han (played by Park Hae-il) is working as a reporter in South Korea, having managed to survive the last fifty-odd years of brutal repression.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Lucky Romance" Episode 7 2016/06/15,
Bonnie continues to sulk about how Soo-ho sabotaged an intimate encounter which at best was going to result in an unauthorized video floating around the Internet and at worst was going to be a gang rape. Bonnie does tend to be frustrating like that- for all her powerful faith in the whims of fortune, Bonnie is rather unappreciative of actual people making a real direct effort to help her and tends to stick to the whole "have sex with a tiger" command very literally,...More

The new MBC drama "Lucky Romance" released three points to watch out for. "Lucky Romance" is proud to say that it sets itself apart from other romantic comedies with a different story, direction and performance by the cast.
The third point to watch out for is Hwang Jung-eum's performance. She takes on the role of Bonnie Sim, a positive and cheerful character who falls for superstition. In the still cut of her, she's looking at the sky with a sad expression on her face,...More
'Caffeine:' fairy-tale musical for drama fans 2012/02/06, Source,
For fans of syrupy love-themed Korean dramas, your dream musical is here once again. Set in an intimate 359-seat hall, packed with humor and armed with a charismatic cast, "Caffeine" is set for another successful run on its hands, its third in two years.
Odd beverage-themed analogies, overly quick narrative jumps and forgettable opening numbers notwithstanding, the work makes it to the end in one piece, thanks to the easy-to-understand plot and the onstage couple's inspired acting, singing and chemistry. The result is a light-hearted movie-like spectacle, an entertaining experience to be sure but without lasting impact,...More
