[HanCinema's Drama Review] "A Korean Odyssey" Episode 6 2018/01/16,
Ask and you shall receive, and although "A Korean Odyssey" is still dawdling on and regurgitating a lot of its key concepts this time around, there is at least one major point of progress in the ever so shaky thing that is its main romance. Ma-wang is feeling the burn of his little tasting and we are slowly discovering some connections made by our self-centered group of supernatural misfits,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "A Korean Odyssey" Episode 5 2018/01/15,
Seon-mi's burdens keep multiplying, as something happens to put our previously detached Bull Demon King in a much more invested position. After the big revelation of our heroine's mission, "A Korean Odyssey" takes a step back to look at her unique connection to Oh-gong. While the nature of this fake bond has been there for us to see, it is starting to dawn on Seon-mi that her needs tend to feed a dangerous and painful delusion of closeness on her end,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "A Korean Odyssey" Episode 4 2018/01/08,
Well, I asked for a main story and for Seon-mi's purpose in it, and episode four of "A Korean Odyssey" delivers. It turns out that our heroine has a much heavier burden to bear than expected and she needs her group of merry monsters to help her carry it. Seon-mi starts bonding with the group, but the reality of Oh-gong's forced connection to her leaves her feeling lonely as a challenging future approaches,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "A Korean Odyssey" Episode 3 2018/01/07, "A Korean Odyssey" is back this week and although the messy production and the injury that was caused due to it should never be forgotten or treated lightly, it looks like enough measures have been taken to keep the related authorities pleased for now. Story-wise, we are starting to get hints about the why of it all and the role of Seon-mi's fate in it, but we also meet new characters and backstories,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "A Korean Odyssey" Episode 2 2017/12/26,
The plot thickens and by that I mean the new ways in which every character here tries to backstab one another. This is the only story to speak of at the moment and while the romance is apparently getting started, we still do not know what role Seon-mi's existence as Sam Jang will play. "A Korean Odyssey" (also known as "Hwayugi) is fun in a cheesy way, but we need more story and it has to come soon,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "A Korean Odyssey" Episode 1 2017/12/25,
It has been a while since the Hong sisters were in any way exciting and while "A Korean Odyssey" (also known as "Hwayugi") is not exactly wowing with its first episode, the drama presents the workings of what could be a really fun story. We have a case of every man and beastie for themselves, as we meet a lot of characters, none of them anything but self-serving and with some pretty hefty behavioral and personality issues. I pity our heroine already,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Preview] "Warm and Cozy" 2015/05/09, Hong Jeong-eun and Hong Mi-ran are among the most beloved Korean drama writers, especially for foreign fans. Their romantic comedies offer star power and successful pairings, lively and unique characters and a writing style many love. Despite a few bumps along the way, their shows are entertaining and well received. Their latest installment is "Warm and Cozy", a phrase which will hopefully describe viewer sentiment throughout,...More
Kim Jae-wook says Kim Nam-gil "like a time bomb" - Part 2 2010/05/20, Source, Q: I think you've lost a bit more weight. Is it because of the hernia?Kim Nam-gil: Hm, because director Lee gives me a hard time? (laugh) I actually slept after eating ramen at five in the morning so it's a relief to hear that. (laugh) I lost weight once for film "Lovers Vanished and just didn't have to gain weight after shooting "Queen Seon-deok" for six, seven months. I'm not trying to lose weight but I just do and there are also scenes where I have to take off my clothes so... Q: How was it working with director Lee Hyeong-min? Kim NG: I miss director Park Hong-gyoon from "Queen Seon-deok". Park was someone who is into the details but director Lee is also like that but to the extent that I felt like I was suffocating. So I called director Park recently and told him I miss him. (laugh)
