One major connection is made, and another thwarted. One hero laments what he’s done to his family for his country, while the other laments what he’s done to his countrymen for his family. It’s such a gripping, heartbreaking irony at the center of it all. Tags: featured, Gaksital, Han Chae-ah, Jin Sae-yeon, Joo-won, Park Ki-woong,... More »

Big: Episode 2
by | June 5, 2012 | 269 Comments
Well that’s better. It’s like it took an episode to rev up (which makes sense given the premise, but it did feel surprisingly subdued). To make up for a less joke-filled premiere, Episode 2 brings the body swap comedy, the sex comedy, and some zippy plot to boot. We knew the premise going in, but... More »

by | June 5, 2012 | 119 Comments
This shoot is both hit and miss all in one, which is interesting, but I do really love two of the looks on Yoon Eun-hye, featured in the current issue of High Cut. The jumpsuit is something almost no one can pull off in actual life — you want to look like a 60s goddess... More »

Gaksital: Episode 2
by | May 31, 2012 | 158 Comments
LOVE. This show’s got the goods, and then some—badass action, gripping intrigue, dark and layered characterization, and a style straight out of my favorite era of Hollywood cinema. It’s Bogart-meets-Batman, set in the political wasps’ nest of the occupation era. Be still my heart. Tags: featured, Gaksital, Jeon No-min, Jin Sae-yeon, Joo-won, Park Ki-woong, Shin... More »
