“School is hell.” That was the premise of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, and it’s one that resonates throughout contemporary fiction, including in Korea. And given the pressures and violence that Korean students may face in school, it’s no surprise that Korean cinema set in high school is littered with stories of bullies, stress, and sometimes horrifying...

Illustration by Ally *peeks through hands* Is it over? Did I make it? Are we finally at the end of this One Road and all the puns we can possibly milk out of that name?

Illustration by Ally We’re heading into our last stretch, and you know, in this episode I see nuggets of a Story That Could Have Been. I suppose that’s been the case the whole show long, though, so it’s not exactly news. But what Level 7 Civil Servant got all wrong (one of several things) is... More »

Illustration by Ally Dude, someone pop the champagne. Our spies actually FIGURE STUFF OUT. For realsies. Connecting dots and everything. Okay, so maybe it’s eons too late and we’ve been twiddling our thumbs wondering why they don’t know stuff that we’ve known for weeks, but hey, not looking a gift horse in the mouth. Tags:... More »

Level 7 Civil Servant: Episode 15

Illustration by Ally We just had too many awesome illustrations not to include more. Seriously, how great are they? It’s more of the same for Level 7 Civil Servant, with trust stepping forward as a major thematic player and alliances shifting, sorta. The ratings are dropping, though it’s little wonder now that the big relationship... More »
