Cantabile Tomorrow: Episode 4
by | October 21, 2014 | 117 Comments
Our hero learns the hard way that assembling an orchestra and being given a chance to conduct is just the beginning of his journey, and that there’s an entire component to leading an orchestra that never occurred to him before—the people playing the instruments, and all of their very human foibles and individual problems. For... More »

The orchestra is assembled, the conductor is chosen (…sort of), and the main plotline gets going in earnest, although it’s no easy victory for our hero.

Well I guess you can’t really blame a girl for falling in love this quickly when our hero is so swoony. He spends a good deal of time trying to convince her that what she’s feeling isn’t love, while she runs around trying to touch him as much as possible. Do I find her weird?... More »

Is it too early to say that I’m in love with a show? I’m both excited and relieved, because while I was hoping for the best, I was certainly aware that Cantabile Tomorrow comes with a lot of baggage, and that even in a good-case scenario, it was fighting an uphill battle. The original material... More »

Aside from that blip that we shall not speak of, I’m feeling pretty good about the casting for the Nodame Cantabile remake, which is tapping rising actor Go Kyung-pyo to play the Mine character.

Cha Seung-won’s tortured inner life in High Heel
by | May 31, 2014 | 63 Comments
When I first heard about the movie High Heel (also called Man on High Heels), in which Cha Seung-won teams with director Jang Jin of all those heartwarming funny feel-good movies (and Saturday Night Live Korea), playing a cop who likes to dress up in women’s clothing, I was expecting funny. Upbeat. Poignant and humorous.... More »

Up-and-comers in Scary Story 2
by | March 8, 2013 | 51 Comments
All right, there’s a new horror flick out there called Scary Story 2, and for any other reason it would sound forgettable and bland… except for its cast, which is chock-full of promising up-and-comers. First off we have Sung Joon (Can We Get Married, Shut Up: Flower Boy Band, White Christmas), whom I’d wager on... More »
