Movie Review: Wishing Stairs (2003)
by | July 14, 2014 | 16 Comments
The third film in the Whispering Corridors series, Wishing Stairs (여고괴담 세 번째 이야기: 여우계단), was released four years after the second, Memento Mori. While the original Whispering Corridors and its immediate follow-up were in many ways genre-defining, the wave of popular horror films that followed them in Korea and elsewhere in Asia meant that...

The final episode! The final mystery! The final battle! Everything culminates to this episode, and I am warning those who haven’t seen it yet that it is MESSED UP. Just to recap before everyone gets confused, we have several cases going on: the present-time murder with an unnamed victim in motel room 101, the murder... More »

Special Affairs Team TEN: Episode 8
by | April 22, 2012 | 27 Comments
It’s the beginning of the end! Honestly, ever since I started recapping this drama, all I ever heard about was this end. Thankfully, everyone’s been really awesome and haven’t spoiled a single thing, though I’ve gleaned that it’s an open-ended kind of ending. So here we go – what confusing are we plunging forth into!?... More »

Special Affairs Team TEN: Episode 7

I present Part 2 of the Kidnapping of Min Chae Won! It’s crazy to think that it’s now nearing the end! This case has it’s own twists and turns, and certainly not as complex as the first episode. But what I like about the twists in this series is that each layer of doubt has... More »

Special Affairs Team TEN: Episode 6
by | April 8, 2012 | 21 Comments
This episode is part one of a two-parter case, titled “Part 1: The Kidnapping of Min Chae Won.” I think this episode just sets us up for the twisted-ness that comes in part 2, mainly because we have a standard kidnapping, and our team is simply unable to track down where the kid is. Part... More »

Special Affairs Team TEN: Episode 5

This is one sad case. Episode 5 is titled “The Forest Chaser,” but I think the episode could also have been called “The Good Samaritan.” This episode had a few more twists – one more heart wrenching than the last.... More »

Special Affairs Team TEN: Episode 3

Time for some love for Do Shik! And Min Ho’s cute glare. The title of this episode is “Mimosa,” in reference to a plant (not the drink) that shrinks when touched. It’s known to be a shy plant, and its nature is allegorical to the case and the suspect in question. Song of the Day... More »

Special Affairs Team TEN: Episode 2

Without a two-hour running time, this episode went by much more quickly and had less twists and turns. Oh my happy head – it wasn’t spinning! But we get a little more insight into Ji Hoon’s character, and hints to his past. He might be cold, but he’s so lovable as a hero.... More »

And we continue on with Part 2! The more twists that occurred just solidified my excitement for this drama. Granted it aired in late 2011, but hey, better late than never!... More »
