Missing Noir M: Episode 1
by | March 29, 2015 | 21 Comments
Now this is what I call a slick and smartly-written crime procedural. OCN’s newest Saturday drama Missing Noir M premiered this week, introducing us to a team composed of a highly gifted former FBI agent, an experienced detective, and a hacker tackling on the most difficult missing persons cases out there. Our opening case pulls... More »

Missing Noir M’s not-so-friendly buddy cops
by | February 18, 2015 | 26 Comments
Cameras began rolling on OCN’s newest thriller, which underwent a title change from Missing Persons Investigation Unit M to the somewhat less sensical Missing Noir M. I get that all those words are relevant to the show, but I feel like you’re trying to tell me that your show is missing the noir element, which... More »

I like the way the pieces are falling into place for the upcoming sageuk film The King’s Advisor. Joo Ji-hoon (Medical Top Team) had already signed on as the treacherous advisor who wields immense power over King Yeonsangun, widely regarded as one of the worst kings of the Joseon era. Joo’s advisor character is thought... More »

Golden Cross: Episode 1
by | April 10, 2014 | 42 Comments
Here was my thought process in the moments before watching Golden Cross’ premiere episode: If you’re bad, it would be a relief. Then I don’t have to worry about having to recap you. Maybe you’ll be bad. You could be bad. Sure your writer wrote Gaksital which I loved, but that was a historical action... More »

Greed and crime drive financial thriller Golden Cross
by | April 3, 2014 | 22 Comments
The first poster’s out for KBS’s Golden Cross, and it looks pretty sleek. It also sort of looks like Kim Kang-woo is hugging himself (and Lee Shi-young), but overall the broken visual effect is kinda cool. The copy on the poster reads: “0.001% of greed, 100% of crimes, 1% of evidence.” It’s mathy, but I’ll... More »

by | March 4, 2014 | 26 Comments
Will this drama ever find its hero? I’m actually more intrigued by the behind-the-scenes drama of KBS’s newest revenge melo Golden Cross than in the drama itself, but one thing’s for sure: if Kim Kang-woo (Tabloid) signs on, I will suddenly find myself verrry interested. The new Wednesday-Thursday drama for KBS’s spring slate has cycled... More »
