While the articles were supposed to be about his cameo in the upcoming film Lucid Dream, I was more struck by the realization that Yoochun (Girl Who Sees Smells) will be heading to the military soon — waaah! He’ll have a bit part in the movie as a character who helps Go Soo, a father... More »

Kim Soo-hyun Sniff, it will be a while longer before everyone’s favorite alien professor returns to the small screen; Kim Soo-hyun has turned down the lead in Dr. Frankenstein, in which he would’ve played the brilliant hero with exceptional medical abilities but a split personality. Given that there’s already a handful of dramas dealing with... More »

Movie Review: Voice (Whispering Corridors 4, 2005)
by | August 31, 2014 | 6 Comments
It seems to me that as the Whispering Corridors series goes on, the degree of commentary the films make about high school lessens in each installment. The original Whispering Corridors was a scathing indictment of the abuses that youth endure at school and the second pointed a finger at the rigidity of social structures and... More »

With JTBC’s current Monday-Tuesday drama Secret Love Affair coming to a close this week, it’s already time to usher in the next series — the quirky crime family comedy (at least I think that’s the genre anyway) called Yoo-na’s Street. It stars Kim Ok-bin (Sword and Flower) as a legendary pickpocket and member of a... More »

Sword and Flower: Episode 20 (Final)
by | September 8, 2013 | 145 Comments
I’ve had pretty bad luck with finales lately (in that I’m starting to forget what it feels like to watch a good one), and while the ending for Sword and Flower doesn’t strike like lightning out of a clear blue sky, it does serve as a textbook example of everything that makes viewers wary to...

Our princess’ future with her eternally loving bodyguard is at stake, but you’d hardly know it by the way everyone moseys around this hour. A literal war happens off-screen in the time it takes for Mu-young to not make a decision, which gives the Slim Bad of the show all the time he needs to... More »

Mu-young faces a tough decision going forward—will she learn to let go, or die holding on?—while our hero tries to give her a third (and some would say better) option. Whether they’ll have a hand in... More »

It’s our princess’s last chance to exact her revenge, and if she doesn’t succeed, she’s sure as hell going to go down trying. This episode is an improvement without actually improving all that much—it just makes it easier to forget most of what didn’t work when the payoffs are good. I think I’d hate this... More »
