I like it. I really, really like it. Yong-pal is sleek, stylish, but most of all, human—and it never gets so caught up in its beautiful and sometimes haunting imagery that it forgets what it wants to say. It’s just the opposite actually, since the visuals work to add depth to the narrative, which isn’t... More »

The drama’s first poster trapped “Sleeping Beauty” heroine... More »
