So, when I first heard about this movie God’s Play about a baduk player, I wondered how on earth they’d raise the stakes and keep things interesting. Because there are really only so many times you can watch people play the same game in one movie. The answer, as it turns out, is genius-simple: You... 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 »

Horror flick The Webtoon unleashes spine-chilling trailer
by | May 16, 2013 | 84 Comments
So usually I’ll watch a movie trailer and look for things to like about it, sometimes very readily and at other times with effort, in my lifelong goal of hoping for the best. It doesn’t always work out, but it’s a worthy pursuit, I think. That said, after seeing the trailer for upcoming serial killer... More »

by | May 11, 2013 | 26 Comments
Lee Shi-young (Wild Romance) and Eom Ki-joon (The Virus) have a summer horror thriller on the way, and it seems more up my alley as far as horror goes — less chainsaw massacre, more creepy tense murder mystery. The movie is called The Webtoon: Foretold Murder, about a serial killer who copies the murders in... More »

by | January 12, 2013 | 48 Comments
Lee Shi-young really does have a great niche carved out as a quirky rom-com heroine. She’s got a new movie due out next month called, hilariously, Men: An Operating Manual. (It’s the best way to translate it without calling the thing How to Use Men, which sounds like a whole other thing entirely.) Her leading... More »
