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 »

High-octane thrills for fugitive Gong Yoo in The Suspect
by | December 1, 2013 | 43 Comments
Sure, it’s a pretty timeworn formula to make your blockbuster action movie about a super spy who’s been left to fend for himself in a strange land, but hell, I’ve seen the Bourne trilogy more times than I can count, so it’s not like I’d say no to slick, pulse-pounding thrills. Plus, Gong Yoo. His... More »

Posters for All About My Romance
by | March 29, 2013 | 63 Comments
Upcoming political rom-com All About My Romance has finally released its posters, and uh… the result is a little underwhelming. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen fanart pop up two hours after a drama casting announcement (*cough Lee Min-ho cough*) that look better than these, but I think the white ones are likely pre-photoshop, which then...

Movie Review: Gabi (Coffee)
by | October 14, 2012 | 35 Comments
There is one thing that pulled me into watching this film, and that one thing delivered. In this quiet conspiracy thriller, Kim So Yeon battles her conscience as a spy who’s ordered to assassinate Emperor Gojong in the late 1890s. Also starring Joo Jin Mo and Yoo Sun, this film was certainly not what I expected in more ways... More »

Movie Review: The Client
by | April 22, 2012 | 56 Comments
Considered the first Korean courtroom thriller to hit the big screen, The Client is a commanding cerebral experience headlined by three acting heavyweights and a taut storyline that will keep you guessing, or at the very least second-guessing, until its explosive finale. It premiered to critical and box office success, taking second place to The... More »
