50th Baeksang Arts Awards
by | May 27, 2014 | 192 Comments
Spread the love around must’ve been this year’s mantra at the 50th annual Baeksang Awards, where the (somewhat) best of both film and television come to pick up shiny trophies. Once you get past the initial Huh, what, why? of the nominee list, the winners list is no surprise. There wasn’t a big sweep by... More »

Cast lined up for detective thriller Chronicle of Malice
by | May 20, 2014 | 15 Comments
Thankfully this is a movie, because I don’t know how many more cop dramas I can watch in one year, and with this cast I’d have to watch. Sohn Hyun-joo (Three Days) will be returning to the big screen to headline a detective thriller for his next project, and Daniel Choi (Big Man) has signed... More »

Three Days: Episode 16 (Final)
by | May 4, 2014 | 40 Comments
This series has been a roller coaster ride in terms of both its plot and its quality. When Three Days was good, it was very good and when it was bad… well, let’s try to focus on the good times, shall we? A drama can often be forgiven for some bumps along the way as... More »

Three Days: Episode 15

At least we know that with a show like Three Days, the final showdown’s the basket where they’ve put all the eggs. I’d argue that they did it at the expense of a more evenly paced drama, but at least I know they’re going to put some muscle (and money) behind an action-packed final week.... More »

Three Days: Episode 14
by | April 27, 2014 | 30 Comments
The race is on to identify a Jaesin mole working inside the Blue House. But in this mystery-heavy episode, the biggest question on my mind is how many times can you attempt to assassinate a president in the course of nine days? We won’t know for sure until next week’s finale, but this episode adds... More »

Three Days: Episode 13
by | April 23, 2014 | 61 Comments
I was expecting the two-week break between episodes to make my memory hazy on the details of this show, but as it turns out, when your plot is this simple there’s no misremembering things. Some people want the president dead, and other people want to protect him. Clear enough, but what do you do when... More »

Three Days: Episode 12

The drama gods must have been smiling on me this week. How else can you explain two dynamite episodes of Three Days back-to-back? With a little less mystery and lot more focus on character, Thursday’s episode seems to have gotten us a bit closer to the recipe for a perfect Three Days.   EPISODE 12... More »

Three Days: Episode 11

Augh, guys, this show is finally good. Or good again? I’m sure there’s actually a mathematical pattern to which episodes of this series are a cut above the rest, but that would require me to do math. Three Days is a drama written with such a focus on the mini-arcs that it has an interesting... More »

Three Days: Episode 10
by | April 6, 2014 | 26 Comments
Three Days’ non-linear storytelling was once again stretched to its limits in this installment. With so many jumps through time backwards, forwards, and sideways, you almost feel like you need some kind of four-dimensional map to see how it’s put together. And yet somehow, it all actually works. And I kind of can’t imagine a... More »

Three Days: Episode 9
by | April 2, 2014 | 36 Comments
We’re in the second three-day chunk of Three Days, which escalates the story—and the stakes—nicely, adding a twist and heightening conflict. Despite the dumbness of naming a drama Three Days and then exceeding three days in your timeline, I do think this escalation is working for the story; the initial premise of the first three-day...

Three Days: Episode 8
by | March 30, 2014 | 30 Comments
So much has happened up to now that it’s hard to believe we’re only at the halfway mark. This episode maintains the breakneck pace with more secrets from the past revealed, more mysteries to ponder, and yet another character who it turns out may not be as trustworthy as we once believed. Oh, and of... More »
