Last: Episode 1
by | August 1, 2015 | 20 Comments
Last breaks in fast and stylish — not the story of a man falling into ruin, but almost a classic underdog tale. Because he’s at the bottom, the only way he can go is up, right? It’s a reassuring safety net, because while it’s fun to be at the edge of your seat, it’s also... More »

JTBC, you are killing me with your Last teasers. Omgah, what will it take for you to make some that actually move??

JTBC’s upcoming weekend thriller drama Last has a couple teasers out now, which do a lot of teasing and not really any telling. Mostly, I want JTBC to assure me that yes, there will be moving pictures in this show, right? Not just a bunch of still images, set to music like some kind of... More »

2014 Busan International Film Festival’s opening red carpet
by | October 2, 2014 | 59 Comments

But let our pain be... More »
