[HanCinema’s Drama Review] “Bride of the Water God 2017” Episode 7

Even ignoring the issues with So-ah's personality, she's also an unspiring character on account of her sheer passivity. Time and again, rather than do anything constructive to assist in her goals or Ha-baek's, So-ah just gets unceremoniously tossed into life threatening danger and has to be rescued from her plight by another character with actual competence. Whether that competence is in the form of a gun, better driving skills, or literal magical powers, the effect is the same- So-ah just ends up feeling like dead weight.

[HanCinema’s Drama Review] “The King Loves” Episodes 5-6

So it's not just my imagination- the opening crawl explaining the background of "The King Loves", with the threat of Mongol invasion, coupled with the increasingly aggressive character descriptions, make it pretty clear that even the production team has realized the content of this drama is incredibly dense. Unfortunately background alone doesn't really help explain motivation. That much is a pretty strong stickler, considering the bizarre series of events that closes out episode six.

I mean, don't get me wrong. That particular cliffhanger is well built up to. We're shown all of the relevant foreshadowing ahead of time. The main part that's missing is who contrived the situation that required Lin to use such a painstakingly specific skill in order to "solve" it. And more importantly why. While "The King Loves" may be great at looking dramatic, its urgency is hobbled by how every character action just begs more increrasingly complicated questions.

[HanCinema’s Drama Review] “Duel” Episode 15

The penultimate episode of "Duel" is filled with suspense, regret and hopelessness as Mi-rae's and therefore the twins' and Soo-yeon's lives are in danger. Seong-hoon is having a breakdown and is therefore unpredictable whilePark San-yeong will stop at nothing to succeed. Sadly for him, his rivals are equally tenacious and the time has come for the most risky move from Deuk-cheon and Jo-hye yet.

Things are not looking well for Soo-yeon (Lee Na-yoon), but I do I wish the drama had made her fate a bit bigger a source of suspense, because the science is unclear. Logically, her body is beyond repair and although we know physical injury can be miraculously healed through Mi-rae (Seo Eun-su), we have not been given enough information for Soo-yeon. Then again, I do not believe the drama would kill a child during its conclusion.

[Orion’s Drama News] Man-Holing It Up

Dramaland is back to firing on all cylinders as new dramas are being announced and upcoming ones ramp up their promotional efforts. This week I take a little look at the surprisingly funny "Live Up to Your Name", I share my Ori-feels over "Mystery Queen 2" and also a few thoughts on my upcoming dramas. Here be manholes and hopes for a fun second half of my summer.

Comedy is definitely not what I associated with "Live Up to Your Name" upon announcement, but it looks like that is at least what the production wants us to expect. Going by Dramaland standards, to me this means that it will be a few episodes before everyone starts crying and dying, but it makes for an enjoyable introduction nonetheless. The two leading characters clash in new stills while the second teaser is quite adorable in a silly way. I hope the drama will be a fun one.

The time has come to once again tap into our unlimited reserves of hate for the corrupt rich as "Falsify" brings more revenge on the Korean drama table. This time around the struggle involves the world of journalism; a welcome twist to the usual business- and law-related takes. Let me guide you through my current thoughts.

Han Moo-yeong (Namgoong Min) is a reporter who uses his own methods in order to reveal the truth about the death of a loved one. When the law no longer supports justice and the press hides the truth, the only measures that work exist outside of the norm.
