[HanCinema"s Drama Review] "The King"s Face" Episode 14

Via
[HanCinema

War has made “The King”s Face” much more interesting. The characters in this seem more like cardboard cutouts than people. They have goals and go through the motions, but rarely do we see the motivating through processes or emotions behind the action. Crown Prince Gwanghae”s story is riveting in its natural form and that gives this story more weight than the fictionalized plot.

The life is leaving “The King”s Face” despite the intrigue of war and the heroics of Gwanghae. Guest actors who portray the Ming and the Japanese present caricatures of real people. They are merely evil to be evil rather than believing in their cause, or even in their actions. King Seonjo is merely a jealous man who throws tantrums because we cannot see the insecure though processes behind his actions. The show occasionally throws the viewers a pittance in the form of a voice over, but it isn”t enough. It is also a waste of Lee Sung-jae who I am quite bored of in this role. It is not only Lee, but all of the main cast. They seem to struggle to be convincing, which reflects more on the production than their acting. The cast as a whole boasts and expansive, high quality body of work that has not seemed to help them in making this drama hit home.

[HanCinema

In it”s last episodes “The King”s Face” has curled into a complex, layered show that finally holds genuine tensions that do not feel contrived. Sixteen years have passed since Gwanghae became the Crown Prince and the warring factions in the government have a lot of fodder for battle.

A strong point of the episode was the fact that it brought Ga-hee”s actions full circle. In the first episode she says that traitors should be punished, and the dialogue plus the images on screen referenced that the traitor was Gwanghae, the man she supposedly loved. The same scene appears in this episode and the reference was indeed correct, Gwanghae is the traitor to which she refers, however, we now know she does it for his own sake. Politics and love have become so twisted over time that the only way she can protect Gwanghae is to completely denounce him. Her story is a sad one, but it is also satisfying. Despite all she remained loyal, and loyalty is a winner in storylines, especially ones that include star-crossed lovers like Ga-hee and Gwanghae.

SPY Episodes 13-16: The Ties That Bind Written by Camiele On March 17, 2015

In a lot of ways, a good show always leaves you a little something to nibble on as it ends. When done correctly, the viewer should be more than satisfied with its turnout. SPY may have earned its ending, but the moments leading up to it were… interesting, to say the least.

Episode 13 revealed no one in this show can be trusted. SPY has a similar pattern of runaround as Three Days—just as you believe you’ve discovered all the dirty dealers in the show, a look around the corner reveals someone else plotting and scheming.

Perhaps there can be no better distraction from one’s schoolbooks than when an unfamiliar face of a bona fide heartbreaker walks in. He’s new, he’s a looker, and he’s mysterious. And he’s got our attention. Such is the case with Ji Soo.

You think it’s gonna be another regular, blase week watching your usual K-dramas – but then this kid just blindsides you. And then a certain guttural, low register cuts through the air – just where the heck did Ji Soo come from?

Even if you’re not a “Running Man” fan, chances are that you’ve still heard of the infamous “Monday Couple.” In the early days of the show, relative newcomer Gary seemed almost in awe of beautiful actress Song Ji Hyo. It was in episode 10 that the two stars were finally alone for the first time. Fans immediately loved their sweet, shy interaction during that episode. Soon, fellow cast member Haha made an observation that they appeared close during filming each Monday. Just a few episodes later, it seemed their friendship was solidified when Song Ji Hyo remarked, “On Mondays, I have a man.”
