Korean Drama Bad Guys Episode 8 Recap

By in News posted Oct November 24th, 2014 No comments
By Dramabeans: We pick up right where we left off, with the Scarred Man revealing that the Hwayeondong serial killer is none other than Jung-moon himself. He didn’t believe it either at first, because who would be crazy enough to ask someone else to keep record of their crimes?But he did as he was told for the money, tailing Jung-moon without questioning why the latter chose his victims. And there was a pattern in Jung-moon’s movements: every Tuesday evening, he would follow his chosen targets into their houses and leave exactly one hour later, like clockwork. Six victims were found dead some hours later that way.“Did you see me kill those people yourself?” Jung-moon asks. Of course the Scarred Man didn’t, since he was both too much of a coward and wished to shed any responsibility of the murders.Assuming that Jung-moon killed those people he followed just because they were later found dead sounds like too much of a leap in Jung-moon’s mind (but… does it, Jung-moon?), but the Scarred Man has a counter-argument at the ready—why did Jung-moon return to the crime scenes then?Something about recalling Jung-moon’s last victim—that detective’s daughter—still frightens the Scarred Man to this day

[Drama Review] “Pinocchio” – Episode 4

Pinochhio - Episode 4
Titled "Romeo and Juliet," this episode grabbed our leads" usual family dynamic and took it apart. Dal Po and In Ha come to a point when they begin to realize that they"re not really uncle and niece, but rather people from different families, aspiring reporters with rivaling beliefs, and potential love interests. Awww yeahh.

As a fan of the William Shakespeare classic (Weird right? We exist), I get annoyed with loose "Romeo and Juliet" comparisons in pop culture very easily. The allusion kind of works in this episode, though, because as a title, it"s a nice reminder for the viewers that our two leads come from two families that should be "enemies" in a sense. In Ha is the daughter of the reporter whom Dal Po blames for destroying his once happy family

Pinocchio - Episode 3
The episodes keep improving as we get better acquainted with both our lovable main leads and their sad family dynamics.

This episode was a particularly emotional, heartbreaking one for me. I"m a sucker for parent-related issues, and when we"re shown how Dal Po and In Ha are denied the parental love they so desperately want, it strikes a chord within me.

This episode is titled "Snow Queen," and it appears that "Snow Queen" is none other than In Ha"s ice-cold mother, Cha Ok. I like how this episode was structured around Cha Ok--how it showed more of her work ethic, her interactions with her daughter, and how much of a powerful influence she is on both of our lead characters. While she can inspire or break In Ha"s will to become a reporter, she can fuel Dal Po to want to become a reporter himself in defiance of Cha Ok"s own work

Lee Je-hoon is about to be ruined.

On the eighteenth episode of the SBS drama "Secret Door", Lee Seon (Lee Je-hoon) was caught for hiding Seo Ji-dam (Yoon So-hee) in the palace.

Kim Sang-ro (Kim Ha-gyoon) smiled when he heard Seo Ji-dam was hiding in the palace. If Lee Seon"s plan of hiding his enemy"s daughter in the palace was revealed, it"d be the end of his political career.

Court lady Hye-kyeong realized what was going to happen and asked her father, Hong Bong-han (Kim Myeong-gook) for help. However, he became angry and questioned, "How did you get involved in this situation when the Noron are trying to bring down the Majesty? How could you stoop so low? Who made you this way?"

Lee Seon didn"t know what was going on; he was kind to Seo Ji-dam till the end

Interview: Kim Sang-kyeong sheds solemn side

By in News posted Oct November 17th, 2014 No comments

Since actor Kim Sang-kyeong debuted in 1998, he has built up a solemn image for himself by acting in serious films like "Memories of Murder" and "May 18" as well as the drama series "The Great King Sejong".However, the 43-year-old actor has unexpectedly attempted to take a goofier route lately. In the KBS weekend drama "This Is Family", which recently recorded an average viewership rating of 30 percent, Kim plays Tae-joo, a manager of a large company who is far from sharp. And in soon-to-be-released film "Dad for Rent", Kim plays libertine dad Tae-man, who has been supported by his wife for 10 years. No longer able to put up with him, his daughter makes him available for rent on an auction site so that he can cover fatherly duties for those who don"t have a dad.Having gone through a similar renaissance on both the small and silver screen, Kim said in a recent interview with the JoongAng Ilbo, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily, that he feels "a sense of freedom"

But Tae-soo recognizes a fellow assassin’s work when he sees one—an expertly-placed stab wound caused Pawnbroker Im to die from massive blood loss within seconds.The professional they’re dealing with is among the best of the best: a completely emotionless assassin, whose work leaves no trace of evidence, no unnecessary wounds, and lastly, no sense of guilt.Team Crazy Dogs heads back to HQ where Prosecutor Oh is already waiting for them. He’s delighted to meet everyone in person—Jung-moon in particular, to whom he says it’s been three years since they’ve last seen one another.

Highlights: “Pinocchio” Episode 1

The long-awaited Korean drama of the winter season has arrived! Not only is it Lee Jong Suk’s return to the small screen after playing genius surgeon in Doctor Stranger (although I much preferred “I Can Hear Your Voice“), but it’s also that of Park Shin Hye after the highly popular “The Heirs.” Side Note: Interestingly enough, it was Kim Woo Bin who had been proposed the lead role but, due to scheduling conflicts, was forced to decline. Who here would have preferred to see Kim Woo Bin and Park Shin Hye’s sizzling chemistry instead? I think this is a close call…

The first episode starts with Choi Dal Po (Lee Jong Suk) skipping school to make his big entry on a televised game show where he has to answer questions correctly against one of his classmates

Her in-laws, and her cheating husband, Kang Joon, are getting away with blood on their hands.

by Couch-kimchi:A few details were revealed, we learned more about Yeol-Moo past. We also met her Mom, who is most likely crazy from grief and we learned the reason Yeol-Moo dropped Dong Chi but we’ll need more to understand why she thinks he’s a murderer. Ratings for this drama are strong, beating outSecret Door and Tomorrow’s Cantabile to remain #1 in its time slot. I’m gonna make a wild guess that part of it is due to the power of Baek Jin Hee again.Those of you who watched Empress Ki with me will remember the Korean audience being very vocal in their adoration of this actress, to the point that the script was changed to extend her part. I’m sure Choi Jin Hyuk is loved as well but the very tiny Baek Jin Hee has become a mighty draw on TV when she’s paired with a great script. All those pieces are falling into place with this drama, at least for now

by Dramabeans:It’s a grand entrance for a gorgeous woman, whom we’ll come to know as SA-RA (Han Ye-seul), who walks down a street and turns heads left and right with her stunning appearance. Everywhere she goes she attracts admiring glances and drops jaws; she explains that she’s an actress who’s just come back to Korea after working in the U.S. This makes sense to everyone who sees her, and she gets the royal treatment.She gets her fortune told by a face reader, who is awed by the interesting combination of fates she holds in her hands (er, face): Not only is she an uncommon beauty, she also has the fortune of a military general and might even save the nation. That is, if she steers clear of her two pitfalls: the need to get involved in matters, and bad guys.Sa-ra starts to clue into the uneasy feeling that she’s being followed, and this is how we get our introduction to HAN TAE-HEE (Joo Sang-wook, whose combination of dorky and heo-dang antics I have really missed, and love to see back in action here)

Review episode 12 and 13 of “Greatest marriage”

By in News posted Oct November 5th, 2014 No comments
In this episode, I felt quite unsatisfied until I found out that the director's intention is ending the relationship between Tae-Yeon and Gi-Young. Myung- Yion maybe appeared so much on screen. I thought that Gi-Young appeared less than Myung-Yion. I hope that their appearnce on screen is equal.After Gi-Young comes back to the number one spot, she starts reading the out of date news. Their news room gets panic. Her action is always complained by her colleague. She is always doing what she wants. Outside, the women’s group cheers that Gi-Young is back while downstairs, the team is happy the boycott has ended. They watch the ratings, which jump up above 15% and celebrate, like they had anything to do with it. Pffttt, bunch of jerks. Even more hilarious, as soon as Eun Cha starts reading the news, the ratings nosedive below 5%

[First Impressions] “The Legendary Witch” Episode 1 and 2

By in News posted Oct October 28th, 2014 No comments

“The Legendary Witch” is a tale of four women who meet in prison. Shim Bok Nyeo (Go Doo Shim) is the leader and mistress of their cell, serving for life due to familicide by arson. She is a prison veteran of 30 years. Seo Mi O (Ha Yeon Soo) is a previous CF model and a mother, sentenced to two years for attempted murder. Son Poong Geum (Oh Hyun Kyung) is in prison for the third time for fraud and the self-proclaimed “sex symbol of Korea Women’s Penitentiary.” And the newbie of the group, Moon Soo In (Han Ji Hye), has been sentenced to two years for dereliction of duty and embezzlement.

However, it seems they have already had their lives entangled by a series of events one year ago. Cue flashback (a very long flashback—the end of episode 2 is still a flashback)

In a recent interview with the Chosun Ilbo, actress Park Si Yeon and actor Bae Soo Bin discussed their thoughts on marriage and single motherhood.

Both Park and Bae are new parents in real life

Sin Se-kyeong consumed a great amount of food.

On the fifth episode of the KBS 2TV drama "Blade Man", Son Se-dong (Sin Se-kyeong) accepted all the food Tae-hee"s (Han Eun-jeong) mother gave to her as she thought her daughter had returned.

Se-dong"s tummy bloated, as Tae-hee"s mother who had Alzheimer"s, fed her more and more food. Se-dong couldn"t bear to say no to a mother who thinks she"s her daughter, who in fact has passed away.

However, Joo Hong-bin (Lee Dong-wook) who watched her eat, said to her, "It was shocking and terrifying at the same time. Are you human? You looked like a bear, eating as much meat as you could".

Meanwhile, "Blade Man" is about a man whose body stuck out with sharp knives due to his painful past and a woman who turns him into a real human

Joseon Gunman, Episodes 15-22: Wrapping Up The Ends Written by Joyce On September 14, 2014

So Joseon Gunman finally comes to an end, after a two-episode extension. And the one question I asked myself at the end was, how many people died?

Let’s see — Hye-won died, Merchant Choi died, Ho-kyung died, Adminstrator Jung died, Kanemaru died, Sang-chu died. While such a bloodbath usually serve no purpose other than to make an impression on the audience, I appreciate that all these deaths had a narrative purpose and motivation for it.

For me, Hye-won’s death was just — oof — crushing to watch. Her character especially shined in the first portion of the drama, where she was an independent and confident woman, capable of making her own fate
