Final Review: Search: WWW

kooriyuki was saying several netizens were "disgruntled" over the romances of www, citing them as ruining a perfectly "realistic" workplace drama. Imo, I usually don't pay much attention to viewers who want their dramas "realistic", for the same reason why I refuse to watch dramas which are too politicky and stressful. Why would I want...

Justice – First Impression

Story in a Nutshell Lee Tae Kyung (Choi Jin Hyuk) is a lawyer who specifically defends the rich and powerful, which makes him appear corrupted as well.

Class of Lies – First Impression

Story in a Nutshell The opening was harrowing, as we see a high school girl being assaulted and stabbed. The scene then cuts to a law firm, which introduces us to our protagonist Ki Moo-hyuk (Yoon Kyun Sang), a glib-tongued lawyer who doesn't bat an eyelid at lying his way through to win a case...

Final Review: My Absolute Boyfriend

Since I have watched previous iterations (and even a 2D version) of Absolute, I sort of knew how the ending would turn out. My only anticipation of the ending would be whether the scriptwriters stick to the original (where the robot "dies") or re-write it to be a happier one. As it is, Absolute took... Continue Reading →

Drama Review – Nokdu Flower (SBS, 2019)

As I mentioned in one of my weekly roundup posts, I was genuinely upset the viewership ratings for Show was steadily decreasing since its premiere. The quality of production was great from beginning till end and it related a part of history that was particularly painful and I have to admit it got increasingly difficult... Continue Reading →

First Impression: Hotel Del Luna

Luna definitely has the charm of Master Sun -- that baroque-gothic feel, since both shows are written by the Hong sisters. Main cast: IU (from Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryo) as Jang Man-wol. She inherits (?) del Luna hotel from a god, Mago, owing to a life filled with hatred, revenge, and later regrets.Yeo Jin-goo... Continue Reading →

Search: WWW: Masculinity vs Femininity

I didn't fall in love with www immediately, cos the first 2eps with the background on internet responsibility vs. transparency were really heavy going. But once Ta-mi (or Tammy) decides that she has enough of Unicon and jumps ship to Barro, the fun really starts. I super love the dynamics of the two ladies --... Continue Reading →

First Impression: Watcher

Not too sure if I am continuing this one, the pacing is a bit slow for ep1, but the storyline has a quite a bit of potential. Main cast: Han Suk-kyu (from Romantic Dr, Teacher Kim) as Chief of Internal Affairs, Do Chi-kwang. He arrested Young-gun's dad on murder charge in his past as a... Continue Reading →
