Circle: Two Worlds Connected, Ep 5-8: The Portrait Becomes Unambiguous

In its first four installments, Circle’s perplexing narrative format and potential deliberations of intriguing themes drew an incomplete, yet riveting image. While the series still makes use of a non-linear storytelling structure, this set of episodes turn the rough sketch drawn by the previous episodes into a more coherent picture. The semblance of a standard dystopian sci-fi plot structure emerges from this illustration: the Big Bad is unmasked, the characters who were supposed to be rooting for are made clear, and disjointed plot points are mostly outlined in.

Circle: Two Worlds Connected, Ep. 9-12: A Somewhat Prosaic Finale

Starting off, for the most part, Circles non-formulaic K-drama storytelling style worked well. The beginning and middle of the series created a feeling much akin to what I felt when I explored a dark expanse of the forest behind my house in the middle of the night as an elementary-schooler. At the time, I couldnt see where I was heading as I traversed the darkness, but the thrill of this uncertainty propelled me to keep going.

But, obviously, I didnt hope to meander around in the woods forever. At some time or another, I expected to be led out of the forest, perchance into the bright clearing from where I could see my house. This was another part of the forest expeditions appeal: I made the presumption that I had a safety net that there would be a clear and secure exit laid out for me. This made a small but substantial difference in my adventure, replacing what could have been a continuously mounting fear that Id never make it out alive, with a sense of excitement.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Circle" Episode 7

What was once a secret in "Circle" becomes common knowledge and what was once a fear comes closer to reality. In 2017, Woo-jin finds himself right in the center of Professor Han's operation and closer to danger the more he knows. In 2037, Joon-hyeok falters as he struggles with a dreadful possibility and Ho-soo's memories show him a different perspective.

Now that Professor Han's (Song Young-kyu) secret is known to Woo-jin (Yeo Jin-goo) the latter's future is starting to make more sense. Whether he wants to or not, Woo-jin will have to play along in order to be as close to his brother and in order to stay alive. I thought Han was just a crazy scientist, but perhaps he is a foil to Woo-jin, a man who experienced loss and found a twisted way to cope.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Circle" Episode 8

It is time to meet our much teased Human B Chairman in episode eight of "Circle" and their identity is one I did not expect. In 2017, Woo-jin is being blackmailed with Beom-gyoon's life and sets out to find his father's data. In 2037, a formidable foe steps into the light and closes in on Jeong-yeon.

There is a lot I was prepared for in this series, but Park Dong-geon (Han Sang-jin) as the Chairman was not included. It makes perfect sense now, as engaging his enemy is the only way for him to get to Jeong-yeon (Gong Seung-yeon). Yet his 2037 introduction sold him as a sore loser wanting to take over Human B so well that the possibility of him already having it did not cross my mind. The writing and the actor's spot-on, slimy portrayal masked his true villainy and I love that.
