During moments of utter despair, one's true character is often revealed. This is certainly the case for "Missing 9", a gripping disaster drama centering around a plane crash that leaves nine individuals, mostly celebrities, stranded on an uncharted island. The only known survivor at the beginning of the drama is Ra Bong-hee (Baek Jin-hee), the inexperienced and compassionate stylist of celebrity Seo Joon-oh (Jeong Kyeong-ho), and she suffers from temporary amnesia due to the trauma. However, the Special Investigation Commission, lead by Congresswoman Jo (Song Ok-sook), berates Bong-hee for her memory loss and intentionally covers up vital facts about the crash to minimize public outcry.

Based off of the same title Japanese novel, "Solomon's Perjury" has one of the most gripping mystery storylines of the year. The story begins with a series of interconnected deaths at an elite high school that have all the students rattled. Frustrated with the situation and the adults who're ignoring the facts, the students decide to hold their own school mock trial for this case. Each student has their own role to play, from the prosecutor to the defense attorney.
This is a drama brimming with youth, angst, and suspense. It's a story with a strong message highlighting one of the major faults of the social constructs in the educational sector - lobbying - along with other serious topics like school bullying and child abuse. At the beginning, I could never have imagined that the drama would go as far as it did with its emotional rollercoaster, and deliver on its promise in every single way.
Up until just recently, I hadnt heard anything about the 2016 film Missing whatsoever. I suppose it just wasnt promoted as well to international viewers as it could have been, which is quite unfortunate. For those who dont know much about the film, Ill give you the rundown.
The movie stars Uhm Ji Won as Lee Ji Sun, a working single mother whose busy life makes seeing her only daughter, Da Eun, near impossible. To help out with the child, she hires a young nanny going by the name Han Mae, played by Gong Hyo Jin. However, the situation suddenly turns dire when the nanny and daughter go missing just as Ji Sun is about to lose the battle for her daughters custody. Missing is an excellent mystery film that explores the psyche of a frantic mother who is willing to do anything to get her kid back.

Rapper and producer The Quiett is back with his first release of 2017, and he came armed with an arsenal of slickly produced jams and focused bars. His latest album, 'Millionaire Poetry,' is a lengthy but lush collection of songs that show how compatible hip-hop styles from across different decades can be.
Album opener "Prime Time" starts by dabbling in the abstract but quickly turns to boom-bap. The Quiett is using playful flows, at one point referencing 2Pac's "Hail Mary." The song makes for a solid introduction to the world of the album, even if it may be a bit monotonous. Follow up "Still Got Luv" has production that immediately recalls the golden era of gangster rap with a turn-of-the-century Dr. Dre sound. Tracks like this prove that the Quiett definitely offers something for hip-hop heads to appreciate. The closing verse really goes off, and it's cool to hear this style done so well during a time when trap and electronic hip-hop production dominates.
