[Funcurve Review] "Missing 9"

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.

[Funcurve Review] "Night Light"

"Night Light" is a melodrama that attempts to shows us how people, when desperate, can change both their values and goals. Our heroines come from two entirely different backgrounds, yet share the same ambitions driven by different motivations. Lee Se-jin (UEE) works two part-time jobs to make ends meet and eager to turn her life around. While her polar opposite, Seo I-kyeong (Lee Yo-won), is rich and powerful, filled with endless greed. The two leading ladies begin to work together and we quickly see why it's never a good idea to mix personal life with business and the consequence when you do.

[Funcurve Review] "Solomon's Perjury"

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.

Review: Missing – A Film Exploring Motherhood, Loss, And Struggles Of Social Outcasts

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.

[MV & Album Review] TEEN TOP - 'High Five / Love Is'

TEEN TOP comes back as a quintet to give their fans a 'High Five.' Joe.L's departure was an emotional affair for the band, but they pulled it together for a 2017 comeback. Not only that, but they offer up 11 tracks for your perusal. 

"Origin," like 99% of intro tunes, has echoes of the title track. Specifically Niel's falsetto. The rest is some odd electronic mashup that I'm guessing was meant to sound somewhat romantic. It's okay as intro tracks go, but hardly the highlight of the album.
