[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Lookout" Episodes 7 and 8

"Lookout" is barreling forward with Soo-jin at the lead. This grieving mother is brave, intelligent, and determined to bring her daughter's killer to justice. Her independence throws a wrench in the plans of Do-han and keeps everyone else on their toes. It's hard not to love such a driven heroine who keeps us guessing at how she will escape each new situation.

The focus of this pair of episodes is the search for Woo-sung, the man whose case incited cover ups and began Soo-jin's involvement with Chief Prosecutor Yoon and Chief Oh. Woo-sung is a lowlife, having taken the life of a man and then living free while an innocent young man took the fall for his crime. It is only Soo-jin's dogged hunt for him that brings him back to prison after Yoon releases him. In general, it is the chase and capture of Woo-sung that drives the episode, shows off how amazing Lee Si-young is at being a badass woman, and allows for Team Justice (Soo-jin, Bo-mi, and Kyeong-soo) to really get to know each other and reveal some of their stories to us. Mostly it is Bo-mi, the closeted woman who monitors the CCTV feeds of the city, who reveals herself to us. A cranky nay-sayer and the primary person who thinks Soo-jin should strickly follow their Leader's orders, Bo-mi has a trauma that keeps her shut up 100% of the time. She alludes to it when she decides to go against their Leader's orders and help Soo-jin find and apprehend Woo-sung, who kidnapped his daughter to get revenge on his ex-wife. She mentions not wanting any other children to live in fear. Both she and Kyeong-soo have backstories that I want to unearth.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Lookout" Episodes 9 and 10

Do-han has a lot to take care of in this pair of episodes of "Lookout". Soo-ji's headstrong influence is powerful enough to convince even the skeptical Bo-mi that what's right needs to be done. This pits our justice fighters directly against Chief Prosecutor Yoon who is wily enough to be a worthy opponent.

Do-han manipulated Chief Oh who is discarded by Chief Prosecutor Yoon with very little fanfare. Yoon covered up all of Oh's wrongdoing, a show of his power. Now Do-han is taken in by Yoon who believes Do-han's vows of loyalty. This new role has Do-han working hard to maintain his smarmy persona as well as his role as Leader. Until now, we've understood his motivations, but he's been hard to like. But when we see him tearfully empathize with Soo-jin in secret, he becomes a human; a very, very fallible human. My hope is that he will reveal himself to the justice fighters and that they will all actively work together. It would be good for him to have people on which he can rely.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "My Sassy Girl" Episodes 11-12

It was only with these episodes that I noticed that the parents of the lead characters are also the principles in the related royal conspiracy plotline, and the parallels are noteworthy. King Huizong, like Princess Hyeomhyeong, is oblivious to the threat facing the royal family. Gi-joon, like Da-yeon, is very good at seeming nice and helpful when in fact his every action is mean-spirited and destructive. Pil-yeong (played by Jo Hee-bong), like Woo, is a smart guy with a good reputation who is struggling to figure out how deep this rabbit hole goes.

[Drama Review] 'My Sassy Girl' - Episodes 9 & 10

Let's start this review off with the true main character of this drama...

The identity of the mysterious man under the tree, Min Yoo Hwan, has been revealed! Yes, there was a bit of guesswork for viewers to mull over while trying to associating the jade ring with a piece of Princess Hyemyung's (played by Oh Yeon Seo) mother and with a former lover, but fortunately, we didn't have to wait long for the answer. Min Yoo Hwan is a former palace official who has been searching the whereabouts of Hyemyung's mother, the former queen! According to Min Yoo Hwan, the former queen is alive. However, it's been 3 years since Min Yoo Hwan first showed up under the tree and gave Hyemyung the jade ring, something precious which belonged to the former queen. It seems the mystery behind what truly happened to the former queen after being kicked out of the palace will have to wait until further in to the story…
