[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Strong Woman Do Bong-soon"

People have different definitions about what constitutes a strong female character, but the creators of "Strong Woman Do Bong-soon" take on a literal spin in this romantic comedy setting. The series is packed with characters and different subplots as well as a murder mystery. At the end of the day, however, its problems are too big for its virtues to balance.

Do Bong-soon (Park Bo-young) is cursed with superhuman strength and struggles with her powers and her budding romance as her beau's bodyguard. Before getting to the story, I do have to put out a little warning. While the series has hints of feminism, it is in practice anything but. There is queer baiting, homophobia, ableism, normalizing of abuse and more. The drama is not socially conscious, so please bear that in mind going into it.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Circle" Episode 3

"Circle" is a rollercoaster ride that never stops and if this is a result of its short duration, thank goodness Dramaland decided to try it. In 2017, Woo-jin and Jeong-yeon clear up some misunderstandings and unearth a disturbing secret about the suicide victims. In 2037, Joon-hyeok's suspicions are proven right, leaving him and Ho-soo struggling with their past and identities.

Bluebird sounds very nice, but blue bug not so much. That being said, the headaches and nosebleeds in the 2017 victims have been pointing to a medical condition and so the bug is not such a huge surprise. Whether it is alien or synthetic, whether originally a weapon or a cure, it is clearly a precursor to the care chip. The big questions are, are the students willing participants to a clinical trial or not and is their death intended or a side-effect?
