Breaking the 5 percent threshold with their first episode is a laudable feat for a cable network show like Criminal Minds.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Circle" Episode 1

"Circle" enters the drama game today and expectations are high for a genre so rarely loved by Korean film and television. The episode introduces both timelines, their characters and the two mysteries which will unfold through their adventures. These mysteries are instantly engaging, the characters easy to feel attachment to and the pop culture references and homages abundant. There is a lot to talk about, so here we go.

Before talking about the human and by far best element of the series, I have to say that I am surprised by how rich the world-building in "Circle" is. From the written to the mise-en-scne this is a series which makes its setting clear. This is especially crucial in 2037, because the creators face the challenge of presenting a foreign world. From the masks carried by Normal Earth inhabitants to the giant, narcissistic phallic buildings of Smart Earth, everything paints a clear image.
