W, Episodes 1-2: Blurring Truth with the Fiction of a Webtoon

20160721_seoulbeats_wW, Episodes 1-2: Blurring Truth alongside the Fiction of a WebtoonWritten through Laverne On July 23, 2016Lee Jong-suk returns to dramaland along Han Hyo-joo in a funny fablemystery close to two other people in parallel universes. Hyo-joo plays Oh Yeon-joo, a clinical resident whose father is the author of popular webtoon, W. This titular webtoon stars a tender man, Kang Chul (Lee Jong-suk), on his quest to discover his familys killer. The core of the drama happens when Yeon-joo is pulled into the webtoon, changingthe tale line and resulting in consequences for either one of them.

W is a fabricated frompublisher Song Jae-jung who also wrote time-bending dramas Nine and Queen In-hyuns Man. Jae-jungs ability and authentic plot shines in W as it expertly blends two realities. In this aspect, the script is helped by the directing and CGI the usage of this blend as a transition from Hyo-joos fact to Kang Chuls and back again.

This blending of art and reality is a gorgeousaggregate and permits the display to play with the constrictions of a webtoon. Every other example of here is when Yeon-joo, waiting to have a look at and re-enter her reality, is fast-forwarded two months whilst sitting on a bench. She realizes that during webtoons, there is continuously fourth dimension jumps to steer transparent of dragging out a story. In this case, Kang Chuls two month health facilityremain is speedy forwarded over to jump to his discharge. Two months could have passed for him, yet for Yeon-joo, it was oncea question of seconds.

Yeon-joos webtoon realizations aren't limited to this instance. In a later scene, she realizes that so as to come again to her reality, she wishes the webtoon bankruptcy to end, and webtoon chapters love tofinish on cliffhangers. This meta statementis pleasant because now nothandiest is it true, but it also applies to dramas as well, giving W a adorable sense of self-awareness.

20160721_seoulbeats_w_kimeuisangBut W isn't all light-hearted; there are dark moments that lift more questions than they answer. Yeon-joos father, Oh Sung-moo (Kim Eui-sung) is hiding an ominous secret that he refuses to divulge to his daughter, even after she gets sucked into the webtoon, AKA Kang Chuls reality. Its glaring that Sung-moo knows that his webtoon universe is alive but he'sdecided to kill off Kang Chul for unknown reasons.

In Sung-moos eyes, much to the detriment of his daughter, Kang Chul is his advent and thus, he can do whatever he wants; to Sung-moo, killing Kang Chul is not identical to murder. But the end of episode two hints that there's so a lot more going on here. Kang Chul rewrites the fate Sung-moo has drawn for him, much to Sung-moos astonishment and horror.

W has succeeded in growing a complex drama with parallel universes that can not be untangled from each and every other. And while lots of the first two episodes make it appearas though only Yeon-joos reality can have an effect on Kang Chuls, the finishing of episode two suggests that the opposite is possible, leading to a plethora of possibilities. Compounded with robustperforming from Han Hyo-joo and Lee Jong-suk, W is a drama to stay an eye on.

Girl Who Can See Smells Episodes 912: Truth Leads to Many Troubles

Girl Who Can See Smells Episodes 912: Truth Leads to Many Troubles

seoulbeats_20150511_girlwhocanseesmells Girl Who Can See Smells Episodes 9–12: Truth Leads to Many Troubles Written by Morgan On May 12, 2015 So we’re back with episodes 9 – 12 of Girl Who Can See Smells. While there were no new victims this week, there was enough tension to last for a lifetime with more and more reveals occurring.

We can’t go any further without addressing the elephant in the room. Cho-rim and Moo-gak have finally got together! Their get together wasn’t drama laden or intense, even though they tried to make it with Cho-rim running away from Moo-gak a few times; it was natural and practically effortless. These two make all the teasing, bullying and confusion of other drama couples look ridiculous and most of their relationship is teasing! Their interactions breathe fresh air into this plot as I have said many times before. As they kiss, hug, tease and flirt across our screens, what is there not to love about these two together? It is so hard just to pick one great scene between these two because each scene is as engaging as the next. As they seemed to be right on track, things became less stable as more secrets were unearthed.

There are so many secrets in this show that have been revealed which have shocked and thrilled viewers. However, finally one of the biggest ones was revealed to the characters. In the past few episodes, detective Yeom-mi, Moo Gak and even Cho-rim found out that Cho-rim is in fact the lost witness, Choi Eun-seol. The ballets are still out on Chef Jae-hee finding out as the show left us on another nail biting cliffhanger at the end of episode 12. However, this discovery ushers in a whole new brand of conflict for our characters with it impacting relationships across the board.

Cho-rim was the hardest hit by this fact, of course. She seemed to stay levelheaded, staying true to herself when she started to regain her memories and it was revealed that her dad was not her real dad. However, when it was accidentally revealed she was the witness in the barcode killer case, her bright and confident demeanor took a hit. She instantly felt guilty that Moo-gak’s sister was killed instead of her and broke up with Moo-gak. Cue the tears, flashbacks and dramatic ballad to indicate that the scene was sad. While their breakup was a little too dramatic for my taste, the shows lighthearted and funny tone decreased for an episode as the two were caught up in the doom and gloom of being single. Their cute interactions were surely missed, though we had nothing to worry about for too long.

Choi Moo-gak’s progression from the cold and focused detective has become more pronounced as the show continues. His brash and risky actions, we saw at the start, have decreased, even though he did have a bit of a relapse when he was kicked off the detective team. Instead, he has started to think about his actions and problems to come up with the best conclusion. For instance, when he found out Cho-rim was the witness, he took time out to figure out how he felt about it. His character has become even more interesting to watch, especially when he is messing around with Cho-rim. Yoo-chun’s expressions make this character; bright and mischievous really suits him better then stoic and closed off. While this character has developed incredibly well, some characters are still stagnate.

Cho-rim’s impulsive and stubborn character continues to get her into trouble and I am convinced she can get no more stupid than when she did in episode 11. She gets a text from her father informing her that he is drunk and needs to be picked up from a certain addressan address she has been to before like at least five times, one that is the address of the prime suspect of the serial killer investigation that she was warned not to interact with, one of a person that her father shouldn’t even know.

Nothing suspicious there, of course, so she goes without any thought to her safety and almost becomes the next victim. Though her identity is still hidden from Chef Jae-hee as he cannot recognize faces, she shows a blatant disregard for her life that I didnt even think was possible. Unfortunately, character tropes like these seem to be a staple in the crime thriller genre and this has to be accepted. However, the sheer obviousness of the danger ahead to everyone but Cho-rim really annoyed me to no end. I have no doubt that this is going to continue in the future too, especially with her becoming the biggest pawn in the investigation at her own request.

Frustration seems to be a staple trait for me as a viewer. Even though I don’t want to get really picky with this drama as overall it is thrilling and entertaining to watch, I’ve had enough, specifically with police incompetence. For instance, they have one witness that is the main key to catching the murderer and they do what? Send her back to the house where she lives with her father while her father has to hide out somewhere else, a father whose daughter the murderer knows is the witness. There is a possibility that they hadn’t figured this out yet, but isn’t it their job as police officers to think of every possibility? This is something that has been ongoing from episode one of this drama and is frustrating to watch. It is essentially what is preventing me from liking the detective team as I am still waiting for them to develop. Though them embracing Moo-gak as a colleague and a friend is the only thing making me hold onto that hope of possibly liking them.

There is one character that has started to stand out in the past few episodes, finally, which of course is our stern detective Yeom-mi. Once the straightforward and to the book stereotype of a detective, we have gotten to see many different sides of her character this time round. She becomes friendly and warm when helping Cho-rim by profiling the person in her memory, manipulative when she refused to tell her and risky when she allowed Moo-gak to continue as part of the investigation despite having a link to one of the victims. We are starting to see her grasp the edges of a complex and intriguing character; you never know what she is going to do next. If this continues as the drama continues, she might become one of my favorite characters in this show. What can I say? I like strong female characters.

With only four more episodes to go and Cho-rim possibly being caught by Chef Jae-hee in the last cliffhanger ending, it’s the countdown to the final stand off. Moo-gak and Jae-hee have already made their chilling statements to each other so you can be sure it’s going to be thrilling. Will you be watching?

The Just right Wife, Episodes 3-4: More Intrigue and Drama

The Just right Wife, Episodes 3-4: More Intrigue and Drama

20160720_seoulbeats_thegoodwifeThe great Wife, Episodes 3-4: More Intrigue and DramaWritten by capability of Laverne On July 21, 201620160720_seoulbeats_thegoodwife_yoojitaeDebuting to a robust start, The Just right Wife persevered its impressive starting alongside episodes 3 and four. Those episodes printed the intricacy of relationships among characters and started to set the level for even more intrigue and drama.

Despite being a remake, the Korean edition of The great Wife is unheard of in its own way. But, having watched the usual show, its not easyno longer to make comparisons at times. The maximum important difference between the 2presentations is the nature of Lee Tae-joon (Peter Florrick) played by Yoo Ji-tae.

In the original series, Peter Florrick used to beat all times a personality that become hard to pin down. Was he corrupt? Or was he a wrongly accused guy who made a mistake? The Smart Wife played with perceptions all through its seven seasons, resulting incases where Peter did have interaction in corrupt habit and times where he was either now not corrupt or it was unclear. In episodes one and two, the Korean version played this ambiguity very well; it was not transparent whether Tae-joon had damaged the law or not. Yet in episodes three and four, his deficientpossible choicesget started to be revealed.

And whilst information technology was expected that Tae-joon would threaten Amber after she contacted his wife, Kim Hye-kyung, the scene of Tae-joon kidnapping Amber and perilous her was much darker than anticipated. Yoo Ji-tae plays Tae-joon perfectly with a quiet intensity that doesnt permitaudience to take their eyes off of him. Hes manifestly not the perfect guy, despite his justification that he's doing the complete thingto give coverage to his family, but hes delightful to watch.

20160720_seoulbeats_thegoodwife_jeondoyeonThis version of The Brilliant Wife turns out to be taking a more clean cut characterization of Tae-joon than the original, in all probabilityso as to quicken the speed of the show; after all, seven seasons should exist condensed into 16 episodes.

But a quicker pace isnt necessarily a bad thing. Many American displays suffer mid-season from filler episodes or drawn out plot lines that bore viewers. By cutting out extraneous felony cases, The Nice Wife gets to hand pick out the most applicable ones, which is what leads Hye-kyung to protect Joong-wons father, SEO Jae-moon (a Howard Stern stand-in). Jae-moons brash personality contrasts the ones of the lawyers at the company and yields intriguing interactions between them.

Jae-moons distaste for Joong-won appears to stem from his belief of his son as a legal professional who will do anything else to win. But the apple doesnt fall some distance from the tree as Jae-moon himself plays games with his legal case to keep away from revealing that he is affected by Alzheimers. Despite the reality that Jae-moon seems to be long past from the display for now, it can be great if The Good Wife additional explored this odd father-son dynamic.

And talking of dysfunctional relationships, Hye-kyungs involvement in Prosecutor Sang-ils messy divorce ends up inextraheadaches in her life. Sang-il believes that Hye-kyung is focused on him when in reality, it's miles his wifes shrewdness that leads her to invite for Hye-kyung as her lawyer.

20160720_seoulbeats_thegoodwifeI enjoyed the expose that the wife knew what she was doing all along and Hye-kyungs willingness to permit the wife to slide Hye-kyung inside of information. These little moments give Hye-kyung intensity and give viewers glimpses of Hye-kyungs inner struggles.

An overt scene of Hye-kyungs inner struggles happens during her testimony for her husbands bail. Finally, Hye-kyung voices her conflicting emotions about her husband. She either hates him and loves him; she both needsto stick with him and divorce him. This outburst, while telling, also looked as though it wouldtrace at Hye-kyungs strategic side. She knows the prosecutor is pushing her, but she turns the tables on him, permitting her feelings to surface but still emerging above the prosecutors prodding, gambling the game. The nuances of Hye-kyung, supported by Jeon Do-yeons fantastic acting, are what make The Good Wife come alive and stay viewers guessing.

Now that Tae-joon is back home, Im excited to look what drama his arrival will cause. We know he wont prevent his machinations, but what tricks does he have up his sleeve? And what have an effect on volition he have on Hye-kyungs budding profession and sense of independence? Whatever happens, these two actors are forces to be reckoned with and this must lead to a couple very entertaining episodes of The Good Wife.
