[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Tunnel - Drama" Episode 10

Our killers get increasingly frustrated in episode ten of "Tunnel - Drama", as the only person on the side of the law who can understand their signatures is Jae-i. Aside from delivering a timeline and recap of the murders, the episode also presents our killers with some surprises. After a conflict with Gwang-ho, Jae-i makes a bold and very dangerous decision about her involvement in the case.

We now have a clearer image of who has been killed by each murderer and we also have a hinted connection, which should bring about some answers soon enough. If Mok Jin-woo (Kim Min-sang-I) has been using ink from the factory of Jeong Ho-yeong's (Heo Sung-tae) parents, then the two could have very well known each other. I do hope everyone's connection will be explored by the end, because I assume that time would have a good reason for bending like this.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "My Secret Romance" Episode 3

So even though we saw Yoo-mi fantasizing about meeting Jin-wook by chance again last episode, this time, Yoo-mi is doing everything she can to avoid the reality of the situation. Which makes sense. Let's recall that, three years ago, Jin-wook was kind of a jerk, and that they were both just a tad drunk. So it's easy to empathize with Yoo-mi viewing Jin-wook's dictatorial demands here as being part and parcel of a mean personality rather than an overbearing effort on his part to be cute.

And indeed, it would be a little remiss for us to completely ignore the power imbalance here. Jin-wook is Yoo-mi's boss, and his attempt to jump start a relationship with her here is textbook sexual harassment. For all that, it's hard to hate Jin-wook that much when we can see from his perspective that Yoo-mi was his one moment of genuine empathy. Unless we count the cat, who sadly does not feature here. I was kind of hoping the cat would be a regular character.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People" Episode 25

Increasingly I find myself thinking that the most logical interpretation of Gil-dong's character in "Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People" is that he's just a figment of King Yeonsangun's imagination, blown completely out of proportion. It's hard to think of any other reason why Gil-dong inexplicably leaves King Yeonsangun unharmed instead of just killing the guy outright. A figment of imagination, that I can understand going into long-winded speeches. But a guy who's actually going to war against the state?

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Man to Man" Episode 1

"Man to Man" hits the ground running with beautiful cinematography, a charismatic lead, and enough humor to take the edge off the many action scenes. From directors Kim Sang-ho-I ("Arang and the Magistrate") and Lee Chang-min-I ("Birth of a Beauty", "Midas"), and writer, Kim Won-seok-II ("Descendants of the Sun", "The Queen's Classroom"), this newest jTBC drama definitely pulled out all the stops to grab our attention. It makes it worthy of the first Korean drama for which Nextflix has acquired exclusive rights.

[Drama Review] 'Man to Man' - Episode 2

This episode centers around Do Ha's attempts to get Seol Woo fired. She does this with the full cooperation of the actor, as he's not eager to have someone looking out for his best interests, either. But he wants it done quietly, and if Seol Woo leaves on his own it would look even better.  So she gives him an unorthodox job interview and tries to make him look bad. She fires him near the end, but Seol Woo climbs in a car and tries to save Woon Gwang when he hurtles out of control in a sabotaged vehicle...
