Seeing Yoo Ji-tae and Woo Do-hwan together is a particular joy as their emotive styles are mirror images...More

For the opener in this season's drama specials, KBS is playing it safe with "Drama Special - If We Are Seasons", a fairly standard no-frills nostalgic high school melodrama about Hae-rim (played by Chae Soo-bin) and the cute boys in her life- long-term friend Gi-seok (played by Jang Dong-yoon), and recent transfer student Dong-kyeong (played by Jin Young). The melodrama arrives in its own good time- but it is of little imminent concern with Drama Special - If We Are Seasons", which instead focuses on the love triangle until the melodrama finally pops up...More

In terms of explicit content, "Criminal Conspiracy" does not differ that much from "Seven Years-Journalism without Journalist", another documentary released earlier this year that also dealt with actions by the past two conservative South Korean governments to manipulate the news wings of MBC and KBS. There's more emphasis on personal interviews, and a broader outline emphasizing the sheer scope of actions Lee Myung-bak and Park Geun-hye tried to take. But really, the main difference is the seven months difference between when these movies were released...More

"Drama Special - Buzzcut Love" seems like it will be one of the saddest amongst all of the KBS drama specials. Tragedy really isn't my cup of tea, but if this is shaping up to be as strong as the other advertised specials, then I could watch a young woman meet her end - even if it ends with me crying...More
Billed as family-friendly, the "Drama Special - Bad Families" seems to be both family-friendly and a little crazy. Sounds like each family member has a lot of learning to do with a premise that boasts of cheating, a teenager moving in with her boyfriend, and a father who is too busy fighting for a cause to be home with his wife and child. Not usually my fair, but I find that some of the more tempestuous families have the most growing to do, and growing is what can make for good drama...More

The premise definitely gives Sohye's character a lot of room for growing...More
"Madame Jung's Last Week" just looks too cute. Ra Mi-ran has always been one of my favorite actresses, versatile, unrestrained, and capable of nuance that takes my breath away. Pair that king of mastery with burgeoning artist Shin Rin-ah, and I could almost care less what the premise of this drama special is. But that seems intriguing as well. The two team up to keep a sack of money they find one day. Sounds serendipitous to me...More

Secondary pairing, Lee Tae-hwan and Seo Eun-su look to be quite quite adorable as well with Lee Tae-hwan playing the requisite nice guy and Seo Eun-su working the one-sided love angle...More
