[HanCinema's Drama Review] "High School - Love On" Episode 4 2014/08/08,
A lot of fluff this time around, but it's difficult to complain when the drama does such a good job being cute. Kim Sae-ron in particular- there's just so many things in the human world that Seul-gi finds inherently fascinating and apparently has not yet seen before. It seems absurd on first thought, but on further reflection, it makes sense. I can't remember for the life of me the last time I ever actually saw someone chewing bubble gum in real life or on television,...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "High School - Love On" Episode 2 2014/07/18,
Seong-yeol (played by Lee Sung-yeol ...again, original) is actually not that bad a person. This episode makes it very clear that while he's undergoing typical adolescent mood swings and rebelling against his parents while trying to go it on his own, Seong-yeol does have some clear moral standards. Or at the very least, he's conscious that he should have moral standards, and won't just remain in the same situation indefinitely doing nothing,...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Mourning Grave" 2014/06/27,
In-soo (played by Kang Ha-neul), try as he might, just can't get used to ghosts freaking him out on a regular basis. His attitude starts shifting when he meets a new one played by Kim So-eun. She's friendly, playful, not terrifying, and best of all, has absolutely no involvement in the greater social system of his new school, which quickly manages to get under In-soo's skin. In-soo is greatly relaxed by the fact that he doesn't have to perform around her, or worry about his attitude being taken the wrong way. But his interactions with the ghost inevitably lead to his getting involved in a more standard horror movie plot, one that meets an unsettling, if relatively predictable end,...More
