On November 15th at 11:00 AM at Apgujeong CGV the press conference for "Steel Rain" opened up. The movie's an action blockbuster primed for official release on December 20th- a bit far off to think about but just the right time for the advertising push to start, since "Steel Rain" will be competing with "Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds" for the always lucrative end-of-year market going into Christmas and New Years. Directed by Yang Woo-seok, the director of "The Attorney" from a few years back, "Steel Rain" is based on his own popular webcomic of the same title and stars Jung Woo-sung and Kwak Do-won as intelligence officers in North Korea and South Korea respectively who must work together to avert a massive crisis in the wake of a North Korean coup d'état...More

I'm having trouble picking a favorite, but perhaps that's the point. Which probably-evil man do I look forward to more? These are the questions I ask myself on a daily basis when it comes to dramas...More
"Extension" is a dreaded word among drama fans, but it's here and it has happened to a series I am covering and which I like, so I thought I would express my thoughts on it. As much as I fear it, I have to say that "Black" is the rare type of series which can accommodate it. I won't be giving out any spoilers here, but "Black is one wild ride...More
