[HanCinema's Drama Preview] "Tunnel - Drama" 2017/03/18,
Dramaland has been meticulously churning out time travel and crime dramas lately so "Tunnel - Drama" is nothing revolutionary. At the same time, the idea of a detective from the past dealing with modern society after being time-thrown into it might just give this one a little fresh edge.
Detective Park Gwang-ho (Choi Jin-hyuk) travels thirty years into the future while in pursuit of a serial killer. In the present, he will have to work with detective Kim Seon-jae (Yoon Hyun-min) and criminal psychologist Sin Jae-i (Lee Yoo-young) in order to reach his goal,...More
[HanCinema's Film Review] "Mr. Cowper" and "The Best Director" and "Where Mermaids Go" 2016/08/13,
So apparently there was this doctor named William Cowper for whom several important parts of the human anatomy are named- principally the Cowper glands, and also Cowper's fluid, which is pre-ejaculate fluid. Why someone would want to name pre-ejaculate fluid after themselves is quite beyond me. Anyway, In-ae (played by Lee You-young) is convinced that she's pregnant. Her boyfriend Min-goo (played by Jang Won-hyeong) is not taking the situation seriously, in part due to his childish personality, but also because Cowper's fluid tends to have a very low sperm count,...More

[HanCinema's Film Review] "Late Spring" 2014/12/13,

The man simply doesn't have much to look forward to anymore.
