[HanCinema’s Drama Review] “Mystery Queen”

If you feel burned out by the influx of brooding detectives and copious amounts of violence that Korean drama has been experiencing recently, "Mystery Queen" might just be the break you need. The series will not take you too far from that crime solving sweet-spot and a bickering, yet perfectly compatible duo of crime fighters handling neighborhood villains will give you the fun and variety the genre sometimes lacks.

"Mystery Queen" is a unique type of mystery comedy series and one of the show's biggest strengths is managing to maintain its genres throughout. The series has a light tone despite the often dire subject matter and this gives its world and characters consistency. The chemistry of its two leads is another great plus and arguably the core of what makes their adventures so enjoyable. The supporting cast is equally crucial in making the world of "Mystery Queen" engaging.

Tiger JK's Experience with Racism and Racism in the Entertainment industry

K-POP is a genre that has quickly come to spread internationally, wow-ing fans everywhere through raw talent. However, an issue that is never really discussed regarding this genre is the racism that is involved.

Rap and hip-hop originated through African American efforts to share the violence and racism they experienced within America. Eventually, hip-hop and rap became a vessel for people to channel their expression and emotion regarding issues like violence, war, trauma, gang culture, sexism, and racism.

The question must have really affected her as Choo Sarang went to find her dad Choo Sung Hoon and cried in his arms. Seeing this, Yano Shiho said, "Why? Why do they only love each other? I'm always alone. I guess it's still okay."

BTS and the cast of the show battled it out through a series of quizzes in which every time a team gets the answer correct, a member of the losing team would have to join the winners of that round. However, it wasn't much of a competition as BTS fell behind by a large margin. 

In the clip included above, they lost another round and comedian Lee Soo Geun joked, "Think carefully because this time around it's a chance for one of you guys to survive." As soon as he said this, the members of BTS immediately stood up and begged to let them join the winning team instead of the person beside them.

Musical adaption “Hero – 2018” to hit cinema theaters next year

"Hero - 2018" is a film adaptation of the famous musical "Hero" about the story of independence activist An Jung-geun. He assassinated Ito Hirobumi in 1909 and was subsequently imprisioned and executed. With the understandable wave of nationalistic movies rolling in that revolve around Korean independence, this will fit right into the fabric of 2018.

This is a film adaptation of the musical 'Hero' that deals with the life of Ahn Jung-geun.

Release date in Korea : 2017

[MV & Album Review] ODD EYE CIRCLE [LOONA] – ‘Mix & Match’

ODD EYE CIRCLE – MIXMATCH

LOONA's second subunit ODD EYE CIRCLE has just dropped their first ever mini-album. The trio consists of Choerry, JinSoul, and Kim Lip. Their new EP 'MixMatch' has five fresh tracks, including the title track "Girl Front." This group is one you should keep your eye on and I mean that literally as every member is stunning.

"ODD" is the intro track, and it does its job, no more no less. It's an okay instrumental but does little to set the tone for the rest of the EP.
