I was a unnerved by how the opening scene of "Welcome to Dongmakgol" went out of its way to make certain North Koreans look pettily evil. But over time, I had to withdraw this impression as certain Americans in this Korean War era historical film are less pettily evil, but still commit evil acts all the same. Therein lies the fundamental absurdity that defines the film. The characters in "Welcome to Dongmakgol" all want to do evil, yet often have to be talked into it...More
The first "Public Enemy" movie is a genuine classic of South Korean film.

His apt and comical arc is that he learns how to do paperwork because some jerks are evil enough that it's worth the effort...More
Following Shin Shang-ok's career through the 50s and 60s is both a pleasure and a nuisance. Pleasure because the progress in production values and cinematic language is evident with every film, and nuisance because with the exception of "The Flower in Hell", his movies followed the same melodramatic path, with similar stories about families destroyed by financial issues and not being able to follow the rapid pace of the country's economic progress. This concept is heightened even further by the fact that the same actors seem to appear in all his movies, with Choi Eun-hee and Kim Seung-ho-I in particularly being all over the place. These "rules" also apply to "A Sister's Garden"...More

A villain is an indispensable main character in the drama. This is because it is considered the best character to attract viewers' attention while creating dramatic tension. However, it is not easy to gain viewers' sympathy by securing probability as a villain character without supportive acting skills. Moreover, the recent trend of drama production is to revive the genre characteristics that have become more distinct than in the past, so actors who will play the villain properly have become important. In this regard, Kim Sung-oh of tvN's "L.U.C.A. : The Beginning", Uhm Ki-joon of SBS' "The Penthouse 2" and Ahn Jae-wook of tvN's "Mouse" deserve to be called the "Kings of Evil" who reveal their presence with different levels of viciousness.
