[First Impression] Police University


I realized not so long ago that more and more of my so-called "reviews" are rather musings, throwing theories here and there, based rather on personal feelings than any notebook of cinematography/screenwriting/whatever craft. If I like it, then I like it and may be the only person liking it.
I am probably the only person liking this drama then.

Clouds


I thought since I post some clouds on Twitter, and even more I don't post, maybe writing something and posting pictures of clouds would be a good interval in out nightmarish reality. 
 
One thing needs to be explained first - I am a TERRIBLE photographer. I just click on the button and that's it.

[First Impression] On The Verge of Insanity


I understand this might not be everyone's cup of tea, because it tells the story of workers trying to survive during mass layoffs and uncertainty because of their job. As side stories, this drama adds other social issues that we usually don't like to think about.

Saturday Poetry Corner 62: The Rising of the Storm

 
Since we've been having a season of storms, a poem that in its rhythm builds the anticipation, the winds rising and yet some steadiness in how the storm comes. But the effects of this one are different. 
Of course, symbolic reading of the poem might give quite a different results than just a regular storm.  The poem is by Paul Laurence Dunbar who already made the appearance on this blog.

Saturday Poetry Corner 61: Eurydice


In today's Poetry Corner, a poet who often signed her works as H.D. gave voice to Eurydice, the silent and passive recipient of action, never a performer.

[First Impression] Bossam - Steal The Fate

Since there is an unwritten rule that I need to have a sageuk among the pile of dramas I'm watching, this half of the year it's Bossam's turn to entertain. Although 'entertain' might be the wrong word for any historical that isn't explicit comedy (like Detective K).

[A Very Serious Not-A-Review] Dark Hole


 
Oh ye of little faith who dropped this drama somewhere along the way! How could you NOT appreciate this intricately symbolic, and allegoric, and allergic show? My mind is completely numb blown away just by the sheer amount of issues this drama touched upon. 
With the subtlety of a water buffalo.

[Not A Drama Review] Hello? Me! ... Oh Damn

This, as the title suggests, will not be a review, but rather some loose ruminations on the drama I thought would be my background for doing things, but it turned out to be a really delightful journey.
