Series Review: Designated Survivor: 60 Days (60일, 지정생존자) (TV-2019) - South Korea

Designated Survivor: 60 Days (60일, 지정생존자) (TV-2019) - South Korea   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia) Season 1: 16 episodes (1 hour each)   Riding on the back of the American successful TV series “Designated Survivor”, we get a rehash of sorts with everything Korean, from White House to Blue House, from Middle East threats to North Korea to a story that rhymes with the Korean general public. To say that this series succeeded is an understatement as it manages to stay fresh, despite many elements being inspired by the original and at the same time...

TV Series Review: One Spring Night (TV-2019) - South Korea

One Spring Night (TV-2019) - South Korea   Original Netflix Series - 16 episodes (60 minutes each) Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Realistic romantic drama is what makes director Ahn Pan Suk and writer Kim Eun second collaboration with the similarly themed “Something in the Rain” a success. “One Spring Night” follows a similar route to portray real characters in their 30s thrown into situations and circumstances of life that are largely realistic as if the audience is witnessing their relationships and changes in real-life effect.

Chief of Staff (TV-2019) - South Korea   Season 1 - 10 episodes (1 hour each) Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   This is one of the best political drama to come out of Korea in recent years and like “House of Cards”, we see the rise of a well-meaning nobody to the climbing of a political ladder that often means disregarding all principles and means to achieve an end. The moral dilemma is what makes the series interesting and the dog eat dog politics means it fascinating viewing. On top of that we see collusion...

Film Review: Pegasus 飞驰人生 (2019) - China

Pegasus 飞驰人生 (2019) - China Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   The best parts of this inspiring sport drama is the likability of the characters that blends in 90s Hong Kong movies with Hollywood “Rocky” comeback charm to complete a rounded display of suitable emotions. Superstar blogger, car rally driver and filmmaker Han Han makes his third film and probably his most commercial yet. In turn we get a film that does not challenge conventions, but nor does it slip into the problematic patriotic category with a coming of age and against the odds sports drama in...
