Sometimes it seems like if you’ve seen one corruption drama, you’ve seen them all but I can’t help but be left on the edge of my seat whenever I watch Forest of Secrets. If you haven’t been watching this drama, I strongly encourage it as it feels timely but I also feel like the show allows the viewers to come to their own conclusions about the characters guilt or innocence.
Adding to my heavy load of K-Dramas that I’m currently watching, Forest of Secrets is another drama that I’ve been looking forward to. Yes, the cast is made up of veteran actors but the story somehow feels very timely as it deals with political corruption.
IN THE OLYMPIC SPIRIT
The movie follows the 1991 International Table Tennis Championships in Chiba, Japan. It was the first time since the Korean War that North Korea and South Korea created a unified team. South Korean Hyun Jung Hwa (Ha Ji Won) and North Korean Rhee Boon Hee (Bae Doo Na) must put aside their differences in order to beat the frontrunner, China, and win the gold for their team.
