    At the beginning of the 4th episode, Yi-jin is asked what he thinks will always remain the same, even if everything else changes. To which he replies: ‘I don’t believe anything stays the same forever.

    The story follows a newspaper editor and a secretary, who find…

    ‘This is London. Someone has died in every room in every building and on every street corner in the city.’

    Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho reminds me in a lot of ways of Satoshi Kon’s masterpiece Perfect Blue. Both of these movies blur the line between two realities to criticize a glorified era and lifestyle.

    Chung-hoon Chung’s 1960s London looks absolutely gorgeous. The city is filled with beautiful neon lights, you see people with vintage clothes coming out of…
