He asks Kim to look into UI to see if there’s any substance to this claim – which Kim eventually agrees to do. As Kim is distracted by several businessmen arriving, Jeong-Hwan makes his exit and slips away.
Sleeping in the PC Graveyard van, he and Yoon-Seok continue to look into the case together while the former refuses to trust anyone.
As they search the computers, the duo watch Kim heading back to the hotel and heading up to the 20th floor. Thanks to some ingenuity and “documentary posing” the duo manage to get in the system and check the CCTV footage.
What they find encourages Jeong-Hwan to head up himself to the 20th floor (which is still under construction apparently) to find out who he’s meeting there. It turns out Kim’s holding a private meeting with Edward Kim, confirming that the pair are working together.
A young boy, brought up by wolves, falls in love with Ma Zhai Xing, Lady Ma, the daughter of a general and lord of the city. Being mistaken as the killer of the emperor’s god brother, he was hunted down and driven off a cliff, where he is later found by military governor and warlord Chu Kui. Hearing about the amazing strength of this wolf boy, Chu Kui decides to adopt the boy naming him Chu You Wen. Chu Kui then proceeds to launch an ultimately successful coup, usurping the Tang monarch and installing himself as the first Emperor of the Yang Dynasty. The new emperor names Chu You Wen as a royal prince, Prince Bo.
Eight years later, Prince Bo meets his childhood sweetheart again when her family is killed in a massacre. Limited by the circumstances, Prince Bo refuses to acknowledge his identity as the wolf boy although he is still in love with her. Meanwhile, Lady Ma meets a wanderer named Ji Chong while trying to save a foreign princess and he falls in love with her. The two began building an intimate friendship and bond.
“Togo” (now playing on Disney+) is a smart, affectionately made tale about an underdog and his musher. “Smart” because it shows the dog as both a puppy who’s too small for mushing and then 12 years later as a proven leader, steering his sled master Seppala (Willem Dafoe) and other dogs on a journey to bring back a serum to their small Alaskan town of dying children. And the movie is affectionate because it has that sense of animal love that lets entire sequences rest on Togo ’s charms, but is by no means letting the dog do all the work. Director Ericson Core (previously of the “Point Break” remake) clearly cares about his animals, and his filmmaking, too.
The Silent Criminal (2020)
As soon as iQiyi, one of the most popular streaming portals, started promoting “The Silent Criminal,” I had a feeling that this show would be slightly bent towards the regular “Romance Wrapped in Bromance” genre. I was suffering from Chinese Bromance withdrawal symptoms after popular dramas “The Sleuth of Ming Dynasty” and “Winter Begonia” finished their run and was on the lookout for new promises. Although as a part of the Psychomilk Team, I get to review Boys’ Love dramas from all over the South East Asian Subcontinent, Chinese Bromance dramas have a certain charm that never fails to excite my senses. For me, this drama was a weird crossover between “The Untamed” and “The Sleuth of the Ming Dynasty” series.
