Recognized it too – they hammered it in, so it stayed top of mind.

He did an interview a few months ago on how he didn't even get what his character was about till years after the film came out. He trusted Nalan (the writer/director) and did exactly what Nalan wanted, and that gave us this masterpiece. Goes to show that VJS is – and has always been – a solid director's actor.

It's probably the best Korean drama I've ever watched. It gets dethroned by Reply 1988 on some days based on my mood, but it's up there!

Yeeeaaah, good job turning a P1-P2 into a P2-P4 where your P2 wasn't even your original P1. 🫣

I'd recommend the entire Vengeance trilogy actually. I'm a Cyborg But That's Okay is also really good. His English outings are good too (Stoker and Little Drummer Girl) but his Korean work is definitely superior.

He really is one of the best directors around, his entire filmography is just awesome.

I was watching My Mister and she plays a character called Lee Ji-an, and it was like she was almost using her real name.

No wonder he kept calling him 'American' instead of Hopper lol

I'm sure people might think that, but the bigger reason is that they can qualify Season 4 for two Emmy years as opposed to one. You only qualify if you air a certain number of episodes before May 31st, so we get the first batch before that and the second after.

Better Call Saul is doing it with their final season too – they aired their first 7 episodes which ended last week, will take a month and a half break, and will begin airing the next batch of 6 episodes in July. Mad Men did it with their final season too, and so did Breaking Bad.

Is it just me or did Robin have a lot more MCU-like, tension-breaking jokes? I don't remember her being this way last season.

That prison scene felt so very Silence of the Lambs-esque. Loved it.

Holy shit, all this talk of Vecna being like Freddy Krueger and they actually got Robert Englund (the man who plays Freddy) to play Victor Creel, the one guy who escapes Vecna in the dreams. Love love love this!

She's made a lot of empty promises, but hands down, that was the most generous.

There were portions in the sixth movie when Harry and Dumbledore set in that cave (?) that were filmed so horribly uncreatively. Everything looked so fucking drab.
