    I need help. I'm new here and I just published my third article and it was rejected from being featured. Then I corrected and still doesn't meet expectations. I don't know what else to add. I don't think I missed anything, but it's possible. It's a Korean drama review. Can you tell me? Please

      No, no one can tell you without looking at the article. Look at the rejection email from Hubpages. There is a link that you can post here so that others can look at your article and help you. You need to post it here.

          That does not help much, we really need that link.

      One big problem that jumped out at me is that you are using illegal photos.  You can only use your own photos or photos that have creative commons licenses.  You can't just copy photos from other sites.  That is considered theft and is illegal.  You need to spend some time reviewing the information in the Learning Center (Help button, upper right).  That will tell you everything that you need to know to properly write and format an article for Hubpages.

      Perhaps you should proofread it again because there are a few mistakes. For example, you've said 'prolongs' where it should be 'prolong'. Good luck!

    But when you write reviews where you can find creative commons licenses images from movies tv shows? Nowhere, and I looked everywhere. And I read hubs here and they all use them like I do. They just source them and I did that.

      I think it's okay for reviews because it's considered 'fair use'... and of course the book, play, or movie is getting publicity.

      Most publishers produce a (digital) package for press reviews. Check to see if there's a webpage for the drama - there's sure to be some info there.

    Your article is not going to fail because of a minor error like prolong. The only thing I see that might be considered spammy is the "source" under the photos. I was writing an article on aggression some time ago and they asked me to remove a link that was considered poor. Maybe Drama Milk is in the same category?
    If this were my article I would remove those two images and see if it passes.
    I also have a suggestion about the title, but it has nothing to do with failing, just with potential future traffic. When you are going to read a movie review, do you normally open up and read sources like Hubpages or are you more likely to look at Rotten Tomatoes? If all of the titles are similar, most choose a well-known site. The only way you are going to get a potential reader to click on to your article is if your title jumps out at them and makes them want to read. How about "Prison Playbook: A Review of The Best Redemption Movie Since Shawshank"?

    Thank you especially for the title I will change it to that. If you don't mind? Thank you again.

    You should proofread the article carefully to catch a few mistakes. It's especially important that the first text capsule is free of errors.

    You are using photos of the movie that you are reviewing is standard practice. The studio and distributor want you to use them.
    I don't see anything that could be spammy. I know that you need to edit your article. Read it out loud to yourself, and you'll see. Also, you have a "too" when it should be "to."
