Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

i wanna make a list of Truly Progressive dramas but i have to put a note about cop dramas being in there while the state exploits power but there are a few…now the question is are they good…

    by truly i mean the writer had clear intentions. the problem with them being like actually good pieces of work is another story (witch’s court…but that girl was EVIL so)

    i still think i’m going to watch nokdu flower but the outcome is so SAD and no one in the revolution got to see when south korea was finally free either. but it meant something…

    there were tons of slave revolts too and haiti is considered the only uprising to have truly eradicated the masters and have a black ruling class..that didnt end well either tho cos oppression eclipses education. as fred hampton said:

    “Papa Doc in Haiti hated everything white… but he moved all the white people out and HE took over to be the oppressor… And if people had been educated, they would’ve said:

    ‘We don’t hate the white people; we hate the OPPRESSOR, whether he be white, black, brown, or yellow.’”

    lmao it’s not as if history is kind at all but knowing the horrors that came next after the failed peasant uprising makes me saaad lmao. im bummed abt something that happened and i sure as hell couldnt prevent. there’s no way everyone doesnt die at the end of this show. actual nokdu gets captured. that aside? i am learning ALLLLL sorts of new things in general (i was watching the doc on cuba and they mention the haitian rev and i looked into that further and then i looked into the japanese occupation of korea lfsogaifuijosjh THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WITH TIME AND SADNESS ON MY HANDS)

QUESTION for any historians or people who know: why does the garb look so similarly in 19th century comparatively to what i have seen of 15th century? that’s literal generations…

    another question is why my dad and i are so similar and why is he watching ‘us’ for the 5th time. he loves discussing films with me since that’s what i want to do it’s cute but fijspofipaijhufsoagij he has this habit of repeating things.

      and im learning these are effects from european imperialism? this is fascinating.

      america also has suuuuch a hand in so many other countries later affairs with each other and their relations with us. this is also why it’s comical that one could would even insinuate our bombing of hiroshima could be seen as freedom for korea when we hold on to that very bloody history of our own and had concentration camps etc. what a sick sad place that my people created so it is my home…

      “The United States, growing into a Pacific power by the end of the nineteenth century, never joined in military adventures to gain territory in China, only to protect American missionaries residing in that country. The United States saved its territorial ambitions for places closer to home; the North American continent, Mexico, the Caribbean, the Hawaiian Islands, and the Philippines. The United States championed the “Open Door Policy” (1899-1900, prohibiting the absorption of any part of China by one nation. As Japan rose as a pacific power in the later half of the nineteenth century, the Open Door Policy became a diplomatic instrument to thwart Japan’s growing territorial ambitions in China. As went China, so went Korea.”

    despite my reservations about global anti-blackness i am aaaalways interested in other cultures and since i’ve been informed about korean culture for years it wasnt until like idk last year (this is also when my politics went way left) that i started looking at feminism in SK and also solidarity w/ black women. there’s NOT a lot of info. but my point IS i support liberation so i want to KNOW MORE!!!!! MORE!

    i was tryna understand the jungjong coup of 1506 like the exact mechanics of it and i will let u no google.com does not help lmao

actors who cant act frustrate me bc they are constantly cast but do not get any better. it’s the worst thing to see as a creative~**~ bc diff acting styles arent shown it’s just a lack of growth

1

    there’s many schools of thought on acting. brecht (theorist/dramatist) had a political approach and remained a marxist. it will look different to stanislavski. one is, if i’m paraphrasing correctly, acting as if it’s reality though we are not in reality. the other is the act of being real (kinda.) there’s plenty of examples of diff types of acting and range and what one actor will prefer to another. there’s also a lot of ex-theater people.

    i digress but in any medium here or in SK or africa there’s a caliber that needs to be met. and more often than not the caliber is not met by idols or models. acting/showbiz has the loooong standing problem of relying on looks (and money) as part of merit. couldn’t be farther from the truth. and for a place that has equally as messed up beauty values, though a stronger aversion to fatness and ugliness, as the US they manifest much differently.

    there are actors that have given themselves time to grow and SPACE so i just assume if by your third project you are not even showing a modicum of strength that you’re trash. also a flash in the pan “good” role is very different than consistency it also depends on definitions of good (i take IU in my ahjussi who i have very different thoughts on than others. she reminds me of sorta a kstew type.)

    some people just can’t. they can’t put in the emotional time and effort into expanding their craft. they arent meant to (although practice makes perfect in situations like these) and beauty over good acting has stood the test of time. so.

      nah it’s fine. i skipped thru a lot of the first ep (the 30 min version) but i was high and i dont remember much. i do remember liking the fact that she got real mad cos he almost HURT HER lmaoooo and she did something human like react and yell. some of these girls fall and look confused and do nothing

            I watched the first episode(?) with them but nothing beyond that. They were still fairly open-minded about it at that point I think but I had a bad feeling and it didn’t interest me.

          lmaoooo first of all at ur disclaimer of cursing.

          wow i didnt know that abt the written series. i’m scared cos u only got to ep 3 but at the same time i think i may have an even lower tolerance than most so i dont think i can finish it. it sucks that it turnd into a standard fare kdrama. i am VERY surprised at the love interest switch? but i guess things wouldn’t be interesting without that inherent power imbalance huh….ty for linking it to me. i am going through ur blog i forgot to bookmark it! i actually stumbled upon your essay abt women in kdramas before which is what lead me back to DB bc i was so frustrated.

          anyway that being saidddddddd guess hwat i’ll start i’m not a robot since i am now a chae soo bin Fan-Fan

oh yea i dropped angry mom cos i was pissed she was upset abt rumors abt her daughter being a lesbian LMAO i have…such a low tolerance. mb i read it wrong…

    I don’t think she was upset about the idea her daughter was a lesbian. I thought she was upset at the school’s dismissiveness of her daughter’s experiences by using the ‘just an obsessed lesbo’ argument. It’s an offensive argument – to teenage girls and to actual queer women – and was emblematic of the inherent misogynism operating in the school.

    1
    1

      hmmm i didnt go further than ep 2 (? or was this ep 1) when she was like “dont say that” after the girl told her about the rumor. it’s completely possible i read it wrong and i am sure you’re right. i am gonna give it a while before i pick it back up though so i don’t have that clouding my mind. i dropped secretary kim bc of this lol i have 3 hard rules abt dramas that if it happens i probably cant go further

        Obviously Korean stuff is going to be pretty awful when it comes to homosexuality. But in this case I saw her anger being about the use of the lesbian rumour to dismiss her concerns.

          it’s gotten a lot better than it used to be and im shocked whenever people mention that they are being acknowledged or other genders since like…it’s ok it’s love (altho the mistaken identity via sexuality trope makes me want to scream) but yea. it’s also a loaded issue. i personally think it’s ridiculous that this would cross her mind, but i also have a (lowkey) homophobic dad so
