    Insights into Korean Culture & Spirituality in Drama — Overview

    My initial lengthy post in thread #25 of the episode 21 recap of REBEL: THIEF WHO STOLE THE PEOPLE consists of a compilation of pointers to insightful discussions I have participated in that helped me understand puzzling aspects of Kdramas such as OH HAE-YOUNG AGAIN, MIRROR OF THE WITCH, and others. They had been so interesting and helpful that I wanted to bring them to the attention of fellow Beanies. (Note: References to Mugyo are sprinkled throughout the episode 21 recap comments on REBEL, not just in thread #25.)

    I decided to post the compilation on my fan wall following the conclusion of THE KING LOVES / THE KING IN LOVE. The subtlety of non-verbal exposition of San’s relationships with Won and Rin called for nunchi (literally “eye measurement”), which seems to have eluded a significant fraction of the viewership.

    Terms and topics that are addressed/mentioned:

    Mugyo, a.k.a. Muism, indigenous Korean shamanism
    non-linear time
    circular time
    use of flashbacks
    ghosts
    death
    physical soul
    timeless soul
    dreams and premonitions
    animism
    nature
    Kishōtenketsu, plot structure in 4 acts without inherent conflict
    Dream Record

    nunchi (“eye measurement”); sometimes cued by zooming in on a detail, panning across a scene, or indicated with sound effects

      Thanks, Ally!
      So that’s what Permalink means… I’d wondered how to specify a single post. Now I know. 😉

      Thanks again, Ally!

      When I get a chance, I’ll redo the fanwall post to include the permlinks. Using the date/time stamps identified the original posters. 😉

          You contribute interesting and thought-provoking posts yourself. 😉
