    After watching MY COUNTRY, I found Dr. Lee’s comments on Chinese innovations in costume armor to be very interesting. The lighter weight of the newfangled reproductions parallels that of the real-life paper armor that was also innovated in China long ago. Armor made of layers of paper and fabric was also used in Korea as a low-cost alternative to expensive metal-plate armor that conscripted commoners supplied themselves. It could be made and laced together by women and old men instead of skilled blacksmiths and armorers.

    Wonderful! I was able to go from West to East Berlin through Checkpoint Charlie, the American Checkpoint, in 1971. East Berlin was positively spooky. I couldn’t wait to get out of there.

CRASH LANDING ON YOU

The Association: “Windy” (1967)

For @yyishere‘s “strange wind” cameo. A #1 blast from the past I haven’t thought of in decades.

      Wow! @bbstl, I didn’t even know they had a fan club. How cool!

      Ya think this is apropos for @yyishere‘s “strange wind” cameo? — If it were set down South, it’d be The Byrds’ “Hickory Wind” (Sweetheart of the Rodeo LP, 1968), with Gram Parsons on lead vocals.

        I just loved them and their complicated harmonies. Ah, youth!

        Not surprisingly, I heavily favor your choice of “Windy” and I think @yyishere will approve 🌬

          In case you may not remember, I had a cameo in That Winter The Wind Blows. But I was just The Wind. Not a particular TYPE, you understand. Just an airy presence. So I’m a bit nervous – not much, since I’m a pro, just a tad – why, you ask. Well, I have to be a STRANGE wind in Hyun bin’s drama. Which means I could be a BAD wind…not the mindless, invisible typical one you would expect, but a creepy wind, with bad intentions. But I am the catalyst in the story. Without me, there would be no parachute, no heroine tumbling into the jungle, no brooding, absy jungle man to rescue her. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of ME.

          And, doggone it, I clean forgot about the dog tag cameo. *slaps forehead* *scratches back
          sheepdog-ishly* But I’m no STRANGE-R – ahem pun intended – to dual roles. Gonna sink my teeth into this, and look out, world – that 2019 BEST CAMEO award? It’s in the bag, no bones about it.

            I’m starting to suspect you have a doppelganger. I’ve always wondered how you manage to appear in various dramas at the same time… a dual cameo role is nothing next to that. 😉

            I admit to being quite jealous that you will appear in an HB show, you must tell us all about him and how it feels to waft around him at will.

        I can foresee someone getting very possessive of those dogtags. This could get messy.

        Hark! Binnie will need the Liaodong Survivors — and Lee Bang-won himself — for bodyguards if Rrandenae Oybae Irlgae gets wind of @yyishere‘s acting gig. Yong-shik will have to be on stakeout at the set. LOL!

            @bbstl,
            My pig Latin is probably not kosher. I think I screwed up the first word. Took a stab in the dark because of the initial vowel — which becomes kind of unpronounceable when another vowel is tacked onto it, hence the added “n”. 😉
