Kdrama Rosetta Stone

Weird Sounds That Only Koreans Make 한국사람들만 내는 소리
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYL87txC_XI

These intonations slay me every time. Daebak!

    It’s missing an example for the sound “khhh” (I think…) : the sound one makes after drinking (or eating?) something really delicious. I’ve only heard that in kdrama.

    At least half of those sounds are commonplace in other cultures though and in similar contexts.

YOUR HONOR / DEAR JUDGE OST

    Movements 1 [Sonatina] & 4 [Finale (Tema Russo)] are the basis of the instrumental OST “Statue Of Social Standards.” I was delighted to also recognize the opening bars of movement 2 [Walzer]. Movement 3 = Elegie. The Saito-Kinen Orchestra’s premiere performance is sublime.

    See the related Smithsonian article (also on my fan wall) on the belated publication of Zora Neale Hurston’s Barracoon: The Story of the Last “Black Cargo”, her semifictionalized first-person account of the life of Cudjo Lewis (born Oluale Kossola in Dahomey, now known as Benin). He was the last surviving slave born in Africa when she conducted her interviews with him in 1928. As a 19-year-old, Kossola had been captured in West Africa and transported as a slave to Mobile, Alabama decades after the slave trade had been outlawed.

    I was aware of Hurston’s work as a folklorist, but did not know that she was a trained anthropologist and student of Franz Boas.

THE JOURNALS OF MUSAN (2011)

    This thought-provoking interview conducted at the 2011 edition of the San Francisco International Film Festival caught my eye while perusing the now-archived website of the San Francisco Film Society, the former SF360.org [now parked at sf360.org.mytempweb.com]. The San Francisco Film Society screened and reviewed Korean films during its 6 years of activity.

    I’ve read many a thoughtful review by Adam Hartzell at KoreanFilm.org, and this interview is no exception. Several other movies about North Korean refugees in the ROK (DANCE TOWN, DOOMAN RIVER) are mentioned. The TV movie BALLERINO, which I watched on Viki.com in 2016, may have been the first show on North Korean escapees that I’ve seen so far, so I was intrigued to happen across MUSAN. I’m keeping my eye out for it now that I know it exists.

    I watched the Kdrama MAWANG / THE LUCIFER (2007) starting in late 2017. The show added a new concept to my Kdrama vocabulary. The theme of wangtta (both bullying / shunning behavior and its target) was the lynchpin that memorably set the plot in motion. Having already seen a number of Kdramas depicting school violence and bullying that I simply couldn’t grok, I read up on the subject and was appalled by what I learned. Tom and I discussed the phenomenon at length in the comments on MAWANG starting here:

    IIRC, this is a link I had posted on my fan wall back then:

    ROK doesn’t have a corner on wangtta, according to this illuminating article by a Thai-Chinese-American who taught in Korea on a Fulbright grant:
