I used to really cringe at the thought of Asian entertainment – J-Dramas, K-Dramas, ridiculous reality shows, terrible over-acting, bad acting in general, etc, etc (though admittedly, I’ve always had a guilty pleasure soft spot for J and K-Pop – don’t judge me.) But growing up an anime/JRPG fan and being a Japanophile (I don’t -think- I’m a weeb, though… ?), I always gave Asian media a shot, even knowing that I’d be disappointed and turn it off less than halfway.
Nowadays, thankfully, Asian media has captivated and impacted me to the same degree as the anime and JRPGs of my past. Train to Busan, Parasite, Terrace House, and most recently, Kingdom have all been positive experiences. I was kinda kicking myself that I hadn’t discovered Kingdom sooner – I’m sure one or more of you even suggested it to me! A 16th century Korean political drama with zombies?! Why didn’t I think of that! :D
What else am I missing? Snowpiercer was great, The Host is on my watch list, I’m anxiously waiting for Terrace House and Kingdom to come back… I need my fix!
Enjoy Scene 33 – “There’s Something About Plants”!
