'Train to Busan' as Critique of Korean Society
I still haven't been able to see Train to Busan for myself, but I found this article on NPR to be really interesting! It doesn't ruin any plot points (other than the fact that there is a zombie apocalypse which I'm pretty sure we could gather from the trailer...) According to the article: Without giving too much of the story away, the film blames corporate callousness for the death toll. The government covers up the truth — or is largely absent. And the crew? Rather than rescue passengers, it follows the wishes of a businessman. Sewol Ferry Reference: These themes are particularly resonant in South Korea, which in 2014 faced national tragedy after 300 people, mostly teenagers, died when a ferry overturned in the sea. Investigators found the ferry's corporate owners overloaded it to save money. And the captain and crew got into lifeboats without rescuing passengers. News media, toeing the government line, originally reported that everyone survived, blamed rescuers for not working hard enough (when in reality the government refused to let them go into the water and rescue the children), etc. The Korean president's whereabouts on that day are still unexplained. Then the MERS Outbreak: Last year, as Middle East respiratory syndrome, or MERS, spread in South Korea, the government wouldn't share key information about where patients were being treated, where it started, and how officials would contain the outbreak. The government refused to communicate with the public, so the Seoul mayor had to go against the president and form his OWN plan to fix the problem. As a result, he's now in the running for next president (since Koreans have lost all respect or trust in the current pres) You can read the full piece by NPR right HERE. Has anyone seen this yet?!
8 K-Dramas With Bittersweet Endings
Bittersweet Ending: The ending is happy but also sad at the same time! This card will contain spoilers for all the dramas mentioned! [365: Repeat the Year] Our character's do get a happy ending because they all live but at the same time it's sad. Hyeongju is successfully able to return to the past and reset which means all of our characters who previously died (killed off by our resident serial killer whom I won't name for spoiler reasons) are alive again. This includes Hyeongju's new best friend Gahyeon, however, because she did not reset as well she no longer remembers what happened in the previous reset (for those who have not seen this drama the reset is only going into the past year but only those who went through the reset remember the future they've already lived through.) So, because Gahyeon who died in the previous reset and therefore was unable to go through the reset with Hyeongju no longer remembers the process in which her and Hyeongju became friends. [Circle] In the ending of Circle we find that Woojin our main character died in the past and has been replaced by a clone. His twin brother cannot accept this at first but later comes to terms with it. So, while we do not get a happy ending for the real Woojin there is still some peace and happiness because his clone remains in his place. Sadly for Minister Park we do not get to see his character learn to move past his flaws and he dies this way. [Children of Nobody] Depending on how invested in the characters you were you could also find this drama's ending to be tragic. In this drama's ending we find out our loveable character Eunho is the serial killer we've been searching for the entire drama. The part that makes this drama's ending so bittersweet is that it's really hard to hate or dislike Eunho. He was abused as a child and still holds a child-like mentality but because of all that he has endured he's took it upon himself to kill those who abuse children because he was abused himself. Sadly he is shot to death by our main lead Jihyun because Eunho was trying to kill our female lead Wookyung whom had been in an abusive childhood home herself. Eunho was stuck in an unhealthy mentality thinking that in order to be happy she needed to die, almost like he was doing her a service by killing her. Though in the end we do see the serial killer being caught we also lose Lee Eunho, someone who while yes is a murderer is also someone very innocent. Eunho also was never given the proper treatment he needed, I think had someone tried to help him long before he reached his breaking point he could've been saved. [Duel] Again like above it kind of depends on how invested you were in the characters. I know a lot of people favored Sunghoon over Sungjoon. (For those who did not watch this drama here is a little back story: Sunghoon and Sungjoon are twin clones of a doctor who died in the past named Dr. Yongseop. Sungjoon is the good clone, while Sunghoon was the bad one of the two.) In our bittersweet ending we sadly have to say goodbye to Sunghoon, whom was bad the entire series but in the end he was bad for a good reason (like Eunho above) though this doesn't necessarily give him a pass to kill people. Unlike Eunho who didn't get the chance to, Sunghoon rights his wrong by killing the main bad guy which helps Sungjoon and the others out tremendously. It was sad that Sunghoon had to die to get us a happy ending though! [Extracurricular] There are three different possible endings to Extracurricular and each one of them leaves you with a bittersweet taste in your mouth. First we will start with Ending #1, at the end of the drama after being stabbed by Kitae, Jisoo and Gyuri rush off to the stairwell where Jisoo falls and tells Gyuri she should go on without him, however Gyuri does not want to leave him. In the first ending scenario when the female officer finds the spot in the stairwell where Jisoo and Gyuri were neither of them were there. This ending alludes to both Jisoo and Gyuri living and avoiding jail. Which means that yes they do both live and escape but they do not pay for the crimes in which they've committed. So, while being probably the most favored ending it still leaves you with the sadness that they will always have to be on the run and will probably never have a normal life. Ending #2, the female officer arrives in the stairwell only to find Jisoo there, meaning that Jisoo decided to turn himself in but Gyuri decided against this and left him there. This ending while partially being happy is still sad because Gyuri's character did not grow, she did not stick with Jisoo, she remained all about herself and did not pay for the crimes she committed unlike Jisoo would. Ending #3, the female officer arrives and both Jisoo and Gyuri remain. While this is also not an entirely happy ending since the both of them would be headed to jail, they are still paying for their crimes and may some day be released from jail to live a better life. [Extraordinary You] In this drama our main leads get to meet again as extra characters in a new manhwa and are able to remember what happened in the previous manhwa. However, us as viewers are left with a bittersweet feeling knowing that our main couple will forever be stuck in a repeating cycle of manhwas and in future manhwas risk the chance of not being drawn by the writer or erased entirely. [Remember: War of the Son] Our main leads do not get a happy ending as a couple because our male lead suffers from Alzheimer's. But his father is cleared of his crime and the real killer is behind bars so nonetheless the ending we are given is still a happy one. [Reunited Worlds] In this drama our male lead Haesung is given a second chance to live and appears before his family and Jungwon, the girl he loves once again however, he's still stuck in his teenage body while everyone else has aged 12 years. Thoroughout the drama we slowly realize that Haesung is disappearing again but he's brought his estranged family back together again. Though we lost our male lead again we can rest assured that his family and Jungwon are in good hands now.

Creepy Dolls Mysteriously Pop Up In London.
If you were traveling through London earlier this month, you may have come across quite a hair-raising surprise. Two living and extremely ominous-looking porcelain dolls were reported to have stalked many of the city's popular sites this month - including the Regents Street shopping district and Charing Cross station. The two were dressed in pale pink Victorian-style clothing with identical blank states and auburn hair, and were often found either holding hands, holding onto a precious toy, or pushing along a black vintage stroller through popular neighborhoods. Understandably, London commuters were a little freaked out. Eventually, witnesses took to social media to share their videos and pictures, and many people began to hunt for the dolls' origin and identities. Soon enough, it was announced that the dolls were sent out to help market Thorpe Park, a popular amusement park and tourist destination, and Minds Wanted, their upcoming collaboration with illusionist Derren Brown. Opening next March, Minds Wanted is the world's first 'immersive psychological attraction' - a 13-minute ride that caters specifically to fans of psychological thrillers that the company vows will 'manipulate the human mind'. In an official statement, Derren explained why they decided to go about such a creepy form of advertising: "I believe we are moving toward a future where theme park attractions not only give you a physical experience but also play with your mind and the concept of what is real. The Victorian twin dolls, who have popped up around London this week, are just a taster of what my new attraction has in store for visitors to Thorpe Park next spring." So now I want to know: Would you guys want to write a 13-minute psychological thrill ride? Or have these dolls sufficiently scarred you for life? Personally, I hate getting scared as a form of entertainment, but I'll be honest and admit that I'm at least pretty curious about how this mysterious ride is going to pan out. Let me know how YOU feel in the comments below, and for more WTF news, follow my WTF Street Journal collection.
Train - K-Drama Recommendation
Main Cast: Yoon Shi Yoon, Kyung Soo Jin, Shin So Yool Episodes: 12 (1 Hour Episodes) - Currently Airing (On Viki) Rating: 15+ Genre: Thriller, Crime, Fantasy, Mystery, Romance, Drama Synopsis: A hard-hitting detective who fearlessly dives into his work, Seo Do Won is relentless when it comes to bringing criminals to justice. Willing to take on any case, no matter how hard, Do Won has made a name for himself as a man who gets the job done. But when the woman he loves becomes the latest victim of a serial killer, his world completely changes. Literally. Mysteriously able to move between parallel universes, Do Won now lives in both worlds as a man who must pay for the sins of his father in one, and as a man forced to live a precarious life because of those sins in the other. As if the duality of his life wasn’t hard enough to deal with, he soon learns that his deceased love may be gone in one world, but she’s very much alive in the other. Vowing to track down her killer in one universe, while simultaneously trying to protect her in the other, Do Won is quick to acknowledge this is not something he can do alone. Seeking the help of his colleagues in both universes, Do Won asks Han Seo Kyung, an honest, yet reserved prosecutor with a big heart in one world, and a cold and emotionless detective in the other, to help him out. Together with Lee Jung Min, a tenacious member of the scientific investigation unit, they’ll do whatever it takes to track down the killer in one world and protect his love in the other. But will their efforts in either universe really be enough? (Source: Viki) My Thoughts: If you liked crime dramas such as Tunnel, Signal, or Voice this drama is right up your alley. While Tunnel is more of a past to the future drama, as is Signal, Train is a parallel universe so it is technically more different but when it boils down to it its the same genre. However, Train is proving to be just as good as the three dramas mentioned above. I have just finished episode 1 and it is really thrilling!
