Korean Horror Movie: Train to Busan

This looks so ridiculous but with that cast, I HAVE to see it!

Basically there is a zombie apocalypse in Seoul and a group of people are stuck on a train while it happens. They try to stay alive as their country is turned into a zombie-fest.

It is about to come out in Korea, so I'm not sure when it will be available with English subs but I'll keep you posted!

It stars huge names like Gong Yoo (Coffee Prince), Wonder Girls Sohee, Ma Dongseok, and Choi Wooshik (Rooftop Prince)!

Who else wants to see this?!

'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?!

Why You Should Stop Watching These Kpop YouTube Lyric Channels!
I wanted to talk about this on here because it's been blowing up on YouTube the past like month and I wasn't sure if people knew about it on here. (At the very bottom I will list channels that do this and some safe channels you can watch, how to look out for these people who are ripping these artists off.) Channels such as Jaeguchi, Zaty Farhani, and Lemonring (some of the most popular Kpop Lyric Channels) are stealing money from Kpop artists. How so, you might ask, well for Jaeguchi it is slightly different than the other two. Jaeguchi is actually not an individual, it is technically a company behind the channel. There are a couple of people behind the channel who are making these videos. Most of the time the lyrics are inaccurate translations of the Korean lyrics. And here is the big kicker, they have a company behind them that is overriding the Copyright put on their videos by for example SM. For those of you that do not know about YouTube's copyright system I'll explain a bit. 1. As soon as your video is uploading it is flagged for any copyrighted material. So, when I post an NCT video, SM immediately claims it and places ADs on it. Therefore SM is making money off of my video. (In my case I do not have my channel monetized because I do not wish to make money off of these videos.) Therefore this would make my NCT video unmonetizable but otherwise fine to stay up on my channel because SM ismaking money off of it. 2. Most times a company will flag you for the music, however, in some cases they will get you for the Music Video which is a VISUAL copyright. Now this is important, a VISUAL copyright outweighs a MUSIC copyright. So, for example NCT 127's Kick It on my channel, SM claimed Kick It's Music Video instead of the song Kick It because the visual copyright is considered ABOVE the music. This Is What You Should Be Seeing in A Lyric Video's Desciption if A Kpop Artist's Company is Claiming The Video like they should be: (Note: This is taken from my Lyric Video for Jason Derulo, Lay, & NCT 127's 'Shut Up & Dance') This is what you'd see on a channel like ZATY FARHANI's: (Notice how additionally to SF9's 'Summer Breeze' there is another song claimed in the description. Meaning the artist of 'lost in your arms' is making half the revenue.) ALSO, On JAEGUCHI'S Channel I noticed This: (SM is not claiming Kick It, meaning they are not making money off of this video) BUT, I Used 12 Seconds of Kick It in One of My Videos and This Appears in my Description: (Yeah...so something has to be going on there!) Okay back to Jaeguchi, the company behind them is somehow claiming that the videos they make are VISUALLY their's so therefore it outweigh's the MUSIC's copyright therefore allowing Jaeguchi to make a profit off of their videos. So, that means that for instance if Jaeguchi made an NCT 127 Punch lyric video SM would not be making money off of it. Which is freaking ridiculous. Now onto channels such as Zaty Farhani and Lemonring. They are doing it a different way. On these two channels you may notice that after the song is done there is still about a minute of content left at the end of their videos with some half-assed song that Zaty or Lemon has made themselves. They themselves are entering their songs into the YouTube copyright system and therefore when they upload these videos YouTube claims the songs therefore making it to where they can make half the revenue that the video makes. So, a dumbed down version of this: If Zaty makes a Pentagon Dr. Bebe lyric video and Cube claims Dr. Bebe, Zaty is also claiming their minute song at the end. So, therefore Cube and Zaty are having to split what they make off the video whenever pretty much the entire video is not Zaty's content. I just find this complete bullshit because there are idols who are not getting paid, who have to work part-time jobs in order to make money and here we have "SO CALLED FANS" stealing from them. It's absolute garbage! Channels You Should Avoid if Possible: JAEGUCHI ZATY FARHANI Lemonring Jyimina PJ (READ BELOW) (Seems to have recently started doing it, check out how in their Kang Daniel 'Waves' Lyric video there are two songs claimed in the description, one being Daniel's and the other being a random ass song by an "Artist" named Yo2zing...well look what pops up whenever you type in Yo2zing into Google.) Channels That Aren't Profiting Off of Kpop Artists (as of now): KPOP. vine Yankat (No longer active but their channel still has some older lyric videos you can watch) Kimorene Watch These Videos to Learn More About What's Happening: The video below is the one that outed JAEGUCHI & ZATY FARHANI: Another Video about JAEGUCHI & ZATY FARHANI from the same YouTuber: Below Is Another YouTuber That Talks About It Too: And Another YouTuber Commenting On This: ANYWAYS THANKS FOR READING!

Korean Movie Club: Silenced
Trigger warning: Physical and sexual abuse of minors. The plot: Kang In-ho (Gong Yoo) is a new art teacher at Benevolence Academy, a deaf school for children (Based on the real-life Gwangju Inhwa School). He's excited to teach his new students, but they all seem afraid of him and even scared. In-ho does not give up, and eventually the students start to open up to him - and tell him horrifying things. The children are being physically and sexually abused by their teachers. When he decides to fight for the children’s rights and expose the crimes being committed at the school, he soon realizes the school’s principal and teachers, and even the police, prosecutors and churches in the community are actually trying to cover up the truth According to its summary: It is based on actual events that took place at Gwangju Inhwa School for the hearing-impaired, where young deaf students were the victims of repeated sexual assaults by faculty members over a period of five years in the early 2000s The aftermath: The film looks at both the crimes, as well as the legal battle that followed. It showed the true story that the teachers who ABUSED THEIR STUDENTS were let off with minimal punishment. The nation was pissed. After its release, there was so much outrage from the citizens who watched the film, that the investigations were reopened. The demand for legislative reform reached all the way to the National Assembly, where a revised bill, dubbed the Dogani Bill, was passed in late October 2011 to abolish the limitations for sex crimes against minors and the disabled. I haven't seen it yet and will need to be emotionally ready, but I do want to see a film that sparked such a big change in Korea! You can watch it here on Dramanice. Is anyone else interested or has seen it before?
