You NEED To See This New Korean Film!

I can already tell that Okja is going to make me cry.


I actually found out about this movie thanks to Lily Collins, who is also in the film. There are a ton of familiar faces in the international cast! Lily Collins, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton, Steven Yuan, Paul Dano, etcetcetc!

It also stars a pretty famous child actress in Korea, Ahn Seohyun!
The movie focuses on GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and apparently got a 4 minute standing ovation at Cannes Film Festival this past week! It is by the same director as Snow Piercer, which if you haven't seen it you should!

Here's the trailer!

It will be released exclusively on Netflix on June 28 so get ready!


Who is exctited?! (has anyone seen Bong Joonho's other films?)

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?

11 Pancakes You MUST Try Before You Die
OH GOD YES. Looking at these pictures... makes me feel things. In the part of my brain that I'm pretty sure is usually reserved for hot guys with abs. Yeah, I'm pretty sure my attraction to these pancakes is inappropriate. But just look at them, people. Have you ever seen anything more beautiful? A life without these pancakes... might not be worth living. (JOKE ALERT. LIFE WITHOUT PANCAKES IS JUST FINE PLEASE DON'T TAKE THIS THE WRONG WAY AAHHHHHH) Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes First up is this mind-blowing creation from Spicy Southern Kitchen. Created especially for her daughter's birthday, these peanut butter-infused pancakes have mini peanut butter cups in the batter, and are topped with chocolate sauce and peanut butter whipped cream. There's no way you could feel sad while eating these (unless you have a severe peanut allergy). Scroll to see additional images! Double Stuffed Oreo Pancakes While we're visiting the Spicy Southern Kitchen, it would be remiss not to include the pancakes she created for her daughter's previous birthday. That's right: Double Stuffed Oreo pancakes!! Rich, chocolatey pancakes stuffed with thick Oreo whipped cream. I have just one word for these: uunnnnngggggghhhhh. Cake Batter Pancakes Maybe chocolate isn't your thing. You know, because you're an evil dictator or a mass murderer. That's fine. Try these sweet, mouthwatering Cake Batter pancakes by The Girl Who Ate Everything. Cake batter-flavored pancakes topped with a vanilla glaze and colorful rainbow sprinkles are exactly what you need to bring some joy to your sad, chocolate-less life. S'mores Pancakes Vivian & Me has made all your dreams come true with these amazing s'mores pancakes, packed with chocolate chips and slathered with marshmallow fluff. They look, in a word, amazeballs. I'm also quite partial to the version by We Are Not Martha (see last picture), which are absolutely slathered in chocolate. Included here as an honorable mention. When I make these, I'll probably end up making some kind of hybrid of the two recipes. Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes This is not fair. It is not fair that these pancakes exist, and I'm on a diet. The swirly cinnamon goodness and warm glaze is almost too much to handle. Pixelated Crumb, who brought these beauties into the world, calls them "hands down the most extraordinary pancakes I have ever had." I don't doubt her. Strawberry Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes It's fruit! It's healthy!! Right?? These look like they jumped out of Martha Stewart's kitchen and onto your breakfast table. With homemade strawberry syrup, delicate lemon flavor, and fragrant poppy seeds, you can't go wrong with this beautiful creation by La Creme de la Crumb. Double Chocolate Pancakes If you really, really want dessert for breakfast, then you'd better go with these decadent Double Chocolate pancakes by Bakerella. The cakes, the sauce, even the GARNISH for Pete's sake is chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. YUM. You could also lighten them up by skipping the sauce and garnishing with fresh berries, but where's the fun in that? Lucky Charms Pancakes And now for something completely different. That's right; Lucky Charms pancakes. With marshmallows in the cakes as well as on top! Now THAT'S magically delicious. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day, or just I'm-An-Adult-I-Eat-What-I-Want Day. Get the recipe from Betty Crocker. Apple Pie Pancakes with Vanilla Maple Syrup It wasn't long until somebody brought the apple into this. After bananas, apples and cinnamon might be the next go-to flavor combination for pancakes. You're in luck; these pancakes apparently taste exactly like apple pie. And topped with vanilla maple syrup? Forget it. Fall pancake heaven. Thank you, Averie Cooks. Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes ANOTHER green pancake? I thought those were once in a lifetime. But no – introducing Mint Chocolate Chip pancakes by the... interestingly named Caramel Potatoes (who names these blogs?)! With just the right touch of mint and yummy mini chocolate morsels, you're sure to love these despite their intimidating color. Breakfast Pigs In A Blanket On A Stick Oh god. Now for the motherlode. I can't stop thinking about these. And I WON'T stop thinking about these, I know, until I try making them myself. They're griddled breakfast sausages, dipped in pancake batter and deep fried. Then dunked in maple syrup and CONSUMED RAVENOUSLY. Mrs. Schwartz's Kitchen has really outdone itself on this one. Aaaaand that, my friends, concludes the list of pancakes you must try before you die. Although if you eat all of these on a regular basis, you might do just that. If you try any of the recipes, be sure to let me know how it turns out :) and snap a pic and make your own card, so we can all drool in jealousy!! XD
Women Are Clingy, Men Are Romantic
Why is it that when a man performs a wild, extravagant, borderline-stalker gesture, and he's SO ROMANTIC. A woman attempts to sweep a man off of his feet, and we're called crazy. Or clingy. Or obsessive. Why is it more socially acceptable for a man to overly express his emotional side but women need to play it cool when it comes to romance? Writes you letters everyday. Think of the Notebook. We're told to think that's super romantic of the guy, but if a girl did it she'd be seen as obsessed!! Throws rocks at your window. I used to fantasize about that when I was younger, hoping my crush would ride his bike over and say he loves me from the street below. But think about a girl doing that...she's probably stalking you. Shows up outside your classroom door to walk you to your next class. A guy standing outside your office or classroom door is sweet, touching, cute, but a girl might be a little obsessed with you, right? Trying to change your mind about dating them. Girls chasing after their crush telling them 'I'll treat your right!,' ' Just give me one shot,' or anything Heath Ledger said in 10 Things I Hate About You just sounds goofy to think about! Do anything annoyingly musical. Put on a performance in front of the whole school, hold up a boom box outside of your window, whatever it is, guys can do it and girls should sort of...not... Use pick up lines. Guys may get a huge eye roll for using them, but have you ever heard a girl throw out a pick up line at someone at the bar? Probably not. Ladies: Do you ever feel like you can't make any big romantic gestures? What's a romantic thing you've done? Ladies and Gentlemen: Would you be turned on or off by a girl doing a bigger romantic gesture that's usually just considered a guy thing? Personally, I'm all for everyone showing love in as many ways as they can! I'm not super into big romantic things for me personally, but I say guys and gals should be able to do whatever they want!
