Kdrama Family Q&A: Favorite Drama

I know, I know, what an impossible question ;)

For me I would have to say Reply 1997. It has comedy, romance, family issues, it even teaches you a lot about modern Korean history and has a strong openly gay character!

I also have to give a huge shout out to My Love From Another Star too cause it's such a good one :')

What's yours!? Either leave it in the comments or make your own card!

My favs are Kill Me, Heal Me, Secret Garden, Jekyll,Hyde, and Me, and Fight My Way
My favorite k dramas are Weightlifting Fairy, Strong Woman, Tempted and Goblin's
Descendants of the Sun cause it was the first one that I finished.
Descendants of the Sun, and Youโ€™re Beautiful. Iโ€™ve seen them more than twice all the way through lol
The drama with the best ending ever is "1% of Something", a relatively new one. The most heartfelt drama that touched all my emotions is "Blood" (tear jerker warning!!!!), a fun drama with great scenery is "Jeju Island Gatsby", and for the best romance within the drama, I'd say "Goblin" and "Coffee Prince" haha. My FAVORITE drama though, that's a hard one... but I know it has to be "Strongest Delivery Man".

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 childrenโ€™s rights and expose the crimes being committed at the school, he soon realizes the schoolโ€™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?
'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 โ€” 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?!
