10 Characters you're guaranteed to see in every K-drama
Ever feel like some of your K-dramas are a lot like some of your other K-dramas, but you can’t quite put your finger on why? Well, to help you chart your sense of déjà vu like some sort of epistemic “Where’s Waldo,” here are the 10 characters you will see in every Korean drama EVER! 1) The shy girl that guys can’t resist She rarely says a word that isn’t an apologetic “sorry” followed by an embarrassed bow, but apparently, just her eyes are enough to drive all the men insane. 2) The rich jerk with a heart of gold There won’t necessarily be too many times where he’s tolerable, but he will do such nice things for our lady that you can’t help but fall in love with him. 3) The celebrities that are everywhere And it’s not the least bit strange that internationally recognized idols of music or film have nothing better to do than hang out with apparent nobodies all the time. 4) The mother that owns you As an Asian male, I can attest that no matter how old we get, no matter how much money we earn, no matter how independent we seem—our mothers rule our lives. 5) The unlucky-in-love sidekick She’s charming, she’s kind, and she’s often just as pretty as our lead lady, but this girl is there to repeatedly get her heart broken and to share those sad moments with our considerably more fortunate lead. 6) The nice guy that doesn’t get the girl Unfortunately, the rich jerk is the one that rides off into the sunset with the lady. This guy, whether he is the goof that makes our lady laugh or the angry but loving friend, he’s just not going to get the girl. 7) The arrogant beauty queen She knows she’s beautiful and she makes sure you know it. Unfortunately for her, our lovely lead is nicer and almost always gets the guy. 8) The distant, angry young man Almost like the Kdrama equivalent of an anime drifter, this angry young man does not seem to enjoy life and pretty much exits whenever he gets the chance. 9) The evil old guy Sometimes a henchman of the aforementioned mother, or even the father, this company executive/dastardly villain/crime leader will try to take our lead’s life in an accident. Usually, though, he’ll just give the hero amnesia. 10) The Traveler They always have to leave before the end of the show, exiting just in time to create the perfect teary-eyed goodbye (or, you know, just so they don’t disturb our existing love angles). So what other K-drama characters do you keep coming across? And have you found that mystical unicorn that doesn’t exist in K-dramas—a guy who isn’t that good-looking?
MBC Strike: What This Means for Kpop Fans
MBC is finally going on strike which is completely not normal for Korea. As you probably know, the working culture in Korea is insane, especially in the entertainment industry where everyone involved (not just the actors) often work 20-23 hours a day. There have recently been un uptick in suicides by writers and producers because of the immense stress put on them. MBC is also known here in Korea to be under the control of bigger powers, such as the old president who was impeached. Rather than sharing the real news, the anchors were forced to spin stories to be positive for the president and to support her because the owners of the station were being put under pressure by the corrupt government. Basically MBC is just bad news, and the workers are sick of it. As of this week, the workers have all stopped coming to work meaning unless something was previously recorded, there will be no news, no radio, no dramas, no nothing, until they get what they want (way better working conditions and probably a way better CEO) Because of this, it looks like a music festival has been cancelled as well. BTS V and Twice Dahyun were going to host it and its line up would have included BTS, TWICE, Red Velvet, B1A4, BTOB, Teen Top, B.A.P, MAMAMOO, GFRIEND, BLACKPINK, iKON, EXID, NU’EST W, Lovelyz, ASTRO, and PRISTIN. To be honest, I don't really care that this was cancelled, as I'd much rather have thousands of people's lives improved than watch a few groups perform one or two songs each that we've already heard before. I'm sad if this was anyone's one chance to see these groups live (like if they were vacationing to korea) but in the long run I think it will help a lot more people than it will inconvenience. Here's to hoping the working conditions of people behind the shows we love so much improve greatly <3

You Won't Do That Pt. 1
Summary: If Hoseok had the right to keep you a secret from her, than you had the right to keep him a secret from Hoseok.

She leaned forward eagerly in her wire seat as you hesitantly looked away from her the other tables lined up neatly outside the cafe. A cool breeze pushed your hair into your eyes and you took the moment to delay answering the question, hoping she’d move on. Since the appearance of the bruise like marks all over your neck and collarbones had surfaced three months ago, Yureon had been on the hunt to find out as much about them as possible. It had taken her a surprising three minutes to deduce that they were from a man. As your self appointed best friend, she insisted that best friends shared stories of their lovemaking with their significant other. In her earnestness to get you to open up about the mystery man, she reveal more information than you’d like to know about her time with her partner. You’d only smile at her tales, growing more uncomfortable by the minute with them. Usually, if you stayed silent long enough, she’d grow weary of waiting and change the subject. Today was no different. “Nice try, Y/N.” She chuckled, playfully flicking your arm,”I still want to know who this mystery man is.” Yureon pressed the pad of her index finger firmly on purple mark on your collarbone,”From his evidence, he seems nice….At least give me the first part of his given name! I’ve been dying with curiosity for the past three months.” You wriggled your fingers, nervously tugging up the collar of your shirt to cover the mark,” It’s ‘Ho’..” Her eyes lit up,”Finally a hint! Hm…’Ho”…that’s funny, just like Hoseok.” She murmured,”Speaking of Hoseok, he should be here soon, but you know him…always late.” Yureon glanced at her watch,”He better not be late to our wedding next month, can you imagine..?” The waiter passed by the small table, asking if the two of you needed anything. As per usual Yureon sent a suspicious look between you and him. Somewhere along the way, she had conjured up the absurd notion that every male she came across while with you was your ‘mystery man’. At your unimpressed look and the waiter’s utter confusion (and possible the fact that his nametag said Jaechul), she backed off. Yureon waved him off and focused back on you,” So ‘Ho’ something..why won’t you tell me his full name or let me meet him? Is he secretly married? Y/N, are you being naughty?” You furiously shook your head,”No!” Delicately, your eyes lowered to the shiny diamond ring on Yureon’s left hand,”He’s not married.” You spoke truthfully. It was the truth. He wasn’t married. Yet. You still had a month.
