  1. Hi, I’m glad that I found your blog. I love k-dramas especially the ones that give me something to ponder, reflect myself and change my perception on certain things. Like ‘My Daughter Seo Young for example. There was one quote in the drama: “Everyone has their own mirror to see things, they forget that it can perceived in different angle from other people’s mirror” that really changed the way I see other people. Looking forward to read more of your posts! 🙂

    • Thanks for your comment! It’s always heartwarming to meet like-minded bloggers, and that was indeed a fabulous quote from My Daughter Seo-Young. Perhaps I should feature it in a post one day. Lee Bo-young’s subsequent drama, I Hear Your Voice, was rather thought-provoking too. The same goes for Pinocchio, which, as you may know, was produced by the same director and writer behind I Hear Your Voice. In fact, one can probably write a whole website on the numerous topics covered by Pinocchio. The maturity of the relationships between the primary and, I would argue, secondary couples also offers much food for thought. I’m sad that I’m limiting myself to four posts, at least for the time being.


  2. This blog is a really great piece of work. I’m absolutely glad I found this!!! I also want to recommend 2 kdramas. 1) Woman of Dignity
    2) The Great Seducer
    I’m looking forward to further posts!!

    • Thank you so much for your warm comment. It would have been lovely to discuss the spectacular use of Gustave Klimt’s The Kiss in Woman of Dignity‘s commentary on social mobility, but this admin is already spending too much time away from a technology-related project that seeks to boost gender equality in STEM disciplines. The Great Seducer, like many non-hybrid romance dramas nowadays, is not quite my cup of tea. If you are interested, though, you can read this thread by a sociologist that compares the drama with the original novel Les Liaisons dangereuses and other adaptations:

      You may also like to check out this moving short film about the visually impaired, which I have recently completed an article on, if you have not already watched it:

      Again, thanks for your support of this site. Happy drama watching!
