Hello. This is AKIA Talking now
from Korea. Here is a million dollar question. What is it that makes you like
Korean dramas? For many around here, it is somewhat of a mystery. Well… those
people tend to not watch a lot of Korean dramas. There are a huge section of
those here. A lot of them do watch U.S. shows though.
This is AKIA Talking now from Korea. While being back in Korea, I have been
looking into the Korean drama critical community here which includes blogger
who tend to be shlubs like yours truly. And, to be frank, the community here is
not that large or considerable.

Hello. This is AKIA Talking…
now from Korea. I had done a fan edit of a Korean drama, “I am Legend”, before.
I chose that show because I hated it when I watched it first primarily because
there were a lot of good stuff ruined by very spotty and typical Korean drama
sludge. Here is a link to my review. Also Other stuff below.

resulting product made me appreciate Korean drama writers’ scene composition
ability. Their narrative plot composition ability is another thing.

made me think of 3 things. First, where is the door in the tittle? (LOL)
Second, why is there “Veronica Mars” in
this show? Third, what is the position of the king in old Korea? The first two
were jokes so I passed that for a review I may do about the show if I ever end
up finishing the show. The third question was interesting and thus I am writing
an editorial about it.
This is AKIA Talking now writing from Korea. With all the whoopla about the
movie “Interstellar” by Christopher Nolan, I went to see the movie at its
midnight opening in Korea. And what was my opinion…?
it is an interesting disaster of the movie that, if you are not a student of
film, you may not enjoy seeing. On my part, I enjoyed watching how a renowned
director can totally crash and burn chasing the white dragon that is “2001
