Korean Drama

Netflix and Amazon Prime are serious impediments to productivity.

I watched Parasite a month or so ago. I really enjoyed it. One of the themes of the movie is social inequality and the lack of ability to move up in status / income.
It’s interesting that Korea’s income distribution is not too different to America’s.
But you always hear Americans talk about “pulling yourself up by your bootstraps” whereas in Korean films this is not that common.

It does have Song Kang-ho in it as did 2017’s A Taxi Driver which I also liked. I will watch anything with Song Kang-Ho in it.

The Fiery Priest

It consisted of twenty 50 minute episodes. It is a typical Korean drama involving the heroes fighting corruption, but it is very slapstick.

They should have cut back on some of the slapstick because at times it became very annoying, but overall a Solid B, but not worth a repeat watch.

Ssongsak and Yo Han, two of my favourite characters

Priest Kim and Detective Goo
