The Handmaiden (2016)

Just finished watching the 2016 Korean film The Handmaiden.
It is a beautiful film to watch and the soundtrack is very well done, particularly: IMI ONEUN SORI (임이 오는 소리) The Sound Of You Coming

The Sound Of You Coming from The Handmaiden (2016) film

IMI ONEUN SORI (임이 오는 소리) The Sound Of You Coming

(Gain)
Like the sound of you coming
I hear something from somewhere
A sound that pinches my heart
(Gain)
임이 오는 소리 같이
어디서 들리는 소리
내 가슴을 조이는 그 소리
(Minseo & Gain)
But you’re not coming, even when the night passes
My sad heart doesn’t know how to stop
Just waiting for the sound of you to come
Just waiting for the sound of you to come
(Minseo & Gain)
그러나 오지 않네 이 밤이 지나도록
안타까운 내 마음은 그칠 줄 모르고
임이 오는 소리만 기다려져
임이 오는 소리만 기다려져
(Minseo)
In my waiting heart
Joy overflows
You have found me, you’re coming over there
(Minseo)
기다리는 내 마음에
기쁨이 넘쳐 흘러라
그대 나를 찾아서 저기 오네
(Minseo & Gain)
Holding onto blue dreams, holding onto happiness
My heart that is waiting is blooming
Hurry and come, I’ve been waiting
Let’s dream a happy dream, just like long ago
(Minseo & Gain)
푸른 꿈 가득 안고 행복을 가득 안고
기다리는 내 마음에 꽃을 피우네
어서 와요 그대여 기다렸어요
행복한 꿈을 꿔요 옛날 같이
Holding onto blue dreams, holding onto happiness
My heart that is waiting is blooming
푸른 꿈 가득 안고 행복을 가득 안고
기다리는 내 마음에 꽃을 피우네
Just waiting for the sound of you to come
Just waiting for the sound of you to come
임이 오는 소리만 기다려져
임이 오는 소리만 기다려져

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

Kingdom

Season two of Kingdom just popped up on my Netflix viewing list.

Love the show, what’s not to like

– Korean period drama
– Zombies (nearly as good as Train to Busan)
– A great cast including Bae Doona, one of my favourite Korean actors.

K-Drama

Been watch a few Korean dramas lately.

 Live 라이브 poster

Firstly, Live 라이브, an 18 episode show about Police

Kingdom킹덤 poster

The second drama, Kingdom킹덤 is a mix of Korean period drama (good) and a zombie movie (very good … seen Train to Busan?)
It has Bae Doonna in it. Season One was worth the time, can’t wait for season two.

Stranger 비밀의 poster

The last drama also stars Bae Doonna and is called Stranger 비밀의

More Bike Porn

2009-10-01 - Toechon to Yeoju 07

The second day of my cycle tour involved a few hill climbs. I imaged cycling to the top and then having a rest.
In reality I walked to the top and had a rest or two.

Mogi Man

The Korean word for Mosquito is “mogi”
You will often see this happen in Korea.
The Korean government say they have eliminated Malaria from Korea. This is one of the ways they do so. Every street is visited by a car or scooter in this case spewing out a cloud of mosquito poison.
Often you will see kids running behind this very same cloud.
