Korean Drama "Pinocchio" Episode 3 Recap


Korean Drama “Pinocchio” Episode 3 Recap by joonni

The sun is streaming into Dal Po’s room, who is still sleeping. A woman’s voice calls him, calling him Ha Myung and telling him to get up and come eat. Dal Po first whines for a few minutes more of sleep but then jumps up in his bed- “Mom?” He rushes out and he can’t believe his eyes. It’s his mom and dad in the kitchen- his dad telling tales of his latest heroic deed and his mom listening faithfully. His brother in the house, too, putting on his suit. His face is hidden to Dal Po, however, just at an angle away from a full facial view.

U.S. director puts innovative spin on "Chunhyang"

U.S. director puts innovative spin on

Pansori singer Min Eun-kyung is one of three performers cast as Chunhyang, the lead female character in “Different Chunhyang”. Provided by the National Changgeuk Company

There are so many performances based on “Chunhyang”, one of the best-known Korean folk tales, that audiences are beginning to grow tired of it. Nevertheless, when Kim Seong-nyeo, the artistic director of the National Changgeuk Company, asked Romanian-born U.S. director Andrei Serban to recreate “Heungbuga”, one of Korea”s five surviving pansori (traditional narrative singing) tales, Serban picked “Chunhyangga” instead, insisting that he could create an alternative version. The upcoming performance by the National Changgeuk Company is titled “Different Chunghyang” as a result. When Kim took the position as artistic director of the National Changgeuk Company in 2012, one of her pledges was to revive the five surviving pansori tales of Korea – “Chunghyangga”, “Heungbuga”, “Simcheongga”, “Jeokbyeokga” and “Sugungga” – from the perspective of the “world masters” in an effort to take changgeuk, or the traditional Korean opera performed with pansori, to the international stage.

5. Surviving the K-popcalypse

We should’ve known that 2014 was going to be a rocky year for K-pop when on the first day of the year Lee Seung-gi and SNSD‘s  Yoona were revealed to be dating. It was a rough year for Korea’s premiere girl group as soon after Sooyoung and actor Jung Kyung-ho, Tiffany and 2PM‘s Nichkhun and leader Taeyeon and Exo‘s Baek-hyun were all also revealed to be dating. Hyoyeon was charged with assault by her ex-boyfriend, and then the unthinkable–Jessica was booted from Girls Generation.

at the Vampire Trope

Korea Has Its Own Take at the Vampire Trope Written via Sarah On October 20, 2015

The Vampire is one of the vital maximum iconic supernatural creatures in many human cultures, and in fresh years South Korean culture has offered many in their own takes at the bloodsucker. The currently popular Scholar Who Walks the Night, which just wrapped, is the latest edition and, in fact, the maximum at the get began Korean edition of the vampire.

The creatures will have grow to be more popular in South Korean culture in the wake of american blockbusters like Twilight and Anne Rice’s older Interview with a Vampire series, yet they are very prevalent nowadays and it’s miles going to marvel you to be informed that Korea has no local vampiric tradition. The Korean vampires we see in today’s dramas and movies appear to resemble a go between the Eu vampire who is repelled via garlic and holy water and the hopping, zombie-like Chinese jiang shi.
