“Misaeng” keeps knocking me out with it’s weekly offerings of great acting performances, tight writing, lovely shots and editing, and heartwarming stories about characters we’ve grown to really care about. This week at the office was a tough one for everyone – Young Yi is still dealing with being on a team that abuses and under-appreciates her, Baek Ki has second thoughts about staying at One International, and Sales Team 3 keeps getting dealt blow after disappointing blow. It’s a cut-throat world of business out there, and the biggest question of the week was “when is it too much?”
In a drama like “Misaeng,” it’s difficult to pick out just five moments that I loved this week, but here are the ones that stood out slightly above the rest.
If you ever wished you had a handy guide to K-Pop, a textbook for a “K-Pop 101″ if you will, then you’ll want to grab a copy of the new book, “K-Pop Now: The Korean Music Revolution.” Whether you’re new to K-Pop and could use an easy yet thorough guidebook or you’re a K-Pop veteran who needs help explaining to friends and family what K-Pop is and how awesome it is, “K-Pop Now” would be your go-to book.
“K-Pop Now” was written by Mark James Russell, a writer and K-Pop specialist who has written about the subject for Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter, among other publications. With his extensive connections and experience in the Korean music scene, Mark Russell is a reliable authority on what was, is, and will become K-Pop.
The book is full of useful information about K-Pop, and it features 34+ artists (males groups, female groups, and solo artists)
