Renaming countries English language names is all the rage - and comes with a sassy touch of nationalism. India to Bharat; Turkey to Türkiye; Czech Republic to Czechia; New Zealand to Aotearoa.

Remember that curious combination of Capra and Chan (see https://mastodon.social/@Copiers/110868409350130330) Bollywood came up with? 😀
That "film" got a sequel in 2015, and the sequel also strove hard to uphold Bollywood's enduring legacy of plagiarism. 😀 It achieved this by literally cloning a 2006 Korean movie! 😀
And just like it did with the first “film”, Bollywood again misspelt the title by adding an extra letter: note the extra “i” in “bling”! 😀
In contrast, Chinese spending on Korean platforms hit a historic low, signaling a major shift in global #trade trends.

Ofcourse I saw a lot in my youth.
And modern too.
Korea became my virtual center for Asia in 2009. Mainly Kdrama, but also Japan and China.
Only last few years I discovered how Japan influenced the great classic players like Charly Chaplin , Mary Pickford e.o.
Ancient Japanese and Korea theater-styles in film !
Only now I see the resemblances between them.
Well, long way to go !🙂

Past Lives, written and directed by Celine Song and starring Greta Lee, Teo Yoo, and John Magaro. The Korean concept of inyeon (인연) is presented in a brilliant and beautiful film that will stick with me for a while. Na Young (Nora), Hae Sung, and Arthur are all so real. Full of love, emotion, longing, and nostaglic memories.

Yeah, based on what my English students have said, as well as information I've gathered, #CyclingCulture is a much bigger thing In #Colombia than in most places. It's a moot point really because I've reached an age where I'm not really comfortable sharing my cycling space with fast-moving vehicles. The ideal spot I visited was #JejuIsland in #Korea where there were fully-separated bike lanes around the island and little villages/businesses every 10K or so. Also, a $1 bus!

"It's called the forgotten war, but I think the US would rather us forget it, because its involvement in that war was just genocide."
Today in Labor History September 18, 1931: The Korean People's Association in Manchuria was dissolved by the Japanese, after they invaded and established a dictatorship over the anarchist autonomous zone. Two million Korean migrants lived in the autonomous zone, after having fled Korea in the wake of the Donghak Peasant Revolution of 1894 and subsequent Japanese invasion. Their commune was built upon the principles of stateless communism and mutual aid.

But it is not just the music either.
I have noticed a lot more TV shows and movies suggested through streaming services.
For example, without signing in, using a fresh web browser without any browser history or cookies, on a freshly installed copy of Linux, with nothing to associate or establish viewing taste, Korean TV is recommended.
A family member, brought it to my attention, that even the food I was eating, turns out is imported from Korea. —It was good.
South Korea has become relatively big in America.
It has been years since I turned on a radio (a real radio and not a streaming service). K-pop was playing on it. It was an older song, but it was still playing along with all the other hits.
It's not the first time either.
I have occasionally heard a song via streaming, but always assumed it was suggested through the service. It is something different when it plays organically in the wild on a live radio station

Omg don't get me started with the 101 ways we call aunt and uncle in Hokkien. I could NEVER remember which one to use.
Aunt: Tua Ee, (insert number) ee, a-Kim, etc
Uncle: A-pek, a-tiao, kuku, a-chek etc
What we call them depends on whether they belong to the paternal or maternal side, and also by their seniority in the family. (for eg eldest to youngest).
This won't be solved by anything other than radical change to work culture, education, and overall societal values. Which won't happen. Really sad to watch.
