Korea is never a country to be out of the loop on a new trend - how long till there's a push to move from “Korea” to “Hanguk”? #Korea #SouthKorea

Hall of Shame!

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”! 😀

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.

They say they are frequently harassed by parents who sometimes maliciously report them for child abuse, to see them removed from their jobs.

Some say they have been reported for restraining a violent child, or criticised for telling a pupil off.”

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.

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

"Every person who ever bought a Tesla was defrauded."

Via #CoryDoctorow

Investors and fund managers take note: it is quite likely time ⏲️ to sell #TSLA short.

Why? Remember the collapse of #Wirecard? Remember how #Musk managed to annihilate most of #Twitter’s value within just a few months?
Well, this billionaire version of Baron von Münchhausen is about to do it again with #Tesla.

"In #Korea, Tesla was fined millions and #Elon 👉Musk was..."

"You all look alike" may not be politically correct but let's admit it, it's kinda true, especially in the East Asian region. In this video everyone had a challenging time telling which country they belong to. It is sort of like, how do you tell an Italian from A German or Frenchman?

Ps: Their Korean rocks! Wish I could speak it so well.

Paintings of Korean combinis in a more rural setting, by Lee Me Kyeoung, https://leemekyeoung.com via @colossal

Convenience store in #SEA is one of the unknown but great elements for foreigners visiting them. For sure, there are similar stores by purpose most everywhere, but they never (at least in modern times) had such vibes and coziness.

Courtyard formed by the L-shaped building of the combini, with the tree in the center of the yard. There is a yellow low-rise bed under the tree.

Everything is pained very detailed, with the white background to attune it.
Angled view of a one-story combini house, surrounded by a green trees and bushes.

There is a vending machine by the entrance, large pots by the side wall, and the already seen yellow bed in front of the house,
It is another combini house, seen as like you stand right in front of it.
The tree between a viewer and the combini is different, a bit taller and painted at the season of blooming, It is something similar to a cherry tree or sakura, so it is covered with white-pinkish flowers.
And, of course, we see a yellow bed!
