It took me 126 hours and 24 minutes in order to complete my video game
and I have thus far resisted the urge to immediately begin a New Game+, so I should soon be returning to kdramas. In the meantime, here are some things that have happened in the last week:
- Lifting the Sewol Ferry: “Jacket found belonging to one of Sewol victims.”
- “Spouses run together for presidency.” I am reminded of The K2.
- “This year’s Children’s Day could be most profitable ever.” Good luck, retailers.
- “Samsung chairman richest Korean for 9 straight years.” His three living children are also on the list (with a noticeable wealth gap between the son and the two daughters).
- “Trump sends South Korea a $1 billion invoice for THAAD” and “With US seeking payment for THAAD, locals ask ‘Is South Korea a colony?'” BRB, headdesking.
- “Presidential candidates evasive on issue of LGBT rights.” LGBT rights groups are understandably not impressed.
- “Jobless college graduates surpass 500,000.” The unemployment rate has gone up 1.2% over last year.
- “Olympics face massive accommodation dearth.” Are we going to see another nightmare-plagued Olympics?
- “Cha Seung Won to return to the small screen for the first time in two years.” The article neglects to say what drama it is, but it is allegedly airing December or January.
- “Announcing the winners of the 5th Annual DramaFever Awards!” The winners are basically who you would expect, so.
- “JTBC Drama ‘Man To Man’ Experiences Sharp Drop In Ratings.” Uh-oh.
- “‘Mystery Queen’ Successfully Maintains Top Spot In Viewership Ratings.” They’re at 10.7%.
- “Lee Kwang Soo Confirmed For Role In New Action Comedy Movie.” It’s the sequel to Accidental Detective.
- “Go Ara To Possibly Return To Small Screen In Lead Role Opposite Seo Kang Joon.” Oooh. This could be an interesting show.
