• Summary

  • Two friends casually discuss and review K-Dramas from a leftie politics and historical-societal perspective. Max is a current PhDer in Korean Studies, while Celi holds a Master's in Modern Middle Eastern Studies. They met during a field trip to St Petersburg during their history undergrad and immediately bonded over their shared interest in all things Korean and all things history. There will be much laughter and banter, some legit stanning and swooning over all the gorgeous actors and of course some serious historical, political, societal, and fashion analysis by both of them. Some episodes will feature special guests ranging from music experts giving some analysis on OST and fashion specialists to Marxist economists penetrating through the swoony superstructure. Everything will be addressed and everything will be rooted in a shared and steadfast love for K-Dramas.

    PART 2

    In this episode we are discussing the 2018/19 K-Drama classic Skycastle. Interestingly enough, recent discussions in Korean politics and media focus on the education sector once again, as one politician bribed professors to help his child publish an academic paper that would get her into a good university. One journalist is even using Skycastle as a reference, which highlights the big impact this drama had. In our analysis we focus on the different characters in the ‘castle’ and the education system in Korea but also more in general. Delve into the fascinating world of Skycastle with us. 

    Enjoy everyone!
