Itaewon Class is problematically titled. It’s not your regular high school teenage love story but a rather serious drama that portrays power struggle amidst diversity, prejudice, and discrimination. But what really troubled me all through its sixteen episodes is the battle for the leading lady role. At first glance, it’s easy to spot Cho Yi-seo as the main lead of Itaewon Class. However, there is an overlapping build-up of emotion towards her and Saeroyi’s first love, Soo Ah. Which gets me asking: who really is the second lead of this drama?
Once upon a time, my boss told me that I need an alpha to tame me so that I could get married. I believe otherwise. I don’t need an alpha. In a world of patriarchs, it’s difficult to be a woman. But this drama pointed out how a single woman could create ripples into others. To empower others to makes choices for themselves – to choose themselves first – denying society of what it wants to dictate. The World of Married Couple helps us reevaluate the women around us, the decisions that they have to make, and the struggles they silently battled with.
Ang Huling El Bimbo tells the timeless tragic story of the song itself made relevant with socio-political issues chronicled through the cleverly pieced together tunes of Eraserheads. It follows the joyful years of four friends – Joy, Hector, Anthony, and Emman – back in college and the ugly and unresolved issues they had over the years.
Tokyo Ghoul became such a massive hit that in three years after it was adapted as an animated series, it was released as a live-action film. Yet it took another three years before I got to watch it – probably even more if quarantine didn’t happen.
At this time and age, when everything must be driven by logic and common sense, it is rather difficult to fathom Jeong-ho and his decisions. You’ll never understand passion unless you have. How many Jeong-ho’s have been forsaken by society just because they don’t adhere to the constrained standards of success? Artists. Musicians. Poets. Writers. Performers. Even professionals who are having a hard time growing because their ideas are rather off than the rest. Visionaries. People who do otherwise of the bandwagon.
