When I went to Japan, I wore a Kimono. When I went to China, I wore a silk outfit too. One day when I go to Korea, I'll wear a Hanbok for sure :D Does that make me racist considering I'm not even Asian? I don't think so, I think it's a way of respecting the culture of the country you're visiting :) And the thing about the Niquab/Burka ... nobody seems to mind when people dress up in Catholic priest or nun outfits, so why worry about Islamic ones? You shouldn't take everything to heart, especially not what you see in Dramaland XD Just saying.
I agree with purplenette. Stereotypes, yeah they're really annoying but what annoys me much more is you misusing the word "racist" (call it the Sociology major in me). No race is being repressed or discriminated in Full House Take 2. It's probably just the stylists getting bored of the other bad outfits you mentioned. Dont take it too seriously and put bad intentions when there were none to begin with.
There are definitely some problematic depictions in this drama. Just because they're subtle and supposedly entertaining does not mean they're any less influential than the more conspicuous forms of racism/cultural appropriation. Choosing to disregard them because they're not "serious enough" or because they're "just entertainment" is ultimately what leads people to become passive and ignorant as they begin to agree with the screwed up portrayals that are presented to them.
P.S. - Congrats on your sociology degree.
Many Asian people don't like it when Americans dress up in their national garb and put on slanty eyes as a Halloween costume or just for fun. They find it offensive, and at the very least, insensitive. I share their sentiments.
Based on ur reasoning should I find it offensive when ppl dress up like a cowboy? Or when ppl wear jeans & t-shirts b/c that is American style clothing. Personally I think this whole discussion is stupid. Y does it make a difference what they wore? The line on what the real problem is has become blurred, & every1 is making this issue bigger than what it has 2 be. IDK y every1 is getting all upset over clothes. Yes they have a meaning behind them, but it only becomes an issue when ppl that don't understand that meaning start making negative comments. & just b/c ppl don't agree or seem to be passive does not make them ignorant. Calling names is just rude & uncalled for.
Usually I really enjoy your reviews, but this time not so much. IT IS A DRAMA...WHY SO SERIOUS??? (reference to your G-Dragon comment). So they put her in a Burka...big f'n deal. Too much nudity??? Not enough nudity!!! Plus No Min Woo and Park Ki Woong are hot in any hair style and color. I thought the music was catchy. So this drama wasn't perfect, but it was cute and funny. The only thing that I can agree with you on is your teddy bear collar comment. It was ugly!!! Is it really racist to wear a Chinese silk mandarin outfit while in China and a Kimono in a Japanese tea house??? I think that is being too sensitive. It isn't like they are purposefully trying to insult people. Get over it. The intent of the drama is to ENTERTAIN!!! and it did so!!!
I totally thought u were attacking Purplenette. I thought u were being very rude toward some1 u don't even know. I personally enjoyed her opinion b/c I felt the same way. Just b/c u don't like the way a person types does not mean u need to take it personal & get all in a huff. Now I am going to make this personal b/c u made the decison to attack some1 just b/c u don't like the way they type their comments. I use lots of capital letters & exclimation points also. R u going to attack me everytime I write my opinion on something just b/c of that??? Just so u know some ppl uses caps or exclimation points alot, but does not mean they r yelling. Some ppl r like that. Call me w/e u want. IDC!!! I will tell u this. Typing is just that typing. Some ppl get in a habit of expressing themselves a certain way & that is just all it is. If u don't like it then don't comment!!!
It seems to me that u like to try & make ppl mad just to start a fight. I have stated my OPINION & now I am done. I think u might want to reevaluate ur own comments to Purplenette & see how u would feel if those same words were said to u. Then u might realize how rude & unkind u were to some1 for stating their opinion. Just saying!!!
I dont want to fight... I never wanted to create a fight, but a discussion. So I am leaving this at that, because if you really believe that I was attacking Purple in an attempt to create havoc on MDL, then there is no need for you to step down to my level by attacking me. No?
I just find ur statements 2 be unkind toward some1 that was just stating an opinion. I personally know Purplenette. She is a very considerate person & never attacks ppl for no reason. That is the only reason I made any comment 2 u in the 1st place. Otherwise I would not give a crap about anything any1 says, b/c I personally believe that confrontation is a waste of time. A person can't really argue w/ some1 when they don't believe they have done anything wrong in the 1st place.
hahahhaha:D you just made my day ^O^ so funny!i was hesitating to watch this because i usually don't like sequel stuff and now i'm sure i won't watch it. and of course park ki wong looks better with black hair!i mean i don't like blond hair with asians anyways, neither guy nor girl. they look best with black hair.
I so freaking agree with you on o everything ... lol I could not stand the bad fashion to the point were I dropped it , but then went back to the show just for the sake of knowing how it will end ....and OMG I had been saying since the beginning that they needed to fired the hair stylist, clothes stylist and choreographer. And it's even more nauseating when you take in consideration the fact that NO Min Woo is in a actual boys band, how weak and bad their singing was. And thank you for pointing out what people have been calling me crazy about when I said that NO Win Woo was just looking way too bony in this drama, the slim pants not faltering !! Park Ki Woong has never been my favorite drama destination but I have to admit that he has good acting chop, but please blond doesn't do it for him.
I really don't get this drama some ppl say its surprisingly funny and entertaining while others say its a disaster.. Don't know if I should try it or not :S
I totally choose Gaksital, plus his character was awesome (though i'm being bias cuz I havent actually seen this show yet :P)
I dont deny his talant, without all this shiny sexyness and charm it must be for him even harder than for others and he still manages give good perfomance. Still he isnt stellar actor bc thous can be ugly like hell but they have skill act himself look charming and handsome and you belive them...
