“All that the fans wish for idols to be is to be happy”
“But within the range of still satisfying the fans’ desires”

Being an idol doesn’t immediately strip that person of their basic individual rights as a human being. i don’t get how most fans in Korea can’t comprehend this??? This is shit you learn throughout your 12 mandatory years of schooling like wtf what do they teach you in ethics classes in Korea? Fucking calculus?? Smh

My Idol: Part Twenty Three

My Idol
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

My Idol is a South Korean competitive reality dating game show. It currently airs on Wednesday nights on Jae-bummer’s blog. First broadcast in 2016, the show offers the opportunity for a lucky fan to go on seven blind dates with seven idols. The idol plans the date with the show throwing in specific missions to complete during the day. At the end of the initial dates, the show opens up an audience vote to decide what three idols will move on to the second date.

One of my favorite things about Sense8 is how they don’t stick to stereotypes the media has about Korean, and really all Asian, women. Often media panders to fetishist by making Asian women submissive, accommodating, and meekly flirtatious. But in Sense8, the South Korean character, Sun Bak, is a business women who is damn good at her job and works hard to try and break the glass ceiling. She was also a champion kick boxer in her youth and kept training in the sport as a passion despite her father’s disapproval. And she is also a ride or die bitch who is extremely loyal and truly kind hearted. In the show there are two very strong built guys, a cop and a gangster who aren’t strangers to a fight, as well as two other men who are also in fit shape, but it is Sun who is always at the forefront of the whoop ass. All the men know that if they’re in trouble, Sun is the one they want to come and help them. She isn’t fetishized. She isn’t weak. Alternatively, she isn’t portrayed as some evil kung fu assassin throwing ninja stars and using katanas and other amalgamations of differing Asian cultures that aren’t specifically from Korea, She’s just a woman who enjoys a sport and is able to utilize it to it’s fullest potential. And it shows how intelligent she is to do so. Yet the show also shows how the patriarchy hinders her from reaching her full potential which makes Sun’s story extremely relatable. Basically Sun Bak deserves so much happiness.  (she also really loves her dog)
