to everyone's tbh

Tbh while everyone is touching on the racial issues with netflix’s death note already fairly well, can I address the fact that casting the greasiest looking sad boy they could find as Light also shows like…… a lack of understanding of Light as a character?? Light in the manga was by Japanese standards an upstanding young man. He was in school and doing very very well, he showed interest in going to a promising university and pretty much excelled in anything academic with flying colours, and he was very handsome on top of it (objectively at least, he’s supposed to be. Misa remarks this when first meeting him, and the romantic interest of other beautiful women and his popularity at school suggests it).

He presents himself as completely 100% conforming and is over all what all the hot topic teens who love death note so much would utterly loathe in reality. Light is the “voted most popular, most likely to succeed, high school success story”, he just turned out to be a sociopath with a deadly ego and a god complex, which is the twist revealed at the end of the first volume! (Like this was pulled off so so so well the more I think about it. For the entire first volume he comes off as a rising hero until literally the very last few pages where he finally says his intentions out loud and there’s such an emotionally jarring mood shift and the reader has an “Oh wow nevermind, he’s crazy.” moment. Like EVEN THE READER is tricked into believing he’s nice!!!)

His appearance is also a very important part of why nobody ever suspects him, or despite piling evidence is even RELUCTANT to suspect him. This is supposed to lend itself to Light as a tool too. Light is totally aware of how he’s perceived, thus the fake persona he seems to put on in front of L and other detectives of a wide eyed, confused, innocent.

Making Light visually look like the emo “I hate you dad” teen trope is I guess an effort to grab at death notes biggest fan demographic, but ultimately I feel will fall flat. It’s the same issue film adaptions of Dorian Gray have where Dorian Gray is supposed to be a rosy cheeked, golden haired, cherub of a man because it’s poignant and ironic considering his crimes, but is continually portrayed as handsome but gaunt and dreary looking because its the easiest and most uncreative way to portray his personality to viewers without having to actually write him well.

During 피 땀 눈물 Yoongi held out his mic during his part in the first verse and all of the fans rapped his part and I’m still so amazed??? Rapping in korean is difficult and korean pronunciation can be a difficult thing and yet Yoongi had so much confidence that we knew his part and there was no awkward silence in the arena. Everyone was screaming out his lyrics and it was just another reminder that language doesn’t matter when it comes to music
