    This song from the Pretenders' new album Alone reminds me of the "audacity of hope" era...


    I've never really listened to any Pretenders but the first song of theirs which came to mind was Don't Get Me Wrong. Apart from Brass in Pocket and Back on the Chain Gang I couldn't name another song of theirs which suggests that these are the 3 biggies.

    Completely uninformed speculation, but I'll venture that k-drama bears about the same relationship to real daily life in Korea as telenovelas do to real daily life in hispanic countries.

    I admit, as a guy, I sometimes enjoy watching these shows

    Which dramas are you watching? I've not seen any k-drama at all, but I've watched a small amount of Taiwanese drama, and I can't imagine the stuff I've seen is very close to real life (well, Crystal Boys, perhaps, but it's pretty prestige compared to something like Fall in Love with Me).

    [Incidentally, I was at a conference just last year where a paper was presented arguing that the popularity of k-drama is increasing American interest in Korean culture, and when I asked a similar question the answer I got was...vague and unsatisfactory]

    I am watching Innocent Defendant. Basically ,Kdrama are consumed by women. These are modern day fairy tales.

     And Taiwanese drama is more close to real life . it's also a common accepted reason. 

  6. When I was in middle school, I was drawing cartoons. Mostly Dragon Ball. I did not have a camera nor were cell phones invented yet, thus I was not able to save photos of those drawings. I didn't know it at the time, but drawing cartoons was a good progression to learning how to draw. It makes you focus on proportions and line weight. It also is good practice learning to draw free-hand. I learned all that before I learned how to shade. Now that I can add light and shadow, my drawings went from cartoon to realistic looking.
