Max Checks Out The K-Videos

Max the Furbeast decided he wanted to stop by the Pagoda Hotel and see if a fish food treat might be cadged from Uncle Fish.

Along the way we passed our favorite Korean video shop and paused to see what new releases were available.

Doesn't this poster just radiate love? Especially the vampire-like dude going after the young girl's wrist.

The Discovery of Love looked promising. Clearly these young people were enthralled with the notion of romance. It shows in their beatific expressions. Ah, young love, so sweet and yet so hard on the ears.

Blade Man, on the other hand, looked as if he needed more instructions in the careful use of his blades. Perhaps Bandage Man would have been a better title.

Somebody needs to tell Blade Man that he needs some career counseling.

No worries. Uncle Fish was finally located and some tasty fish protein was scored by the little white dog.

Max can track down Uncle Fish even in the the maintenance areas of the Pagoda Hotel.

    1. There frequently seems a disconnect between the movie title and the scene on the posters. There was one titled “Jekyll & Hyde” and it featured two adorable babies. But, yeah, when it comes to Uncle Fish, Max is definitely in love.

  1. Jekyll and Hyde featuring two babies? Must have been made by a parent.
    Nicolas Freeling frequently used a quote…’enter the baby, falsely genial in a knitted jacket’….but he was an author rather than a film maker…

    Delighted to see Max back on his regular rounds…all these sacrificial sites may have been worrying him.

    1. These posters at least have English subtitles no matter how obscure. There are a whole series of Korean-only posters that defy interpretation but all seem to incorporate a high level of personal aggression among Korean youth. There is also a huge trade in “soft-X” videos that are very explicit and strictly adult-only.

    1. It is certainly hard on one’s ears. I wonder why they are grabbing each other by the ear and biting? If you happen to be in downtown Pusan and a Korean sidles up and whispers “I love you” I suggest you cover your ears and run like the wind.

  2. Those posters give me the creepy crawlies. So, just to sum up, Uncle Fish is not really a fish nor an uncle. He is a fish whisperer at a hotel–because the hotel industry demands fish wranglers–who also keeps a stash of koi food on hand should errant dogs traipse into said hotel. And Max takes full advantage of this.

  3. When we visit Taiwan, I actually enjoy watching the soap operas (when we have the two seconds of down-time we’re allowed by our hosts!) I didn’t anything could be more over the top than telenovelas, but the Chinese manage to pull it off. I can only assume the Koreans are right up there with them.
