Regular readers, and both of you know who you are, will remember that Max is fascinated with Korean movie posters and their depiction of life and love in the land below Dear Leader.
Today, our morning constitutional took us past our favorite Korean video shop so of course we took a moment to review the latest offerings.
It’s not easy being a Korean in love. Here we have a flick titled “Divorce Lawyer in Love”. The poster shows a spunky lass strangling her beau with his necktie while both grin like a cross between Charles Manson and the Cheshire Cat.
This begs the question of why anyone would pay good money to see a rom-com about a divorce lawyer. I’d rather eat glass but, hey, that’s just me.
Next is a puzzler. “A Girl Who Sees Smells.” I hope for her sake she doesn’t see me too soon after the chipotle deviled eggs. That would be something to see all right. I wonder what other mixed martial senses she can muster? Can she touch sounds? She smells sea shells… whatever.
“The Man in the Mask” is facing some relationship problems, too, what with the sleeper hold that the K-chick has lodged on his wind pipe. I don’t know what the question in Korean means but my guess is something like “Can you still breathe? Pity.”
But nothing is as scary as “Unkind Ladies” and no, I am not referring to some of the blogstresses that visit this silly dog chronicle. These are really mean Mamas. Calling them “unkind” does not do them justice.
Concluding that these folks are just a tad strange, Max shakes his little furry white head and wanders along. Just another slice of life in the K Streets. Watch out for the Korean ladies in love.
