Blackface Is Still Racist and Wrong. Yes, Even In Korea

Another incident of blackface happened on SNL Korea; this time A Pink’s Bomi played the role of Michol from the 1983 cartoon, Dooly the Dinosaur. The task of explaining how blackface fits into a global system of white supremacy is a taxing experience in itself.

Whenever these conversations emerge, I remember a quote from Toni Morrison:

“The function, the very serious function of racism is distraction. It keeps you from doing your work. It keeps you explaining, over and over again, your reason for being. Somebody says you have no language and you spend twenty years proving that you do. Somebody says your head isn’t shaped properly so you have scientists working on the fact that it is. Somebody says you have no art, so you dredge that up. Somebody says you have no kingdoms, so you dredge that up. None of this is necessary. There will always be one more thing.”   Toni Morrison

Fans Go Crazy Over The Bromance Between Two Of The Handsomest Idols In Korea

Yoo Seung Ho and Infinite’s L, two amazingly handsome men, have a budding bromance going on as they film their new drama!

The two actors will be in Monarch Owner of the Mask, which will be premiered in May, following the conclusion of the drama Radiant Office. They are playing different characters with completely different circumstances, one being the crown prince (Yoo Seung Ho) and the other being a man of low social status (L). However, they both share the same name Lee Sun.

The atmosphere of the filming was bright, as Yoo Seung Ho and L enthusiastically greeted one another. They talked and analyzed the script together, which helped relieve of their nerves.

Korea to Lure More Skilled Foreign Workers

The government will ease visa regulations and work permits for foreigners to lure more skilled workers to Korea. The measures will be implemented in the second half of this year.

So far visas were only granted to the skilled workers themselves, their spouse and children, but now the parents of the couple can also get them.

The scope of employment options available to foreign students who study science and engineering here will be significantly expanded. Currently they often do odd jobs as bit-part actors on TV shows, English teachers or translators, but under the plan they can go into any profession except manual labor.
