Felt nostalgic and started watching M*A*S*H. You’d never know it was set in the Korean war, if they didn’t keep mentioning it, seeing as there are almost no Koreans in it. Only pic of a Korean I found

    Oh, Mash is my childhood… We used to watch together with my family.
    But I’m pretty sure there were more Koreans in it. Some soldiers, some children… Just don’t know where. πŸ˜›

      Sure there were some, but that was literally the only pic I could find of a Korean in it πŸ˜€
      Interesting time period though, would be cool to see a Korean drama set in that time. Maybe a Korean Remake.

        Maybe it is a sensitive topic for Koreans? I don’t really know, but war between Koreas doesn’t sound like a safe topic.
        Anyways, it would be interesting… But I’m not sure I would watch it, I am too attached to the original. πŸ˜›

          I don’t buy that. They keep using the separation in a LOT of shows, but I guess war dramas aren’t that popular (apart from DSOTS-but that was more of a lovestory).
          I would watch it, but would probably bemoan the absence of Alan Alda. Still have the biggest crush on Hawkeye. LOVE this character and his blue eyes.

            Well, I haven’t been in dramaworld that long, so… I guess I might be wrong. πŸ˜›
            And yes, Hawkey… And all of them. So precious, so memorable, so raw and real.

    I love MASH. I am a little ashamed to admit that just about everything I knew about Korea before I discovered dramas and fell down the rabbithole came from MASH. Which, as you say, is next to nothing. 😳

    Ah well, am correcting that lack now.

      Same here πŸ˜€ But I guess we are both busy studying the culture and history now, better late than never ;P

        Exactly! And having way too mush fun doing it! (I find myself googling things after every episode of 7DQ, trying to figure out how much is historically accurate and how much is artistic license. And getting miffed that there still isn’t any more info out there than there was last week.)

          Googling historic facts always cuts both ways. It is super interesting to learn more about history and what really happened, but at the same time real life usually ends in tragedy and I get bummed out.
