the other day work finished much, much later than usual but it was okay because i sensed this at about 3:30pm and caught the latter half of robbie buck’s 「the inside sleeve」 through my earphones on radio national, then when i was tidying up after finishing work i had a moment to see steve cannane presenting 「the drum」 on the office kitchen tv, and then i got home and caught up with the first two episodes of 「the checkout」. thank goodness for ex-triple j presenters; evidently they help me get through life.

years before the term ‘hallyu’ had even been invented, lee byung-hun was majoring in french literature.

years before the non-korean world realised how to pronounce the ‘hye’ in song hye kyo, lee byung-hun had already broken up with her.

years before dae jang geum first went to air, lee byung-hun had already starred with lee young-ae in what remains one of the highest grossing films in korean cinematic history.

if the korean wave is about the general global popularisation of all things korean, let’s please make lee byung-hun an ambassador thereof; but if not, as i suspect is the case, then let’s put him in a class of his own.

maybe together with rain.
