“My Sassy Girl”
“2 Ton Beauty”
“Kick the Moon”
“My Wife is a Gangster”
If you ask any asian person, they will tell you that they have either seen or heard of at least one of these movies. With over 10,852,845 views in the world, My Sassy Girl is arguably the most popular Korean film worldwide. Why is this? How does a Korean film make its way across the Atlantic Ocean and into homes around the world? The same way that globalization has made Harry Potter Series the third most popular movie series in Korea.
Asians like other asians. They will never tell it to you though. They don’t care who made it or what race they are. All they care about is the fact that it is in fact an Asian product. Michelle Kwan, an American born figure skater. However, she is loved by millions of Asians around the world because she is in fact an Asian product. Asians have created a special system of work allocation. The Chinese are responsible for crappy products and martial arts action films. Koreans have cornered the market on cell phones, televisions, and heart-warming dramas. The Japanese pretty much own the world of tomorrow with their fuel-efficient cars and tiny gizmos. The others (Vietnamese) are responsible for manufacturing clothes and shoes.
Knowing this, the next time you need a good or product, ask your racially enabled friends. They are naturally experts, and are able to tell you about their country’s product(s). Need a phone? Need clothes or shoes? Ask about any asian. However, if you need a 3 hour long “heart-throbbingly” good movie to get your mind off of your problems, simply say, “My Sassy Girl” in a crowd of Asians, and a they will all offer you their copy.
