"Meeting You" creator on his controversial show

If a parent had the chance to meet their deceased child through virtual reality, would they?

A tearful "reunion" between a mother and a virtual recreation of her daughter, who died at the age of 7 in 2016, has brought an outpouring of emotional reactions since the documentary "Meeting You" was aired on Feb. 6.

While some people praise the "creative" use of the new technology, others criticize it for being "emotionally manipulative."

In a recent interview with The Korea Times, Kim Jong-woo said he was glad his show opened up such dialogue.

I don't know if the videos need a TW, but I know it could be emotional to watch. What do you think, Omona? On one hand I understand the criticism, but I am also not a grieving mother trying to heal.

Trot music popular among candidates for campaign songs

If you walked down the street during the general election campaign, you would probably have heard songs that are both addictive and rhythmic with catchy campaign phrases. They instantly grab people's attention.

These are "trot" songs. Unlike in previous elections, trot was a popular choice for campaign songs this year.

Many candidates on the main opposition United Future Party's (UFP) ticket used the songs on their campaigns to appeal to the hearts and minds of voters.

Earlier in March, the UFP unveiled a list of songs that it recommended its candidates to use to woo voters. Six out of the 11 on the list were trot.

They included Youngtak's "Jjiniya," TV personality Yoo Jae-suk's "Redevelopment of Love," and Park Sang-chul's "Mujogeon," which means unconditionally.
