Gov't to build 'Lee Kun-hee museum' in Seoul following major art donation

*a follow up to this post

South Korea on Wednesday unveiled a plan to build a museum dedicated to artworks donated by late Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-hee in the country's capital after months of deliberation on its location.

Under the plan announced during a news conference here, Culture Minister Hwang Hee said the government will consider two sites in central Seoul -- in Jongno and Yongsan wards -- as candidates to build the coveted museum.

The announcement comes after Lee's family and the culture ministry in late April announced the donation of around 23,000 art pieces, including masterpieces by Korean and Western artists, such as Kim Whan-ki, Claude Monet and Salvador Dali. Lee died in October.

Bong Joon Ho says "Parasite" US Series is not a remake

Bong Joon Ho made his return to the Cannes Film Festival for a career-spanning masterclass, two years after he became the first South Korean director to win the Palme d’Or thanks to “Parasite.” Bong spent much of quarantine last year working with fellow writer-director Adam McKay on adapting “Parasite” into a television series. McKay confirmed in April the series is not a remake but an original story set within the same universe as the film.

“‘Parasite’ is a film on wealthy and poor families, and that is a problem everywhere,” Bong said at Cannes. “[The television series] will be something of great genius, I hope. I worked with Adam McKay and he’s figuring out the scenario. We’re going to do it in the United States.”

“The subject continues to have resonance in France and elsewhere,” Bong continued. “Many of [us] would like to be rich, but I think in all of us there is a fear of becoming poor. I’m involved in the HBO adaptation [of ‘Parasite’]. It will be a black comedy. I’m working in close cooperation with screenwriter McKay. This time I’m giving my input as a producer.”

What's your verdict, Omona? Is Jhope a fashionista or a fashion victim? And what are your favorite (or worst!) double denim looks on idols, omona?

I'm curious to hear if any omonians a) are watching and b) what they think so far lol, ya'll know I have my gripes about kdramas! Also I'm still in the process of watching ep2 lol

Apparently the script writer used to be a judge, so that should give some credibility in this theme? Tho lemme tell you, that trial in the 1st ep got me so damn annoyed, tho maybe it's meant to raise those emotions lol
