Flashback Friday

Wassup party people, it's Friday! Every week I check out the charts for this day in the past and share the top three songs. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, we are going back to the 5th week in July, 2010.

#3 SHINee “Lucifer”
“Lucifier” was the title track from the group’s second full album of the same name. I always forget about this song until I see the styling from this era, and then everything comes back to me lol. The song would peak at #2, and the album would rank in the top ten at the end of the year. Here’s a performance from Music Core. I miss their random outside stages lol.

"Kingdom" screenwriter says Netflix series is all about politics

South Korean screenwriter Kim Eun-hee of Netflix's original Korean series "Kingdom" has said the popular zombie sequel based in medieval Korea boils down to politics.

"Kingdom: Ashin of the North," released last week, is a 92-minute prequel to the global Korean zombie sensation "Kingdom" (2019). The series is the first Korean original drama show produced by Netflix, and released its second season in 2020.

The latest project unfolds through a female warrior named Ashin ― played by actress Jun Ji-hyun ― who is closest to the secret of the resurrection plant, which prompts a mysterious plague that turns people into zombies in Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910).

By putting Jun ― a marginal figure in the hierarchal and male-dominated society ― at the center of the story, Kim thrusts viewers to ask questions on identity, status, politics and the consequences of greed.
