Gyopo TV

October 2, 2006

Yesterday my father was watching Korean television during my brief homecoming and it’s hilarious — the local tv ads are not polished in a national corporate PR/Marketing sort of way but rather in a badly lit amateur amagalm of English and Korean made on your home computer kind of way. They often use the token white person to say affirming things about the products. Or sometimes they just have the white person in a consumer situation abruptly really happy with the product; it’s so funny. The suburbs are so multicultural (and that’s also, btw, why we keep you white people around — you’re so affirming.)
