We love ajummas


Researching for school can net me some awesome finds like this article, How to rock Ajumma style  from Han Cinema (which, btw, is a great source for reading about, well, Han Cinema):

 

These ladies are totally endearing and funny on a good day and really really scary on a bad day, but at the end of the day you have to respect them for all the sacrifice and suffering they’ve been through.

Speaking of suffering, I saw the most horrifically brutal and violent movie against women I’ve ever seen the other day.  It was so bad I couldn’t stand to keep watching it.  But I looked it up and read that the protagonist gets her revenge.  If you’ve got the stomach for it, it gives a glimpse of patriarchal society at its extreme exaggerated worst.  The whole thing is on youtube…I may never finish watching it, as it will keep me awake at nights, but maybe you’re stronger than me.
