I Killed My Mother (Xavier Dolan, 2009)
everybody needs to watch his movies especially les amours imaginaires
The year is 2540, a student in history class notices something off about his textbook. “How come these textbooks skip the years 1990 through 1999?” The teacher puts his air-marker down on the table, lowers his head, and sighs. “Because…” he lifts his head, a single tear rolls down his cheek, “… only 90’s kids remember the 90’s”

I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.

"why do non korean want to wear hanbok? only korean should wear"
I don’t feel comfortable speaking for others, since I myself never had a particular wish to wear hanbok, not that I can remember anyway.
But my guess would be that people have different reasons. Maybe they saw it in a favorite drama and it got their imagination going. Maybe it reminds them of someone they love.
But I find quite silly this notion that the style of dead plant and insect secretions that we wrap our bodies in is dictated by the randomly assigned geographical location we were born in.
There used to be a law in Korea that said commoners were not allowed to wear hanboks made of any material more fine than cotton. We see now how wrong it is to limit human expression by their social status. Haven’t we reached the same conclusions about nationality yet?
