Korean title: 사랑의 불시착

“… I’ve never loved anyone. Until you crash landed into my world…”

This romantic drama follows the story of Yoon Seri, a wealthy heiress who goes paragliding. However, due to a natural disaster, she lands in her country’s opposing half: North Korea, and goes missing. While dangling in her paraglider hanging from a tree, she encounters Ri Jeong Hyeok…

Whenever we think of the word ‘fiction’, we instantly relate it to the imagination. It exists only in our minds — a conjured up world that you would never see in real life. And when we think of the word ‘fact’, we instantly relate it to truth. However, people seem to fail to acknowledge that facts are present within fiction, and fiction may stem from factual information.

When we go about our daily lives, we experience the things life throws at us and these experiences could be the root of a fictional story, a game, or even a movie. …

This was quoted by Francis Bacon in his book ‘Meditationes Sacrae and Human Philosophy’ during 1597, but is rooted from a proverb in Sanskrit — an ancient Indian language¹.

“There is no comparison between a king and a scholar, as the king is celebrated only in his country, whereas, a scholar is celebrated everywhere.”²

These words contain the meaning that “knowledge is more powerful than physical strength and no great work can be done without knowledge.”³ Knowledge is indeed powerful, and people are able to achieve their goals and outstanding results by using knowledge — if one aimed to become…

Almost everyone has at least seen one or two zombie movies, and almost everyone has seen the Walking Dead, or at least watched a few seasons, or maybe even caught up to the latest one. Since I’m a big fan of zombie-apocalyptic movies, I had to give this one a go, and I wasn’t disappointed.

Zombie movies usually contain that post-apocalyptic plot we, as watchers, are all too familiar with: a world littered with the undead after some sort of outbreak or an epidemic.

Although ‘Train to Busan’ is no different in terms of the all too familiar outbreak plot…

“A type of yellow journalism or propaganda that consists of deliberate disinformation or hoaxes spread via traditional print and broadcast news media or online social media.”¹

With more and more scandalous stories surfacing in the entertainment industry and the constant rise of social media, it’s not a shock that among the glitz and glamour, fake news is present.

Fake news is not a stranger to being spread, either by word of mouth or through social media posts. …

When there’s racism, there’s also colourism.

This might be an unfamiliar term, but for those who have experienced it, it’s a term they know very well.

Colourism: “Prejudice or discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone, typically among people of the same ethnic or racial group.”¹ In other words, those with a lighter skin tone tend to be more favoured than those whose skin colour is darker.

Some call it ‘light-skin privilege’.

According to the British Top 40 chart of 2017, 17 out of 68 female solo artists were of black heritage, but the majority of these female artists…

And it disappoints me.

When you look up the meaning of ‘sex sells’, you’ll instantly shake your head, unless you support its premise.

“Sex in advertising is the use of sex appeal to help sell a particular product or service.”¹


In this day and age, people are easily swayed by a little bit of skin popping out from underneath clothing. I hate to say this, but the majority of people seem to always be in awe of the washboard abs adorning males and females’ bodies. …

Let’s forget about the queen and the royal family, the true ruler of the world right now contains two words and four syllables: social media.

With most of the population owning smartphones and having social media accounts, it’s not a surprise that the first thing an individual checks when they wake up is either Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or all of them, as well as other unknown social media platforms hidden under our noses.

As of 2017, the most popular social media site was Facebook with 2.47 billion users, but other sites weren’t far off from overthrowing Facebook’s reign. YouTube…

Independence is something we crave at a very young age. Children usually can’t wait to grow up and become an adult, but now that I’m one, I’m craving a little trip down toddler lane and I’m tempted to stay there.

On the 15th of September 2018, I found myself lugging multiple bin bags with multiple shoes and plushies inside across the ground. Shoulders aching from the weight of my laptop bag, I made it into my accommodation out of breath and in awe of my studio room. …

With the advancement of technology in the modern world, more and more people are taking shelter within the apps on their phones, which is the same for websites. The youth, as well as adults, have become too engrossed with the media and the Internet — sometimes blinded by its persuasive temptation.

Compared to the 3.7 billion Internet users of 2017, the amount of users as of June 2018 has risen to a significant 3.95 billion¹. This goes to show that people visit the Internet everyday, whether briefly or for a significant amount of time.

Websites are viewed in a constant…
