Grandpa Lampshade’s Top 5 Reasons to Watch Historical Korean Drama

As regular readers of this space know: this is a go to source for hard hitting political commentary and support when it comes to stopping these kikes. However, sometimes it’s fun to step back and talk about things of a lighter nature. As you can gather from the title, this isn’t going to be a real serious article but there is something serious I do want to touch on: avoiding burn out. If you do this day in and day out, even if all you do is read and listen to different material from people on our side, if you aren’t careful you can get burned out on this stuff as progress doesn’t always come along at a pace to our liking. When I hear from fellow content providers about devoting virtually all of their time to this cause, I shake my head. You have to set aside time for something other than this. So even though this article is meant to be something fun, you really should find some way of unplugging and letting your mind recharge. Even if that’s something as simple as watching subtitled Korean Dramas.

5. Something for everyone. One of the great thing about watching historical Korean dramas is that in most of them, there is something for everyone. If you watch it with your significant other, there is usually romance which might sound  boring but the guys who put these shows out are really good about keeping a good mixture of political intrigue and awesome sword fights in the mix to keep it interesting. Pretty much all of these are rated 15 which in Korea means suitable for viewers 15 and older. TBH they’re pretty tame as far as any graphic gore when compared to American TV and a kiss scene is a big deal so no graphic sex scenes just for the sake of putting them in there.

One minute you’re almost tortured to death and you’re out in the rain on your knees begging the King for mercy, the next the man of your dreams shows up. Ladies love this. Me I like the sword fights. 

4. No political message. Look, at the end of a long day of working my normie job and stopping these kikes, the last thing I want to do is turn on the TV and watch some stupid show with a strong female lead character cop who can take down any man. Her partner is a nerdy white guy who is scared of violence so he depends on her to protect him. The Chief is a highly intelligent negro who does his best to be the voice of reason. I’d swear, literally 90% of the shows on American TV would fall under this description. I mean sure, in K-Drama you have the occasional bad ass woman sword fighter but let’s be honest, they’re mostly eye candy and no matter how bad ass their part may be written they still always wind up having to be rescued by the male protagonist of the story.

3. Actual Story. Some of these shows are based on actual events though the story itself will play loosely with those facts, while others are complete works of fiction. One of the things I really like about these things is they honor the old school tradition of telling a story. There is a beginning, a middle and most importantly an end. How many times have you started watching a show on American TV and the first season of the show you are all like, “Hey this is pretty good. I mean yeah, you have to overlook some of the leftist agenda but it’s watchable” only to find three, four or five seasons later that not only is the show now utter shit, but it’s so beyond obvious that the producers and the networks are milking it for every last drop of revenue.  Characters you once cared about have become such caricatures of themselves that not only do you no longer care about them but you are pretty much like, “Uhg I wish someone would just kill this guy already.” K-drama doesn’t work this way. A typical historical K-drama will get anywhere from 24 (the average) to 50 (for a really long running series) episodes and that’s it. I don’t mean that’s it until next season I mean that’s it period. The show is over. The result? Even though generally the stories are very well written on their own, they are made even more intriguing in that you don’t know if a character you have grown to care about is actually going to be killed off. I just recently finished one and by the final episode, the two main characters in the show died off and the show was over. I’d prefer an outcome such as this to seeing a character I cared about die a death of a thousand shark jumps on American crap TV.

2. Effort. I don’t know what the typical budget is in Korea to produce one of these shows but I will say this: everyone involved puts in an incredible amount of effort. Over the years I’ve tried to watch some shows that had promise on American TV and even though at first they show promise by season 3 it becomes obvious that everyone from the actors to the writers are just phoning it in. Perhaps this is a result of the fact that on American TV, as long as a show turns a profit they will keep running it until everyone involved gets totally burned out on it, including the viewer. From the costumes to the acting, these people work to produce an entertaining show and they work to keep it at least believable in the context of the time period it’s supposed to be taking place. The Queen Dowager may be ruthless and cold but she won’t suddenly stand up and reprimand the King over women’s rights or some stupid bullshit. Again, I watch TV to unplug and be entertained.

1. Bad ass Kings. Kings in the Joseon dynasty didn’t play around. These guys could have you tortured and your head cut off for pretty much any reason. Yet, the inner workings of the court are always interesting. The King is usually trying to accomplish something all the while advisers who claim to be allies are working to undermine him for the benefit of their own clans and for their own greedy desires (sounds familiar doesn’t it?). Depending on the story, the King may go through some sort of inner turmoil but for the most part you won’t have to sit through watching some pansy struggle with his inner feelings trying to make a decision right after asking the wise woman what she thinks he should do. Again, this is all just entertainment but you have to like the fact that these people even in their entertainment produce a product that cultivates a pride in their history, their culture and their heritage. If our entertainment industry wasn’t completely owned and operated by Jews, we could have that too.

Well there ya have it. Don’t get triggered, this isn’t going to become some sort of entertainment blog but what the hell, I thought it would be fun to have a light topic for a change of pace. I do however encourage you to find one way or another to unplug from this work once in awhile because it is important for your mental health and it will help you become more productive when you start back to work again the next day. If you do want to try these shows out, I watch them on kissasian. If you use ad block it’s pretty uncluttered and you can watch an hour long show with no race mixing propaganda commercials to boot. If you are looking for something to start out with I’ll give you some suggestions. My word of advice if you try them out, is to be patient. The first 4-6 episodes are usually character development episodes and if they involve the character’s childhood years they can be kind of hard to get through but trust me, it’s well worth it. The Royal Gambler is one I recently finished that again, started off pretty slow IMO but by the end was a great watch. I’ll leave you with a trailer for it.

  1. As you know I do agree with you on the asian entertainment front.I think there are things we could relate in the messages of those movies,series and animations of the east.Anime has started becoming more and more subject to jew propaganda.I think that’s one of the reasons I stopped watching it.
