It’s been yet another trying week in the world, and particularly so in public health and pandemic response. It’s rough out there. Luckily, I have a well-established path to escapism by way of Kpop, Kdrama, and other Asian entertainment. I don’t know where’d I’d be without the pics, gifs, and links to YouTube content that I get on a routine basis or without the neverending supply of dramas available to suit almost any mood. And as I’m sure you’ve seen and probably heard, a lot of recent stuff is being influenced by the pandemic and not just because there’s no live audience. Liberal use of hand sanitizer during every variety show, stringent hand washing in dramas, and even clever marketing by entertainment companies to support public health messaging has been popping up in all sorts of places (thank you for the group logo updates, Nu’est and Seventeen, public health loves you too).
