I still don’t know why viewers enjoy watching SBS drama Penthouse which has been the biggest hit on South Korean television in years and is now on season 3. It just feels like a star-studded makjang-ier version of hit cable drama Sky Castle, rich people in-fighting with a sprinkling of death and tsunamis of betrayal. With that said, my perplexation has now turned to annoyance with the latest “twist” on the episode that aired this Friday and it’s causing netizen chatter as well. K-actor Park Eun Seok got his big break on this drama playing Logan Lee and was killed at the end of season 2. Lee Ji Ah was killed off at the end of season 1 and came back in season 2 as the twin sister who then ended up being the original character masquerading as the twin sister. Now Park Eun Seok’s back on the show as the twin brother of Logan Lee and not just a normal looking person but a South Korean cosplaying a hardcore rapper with Rastafarian dreads. It’s so offensive in EVERY SINGLE WAY, from recycling the twin resurrection plot to making the character into this persona and styling. This character even has a black person as one of his bodyguards AHHHHHHH KOALA SMASH SO HARD ALL THIS CULTURAL APPROPRIATION AND RACIAL STEREOTYPING. I’m glad K-netizens hate this so much and also find it offensive and treating them like they are morons to dish this plot out.
