Review of 'The Flower of Evil' Volume 4

(In Korean: 악의 꽃)


Continuing on Seh-wa’s new friendship with Sung-chan (who I found out is rlly cauled Sung-joon/성준), volume 4 starts off with them going over to Sung-chan’s house at night. Sung-chan’s uncle is quiet taken aback by the sight of Seh-wa (not because she’s pretty, or maybe so -_- ) because having just the girl over by herself late at night is strictly contrary to Confucian morals (and pretty much every other ethical standards). Seh-wa actually wants a sleep-over (she’s ridiculously daring in a cute way, like Danbi in Love SOS), but I’m not sure to what extent Seh-wa is expecting that she’d be able to do that.

Fortunately or unfortunately (it'd have been more interesting), she leaves the house when she finds photos of her & her brother in one of Sung-chan's collections. Seh-wa goes home on a taxi, only to get a call from Sung-chan that he's waiting outside the her house. He waits there until the next morning & follows Seh-wa to school & on the way he tries to explain that he has taken pics of her & her brother b/c he simply likes them a lot. How she responds is funny:

On her way back to school, Seh-wa is attacked by a group of girls for being liked by Sung-chan. They leave her having cut her hair & her fingers up with a knife (she doesn't lose her fingers though, but still it's a sight). Seh-wa calls Sung-chan for help, and when he finds her sitting in the alley, he tries to take her to a hospital, but interestingly she begs him to take her to a hair salon first. Of course, Sung-chan takes her to the hospital before the hair salon. The chapter (13) ends with a really interesting scene that I won't spoil in this review.

After accompanying Seh-wa home, Sung-chan meets his previous girlfriend, Choi (or Chwae) Soo-jin b/c he suspects that she is mainly responsible for the cruelty. When she admits having hurt Seh-wa, Sung-chan basically threatens Soo=jin so she won't go near Seh-wa again. Personally, I don't think Sung-chan sounds threatening enough even for a girl, but Soo-jin does get really scared as willed by the manhwaga (i.e. manhwa artist).

Chapter 14 ends w/ Sung-chan getting rlly frustrated while conversing with Seh-wa about what she says at end of Chapter 13. He goes to a PC cafe (i.e. PC bang, "a" as in "bah") & plays a computer game that might be starcraft.

My favorite anime wallpapers

3 Laws of anime wallpapers:

1) Most anime wallpapers r crappy.
2) Finding good wallpapers is time consuming.
3) The ones said to be the best (i.e.'s featured gallery) r not necessarily great:

1st manhwa artist

(source: Janimes)
Yi Do-yeong (이도영) (1884-1933) "[expressed]... his ideas in... form of manhwa through ... [a] popular daily newspaper [(Dehanminbo, 대한민보)]... [in] 1909." He was mostly known for opposing Japan's colonization of Korea through his works.
I know there are some very bizarre myths out there about pretty much anything (i.e. Kiss My Kimchi!: Coreans are Caucasians???). Well, ppl, if u were assuming manhwa came from Japanese manga, now u know it didnt!

Youtube - the birth of doggy poo

Doggy Poo, the greatest that ever was. Very funny. It's a stop motion Korean animation.

Brian in Jeollanam-do: "You are a doggy poo."
Koreans are obsessed with poop and rear ends, everyone knows that. Give ten of your students a wad of clay and eleven of them will make an poop swirley cone. Not sure why you'd go around giving out clay, but whatever, poop is in the news again after a local newspaper broke it down by nationality, and created a nice illustration to show which people poop the most.

Youtube - (Korean Anime) 2009 NEW DOOLY OP

I found this youtube link here. The comments there were quite positive.

The opening song is okay. I think it sounds a bit like JPop/Anime-ish. I remember watching Dooly when I was little. It'd be on TV every Korean New Year (Seollal). There was also an English learning video set for kids that I remember watching in my friend's apartment. I really enjoyed it all. I worry that the producers will milk it & ruin it b/c they usualy do to major titles (i.e. Neon Genesis Evangelion, Pokemon, Digimon, etc.).

Counter Strike Source spray

This is a spray I made for Counter Strike: Source. : ) I hope to make a wallpaper as something similar. The scene's from Goong.
