BCM320 Contextual Essay K-Dramas


Within my digital Artefact I explored Korean Dramas specifically those available for western consumption on Netflix, I had very little to no actual exposure to K-Dramas in the past and even had somewhat of distaste for endeavouring to experience them. This was because I felt that the actual content of K-Dramas couldn’t possibly be appropriate for what I generally watch which is usually action content. I think the real issue here comes from the assumption that K-Drama implies that the medium can only be romantic drama and be unable to move beyond that yet I saw a great deal of K-Dramas with rom-com elements and even action and fantasy genres that I would never even consider to associate with them. The field site I chose to study this cultural medium was Netflix as there are a great deal of them on Netflix as their internationally is a widespread interest in…

BCM320 A review on My Narrated experience


So let’s talk about my previous post, regarding my experience watching Korean dramas.

Early in this video we can see how I point out my bias against the idea of even participating in watching a Korean drama, this is because I felt that it wouldn’t be something that I would enjoy watching.

BCM320 Gojira and Livetweeting


This week in class I experienced my first time live tweeting, while I consider myself somewhat of an experienced user of social media while working on my own personal endeavours in both YouTube and business I think I’ve got some insight on the kind of quirky intelligent post that draws interest.

While I’m of the opinion that meme culture is a necessary evil within the space of live tweeting it felt from that experience that the idea of using a meme for live tweeting was oversaturating the space and instead of participating in an intelligent discussion about the film much of the live tweeting content was simple or dated memes or pop culture references which are relatively relatable to Godzilla. While I also participated in this format of ‘meme tweeting’ I felt like the medium of twitter doesn’t exactly allow for intelligent posts to even be created entertainment driven notion…
