Teenage Drama

WESTERNIZED KOREANESS= HYBRIDIZATION AND, LOVE. is a series composed of 6 videos featuring archetypal characters, interpreters of «love-stories» in which we find the characteristics of Korean dramas.

TEENAGE DRAMA is a direct reference to the high school tv show: a group of students are bored in -what it seems to be a classroom- while a cheerful teacher is trying to guide them. The game starts slowly: one after the other, students are facing the camera and explaining their failed attempt to find real love. They are analysing and questioning themselves about what didn’t work in the first place, which tactics they should have used. Their references to successful attempts are images taken from Korean drama as main reference, positioning them at the same level as a quote from Victor Hugo.
