While Korean Americans have a long and storied history of exercising their natural, civil, and Constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms, the same cannot be said for Korean Koreans. In fact, when asked for this Variety article about firearm safety on set, the creator of gun-intensive hit Netflix show Squid Game said something that really caught my eye:
[writer and director Hwang Dong-hyuk] said, “in my life, I have never seen a real bullet. I have only seen them in the movies.”
…in Korea, we’re not really a gun-owning country, so only the police can have and own a gun,” he said. “Because of that, bullets are not really as easily distributed as they are maybe here, so there’s a very low, low possibility of any safety issues happening on set.”
Well here in the U.S. obviously the police are racist murderers so that’s why only the police should be able to own firearms. Errr…I may have watched too much MSNBC last night.
At any rate, I vote to start a crowdfunding campaign to move Alec Baldwin to Korea. We just need to figure out if that’ll be North or South.
