K DRAMA SCHOOL, Grace Jung

Korean American stand-up comedian, author and podcaster Grace Jung wields her PhD in Cinema and Media Studies to write an irreverent history of serialized Korean TV dramas like Squid Game and Extraordinary Attorney Woo—a pop culture phenomenon contributing to Korea’s multibillion-dollar entertainment industry now linked to media conglomerates such as Disney, Netflix and Apple TV+, analyzing everything from why K-dramas have so many Subway sandwiches all the way to the shows’ queer feminist visibility.
