In 1948, the Korean peninsula was divided into North and South Korea at the 38th Parallel. Jiwon Choi introduces viewers to modern Korean history and culture by contrasting the story of her grandfather, who served in the Korean War, with the rise of K-POP. She draws parallels between generations and between Korea’s militarism and its commercial culture.
