On Aug. 12, transbay bus service will begin at the $2.16 billion Transbay Transit Center, which stretches nearly three blocks between Beale and Second streets, just south of Mission Street. East Bay commuters entering the city by bus will travel traffic-free above downtown streets from the Bay Bridge into an elevated concourse.The new station should also attract Bay Area residents and visitors who never ride a bus. For them, the lure is a 5.4-acre park that fills the roof above the concourse:

K-drama female staff - 20-hour working days for $177 a month
By Dong Sun-hwa

Hallyu is often represented by celebrities who make a fortune from the films or dramas in which they star.

But what about staff or crew who work behind the scenes, especially women?

"We face an abusive and tough life," a former drama staff told The Korea Times on condition of anonymity. She worked as a drama PD trainee and her tasks included preparing late-night meals, making reservations and looking after receipts.

She said she and others were on the receiving end of sexual harassment and swearing in the name of culture and custom.

"Some male crews frequently made lewd jokes to female staff and talked to them in a disrespectful way," she said. "Some made uncalled-for advances, touching us."

She said her friend, also a trainee, had a worse experience.

The former drama staff revealed the hardships she had to endure while working. Korea Times graphic by Bae So-young

"My friend was abandoned at the site of filming," she said. "But nobody told her what to do ― instead, they cursed her, and threatened her physically for not doing her job well."

Her friend told the production firm about the incident, but was only told, "This is how this industry works ― if you can't endure it, give up. We have plenty of others to replace you."

The friend said she could not do this because once she left, there would be no second chance to work in the industry.

The former staff also disclosed that during the production, she worked 20 hours a day, starting at 7:30 a.m. and sometimes not finishing until 3:40 a.m.

"Sleeping on the site was common," she added. "Then, I would get 200,000 won ($177) a month."

In contrast, actor Lee Byung-hun is reportedly being paid 150 million won ($134,000) for each of the 24 episodes of the new tvN series, "Mr. Sunshine."

She also mentioned the "vicious cycle" of K-drama productions too.

"To reduce costs, we reduce shooting time by squeezing as much as possible within a given time," she said. "That means we work constantly, without sleep."

An associate producer for entertainment programs at a broadcasting station agreed, saying, "We know we need to hire more people, but we won't."

He unveiled that the problem was more serious because Korea was neither a leader of season programs nor pre-productions.

"Two jobs in our industry are well paid ― celebrity actors and main producers," he said.

Gusts Of Popular Feeling: Hidden camera images in Sunday Seoul magazine in 1971
AFP correspondent Hawon Jung, who has been covering the large anti-molka (hidden camera porn) protests by women, wrote today:

This playful poster made by South Korean police for its new online campaign to help curb spycam porn crimes seems to sum up how the police view the widespread crimes causing so much fear & anxiety among women : funny, laughable pranks committed by pink-cheeked man-boys. pic.twitter.com/uAQlyrxMwX
— Hawon Jung (@allyjung) August 9, 2018

The incident which prompted the protests involved police zealously hunting down a woman who posted an image of a male nude model online, in comparison with their lax pursuit of men who do the same to women.

I've been organizing my research taken from weekly magazines from 1968-1971 like Sunday Seoul and, oddly enough, today I came across the following photos from the March 21, 1971 issue of Sunday Seoul. The text reads:

When women are alone…
Men are presented with magic in moments of defenselessness when women are not concealed or unadorned. Women with childish cuteness and sincerity are charming, and in those women-only times and places they slightly turn their heads.
What are the impressions of women who see photos of moments like these?



The photos presented are of a reclining co-ed in her rented room reading on a Sunday, a woman doing calisthenics, and "'Oh my oh my' screams the friend behind [the woman] who absent-mindedly ties her shoes."

Sunday Seoul (and Weekly Kyonghyang) began in the fall of 1968 and for over a year featured nude photo spreads (of mostly Western women in WK and Korean women in SS). By mid-1970 the nude centerfolds had disappeared from Sunday Seoul and were replaced with nude paintings of women, both Korean and Western, modern and classic.

Even Matisse. Sunday Seoul, May 31, 1970.

This is the context in which the photo spread above appeared. As I noted here, even Korean newspapers reprinted photos (from AP) of Western women in swimsuits (though I incorrectly suggest Koreans did not wear bikinis like in the West; my research has found that bikinis were much more common in Korea in the 1970s). While Sunday Seoul is quite important for its documenting and even sponsoring of youth culture in the late 1960s and early 1970s, it's quite clear that men were the target audience. A friend once told me that he got a Sunday Seoul magazine from friends for his birthday when he was in his teens in the 1980s, and that it was used for "masturbation purposes."

While the photo spread above is clearly shot with models and does not suggest that (male) readers photograph women in the same way, what is one to make of this photo spread highlighting women's legs from the August 15, 1971 issue of Sunday Seoul?


This is merely the first of four pages of similar photos. I have my doubts that these photos were shot openly, making them, essentially, molka photos.

I really don't know if such photo spreads would have been in mainstream Western magazines at that time, though it certainly wouldn't surprise me. The Weekly Kyonghyang regularly reprinted Western cartoons, including many like this:

From the January 21, 1970 Weekly Kyonghyang

The fact that women have breasts was fodder for many cartoons. That images like these no longer appear in mainstream media is a reminder that some progress has been made in the last 50 years, even if it might not always feel that way.

Update:

It slipped my mind that the police have been concerned with at least some men taking hidden camera photos, as this July 29, 2013 Munhwa Ilbo article, titled "'Foreigners [caught for] hidden cameras' increase sixfold over four years - concern videos may be leaked overseas," reveals. It mentions a foreign teacher who took upskirt photos (but not at a beach, which was the focus of the story) and illustrates the article with an image of an English teacher behaving deviously (though not as deviously as the teacher in the image here, illustrated by the same artist).


Note the difference between how he is illustrated and how the naughty Korean man is illustrated in the offending police poster (which does not appear with the tweet linked above for some reason):

Daring Fireball: Doug Field Returns to Apple After Leaving Tesla
from Daring Fireball

Here’s some interesting hiring news I’ve heard through the little birdie grapevine:1 Doug Field — who left Tesla in May after overseeing Model 3 production — has returned to Apple, working in Bob Mansfield’s project Titan group. Apple spokesperson Tom Neumayr confirmed with me only that Field has returned to Apple, but no one should find it surprising that he’s working on Titan.

Field previously worked at Apple as a VP of Mac hardware engineering before leaving for Tesla 2013. So he spent years working closely (and successfully) with Mansfield on Mac hardware, and spent the last few years as senior VP of engineering at the world’s premiere electric carmaker. That makes Field a seemingly perfect fit for Titan.

I wouldn’t read too much into any single hire, and the employee exchange program between Apple and Tesla continues to flow in both directions. But I think it’s an interesting hire, primarily because it suggests to me that Apple still has an interest in making actual vehicles, despite reports that the company has scaled back the project to merely make autonomous systems for inclusion in vehicles made by other companies. That rumor never really made sense to me anyway — Apple’s modus operandi has always been to make the whole widget. Apple makes products, not components. Field returning to Apple also suggests to me that under Mansfield’s leadership, the Titan project has regained its footing after its infamously rocky start.

And you have to love the idea of any project being led by guys named Bob and Doug, eh.

Mixed metaphor, I know, but I’m going with it. ↩︎
