    I knew South Korea was still singing early 90s style hip-hop & club music in the early 2000s, so why the hell am I so damn surprised they were still using Enka-style disco theme songs in 1989?

    I freakin’ love how the costumes literally look like giant bottom dollar bootleg toys. They straight up look like hard solid plastic with screw holes pried from an old worn mould.

    What does a human heart sound like? Running water, apparently.

    I thought Jiangshi were hopping zombies. ::Checks:: You were right, I was wrong.

    Shit, it’s already 2am. Guess I’ll finish this tomorrow. 13:42.

    And yet still better than the Bae’s… you know what, no.  I draw the line here. These costumes are so bad, that I would rather watch the Bae’s turtles, while in their motion capture suits. You see what you did to me Power 5?!

      Yup. Worse than the final musical concert with costumed mascots, worse than th 10 Inch Mutant Ninja Turtles porno parody Brad Jones reviewed.

    I feel sorry for everyone involved in making this film. The Sharks were giant rat people? Watching this movie would give me an aneurysm. I’ll stick to watching Korean Tron thank you.

    Again, what is it with South Korea and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

    I feel like they didn’t put Shredder in this because Koreans are infamous for their hatred towards Japan for what they did before and during WWII even though the Japanese occupation improved the peninsula’s quality of life. I mean, look at Taiwan for instance, they were also once occupied by Japan but unlike Korea and China, the people actually respected the Japanese for improving the quality of life on the island and grew to love them. That’s why most Taiwanese still like and appreciate Japan to this day.

      Because the Japanese tried to exterminate Korean culture and the Korean language, took many national treasures to Japan and refuses to give them back today, enslaved the people (see Battleship Island) and forced women into prostitution (see comfort women). They demolished Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul and built their colonial office on the ruins.

      Taiwan does not have 5000 years of history like Korea. Taiwan was colonized by the Chinese about 1400, soon the Dutch and a Spanish came. The island was passed back and forth for hundreds of years. In the 20th century alone, it was part of Japan, then The Republic of China, and now it is claimed by The Peoples Republic of China, with a nation flag of the ROC, while many of its people despise both.  Taiwan does not have the same national identity as Korea.
