While the media is demonstrating their total inability to understand Catholic teachings on sexuality (and demonstrating that it’s not just male prostitutes who are having a hard time understanding where to point their rare moral urges without inadvertently committing evil), let’s look at something a bit more amusing.
Kyrie is apparently the product of some Korean-American Catholic kids who watch a lot of K-drama, the Korean equivalent of J-drama and telenovelas. This seems to be half a parody, half serious drama. There are several episodes on YouTube. The first one starts with some voiceover introducing the characters while they pray — and there’s some acute observation of the kind of kids who participate in youth groups. Not great sound or pacing, but it’s not professional, either. So take a look; I think you’ll find some interesting stuff.
This got put up back in 2008, but it’s new to me.
Now, back to my search engine quest for some weepy Korean Catholic saint miniseries, possibly with heroic horseback riding through majestic scenery….
