Kyrie: Korean-American Catholic Drama show

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….
