I’ve watched I don’t know HOW many saeguks and before that a whole TON of classic Japanese mid-20th century Film. (And Godzilla and Mothra movies ) I was too busy watching Love in the Moonlight to pay attention to the way Kwak Dong Yeon was dressed until this still image. It was the first thing I noticed - it JUMPED out at me. “? Huh? Why is he dressed like a dead guy? He ain’t dead.”
Oh! My poor mother! But it was her OWN FAULT! She KNEW BETTER! One time when I was a kid, (Back in the 1960’s) I came home and said, "Hola Mothra! Como estas?
She smiled and said, How sweet, you are speaking Spanish.
me = - So after that, I greeted her that way all the time.
A YEAR LATER!
(We never sat in chairs as kids - those were for the adults) All us kids were laying on the front room floor watching Godzilla versus Mothra! They were going after each other pretty well. Godzilla was destroying a miniature Tokyo a-gain while Mothra was flapping it’s wings and making weird noises. My mom poked her head around the corner to see what we were doing. There was MOTHRA fighting Godzilla! In full BLACK AND WHITE GLORY!
She squeeked and said, "You BEAST CHILD! and swatted me. (My mom really had a phobia about flapping moths. ) “And here all this time, I thought you were being a sweet daughter greeting me in Spanish.”
Ow GAWD! I had to go look up the trailer and forgot just how CHEEZY-bad it was! Yea, we were watching the original Godzilla movies.
I remember in one of the early ('54-'72 versions) there was a really cute guy. _I have no idea what his name was. - I’d have to watch all of those old movies to find his picture. One of these days when I have time to kill, I’ll have to look up my first celebrity crush. (from an old-time Godzilla movie )
AND the last Godzilla movie I watched was when Godzilla destroyed NEW YORK!.
