High Yellow is dedicated to lofty talk about Asian popular culture, especially K-pop, K-drama, Hong Kong film and wuxia television series.
When I’m not at my day job, I wax poetic about my favorite Asian popular culture. My bias groups are SS501, Shinhwa, SHINee and Super Junior. My favorite Kdramas include Boys Over Flowers, My Lovely Samsoon, The Great Queen Seondeok, and Tree with Deep Roots. Some of my favorite Asian films are Young and Dangerous series, Infernal Affairs, Red Cliff, The Mission, Election, Densha Otoko, Memories of Murder, JSA: Joint Security Area, Nana, Fong Sai Yuk, and Once Upon A Time in China. My favorite wuxia television series are Return of the Condor Heroes (1983), Legend of the Condor Heroes (2008) and The Handsome Siblings (2005).
