The cars in #MyLiberationNotes : symbols of liberation or alienation - a thread 🧵 #SonSukKu #KimJiWon #LeeMinKi #LeeEl
When we 1st met ChangHee, he’s asking to his father the permission to take a loan to get a car, so the siblings could stop commuting everyday by train. But Yeom dad refuses bc Chang Hee was unable to pay for his previous car #MyLiberationNotes
For Chang Hee, not having a car is an obstacle to his love life, as he can’t go wherever he wants so easily. As a single man living at his parents’ house, it’s also the only place he could have some intimacy #MyLiberationNotes

🧵#MyLiberationNotes is full of religious symbolism and allusions. A thread on the strangest of them all: the Pietà, how it's the perfect motif for our worship couple Mi-jeong/Mary and Gu/Jesus, and what it could mean for their possible ending.

Gi-jeong describes the pick-up girl as the "noblest romance": If need be, she would gently pick up her lover’s severed head. She wants an abundant love, not shying away from gore. Given the bible references in MLN, this may even allude to Salome demanding John the Baptist’s head. ImageImage
Oscar Wilde’s Salome was obsessed with John, demanding and kissing his severed head. Gi-jeong dances that fine line between love and obsession, too. She has a lot of love to give, but she doesn’t always realise, if the other person is ready to receive it yet. ImageImage
