“Boys Over Flowers” (꽃보다 남자)

I had a difficult time reconciling myself with the fact that I enjoyed “Boys Over Flowers,” while being disgusted that the showrunners never addressed how cruel the main characters were to kids outside of their circle.

“Heirs” (왕관을 쓰려는자, 그무게를 견뎌라-상속자들)

Set in a high school populated with the children of the rich — and therefore — powerful, “Heirs” introduces us to teenagers who live by a strict caste system. Tan, followed by Young-Do, are at the top. The scholarship students are at the bottom. They are bullied and beaten mercilessly and even those who’d like to help won’t, because they don’t want to align themselves with the unwanted.
