  • it's not an original thought perhaps, but I think people watch so much tv because life would otherwise be unbearable. unless you are born into a chaebol family or your parents were the fantastically lucky few who purchased land in gangnam decades ago, you have to work and work and work for a salary that isn’t even enough to buy a house or pay for childcare, and you sit at a desk until your spine twists, and your boss is somehow incompetent and a workaholic at the same time and at the end of the day you have to drink to bear it all.
