Korean Television

I have Netflix and like to watch foreign television on occasion. Today I watched a show called "Schoolgirl Detectives" from Korea. I have to admit, it made absolutely no sense to me. I had no problem with captioning, I had no cultural reference.

So here is the story so far. A high school goes to a private school and on her first day, on the way to school, she is grabbed and bitten on the arm by a young man in a black hoodie. She gets to school and meets a bunch of strange fellow students, four of whom are part of a detective club. The "detectives" decide to recruit her and literally stalk her for days. The four "detectives" decide to bite one another so that they can tell her they were attacked to and eventually she joins them in the detective society.

I have watched shows and movies from all over Europe, Mexico, India, Australia and all over; but, this stuff really made no sense to me. If you have Netflix, watch an episode and see if it makes any sense to you. Oh, and happy fourth of July.
