Neko-motyw w wybranych współczesnych japońskich serialach <p>In her analysis of three TV series: Neko Zamurai (2013–2015), A Man and His Cat (2021), and The Way of the Househusband (2020–), the author of the article refers to the crisis of traditional masculinity in contemporary Japan. The correlation between the crisis and the cat theme presented in these series is the main topic of the text. Three TV series analysed in the article use this popular theme to redefine masculinity in different ways. Contemporary Japan’s feline fascination serves as a gender-neutral territory, where feminine meets masculine, tradition is accompanied by (post)modernity, and kawaii aesthetics mixes with sophisticated culture.</p> Magdalena Kempna-Pieniążek Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Thu, 29 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Nieokiełznane opowieści-kłącza. Mo Dao Zu Shi i Chen Qing Ling jako przykład transmedialności na gruncie chińskim <p>Despite the academic efforts in making it more known and familiar, Chinese cinema is still sometimes considered to a certain degree as „an outlandish”. Is it the case? I decided to examine it on the example of work, which was divided with time into separate pieces, and then underwent the process of transmedia storytelling – a form of media narration forgotten after Matrix by Wachowski’s siblings. As a primary role in my reflection serves The Untamed – 50-episodes Chinese historical drama (guzhuang) shared via Tencent platform in 2019. At this point the series is rather known, but at the same time it stays away from mainstream – located slightly at the edge of global awareness, somewhere between popular and niche culture. Thanks to transformation into transmedia story, and also being entangled in the Internet second circuit, the original plot, depicted by the series, received recognition and opened itself for the farther interpretations and metamorphosis.</p> Pamela Olej Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Thu, 29 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Analiza wizerunku poselstw państwa Ming w koreańskich serialach kostiumowych na tle relacji chińsko-koreańskich <p>The paper analyses the portrayal of Ming envoys in South Korean dramas. The four series, i.e. Wang-i doen namja, Baegir-ui Nanggunnim, Wang-ui Eolgul and Yeon-mo are taken under consideration. Conducted analysis shows that the presented image is often incorrect in terms of hairstyles or clothing, and envoys show questionable etiquette. Moreover, the quality of the used Chinese emissaries costumes seems to be lower than the Korean characters. Image is used as a tool to differentiate Chinese and Koreans. Furthermore, it is a part of a broader picture of flared-up discussion on what Koreans should wear and who can wear Korean clothes.</p> Magdalena Grela-Chen Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Thu, 29 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Dlaczego wszyscy gramy w czerwone światło–zielone światło? Analiza fenomenu serialu Squid Game <p>In the last few years, a growing South Korean influence in the global pop culture can be observed, which is manifested by, among others, the popularity of K-Pop and series called K-Dramas. In 2021, its culmination was the premiere of Squid Game directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk on the Netflix streaming service. This production turned out to be the most watched series in the history of this platform and a global cultural phenomenon. There has been a lot of speculation in the media about the success of this production. This article will discuss the most important factors that influenced the emergence of the Squid Game cultural phenomenon, such as references to social issues and South Korean history, the distinctive style of South Korean cinematography, and elements related to social media and psychology.</p> Adam Jankowiak, Magdalena Michalak Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Thu, 29 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Specters of postcolonialism in HBO’s Folklore <p>This paper aims to present the Asian take on the folk horror subgenre. The author focuses on the HBO-produced anthology Folklore (2018–), which states the starting point for further analyses. Wajda starts by pointing to difficulties in defining ‚folk horror’ and its meaning for the development of global cinemas. The author describes and compares different approaches to this term and takes a closer look at relations between horror, its literary beginnings, and folk stories filled with grim and gruesome events. Concerning the above, Wajda observes that folk horror was primarily associated with British cinema in the late 1960s and 1970s, later developing into other countries. Furthermore, the author compares British folk horror with the new themes on the Asian ground presented in Folklore. Wajda points out that the current cycle of folk horror is a global phenomenon successfully adopted by Asian filmmakers.</p> Piotr Wajda Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Thu, 29 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Sensibilities of the digital era. New media and future technologies in K-drama subgenre narratives <p>The presented article provides insight into the development of the SF tropes in K-dramas, pointing out the correlation between the technological discourses, narrative modifications, and the viewers’ expectations. The author focuses on three chosen titles – Crash Landing on You (Sarang-ui bulsichak), My Holo Love (Na Hollo Geudae), and Memories of the Alhambra (Alhambeura Gungjeonui Chueok) – which underline the differences between technological narratives in K-dramas. The dynamic development of K-drama subgenres indicates that the generic love story has to be accompanied by additional elements, building engaging and memorable background. There is a need for exciting surroundings transgressing the notions of probability and drifting into the fantastic or futuristic worlds. Focusing on the serialized representations of technological development, the author analyzes how K-drama anticipates the future and creates a new specter of cultural sensibilities.</p> Agnieszka Kiejziewicz Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Thu, 29 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Anime studies: Wprowadzenie Jaqueline Berndt; Anna Ratkiewicz Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Thu, 29 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Wstęp Agnieszka Kiejziewicz Prawa autorskie (c) 2023 Thu, 29 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000
