I’ve been criticizing The New York Times a lot recently. But, to my defense, they’ve been printing a lot of dumb things recently. Check out this write up of Stranger, a Korean drama:
‘Stranger’ (Netflix) The murder mystery “Stranger” has less of the usual awkwardness and obviousness of many South Korean dramas as well as another big advantage: It stars the immensely likable Bae Doo-na as a fearless cop.
That’s a little rude, but nothing to be truly outraged about, right? Well, that’s not what they originally printed.
‘Stranger’ (Netflix) Full disclosure: this is an affirmative-action slot, recognizing the ubiquity and popularity of South Korean dramas. The murder mystery “Stranger” has less of the usual awkwardness and obviousness (yes, I know, cultural differences) and it has two other advantages over most K-dramas: It’s only eight episodes long and it stars the immensely likable Bae Doo-na as a fearless cop.
Yikes. At least they offered this at the bottom of the article:
Correction:In earlier version of this article misstated the number of episodes in the murder mystery “Stranger.” It has 16 episodes, not eight.
