There are some outstanding Korean comedy shows which perhaps entirely escape the attention of the West because of the language barrier.

It need not be the case: the acting is brilliant, and the stories can be universally understood. Drama as comedy.

This show is what Olwyn Green, widow of Lieutenant Colonel Charles Green DSO who died of wounds leading the Australian 3rd Battalion, in her brilliant book “The Name’s Still Charlie” refers to as “the unglamorous reality of service life.” Anyone who served will understand.

Anyone who was ever wondered whether Mecuricome is a universal cure-all will get this too.

It runs for about 19 minutes, but enjoy the first minute or so and you will get the picture.
