KATTEN

Dus, vandaag waren we naar CATS, mijn eenafavourietste musical (na Jesus Christ Superstar) en ik moet zeggen, het was minder erg dan ik had verwacht. Het begon al goed, met een geweldig podium en een decoor wat ik mooier vond dan die van het origineel (daarmee bedoel ik de op dvd uitgebrachte Andrew Loyd Webber versie). EN overal waren lichtjes. En aan ‘t begin gingen ze allemaal aan en knipperen en kleurtjes en ik ging *oooooh, lichtjes* Dat was opzich ook wel een nadeel, want tijdens de show zat ik soms ook van *ooooh, lichtjes* terwijl er twintig katten aan het dansen waren op ‘t podium.
Maargoed, het decoor was dus geweldig, maar waar ik me vooral zorgen over maakte was de nederlandse vertaling. En terecht. Ze hebben alles zo letterlijk mogelijk vertaald, waardoor alles nogal geforceerd over komt (bijv. "Op een nacht zo stil, dat je een speld kan vallen horen, zal een kat worden uitverkoren" enzo). Ik denk dat het een stuk beter had geklonken als de nederlandse texten dezelfde lijn zouden volgen als de engelse, maar wat vrijer vertaald. Maargoed, niets aan te doen. Het was ook niet afschuwelijk, maar wel jammer. Wat wel afschuwelijk was, waren de vertalingen van de namen van de katten. "de Tuk Stuk Rukker" (ipv Rum Tum Tugger) "Van Zonderen" (ipv Macavity) "Spikkelpikkelmies" (ipv Jennyanydots) en "Lorrenjopie en Scharrelnelis" (ipv Mungojerrie em Rumpleteazer). Maar hoe nederlands ze ook waren, de cast kon echt wel goed zingen, en ze interacten ook best goed met het publiek. Het mooiste vond ik eigenlijk dat je vaak op de achtergrond nog meer kon zien dan op de voorgrond. Ze zaten heel goed in hun rol en als je erop lette zag je ze zichzelf uitrekken, met elkaar spelen, zichzelf schoonmaken, krabben, etc. Dat is echt heel gaaf.
Al met al was ‘t niet zo goed als de engelse versie, maar ben ik wel heel blij dat ik de geweldige muziek in het echt heb kunnen horen en dat we zulk talent in nederland hebben.

7.5/10
(puur omdat ik de engelse versie al kende, anders had ik ze niet hoeven te vergelijken)

One of the many things I love about Korea is that it has way more 'themed stores' than my own country. For some reason, some companies or brands such as Ghibli, Gundam, Kakao or, as in these pictures, Line, decide to spend millions creating beautiful flagship locations that feel like a mix of an exhibition space and a regular store.

This was the first time I visited the Line store in Itaewon since I'm not very interested in either Line nor Itaewon, but it was definitely a really cute sight to behold.

Now, ondol heating is a staple of any building, no matter how high or low the rent. As a Dutchman, floor heating has always been something associated with 'fancy people', so it's petty nice to be able to enjoy warm feet in cold winters like this one myself.

#온돌 #대한민국 #남한산성 #요새 #전통 #역사 #한국 #눈 Buddhism has an ever increasing following in Korea, in spite of the extreme popularity of Christianity. As an outsider, it's strange to me how traditional Confucian values and Buddhist teachings can live hand in hand with a modernizing society and the vastly different beliefs of a Western religion, but somehow, people here make it work.

The atmosphere of a Korean temple couldn't be more different from that of a European church or cathedral. Whereas a church makes one feel close to God, a temple makes one feel close to nature.
Perhaps that's why I love them so much.

#대한민국 #남한산성 #불교 #절 #사찰 #석가모니 #전통 #종교 #기독 #기독교 There are lots of relics from the past strewn around all over the Korean peninsula, but I was really surprised when my 형 showed me Namhansan - a real (fake) traditional town that acted as an emergency palace for some time, surrounded by ancient walls and less ancient hiking trails.

It was probably my imagination, but the air did smell cleaner over there on the snow covered mountain where we found this small temple.

Not because his play wasn't amazing (his hold against Trap's shield battery rush was simply phenomenal), but because it's like having me as a fan is like death's kiss; the players I love never seem to win anything when I'm there to cheer them on!

RIP Byun, please come back stronger and harder next season.
Congratulations Dark, for beating my curse! 계속계속 응원하겠습니다!
