Because Apparently, We All Look Alike [Hulu Fail]

Dear Hulu,

Thanks for even having a Korean Dramas section. I really appreciate it.

And thank you for spotlighting the Korean Dramas genre on your front page today: 

But wait. Something isn’t quite right.

Can it be that the first “Korean” drama you featured is The Legend of Bruce Lee?

Just to make sure, I clicked on over and watched a few minutes.

I was right. It clearly is a CHINESE drama.

Look, I have nothing against the Chinese. Heck, I even married a Chinese guy.

But as someone who grew up with numerous people asking me, “What ethnicity are you? Chinese?….No? Japanese?…No? Then what ARE you?” I can’t help but laugh at such a high-profile company making such a mistake.

Can’t you make a better effort?

 

Sincerely,

A Loyal (Korean) Hulu Plus Customer

  4. That’s horrible! I’ve been getting the hulu thinks you would like this type message and it’s all foreign dramas and I’m totally not into them. I was starting to think that b/c I’m asian I must like asian dramas. I hope Hulu gets the message!

    Bahahaha! I looked at your screenshot and was like, “Isn’t Bruce Lee Chinese?” then kept reading. That is pretty sad, Hulu…
