Hardcore fans of Korean dramas, this might delight you because they’re getting major praise from our very own former Minister of Religious Affairs.

Contrary to how a politician used to describe how K-dramas ignited suicidal thoughts among the youth, Dr. Zulkifli Al Bakri has nothing but fond words about a K-drama that he recently started watching.

“I learnt something from watching it”

Dr. Zulkifli said that he was amused with the amount of research that was done during the production of the K-dramas. For instance, he recently caught up with a K-drama that focuses on a lawyer with autism – Extraordinary Attorney Woo.

The amount of information that he got, as well as the accuracy in terms of slang and jargon used pleased him.

“Everything is presented in a detailed manner. The illness, the medication, everything was explained clearly because they referred to the expert during the production.”

He went on to explain how Extraordinary Attorney Woo is not just fun to watch but also to learn.

“When it comes to the legal aspect, they mention which article, which act are being used. You can learn a lot from this,” Dr. Zulkifli praised the K-drama.

What about local dramas? While he did not mention any movies or dramas specifically, Dr. Zulkifli hinted that the local film industry needs to ramp up its game.

“Locally, if you’re playing the role of a doctor, sometimes you don’t even hold the stesthoscope right,” he said.

He then explained an example that popped up in his mind and said, “Local dramas will simply tell you it’s a severe illness. What are you going to learn and how will the audience trust you?”

You can watch and listen to the clip below, which was shared on TikTok.
