Kim Ho, The Language of Love
so a friend sent me this, and like, it’s cute, and i’m excited about it on two fronts
- the fact that it’s written and performed by this amazing 17-year-old, and just how personal it is to the point where i’m more so invested in this character over the course of 5 minutes than characters who are around in an hour and a half long movie
- my friend’s short message attached to the link: “Holy shit! An Asian ‘protagonist.’” they watch a lot of queer shorts with white leading characters, and like, i don’t know. their excitement over seeing a person who, i think, reflects more of themselves made me so fucking excited. and just, yeah.
