Iridium almost sounds like a korean word.
Could be a name like: Iri-dium.
Heavy enough to lift an elephant?
What's in long kdrama episodes that keeps you hooked - other than the cliffhanger endings? Is it feeling feelings driving the plot and being the plot in a way western shows don't even try to be (or do). Even a show like This is Us is feelings but through narrative devices - how can we hide this, flashback that and tada! Reveal! Now cry...
But kdramas are all cards on the table in a way.
Heart fully on sleeve. Reveals but for feels.
Leading with feels.
One micro expression to the next.

I used to send a lot of snail mail pre-pre-lockdown... now even sending out Christmas cards gives me feelings of vague unease. But what I do have is a bunch of collected postcards from when travel was a yearly affair filled with such ease. So I give you: Postcards to No One.
