Good to know. I knew i would never watch it but now I extra know.

Jokes aside. I think you're judging it with western eyes and standards. That's just how it is over there. Plus growing up I was around Korean kids and they spoke and acted like that so I don't think yourr right in saying they're overacting with their physicality

Now what about that What If? You haven't mentioned it past the first episode, did you enjoy that as a whole or did you end up disliking it?

It could be my western eyes and standards. Excellent point.

As for the superhero show, it was fine enough. Some were good, some werenít. Then again, I didnít grow up with superhero kids so Iím not sure what the standard should be.

What kind of eyes should use? The ones attached to the head are pretty practical.

I should've said a western mindset.

I speak Spanish and saying eyes made sense to me

You should write down the definition to Eyes so that these fuckiní simpletons get it. They donít get TV on a level like you do.

It’s not so serious. It’s a TV show made for entertainment.
People will watch it from their mindset and that’s ok. If they don’t like it, it’s also fine. I’m so far in my mindset of not liking violent ( western or eastern) shows that I will for sure never see it.
