Family Guy Korean Episode Peter KPOP PoseThis past weekend saw the airing of a Korean Themed Family Guy Episode (Season 14 Episode 10), official titled “Candy, Quahog Marshmallow”. Most of the episode was set in Seoul with the gags and background details mainly focusing on Korean culture. Warning this post will contain some spoilers, so you’ve been warned. We’ll focus more on the Korean content rather than  the episode itself.

Firstly the positives; Seoul looked great in a family guy style. The food and locations looked good and some of the small touches like the character not wearing shoes inside was a nice touch. The KPOP video was fun with so many small but excellent elements and the love of the girl-group Sistar was a highlight. Finally drinking soju and eating dried squid/octopus in the bar.
Secondly a few personal negatives; anything about dog meat, the Korean used in the drama sounded strange and the background sound track at times sounded a little more Chinese than Korean (imo).

Finally the episode made Seoul, South Korea and Korean culture look positive. It wasn’t the best episode ever, but for those who enjoy Korean culture you’ll enjoy it.
