    Unlikeable characters, glitzy with no heart…Hyena is another americanized Kdrama. Netflix is intent on wiping the Korean cultural points & values out of the plots & the very soul of what sent the Hallilu Wave around the world. Sad.

      I also feel Netflix is killing the essence of what was beautiful about the K dramas

    while you are watching hyenas hold unto to the true korean essence and values that you are aware of. Then you can enjoy this drama without getting caught up in the American excesses.
    think of it as a legal drama-com about women dealing with the glass ceiling.
