Check out this footage from the Korean TV show Special Investigation Report, which is more commonly referred to as "Joseon X-Files." What's it about? A pair of UFO investigators sleuthing during Korea's Joseon Dynasty. Matthew Bey of No Fear For the Future has seen half a season, and even though the production values aren't always tip-top, the X-Files allusions are enjoyably apparent:
The X-files comparison is hard to avoid. There are two investigators, one with a mysterious past, the other filled with skepticism, who must investigate bizarre events at the behest of covert government forces. There's even a "smoking man" character who smokes an insanely long pipe.
Here's a synopsis of the first episode (which came out this summer), and the introduction is below. File this under "Unlikely But Nifty Cultural Mash-ups."
