People who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 should be allowed to go to restaurants and cinemas earlier than others, a German minister said, contradicting other cabinet members who have so far opposed special freedoms for those inoculated. Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said the state had massively restricted people's basic rights in order to contain infections and avoid overwhelming hospitals. "It has not yet been conclusively clarified to what extent vaccinated people can infect others," Maas told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper.

The death toll from tribal violence between Arabs and non-Arabs in Sudan’s West Darfur province climbed to at least 48, including women and children, a doctor’s union and aid worker said, as sporadic violence continued Sunday. The deadly clashes grew out of a fistfight Friday between two people in a camp for displaced people in Genena, the provincial capital.

NetflixPanning opening scenes of South Korean high-rises and spaghetti highways to the lush hills of North Korea, Crash Landing on You’s cinematography draws the viewer in before a human character appears.The South Korean drama, released last year on Netflix, was a cultural phenomenon in its home country, becoming the second-highest-rated cable drama in South Korea, with a nationwide average viewership of 21.7 percent—translating to 6.3 million views, according to Nielsen Korea. It was only beaten by 2018’s TV series SKY Castle.Crash Landing on You follows a wealthy South Korean woman who ends up in the demilitarized zone between North Korea and South Korea after being carried over the border by a tornado while paragliding. Yoon Se-ri (played by Son Ye-jin) owns her own fashion brand and is also a chaebol heiress. She disappears a day after her father chooses her to be his successor, taking over a sprawling business empire. With Se-ri presumed dead, her incompetent brothers and their wives climb over each other for the chairmanship. Untangling the Armie Hammer ‘Cannibal’ and Abuse AllegationsAcross the border in North Korea, another drama is unfolding: Se-ri is discovered by Captain Ri Jeong-hyeok (Hyun Bin). The captain hides her with the help of his subordinates whose inattention at their border posting resulted in her escape further into the country. While trying to avoid the attention of a corrupt officer and curious neighbors, Se-ri has to learn to survive in reduced circumstances and without the luxuries to which she is accustomed. North Korea’s authoritarian regime is presented in the slogans on buildings and street poles. Electricity is infrequent and the villagers use coupons to buy food. While the contrasting realities of North and South are presented, the commonalities of both countries are shown. In the absence of leadership, North Korea is seen as a place where communities, like the village women who befriend Se-ri, must help each other and look out for one another. The portrayal of the country was handled delicately and deftly by the producers, who chose to highlight the humanity of its citizens and the day-to-day living of an imagined North Korea.As with most Korean dramas, the two main characters initially repel each other before recognizing their shared love. The more the viewer learns about the couple’s lives, the more we realize they are well-suited. Captain Ri, we discover, has his own complicated family history, hailing from a military-elite family whose position would be threatened if Se-ri’s presence and identity is known. After his brother died in suspicious circumstances, Captain Ri abandoned his dream of becoming a world-renowned pianist, leaving Switzerland and returning to North Korea to serve in the military. He is also engaged to be married to Seo Dan (Seo Ji-hy) a department store heiress. Theirs is an arranged marriage and with the appearance of Se-ri, tension and conflict arise in the love triangle. Another subplot involves Gu Seung-jun (Kim Jung-hyun), a con artist who escapes to North Korea after swindling Se-ri’s brother. We learn that he once dated Se-ri and later falls for Seo Dan, complicating matters considerably.Crash Landing on You’s popularity is owed largely to the chemistry between its two striking leads, Son Ye-jin and Hyun Bin, whose sweeping romance is communicated via a medley of longing looks and very light friction (in many ways, it’s a foil to the randy Bridgerton). Son Ye-jin’s nimbleness, toggling from carefree and comedic to serious and anguished, is perfectly matched by Hyun Bin’s captivating portrait of the emotionally-repressed soldier who will risk life and family to save the woman he cherishes. Netflix Fans of the show, who had shipped the actors for months, were pleased to learn that on Jan. 1, the couple confirmed they are in a real-life relationship. (They’d previously starred together in the 2018 drama The Negotiation). And Son Ye-jin, one of the shining stars of the so-called Korean Wave (or Hallyu), is on the cusp of crossing over into Hollywood, with a feature role opposite Sam Worthington in the upcoming sci-fi film The Cross, helmed by Andrew Niccol (Gattaca).The show, comprised of 16 half-hour episodes, is rounded out by a strong cast of supporting characters, from the colorful soldiers under Captain Ri’s command, to the selfish brothers and the village women, to sinister military leaders and a rogue wiretapper. There’s also a rather clever metanarrative involving a soldier who loses himself in South Korean dramas. While Crash Landing on You has provided a much-needed respite for KDrama fans during lockdown, it hasn’t caught on so much stateside. Which is a shame, because once you get lost in the saga of Yoon Se-ri and Captain Ri, it’s almost impossible to stop.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

The born-and-raised New Yorker seems ready to leave the city in which he made his name – and few will mourn his departure Donald Trump, then a a real estate mogul, in 1985, with an artist’s display of Television City, a development proposal on the west side of Manhattan. Photograph: Marty Lederhandler/AP When Donald Trump leaves the White House on 20 January, reports indicate that he will not return to his home town of New York City but rather, reside at his Mar-a-Lago home in south Florida. Indeed, Trump formally changed his residency to the so-called Sunshine State in fall 2019. Trump’s seemingly permanent departure to a state known for its large population of elderly retirees marks the end of an era in New York, the city where he grew up and moved from its suburbs of Queens to become an icon of brash Manhattan style and wealth in the 1970s and 1980s. “He made his presence known on the island of Manhattan in the mid 70s, a brash Adonis from the outer boroughs bent on placing his imprint on the golden rock,” the New York Times reported in 1983. “Donald John Trump exhibited a flair for self-promotion, grandiose schemes – and, perhaps not surprisingly, for provoking fury along the way.” Trump’s flashiness arguably encapsulated the unapologetic financial excesses of the 1980s and beyond with him sticking his family name on seemingly everything he got his hands on. There have been 17 properties in New York City that bore Trump’s name over time, NBC News reported. Trump became a tabloid fixture, feeding the papers stories about himself, according to the Hollywood Reporter and other outlets. One of them was the famed New York Post cover about his relationship with Marla Maples, who became his second wife. The headline read: “Marla boasts to her pals about Donald: ‘BEST SEX I’VE EVER HAD.’” Trump even had a cameo in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. Macaulay Culkin, as the star Kevin, asks him for directions to the lobby of the Plaza hotel, which Trump owned at that time. While Trump’s cultural cachet was bizarre, it had power. Director Chris Columbus said in a December interview with Insider that Trump “did bully his way into the movie” by demanding that he get a role in return for allowing shooting to take place at the Plaza. The majority of New Yorkers are not mourning Trump’s departure. They long seemed ready for it. When news emerged that Trump was changing his residency, Governor Andrew Cuomo said in as statement: “Good riddance. It’s not like Mr Trump paid taxes here anyway. He’s all yours, Florida.” Cuomo’s reaction encapsulated the feelings of many residents. New York is a blue state, and the city still more liberal; since Trump took office, there have routinely been demonstrations against White House policies outside his eponymous properties. New Yorkers’ dislike of Trump hit new highs last spring. His administration’s mishandling of coronavirus was felt especially deeply in New York City, an early US center of the pandemic. City and state officials begged a seemingly uninterested Trump for help. “How on earth do you think that New York City can get back on its feet without federal support?” Mayor Bill de Blasio said. “Mr President, are you going to save New York City, or are you telling New York City to drop dead?” Cuomo, speaking of the coronavirus-spurred financial crisis in September, remarked: “Trump is actively trying to kill New York City. It is personal. I think it’s psychological. He is trying to kill New York City.” Since many New Yorkers feel this way, it’s not surprising that Trump and his clan have nothing left for them here, except for a sea of legal problems. De Blasio announced this week that New York City was cutting its contracts with Trump’s companies for his involvement in spurring a deadly attack on the Capitol. That means Trump will lose $17m in deals to run the Central Park Carousel, Wollman and Lasker skating rinks, and Ferry Point golf course in the Bronx, according to ABC News. Trump’s cronies speculate that Trump’s departure from New York City could also include his business interests, given his dislike of local and state officials, ABC News reported. Meanwhile, the Manhattan district attorney and state attorney general are investigating Trump’s financial dealings. Trump’s departure from the White House also means that civil litigation against him here might finally proceed, as he can no longer cite presidential duties in efforts to delay proceedings. Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, are not expected to be welcomed in New York City’s elite circles when they leave Washington, according to reports. They purchased a $30m property in Miami’s luxe Indian Creek village. Donald Trump Jr and girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle are also relocating to Florida and are eyeing homes in Jupiter. “There is no way they can stay in New York. They’d be tortured in the streets,” a source told the New York Post of Junior’s impending move. As Trump and his family try building a new life, and potential Maga capital, in south Florida, the ostracism they faced in New York might follow them to some degree. Ivanka and Kushner might struggle with the south Florida social scene. The New York Post quoted a source saying: “The Indian Creek country club members are very picky and the word is that Javanka need not apply.” Even Trump’s appearance in Home Alone 2 has come into question, with Culkin supporting social media commentary in favor of removing Trump from the movie.
