How to make sense of the millennial devotion to Sally Rooney

At 30, her books have sold millions of copies. You can’t escape her on screen either. Do her spare prose, banal intimacies and joyless characters make for epic stories? They don’t. So what has worked?
Rooney’s Normal People has been turned into a TV series (above); more adaptations are in the works. What works for Rooney is that she taps into the malaise of her young audience; even love straggles along like everything else, as the world slowly comes apart. (Hulu)

All-you-can-stream buffets: The food in K-dramas is a cultural coup

Bowls of steaming soup, sizzling barbecued meats, crisp fish cakes — Korean shows are taking their cuisine to the world. Why haven’t we done the same with our dazzling array?
Scenes from Crash Landing on You, a romance series, and Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, about a group of college athletes. Food is an integral part of all South Korean shows, regardless of genre. It’s always beautifully staged too, and shown in delectable close-up.

Photos: Highlights from the National Insect Museum   

The Kikiki Huna: This is the smallest winged insect in the world, measuring about 0.6 mm. The genus Kikiki was recorded in India for the first time in 2013 in Tamil Nadu. It took another two years to find enough female specimens to confirm species identity. “It’s a parasitic wasp which you cannot see with your naked eye,” says Ankita Gupta, the entomologist in charge of the museum and an expert in parasitic wasps. “But it has all the systems an insect should have — six legs, wings, a reproductory and a respiratory system.” (Photo courtesy ICAR-NBAIR) 5
