When I feel lonely

Posted on

This time of the day when I’m all alone, I’m wondering how’s everybody doing. Actually, deep inside I wonder if any of them misses me.

I didn’t ring anyone. I just went online, everywhere in social network places I have account on. Huh.. This is the other black side of me. I don’t communicate well with people. I think I cannot talk as fluently as I write. What can I do?

This time of the day, I wonder if one will just greet me… and talk to me…

Aahh what a dream~

[Drama Review] – Mary Stayed Out All Night / 매리는 외박중 / Marry Me, Mary!

Posted on
Title: 매리는 외박중 ( Also known as: Marry Me, Mary! )
Genre: Romance, comedy
Episodes: 16
Broadcast network: KBS2
Broadcast period: 2010-Nov-08 to 2010-Dec-28
 

This is my personal view of the drama so please note that this review might be subjective. Beware of spoilers!

The reason of watching: I saw the parts of it in youtube it looks interesting. The other reason is because of Jang Geun Seuk (I’ve watched You’re Beautiful a.k.a미남이시네요) and Moon Geun Young (I saw her played in My Little Bride a.k.a 어린 신부).

Review: This drama is light and entertaining. The storyline flows smoothly in every episode. This drama keeps us entertained in each episode with funniness and the drama. However, I did not find many ups and downs of emotions in the beginning until the middle of the drama.

As it is a real drama (not a fantasy one but still a fiction) I can see how real life is led by the characters. This drama is about the working lifestyle, not high school type of life. I got the drunken culture, the entertainment culture (clubbing, drama business, etc) and the everyday life.

It’s a typical Korean drama where there is 2 boys loving a poor girl. Thus you already sort of guess where the story will go. This is the downside of this drama. The ending is also not quite an ending, because there is no final cut like marriage or death or relationship binding kind of thing (As I wanted to). But they end it with what happens in the future.

OST in this drama is also quite nice to listen to (for me). 🙂

The most memorable part:

1. The very climax part when Kang Moo Kyul confessed publicly. (SPOILER ALERT!) It was a kind of handsome act (well, I guess it is very awesome) when Moo Kyul was being kidnapped just before the showcase that Jung In prepared (Moo Kyul works for Jung In). On the way of his journey to the showcase he was kidnapped by Jung In’s father after Mae Ri’s father called Jung In’s father. Mae Ri saw Moo Kyul was kidnapped and tried to stop it by jumping on a police car and chased the kidnappers. Moo Kyul as his hands was injured while saving MaeRi the night before tried to fight the kidnappers and finally jumped out the car. On the other hand, Jung In and the crew were all panicked because Moo Kyul is one of the stars of the showcase he held. Jung In tried to buy time but the crowds are getting louder and asking Moo Kyul to come up. Just that time when everyone was desperate, Moo Kyul came with Mae Ri and walked through the crowds. The crowds cheered. Moo Kyul went up to the stage and while panting, he confessed, he said I love you Merry Christmas! (Merry Christmas is the nickname he called MaeRi). Lastly, don’t forget the fireworks!

2. The part when Jung In and Moo Kyul tries to make each other jealous with their own relationship with Mae Ri. Oh gosh! This part is very hilarious. Must watch!

3. Everytime Moo Kyul laughed at Mae Ri’s father. The similarity between the father and the daughter always cracks Moo Kyul, and how he put on a straight face when Mae Ri’s father scolded him afterward.

Ending: I don’t really like the ending…….. (just because it was not like what I expected to be, sorry)

[Drama Review] 그들이 사는 세상 / The World That They Live in / Worlds Within

Posted on
Title: 그들이 사는 세상 / The World That They Live In (Also known as: Worlds Within)
Genre: Romance Episodes: 16
Broadcast network: KBS2 Broadcast
period: 2008-Oct-27 to 2008-Dec-16
 

This is my personal view of the drama so please note that this review might be subjective.

Beware of spoilers!

The reason of watching: I went around in youtube and still in Secret Garden mode so I searched about Hyun Bin. Then this drama was there in the suggestion box. Just like that. Then because there was not any other suggestion or urge to watch other drama I watched this.

Review: I quite like this drama because after some dramas that I watched, mostly they were all fantasies. This one is a reality drama. I totally love the real-ness of it. I don’t know much, but I learned from this drama about the reality of love story between two people who have very different background to each other and how that can be the reason of breaking up. When one don’t want to be open about one thing, then that can hurt the other.

I quite like the character of the main roles. It is different and quite unique. The male role is charismatic, thoughtful, friendly, neat, tidy, nice, etc. So much like a nice female, i think. On the other hand, the female role is very straight forward, cold, ambitious, rich, etc. More like the male roles in other dramas. This makes the drama interesting.

However, the drama has the downside. Firstly the middle episodes are a bit boring. There were times after they make up again, they were happy for quite sometime, then drama starts to show the life of other people who were there in the drama. Personally, for me, I don’t really care about those other people. I wanted to know how their relationship grow. Whether they finally get married or not.

Secondly, (personally) I think there are too much MA15+ scene. I am okay with those scenes but I think there are too much of it in this drama. But maybe it’s okay for you all. 😛 It doesn’t matter much actually.. hehee..

The most memorable part:

1. The time when Ji Oh got glaucoma and his vision is terrible. Gosh, this is the most heartbreaking scene and the part that makes me worried and scared!!!

2. When Ji Oh broke up with Joon Young for the 3rd time because he realised that Joon Young is very rich and plus other differences they had, and also that many men likes Joon Young and flirt around her. Of course a man like Ji Oh will really feel inferior and terrible. He finally broke up because he tried to keep his pride. (T.T) then the effect of this is REALLY REALLY REALLY emotional that I cried so much.

Ending: I don’t really like the ending…….. it is hanging….. well, sort of hanging…

[Reflection] – Solitary, for how much?

Posted on

I realised that I am a cold person. My dad and friend said so. But then, what can I do?

I reflect on myself. I am a person who is easily scared to make mistakes, scared to experience new things. Well I can face hardship, just if I have to, when I have no other option.

I grew a little courage to face new challenges. But to those small things, I have been ignoring them for so long that I get used to it. I am afraid to meet strangers. I’d rather not say anything then saying wrong words that can hurt people. I hate to hurt other. I am afraid to bother other people. I’d prefer to do my own things alone than I have to make people spend their time to help me. I continuously do this. I thought that this way no one would get hurt.

But actually, no one gets hurt doesn’t mean everybody’s happy. In the end, not talking to other people makes people think I’m arrogant and unapproachable. Not asking for help ended up making a bigger mess that troubles other people more.

Crazy. It’s crazy, isn’t it? One’s trying to do good but ended bad. But what can I do now? This has been my character that I grew up with.

What’s even worse is that when I ended up in those terrible situations, I thought I had to do better on my own. I have work harder that I should not bother other people anymore. I grew up an isolation that I tried to live in my own world. Furthermore, I even thought that it is those people that have to approach me first because I have this character. It is them who ‘need’ me that have to approach me. I then found it really hard at times when it is me that need other people. It’s hard to ask for other people’s help. I cannot communicate well with other people.

As I grew older, I started to realise that I also need other people. I need to make friends and stuff. I need to be friendly and not ignorant about my social surrounding. I start to get a revelation when I saw that people need networks to help to gain their success. I realised I was wrong. I was wrong on the thought I can do it, alone. I can stay alive alone without making much relationship with many people.

But what can I do now? It has been a character that I planted since I was young. I don’t know what to do now. I know I’m wrong but I’m frustrated that I cannot do anything to make it up. Stupid.
