answer me 1997 (part 2)

I admit, when i love something, i obsessed much. to the extend that i may do the craziest thing i can imagine.

My obsession towards this drama; lets say, i watch raw - read recaps - watch subbed version.

That is how obsessed i can get. now, lets continue with the narrations for the rest of the episodes.

Episode 9 : The thread of fate

They say that people are born with a red string that they can’t see, tied to their pinky fingers, and the end is tied to the one you’re fated to be with. But the thread is twisted this way and that, making it hard to find the other end.

The tangles created by everyone’s threads. If I continue to untangle everything, I, too will end up meeting the person I am fated to be with. If a red thread really does exist in fate, who is at the end of my red thread?
Yoon Yoon Jae

Episode 10 : The reason i like you

The reason I like you? Because you’re that person. Because you’re you. Is there another reason besides that one? I’d rather know the reason if there was one. Then I could find a way to not like you. If I can’t avoid it, then there’s only one thing I want: to remain by your side, unchanged, for long time. For love that′s breaking our hearts.
Kang Jun Hee

Episode 11 : The definition of relationship

We expect different things, look towards different directions, and dream of different dreams. The things that happen between a man and a woman are full of continuous love and war. We turn our backs, and then console each other. We fight and make up. We give each other pain and hugs. A relationship like a manic-depressive patient who can’t make up his mind. But the hardest thing about the relationship between a man and a woman is the timing—if the love doesn’t begin at the same time, it’s unlikely to ever begin at all.

Then, there is one other kind that is more annoying. The one relationship you can’t ever shake, no matter how sick and tired you get, that leads to a lifetime of tears: Family.
Yoon Yoon Jae

Episode 12 : The meaning of a hand

The reason why the teenage years are a stressful period is because we don’t know the answers yet. What I really want. Who really loves me. Who I really love.  The time of life when I tumble here and there, searching for the answers. And then in the end, the moment when I figure out the answers to everything like a miracle… we had already become adults, and been doing big and small things.
Sung Shi Won

Episode 13 : Next time... No, now.

There is no other desperate time than now. It’s because ‘later’ might never come. To talk about a ‘Maybe next time’ instead of the ‘Now’ that’s right in front of us, our lives aren’t that long.

If you give up on now because of laziness or a lack of courage, there is no hope of another opportunity. If you love now, the best timing is right now. Approach it before it’s too late. And confess right now, because you don’t know what will happen later. The next opportunity may never come.
Yoon Yoon Jae

Episode 14 : The heart is what makes you love

Liking someone is not a matter of choice. It’s something the heart makes you do.

You just don’t know who in life is loving you. You just don’t know.
Kang Jun Hee
Episode 15 : While you were in love
But liking someone isn’t something that you can control like a light switch, turning it on and off. Once it’s on, it does’t turn off.
Yoon Yoon Jae
Episode 16 : The reason why first loves don't come true
Even if you bring a lion into a beautiful meadow, that doesn’t mean he’ll give up meat and start eating carrots. No matter what the surroundings are, a lion is a lion, and a rabbit is a rabbit.
Yoon Yoon Jae
Make enough money and just as many memories. There’s nothing worth more than memories.
Sung Do Il
First love. The reason why first love is so beautiful isn’t because first love itself is beautiful. During that time, we had our youth - which wasn’t vicious, me - who was overly innocent, and you - who was uncontrollably passionate. And… because we already knew that we would never be able to go back to our youthful, innocent, and passionate times.
First love is thoughtless. If you don’t calculate and just throw your innocence and passion at it, it’ll end up failing. But that’s why it’s dramatic. The thoughtless stories, mixed with the emotions and warmth that can never be retrieved again. That why first love is my life’s most dramatic story. Therefore, failure is even okay. Instead of a happy ending, a sad ending remains in the memory longer. So it’s okay to leave even just one sad ending of a failed first love in one small portion of my life.
First love is a season. When it passes, it’s gone. Now it’s time to greet the new season and give it a chance for a new romance. Even though we’ll never experience the warmth and innocence from a first love, we have to wait for the romance of an adult, after being matured from the pain of first love.
The person who waits can only dream of love.
And the person, who waits, will miraculously recognize the love that comes one more time.
When romance ends, life takes over. Innocence gets dirtied, passion dies out, and youth starts getting old. So the innocent period of first love wears out and becomes a past event. That’s why it seems like first love never comes true. No one talks about the success of a first love.

scumbag brain

me suddenly thinking of one incident, that happens not so long ago. that cracks me up, by myself.
me, and two of my friends, D and F, were walking to D's car at the parking lot, when suddenly we realized, D didn't lock her car the whole hours we were away.
D : i knew it! how can i be so careless.
me : sokay. lets get out of here. its dark, and creepy. (yes, parking lot is one of the creepiest place ever)
we went inside the car and suddenly...
F : wait! what is somebody happens to sneak in and stay still, in the...BOOT?
me and D turned to F who is sitting at the back. and we can't help having goosebumps. of course, we cursed slightly at F's words.
F : sokay. lets drive away. and when we reach a bumper, hit it hard so we can know if there is really 'anything' back in the boot.
and we cracked upon hearing that. F and her reckless thoughts...
but still, we hit the bumper hard while staying silent to hear if any sound produces. luckily, nothing happened. its just us, and our silly imagination.
yes, sometimes, we cant help but think stupidly. everyone does.

life is a drama

Who doesn't love dramas? I've watched (and still watching) tonnes of dramas in my life. And being an analyst (or i thought i am), there are few types of drama you would caught on screen.

There are dramas that started with a good vibe. Well, first impression is good. They'll keep us wanting more, but slowly, they'll turn sour in the middle. And leave us cursing through the end.

There are dramas that started in slow pace. You would find it boring at first. But somehow, the mood twisted in time, and our hearts changed. And slowly, leave us smiling through the end.

There are dramas that we were really anticipating. Even before the airing. They'll keep us waiting eagerly for the start, but when they really came out, the results are not up to our expectations. And leave us a frustrated heart.

There are dramas that we don't really give a damn. Even when everyone in town talked about it, even when others really loved it, we teases, saying they're not our genre. But when we happened to stuck with them anyway, love struck, and we have to admit, they are good.

There are dramas that keep on twisting and tangling, giving us confusion and hearts fluttering.

Yet, there are also dramas that are straight forward. From the beginning, each plot is foreseen, and run smooth as we expected.

And do you know, that there is a drama, called life?

Yes, life is a drama.

Sometimes it started well, but ended badly.

Sometimes it gives a storm in the beginning, but leaves a rainbow at the end.

Sometimes we get what we expected, others we will be disappointed.

Life can be twisted, or straight forward.

Either way, we are no one to decide.

We can't tell. No one can.

Yes, life is a drama.

Anticipate it.

p/s: i watched dramas in my life. I watched dramas in my drama. I watched dramas in drama?? Huh?? Inception??

answer me 1997 (part 1)

I've always loved quotes. the emotion, the poetic, the beautiful meaning, they always caught me off-guard. i love reading novels with good quotes. i love watching movies with good quotes. and sometimes, i do make my own quotes. i spread it all over my twitter, and i got too emotional whenever the quotes get retweeted.
feel like a boss. teehee.
but now, i wanna share with you, my current passion. the drama i've gotten too attached to, past few weeks. the drama, which blooms with quotes, that has received my love, unconditionally.
Reply 1997 (some says Answer Me 1997). and yes, it's korean.
it's actually a sitcom (because of the short airing time), revolves around a group of teenagers in the 90's. friendship, love, family, love illusion, journey to adulthood, life, they are all blended and mixed beautifully by the writer. yeah, full credit should be given to the writer who was able to write a perfect portrayal of life.
and at the end of each episode, the character narrates some beautiful sayings, which i have fallen into, and gonna share it here.  
Episode 1 : Eighteen
The age of 18, we fall in love easily, and worry too much about little things. the age of 18. the adults usually say at our age, we laugh at the simplest things. but at that time, we were serious. it was intense and harder than other adults.
Sung Shi Won
Episode 2 : Slowly changing
The age of 18. we were growing up, and therefore changing from each other. at the same time, we had to confront another growing pain, that of accepting others.
The law of maturity. a boy becomes a man, and a girl becomes a woman. but the problem is when a boy who grows into a man, and the girl is still a girl. when the timing is wrong…
Yoon Yoon Jae
Episode 3 : Things are not always what they seem.
A secret refers to something i don't know about others. As i find out what i've believed isn't the truth, secrets become even more secretive.
A person’s heart is unlimited. you can’t know how deep it is or where it ends. even though you fight and are ready to kill each other, you end up being affectionate as if nothing happened. even the most confident men can end up becoming idiots in front of the opposite sex.

Yes, the truth is uncomfortable. but if we don’t address the discomfort of the truth, we’ll have to live as the humans who believe something fake is actually real. we must embrace the uncomfortable truth as well. things aren’t always what they seem.
Sung Shi Won
Episode 4 : Fair play
When you like someone, the doors toward her appear in the side and the back. but if you don’t knock, they won’t open. if you stay still, you’ll never get what you want. now, there is no such thing as fair play.
Yoon Yoon Jae
Episode 5 : Life's counterattack
Life comes and attacks you when you least expect it. it might be sadness, or extreme fear. at that moment, what we can do is accept reality and admit we lost. we dont know how life will turn out. there is  no way we can avoid it. we just have to face it, and get hurt once in a while. but at times, life gives us presents that make our hearts flutter, and makes sure that when we experience pain, it exchanges with happiness.
Yoon Yoon Jae
Episode 6 : Love makes you do things you've never done before.
The easiest thing we can do for the person we love is to throw ourselves away. the strength to do things that aren’t in our nature—that’s love.
Yoon Yoon Jae
Episode 7 : Future dream
Future dreams are about reachable, nearby dreams—a career you can attain and make a living doing. who’ll take responsibility if you waste your life on an unattainable dream? that’s why a person has to be content with a close dream. if you chase after a dream that’s far away, your heart will hurt and your insides will burn. a futile passion only leaves heartache. that’s why they say life’s stupidest thing is a one-sided love. but just because everyone says one-sided love is doomed, you can’t give up before you even start, and worry about how you’ll eat and live. more important than what you can do is what you want to do. so let’s start with that. you only live once.
A person needs to be satisfied with a goal that is near them. aiming for something so far away is only greed and will cause so much pain. it’ll only end up as a scar in your heart. that’s why the stupidest thing you can do in the world is love one-sidedly. but the reason why that stupid one-sided love is worthy trying is because sometimes that passion creates miracles and sometimes it comes true after going around and around. it also offers chances to get close to that dream, even if that dream itself is impossible to achieve. 
Yoon Tae Woong
Episode 8 : D-Day
During WWII, to end this tiresome war, the Allied Forces attacked the German Forces. planned as a night attack, it was named D-Day. to prepare for this decisive D-Day, strategies must be perfect. you must know exactly where your enemies are. you must understand your enemies. you must be able to read your enemies' mind. you must not be careless, thinking you've prepared perfectly. on D-Day, there is only victory, or failure. my life’s first D-Day. November 18, 1998. i had prepare perfectly, but it ended in failure. the cause of defeat: reconnaissance failure.
Yoon Yoon Jae
Its only half of the drama and this post had already be this long. didnt planned to write much longer (well, its just a copy and paste though), so, i'll stop here. be right back, or in internet slang, brb.
p/s : i only posted out the narrating part, because i felt the most emotion during that part. oh i love this drama so much, couldn't help but to make it part of my farrakaka.
