The Tale of Nokdu quotes (Korean Drama)

I thought I could say this to you if I was drunk. I wanted to tell you to leave me. I think I have a similar drinking habit to yours. I drank because I thought I could say that to you in a drunk state. But after getting drunk, I did not want to lie. I wanted to tell you the truth. This is what I truly wanted to say. Do not leave me. I know that I am irresponsible and selfish. You can blame it on the alcohol. But I still… No matter what I do… Even if I become a terrible person who committed something heinous, I wish you could remain by my side. (Jun Nokdu to Dong Dong Joo)

~Jun Nokdu

 

I will wait so give me your sincerity. I lied when I told you that your sincerity does not matter. You can take as long as you wish. I want your sincere heart. That is the only thing I ask of you. (Cha Yul Moo to Dong Dong Joo)

~Cha Yul Moo

 

I can lie and promise you that I will do that. But you and I both know that one’s sincerity and affection for someone are not something one can work on. (Dong Dong Joo to Cha Yul Moo)

~Dong Dong Joo

 

I know full well that I have no right to stop you. But why don’t you know that this isn’t the right path?

Your heart has already been hurt like this and yet you say you are going to do such a thing?  You will?

~Jun Yoon Jeo to Jun Hwang Tae

 

I know. But… what did we get by taking the right path? Mother died and everything I believe in collapsed!

I am a great bait. That stupid kid, even when I get angry and run away, even if he’s about to die, he won’t be able to let go of me.

~Jun Hwang Tae to Jun Yoon Jeo

Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency quotes (Korean Drama)

I only believe in things that I can see. Once cornered, love is the first thing that changes. (Ma Hoon to Lee Soo)

Do you have any idea what you have done? Due to your reckless words, someone’s life might have changed. Listen carefully. When you wish to help someone, make sure you have enough knowledge to do so. (Ma Hoon to Gae Ddong)

~Ma Hoon

 

Once cornered, love also becomes the most firm as well. (Lee Soo to Ma Hoon)

~Lee Soo

Perfume quotes (Korean Drama)

When I was struggling to live, my fate kept pushing me down while telling me to die. But once I gave up and tried to die, it told me not to die. It kept telling me not to die and pulled me up. The person who pulled me up back then was you. Thank you. I will never forget it. (Ye Rin to E Do)

I think real love is different. When you really love someone, it isn’t always comfortable and warm. You are uncomfortable and lonely more often. (Ye Rin to Min Suk)

To me, clothes were simply a tool for hiding my body. I hated myself. I was pathetic and ugly. I didn’t want to look at myself. How could someone like me become a model? Only people who are special and exude confidence should be models. (Ye Rin to E Do)

~Min Ye Rin

 

Most comets are balls of ice. Tons of water and ammonia are frozen together. You are seeing pieces of them that travelled through the cold and lonely space for a very long time that are fatigued and are breaking off and falling. However, the moment they are fatigued and give up on their journey, the comet meets the warm atmosphere and gives off the brightest light in its entire life. Love is like that. You will meet someone too. Someone who will make you shine brighter than anything in the world. (E Do to Ye Rin)

Designers must actualise the demands of the era and the desires of people through clothes and models must express the designer’s ideal and vision for that outfit precisely and beautifully. But you fear clothes.
You are special too. You draw my attention. No one in this world can become special on their own. Once someone appreciates that person’s worth, that person becomes special.
(E Do to Ye Rin)

I guess I wanted you to loathe me. I needed that to comfortably hate you. (E do to Min Suk)

~Seo E Do

Random thoughts 12

Hello everyone! Long time no post.

Was busy with school work recently so didnt have the time to write any review and I may be busy preparing for examinations soon. I think I will not write Random thoughts anymore unless there is something special to write about. This will add more review writing time for myself. If you want to know what we are up to, you can follow our Instagram dramacream_jiaminying or Facebook Dramas Shows Life. There will be recaps of dramas and shows we are watching via videos and grid posts, and also what we think about the dramas and shows.

Currently watching Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency and Extraordinary You. Extraordinary You is the only fantasy drama at the moment haha, too sad. The pace of Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency is just nice at the moment to me and the plot is good. I am rooting for Soo to go with Gaettong. Based on my experience with Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter, I feel it is likely to happen. Besides, Hoon has traits that make me feel that he is the second lead. Although people think that Soo is the second lead, I feel that Hoon may be the lead for this drama since the focus is on match-making but he may not get the girl (unless Gaettong doesnt like Soo enough or she believes Soo is dead).

Melting me softly is a bit dry to me, the feeling it gives is more like I am watching a documentary. Vagabond makes me feel like I am watching a crime-related drama so I may drop it. Scanned through Welcome 2 life and Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung. Welcome 2 Life is crime-related while Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung is slow-paced. However, there are things I like about them.

Benefits of watching dramas

I have heard some people say that watching dramas is useless and there are some that wonder why people would watch dramas so I decided to write a post about it to answer them once and for all. Besides entertaining and making one experience various emotions like happiness and sadness, watching dramas provides life benefits.

Dramas help us
1) Become better people

-We learn to make better decisions.
Seeing the consequences of certain decisions prevents us from making the same decisions.
E.g. We should not say mean things and break up because we have a terminal illness or some problems that cant be resolved that happens often in dramas. The other party has the right to know the truth and it is better to face it together. If the other party wants to leave after you say the truth, you can let the person leave then. Sacrificing yourself for another’s happiness doesnt make you a hero if you harm the person in the process.
E.g. The importance of being courageous to avoid regrets
E.g. Dont pick up broken pieces of glass. I realised I have the temptation to do so too haha.

-We learn not to jump to conclusions.
Misunderstandings often happen in dramas because characters jump to conclusions. However, it is often revealed that there are other sides to the story and what u see may not be everything, what u think happened may not have happened. Besides making us think twice and find out more before coming to a conclusion, dramas make us more understanding towards others. There may be another side to the story of others that we dont know of.

-We can develop a better moral compass.
For eg., we should not harm others physically and mentally no matter what, we should take responsibility for our actions and correct our mistakes as soon as possible, we should stand up for what is right

2) Gain knowledge, broaden our horizons

-We can learn about various industries
Dramas have different settings and each of them usually focuses on a certain industry. Scriptwriters and drama producers probably did a lot of research on the industries they want to focus on so we will be able to gain insights into the industries just by watching dramas. It is interesting to learn about various industries without the need to personally work in them.
E.g. Medical industry, floral industry, fashion industry, food industry, media industry, architecture industry, crime related and legal industry, writing industry and many more

-We can learn ideas to be more romantic
No harm having more romance in a relationship/future relationship, isnt it?

-Dramas are perfect places for people-watching
I dont like to watch people in real life but I like to do so when watching dramas. When watching dramas, I can gain awareness of the motivations behind why characters act in a certain way and what actions will lead to what consequences. Most characters who do bad deeds are not hateful as there are reasons why they did what they did. Some characters who are foolish may make me angry but I am happy to see them grow and change. For characters who are talented, confident, and smart, I can learn a lot from them.

3) Reflect on life lessons

We can mature faster if we see dramas in a different light. If you are just on the surface admiring good-looking people (which I do too) and only seeing romantic scenes, then you are missing out on the reflective nature of dramas. I like how dramas make us reflect and they can be our life teachers.
E.g. Some dramas teach the importance of time and how we should make good use of it. Is it better to have a short period of time of bliss and be with people you like or not at all to prevent more sufferings later on?
E.g. Is it better to go after what society wants you to do or to go after what you want to do? Is it better to go after what society desires or to accept yourself for who you are?
E.g. Are people/living things who are different as harmful as they seem? Are people who are the same harmless?

To conclude, people may have a hobby for various reasons. There is no such thing as a useless hobby (as long as u dont harm others and urself) so we should respect whatever people like to do. Anyway, if you dont watch dramas, you are actually missing out on a lot without you knowing haha.

我的奇妙男友2之恋恋不忘 My Amazing Boyfriend 2 quotes (China Drama)

薛灵乔:

“这不是一场梦。生命中出现的每一个人都有他的使命。因为小福星,我重新回到了你身边。因为云臻,你认识了叶美笑。因为白露,我们体验了初为人父人母的幸福。热热闹闹终会过去。平静安稳的一生才是我希望拥有的。小福星的使命已经完成了,所以他走了。田净植,对不起,是我让你变成了没有安全感的人,总担心着某一天我会再离开。
我再也不会离开你了。”  (ep 24)

“第一,无论家里发生多大的事情,夫妻要同心,不要影响夫妻关系。第二,无论家里发生多大的事情,都要好好吃饭,不能拿自己的身体开玩笑。第三,无论家里发生多大的事情,都交给老公就好了。你老公是超级人类。如果是连你老公都解决不了的事情,那你也解决不了,而且你老公既要担心你,还要担心家里的事,不觉得很可怜吗?” (ep 33)

 

田净植:

“我还能有什么办法。我只能把他从我的人生中慢慢地剔除。对他来说,一辈子很长。但是对我来说,一辈子很短。我再爱他,我也想过好这一辈子,我蹉跎不起啊。” (ep 18)

“美笑,你说现在这样的幸福我真的能够抓得紧吗?喜欢的人,可爱的儿子,家庭和睦,总觉得有点不真实呢。” (ep 37)

 

云臻:

“这世界上本来就是有不同的人。有些人有远大理想,不甘于现状,比如你。有些人正直正义,坚持自己的原则,比如房东大哥。还有些人勇于牺牲奉献,比如蝙蝠妹妹。那当然也会有我这种喜欢吃喝玩乐,不喜欢被束缚的人。但即使如此,我生而为人,也是懂得知恩图报的。” (ep 33)

“作为你的男朋友,我真的很不负责任,总是让你伤心。不过,这是最后一次了。说不定这也不是坏事。跟我在一起那么辛苦,我大概再活八百年也不会成熟,永远都是这个不争气的样子。这样的我竟然被你这么好的女孩子看上,我一定是世界上最幸运的人。可惜,我没有这个运气。我真的好想再陪你几十年。你这么好看,老了也会很好看。想到这么好看的叶美笑以后要嫁给别人,我真是忌妒得快疯了。不行,一想到会这样,我真想立刻跑回家算了。
反正,叶美笑你记住,这辈子你可以出轨,但下辈子被我云臻预定了。” (ep 34)

 

叶美笑:

“幸福就像这个气球。你摊开手心,它就在你手里。你握得太紧,反而会两手空空。” (ep 37)

Watched Star Awards on the day that it was screened but I am not going to write a post on it as I am quite lazy haha and also it was not that different this year. Was a bit unhappy that Mind Matters didnt win any award but I kind of expected it since the awards dont usually go to where I want them to. I wonder when Ivan Lo will get the Young talent/Green Apple Award. He should have gotten it long ago. One of the highlights is Eric Chou (one of my sister’s favourite singers) singing 2 of his songs haha. Still sad about Aloysius Pang’s demise whenever I think about it. Never thought I would feel sad for a real person’s death if I am not close with the person. Saw Jerry Yan in Star Awards and Trump Card vs Trump Card 4 and I am getting curious about Meteor Garden 2001, even though I dont like to watch remakes. I happened to watch Boys over Flowers first. I am a fan of Vic Chou so I may try it out.

Just finished He is psychometric which is the first kdrama that I finished watching every episode after Are you human too. It is creepy and morbid but the fantasy is good and the cast acted well. I am in the process of scanning through My Poseidon which I feel that it is not good enough due to the bland plot revolving around the company. Watching because of Zhang Yun Long. Finished some of the China variety shows like Gao Neng Shao Nian Tuan and Trump Card vs Trump Card 4 with my sister. Finished Run for time 2 some time ago too. I watched Trump Card vs Trump Card 4 because of Hua Chen Yu, one of my most favourite China singers. Looking forward to Abyss kdrama which has fantasy haha… Put aside Singapore Drama Hello from the other side near 1/4 or 1/2 way. The starting and fantasy are good but there is a lack of interesting plot development after some time. See if I have the motivation to watch more and write a review about it later on. My sister and I feel that we wouldnt want to live in that other world if we were to die. That world is like continuing the life of a human and we have to continue caring about having money etc.

Will write a review soon when I have time. Long for you 2 first followed by He is psychometric. Thanks for the support!

Clean with passion for now quotes (Korean Drama)

Cleaning is physically taxing and many people still look down on the profession. I admit it.

However, I dont think that can explain everything we do. Cleaning isnt simply about getting rid of dust and garbage. I believe that it can make someone’s life a little more hopeful. What I have felt since starting this business is that I could see hope on the faces of our clients who were satisfied with our cleaning service. A belief that their lives can get better. It gave them such a small hope. I trust that cleaning has a positive power. That’s why I am proud of what I do and it is also the reason why I deeply respect all my employees.

~Jang Sun Kyul

 

It must be hard. Washing up and getting changed multiple times throughout the day. And maintaining this level of cleanliness both at home and work must require a lot of time and effort. I suddenly thought that it must be very hard.

I’m sure there’s a reason for it. Just like me. This will sound like an excuse but I thought even taking showers was a luxury when I had multiple part-time jobs. I gave up washing my hair and got 10 more minutes of sleep and I gave up changing to fresh clothes to study more. Living like that for a while turned into a habit. I’m sure your reason is different but you must have a legitimate reason as well. Everyone has a story.

~Gil Oh Sol

 

I am thinking of confessing my love too. If I miss this opportunity, I might regret it later. It’s you, Oh Sol. The person I want to protect.

~Daniel Choi

Currently, there is a kdrama drought even though my friend is enjoying her time watching The Last Empress. Or maybe there is a serious kdrama drought since Are you human too? My sister, as usual, is still having some China Dramas to watch. Dont know how she find so many China Dramas haha…

I am now spending some of my drama time watching the latest Running Man episodes and China variety shows like Run for time and Who’s the murderer. I watched until ep 8 for Clean with passion for now which is not too bad but probably not enough tension or interesting plot development to keep me going. I chased Memories of the Alhambra until episode 6 then the pace dropped quite a lot and I scanned through it. The light in your eyes doesnt seem to be going in the direction I wished it will. Liked the acting by Nam Joo Hyuk and Han Ji Min, and the fantasy. Liked Park Sun Ho’s acting in The Best Chicken but not really attracted to the plot haha. Watched 2 episodes of The Crowned Clown because of Yeo Jin Goo but the plot doesnt attract me. Dropped The Last Empress after the first episode. Thought there will be some fantasy involved but there isnt and it is more of a “high intensity” revenge story.

My sister and I just finished watching Long for you 2 China Drama together and it is considered good but I have to go back and watch the first few episodes since she watched those without me. Liked the fantasy in it! Watched episodes 11-14 for Emperors and me. The funny thing about this drama is that whenever the female lead time-travels to a historical time period, she brings back the emperor of that time period to the modern times. But this drama is a bit too brain-cracking for me and I dont feel like watching the scenes where the emperors try to get used to their new environment and fit into the modern times so I may not watch it. My sister and I started on Singapore Drama Hello from the other side as it has fantasy involved, even though it may be a bit morbid.

Hope I will get some motivation to write some reviews haha.
