Omnipotent, named he, who
Meant to have begun it all.
Now struck a chord of curiosity
in disbelieving humans. Questioned
for the sake of clarity, when it was
His answers that blew apart despondence.
In this one entity, the world held importance.
In this one entity, the world saw tyranny.
Energy, form and faces unlike two. All
Possibilities they ventured to undo.
Why must definition hover over faith?
Blind faith, you say? Better it is to have some.
More than gratitude for this one,
What prevailed in the previous grows
Abundantly essential. Its a matter of estrangement
That brings us together. In this quest to seek answers
We forget those who urge us to think. We forget those
Whose questions we are here to solve.

You Can’t Snatch That Dream

We all have dreams. We’ve all had dreams since we were born into this world. Dreams change as time passes. Some we achieve and some dreams slip out of our grasp. But dreams they all are. Regardless of  how big or small, they are all equally important. When there is hope, there are dreams. Where there are dreams, there is hope for the future. They are one of the most important ingredients to life.

We all live for our dreams and work to achieve them. Those fortunate, are by all means, a step ahead or so we like to think. But in actuality, those with enough passion and determination to drive themselves to the finishing line, are ten steps ahead. Resigning to fate and blaming thyself or others has never yielded  results. Even ones with very meagre means should able to achieve their dreams. They just have to try.

Innocent and gullible, some people seek encouragement from others. What they don’t know is, in this world, competitive spirit has a higher standing than humaneness. So most often they don’t hear the encouraging words. Bam! There goes another dream. Blown into pieces, for others to stomp on. They’d probably never even know of our dreams. An invisible existence it was. Seen by none, known to none. Whose loss? Ours. So we must not let out an opportunity for that to happen! All the encouragement we need is within ourselves and only we can provide ourselves with that kind of conviction to carry out our dreams.

Also sometimes, stepping out of the safe boundary is not easily accepted. They say “have realistic dreams”. But isn’t that an irony in itself?! Reality is what we make of our life. So any dream that we have is as real as our existence. We should be able to dream high and big without any restraints. Without anyone to tell us that it’s not going to work. We can make it work if we want to.

“You can’t snatch that dream. You can’t make that decision. Only I can.” – is what we ought to be telling anyone who tries to put us down.

Korean Drama Review – Personal Taste

Hey you!
I’m back with another drama review. This one is also  a Lee MinHo starrer with Son YeJin as his co-actor and the leading lady. It has a rather unique plot and I was immediately hooked onto it. Its known as Personal Taste or Personal Preference. This show revolves around the 2 characters, JinHo and GaeIn. JinHo is an architect and GaeIn is a furniture designer. They both stumble into each other, one fine morning. But as fate would have it, they get off on the wrong foot. Later when JinHo realizes that GaeIn is the key to his  success, he decides to reconcile. He pretends to be gay in order to rent a room at GaeIn’s house.
On the other hand, our protagonist here, is dealing with a bad breakup. In her depressed and pitiful state, albeit a little hesitantly, she agrees to lease the room to JinHo. Oblivious to JinHo’s ulterior motive, GaeIn begins to get comfortable with him.  When JinHo (somewhat drawn to her) decides to help get revenge on Chang Ryul (her ex) she agrees. Amidst all the scheming and the etiquette lessons (that GaeIn obviously needs to transform into a swan),  the obvious happens. They begin to have feelings for each other. What will happen when they finally acknowledge their feelings? How long will JinHo be able to keep up the gay pretence?

I grew really fond of this drama since the first episode. It was hilarious from the beginning. There is no beating around the bush or dragging out scenes. The first few times they meet, their constant bickering was really amusing to watch. GaeIn is a clumsy, tomboyish, sensitive and innocent person. She forms strong bonds and gets attached to people  easily. And so when JinHo is even a little late coming back from work, she gets all tensed and worked up. Pacing in the house, sitting out on the steps. And a typical JinHo would snub her for being so “weak hearted and clingy”. But we all know, secretly he was quite pleased that a girl would do all this for him. He can’t hide that from us viewers and die-hard fans 😉

On to the other characters, we have Han Chang Ryul played by Kim Ji Seok. He appears to have a very charming personality apart from the fact that he dumps GaeIn for her bestfriend. Yet I somehow sympathise with him (idk why..). Maybe it has something to do with the super sweet smile of his. In the drama, he seems to be the kind of well brought up, mannered gentleman. So let’s set aside his mistakes for awhile 😀
Then we have Kim In Hee (Wang Ji Hye), a very very very bad person! I strongly detest that character. Cause more than a hundred times, I’ve wanted to yank her hair  for being so evil-queen like. The way she manipulates her words to get what she wants is just UN-BELIEVABLE! :O She’s the character that obviously causes all the trouble throughout the season. Butting into matters that don’t involve her and just simply being mean down to the core. 

Anyhow it is a drama DEFINITELY worth watching atleast once! You MUST! 😀 I believe I’m a little late for saying that. Probably the whole world has seen it and I’m the last person? 😛 Anyone out there? Not seen it yet? 😀
