Kdrama special: Life is Beautiful


I just finished watching this 2010 Korean Family drama called "Life is Beautiful".

This is not a review about this wonderfully crafted drama but a repository of my emotions and mumbles caused by watching this drama.

My heartstrings were pulled non stop during the entire 63 episodes (more than an hour per episode). I laughed, cried and reminisce about my life.

I wished that my parents watched this Korean drama so that they can understand me more.

Watching Tae Sub's life unfold is like re-living what I went through growing up. Just thinking about it makes my throat constrict and cry. I can't put into words how I feel. All I can think about is the loneliness, the fear that I felt growing up. The hole that I can't seem to fill up in my soul. The many times that I think about suicide as a solution to this loneliness and fear. It got better but there are times that these feeling haunt my consciousness.

On lighter note, this is one of the reasons why I'm addicted to Koreans ;)
