I’ve been sitting a lot these days, what with school over, and just finding and waiting for job opportunities. I realized that I have so much time in my hands, that I decided to use them by backtracking on old Korean dramas that really took Hallyu to the next level.
I’m talking about the Endless Love series. I have finished watching Autumn Tale, and currently got some free time on my hands while waiting for the series to buff on YouTube. Anyway, I’ve already talked about a previous topic within the drama, and thought of putting up another one.
Time-tested love versus Fated love. I haven’t been in love; well, none that you can categorize under the two. And to be honest, I can’t quite put my finger on which among the two am I supposed to believe in.
People say, however, that the time spent by two people together does not determine the love they have for each other. Sometimes even, time also cannot determine how much two people know about each other. I believe things like knowing about each other comes naturally. So does fate. Love that happened within the confines of Fate can never be forced, and it can never be helped.
Although practically speaking, love tested by time is usually the safest to go with. But that does not guarantee that Fated love can make any two people be less happier.
I am currently watching Summer Scent, the third season installment of Endless Love, with Autumn Tale and Winter Sonata as its predecessors. I have finished watching Autumn Tale, but I still can’t bring myself into watching the second one (even if winter is my favorite season!).
Anyway, the first or second episode brought about a discussion of the two leads regarding the similarities of coffee and love.
When the topic was opened up, i couldn’t help but think, “They both end in ‘e’!” But of course, being a drama (and having a lot of viewers to boot) they gave out deeper similarities among the two, such as both being sweet and bitter, and having different varieties. Coffee and love also supposedly comes at different times, but they are best enjoyed hot. You also crave for more, especially in a rainy day/night. You start loving it when you get older, but you crave for that one special taste you have gotten yourself used to… they went on discussing numerous similarities between the two that I thought maybe there are really more to coffee and love than are the obvious.
I am starting to really enjoy watching dramas. It’s as if I hit two birds with one stone: I enjoy watching and learning a lot of different techniques regarding the life behind the lights and cameras, at the same time I learn about lessons in life – whether they be realistic or not.
Anyway, who would have thought that there would be more to coffee and love than just ending with the same letter?
