Legend of the Blue Sea: Dam Ryung and Se Hwa PART 2

Image
The fated bond continued. Dam Ryung and Se Hwa crossed paths again. There seemed to be no land and water that could separate their fate. The cunning Mr. Yang learned that Dam Ryung could be the key to capture the mermaid, he ordered his men to tail on him.


Dam Ryung was shocked when Se Hwa talked. The mermaid responded that there is nothing a mermaid can't do that a human can. Mermaids talk underwater through their mind so there is no need to speak. Later, she told him the story of a boy who heard a mermaid.
Dam Ryung's might have felt his connection to Se Hwa. He became curious about the boy in her story that he wanted to hear further but some villagers were rushing on their way. Se Hwa's safety was at risk so they just made a deal to see each other again.


The story of the boy bridged them to meet again. Since then, everytime Se Hwa see a light above the sea, she would happily come up, excited to meet the man she loved.




Se Hwa continued her story of the little boy. In the…

Legend of the Blue Sea: Dam Ryung and Se Hwa (PART 1)

Kim Dam Ryung and Se Hwa's love story in Legend of the Blue Sea was a very beautiful story of great love. It is derived from the classic tale of a mermaid and the fishermen during the Joseon era.  It brought life to my fantasy of love against all odds. Even how sad the ending was, their story is one that left a mark in the heart, not easily forgotten. And even though their love story was not the focus of the said TV drama, it brought life and color to the entire series.
I haven't had enough of them, really. I am into historical dramas so I was rooting on their story. I wish the writer would come up another 20-episode drama just to chronicle Dam Ryung and Se Hwa's love story alone. I wish!

SPOILER ALERT!!!

I am not into spoiling your thrill in case you plan on watching (well, pretty much everyone's done watching this drama) but I couldn't help myself summarize the "Dam Ryung and Se Hwa's story" for you,  which was only delivered bits by bits thru dream…

Legend of the Blue Sea, Tale of Reincarnation

Image
Legend of the Blue Sea tells the story of two reincarnated souls from different worlds; a man and a mermaid: land and water, their love and their ill-fate.

This 2017 semi-fantasy-historical-modern Korean drama starred none other than the irresistible, handsome, hot and popular Lee Min Ho and the ever sophisticated, an icon and a top hallyu star Jun Ji Hyun, the Sassy Girl!



I remember something I read in a book, which, of course, had something to do with science back in highschool that humans, like plants and animals, do reincarnate after 2000 years. I forgot other information from what I read but I remember vividly the 2000 years and watching the Legend of the Blue Sea reminded me of it. Although the reincarnation in this drama happened way early, after more or less 430 years.

The question: Do we really reincarnate? How couId it be possible? Reincarnation might really happen but no one can certainly attest to the fact. We may born again in the next life, say after 400 or 2000 years as …

One Year in Kuwait!

Image
Happy Anniversary to me and Kuwait! That was on February 18, 2017.

Working in Kuwait was not included in my plans on 2016 but some circumstances brought me here.

Do I have any regrets?
None, so far. I tried my best not to look into the worse side of this Muslim, male-dominated country. As much as I could, I look into the brighter side everyday and remind myself of my reasons for working here and of my goals and plans when I get back to the Philippines, with God's grace.

Let me look back to my 2016, the life before Kuwait and my preparations to come to one of the world's most-feared countries to work for as a housemaid.
New Year's Eve 2016 January 01, 2016 I still have my straight hair then.
My hair, my crowning glory... ah, it has always been my pride for being long, smooth, shiny and managable.
Now? Duh! 💇 First Week of January I was a busy bee getting all my papers done. Couldn't remember how many times I bit my tongue during the processing.
Patience? I have very lit…

Kdrama: Six Flying Dragons

Image
I still haven't gotten over this 50-episode Korean historical drama yet. Six Flying Dragons, this drama left quite a deep mark in both my mind and my heart. It was the most realistic historical drama I have ever seen so far in terms of the portrayal of the real historical characters, particularly Yi Bang Won (Others subbed it Lee Bang Won), which is the main figure.

The effort exerted on the drama by the people working on it sure had paid off for it was truly remarkable, making the drama one of the highest rated, most viewed dramas.

Fifty episodes would likely bore the viewers but this drama left no space of boredom in your brain. Instead, it let your brain work along with the story. Taking an an hour off my sleeping time watching an episode of this drama every night was all worth it! 50 days, it was! 
Now you must have been wondering who the Six Flying Dragons are and why the drama is called as such. It is called Six Flying Dragons because the story evolves around the lives of t…
