Forever Temporary

I actually got that phrase couple years ago. It was a cigarette advertising billboard but somehow it made me thinks about life in general. I couldn’t get the meaning instantly, instead I kept that in my mind and used to make a conversation about it, also in my mind. And it really stroked me. Because I was agree and secretly hope for that. I know that there is no happy ever after in this life. Because we are actually like walking in a conveyor belt. Time will run no matter how we try to be in a certain phase. In my case, I am stucked at the child phase. It seems that I could not move on and being a true adult. Somehow in my brain, I secretly wish that all of my family and friends will still be there, nothings changed, beside me forever.

Until I watched the last sequel of How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, and seeing how Hiccup and Toothless become. No I was not crying, the mother and son beside me were though. I had an indescribable irritating feel in my heart. I got reminded of the phrase. I got reminded of how our life could be so ended without any warning at all. I got reminded that we at some points have to let our best friends go, our families go, our favorite people go. Suddenly I felt very lonely. I don’t wanna it be over. I don’t wanna be a stranger to them and they are to me. But I know, that it is impossible. I think I am too stuck at the child phase. I can’t let them go sincerely. No matter how often we meet, at some points our siblings can not really care that much about us anymore. No matter how close and aligned we are, at some points our best friends have to live with their chosen ones and living their own life. Sooner or later.. well in my case it is sooner. We become their less priority, and then we become just a good memory. The laughs, the tears and the dreams that we’ve shared become stories that kept inside our mind. It is the hard truth for me. But I guess, it is the lesson that God wants me to learn. I actually got this lesson since I was a kid but I didn’t realize it yet.

Maybe, I refuse to become a true adult. Maybe a peter pan is real after all. I don’t know how to excel this kind of lesson. I don’t know how to put my emotion and to react about all of them. One thing that I know that, maybe, I will always believe that The Temporary things in my life actually could remain forever in my heart.

Prison Playbook (2018)

Woaaah I’m so head over heels with this South Korean Series titled “Prison Playbook” or “Wise Prison Life”. I never thought that I will someday write about South Korean series, because I never thought they would someday produce such several meaningful TV series. And yes I am not too updated with the facts that South Korean has many many many heartwarming Series!!!!

So my little sister is the one who told me to watch this drama because she said it’s good and she’s damn right. Not just ‘like’ it, I think I am in love with the story and the cast and everything.

The story is about a famous baseball player who hit a guy that tried to rape her sister. The guy had a brain damaged after received many hittings therefore the baseball player is sent to a prison. The tv series mostly tell about prison life and the people in it. What I like about this series that it doesn’t focus only on the baseball player himself but also the people around him got a special stories and beautifully told. The director is the same with Reply 1988 if many of you knows, it is a TV series that has been a hit on a couple years ago. I also like that drama but I must say I like this drama more. It seems that the creator and team are having a good development and I’m so happy to see the progress. Well the writer of Reply series and Prison Playbook is also different, maybe that is one of the point that attracted me more. I think I prefer the writings in Prison Playbook than Reply series. When I watched this, I never get boring why? Because I think the creator is a great storyteller. Rather than having a straight dramatic plot, we get to see mixed between flashback and dramatic in every episode. Makes us sometime surprised to where the story lead us. It was really refreshing and interesting. The most important reason of why I want to talk about this tv series of course because of the many life lessons contained in it. One of them is how we actually could find kindness, even in the most hopeless place we think we’re in. Don’t give up on humanity because every single soul in this world deserves to be treated as a good person.

Let’s move to the characters and actors. The main actors are Park Hae Soo and Jung Kyung Ho. They play as Kim Je Hyuk and Lee Joon Ho, they are best friend and somehow supersweet. I don’t know why but I have a thing for bromance. And they made sugary scenes in this series. In this series, Kim Je Hyuk become very popular because of his charm as a great baseball player, so apparently in South Korea a baseball player popularity is considered almost the same as the popularity of an actors or idols.. so you can imagine how “crazy” people will be when they see Je Hyuk in a mall or a restaurant. Meanwhile Lee Joon Ho grew to be a police officer, eventhough he actually played baseball when he was a kid. Baseball is what make them both getting closer and closer. However, they stopped seeing each other when they got into accident and involving their beloved coach too. However when the destiny finally reunite them both, it was beyond magic. I really wanna have a friendship relationship like them, the one which although you don’t get to meet your best friend everyday or for a long time but when you meet them it’s like time was freezing between them, it’s like nothing’s much changed, and their souls keep connected just like before.

Afterall, what I wanna say is, if you want to see a Drama that makes your heart warm, filled with great actings and (for me) perfect story, you might want to watch this. Yes, it is a must watch korean drama !!
