Korean drama also known as “K-DRAMA” has truly proliferated in most of the Asian countries ans USA. Once you started to watch one episode of a series movie, you’ll definitely watch the next episode. Stories are indeed touching in its own ways. Many could probably relate to the stories. Anyways, all of us has our own story. It may just be accidentally reflected by the Korean film makers in their movie series. A typical life story depicting married life, orphan’s life or even a school boy’s life normally appeal to people. Relating daily experiences makes every movie appealing to one’s soul and mind.
I watched this “The world of the married”, a k-drama series with 16 episodes which portrayed different faces of married life. It showed different strong characters making the movie interesting. Love, hatred, fear, revenge, status, prestige in life, betrayal, and courage are the noticeable elements that made the story well blended with the current experiences of most of the couples. Gosan, a village where the life of the characters revolved, displayed the current political, social and cultural environment of most countries nowadays under authoritarian leaders and people who are very particular of their publicity. The main character Dr. Jin Sun Woo portrayed way beyond the Hippocratic role of many in the society. She stood for her right as a woman and as a wife, however, since it is a movie, director would definitely add a lot of twists in the story wherein Sun Woo exhibited a professional character all throughout the story. She was truly amazing in all aspects for showing maturity, eloquent style, inquisitiveness and courage from start to end. Hindrances and the double-faced people surrounding her made her the strongest woman who fought for her rights for her child and the properties she saved for the rest of her life. Life never became easy for her since her childhood. Thus, when she became a doctor and got married, the pity she received from people around her were replaced by admiration. However, whatever situation she faced, she remained very civil to everyone. A characteristic that is lacking to most of the people nowadays whenever they are confronted with a bad situation. Destroying someone’s image or even humiliating or vexing someone for a mistake done will never be an answer to an existing problem. Showing respect to a person’s dignity and personality should always be given importance. Sometimes, because of anger, many of us can no longer control what to say and what to do. The law provides different provisions protecting our rights. We cannot say that we can say whatever we want because we are on our top of our emotion, freedom of speech and expression is not absolute. Still, we should embrace respect despite of undesirable circumstance we are facing or dealing with another person. Sun Woo is a great example for a civilized strong woman of this time.
K-drama always bring us lessons to ponder about. Though, it may be ironic because scenes we watch in every episode may be a reenactment of our past experiences. Relating ourselves to every story we watch makes a story a great story.
