THINGS WILL BE FINE WHEN YOU TURN 30
For me, it's a good drama if I can relate to it. That's why I love to watch dramas that I can connect with.
When you reach 30, there are lots of feelings that will pour on you. The good thing is you can handle it somehow. Maybe you become much stronger through experience and hardships that have happened in your life.
Be melodramatic is a story of the life of three friends and the people around them. These three friends start living in one roof due to some circumstances. This drama portrays how life is when you are already 30-ish. Life is sad, depressing, hurtful, funny, plain, happy and crazy, just like how our lives must be. This drama made my heart warm and blessed. I like it. :)
I watched it like there's no expectation what will happen because it was designed in that way. It shows our daily lives, and we just feel connected to each character because their situations happen to us all the time. It's like your life was being opened up in a 16 episode drama. Awesome soundtrack! And the random drama they mentioned was really fun. Most of the time, I can relate to it and these are some realizations that hit me.
Warning: IT CONTAINS SCENE SPOILERS.
CLUBBING IS NOT AS FUN AS IT USED TO BE
I loved partying when I was in my 20s, but now it's not as fun as it used to be. Meeting and flirting with random people changes because unconsciously you raise a barrier and do not trust people as much. You just like to dance, to have fun with your close friend, drink but not get drunk... You just want to release the stress that the world gave you and then have a late-night snack or another dinner, because the worries about your diet are not that important when you see good food.
WE LOVE TO EAT AND DRINK IN A MORE RELAXING ENVIRONMENT
When you dedicate all the time of the day to your work, meet and deal with people every day, lengthen your patience because your boss is such a pain in the ass, well... You just need that quiet time when you can enjoy good food and cold beer, and just sit in there and watch tv, or just do nothing. We just love that quiet moment.
THE PAIN THAT YOU HIDE FOR A VERY LONG TIME, YOU WILL EVENTUALLY FACE IT AND DEAL WITH IT
Somehow I, or we, have the habit of locking our pain in the deepest dark part of our hearts and minds because it's just hard and depressing. We pour ourselves into work or just plainly not do anything. But maybe the maturity will hit you, and you will start to open it up, deal with it whether with your friends or with yourself. Admit that you are hurt. Crying for many hours or sometimes swearing is also okay.
LIFE DOES NOT ALWAYS GO ACCORDING TO YOUR PLAN, BUT YOU NEED TO DEAL WITH IT. SOMEHOW THE LUCK OR OPPORTUNITY WILL CATCH UP TO YOU
When you are young, you just have that energy and ambition to be successful. Maybe many get their dream job and are happy, but some people are not that lucky. So what will you do? You just need to do your best on your current job and work hard, so maybe someday you will get that fruit of labor that you deserve. Or maybe you just want to have a way to survive in your life or you have a simple goal, like buying a bag or treat yourself in a buffet. And that's okay!
YOU DO WEIRD OR RANDOM THINGS SINCE YOU DON'T CARE MUCH ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE THINK OF YOU
Yep! Pretty much! You will do random things that made you embarrassed when you were young. Now, you just want to feel good in simple things, like riding in a small cart for kids or just randomly shout out at a street, do some cheesy things with your closed friends or colleagues without any attachment, or just walk alone in the middle of the night.
In the office, I just randomly do a weird stunt, dance or sing, even when I don't know the entire lyrics. My office mates and friends get annoyed or laugh out loud. They got so used to it that if I'm not doing that, they just concluded that I have a big problem as they are not accustomed to me being quite. LOL... You just embrace the life that you have!
LOVE IS NOT ALWAYS A FANTASY ROMANTIC HAPPY ENDING DRAMA
Sometimes you will realize that having a relationship is not always love at first sight or as sweet as candy. And sometimes, finding a partner is finding someone you are comfortable with while doing crazy stuff or just doing nothing. It's not always exciting, but it's enough. It will not hit you like a bus, but it comes with a story and builds that foggy, awkward relationship. Whether the ending leads to happiness or suffering, when you look back after many years, it will become an important and funny memories that you will treasure in your life.
It was a really fun riding with this unique and interesting plot. Not sure if younger viewers will love it, but if you give it a chance, you will learn many things.
“A dream doesn’t have to be such a grandiose thing, doesn’t it? A goal would suffice. Like I’m going to buy that when I get paid, or I’m going somewhere when I get some time off, or I’m going to work for someone.” -Mikoto-
LOOKING BACK, LIFE IS UNPREDICTABLE. THAT'S WHY SOMEHOW IT'S FUN AND MEMORABLE, WHETHER IT'S GOOD, BAD OR VERY DRAMATIC. AND WE TEND TO DO CHILDISH THINGS. :)
ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE :)
