Kwon Soo Ah

Recap: DramaBeans

Kwon Soo Ah's Character Description:

Ranked second place in school and a member of the Baek Ho club. Her mother pressures her to become first place and get into an Ivy League school. Hence, she resorts to manipulating the people around her in order to meet her mother's expectations. She is unapologetic for hurting others and insensitive to their feelings.

I must be crazy - of all the character, I am writing about Soo Ah.
She a b*, she did plenty of bad stuff, and she is worth hating. But if you ask me, she doesn't look happy doing it. She looks terrified and super desperate. Every time she sold her soul to the dark side, I am seeing it as the opportunity she really needs to get away from the ledge. The only way out for her.

In my opinion rather than being a solid antagonist, Soo Ah is another misunderstood character in the middle of bustling high school. Her character's background was written very well; it leaves me walking along the love-hate line. You hate her for choosing the dark side, but you can't hate her enough to give up on her because you know the caused to the despicable behaviour.

Soo Ah has been brainwashed by her ambitious mother. The devil with power. Ivy League, Ivy League, Ivy League - that's all she has to say. She made it sound that that is the world, the only way Soo Ah will find happiness. Anybody who grows up with that much pressure, being defined by school rank, and treated no more than just a golden player in a team - would do what Soo Ah did. Fine, maybe not all, but we can agree most of it doesn't develop good personality. The way she talks to Soo Ah is so not mother like and easily mistaken as a consultation. Gah. I hate that scene in episode 10. My heart sunk.

People like Soo Ah always and all the time need chances. Not second chances, but a lot of chance. And at least *one* soul that keep holding on and not give up. It's risky, I know. She can be a pure evil. But hey, there can be hope as well. That is Ha Dong Jae; one soul that is treating her differently from others. Someone who is not affected by her devilish aura (well Dong Jae got kicked out from baseball team because of her). His phlegmatic personality always negate Soo Ah's tantrum.

If you are in Soo Ah's position, wouldn't you wish to have a Dong Jae to be there for you?
I would. I wish I have a Dong Jae during my toughest time.

Everything that happens after Soo Ah's suicide attempt is what a friend should do for another friend. It was heartwarming to see them cheering for Soo Ah and to see how the supports she received have positive effect on her emotional recovery.

It is easy to judge someone.
It is easy to give up on someone.
It is easy to ignore someone.
It is easy to overlook the importance of support.

Enduring is hard.
Reaching out for help is harder.
Admitting that we need help is the hardest.

Soo Ah ya, hope to see you in next episode. Fighting!

Kim Yeol, please stop smiling! Hehehe~

Goodbye Ben Jern

Oh my... another good bye. Why laaaaaaaaaa~!

Today, we bid farewell and we wish a great future to our one and only Loh Ben Jern of #BenHafiz FlyFM. Our heroes of insanity.
It's the final 30 minutes of flying with Ben's craziness... So sad! Huhuhuhuhu. Ben Jern has been on air since 10 PM last night - slumber party katanya - and I only sleep 3 hours plus, listening to him sambil kemas barang.
I know, some of you might think: "What is wrong with this girl, crying over a DJ...". Clearly, you don't know Ben, you never listen to these #FunnyBigBoys #BenHafiz and you never listen to Mrs. Boopathy and Pak Jamil or their Krappi Call. They are the only person on earth who can make Malaysians do *obviously* crazy stuff over a phone call. Hahahaha. Ben is the most adorable talking goat. LOL!

*** They are airing the Grandmother of All Krappi Call again - where Ben finally got krappi-ed *** I was laughing madly in the car earlier this morning... And then I cried. Oh it was su…

Celebrate the Love: Bones and Booth

I have exam at 2 pm today and I've been burning the midnight oil. But I really really really want to share this: Bones and Booth's wedding vow. Well sort of wedding conversation, actually.
I love them and I am happy that the characters finally get their happy ending.

To Bones, the coolest geek I ever known, and to Booth, congratulations!

Booth: "You know, I worked really, really hard on my vows, but you know, now that we're here—look, hey, do you remember the last time that we were here, standing right around this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me, and you chased me down and you caught up to me. I said to you, 'Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row,' right, and then you said to me, [Brennan: "I can be a duck."]. Yeah. We had been chasing each other for a long time, been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and sn…

Getting Out of the Slump

Sometimes I feel like crying will solve everything. When I feel like that, I know I am in the slump - "The New Moon" slump. I called it that because I am in a similar state as Bella Swan in The New Moon after Edward Cullen left her.
"It's like a huge hole has been punched through my chest."
"Normal memories were still dangerous. If I let myself slip up, I’d end up with my arms clutching my chest to hold it together, gasping for air..."
It's hard to get out from this state, but I have bounce back before. It took a lot of patience, a lot of determination, a generous amount of support, and most importantly: a strong will.
The strongest will is fueled by living up to the purpose of our creation - to submit and worship Allah.
Crying does solve everything; when you used up all your energy and cry in your solat and doa.
It is always the darkest before the new moon. And stars are the brightest during this time.

I'll find my way - I assure myse…
