That’s why I read so much ♡
“There’s a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasn’t ‘cause I thought I’d be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and it fell apart, I might not make it. It’s easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don’t have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It’s like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.”
I’ve been watching a Korean drama tonight, IRIS, and there’s this part in the 7th episode that I really liked. We can turn into somebody or something we don’t want to become but we just let things be. Maybe its better to accept love and the whole package it comes with, than to remain who we are now and not love at all.
Seung Hee: They say this statue has a sad story. A very beautiful woman named Tachiko used to live here. She was in love with a man named Tarou. But Tachiko wanted to become a more youthful,
beautiful woman, so she drank from a mystical spring and fell under a spell and became the dragon that protects this Lake Tazawako. And Tarou also became a dragon that protects the Lake Towada way over there. The two of them who were separated like that, meet here in this lake, when winter comes, to share their love. They say it’s because of their unchanging love for one another, that this lake never freezes over.
Hyun Jun: So what you’re saying is that,these two people just wanted to love one another, but they’ve turned into monsters in different places?
Seung Hee: Monsters?… That’s right. Monsters. That makes it even sadder.
Hyun Jun: What?
Seung Hee: The work we do. Because if we keep going like this, it feels like you and I will also become monsters.
Hyun Jun: Should we just give up?
Seung Hee: We can’t do that now even if we wanted to.
