‘Tis the season for excuses right now. Unfortunately, right when I thought things were dying down at work things started going crazy at home. This past week I have been largely incapacitated thanks to a failure to properly read labels. Here’s my issue: I can read books with the finest tooth comb, but when it comes to packaging labels my eyes glaze over and I hope for the best.
If you haven’t noticed I have been inactive for the past two weeks and for that I am super sorry. Unfortunately, I’ve been ridiculously busy at work and at home. I was in the process of moving (now I’m in the process of unpacking), and the past two weeks have been one of the two most hectic times of the year for my job. Thankfully, things are starting to die down and return to some kind of normalcy at work, so hopefully I’ll be able to get back to posting regularly.
Another negative though of the hectic-ness of life is that besides not being able to write or post, I also have had zero time to read or watch anything. These days I get home and fall immediately into bed, so I wouldn’t be expecting longer posts for the next week or so.
Nevertheless, I’m feeling upbeat and am excited to jump back on the wagon of reading regularly! So, please don’t lose faith in me. I’m not planning on disappearing for two years again, I swear!
Come for Lee Min-ho, stay for Kim Woo Bin.
The Heirs is the second K-Drama I have watched and my experience with this one was very different from watching my first, The Legend of the Blue Sea. The two shows share their male lead, Lee Min-ho, but that’s about it. The premise of The Heirs centers around Cha Eun-Sang and Kim Tan. Eun-Sang’s mother is the housekeeper to Kim Tans wealthy family; Eun Sang and Kim Tan meet in America when Eun Sang visits her sister in America to give her money under the belief she is getting married. Eun Sang hopes to stay in the States to find a better life, but finds her sister is not getting married and instead she takes the money and runs, leaving Eun Sang devastated.
Kim Tan watches the heart-wrenching exchange of Eun Sang fighting with her sister and after an unfortunate disaster feels compelled to help her. The two grow close over the next few days, but Eun Sang eventually returns to South Korea and treats her time in America as a dream. Kim Tan, who was exiled to America by his elder, half-brother, Won, decides to return to South Korea a few months after Eun Sang leaves. His return causes great disturbance amongst his family and for Eun Sang, once he realizes she lives in his home. He consistently pursues Eun Sang, causing much strife for her particularly from their classmates at Jeguk High, a high school filled with wealthy and cruel elites.
I don’t generally reread books. At least not in their entirety. When it comes to me re-reading something, it consists of me pulling the book from the shelf and reading my favorite sections(s) then quickly returning it to its designated spot. I don’t often sit down and take a book I’ve already completed for a second or third spin.
I’m not sure when I got to a point where I stopped re-reading things but I don’t remember a time where I was ever really interested in doing it in the first place. If I wanted to deep dive into the psychology of it, I could probably explain it away. Keep on reading!
