It's just me, thinking out loud

Just sad…

“Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

A friend posted this quote in Facebook, I was actually surprised reading it ’cause I wasn’t expecting that such a quote will come from him, it really was a total surprise. My perception of him is that he’s cold but reading this made me realize that maybe he’s just sad just like the men of my favorite K-dramas. Boys Over Flowers’ Gu Jun Pyo, You’re Beautiful’s Hwang Tae Kyung and Only You’s TJ Han all appears to be cold but they are actually not, they just have their own respective internal dilemmas.

Gu Jun Pyo

Born and raised as the heir of ShinHwa Group, he doesn’t know what it’s like have a real family, how to live as a normal person.

Hwang Tae Kyung

ANJell’s leader, loved and respected by his many fans but deep inside he’s longing for the love of his mother who abandoned him since childhood.

TJ Han

Born as a billionaire, the successor of Dae Young Group but he doesn’t know how it is to have a whole family, his mother left them while his father sees him as a failure.

These three are just fictitious characters but somehow it reveals to us a side of  the human behavior. A man is made up of the events that he has to go through. Each of us are unique because each of us went through unique experiences that makes up who we are.
