Letters to Me #13 : Lethargic

These days, we spend a lot of time alone at home because of the novel coronavirus. COVID-19 has changed a lot of our things. I heard that jobs are a problem, and the economy has stagnated a lot.

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Letters to Me #13 : Lethargic quote mixed feelings Letters to Me Lethargic depression COVID-19 coronavirus comforting

In the beginning, I had a lot of time, so I did things I haven’t done before, and it was fun and happy. But as time went by, productive activities were needed, and I worked hard to manage myself, but the depression didn’t go away. Aren’t you?

During this period, I read 25 books, watched 18 movies, and 6 dramas. I studied medicine for 120 hours, and I’m focusing on what I really want to do these days. But I slept much more and did a lot of other useless things because I couldn’t concentrate.

In fact, there have been some depressing incidents recently. To confess, I am about three years behind my friends in our career. There’s something I wanted to do, and I’m almost all-in for it. As a result, medicine was a little behind, and it was three years late. Recently, I saw my friends taking graduation pictures. They looked happy. It was a complicated feeling.

In good timing, I got a call from my mother then. It was news from two of my friends who go to two of the best hospitals in South Korea. They are now taking internships. I had mixed feelings.

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Letters to Me #13 : Lethargic quote mixed feelings Letters to Me Lethargic depression COVID-19 coronavirus comforting

Of course, I get blamed. If you spent three years studying without doing anything else, wouldn’t you be making a lot of money by now? Like friends. Like those friends who are smiling and taking pictures.

Actually, I’m still doing it, and I’m not going to give up. I just chose to study medicine at the same time. There are a lot more people who don’t know the value of this work, but it’s really incredible. Time will tell everyone. At that time, your choice was a really wise one.

It’s what I do because I like it, but I can’t avoid being lethargic sometimes. When I was going through complicated emotions, a friend sent me a phrase. It was comforting.

“Do you know why you started it because you wanted to, but why do you feel lethargic? It’s because we are too eager to do well. So when I meet myself who is not good at it, I blame myself. You will also be compared to those who work hard and do well. I hope you can look at yourself warmly who is not good at it. Such a person can last for a long time, and repetition gathers to create capabilities.”

I think it has something to do with loving myself.
I hope this article comforts you, too.

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!

[Mnet K-POP] Queendom : Comeback Battle

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE [Mnet K-POP] Queendom : Comeback Battle 퀸덤 친절한 금자씨 오마이걸 에이오에이 박봄 마마무 러블리즈 너나 해 나의 지구 Queendom Park Bom Oh My Girl Mamamoo Lovelyz K-POP Good Luck egotistic Destiny AOA (여자) 아이들 (G)I-DLE

Queendom (Korean: 퀸덤) is a 2019 K-POP television reality program that aired on Mnet, starring Park Bom (박봄), AOA (에이오에이), Mamamoo (마마무), Lovelyz (러블리즈), Oh My Girl (오마이걸), (G)I-DLE (여자)아이들.

The concept of program is a comeback battle between 6 K-POP girl group acts, in order to “determine the real number one” when all 6 release their songs at the same time.

There was a lot of controversy in the beginning because this program maybe encouraged war between K-POP fandoms. However, as the episodes went on, it became more and more heartwarming as they discovered new charms of each idol.

I watched a video while eating today, and I couldn’t take my eyes off it.

The last performance is great, but the first performance is really great.

Dancing in a group suit is also cool, but the scene where dancers appear in the middle is fatal.

Mamamoo makes good use of each color. This team won. yeahhhh 🙂

It’s a novel concept. olalla

The performance was worth seeing. I hope they don’t get stuck in the frame of being an idol and make good use of their strengths as an artist.

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!

How Pope Francis reacts to COVID-19

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE How Pope Francis reacts to COVID-19 WE ARE ONE Vida Nueva Un plan para resucitar the antibodies of solidarity Pope Francis novel coronavirus Manheelee IMF HWPL Great Lockdown Gita Gopinath COVID-19

On April 17, Pope Francis shares his vision for Covid-19 aftermath in an exclusive meditation for Vida Nueva, the Spanish religious weekly, titled “Un plan para resucitar” which translates as “A plan to resurrect.”

What he said about the current situation is, “If there’s one thing we’ve been able to learn in all this time, it’s that no one is saved alone. Borders are falling, walls are crumbling and all fundamentalist discourses are dissolving before an almost imperceptible presence that shows the fragility of which we are made.”

The situation is worse than we thought. “The Great Lockdown is the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, and far worse than the Global Financial Crisis [of 2008],” International Monetary Fund (IMF) Chief Economist Gita Gopinath said on the 14th of April.

Is there any way to overcome this situation? In such a crisis situation, the ability of the state or company to deal with the crisis is revealed.
In fact, we usually only think this way, but there’s actually one more.
It’s each one of us.

Francis wrote that the only way to conquer the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is through “the antibodies of solidarity.” This antibody “will break all the fanaticism in which we had immersed ourselves and will allow us to feel ourselves to be the creators and protagonists of a common history and, thus, to respond jointly to so many ills that afflict millions of brothers around the world.”

Also he wrote, “If we act as one people, even in the face of the other epidemics that lie waiting for us, we can have a real impact.” I thought it was very similar to Man-hee Lee, the chairman of HWPL, who always shouted “We Are One!” His influence is powerful.

I think people who change the world think the same. All that remains now seems to be for us to practice those words. We can be cool enough. 🙂

Korean Drama l Be Melodramatic on Netflix

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Korean Drama l Be Melodramatic on Netflix 한지은 천우희 전여빈 이병헌 안재홍 멜로가 체질 공명 Netflix Melo is My Nature Lee Byeong-heon Korean Drama Jeon Yeo-been Han Ji-eun Gong Myung Chun Woo-hee Be Melodramatic Ahn Jae-hong

“Be Melodramatic/Melo is My Nature” (Korean: 멜로가 체질) is a 2019 Korean Drama (JTBC) starring Chun Woo-hee (천우희), Jeon Yeo-been (전여빈), Han Ji-eun (한지은), Ahn Jae-hong (안재홍) and Gong Myung (공명).

In fact, the drama’s audience ratings are 1.488 percent on average for episode 16. Expectations for the drama were high even before it aired, as the famous director Lee Byeong-heon (이병헌), who hit the jackpot with some comic films in Korea, was in charge. However, its grades were very low.

I think it was because a powerful program called Show Me The Money was aired at the same time. In fact, the figure reflects only what people watch on TV at home. It would have been lower, since it’s a story of late 20s and early 30s interested in love. Because they don’t watch it on TV but on smartphones or pads.

As evidenced by this, the ratings for reruns were enormous. The drama has also been in the top 10 for five months on Netflix in Korea, and is still watched by many people.

so cute 🙂

I watched this drama because the actor Chun Woo-hee was so attractive in the YouTube clip. Each line of the drama is unique and attractive.

I saw it in Korean, and I thought it would be really hard to translate it into other languages. It’s amazing enough to feel like the best script written in Korean, but if the translation is embarrassing, it might be undervalued.

Most of the people who watch the drama say, “characters are expressed deliciously, and the actors are also very good at acting. The chemistry is perfect, too.” I hope this drama will be your life drama.

Personally, I like this OST the best. I feel at ease when I hear it. 🙂

Korean Drama l The Beauty Inside on Netflix

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Korean Drama l The Beauty Inside on Netflix 한효주 이민기 이다희 서현진 뷰티 인사이드 Toshiba The Beauty Inside Seo Hyun-jin Netflix Lee Min-ki Lee Da-hee Korean Drama Intel Han Hyo-joo

The Beauty Inside (Korean: 뷰티 인사이드) is a 2018 South Korean Drama based on the 2015 film of the same name and the 2012 American social film The Beauty Inside. The original work of 2012 is quite a masterpiece, so I’ll take a look at it first.

The Beauty Inside is a 2012 social Internet series developed by Intel and Toshiba, Directed by Drake Doremus, written by Richard Greenberg, and starring Topher Grace, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Matthew Gray Gubler. (in wiki) It also won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Lions Festival!

2012 American social film The Beauty Inside (Intel and Toshiba)

The key plot is that “every day Alex wakes up, he wakes up in a completely different body. He’s the same person on the inside, but on the outside he’s always someone new.” It’s amazing how they came up with this effective marketing method.

In 2015, the film features actress Han Hyo-joo (한효주) and many handsome male actors. Film’s unique emotional atmosphere and color were pretty. Especially, Han Hyo-joo is really beautiful.

However, the story is not as solid as the original, and there is a lot of criticism about whether the movie really wants to express its inner beauty as a handsome person appears in every important scene. But the OST and the scene are really attractive.

2018 Korean Drama “Beauty Inside”

You can see Seo Hyun-jin and Lee Min-ki’s love lines at once.

This time, the setting has been changed. There are 16 episodes and the genre is romantic comedy. The person whose body changes is not a man but a female lead, Seo Hyun-jin (서현진). It doesn’t change every day, but it has a central body. She turns into a different person once a month for a week.

The man, Lee Min-ki (이민기), who falls in love with this woman also has a disease. Different but the same two have the same painful experience. So, the two can only understand each other deeply and love each other more.

The reason why this drama is the best is because it is so fun. It’s funny, touching and lovely. Cute and pretty!!! It is the best drama. You’ll never regret it. Let me introduce my favorite scene.

So lovely…

In the drama, Seo Hyun-jin is so attractive and lovely. Also, Lee Da-hee (이다희) is really pretty. Maybe you’ll be surprised, too. It’s on Netflix!

This is my favorite OST, “CLOUD” by ROTHY.
“I wanna hug you, maybe I’m crazy” It’s so sweet. ahahaa olalla

COVID-19: Health Strategy at Home

I recently found a good article, so I want to share it.

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE COVID-19: Health Strategy at Home social distancing Katherine Kimber Health Strategy gaining 19 pounds Emotional eating COVID-19 Boredom
Coronavirus: How to avoid overeating when working from home by Christine Ro / BBC WORKLIFE

There’s a meme that was so me that I laughed really hard. It’s “the Covid 19” – a reference to gaining 19 pounds while observing social distancing.

It’s been 47 days since I started social distance. It is better that I have more time than usual but it is also more stressful. So not to blow away time, I’m managing time with Excel. I’m checking the time every 30 minutes.

I slept 6.7 hours a day on average for 47 days, worked 4.2 hours, read books 3 hours, watched movies 4.7 hours, and studied medicine 3.5 hours.
I watched 18 movies and 3 seasons of drama, and I read 25 books.

There were many good days, but there were quite a few stressful days.
How about you? I wonder how you manage. I worked out every morning, took a walk, and it didn’t last long. So these days, I keep trying to eat something.

Boredom… with Emotional Eating

I’ll quote an article. <Emotional eating is “the only coping toolkit we have in our bag – especially during times like now”, says Katherine Kimber, a registered dietitian and spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association.>

Also they said “another stressor at the moment is increased boredom, which is linked with emotional eating.” I totally agree. ahahaa

On a daily basis, Kamau emphasises the importance of structure as a way of boosting wellbeing. “It is important for people to carry on with having aroutine, to try to wake up at set times and go to sleep at certain times,” she says. Also, she said we should know ourselves better, and have a strategy of our own.

I’m a little depressed these days. Because my school said that I will take an exam next week. I want my flow back. Let me introduce her method.

  • five people you can call when you feel down
    • YG, NR, DE, JH, YJ
  • five ways you can relax
    • taking a walk in the morning, seeing cherry blossoms, listening to the Itaewon Class OST and watching Netflix
  • five places you can go to calm down
    • Back mountain, lake, cherry blossom tree and study cafe… (They are all within ten minutes’ distance)
  • five things you can say to yourself
    • “You’re already doing great. I believe in myself. Let me respect myself and love myself. Let’s do it with the best efficiency in the time.”
  • five activities you can use for distraction
    • I don’t know well…

I hope we’ll all be happy for the rest of our social distance. 🙂

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!

Korean Drama 2020 l Itaewon Class OST Playlist

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Korean Drama 2020 l Itaewon Class OST Playlist 이태원 클라쓰 돌덩이 나는 다이아 Korean Drama 2020 Itaewon Class OST I Am DIA

After watching the Itaewon Class (Korean: 이태원 클라쓰) until the 16th episode, I always listen to these songs.

It’s about 25 minutes if you hear it through. :3

The first five pieces of music are good for starting something new. I’m just getting passionate. The music in the back is good for remembering the Korean drama.

There are eight music videos in total. It’s all official.

Personally, I like the song “돌덩이” the most. Also, I like the poem “I Am DIA (나는 다이아)” most. This is on the ending scene of episode 12. If I have a chance, I want to translate it into English.

I will come back with other music next time. :1

15 Minutes Playlist for Peace

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE 15 Minutes Playlist for Peace Playlist for Peace Peace is a promise novel coronavirus COVID-19

These days, many people are self-isolating because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). I want to do things that I haven’t been able to do during this period, and also I’m worried about people suffering from illness.

I want to recommend some songs that make you think.
It’s simple and short. 🙂

I just want you to be comfortable for 15 minutes.

“I’ve found peace far beyond all understanding” and “Peace is a promise You keep” are so impressive. While the phrase “peace is a promise” has never been thought of, it feels good.

I want to live a life that keeps that promise.

I’m not gonna be afraid
I’m not gonna be afraid
I’m not gonna fear the storm

I’m not gonna fear at all

The power of music is great. It creates power in unexpected places. have a communicative power. It is another education. Powerful.

I wish it were 15 minutes to make you feel good. Some of my friends got novel coronavirus (COVID-19). I pray that they are all healthy.

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!
