Looking for some words of wisdom? It turns out there is a lot that can be learned from kdramas. A lot of advice and wisdom is shared as our favorite characters work through their struggles. So naturally, kdramas are a rich source for quotes. And the Three Day Quotes Challenge is the perfect opportunity to highlight some of my favorite kdrama quotes.
A big thanks to justanotheranimefan for nominating me for the Three Day Quotes Challenge! The rules are pretty simple: post a quote a day for three days. It can be any quote from any source (it doesn’t have to be kdrama related). Then nominate three other bloggers who you would like to see quotes from. I’m going to bend the rules a bit and put all three of my quotes in one post so that it has a bit more substance to it. So here we go.
“Everything starts with your heart. Throw away the fear that you will never be the same. If you throw away the fear, everything will be okay again.”
-Master Pal Bong, King of Baking
This piece of advice really spoke to me. Theses words of wisdom were spoken to Tak Gu when he was going through a difficult time. He was afraid his life would be ruined because of an injury, and his fear was really holding him back. His teacher shared the above words to encourage him. His message was that if he could just move past his fear, his life would have meaning again. He wasn’t saying that he would be the same as he used to be. He was saying that once you let go of what you used to be, you will be able to see new opportunities in your life, and that is what would make everything okay again. Life may not be how it used to be, but it can still be wonderful!
“Within each person’s heart is a dark basement. If ignored and only observed, the darkness thickens. You must summon your courage to go down and turn on the light. If you’re scared to go alone, you can hold someone’s hand.”
-Cha Do Hyun, Kill Me Heal Me
This quote highlights the fact that everyone has fears and wounds in their hearts. Ignoring those fears only makes them worse. We need to face our fears head on, even when we are scared. But we don’t have to face them alone. Share your burden with someone and allow them to help you go into the dark basement of your heart. Don’t be afraid to need help, we all do.
“One person cannot change the world, but you can become the world for one person.”
-Enrique Geum, Flower Boy Next Door
This simple quote shows the power of one person. Many us would like to change the world for the better. But that is a daunting task that may or may not ever happen. If you want to change the world, keep pursuing your dream. But in the meantime, realize that you could change the world for one person. There are so many people in need. Maybe you have the ability to change someone’s life financially. Or maybe you could change someone’s world by becoming their friend. Simple acts can have enormous value to other people. Take the time and change someone’s world.
I hope you enjoyed these words of wisdom from some amazing kdrama characters. See, all of those hours of drama watching can be put to good use and teach us something!
