Your world and my world they are different was what Seo Jian told Park Sihoo-ssi’s Choi Dokyung. I have experienced your world and I know what to expect. I hate how your world lives and the rules that you have to abide.
In other words, the world of Choi Dokyung and the world of Seo Jian are two extremes. When they meet, they collide!
Seo Jian chose to completely avoid living the life of Choi Dokyung ever again. Even though she loves him, and knows that he loves her in return, she was prepared to forego any future together in the believe that their worlds would collide and she is afraid of the outcome, on top of her dislike.
She does not believe in nor is she prepared to put herself in a compromised position and meeting Choi Dokyung half way. Instead, she chose to live her own life, her own way and in finding her own happiness.
My personal view on this, and I am sure it will be up for heated debate, is that Seo Jian is too idealistic in her thinking. We don’t live in an isolated world and neither are we creatures without feelings or emotions. She is slowly coming out of her shell and pursuing things that interest her such as designing which she signed up for a course. But people being people, we can’t completely cut off from needing other people, even though we might think we can. How happy can we ever be to cut ourselves off from feeling or wanting love, especially when we see others around us happy and in love?
No doubt, extremes can collide but if the two are prepared to compromise and meet each other halfway, there can still be love and happiness. And two standing together can fend off common challenges and make life more beautiful together.
Choi Dokyung knows how stifling his world can be and he made the first move to breakout, moving away from the extreme. He is prepared to face the consequences and stick to his independence no matter how difficult. Can he convince Seo Jian to meet him halfway and find their happiness together?
I hope so!
