Oppa is breaking free!
This review is a day late as I have been on the road…in Seoul. When Episode 30 of KBS drama “My Golden Life” was being aired “live” on KBS 2, my flight just took off, so I couldn’t watch it on Sunday night and could only catch it last night. Of course, I was very antsy at work yesterday, couldn’t wait to knock off for the day and rush home to watch what I knew would be a really exciting episode given that the audience gave it a big thumbs up with a rating of 41.2%!
I wasn’t disappointed, even though my expectation was high! What to do when you simply love Park Sihoo-ssi’s performance as Choi Dokyung? And he was magnificent breaking free from the stifling chaebol upbringing and planned path he had been subjected to obey and follow!
A struggle finding himself. Then he saw light!
Life as a third generation chaebol, a son at that, is not easy, even though he has no want of money, luxurious lifestyle, power and influence. As long as he follows the path that has been set for him, including how he behaves, who he befriends, who he marries and most importantly, obeys every whim and fancy of his grandfather, the founding father of the Haesung Group, he is made for life.
But this means he has no personality, no personal will, no love and no life! And as Choi Dokyung experienced more the lives of the ordinary folks whom he would never socialise with if not for an unfortunate lie, he would never know what life is all about. He would not know the meaning of love. He would not think to lead a life of his own choice. And he would not be breaking free!
But as fate would have it, he met his match and found himself. Now, at the end of Episode 30, he made a brave choice! He was breaking free! Breaking free to find his life and his love! He chose to go on his own, become independent!
Good for you, Oppa Choi! But…are you ready to face life as it comes along without the shelter of your rich chaebol family? I hope you are ready for the turbulent ride!
Liubi, I think you may be right when you said “I have a bad feeling!’ Now that your boss is breaking free, going independent, what will you do? Will you continue to be his sidekick or will you be breaking free too from this crazy boss?
Oppa decided he will breaking free! To be independent!
这篇文章来迟了一天，因为上周末我出国了，去了首尔。当KBS电视剧“我黄金光辉的人生”的第30集在KBS 2台直播时，我的航班刚起飞，所以星期天晚没得看，只能在昨晚第一时间观看。昨天工作时就像热锅上的蚂蚁，迫不及待地等着下班，赶回家去观看我所知道是非常激动人心的一集，因为观众给了这集大赞，达到了41.2％ 的观众收视率！
Choi Dokyung had so many considerations before he broke free
