Our Blues – Down Syndrome story that made us cry

This story deserves a dedicated post.

Latest episode aired this weekend made its highest viewership rating so far. And for me is a beautiful mix of heartwarming and heartbreaking.

Episode’s story is about Lee Young Ok (played by Han Ji Min), boyfriend – Park JungJoon (Kim Woo bin), and the appearance of Lee Young Ok’s twin – Lee Young Hee (Jung Eun Hye).

Lee Young Hee has down syndrome and many viewers were surprised to her appearance that added a beautiful touch to the series. Netizens’ comments after its airing; “I cried when I watched the broadcast then cried again when reading the comments”, Wow, I did cry a lot”, “This one drama makes me feel like watching the documentary ‘This is Life’ several times”, etc.

Of course we all cried!

I have a soft spot for people like Lee Young Hee, plus she is an artist and as an artist myself I was really touched by their story.

The reason why viewers got emotional was that Jung Eun-hye is actually a person who has Down Syndrome. Jung Eun-hye, who plays the role of Young-hee, who dreams of becoming an artist, in the drama, is actually a caricature artist who draws people’s faces.

Get ready to sob and cry all over again with more beautiful stories of this series.

My Roommate is a Gumiho – current fave

Every night my hubby and I enjoy our mini date watching Kdramas. And no this is not a paid ad (I wish hehe), you can stream Kdramas in Netflix, iQ, Viki, etc.

We just finished – My Roommate is a Gumiho and it was perfect! ❤ ❤ ❤

Because I’m a sucker for poetry, romantic, almost cheesy, & sentimental lines so I’m sharing the letter of Sir Gumiho. You won’t be needing to playback the last episode to jot down its beautiful words,,, ur wc 🙂

Spoiler warning!

I don’t think I can say this to you in person, so I’m writing a letter hoping it won’t be delivered.

Over the years, I’ve been through so much. Because I’ve lived long, I’ve always been tired. Sometimes mornings are tedious. Until I met you, it was always like that.

You were my only joy. You were the only the reason I waited for the morning. Perhaps I knew it from the beginning that you would change my destiny.

– 오리신

We really enjoyed this drama and at the back of my mind I saw myself in Dam’s, having my husband who’s years older than me and had a lonely past. While I was a college student like Dam kind, honest, caring and cheerful.
