A Break

Hey everyone! Missed me? Hahaha... Just kidding. It's really my fault for not being able to balance my time so I was not able to post something real for the past few weeks. Our teachers are giving us loads of works at the same time these past few days. Sometimes, my classmates and I are wondering if they talked about something like giving us tests on the same days and so on. And we have already started out Programming lessons too. So, far, I'm enjoying it. Do you think I should get Computer Science? (^_^!?

Anyway, I would just like to thanks Cindy for this award on the top. Thanks sis! I really appreciate this.

On the other hand, I've been busy waiting every night to watch a South Korean drama, East of Eden on the television. They already translated it on our language so it would be easy to understand. Nevertheless, I still want to watch the original drama. Ofcourse, it needs to have subtitles so I can understand them (^_^).

Okay, so the plot of the story goes like this:

East of Eden draws on the story of two men, who were born on the same day at the same time at the same hospital, and their crossed destiny and revenge.

At the 1960s, the era of major student protesting activities, Lee Ki Cheol , a front runner of the student protests is thrown into guilt when his lover’s older brother dies instead of him, and he arrives at the coal mining region of Kang Won province.

There, he tries to stop the evil-acts of Shun tae Hwan (Jo Min Ki) of Tae Baek coal station, by organizing a labor union but he is eradicated at the hands of Shin Tae Hwan. Lee Ki Cheol’s oldestson. Lee Dong Cheol (Song Seung Heon) witnessed the event and vows to seek revenge.

Meanwhile, a nurse at Tae Baek hospital, Miae, who suffered violation from Shin Tae Hwan switches Shin’s newborn son with Lee Ki Cheol’s new born son. Thus, Lee Ki Cheol’s son grows up as Shin Tae Hwan’s son Shin Myeong Hoon (Park Hae Jin), while Shin tae Hwan’s son grows up as Lee Ki Cheol’s son Lee Dong Wook (Yeon Jeong Hoon).

Lee Dong Wook is recruited into his older brother Lee Dong Cheol’s revenge plan over their father’s death, and Dong Wook enrolls in law school at the Seoul University and becomes a prosecutor.
Meanwhile, Shin Myeong Hoon is raised as the heir of a conglomerate and Lee Dong Cheol goes over Hongkong to begin a new life as the right hand man of a Korean casino godfather (Yoo Dong Geun).

I think the whole story is really good. I can't wait to know what will happen if the truth about Darren and Frederick will be revealed. Anyway, it's inspiring at the same time. Now I'm really studying hard to pass everything in class. Oh, and yes, they received awards too:
  • 2008 MBC Drama Awards: Grand Prize (Song Seung Hun)
  • 2008 MBC Drama Awards: Female Top Excellence Award (Lee Mi Sook)
  • 2008 MBC Drama Awards: Male Excellence Award (Jo Min Ki)

I bet you should watch it too. Anyway, if you're not into these kind of things, I'm not really forcing you, right! So, I guess, that's all for now.
