The tragic love affair of Prince Jin Seong and Shin Chae Gyung brings the viewers to the sweetest highs and despondent lows as the story treads in a web of doubts, betrayals and love.  The love couple who is forced to love each other from afar accepts that true love is kept in their hearts with the best memories they shared, even if they cannot have future moments together.

Sacrifices are inevitable in relationships. Instead of pointing out what you have done for someone, recognize that it is part of what you signed up for when you made that love promise.

The conflict of the love couple’s parents’ deaths warrants a valid breakup reason for Bong Hee and Ji Wook.  But thanks to their rationally trained minds, they do not waste time, dwelling on unreasonable predicaments that they did not have control over with in the first place.  In the end, they follow their hearts to be in each other’s arms.

Don’t let your emotions cloud your judgment when doubtful issues arise in your relationship.  Succumbing to jealousy is one of the usual suspects for failed relationship. It does not hurt to express yourself when you are feeling suspicious.

But they come to terms just how they are strong in taking the adversaries together. They are also happier in sharing happiness when they are both beside each other.

In good and bad times, stay beside your man or woman.

Because This Is My First Life

The emotionally perceptive story of  Because This Is My First Life gives pep talks on how to burst happiness into our faces by living and loving to the fullest. Ji Ho and Se Hee nullify their initial room rental contract to create a marriage powered by love. They overcome inhibitions by succumbing to that one reason why they want to be with each other. They let go of rationalizing why it might not work out.

Engaging in a relationship entails doing things together and taking in consideration your partner’s idea before making any decision. That causes a craving to either one of you to be emancipated in a world where you can be alone. When that happens, you make the other person overthink about why you are opting to keep everything by yourself. Make sure that when you want to be alone in a room, you leave the door slightly opened – in case you can’t bear with your pain anymore.


Indeed, we have learned a lot of life and love lessons from 2017 Korean Drama couples. Let’s look forward to another amazing K-Drama year this coming 2018!
