I have been sinfully binge-ing Netflix lately and for the record, today I just completed watching a Japanese drama with the above title. I was definitely hooked as I went through all 12 episodes from my lunch break until I reached home.
What is Million Yen Women all about?
A frustrated writer has arranged his home for 5 mysterious women, who all pay him a million yen as rent. What is the story behind this unusual arrangement? – IMDB
I was interested with the drama was because of the word ‘writer’ on the synopsis. I am sure we all know how it feels to feel frustrated when we could not write anything on the paper or screen in front of us. Plus, I am the type who would be so attracted to comedy, I decided to give this drama a go.
By the end of the last episode, I have come to a conclusion, this is a great and powerful drama! The drama filled with emotions and some can be so intense that it made me restless. I am proud to give this drama a 5 Stars rating.
However, I am not going to review any further about the drama. Simply because Ally’s Thoughts was never meant to be about reviews. It is all about the value or something that I want to talk about inspired by the dramas or movies I have watched.
The point or issue I want to talk about is:
Will you be able to forgive yourself?
In the drama, the main character’s father has murdered his own wife and the person who has an affair with the wife. The father also killed a policeman who was trying to stopped him. The father was sentenced to death for his crime.
To make things worst, the story progressed and Shin, the main character, came to a point where he prefer to be alone. In hope not to lose the things or the person he loved. His life was filled with tragedies and he blamed himself for it. He told himself, things would have changed if he could realized things earlier. It was too late for him and decided to live in seclusion.
This is the part that to me can happen to anyone, the part where we can’t stop blaming ourselves for the things that happened. Personally, I understand how it feels. For someone who did so many things before, we are bound to made one or two mistakes and some of them left us with deep scars. The more we think about it, the more we made things hard for ourselves.
The scars became a big alert warning whenever we want to move on. Basically, we will start to hear, I don’t want to repeat the same mistake, I am too afraid to try because I have failed before, I don’t want to take the chance and so on. We are so afraid to take that leap of faith and we keep on blaming ourselves.
To be extremely honest, sometimes I am trapped in that situation. It is very hard to forgive myself over the things I have done. Be it small or big. If you ask me, how did you managed it? My answer is simple, what else do you have? The only things that I have is time and chances. As long as I am breathing, I was given the chance to atone or correct my mistakes.
What about you? How do you forgive yourself?
Here is the trailer for the drama if you are interested.
I am sorry for horrendous grammatical and spelling errors in this post. I basically came home and binged on the drama. Then, instantly I wrote all the things here with the absent of a straight and sharp brain.
There are actually other perspectives that I want to talk about in the drama. Not today! said my brain.
Until next time!
