4. “Hot Young Bloods” life lessons
As we grow up, we will realize that fun and enjoyment are big part of our youth. All the confessions, heartbreaks, and rejections are memories of our youth that certainly give an impact on us and on our being. Mentioned below are some life lessons that you will learn upon watching Hot Young Bloods.
Know when to take risks
It all started when they are still young but due to family conflicts, their friendship was challenged.
Young Sook took all the risk, several times to show that she’s into him. However, Joong Gil did not take it seriously. Still, at the end of the day, Young Sook confessed and took the risk knowing that she would face those consequences.
Protect your people
Protecting someone shows that you care for him/her. On the other hand, Young Sook always protects Joong Gil because she loves him even if it’s still one-sided at first.
In reality, each of us must also do what it takes to protect those people who are important to us, so we won’t lose them.
Being ‘mediocre’ is fine (we are all a ‘work in progress’ anyway)
Do not be discouraged if you think that you are not good enough. Remember that everything happens through a process.
Young Sook and Joong Gil did not perform well in school but eventually, they happen to find what makes them happy. We all have our own timings in life so don’t lose the spirit! Keep on going!
Loving someone does not require excuses
If you love someone, show them. Tell them. Life is short and if you just spend it on worrying on things that you didn’t put any efforts in the first place, you’ll never know what will happen.
Young Sook and Joong Gil took all the chance to make it up for each other. In the end, they both attain the happiness that they are longing for.
Take it or leave it. In the end, what matters the most is that, you showed them how you feel even if you are uncertain whether you will get a “yes” or a “no.”
