When was the last time we turn around and never face our greatest fear? or something that we are scared to stand on? We are not sure once we say “YES” everything will be all right and our heart will be filled with joy. We knew from the first place that it will not be easy and we are not sure what will be happen along the way once we grab it. Our heart say we want it but our fear stand behind us. We are afraid, but we are hoping to hear from our lips to say yes.
And, when we say “NO” our interest to something will fade away. Something that will break our heart for a long time.
That’s why were still in the dream of fantasy every time we close our eyes and once we open it, reality starts all over again. We are long for the happy ending story every single day.
I remember the movie I watched last night. After a long time, I’m finally free to watched a Korean movie. I didn’t watch a movie most of the time because I most prefer reading than watching 3-hours straight. The movie genre is Romantic, Horror/Comedy. It’s a little bit scary, but at the same time I enjoy watching it. Even my tears fall on the last part of the movie.
This is the story of a street magician (Jo-goo) who noticed one of a miserable looking girl during his show and she winds up being the inspiration for his “Horror Magic Show”. The show has been success. To make the story short, the girl work for magician together with the other staffs. Forward to almost a year later, the darkness inside her, something her colleagues sense. As the girl and the magician developing a friendship together, Yuri confesses the long story about her past life. The girl has acquired an “unwanted” ability to see dead ever since she survived a high school automobile accident. Dead people/ghost appear on her daily life. Her best friend who died in an accident follows her everywhere and scaring people around her. That’s why, she don’t have a lot of friends. Every person who became close to her starting to left her because they see unusual thing every time when they are with Yuri.
Yuri is so lonely and wants to be happy. Even how many times she say that she is happy to herself, she always find herself alone and crying. Even though it’s like this, Jo-goo still on her side and never left her. The two of them start to develop feelings to each other. And though Jo-goo is sometimes scared witless himself, he loves Yuri enough to overcome his fear.
I really cried on the last part of the story. The moment Jo-goo confessing his love on the girl and he want to stay with her. He is really scared to be with her, he came to the point that he cannot sleep every night because of the ghost. It is so hard for him. But, he think about Yuri behind of this, that she is alone and screaming with her lonely heart. It makes his heart rips out every time he think of it.
“If I’m like this, thinking about you being alone. It’s better to have a ghost on my back rather than left you being lonely. “
In our current life situation, we will also feel like this. We are portray or we are exactly the same as Jo-goo in the main character of the movie and Yuri is our spellbound and our fear is the ghost on the story. No matter how we want and choose our wants / interest we will never have it if we are not ready to face the fear behind us.
I believe that we should follow the same path that Jo-goo take. No matter how scared he is, he choose the girl she loves and overcome his fear. Because this is what his heart screaming of and in the end he is filled with happiness.
Remember that every time we say “YES”, believe me that every “fear” will follow you wherever you are like a ghost in the movie. You cannot sleep well too because your fear is bothering you. But, as long as you have God and a road map on what your heart really wants, the ghost or fear is just only a part of your journey to make you strong and overcome your fear. And, remember that it will not be as easy as you think but don’t worry believe me, you will smile at the end of your journey and your heart will be filled with joy.
I still believe in Happy Ending.
PS: please watch the Spellbound (2011) movie too! 🙂
