Thoughts provoked by Korean drama series

I've finally finished watching the Korean drama [Goblin]... On a rainy night... Coincidentally... The last few episodes also had a lot of raining (and crying) scenes... So there's this extra gloominess to the already gloomy weather... ToT

Thinking back... [G] was not the only Korean drama that I've finished watching during the past few days... I've also finished watching [Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo]... The tears that I've shed for these two dramas ah... Wa... I tell you... It's probably enough to fill A FEW 1.5L bottles...

[W] and [G] belonged to different genres of dramas... [W] focused on family ties and friendships and other interpersonal relationships while [G] focused on life and death matters... This is probably why I felt very strong emotions while watching these drama series... While I understand that life and death are part of our life cycles... It can be so much more difficult to deal with it when it really happens to people close to you... In [G]... The Goblin had to remember one after another passing of people close to him because he is immortal... Whereas in real life... We also had to remember the passing of our friends and relatives as long as we are alive... We cannot stop it... Because that's "meddling" with the order of life and death... We can only experience it... Keep it in our hearts... And move on with our lives... As quoted from [G]... We have to live life to the fullest... Cry sometimes... But laugh more... This is to repay the love that you have received...

My goodness... Even while typing the quote... My eyes get teary...

Then I thought of something... If reincarnation exists... Depending on your religion of course... But if it exists... How do people choose whether or not to erase their memories? Or is it not a choice at all? I would very much like to opt for my memories to be retained... If possible... Just to experience how it feels like... But then again... What if I managed to retain my memories but I'm being reborn as an animal? Woah... Cannot imagine...

Okok... I think that's all I want to think about tonight... I'll have too many questions if I continue...
