Obey, regardless ?

Confession, I'm a diehard romantic....reading and  viewing romantic stories!  I finally finished viewing the serial "Family's Honor or Glory of family".  As usual,  I found too many sub-plots, and almost gave up until I saw on Youtube, episodes of romance between the 2  main characters.  Must watch, right?

Anyway, I enjoyed it very much, some very sweet and touching scenes ( erh....minus the sub-plots).  However, I was thinking... how is it In Korea, even in the present day, the children need to get parental approval for marriage. Don't get me wrong, this is a good thing, but most of the serials I've watched make this issue the greatest barrier against marriage. I think most parents in many parts of Asia,  would let their children make their own choices finally.

Secondly, the hero did things according to his father's wishes to the extent of burying his conscience.  Would most of us do this?  Sure, the Bible teaches, " Honor your father and mother that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.' (Exo 20:12). This certainly applies only if there is no breaking of civil law, or blurring of conscience.

Good ending in the story,   in that the hero,  realised how wrong he had been because the lady he loved was such a good person.  So nice.

May all of us be able to influence others for good sometimes, if not all the time. Jia yu !!!
