You've Got Jung
Updated: Sep 7
I haven’t really given much interest in the movie To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before that first came out 2 years ago. But when Netflix notified me of its sequel To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You a few weeks back, I became keen, curious on what the story was all about. I’m not ashamed but thank God for Netflix. It has become a bit of a necessity for someone who’s been out of work for over a year now. Yes, that’s me. The movie surprised me though. I didn’t really expect it to be interesting and funny. But I became enthralled by it and its sequel. No, I’m not going to talk about the plot or the summary. I got interested in one Korean word that Lara Jean, the main character narrated in the movie. Well, yes, I can quite relate to Lara Jean’s personality. I think we are both an idealist, trying to imagine finding love based on the book that we read, although I haven’t tried writing a love letter to any of my crushes when I was in high school. But no, I haven’t experienced being fought over by two guys. Some girls just have all the luck. I don’t have that. According to the movie as narrated by Lara Jean, “Jung is the connection between two people that can’t be severed. Even when love turns to hate, you will always have tenderness in your heart for them. A part of you will always be tied to that person.” I’ve been thinking of whom I have jung with. Some people from the past sometimes keep in touch. An old flame pops up and chats occasionally. I’ve always been one courteous soul. I always feel that it’s rude to just ignore people who I think are also very civil to me. As long as they are not being offensive and insolent, I always find time to reply. So, I narrowed my list into three people who have been a crucial part of my life to qualify as having it with. The College Friend: I have a friend whom I was once very close to. But since she got married, things haven’t been the same between us anymore. I feel sad that I can’t even message her. Her spouse disapproves of it. Rather than creating a rift between them, she chose to give me up. And well, what can I do? As the saying goes, when you love someone you have to set them free. So, I cut ties with her. I guess it’s the best thing to do. The Botched Romance: Here comes a friend who once declared his love for me. But I guess we’re not meant to be. When my boyfriend and I broke up, he just started dating a girl who later became his wife. I felt happy for him. At last, he finally found his forever love. The Longest Love Affair: And then there’s this person who is an old flame whom I’ve been with for many, many years. I have mentioned about this someone in my past two blogs. I have hurt the relationship and we haven’t moved on from it, so I decided to finally let go. Who is it going to be? I know the answer even before I am writing this blog. “I know things are never going to be the same with us anymore, but I still wish you the best of everything. I’m just a chat or a call away. You will always have a special place in my heart.” So, have you ever thought of whom you have jung with? I do believe we all have one. You just have to determine who it is. If you know the answer among the three, kindly drop me a personal message. The first one who gets the answer correctly will get something from me.
