Well-deserved K-Drama with Highest Episode Rating 🙌🏼
Apart from it being well-directed and well-written, I love how intellectual it is-dealing with cryptic philosophy books such as "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" written by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche and even Richard Dawkin's revolutionary evolution idea found on his book "The Selfish Gene".
As I finished it, I remembered this memorable and enlightening quote from the film Dead Poets Society:
"Medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for."
And I couldn't agree more...
