Kdrama Thoughts

I've been taking a break from Kdramas for the past couple of weeks. I know. Who would have thought that would happen? This time away from Kdramas has led to some thoughts. I say I've spent time away from Kdramas but really. I still think about them more than an average person does. I will share my thoughts now.

Time jumps. One of the most hated Kdrama mechanisms but also one of the most frequently used. What if we experienced time jumps in real life? One minute you're happily getting along with your new boyfriend (think Coffee Prince) and the next you have been apart for a couple of years and are being reunited after growing intellectually and in maturity to become a better person overall and achieve self satisfaction.

On the other hand, what if things were going well in your life but you experienced a time jump and now your life is not what it once was? Will you have to build yourself up again with the help of a reluctant sidekick who will eventually turn into a lover or will you have to go at it alone?  I'm sure once everything starts going smoothly for you there will be another time jump and you will be married to your lover with a kid or one on the way.

Nothing could ever go wrong with a time jump in real life right? It would go exactly the way it does in Kdramas and everything would be peachy in the end. Right? Wait a second. Would you actually remember everything that happened during the time jump if you had one in real life or would it be like waking up in the hospital with amnesia? You remember your life one way but people are telling you it is two years later and all of these changes have happened to you. 

What do you think? Would real life time jumps be the same as Kdrama time jumps? Do you think you would remember everything that happened? Would you like it if you experienced one?
