Siblings, like so many things in our world, can be a source of great strife and pain, but they can also be a rich source of endless love and support. We’ve seen this demonstrated time and time again in our personal lives, in the lives of our beloved K-drama characters, and most recently in the lives of the newest little munchkins in The Return of Superman.
Week after week, Lee Da Eul unashamedly displays his love and affection for his older sister, Lee So Eul, by shadowing her every move. Talk about imitation being the sincerest form of flattery! If you haven’t seen these two in action, you absolutely must. They are sweetness and love all bottled up in pint-size munchkin bodies! *squees from cuteness overload*
Recently, I received an email from one of my silent Twinkles–we’ve long accepted the fact that many of you are silent readers; yes, I’m talking about most of you reading this right now LOL–and her email made me think a great deal about sibling love and just how beautiful a thing it is.
As many of you know, I’ve been a bit bogged down with Real Life matters these days and haven’t been able to have as much fun romping around in Kdramaland as I used to in the past. So you can imagine my surprise and delight when a silent Twinkle with whom I’ve never exchanged pleasantries before suddenly contacted me with a question of whether I had any tips to promote blogs. Why, you ask? Our little Twinkle “just wanted to help [her] sister succeed.”
It’s not often that a young Twinkle contacts me because she–I’m assuming LastJuniorStanding is a female Twinkle–wants to help a sibling and the sibling’s new blogging efforts.
Needless to say, the teacher in me was moved by her email, and during one of my grading breaks, I took a look at the sibling’s blog…and was thoroughly charmed by it.
Do you all remember one of my Friday Fun selections from a while back featuring Super Junior M‘s “Swing”? (here) Well, the sibling did something quite creative and fun with the music video on her website. 🙂 So thanks to the assertive efforts of a younger sibling who just wanted the best for her older sibling, one very tired Snoopy’s Twinkie–that would be me–was entertained with a fun blog post this past week in the midst of all of her grading. 🙂
As someone who delights in encouraging young people’s assertiveness and initiative, I wanted to do something to acknowledge one of our young Twinkles’ love for her sibling and desire to help her sister’s blog be “a success.” I hope that you’ll join me in welcoming MidnightRamenAttack to the Kdramaland blogosphere! And can I just say that she’s already established quite a written voice for herself along with a fabulous banner! Don’t believe me? Just read her creative recap of “Swing.” (here) 😉
And on this note, I wish you all a love-filled weekend. Sibling love is such a beautiful thing. Hmmm…this reminds me that I should do something nice for my sisters. 😉 Good night, Twinkles~!
