Personal Quotes (9)

  • [On his experience on Train to Busan] I thought zombie and action films were a piece of cake, but I struggled.
  • [On his experience on Train to Busan] There were so many times a zombie caught up to me while we were filming. I heard the director yell cut and stood in place, but the zombie actors behind me couldn’t hear it and kept running after me. So there are lots of behind-the-scenes videos of me looking pretty stupid.
  • [On his experience on Train to Busan] I naturally get scared easily. When I was young, I hated going to haunted houses. So filming with zombies for this movie was too scary for me.
  • [ On his acting career] I’ve grown more apprehensive. I have these ambitions that I don’t want to lose sight of. I think might become self critical about the things I try to change about myself as I grow older and more knowledgable, more so than before.
  • [On his experience on Train to Busan] I’ve filmed realistic action films before so I thought they were doable, but fighting with the zombies was extremely complicated.
  • [On his role as a father] It gave me a chance to think about how I would treat my child in the future if I have children. I don’t want to crush the child’s sense of hope, but I also don’t want to lie. It actually made me more afraid of raising a child,
  • I think (social media) is so scary, I think it’s a tool that makes people lonelier. You feel insecurities you don’t need to feel on social media.
  • I prefer old Korean music like Lee Seung Hwan, Lee Moon Se, and Yoo Jae Ha. However, among the current musicians, I think GD [G-Dragon] and IU have really nice sensitivity. They’re really cool. Anyway, after taking a drink, the music I play is from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. I’m really getting old, right?
  • Some day I will marry and become a father, but I should’ve already had 2 kids considering my current age. In fact, my friends are parents of elementary students, but despite my age, I am still very young [mentally]. Just by what I see from others around me, I can tell that getting married, creating a family, and having kids is extremely difficult. I think that’s also why my younger, married friends seem more like brothers to me.

Help, Forgiveness…

A man was asked to paint a boat.

He brought with him paint and brushes and began to paint the boat a bright red, as the owner asked him.

While painting, he noticed that there was a small hole in the hull, and quietly repaired it.

When finished painting, he received his money and left.

The next day, the owner of the boat came to the painter and presented him with a nice cheque, much higher than the payment for painting.

The painter was surprised and said “You’ve already paid me for painting the boat Sir!” 

“But this is not for the paint job. It’s for having repaired the hole in the boat.”

“Ah! But it was such a small service… certainly it’s not worth paying me such a high amount for something so insignificant.”

“My dear friend, you do not understand. Let me tell you what happened.

When I asked you to paint the boat, I forgot to mention about the hole.

When the boat dried, my kids took the boat and went on a fishing trip.

They did not know that there was a hole. I was not at home at that time.

When I returned and noticed they had taken the boat, I was desperate because I remembered that the boat had a hole.

Imagine my relief and joy when I saw them returning from fishing.

Then, I examined the boat and found that you had repaired the hole! You see, now, what you did? You saved the life of my children! I do not have enough money to pay your ‘small’ good deed.”
So, no matter who, when or how. Just continue to help, sustain, wipe tears, listen attentively and carefully repair all the ‘leaks’ you find, because you never know when one is in need of us or when God holds a pleasant surprise for us to be helpful and important to someone.
You may have repaired numerous ‘boat holes’ along the way… of several people without realizing how many lives you’ve saved.

Lelaki Sombong

​Share dari teman…
Seorg lelaki kaya nan sombong berjalan di keramaian pasar. Seorg wanita paruh baya penjual minyak samin, dgn kendi di atas kepala sambil membawa ember ditangan kanan, melintas dihadapannya.
Lelaki itu bertanya : _*”Wahai wanita, dagangan apa yg engkau bawa ?”*_
Yang ditanya menjawab : _*”minyak samin tuan”.*_
_*”Coba aku pingin lihat”*_ lelaki itu berkata dgn nada suara datar.
Susah payah wanita paruh baya itu menaruh ember yg ia bawa lalu berusaha menurunkan kendi dan … 
_*”Tes … Tes”*_ gemetar tangan si wanita membuat kendi berguncang, sedikit minyak samin tumpah, menetes mengenai baju lelaki itu. 
Seketika amarah lelaki itu meledak tanpa belas kasihan ia menghardik wanita malang penjual minyak samin :
_*”Aku tidak terima, kau hrs membayar bajuku yg engkau kotori ini”*_ 
_*”Maaf tuan, saya tidak sengaja, maafkanlah saya”*_ memelas wanita itu bersimpuh menghiba.
_*”Enak saja, tidak bisa! ayo bayar bajuku ini”*_ bertambah tinggi suara amarah lelaki itu. 
Tak berdaya dgn suara lirih wanita malang itu memberanikan diri bertanya :
_*”Memangnya berapa harga baju tuan ini ?”*_
_*”Baju ini harganya 1000 dinar … ayo bayar !!!”*_  
Kaget sekali wanita itu, ia menghiba _*”Dari mana uang sebanyak itu tuan? sy ini wanita miskin”*_
Emosi dan kesombongan lelaki itu memuncak : 

_*”Aaah, saya tidak mau tahu itu. Baju yg kau kotori ini hrs kau bayar”*_ 
Pemandangan menyedihkan ini menyebabkan terhentinya langkah seorg lelaki muda. Ia lalu berdiri disisi wanita malang itu sambil berkata : 

_*”Ini uang 1000 dinar, biar baju tuan yg mulia ini saya bayar”*_ ia mengeluarkan kantung uang dari saku bajunya dan memberikannya pd lelaki jumawa yg lalu menerima dan menghitung uang 1000 dinar dgn mata berbinar. 
Wanita itu berterimakasih ber-kali2 pd lelaki muda dewa penolongnya itu.
Merasa uang yg ia inginkan sdh diperoleh laki2 sombong itu hendak melangkah pergi.
_*”Eeh nanti dulu”*_ hardik lelaki muda itu. 
_*”Ada apa lagi ?”*_ balasnya ketus. 
Dengan tenang lelaki muda itu berkata : _*”Kan sdh saya bayar bajumu itu, sini berikan baju itu padaku, itu baju milikku”*_
Terbelalak mata lelaki sombong itu berkata : _*”Lha jadi saya berjalan di pasar ini telanjang bulat”*_
Ketus lelaki muda menjawab: _*”itu bukan urusan saya, bawa sini saya sdh bayar 1000 dinar, itu baju milik saya”*_ 
Orang2 yg sedari tadi berkerumun dan geram dgn kelakuan si lelaki sombong rame2 berteriak : _*”Ayo buka bajunya”*_ 
_*”Serahkan bajunya, itu bukan milikmu”*_ 
Merasa terpojok dengan suara memelas si sombong menundukkan kepala berkata pd lelaki muda : _*”ambil kembali uangmu ini. Aku tidak jadi menjual bajuku ini”*_
Laki2 muda berkata : _*”Siapa bilang saya mau menjual baju itu? saya tidak ingin menjualnya, sini … serahkan bajuku”*_ 
Pucat pasi wajah si lelaki sombong, ia menghiba : _*”Tolonglah, jual kembali baju ini padaku”*_ 
Setelah memohon berkali2 akhirnya laki2 muda itu berkata : _*”Baiklah, tapi krn baju itu milikku. Aku tidak akan menjualnya kecuali dgn harga 2000 dinar”*_ 
Pahit dirasa ludah yg terpaksa ditelan laki2 sombong itu demi mendengar omongan ini. 
Dengan wajah yg tetap menunduk ia lalu merogoh koceknya 2000 dinar. Menyerahkannya pd lelaki muda dan secepatnya berlalu pergi diiringi riuh rendah suara sorakan orang2 di pasar itu.
Laki2 muda itu lalu mengulurkan uang 2000 dinar itu pd wanita penjual minyak samin yg sedari tadi masih terduduk bersimpuh di dekatnya.
_*”Ibu, ini hadiah dariku untukmu”*_
Saudaraku, ingatlah selalu, _*”Siapa yg merendah, ALLAH akan meninggikannya, siapa yg sombong, ALLAH akan merendah kannya di dunia ini dan juga di akhirat nanti”.*_*


A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning.
The wife said, “You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don’t have to wait as long to get our coffee.”
The husband said, ” You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.”
Wife replies, “No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee.”
Husband replies, “I can’t believe that, show me.”
So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says……….”HEBREWS”

God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.
