Guardian: The Psychology of Forgiveness

September 2, 2019

One of my favorite Korean dramas ever is Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (or Goblin: The Lonely and Great God). Aside from it being what I thought was a very well-written love story, it is a story about friendship and forgiveness. It also gives us one of the best bromances on television ever.

Imagine for a moment that you are an early career psychiatrist. You are struggling with bills, working hard all day, trying your best to make your practice take off. One night you come across a strange young man who tells you that he is from another realm, that he is the God of Water, that you are his servant, and that you must aid along his quest to find three objects that will help him become Emperor of the Realm of Gods. How would you respond?

(Some big spoilers, but this is not a review of the entire season, FYI ;P!)

Princess Agents, a 58-episode Chinese drama released in 2017, based on a novel by Xiao Xiang Dong Er, is hands down one of my favorite dramas ever. It takes place in a time of civil war, when poor citizens were kidnapped and forced into slavery, and is referred to as the most watched Chinese drama of all time. The story mainly revolves around a young woman named Chu Qiao who has lost a large portion of her memory, and has been forced into slavery in the service of the Yuwen family. While at the Yuwen estate, she witnesses and is dragged into the inner chaos as family members target each other in an effort to raise their own status. Although there is a bit of romance, and a ton of action, Princess Agents is at its core a story of revenge.
