A Life Lesson I Learned From Black Knight (Korean Drama)

February 13, 2018

This drama was still ongoing at the time I started writing this. But it is over now, with a sad ending. Ops, spoiler alert! 

To those who have no ideas about this drama, let me share a bit of its synopsis. The full title is Black Knight: The Man Who Guards Me. I don't remember if the story started with life in Joseon years or current one. But it is about tangled relationships between few people - consist of long lost childhood plus long term grudges and curse. A very interesting drama as it has different timelines that are hundreds of years apart.

Soo Ho, is a successful businessman who has lost his parents. He has arguable childhood when his father died in a fire and he was 'taken care' by Hae Ra's father. Soo Ho then left Korea to live abroad while Hae Ra lives a miserable life since her parents died. On a stressful day, Hae Ra dreams of a coat her parents ordered when she was a child and had not pick it up. Only then, Hae Ra meets Sharon / Seo Rin. 

So what are actually relationships between all of these 3 people?
Who is holding grudges against who?

Watch it yourself. Hahaha. Tak larat nak taip panjang-panjang.
But if you can't tolerate sad ending, don't do it. To be honest, I would prefer another style of sad ending T_T

A thing that keep me watching... is the views of Slovenia.

I am sure there are lot of other life lessons we can learn from the drama. But this is the main point I realised throughout the story. 


There is a character named Park Chulmin. He is actually a father of Haera's friend, Gon. In this drama, if you watch it, Chulmin's greediness started when he fell in love with Cheo Seorin, a lady who has lived for 250 years and she always mentioned to Chulmin to be rich in any means. He is doing everything he can to raise his wealth even by threatening people. 

I once watched a video about things that can threaten our iiman. When the presenter asked the audience about what are those dangerous things to our iiman, many people will answer majority stuffs that are certainly haram, prohibited or forbidden in Islam like drinking alcohol, adultery, murder etc.

There is a hadith about the greatest threat (At-Tirmidhi).

Narrated K’ab bin Malik: Allah’s Messenger said, “Two hungry wolves sent in the midst of a flock of sheep are not more destructive to them than a man’s greed for wealth and fame is to his religion.” (At-Tirmidhi)

Greed for wealth and fame. 

Wealth is important though, even some of Prophet's companions were wealthy and they used their wealth for Islam.

But the greed beyond what is needed and involve unnecessary values are not good. Greedy people can do many things to get what they want - no matter how illegal they are. 


This can be reflected to our life.
Bribe is almost everywhere, in almost every organisation. 

May Allah guide us away from this.
