South Korean skit channels

One of many issues that stood out to me from a recent episode with actor Kim Woobin(opens in a new tab) is that he mentioned, “If you find yourself dwelling day by day life, it’s extremely uncommon to lookup on the sky deliberately.” And that made me suppose “Wow, I have not actually appeared up on the sky fairly often, not even as soon as a day.” One other factor he mentioned that was memorable was that when he made the profession transition from modeling to appearing, he wrote about what he was grateful for day by day, which actually impressed and impressed me. Remembering what you are grateful for is essential.
