“Happiness is near…” The ending scene of “You Quiz” drew attention since the disaster broke out
After the Itaewon disaster, the ending scene of tvN’s “You Quiz on the Block” episode 137 is being dug up.
Episode 137, airing earlier this year, was conducted under the theme of “Is there a Gift?”
At the end of the broadcast, the production team did a street interview and asked, “Is there a small but precious moment in your daily life?”
Interviewed by-passers responded, “When I go to a regular store, they greet me first and give me drinks. I feel that I have lived well”, “I feel good when the bus man greets me. I feel like the day will go well”, “When you’re in a relationship?” and “When your family is not sick and peaceful”.
The people experience great happiness in the smallest moments in their everyday life
After conducting interviews with citizens, the production team concluded, “Minute attention at the regular store, warm greetings from neighbors who remember, and a meal with a precious person. If it is touching enough to feel grateful, it is also a gift of life”.
They continued, “If I had a flawless day, it wasn’t that I was free of any worry, it was that I was lucky enough to keep myself away from moments of crisis. Listening to the chatter of the wind and the grass, watching the light the sun gives off after work; my existence in front of countless small lights is so insignificant, but feeling alive today, isn’t it the the supreme gift of everyday life?”
The production team ended with a heart-felt wish, “I wish everyone good dreams on an autumn night, good luck and peace to all who live their lives.”
Due to the timing, the ending of episode 137 is giving many people a sense of ease following the traumatizing event.
They comforted themselves, “I realize how grateful I am and precious ordinary life is.”
