For how many times do I need to tell people that I am not a Korean and I am not a Korean drama TV series (Korean-novela) actress!! This is not the first time. I always hear these things since Meteor Garden era. And it’s not just at college but at jeepneys, streets and the market as well? O.o
First and foremost, my ethnicity is Chinese. That explains my skin color, so please stop comparing your brown skin with my pale skin. I don’t feel flattered at all. I don’t care if you people wanted a pale skin like mine or whatever but please don’t repeat such stuff to me. It gets irritating whenever you hear it. Also, you people should be contented for whatever you have.
Secondly, in my humble opinion, acting, modeling and the like are just another line of job that deals with entertaining people. That’s why it’s called the “entertainment industry”. Duh. So why take the fuss over actors and actresses? (Or is it just me that thinks this way?) After all, you see them on TV because it’s their job to be on TV. Also, I am way too under qualified to be an actress. I can’t act, I can’t sing, I can’t dance, I can’t do pretty much anything. To make things short, I’m talentless. Even if by some weird chance I’m scouted, I wouldn’t even try working for an industry where you sell your face, body and talents to be seen nationwide. Even your every move is monitored by people from the media and everything else in your life would turn from reality to being superficial.
Thirdly, not all people with the same skin color and china-eyes as me are Korean. Why do people here in this country see Chinese, Japanese and Korean people all automatically as Korean-novela1 actors/actresses anyway? This is not just exaggeration this time. I’m starting to think that watching TV is really bad.
Fourth, what do you care if I dress this way? Is there any law in the Philippine constitution stating I cannot wear things such as these? (Business/office attire: blouse, slocks pants, knee-length boots, and blaser placed over my shoulders – because it’s hot if I wear it on the jeepney. >.<) Also, it is required that I wear stuff like this that’s why I’m wearing them. Do you think I would just randomly wear such clothes on this countryside-like place I’m living? Before commenting on other people, please look at the mirror first. I don’t hate these kind of people though, because in my opinion, such are just the signs of insecurity.
And lastly, if I may request, if you plan on talking behind a person, please murmur them in a lower voice. Just enough to be heard by the one you are talking to and also not loud enough to be heard by that the person you are talking about. Because even if you meant it as a compliment, the person might not take is as one but rather, the opposite. Please be conscious of the people around you too, because not all people are like you. I won’t expect too much from you people though, you are uneducated, ill-mannered street people, after all.
