#dailynari this is how nari dresses when she's not wearing her scrubs 
infp the healer 
idealistic, flexible, hardworking, reliable

sensitive, private, self-conscious, always on the edge
the good  a live-and-let-live attitude is one of the strengths of hong nari. she knows what she wants and she goes all in. she has no interest in having power over others, and doesn't care much for domineering. that's why in terms of conflict, she uses a democratic approach where she works hard to ensure that every voice and perspective is heard and solves the problem. she may be introverted but she is always the first one to lend a helping hand where it's needed. knowing that what she is doing is meaningful and helpful to other gives her the strength and the sense of pursose. a lot of people rely on her because she emits a strong vibe that you can rely on her and everything will be okay.
and the bad  hong nari is private, reserved, and self-conscious. this characteristics makes her notoriously difficult to get to know for some people. if you want to get to know her you have to initiate everything because she will never do it. she is also sensitive, which she denies. but she take things personally, from criticisms to challenges which resulted to her inability to relax and her tendency to be always on the edge. she focuses too much on other people's expectation to her.

kang jaesung, korean history education. hong nari, medicine. who would've thought thursdays will be there favorite day. that the thursday the following week of their first meeting. he came back. with an awkward smile and familiar gaze. and hong nari was actually waiting for him. the next thing we knew, names were exchanged. majors, phone numbers. more gazes and smiles. july 2009. sophomore year. he asked her out. she said yes. eventhough she knew that he will graduate soon and the time that they know each other was still short. who cares. they feel complete, like a puzzle. with her he can show vulnerable self. nari can let her guard down. they understand each other. if home is a person, his is her and her is his. 

i'll enlist in the army after graduation. and he did. two years of minimal connection. quick moments. 5 minute phone calls. january 2012. senior year. it was nari's turn to graduate. pre-med is over. hello korea university school of medicine. 3 years may have pass. but they are still together. growing. moving towards their dreams. nari continued her studies. jaesung started teaching. as they continue to move in the direction of their own lives. they started drifting apart. september 2015. hey, want to go out this weekend? sent 19:45. seen 23:51. from weekend dates to last minute cancellations. 2 hour phone calls became seened text messages. until. nari, jaesung got into a car accident. her world studdenly stops. the love of her life, might be gone for life. she went to the hospital. she saw him. barely alive. but still breathing. oppa i'm here, wake up. after almost 3 days of comatose, he woke up. let's get married after your med school. was his first words. with ugly tears, she said yes. let's be together forever. she said in between sobs.
