~ empathy is the act of one person identifying with another person's emotions, feelings, or thoughts.
To me, empathy is one of the warmest and most moving aspects of loving someone. It has personally allowed me to connect with, and be there for, the people I care about and to reach out in love to those around me.
Here are a few of the many drama moments that I feel display the power and beauty of empathy at work.
While You Were Sleeping (Episodes 13-14)
Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo (Episode 15)
I Am Not A Robot (Episode 29)
Having empathy for another person is not always so easy. Sometimes it is quite difficult, indeed, to understand or to even want to understand why someone feels or thinks the way they do. But this fact ~ that it does not always come easily ~ is what makes empathy such a powerful gift to give. And it is why empathy is such an important part of love.
