Before reading this article here about Sufiah and her colorful life and controversial decision, I felt pity and then anger towards her father. I feel that her untoward lifestyle is a direct result of her father's behavior towards her when she was young. Pushing the child so far so early on in childhood can cause damage....this was what I felt. After reading the article and her thoughts about what she's doing earning a living, I feel even worse! It's not the fact that she likes being an escort that horrifies me but it's the fact that she likes being treated as a Princess, being bought gifts and everything superficial related to the 'profession'. Having men shower her with gifts in return for sexual favor is not wrong but it will definitely warp her perception of what a true relationship should be like. Earning a living like that will strip her of knowledge about how to earn money without using her body....or more precisely, a particular part of her body. While it's great that Sufiah claims that she's enjoying every moment of it now but what about later? What happens when she's older and her market rate is down? She said that she was too young for Oxford and I agree with her. A child should never be pushed to her limit and into an environment unsuitable for proper growth. She should have been allowed to grow at her own pace instead of being honned like a horse. Many might disagree saying that a child should be pushed but pushing a child is one thing, forcing her past her own limits is a big NO-NO for me. She might be enjoying herself now but her perception of life, love, building relationships, learning and growing will be different....VERY different....from her peers.
Space Sweeper the Korean Sci-Fi Blockbuster hits Netflix 2021 Image Source: KoreaTimes Let me come clean. The first thing I thought when I saw Song Joong Ki leading the lineup for this movie was ' Is this OK?' ' Hhhmmm.....what about, you know...his personal life', and as a fan of his previous personal work, I had the same doubt I had when he was casted in 'Descendants of the Sun'. Sorry, Joong Ki. 😳 But the concept of a sci-fi movie in the Korean film platter was enticing. The trailer didn't look half bad either. When it comes to space movies, Hollywood has always been the Big Guy. We expect Hollywood to deliver the big guns and explosions while Kdrama land is all mush, love, arm grabs, ice-cold kiss scenes, love triangles, and of late, time traveling. So, sci-fi? Interesting. Honestly, I went in with an empty mind which is not necessarily an open one. Ditched the reviews, writeups, Youtube reactions and everything else and hit the 'watch' butto
