Epik High’s Tablo recently gave a lecture at the “Youth Arena” cultural festival, where he shared his thoughts on the love and dreams of youth.
Tablo talked about the similarities of love and dreams, saying, “We still use the word ‘love’ when describing an unfulfilled love, but why do we call an unfulfilled dream a failure? I think both are things we can do with our hearts. There are times when I discover something that makes my heart beat faster, and instead of thinking with my head, I feel a confirmation in my heart that makes me think ‘This is my dream. This is what I should dedicate my life to.'”
He continued to discuss his views, saying, “Interestingly enough, love has little to do with results. Even after experiencing a painful love, we tend to see the good times when we look back. I think it’s centered around a process. On the other hand, we tend to see dreams through a results-oriented lens. When we experience failure while pursuing a dream, we don’t think about the process of our efforts.
“I hope everyone finds their dreams the way they find love. If your dreams don’t go as expected, don’t blame yourself for the result. Treat it like love.”
