I'm sorry for your loss.

Just try to take each day at a time, don't let the past haunt you.

You can make it through the dark times.

I could explain it but where would my fun be if I didn't let you struggle with it for awhile.

Okay...you need background information.

Samsung KHAN is a professional gamer team meaning they play video games for money. This isn't like your small stuff MLG has, it's much more rigorous and way more competitive than that. Samsung is split into two different teams:

A Team: Main team with the stronger players. They play in the major leagues to win.

B Team: Known as "practice partners" and only serve to practice with A team members as well as practice rigorously to become better themselves (to be promoted to A team). The girl in the video is on B Team (and the match being aired is a minor league).

The time schedules for pro gamers in Korea is strict. A MINIMUM of 10 hours of practice time is required by all members (and even more for B team). Normally you will think "oh 10 hours of gaming, no problem" oh are you in for a shock. All you do is play the game to improve. There are no breaks, you don't interact with people, you don't have fun with your neighbor. You are there to get better by pure concentration. And for this long, it really takes a toll on your mental status.

That being said, time to understand the taboo of becoming a professional gamer. Due to the above dedication required to be a professional player, you have to give up college in order to be serious in getting anywhere in this job field. Try telling "I want to drop out to play games" to traditional Asian parents...it's not going to happen. To make the decision to play games worse, at extremely high level plays, your skills will diminish once you hit a certain age. Your hands move slower and your reaction times slowly increase. When it gets to a critical point, you retire from the world of gaming (90% before the age of 30). If you don't have any backup skills, you're in trouble.

Now that has been kind of explained, on to the video. The theme is "The world depresses me".

In the first scene, she is practicing in the KHAN house and is being mocked for not wearing her uniform (showing she isn't all that popular in the practice house). When she is dismissed from practice by the coach, she returns home to her parents who found out she decided to drop out of college to play games. Her father is angry since it took him a lot of effort to see that his daughter had a real fighting chance for a bright future and for her to throw it away. Her mother is more understanding, but lets her father do the talking (not scared, it's an Asian tradition for the father in the family to have more authority in controlling his family correctly...and no, Asians do not view abusive husbands as 'proper control'). The girl yells that her father doesn't understand her and storms out to meet friends to do some dancing in a closed lot.

In the closed lot, she joins her friends and she's happy. Her friends accept her and she really enjoys it. Shortly after that, they are approached by a rival group and demand a battle to see who can stay by dancing and rapping. When it comes to the girl's turn, she fails and gets pushed back and loses the entire battle for her group and they're forced to go home and surrender. She feels really terrible for letting her friends down and feels worthless now. Her mother texts her that she supports her actions and will be waiting for her at her next game match.

At the MBCGame stage, she faces off the ACE for the other team in a battle. She notices that her family came to watch her play the game so she starts to make a small comeback. Ultimately, she isn't able to win the game and concedes defeat. She feels really horrible now since not only did she lose the deciding match for her team, but she embarrassed herself in-front of her parents. She gets taken backstage by her coach and teammates where they try to cheer her up with encouragement saying she played really well and was just unlucky this time. Her parents come in and witness how well her team treats her and her father accepts her decision to play games with a nod. We see her smile at her father.

The ending scene shows that now she knows that she's loved and accepted regardless of what she does, all she has to do is simply keep fighting. Now to explain it using my own feelings and whatnot.

Rather neat little lesson rapped up into a video that makes me feel a little better watching it. I've related to it before and managed to stand back up and keep walking. I've never had many friends before and it does mean a lot when the few that I do have show they care and will pick me up when I fall down even if I bring them down with me. Even knowing that someone is there standing with me and not letting me stand it alone, it still hurts a lot (for me) to fail...especially if it fails my friends, even if I attempt my best effort. To get up and try again is one of the most painful experiences I go through and no matter how many times I do it, I never get used to the pain. Hurts just as much as it did the first time.

To follow your dreams is probably the hardest and most painful things you'll experience in life in this way.
