There is one thing I learned after getting young…. No matter how old you get, there is always something new to learn. If you think of it as a regret, that is the end of it. But when you think of it as a lesson learned, it brings a new beginning. I will try to learn more from now on, whether it is about work, life, or love. So, I will try to find what I love to do again…. I am going to spend my life without any regrets. – Dae Young
18 Again Synopsis : After nearly twenty years of marriage, Jung Da Jung and Hong Dae Young seem to be well settled in their domestic lives. The proud parents of a pair of eighteen year old twins, the devoted couple have worked hard to build a happy home together. But what seems like an ideal life on the outside is really anything but. Fed up with Dae Young’s incessant nonsense, Da Jung is at her wits’ end. When Dae Young announces that he’s been fired, Da Jung gives up completely. Convinced life would be better without her husband in it, Da Jung wastes no time in filing for divorce.
Shaken by his wife’s decision to leave him and utterly disappointed in where life has taken him, Dae Young takes a hard look at his life. It doesn’t take him long to see all the places where things went wrong, and soon he finds himself regretting absolutely everything about his life. The moment the thoughts of regret enter his head, his body is instantly transformed into that of an eighteen year old, while his thirty-seven year old mind remains intact. Suddenly given the chance to re-do his entire life, Dae Young changes his name to Ko Woo Young and enrolls himself in his children’s’ school. Seeing life from an entirely different perspective, Dae Young soon finds that despite keeping his middle-aged brain, he still has a lot to learn. (Source : MyDramaList)

INSPIRING K-DRAMA QUOTES FROM 18 AGAIN
- Age does not mean anything. You said yourself that you need to apologize if you did wrong. My daughter is as precious to me as yours is to you. I am being very civil right now despite how frustrated my daughter feels. So, just apologize and leave.
- Do not let people who do not know you get to you.
- If you keep it in, the strong will get stronger and the weak will become weaker. When you need to fight, you should.
- No matter how hard life gets, never regret anything that made you smile.
- Here is what Audrey Hepburn once said. “Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably.”
- They say marriage gives you your one and only that is not your blood-related family. If they are your one and only, why cannot you tell them anything? You should talk. Who knows? You might hear something that you have been waiting to hear.
- What is there to fear when we only live once. We have to be bold and do whatever we want to do in life.
