Title: 비연 (Drama Ver.)
Artist: 고진영,정주희
구름발치 아라만치 닿을 수 없이 애 닳아서
짧은인생 흐 놀 다 다음생에 기약하오니

꽃보라가 흩날리는 봄이오면 만나려나 (소프라노 – 만나려나)
짧은인행 흐 놀 다 다음생에 온새미로 (아~ 흐놀다 다음생에 온새미로)

만나지려나

The clouds are out of reach.

I am pledged to the next life.

When the spring flowers come and the flowers come (Soprano – see you)

A short trip is a joy to the next life The joy to the next life (Oh ~

I’ll meet you.

I cried a couple of times after listening intently to this theme. Something in the melody was tugging my heart — not knowing much Korean, I felt it was giving me hope against hope. That no matter what, Love will overcome. I had to look for the sound track, and the lyrics to the pansoori. I shed more tears when I realized what the song meant. I thought I’d share it with you all here.

I have always loved his voice… Now there’s something to play to lull me to sleep and dream of Uri Sangyun Oppa ❤

Seo Young, My Daughter

So I just finished watching this epic Lee Bo Young and Lee Sang Yoon drama series — yes all 50 episodes of it in six days. I saved the link way back in December 2015 when I was well so much iinto Park Hye Jin while following ‘Cheese In The Trap.’ I must have watched at least half of the first episode but lost interest when I learned it was going to be 50 episodes. Funny how today felt more sad than happy because I could still use more of Kang Woo Jae and Lee Seo Young on-screen romance, the separation anxiety from this drama is killing me.

Flash Review: My Daughter Seo Young

I really wanted to make my own review of this epic drama series, after all I spent at least six sleepless nights to finish watching all 50 episodes. And I did not just fast-forwarded to Lee Sang Yoon parts — I actually enjoyed this series very much. I thought this gave me a breakthrough of sorts in really understanding Korean family values. I found a new respect for elders, and I so admire the younger generation for giving the elders their due. At the same time, the dilemma of Seo Young not telling the truth about her dad in pursuit of happiness in the embrace of the one she loves, plucked a chord in my heart. I was amazed at the skill the writer(s) had exposing the hearts and intents of each character without sacrificing entertainment value. The same skill the main writer flaunted when she wrote Second-Time Twenty Years Old reuniting her with our Lee Sang Yoon Oppa ❤

Well I chanced upon this review written around the time My Daughter Seo Young originally aired, I thought this blogger’s entry was pretty much what I would have wanted to write, so why reinvent the wheel. Read on…

The Fangirl Verdict

Y’know, there was a time when I literally wouldn’t have touched this show with a ten-foot pole. Seriously.

Partly, it was because the premise didn’t interest me all that much. Partly, it was also because at 50 episodes, My Daughter Seo Young was a big commitment, and I could think of many much more interesting places to spend those drama hours. Especially since I wasn’t all that interested in the premise. Mostly, though, it was because I didn’t care too much for Lee Bo Young as an actress (note the use of past tense!), and couldn’t see myself sitting through a long drama where she played the protagonist.

To think that I now have not only finished the entire show (50 whole episodes!), but would recommend it to other drama fans too. Wow, right?

So what made me pick this up again in recent months? Well, I’m gonna hafta say, it’s

Welcome to me — a forty-something first-time blogger! I know I should have started much, much, much earlier. But hey better late than later, hahah! So this is really all about Lee Sang Yoon. Well it is also about how my heart got broken many years ago on the road to Zanzibar. Some dreams are not meant to happen. So much for unrequited love and repaying what the locusts have eaten in Joel 2. Today I’m just gonna be. Me.

선우정아 (Sunwoo Jung A) – City Sunset Lyrics On the Way to the Airport OST Part 4

Genre : OST
Release Date : 2016-10-26
Language : Korean

Sunwoo Jung A – City Sunset English Translation

Hey citizen
My eyes are getting red
I’m rubbing my face because of the dryness
The sun is melting, the heat of a frustrated sigh
It’s setting, just like my smile
I’m not the only one struggling
Everyone has painful tears and sighs
Trying to hide it with a smile
Like that sunset
But still, I will live through today
Because I have so much to protect
I don’t like it when someone else hurts
Because of me
Honestly, today was overwhelming too
I couldn’t even protect my own heart
At the end of my pitiful footsteps
It’s a day I want to lay everything down

Sunwoo Jung A – City Sunset Hangul

Hey citizen
두 눈이 빨개져서는
건조함에 얼굴을 부비네
해가 녹네 답답한
한숨의 열기
지고 마네 내 웃음처럼
나만 힘든 건 아냐
모두 나름의 아픈
눈물 한숨 애써
숨기며 미소 짓지
저 노을처럼
그래 오늘도 살아내야지
지켜낼 것이
나는 참 많으니
나로 인해 또 누군가가
아픈 게 난 싫어 싫은데
사실 오늘 하루도 버거웠지
내 맘조차 지키지 못했는 걸
초라한 발걸음 끝에
다 내려놓고 싶은 날
지고 마네 내 웃음처럼
나만 힘든 건 아냐
모두 나름의 아픈
눈물 한숨 애써
숨기며 미소 짓지
저 노을처럼
그래 오늘도 살아내야지
지켜낼 것이
나는 참 많으니
나로 인해 또 누군가가
아픈 게 난 싫어 싫은데
사실 오늘 하루도 버거웠지
내 맘조차 지키지 못했는 걸
초라한 발걸음 끝에
다 내려놓고 싶은 날
Hey citizen
얼굴을 부비네
다 내려놓고 싶은 날

Fan-made Videos of 이상윤 Lee Sang Yoon

I’ve always been fascinated with self-confessed true-blooded fanatics of Korean popstars or any celebrity for that matter. How they follow them around, voraciously consume all media content — movies, dramas, OSTs, magazines, concerts, and even spend sleepless nights keeping up-to-date with their idols via social media. Never did I think in my wildest dreams that I’ll come near to being one… until I laid eyes on Lee Sang Yoon’s character on ‘On The Way To The Airport’ I was drawn in immediately to his baritone voice and sincere eyes, not to mention, those killer twin-dimples. Aiyah! The rest is history as the adage says. Looked him up, and started watching all his dramas starting with ‘Angel Eyes,’ then ‘Liar Games,’ then by the time OTWTTA was broadcasting its final episode, I was also done watchng ‘Jung Yi: Goddess of Fire’ — all 32 episodes, Running Man Episode where he guested with Ko Hye Sung and the cast of ‘Angel Eyes,’ and his guesting on’Happy Together.’ What’s next was taking a peep at his movie ‘Insane,’ but since I couldn’t get a version with a good Eng Sub, I ended up fast-forwarding on some of the scenes. It was a little too intense for my taste, I guess. Then, I started to watch him on ‘Second-time Twenty Year Old’ (Twenty Again) with Choi Ji Woo. Really loved it so to express myself, while watching it, I made this video:

A day after, I came across another fan-made video using the same song from the ‘Second-time Twenty Year Old’ OST and boy was I so jealous. This video was so professionally done by someone who shares my heart for Sang Yoon Oppa:
