Ha Ni’s love letter for Seung Jo

if you're a fan of Itazura na Kiss, you must know that Korea has now its own adaptation.

meet Oh Ha Ni (Aihara Kotoko's Korean name) and Baek Seung Jo (Irie Naoki's equivalent)...



but we will deal with the whole of Playful Kiss as days go by...

for now, let me present to you the love letter Ha Ni gave to Seung Jo which the male lead (Seung Jo) corrected, thus having it a grade of D-... funny right? :))))))

here's the original text... of course, it's in korean :))
승조
이름을 써놓고 한참을 보았어요
사실 난, 당신을 승조라고 부르지 않아요
난 당신을, 숲의 정령이라고 불러요
왜냐고 묻지 않는다면 얼마나 좋을까요..
그건 당신도 고1 여름, 그날을 기억한다는 얘기잖아요
그날 이후, 나는 며칠이나 아팠어요.
아주 홍역을 치렀죠
그래요, 알아요 그건 꿈이었죠
근데 가끔은 그날이 진짜고, 지금은 꿈인것 같아요
친구들은 혹시 내가 내마음에 속고 있는 건 아니냐고 해요.
어떻게 꿈에서 잠깐 본 마음이 3년을 갈수 있냐구요.
하지만 난 알아요
이건 아주 분명해요
당신을 볼 때마다, 너무나 설레이는 걸요.
심장이…………
내 하루는 온통 당신거에요….
……………내가 어떤가요
………….눈에 밟힌 적 있었나요
…..한번쯤은 나 때문에……
……제발, 내 마음을…………

and now, the translated letter....
Seung Jo,
After writing your name, I stared at it for a long time.
To be honest, I don’t call you as Seung-jo
I call you as “The Spirit of the Forest”.
If you don’t ask me why, wouldn’t it be so nice..
When we were in our high school 1st year, that summer, you made a speech which I still remember.
Since that day, I had been in pain for a few days.
It was a very tough period of time for me.
Yeah that’s right, I know, it was like a dream.
But that day seemed so real at times, and now it’s like a dream.
Even my friends sometimes doubt about this delusion contained in my heart.
How in the world did my heart which only saw that split second in a dream last for 3 years.
However, I know,
This is very clear
The moment I saw you, the fact that I was so very excited.
My heart……………..
My day is entirely about you….
……….How about me
…………Was there even once I keep flashing past your thoughts……
……For at least once, because of me……
……Please, for my heart……………

antaray no? but i love it...

but still, i prefer the taiwanese version of the love letter... simple yet more emotional... hehe...

another but, i will continue supporting the korean version 'coz of my admiration for Kaoru Tada-sama... :)

♥ ~a secret makes a woman, woman.~ ♥

marriage is imp't. so don't take it lightly.

just wanna share something about marriage. i don't know if i have shared this one in my previous posts. but nothing will be lost if i repost it, right?

and btw, i'm not married or in any relationship. it's just great to share these thoughts to all.

enjoy reading! :)




When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes.

She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why?

I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn't talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn't love her anymore. I just pitied her!

With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company.

She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now.

The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn't have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Jane.

When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again.

In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn't want anything from me, but needed a month's notice before the divorce. She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month's time and she didn't want to disrupt him with our broken marriage.

This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day.

She requested that every day for the month's duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request.

I told Jane about my wife's divorce conditions. . She laughed loudly and thought it was 
absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully.

My wife and I hadn't had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mommy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don't tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outside the door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office.

On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn't looked at this woman carefully for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her.

On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me.

On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn't tell Jane about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger.

She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily.

Suddenly it hit me... she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head.

Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it's time to carry mom out. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms, walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day.

But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn't noticed that our life lacked intimacy.

I drove to office.... jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind...I walked upstairs. Jane opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Jane, I do not want the divorce anymore.

She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Jane, I said, I won't divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn't value the details of our lives, not because we didn't love each other anymore. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart.

Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away.

At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and wrote, I'll carry you out every morning until death do us apart.

That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed - dead. My wife had been fighting CANCER for months and I was so busy with Jane to even notice. She knew that she would die soon and she wanted to save me from the whatever negative reaction from our son, in case we push thru with the divorce.-- At least, in the eyes of our son--- I'm a loving husband....

The small details of your lives are what really matter in a relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money in the bank. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves. So find time to be your spouse's friend and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. Do have a real happy marriage!

If you don't share this, nothing will happen to you.

If you do, you just might save a marriage. Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

A CHRIST-CENTERED MARRIAGE IS A MARRIAGE THAT IS SURE TO LAST A LIFETIME.

So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate. Matthew 19:6


marriage is an important aspect in one's life. don't take it lightly. love your partners and take care of them. for satisfaction will be achieved if both of you are happy. :)

i'm damn frustrated...

...and i don't know why...

basta one thing's sure... I'M SAD AND FRUSTRATED...

i so hate this feeling. it seems i'm so useless and powerless and the world's responsibilities that were on my shoulders tripled as seconds pass.

i don't know how or when or where this frustration started. maybe i just opened a pandora box of emotions.

being this frustrated and sad makes me really really unproductive.

i have tons of schoolworks waiting for me but here i am, in front of the laptop, releasing this negative feeling.

but the feeling won't go away... not that easily...

oh God please help me. the most-dreaded weeks in mapua is fast approaching and i can't not be active, attentive, and participative.

i really don't want this kind of feeling.

please God, i beg of you. help me cure this ailment of mine. :(

[Reviews] Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge JDorama

Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge | Watch Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge Japanese Drama Online

honestly, this live drama is one of the best ending i had so far...

not too cliffhanging though you want to have more of it...

super sweet ending...

though the story took off from the original manga plot and anime (i'm a fan you know ^^), it stood alone; having its own version is great, without removing the important factors of SunakoxKyohei tugs-of-love-and war team-up. ;D

though it added some characters (like Takeru and Shinichi, plus the 2 gfs of Noi, and etc.), had some of the stories from the manga mix up with other stories on it, still it was great.

not to mention the awesome bodies of Kazuya and Hiroki, oozing with sex appeal and hotness... yum! ;p :))

but i must mention that i drool over Hiroki rather than Kazuya... i'm impressed with his acting as Oda Takenaga. he really portrayed the part i imagined for Takenaga. :>

but still, everyone's great. though at first i was not that convinced with Kazuya's portrayal of Kyohei, the oh-so-hot-and-yummy character of The Wallflower... sorry, i'm still a girl, you know. :P :'>

and also the one who portrayed Yuki... he's somewhat dark to portray the cutesy li'l boy. but appearance don't matter, just as Obaa-chan had said. what's important is the one you cannot see... oha oha, there's a moral lesson in The Wallflower ah! :))

btw, for those who don't know, The Wallflower is the English name of the series... though the more appropriate would be Perfect Girl Evolution... though still she's not yet "fully" evolved in the manga... hihihi ;)

oh well, i'll give this drama a 8.5/10... why? I STILL WANT MORE EPISODES! :)) that's why... ;D

if it'll have a season 2 or 3, i'll definitely watch it... and drool over Hiroki-kun's body all over again....... also Kazuya's.... =))))))
