I was actually watching “Mr. Idol” when I read the news about the photos. Watching the movie was a strange experience because I didn’t know that just watching Ji Hyun Woo moving on my screen would make me grin from ear to ear. All I had to do was see his face and I was mesmerized. I actually don’t consider myself a huge fan of Ji Hyun Woo compared to some other people but obviously, this man does something to me.
It felt like the stars were aligning today for me. I had just finished uploading the English subs for the radio show, reveling in the fact that Yoo In Na said she prefers a direct confession. I mean, this couple! They meet at a radio show in January (I know that it wasn’t the first time they met), start filming a drama together, then do a radio show together when one of the topics happen to be about confessing, they finish the drama, and the guy confesses directly in public! Then I see the photos. Oh goodness, I thought my heart would burst. I was so excited, I could barely type. Seriously, you should have seen my hands.
Of course, the Korean media are demanding official statements from the couple. At this point, I don’t care if we don’t get official statements from either Ji Hyun Woo or Yoo In Na and their respective agencies. I think the pictures are enough proof and to see them happy together satisfies me.
Maybe it’s better that Ji Hyun Woo is going to the military soon? During that time, the media will lay off them and grow disinterested, and the couple can date long distance in peace.
I’m comforted by the fact that if these two started to date after the confession, she knew Ji Hyun Woo was going to the army soon, so she knew what she was getting herself into. Hopefully both of their feelings will only grow during the time apart. I don’t wish this just because they are the InHyun couple, but because people in love and loving each other is simply a wonderful thing.
So I have nothing but best wishes for this couple. I hope everything works out well for them. I won’t let myself think and worry about a future I can’t predict.
I have to post this here because this is bloody brilliant. Pr1ncess61/gcalabia wrote this in the comments for the picture post:
“So happy for the both of them that they’ve found each other. QIHM was their talisman and hopefully, their relationship will blossom into a happily ever after. To quote Hee Jin’s voiceover during the last scene of Episode 16: “A chance encounter that started with a gap in time… that meeting already ended a year ago. Our reunion now is not because of a mysterious talisman written by a monk, but because of a string of memories that belongs only to us both. Now begins our second encounter. Now, I am his lifesaver. The price to pay? All he has to do is stay forever by my side.” I would rewrite this to read, “A chance encounter in 2002, that meeting ended nine years ago. Our reunion now is not because of fate that we were cast together as time-crossed lovers, but rather, because of our deep respect for each other as professional actors where our chemistry was so strong that it blurred the lines between fantasy and reality, and culminated with us creating a string of memories that belong only to us both during this 16-episode journey. Now begins our second encounter. Now we live only for us. And the price to pay? To stay together forever by each other’s side.” Love this couple and only wish them the best!
This is actually one of favorite photos of them from all those wonderful BTS pictures of episode 12…I love how they are turned away from us. It’s like they only have eyes for each and don’t give a damn about whose watching. It’s been my wallpaper actually for some time.
Jomo143 asked me if she wanted any of my letters or translations on the headers she was making for me and I picked a few. Who knew that quote would be so fitting today!
