Letters of Goodbye: To “Queen In Hyun’s Man”


Dear “Queen In Hyun’s Man,”

This letter is written to you, and at the same time, to me.

In several years, I may forget that I had ever written this letter…

Or the blog in which this letter exists might disappear.

This letter is written for either me or you, whoever may be living holding on to memories.

When I first came into possession of you, I wanted to know the cause and effect.

At first, I thought it was to realize my hopeless dream of finding the perfect drama.

Then I thought, it was to help me start a recapping project.

Finally I thought, it was to live my life in the warm glow of your memories.

But now I have belatedly realized the true effect.

If the cause was short entertainment, then the effect was the loss of everything.

My vision, my health, my tissue box…my sleep…and also you.

In order to be entertained, I had to give up an equivalent price. This is a foregone conclusion.

To think that I could keep even my sanity was foolish.

How much more must I lose in order to repay the price?

Not being able to see you anymore… I have realized even that is a luxury.

Sanity. My sanity.

Losing it is the final price I must pay.

I do not know what will happen now.

Will I just forget you, lost in the deep abyss of my mind, or will I live on, forever in agony?

If I have a final wish…it is to remember you.

In a world full of so many bad dramas, to not have even you as the fallback would be hell.

And you….

Even if you should happen to read this letter in the future, I hope you won’t know who it is for.

Otherwise, it means you have some kind of consciousness and that is just scary.

Love, Joonni

  2. Dear Jooni,

    When I was reading this, I began to think how this was EXACTLY what I was feeling. T.T QIHM took over so much of my life…especially when I went through 150 pages of soompi in two days.

    “If the cause was short entertainment, then the effect was the loss of everything.

    My vision, my health, my tissue box…my sleep…and also you.”

    And then the ending made me crack up so much. Thank you for an awesome letter!

    Now a total lover of your blog as well,

    Hi Joonni, I came to say good bye to all my friends here, and saw your letter. Good byes are hard. To be able to express ones feelings in words is truly difficult. You always seem to find the right things to say and do at the right time.

    As I read through your letter, I feel the heart-hole grow bigger. I am saying good bye not just to a drama, but to a whole world full of exciting events and smart, funny and like minded friends.

    When you truly love some (one or thing), parting brings grief. It is a credit to the drama that in just 6-8 weeks we grieve for it like it was a person rather than a product. We honour it with our grief. In a few years, we may forget to remember this drama, but we will always have it in our hearts and it will jump out when we least expect it. Isn’t that the way love is?

    Even if the blog disappears, I am downloading it and taking a print out. This letter shall survive.

    Dear Joonni, Youre amazing!
    Time passes by, we still live in our own real life. But this drama is one part of our souls. So sad to say goodbye but we should do it to get out of the haunting of QIHM 😀

    Thank you again, Joonni.

    I’ve already said my goobyes to this drama, which I will remember fondly to all eternity. I know that when I look back at the weeks I spent with these characters, in this world that they created for us and also with the multitude of other fans of QIHM, it’ll be with a warm glow of contnentment.

    Thanks for traveling this road with us! 🙂

      Hee, I’m guessing you were digging through my old posts after coming to this site for “Faith”?
      Absolute madness and obsession for this drama was my inspiration. 😀
