I hate the preview!!!
Eng subs based on Chin translation by doolyshinhwa @ weibo
I’ve been arranging my personal schedule to accommodate time for the ‘absolutely totally unbelievably Shin-biased Heartstrings recaps’, so that they were out within 24 hours of each episode’s airing. (Actually ep 1 and 2 were out late.) I’m happy that some of you tell me you like them. I did that with the little hope that I could be making Yonghwa’s drama a little more lovable (I can’t stand people say Lee Shin isn’t lovely or Yonghwa’s acting sucks.) Above all, I did everything for myself. I just want to record my emotional journey anticipating the drama, getting hyped-up whenever a teaser video or teaser pic is released, grinning, crying, feeling great or being depressed for all sorts of teeny tiny things about the Yonghwa drama … But I won’t be able to make the recaps of ep 14 and 15 soon enough, not that I don’t want to do them anymore. I’ll still do them. It’s just because of my personal schedule. Tell you this because I don’t want you to have misunderstandings.
I think my recaps have become sort of not that palatable lately. Because I didn’t see the dooly couple’s relationship as the majority of Heartstrings fans see it? Or the recaps have never been good; I’m being delusional … I must say the drama doesn’t turn out to be what I expected. I was so happy to hear that the director (Pyo) tailor-made the script for Yonghwa after seeing him at the audition. (Where’s he now?) Despite everything that happened or will happen, Heartstrings is still a Yonghwa drama to me. I’m thankful that it exists; I will treasure it so much. I still have the little hope that the remaining episodes can give more justice to the Shin character, but I’ll be fine if they don’t. Most important, Yonghwa keeps saying he loves doing the drama. I totally need to remind myself not to worry about him too much. Don’t know about you, I think NAN is the least useful variety show he’s been doing. But this boy has a way to enjoy his work no matter what. Or we fans can never understand things fully (Who are we actually to demand to know?). A DC fan told a little story at one of the later NAN recordings. (Many thanks to littlemo莫 @ weibo who usually translates such tidbits for fans around.) The stylist needed to fix Yongyong’s makeup, he ran around the set shouting, “Catch me if you can!” 🙂
Yonghwa will be busy as Yonghwa of CNBLUE soon. I’m fond of all four CNBLUE boys but the uniqueness and special personhood of Yonghwa calls out a unique response from me.
Sorry for explaining myself too much. I sound as if there are people around who care to understand me.
PS Your leaving comments, long or short, agreeing or disagreeing with me is a big bonus all this time. Thank you.
PPS Sorry for saying irrelevant things about the preview. It’s just my style. Or it’s just our style? If some people still feel like talking.
