1 that can be used instead of something else
2 different from the usual or traditional way in which something is done
Just as there are two definitions for the word, there are two reasons that this word popped up in my mind.
First, today’s Jungshin’s birthday. Happy birthday to Jungshin!!!
What does this have anything to do with ‘alternative’? Just because Jungshin introduced CNBLUE as an alternative rock band from Korea at the opening of Linkin Park concert the other day.
Second, I’ve thought of another alternative ending for Heartstrings. (I had one alternative ending posted as a comment under the finale’s recap already.)
Three years later.
Kyuwon stayed in London longer than planned. Her company had her study for a music degree in a university. She graduated and has just come back to Korea, for publicity work of her Korean musical album.
Shin’s hand surgery was a success and he recovered fast. A music company discovered him and he’s released two mini-albums. He’s a rising star. A talented guitarist. A singer-songwriter too.
But the two never contacted each other in those three years.
It’s Shin’s second concert. Boys of THE STUPID, as well as his college friends have all come cheering for him. Kyuwon is there too, holding Shin’s father’s old record. Shin doesn’t see her, for she’s sitting quite far away from the stage. It’s the encore. “Because I miss you …” Shin doesn’t expect himself to cry anymore. It’s been a long time. As if to fight the tears away, he looks further among the audience, and through his teary eyes, he sees her. Her face is soaked in tears too …
I don’t think I can think of a perfect ending to it. For I actually want to re-write the drama after episode 7. What I want with this alternative ending is: Shin’s dream isn’t shattered because he loves Kyuwon, and Kyuwon needs to be one who takes the initiative if the two re-unite.
As the topic is ‘alternative’, feel free to offer alternative views. I didn’t mean to post for the sake of posting. But you’re free to comment for the sake of commenting.
