“Sometimes people don’t understand the promises they’re making when they make them,” I said.
Isaac shot me a look. “Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That’s what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway. Don’t you believe in true love?”
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
So Dalhyang’s story begins with a love letter? A promise?
You should know my heart at this moment
My love is the same as yours
I swear, I will never marry another man
If you did not come back, I would keep waiting
Until when I would die alone, or shave to be a nun
I hope you come first in the imperial examination
I long for that very day when we shall meet again
When you arrive at Hanyang
Just say my father’s name, Kang Seokgi
Then someone will tell you where I live
I long for that very day when I shall meet Park Dalhyang on TV too. To watch him fight for his love and life goal.
