There are tragedies that should not be mentioned again. All media today starts to talk about Sewol again, and I am crying reading these in the morning.
It just hurts.
September, oppa, is always a time worth remembering. The sweet and sour September, how can I ever forget every September of my life, especially when you are always there.
4 years ago, a girl got to know you. She began with a broken heart, then later received a healed heart. I couldn’t deny you stand behind some very important decisions of mine, probably one of the most important ones in my life up to now. So is the one in September 4 years ago. If meeting you is not my destiny, I’m fine thinking that God just dropped you to my life unintentionally. He has unintentionally done something good, real good! The time I know you – the past 4 years – has been so life changing; and I did not regret any minute spent for you and my Airen buddies.
4 years is not a long period of time, but long enough to nurture an unbeatable position in my heart. Sometimes I thought I was over you; but then I realized I am just not in favor of the new you. Maybe because every fan is selfish in their own ways. When you got more and more popular, part of me was happy, but part of me was wanting the old shy cute you back. To be back to the time when you seemed to belong only to a few, not the masses.
Is it strange if I am thinking of buying a ticket to your concert and coming all over to Korea again? Well, sounds strange to me indeed. But I think I really miss you, oppa. Miss you so much that the above idea suddenly seems not so strange anymore.
Seunggi oppa, today is your 27th birthday and I didn’t do any celebration nor join any party with Airens.
You can say that love fades away, that I have let the memories of you and Airens swept away among busy days.
But I’m happy that I’m moving on, oppa. I was so afraid of the time when you were the driving force behind every of my steps. I remembered choosing that graduation thesis topic because of you, trying to go to Korea because of you, planning to learn Korean because of you, saving money because of you. I had the feeling that I was losing the control over my own damn life. And sometimes, I knew I’m not moving forward at all, I was trying to turn my back to the reality of life. When I was having no particular goal for my future, you were the one I hang on for reasons.
But I know what I will regret the most if someday I happen to leave this fandom, it’s the warm love that Airens all around the world give me. I am loved, encouraged and cherished by so many cyber-come-true friends like never before. Some of them I had chance to meet, some of them not yet, maybe never. But that doesn’t change the fact that we shared a connection that overcomes the distance of continents. To me, very often, the line between Airen friends and real friends blurred. We can talk about life, study, work, love, depression etc. We exchanged private messages and secret emails when we run out of people to lend us one ear. We stand together to support one person and have the pleasure of spreading the love and multiplying the support.
And I’m sure you are proud of having wonderful fans like my wonderful Airen buddies, who stand their ground to protect what they love, not forgeting to respect other people and trying not to invade others’ territory.
On your 27th birthday, more than anything else, I wish you a happy life when you can smile your smile and get what you deserve to have.
Still lot of love from your fangirl ❤

This is my post in Haartism, my other blog. This post is both personal and both related to Korea. So I wanna post it in both 😀 Enjoy my current OBsessions (OB=Ojakgyo Brothers)
Ajussi! Secret becomes secret because no one sincerely listens to it. So I don’t want to keep anything in secret from you. I want to tell you everything, I can do that, right? I’ll really say it out… I really like you, ajussi. Sometimes I feel afraid and tremble, but I’m unable to stop it – Jaeun (OB)
So here I am, writing about a Korea film for the first time, possibly a drama/movie for the first time. There were times in the past that a drama/movie struck me so badly that I wanted to write down my emotions, but it was never strong enough, or just the chance didn’t come.
I’m telling you about Ojakgyo Brother, shortly called OB by the fans, a Korean family drama that has typical components of a drama of the same kind. A family with lot of members, parents and children, grandparents and…

January 13th 2011
A cold, windy normal day in Hanoi; but I guess Airens all over the world all had a huge awareness of how big this big is!
13/1/11, Seunggi received the award for his Hallyu-spreading contribution in drama section by the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism. That’s so fun because last year, after digging all Internet up or my graduation thesis, I added the news of Song Seung Hyun and SNSD getting this award to show Korea government’s efforts in using culture as a tool to promote the country. And now this year, it’s Seunggi who got the award. Even though my thesis was low-marked in a very unfair way I think, I’m still happy with all the close relationship with my favorite person and country.
So the day was big, but Haart was still desperate as usual; until the day’s morning, she hadn’t figured out a plan yet . After reading Ann’s post at LSGfan, she had quite a plan of being a good employee during the day. And instead of buying a birthday cake and blow the candles herself (which sounds very desperate), Haart had come up with another plan for the evening: going to Korean restaurant with her sister/friends and joining the trending party on Twitter later!
But the plan failed in the first stage! Haart failed to be a good employee who work diligently all 8 hours without peaking at Facebook or Twitter or any other fansite. She said “s**t” for several times. She failed due to a number of reasons which she found very stupid. But she knew work sucked and she had really eaten like a elephant for dinner to make up for it.
Anyway, the “party” on Twitter in the evening was fun; even though Airens couldn’t make it be worldwide trend, that’s not important. #happy25seunggi had been all over the timeline and Haart was happy to see all her cyber buddies.
So the day had ended like that. Another bday passed away. Seunggi oppa, I know people wished you thousands of good things; I wished all the same, especially a good health. And more importantly, wish you lead your life happily and enthusiastically; don’t ever have to wonder “what am I doing”, “what am I here for”, “where will it lead to”, “what the hell is this life”, “why am I so lonely”, “where is everybody”, “who should I believe in”,… These are stupid and meaningless questions which I wish will never ever stay in your mind. Stress will be our mutual rival and we would fight to chase it away!
Thank you for reading my nonsense words until now! Good night and see you somewhere some time in this world!
