From Kim Ddol Chu to Kim Ju Won
Firstly, let’s forgive the editors for not using Hyun Bin’s handwriting in episode 18’s letter scene. Which made me look closer at the authentic version in episode 17. It gave me some interesting thoughts – it’s not easy to write a letter (here it’s like a suicide note) while you’re crying. And if you look at Hyun Bin’s words, it really looked like a heartfelt letter written with some difficulty. Either that, or … ^^; his natural handwriting is like that (?) ㅋ
Who is Kim Ddol Chu?
He is the man belonging to Ra Im, the name only this woman can think of, and can say. The name he finally acknowledged himself, before giving her everything.
Who is Kim Ju Won?
지금에야 난 우리가 걸린 이 마법이 신의 선물이 아니었을까 생각해.
그러니까 뜻밖의 선물을 받은 사람처럼 행복하게 웃어줘.
마음으로 웃으면 그 웃음소리, 내가 들을께.
난 그쪽이 생각하는 것 보다 훨씬 능력있는 사람이니까.
내 얼굴 이쁘게 면도해주고 나 좋아하는 멋진 옷들도 입혀줘.
그정도면 우리, 함께 있는 걸로 치자.
그정도면 우리 다른 연인들처럼 행복한거라고 치자.
(Hyun Bin as Ra Im, reading the letter)
“From Kim Ddol Chu to Kim Ju Won…”
“The magic that we are going through now, I believe it’s probably a present from the gods.
So, please, with the happiness of a person receiving an unexpected present…”
(Hyun Bin as Ju Won, writing the letter)
… smile for my sake.
If you smile from the bottom of your heart, the sounds of those smiles, will be heard by me.
Because, I’m a person who’s much more capable than what you can ever imagine.
Shave my face beautifully, and wear the well-tailored clothes that I like, for me.
By doing that…
… then it can be regarded that we are together.
By doing that…
then it can be regarded that we are as fortunate as other couples in love.
Brilliant, the production staff (director, writer, editors etc), for using the car as the place where Ra Im reads the letter. For giving us our first glance of Ha Ji Won’s Ra Im post-accident, conscious, here.
For episode 18, the biggest applause to Hyun Bin. Have you ever seen an actor act as 3 different characters (2 genders, nonetheless) in a single episode?
And me suffering from Kim Ddol Chu sickness… I totally believe that Hyun Bin started narrating the letter as Ra Im. >_<
Last but not least…
Ddol Chu yaa, hey man! Love ya churining (tracksuit)! *rofl*
edit: was re-watching episode 8, sighted that ‘handaam handaam‘ …
(Shall use the actors’ names ‘cos it’s just too confusing)
Hyun Bin: Are you really going to the Action School in that?
Ha Ji Won: Of course. That tiger-skin would have been PER-fect. But there’s no size. No size!! -o-
Hyun Bin: Aieee, goodness me… why do you want to look so embarrassing, why? Does this churining look like something that sane people wear?
Hyun Bin: Whoever that Italian expert tailor is, I’m so going to kill and destroy him! Aaack!
