type lover

anonymous asked:

Can you translate "Fate" by Lee Sun Hee and connect it to SoSoo? I feel like it would fit rlly well, but the lyrics I read don't seem to fit grammatically. Could you do that for me? Please? I loved your translation of "Wind" and I really wish you would do "Fate." Thank you so much. You are a wonderful person.

Oh Anon, you’ve caught me on a good day… and with my favorite song!~

There’s the video that made me watch an entire drama :)

So let’s begin with the lyrics. Here are my translations based on what I’ve learned from my uber traditional, grammar nazi family.

“인연” (”Fate”) by Lee Seon Hee:

I promise after this moment has passed,
On the day we can meet again,
I will throw everything away and stand by your side,
As we walk the rest of the way together.

They call it how fate*, there is no denying it.
In my life, a day as beautiful as this,
Could it ever come again?
On the agonizing road of life, you were a gift.
And, so rust cannot tarnish our love,
I will clean and shine it every day.

As if we were drunk, our meeting was short,
But I opened the closet doors and made us a place.
And though our love could not be fulfilled, I have no regrets.
Because there is nothing that lasts forever.

They call it destiny, there is no denying it.
In my life, a day as beautiful as this,
Could it ever come again?
There are so many words I want to say, but you, my dear, will already know them.
Throughout the long road, on the day we can meet,
Don’t ever let go again.

The love I could not have in this life, the fate I could not have,
Wandering throughout the long roads, on the day we can meet again,
Don’t let me go again.


Alright, wipe your tears. Let’s get into it.

A bit of backstory: this song comes from Lee Joon Ki movie The King and the Clown (왕의 남자). The singer is one of Korea’s most famous, revered vocalists: Lee Seon Hee. She is a devout Buddhist.

Again, there are no genders in this song. The “you”s and the “my” are not gendered, so it could be So speaking to Soo or vice versa.

Now, this is definitely a sad song, but it’s one about lovers who have been separated that have hope that they’ll meet again. Hope. That’s what the singer is trying to convey. It’s a constant yearning that aches for the other person and reassures them that one day, they’ll find each other again.

That sounds familiar because So said something along the lines of: “If we are not of the name world, I will find you, my Soo.”

*- The title of the song in Korean is “인연” (een-yeon) which very very roughly translates in English to “fate”. However, the meaning is much more complex because the word in itself has no romantic connotation. Generally, the definition encapsulates how two people’s lives intertwine in their actions together. This could apply to the strangers you pass on the street or even to your spouse.

The song, however, is about a lover trying to find their other half in the next life, promising that they will never let the other person go if they are found. (Returned to quote: “ If we are not of the name world, I will find you, my Soo.”)

See, the PDs of MLSHR created a scene where SoSoo meet in present day and he hands her a handkerchief. Historically, Gwangjong became obsessed with Buddhism towards the end of his life. One aspect of Buddhism is the idea of reincarnation and rebirth.

The song specifically states: “The fate I could not have in this life.” That is the single line that completely and fully links the song to So and Soo. It is about their fate in Goryeo and how their relationship stopped after Soo left Songak.

“The day we can meet again,” isn’t tomorrow or next week- or even next year. “The day we can meet again,” isn’t in this lifetime, but the next one. It’s when the So and Soo can find one another again and love each other completely. It’s when they have nothing standing in their way and nothing impeding the path they will walk together.

Hiccup the Romantic

Hiccup has thought about kissing Astrid first multiple times and he always waited until the moment was “Perfect”. 

So even though Astrid was the one always initiating the kissing before Season 4 of RTTE, Hiccup was FAR from being the shy type of lover. He’s a romantic, and as a romantic he waited until the perfect moment to initiate their first kiss as a couple.

When Astrid was confiding in him about her fear of being permanently blind, Hiccup comforts her by saying that they’ll get through it together. Telling her that he will never abandon her side and that there will always be a “Hiccup and Astrid”. His genuine confession of commitment was practically a declaration of marriage as he leans in to kiss her before they were attacked.

And when Astrid finally gets her sight back at the end of the episode, Hiccup doesn’t hesitate to kiss her during the sunset after she comments that the moment was perfect for it. And can I point out how passionate that kiss was? Seriously from that moment on all of their kisses has been Husband and Wife level of affection. 

So let’s get one thing straight: Hiccup is not a shy lover, he’s a romantic. And he’s not afraid of going in for a more passionate display of affection. 

It’s been said that we really only fall in love with three people in our lifetime.

Yet, it’s also believed that we need each of these loves for a different reason.

Often our first is when we are young, in high school even. It’s the idealistic love—the one that seems like the fairytales we read as children.

This is the love that appeals to what we should be doing for society’s sake—and probably our families. We enter into it with the belief that this will be our only love and it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t feel quite right, or if we find ourselves having to swallow down our personal truths to make it work because deep down we believe that this is what love is supposed to be.

Because in this type of love, how others view us is more important than how we actually feel.

It’s a love that looks right.

The second is supposed to be our hard love—the one that teaches us lessons about who we are and how we often want or need to be loved. This is the kind of love that hurts, whether through lies, pain or manipulation.

We think we are making different choices than our first, but in reality we are still making choices out of the need to learn lessons—but we hang on. Our second love can become a cycle, oftentimes one we keep repeating because we think that somehow the ending will be different than before. Yet, each time we try, it somehow ends worse than before.

Sometimes it’s unhealthy, unbalanced or narcissistic even. There may be emotional, mental or even physical abuse or manipulation—most likely there will be high levels of drama. This is exactly what keeps us addicted to this storyline, because it’s the emotional rollercoaster of extreme highs and lows and like a junkie trying to get a fix, we stick through the lows with the expectation of the high.

With this kind of love, trying to make it work becomes more important than whether it actually should.

It’s the love that we wished was right.

And the third is the love we never see coming. The one that usually looks all wrong for us and that destroys any lingering ideals we clung to about what love is supposed to be. This is the love that comes so easy it doesn’t seem possible. It’s the kind where the connection can’t be explained and knocks us off our feet because we never planned for it.

This is the love where we come together with someone and it just fits—there aren’t any ideal expectations about how each person should be acting, nor is there pressure to become someone other than we are.

We are just simply accepted for who we are already—and it shakes to our core.

It isn’t what we envisioned our love would look like, nor does it abide by the rules that we had hoped to play it safe by. But still it shatters our preconceived notions and shows us that love doesn’t have to be how we thought in order to be true.

This is the love that keeps knocking on our door regardless of how long it takes us to answer.

It’s the love that just feels right.

Maybe we don’t all experience these loves in this lifetime, but perhaps that’s just because we aren’t ready to. Maybe the reality is we need to truly learn what love isn’t before we can grasp what it is.

Possibly we need a whole lifetime to learn each lesson, or maybe, if we’re lucky, it only takes a few years.

Perhaps it’s not about if we are ever ready for love, but if love is ready for us.

And then there may be those people who fall in love once and find it passionately lasts until their last breath. Those faded and worn pictures of our grandparents who seemed just as in love as they walked hand-in-hand at age 80 as they did in their wedding picture—the kind that leaves us wondering if we really know how to love at all.

Someone once told me they are the lucky ones, and perhaps they are.

But I kinda think that those who make it to their third love are really the lucky ones.

They are the ones who are tired of having to try and whose broken hearts lay beating in front of them wondering if there is just something inherently wrong with how they love.

But there’s not; it’s just a matter of if their partner loves in the same way they do or not.

Just because it has never worked out before doesn’t mean that it won’t work out now.

What it really comes down to is if we are limited by how we love, or instead love without limits. We can all choose to stay with our first love, the one that looks good and will make everyone else happy. We can choose to stay with our second under the belief that if we don’t have to fight for it, then it’s not worth having—or we can make the choice to believe in the third love.

The one that feels like home without any rationale; the love that isn’t like a storm—but rather the quiet peace of the night after.

And maybe there’s something special about our first love, and something heartbreakingly unique about our second…but there’s also just something pretty amazing about our third.

The one we never see coming.
The one that actually lasts.
The one that shows us why it never worked out before.

And it’s that possibility that makes trying again always worthwhile, because the truth is you never know when you’ll stumble into love.

“I think this new album is much more reflective. It’s also centred around extremely different things; half of the album is about a relationship that I had to end. It’s not something I feel good about, and it’s not something I’d really addressed before in my songwriting. In pop music in general it’s always this spurned ex-lover type of thing, but this time it wasn’t that at all. It was more like the guilt that you have to deal with that comes from hurting someone else. It’s just as hard as being rejected or dumped.“

Happy Birthday FROOT! (13.03.2015)

Mars Signs

If Mars is in Aries, one is often attracted to a strong, independent, and forthright partner, perhaps athletic in appearance, but more importantly, direct, confident, and straightforward. Ultra sensitive or shy lovers are not usually the most attractive lovers to these people, as they tend to prefer strong and independent types. Partners who don’t beat around the bush, who state what they want, and who display a certain level of confidence are ideal.

If Mars is in Taurus, one is often attracted to lovers who possess a stable, secure, and very strong aura about them. Meat-and-potatoes types are definitely these people’s “cup of tea”. Unstable, overly intellectual, or “flaky” lovers are simply not what these people would define “real men/women”. These people like their lovers simple to please, traditionally masculine/feminine, and strong. They often are especially turned on by sexually simple but sensual lovers.  

If Mars is in Gemini, intelligence ranks very high on one’s list of ideal qualities in a partner. An athletic or tomboyish look, sometimes on the slim side, is often preferred. Wittiness is a huge turn-on for these people. Versatility, liveliness, and playfulness are qualities in lovers that these people find devastatingly attractive. They’re not especially impressed with what they might consider “less evolved” types of lovers who display more typical, or traditional, masculine/feminine traits. Depressed or boring types won’t do. These people want to be stimulated, and their brains are their biggest sexual organs.

If Mars is in Cancer, one may prefer the “sensitive type” of partner who is compassionate, sensitive, and protective. These people sometimes are attracted to temperamental sorts, finding moodiness in a partner rather intriguing. They want lovers with “layers” (remember Shrek?). However, they are not into the type of “sensitive” lovers that Mars in Pisces people are most attracted to. In fact, they generally want lovers who are strong and traditionally masculine/feminine. Generally, these people prefer lovers who are physically strong or at least look that way - they love to feel protected.

If Mars is in Leo, one may be attracted to lovers who are proud, outgoing, and perhaps even gaudy. Aloofness or a dignified, confident aura is usually appealing to these people. These people are more inclined to enjoy lovers who possess a rather bold, confident manner–and style! Playfulness and fun are very important to these people, and the uptight type or overly serious partner is not going to do it for them. Stinginess is a huge turn-off, too. These people want their lovers generous, dignified, and confident. These people do want their lovers to be a little possessive and jealous, as it makes them feel more alive, wanted, and attractive.

If Mars is in Virgo, an appealing partner to one’s is usually an understated, rather simple appearance without too much glamour or ostentatiousness. Healthy, natural, and clean are most appealing physical qualities, and a certain amount of intelligence as well as a modest, sensible approach to life. These people are turned off by lovers who are overly confident, bossy, or unkind. They are looking for perceptive lovers who are kind and helpful. Competency is important, but these people aren’t big on lovers who are show-offs. A quietly competent aura is best.

If Mars is in Libra, one is most attracted to lovers with understated charm, good manners, and a pleasing and balanced appearance. Coarseness or rudeness is often a turn-off, and so is independence! These people prefer lovers who are cooperative and who are willing to please. Romantic lovers are a huge turn-on, and these people truly appreciate classy sorts.

If Mars is in Scorpio, a complicated, dark, powerful, and passionate partner is the biggest turn-on. One wants a partner with “layers”- one who has depth and is complicated enough to intrigue them. One is especially attracted to lovers who ooze sensuality, who are perhaps a little dark and mysterious (even brooding), and who have a magnetic and powerful aura. Intensity is a turn-on for these people - flighty, superficial, and indifferent types need not apply! These people generally do enjoy a certain level of possessiveness in a partner.

If Mars is in Sagittarius, one is most impressed with a partner who is playful, fun, intelligent, and honest. An energetic, happy aura in a partner is often most appealing. Joking around is a must, and a huge turn-on for these people! They want to have a good time, and to have long conversations with their lovers as well. They are not especially attracted to lovers who are overly groomed; generally don’t like too much “decoration” or lovers who put on airs.  A tousled, casual appearance is just fine with these people - in fact, it’s preferred.  A partner’s status is not of huge interest to these people - they are looking for honest partners whose egos aren’t tied up in what they do for a living or how they look.

If Mars is in Capricorn, one is generally attracted to competent lovers, perhaps well-established business types or otherwise accomplished lovers. One doesn’t necessarily go for status, but one does want a partner who has an aura of competence about them. One is looking for a certain level of security, and is unimpressed with lovers who are drifters, irresponsible, or flighty. A stable, directed partner with goals in life and a responsible, even serious, attitude to life is important to this person.

If Mars is in Aquarius, one can be most impressed by lovers who are somewhat unconventional or kooky in their choice of clothes and overall style. One wants an interesting partner; they can certainly be attractive, but boring? Hardly. A partner with a brain is important, although one won’t be attracted to a brainy type. Somebody who is perceptive, a little unconventional, and perhaps somewhat aloof is most attractive. Rigid or boring types simply won’t do.

If Mars is in Pisces, one is often impressed with a partner who is sensitive, compassionate, and intriguingly complicated. Lacking in confidence is just fine, and so is a touch of helplessness. A “starving artist” type may be appealing, or a partner who is downtrodden in some way, as these people enjoy lovers who have a distinct soft side. The strong, independent types are not turn-ons for these people.
