  • 일주일만에드디어짜잔두둥 핸드폰켜기 일보직전.. 무섭다. 아, 전 핸드폰 두개씁니다. 바람돌이라거나 뭐 그딴건 아니에요. 빚쟁이의 수사망을 피해가기 위한 몸부림일뿐냐하하하하크하ㅏ

Tada~ About to turn on the cell phone for the first time in a week.. Scared. Oh, I use two cell phones. It’s not like I’m a playboy or anything. Just a struggle to avoid creditor’s dragnet LOL

  • 근데요, 잘 지냈죠?

Btw, have you been well?

  • 잘지내냐고만물었을뿐이야. 네 아니오로만 대답해 스크롤땡기기 스킬이 녹슬었단말이여 유유

I only asked if you’ve been well. Just answer in yes or no. Cuz scroll-down skill got rusted TT

  • RT @[Cine21 Reporter]혼자 있는데도 더 혼자 있고 싶다. ‘내’가 꺼져줬으면 좋겠다.

RT@[Cine21 Reporter] Even when I’m alone, the more I wanna be alone. I wish ‘me’ to get lost.

  • 현실을 받아들인다고해서 체계를 인정하는것은 아닙니다. 라는건 결국 나는 무능한 인간입니다. 와 연결되지만 그마저도 현실에 기꺼이 치여 집구석으로 날아와 청승맞게도, 겨우, 고작, 남몰래 칼을 갑니다. 뒷구녕으로 꼬리를 몇개나 흔들어드려야 할지..퓌곤해

Even if I embrace the reality, it’s not that I accept the system. Saying this would connect to that I’m an incompetent person in the end, but even that was gladly ran over by the reality, and I flew home miserably, barely, only, and secretly to sharpen a knife. Wonder how many tails I need to wag (for them) through the back door..Tired.

  • 그리고 문뜩, 나는 나의 푸념스킬이 눈에 띄게 얕아진것을 확인하고는 재빨리 도망가야지리릭. 오늘, 멘션은 안볼겁니다.

And, ssudenly, I identified that my grumbling skill’s gotten evidently shallow, so I’ll quickly run awayyy. Today, I won’t check the mentions.

  • 사는게 다 ‘그렇죠’ 세상이 다 ‘그렇죠’ 인생이 다 ‘그렇죠’ 사람이 다 ‘그렇죠’ 의 멘션은 안보겠다고 까불고는 보고야 말았죠 그렇죠 암 그렇구 말구요 무섭게도 지지리도 구질구질하게도 ‘그렇게’ 배웠으니까.
Living is all ‘like that’ The world is all ‘like that’ Life is all ‘like that’ Man are all ‘like that’

I ended up reading this mention after acting up saying I won’t check any. Oh, yes. that’s right. Because, scarcely, dreadfully, and squalidly, (we) learned ‘like that.’

  • 세월이나 삶이나 사회나 지랄이나 그딴이름의 빌어먹을 ‘그렇다는 교과서’ 선생들을 다 패 죽여버리고싶어 정말 샤방샤방하게. 애새끼들은 다 ‘그렇죠’ 암 그렇다죠 푸하하 그런거잖아요? 그게 그렇게 쉬워?!!

Time, life, society, or bullshit. Damn ‘textbook teaching it’s all like that’ of those names. I just wanna beat those teachers to death seriously brightly. Kids are all ‘like that.’ Yes, that’s right lol Isn’t that so? Is that that easy?!!

(*YAI doesn’t mean that he literally wants to kill the teachers. Teachers here mean the textbook which is another metaphor for all the customs and traditional teachings of Korea that suggest individuals to make compromises with the society and to settle for less troubles.-InK)

  • 그렇다고 하지마 세상이 그래도 나는 안그럴께 너도 그러지 마 그래야 그렇다는 세상. 바뀌는거잖아. 고깝고 시끄럽고 손가락에 힘이 딸리는 어르신은 심플하게 언팔을하하 난 진짜 무서우니까 도망갈꺼야리뤼리릭

Don’t say it’s like that. Even if the world does that, I won’t. Don’t you do that either. In this way, the world like that will change. The elders who are displeased, think of it too loud, and have no strength in their fingers shall simply Unfollow HaHa I’m really scared, so I’ll run awayyyyy.

  • 그레서 오늘 난 ‘요롷게’ 크하하 안녕?그렇쟁이들 좋은 아침이야 나한텐 아침이야 여긴 내 타임라인이니까능요

So, today, I’m ‘like this’ LOL Hi? You lil kids-like-that, it’s a good morning. It’s morning to me cuz this is my timeline.

(*He seems quite playful. It’s over 3pm right now. Forgot to mention that the tweets from the 18th also had this playful tone to them.-InK)


*I will be adding more mentions onto this post if YAI tweets more by 20th.

After he said he was running away from twitter, he actually didn’t go to sleep right away but wrote something on his mini-homepy. If I briefly summarize what it was about:

He was desperate to have some time alone at home at dawn to write, yet he decides not to write for last night (8 hrs ago). There’s a book he’s got as a gift titled “Why Do I Write,” and he hasn’t even pulled it out of his trunk yet, but he wants to find out why he has to write. He might grab that book because he’s too curious to figure out why even if it’s someone else’s suggestive why. He recently changed his mini-homepy’s BGM to “What Else Is There” by Royksopp.

  1. Aoooww.. So he did try Runaway from twitter?!? Yet couldn’t resist his desire to write? I bet this is not his first attempt. Hahaha
    Personally (after reading the translation) I feel like YAI has so much pains and sorrows in his early life (far before he becoming actor) and he keep the bitterness deep inside upto now. It shows as he keeps bring up the social system issues. If he studied abroad probably his thinking pattern will be much different from now? But it means we couldn’t see him as an actor. Dilemma for me. Hahaha (selfish me)

  2. I like his honesty. Putting away his celebrity mask and revealing the truth of himself, expressing all his disappointments through twitters and hompy even though there will be millions all people read it (yet may criticised him). He is just being him! I love him! Please don’t so depressed! I really wish you being happy!!

    • I had a similar reaction today. IDK..there must have been something that’s very disturbing to him, i guess.. He was very bitter and twisted esp. last night..And obviously, he was drunk. I didn’t put up some of his personal mentions to his friends, but he was drunk when he got home that late. I was on Twitter when he started tweeting like 9 hrs ago. I was worried about his state of mind that seemed sad and upset at something, but soon after, i retweeted him smth like “for sometimes, enough is really enough.” idk.. i’m overthinking too much like YAI these days, and IT IS really tiring to be mentally awake 24/7. I wish he could let it go sometimes whatever it is that’s stuck in him from the past. I agree with Aoikarin that he seems to have unhealed scars from the past (thruout the school system), and i’m sure his memories will be helpful for his acting skills and career, but for personal UHS, he needs to let it go seriously to be completely free.
      why writing??
      cuz writing is another form that helps him breathing.
      It maybe that i’m a bit older than him…or I have a younger brother just about his age, I become one of those elders he described in his tweets. I’m just seriously worried about him and me who’s spending too much time reading and thinking about what’s in his mind…sigh

      • I’ve learn to control my obsessive behavior to over analyze and think too much. There comes a time when you need to take a deep breath, learn something from the situation, and then, let go… [Personally to survive and succeed in corporate america, i.e., the real world, you need to let go/manage and move forward. You have to play the game, but without loosing yourself in the game. This gets difficult/tricky and your always learning… ]

        I’m definitely drawn to him because of his complexities, angst emotions, innocence, … He scares me sometimes because of how deeply he gets pulled into his emotions/situations.

        • totally agreed!!
          about “He scares me sometimes because of how deeply he gets pulled into his emotions/situations,” isn’t it awesome that he’s an actor?? that’s exactly what he needs to do for acting. and, he does well on it, doesn’t he?

      • Such heart-felt comments from you all. The most brilliant guys in this world are sometimes those who are the most abnormal. I once met John Nash and, beside his *past* mental problems,
        he left me a very strong impression because he’s just so…peculiar. But I’m sure he has “a beautiful mind.” Then talking about some of my fav guys: Nietzsche, Phillip K. Dick-their lives were prolonged episodes of madness and schizophrenia. Yet in those states they wrote the most beautiful and inspiring pieces. I’m sure it’s challenging to, well, stay and get to know them personally. That probably explains why Ah In scares us sometimes. His mind is so complicated and emotional he makes me feel alarmed.

        But I think people normally get very emo when they’re drunk, right? I swear I cry every single time I’m drunk! So that may be something that will make you less worried?

        • because of Ah-In’s beautiful mind, i tend to look at him and think of him as as thinker, writer more than an actor. he choose his script carefully and make it an extension of his state of mind instead of just pretending to be someone else.
          as usual, reading his work makes me full of emotion, pulling the thinking muscle in my brain. i love his writing and at the same time ache to see how he suffer from his emotion… wish there is someone who can ease his pain.. even just a little.. T.T
          thanks Ink for your beautiful translations. ^^

          • Totally agree with you all…great thinker are the most bizzare ones! And our YAI is one! (no doubt)
            And to chloefargo, I’m drawn to him as well for those qualities, his complexities, angst emotions, innocence, all rolled into ONE. He have so much depth and layers…and that keep me (us) so interested and continuosly amaze. He’s beautiful minds intrigues me and (Honestly) scares the hell out of me sometimes…this is a serious case of FANGIRLING to the Highest LEVEL!

            Ink ,for your beautiful translations THANK YOU 🙂

  3. “Don’t say it’s like that. Even if the world does that, I won’t. Don’t you do that either. In this way, the world like that will change. The elders who are displeased, think of it too loud, and have no strength in their fingers shall simply Unfollow HaHa I’m really scared, so I’ll run awayyyyy.”

    This just resonates with my all time favorite quote by George Bernard Shaw:

    “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

    Haha I love his ” f*** conventions” attitude. The elders who are displease can simply “unfollow” him on twitter??? ROFL he’s my hubby for a reason!

  4. Thanks for translating!!! My curiosity was getting the better of me. I’ll admit that I did read it a few times to try to understand, at a high level, and still I’m uncertain. I wonder what events triggered this, if any… He reminds me of me during my existential, Jean-Paul Sartre moments. I feel for him because there are no real answers but angst if you think too deeply about life and existence. It’s circular, unending… I’m glad he is able to release his frustration, sadness, happiness, etc., through writing. It’s not good to internalize which is even more maddening.

    • Hi Chloefargo,
      I understand how you had to read it a few times, and yet, it’s still hard to understand. Rephrasing is so tempting sometimes, but I try my best not to. He’s a writer. he knows what his doing with words, and even a typo is not an accident to him. Everything’s planned out including his ambiguous punctuation marks. I usually don’t like to put anything additional, but this time i had to put some periods lol cuz it wass running on like crazy~

      Even for korean readers, his writing would take a few times of reading (out loud) to understand. not that he uses highly educated vocabs but..something about his style is so unique. That must be why he refuses to read books by other writers: to maintain in his own style.

      After reading your comment, I’m glad that he can write and that he’s good at writing.

      • Hi,
        Even without being able to read Korean properly, I could feel, just in the volume, that he was in a frenzy state and tweeting/writing like mad. I deeply appreciate your integrity in translating and trying to remain as pure as possible in the process.

        Again, thanks for translating and allowing me to sleep at a reasonable hour. Otherwise, my curiosity would have pulled me to check the internet during the night for an english translation.

  5. Omg Ink …. you’re just an awesome awesome person … i’ve been soo looking forward to reading this post. thank u .. thank u .. thank u
    Now, I’ll have to go back and read and re-read this post … fascinating!

  6. In my articulation, I think he is frustrated about things as they are and about the helplessness of situation where ideals are beyond reach because everybody is saying that that’s just how things are or supposed to be. I got that vibe from this tweet:
    Living is all ‘like that’ The world is all ‘like that’ Life is all ‘like that Man are all ‘like that’ I ended up reading this mention after acting up saying I won’t check any. Oh, yes. that’s right. Scarcely, dreadfully, and squalidly (we) learned ‘like that.’

    That’s just my articulation, I might be wrong. I think it’s normal for youth his age to have this kind of pent up anger. I just hope he’s not too upset.

    • totally with you clim. I think that’s his point too. His frustration and even anger about having to conform to social conventions is clear. And he’s very loud in expressing his feelings to the world.

      • Clim and Tiny, i’m with you, too.
        “he’s very loud in expressing his feelings to the world.”…
        right. Ancientkingdom called me a few hours ago to suggest to soften one of his tweets: damn text book, wanna kill the teachers..one. She was concerned that my translation would cause your literal interpretation as if he meant to kill “teachers at school.” I’m sure that you guys won’t take it to that far away, but at the same time, it was true that his Krn writing could be read dangerously. just by having the words like teachers and textbook…
        Ppl are getting used to YAI style now, however his fans used to worry a lot when he started tweeting about Tablo controversy and President Yi’s name on his minihomepy. At least, I used to worry cuz there’s a part of me that doesn’t trust Krn society w/ its freedom of spch. (Some ppl said that YAI thinks as if he’s still the Red Messenger..to protect him from the public attack.) But, if you have a lil bit of interest in him, you can easily tell, he’s been like that from the beginning. And, he maybe right. If the freedom of Speech in Ksociety is that insecure, it needs to be challenged. Now, my trust in him has grown stronger.. but… I need to shut up and go to sleep now..LOL

        • Freedom of speech (including freedom of the press) is a basic and necessary foundation of a growing democratic, vibrant society and this right should be cherished and never compromised. Such censorship should be challenged and discussed critically. People have the fundamental right to voice opinions whether you agree with the them or not.

      • Just want to say that I don’t take the killing thing seriously. Obviously he’s kidding and his way of saying it so casually is very cute. I just had a thought that…If Ah In were born during Confucius’ or Mencius’ time, he could have been the one that changed the entire course of Asian history if he decided one day he wanted to (literally) kill either of them ROFL

  7. One last comment before signing off and going to bed, hopefully. A quote from YAI: “I think that true maturity is endlessly looking for answers and pressing forward, and sometimes failing.” I just LOVE the things that come out of his beautiful lips!

    • make it “…come out of his beautiful mind”. Haha.

      YAI is really indeed a very complex person. This is what makes him unique… as he often comes out with surprising thoughts and philosophy. Something that allows people to ponder and think… yeah, it can be quite scary. Even for me, who is just a year younger than him, do not have such opinionated mind (although I am still trying? Haha..).

      • How amazed am I when finding out a person has a same age and same consideration as me. But YAI has become my goal to reach. Right now, I’m trying to speak out loud all in my mind what I always cover before.

  8. This tweet messenger thingy’s great!! I caught him tweeting once again! I knew it!!!
    He’s gonna keep tweeting until the 20th which means I’ll be keep adding stuff on. LOL
    ah…. maybe i shouldn’t go to sleep for a while. 🙂

  9. Truly, this man’s thinking is quite complex for his age… ♥

    I only asked if you’ve been well. Just answer in yes or no. Cuz scroll-down skill became rusted TT
    – I can imagine the amount of tweets he must have gotten just for a simple question and that probably overwhelmed him 😛

    Even if I embrace the reality, it’s not that I accept the system…..
    Wonder how many tails I need to wag (for them) through the back door..Tired.

    – Oftentimes, there are things that we would rather not do but do anyway because we have to. We work because we have to, we even have to kiss-ass sometimes because we have to. We have to keep up with the b*llsh*t sometimes because we have to. Sad but true. I share Ah In’s sentiment here. 😦

    And, ssudenly, I identified that my grumbling skill’s gotten evidently shallow, so I’ll quickly run awayyy. Today, I won’t check the mentions.
    – No, you’re not being shallow. Not at all.

    Time, life, society, or bullshit. Damn ‘textbook teaching it’s all like that’ of those names. I just wanna beat those teachers to death seriously brightly. Kids are all ‘like that.’ Yes, that’s right lol Isn’t that so? Is that that easy?!!
    – Again, I feel for him on this one. Traditional teaching tells us what and what not to do. While that has its good points, it also keeps us from thinking for ourselves which leads to narrow-mindedness and bigotry.

    Oh my, reading Ah In’s writings is quite something, but it’s good because it challenges us to think and analyze… I actually enjoy reading other people’s comments because it’s interesting to know what’s on their minds. Every time there is a post about YAI’s tweets/interviews, it suddenly becomes like a discussion thread. It’s as if we’re in a philosophy class and YAI is our professor – a very hot one at that ^_^

      • Now that you mention it, I don’t think I’ll be able to concentrate 😛 I’ll just stare at him, repeat every word coming out of his mouth and nod in agreement. But once he calls me for an answer, I’m a goner XDD

      • summersky i really like your comment, as usual YAI is a good professor, teach us a bout life and what it mean. He really think a lot, even for just a simple thing. Really fall for his words more and more everyday, even some of his tweet I don’t understand but still keep going to learn in his class. Go!!! Professor YAI!!!

    • wow~~ it’s cool~ i love the idea of Ah-In being the professor and we surrounded him under the gingko tree, talking, discussing or even arguing about something… oh my… the SKKS scene is coming back for the Nth time… hehehe

  10. wow reading all your replies and interpretations are just as interesting as reading YAI’s tweets …..i wish there was a like button…..im too brain dead to add my two cents

    its so awesome that YAI has attracted such intelligent articulate fans to the haven …kinda proud to be his fan too …and be a member of the haven/icu

    don’t u guys sometimes wish you could tweet him back and then your like…oh yeah i dont know korean…lol

    • I’m proud to be part of this fandom too ^_^

      don’t u guys sometimes wish you could tweet him back and then your like…oh yeah i dont know korean…lol
      – Oh I do! All the time. But my knowledge of the Korean language is infinitesimal *sadface*

      • Me too! I love YAI and fall in love with this fansite too and the people who share opinions and comments. I don’t understand Korean and its culture. But this fansite help me to know more about YAI and give me the opportunity to know
        such enthusiatic fans with beautiful minds (it’s you guys) like YAI too. I am soooo glad I’m part of this YAI mania!

    • Hi all!

      Thank you for the translation, and also the discussion/comments.

      Yup Eshi, how I wish I know how to read and write korean. It will be good to be able to write to him. I keep on checking this page for his latest tweet translation. Why did I watch Sungkyunkwan Scandal in the first place? Now I can’t even get my work done, spent all the time searching/reading/looking for Ah In info as to want to know him more… thanks for this site…

  11. As usual I don’t understand everything but from what I understand he doesn’t scare me at all… I think if you tell someone like him that he is scary he feels more lonely lol… Just my opinion xD
    I hope he will never stop telling what he wants to tell.
    Well, thank you for translating :).

  12. Hahaha….good he have the same timeline as me…lol…just wakeup again…YAI just be happy and do what you want, maybe world going to be cruel to you, but just life your life like you want, someday everything going to be okey…FIGHTING!!!

  13. personally, I think its not too bad thinking so much, and I think this is a part of him that makes him so attractive as well. is he not a young boy at heart? He’s voicing out his thoughts and it also shows greatly that he doesn’t want to put up an act and pretend to be someone he isn’t:) I think its really cool. Thank you so much for the translation!!:) love the site:)

  14. Really really big thanks for the translation and sharing all this things! 🙂
    You guys are AMAZING! 🙂

    Actually,I suddenly moved the heart to open a twitter account past few weeks ..
    All because of YAI.. lol..
    I try to translate some of his tweet in some day via Google Translate..haha
    Even though I know it not provide a clear purpose. lol

    Regardless, YAI, we wish you to always be strong to face any challenge that comes in your life.Do whatever you believe it is the best.! 🙂

    We always support whatever is best for yourself!^^

  15. A million thanks for translating Yoo Ah In’s words…
    I always look forward to his writings…hunger for his thoughts..
    With my line of work….it’s nice to hear someone’s thoughts on how to look at the box on a different angle, shade or side…it’s quite refreshing actually..it makes you backup a few steps to be able to see the whole picture…
    I have every confident on Yoo Ah In…he’s actually quite sturdy, emotionally speaking, because he doesn’t deposit everything inside him but rather release it (like a steam) through his writings.
    For me, it feels like I’m reading Yoo Ah In’s diary.
    I have much respect to Yoo Ah In’s for doing this….hoping it’ll reach him, how helpful such gestures or his words aree to some people (and I’m one of the millions)….
    Hats off to you Yoo Ah In’s for such courage on sharing your thoughts…I, thank you for that…
    Hoping I can just shake your hand and simply say “Thank You”…

  16. I am dying to follow his tweets but I am a Filipina and can only speak Tagalog and English. Thank you guys for the translations! *hugs*
