Movie Review: Sky and Ocean (2009)

Hello Haveners! Wow, it’s been such a long time since I posted here so I’m glad I can finally present you guys a post. Our lovely tinysunbl asked me if this review can be posted here in Haven, and of course I said of course. The one posted here is the shortened version, if you can say, because the original is very long (a little over 1700 words to be exact). So for the comfort of you eyes and boosums, I present to you the short(er) version of my Sky and Ocean review! If you have the patience to read the full version, please head on over here. Enjoy!

Ah In’s Chuseok Tweet And Photos

Hi Haveners~

Ah In finally tweeted and shared a couple of photos on Chuseok!  As many of you know, he loves playing with words~ And, he did that again today!  Thanks to a little birdie who whispers in my ears, after a long discussion, here is the translation of Ah In’s tweet~

Note: The song “명동콜링” is sung by a Korean band called “Crying Nuts” and the “시그니처” is a brand name created by Levi’s Jean which is a “signature casual wear”~

Ah In’s Mini-hompy Post on 9/9/2011

Hi Haveners~

Some of you may know that Ah In recently posted a poem at his mini-hompy~ It is a poem titled “I Love You” written by a famous Korean poet, Jung Ho Seung (정호승)~ Thanks to my friend, Kong-yi nim, I got to see the translation of the poem~ After getting her permission, I am now able to share her translation with you here at Haven!

Please keep in mind that the translation is done literally and excuse us for doing so~ As everyone knows, when it comes to poem, it’s very hard to understand, left along translating it~^ ^~

Here is the original post by Ah In at his mini-hompy~



밥그릇을 들고 길을 걷는다

목이 말라 손가락으로 강물 위에

사랑한다라고 쓰고 물을 마신다

갑자기 먹구름이 몰리고

몇날 며칠 장대비가 때린다

도도히 황톳물이 흐른다

제비꽃이 아파 고개를 숙인다

비가 그친 뒤

강둑 위에서 제비꽃이 고개를 들고

강물을 내려다본다

젊은 송장 하나가 떠내려오다가


내 글씨에 걸려 떠내려가지 못한다

And below are the translations done by my friend Kong-yi nim~

I’m walking along the road holding a rice bowl.
I’m thirsty, so I’m writing ‘I love you’ with my finger on the river and drinking water.
Suddenly, dark clouds shadow,
A heavy rain’s pouring several days.
Red clay river flows with a rush.
A violet lowers her head for being sick.
After rain stops,
she raises her head on the riverbank and see the river.
A young dead body floats down the river and it is stuck on my handwriting ‘I love you’ and never washes away.

SISTAR’s Hyorin Wants to Appear on MBC “We Got Married” with Yoo Ah In

SISTAR recently appeared on MBC Every1‘s “Idol Weekly” that will air on September 10. During the show, they revealed facts regarding their weight, ideal type, plastic surgery, and personal strengths.

The show’s MCs, Jung Hyung Don and Defconn, were surprised by SISTAR’s honesty that’s usually not present in most girl groups nowadays. The MCs didn’t even have to request SISTAR for specific answers to avoid ambiguity due to the fact that they were always straight to the point instead of going off tangent.

What really caught the MCs’ attention was Hyorin‘s short comment regarding her ideal type. She stated, “As it has already been revealed, my ideal type is indeed Kang Dong Won, but I would really like to appear on the show, ‘We Got Married,’ with actor Yoo Ah In. I’m attracted to men with a bad boy image.” In addition to Hyorin’s comment, Soyou added, “I also like men with a bad boy image so I would also like to appear on ‘We Got Married’ with Yoo Ah In.” After Soyou revealed this fact on the show, Hyorin and Soyou appeared to become a little tense.

Soyou later sent a video message to Yoo Ah In saying, “Please pick between me or Hyorin!” After she sent this message, her face turned as red as an apple which made her look younger and cuter.
