Hello~~ dear haveners~ ^ ^*
Long time no see~ How have you been? ^_^*
As you already know, I’m Stacy~ (a habit staring at YOO/ @fascinatedwithU)
As a matter of fact, I’ve been so busy working in my real world~ TAT; I’m afraid I couldn’t spend much time translating YAI’s articles and vids~ However, I couldn’t help trying to invest my time to translate and interpret YAI’s thoughts ’cause his unique tweet mentions finally popped out! ^ ^ In addition, I have to say I’d like to REALLY appreciate another K-fan, @sophia0s nim’s quick translations~ Her translations are pretty good~ She also gave her consent to be another K-translator for you haveners!! Yay~~ ^ ^ And then, I’m posting @sophia0s nim’s translations now in celebration of her acceptance to be a translator for you haveners~ ^ ^
Anyway~ here are YAI’s tweet mentions and translations~ ^ ^
자신이 있어서 목숨을 내놓은게 아니다. 목숨을 내놓고 보니 자신이 생기더라. 그래야 살아지는게 이십대의 절반이었다. 골백번을 죽을 각오로 질기게도 잘 살았더랬다. 죽어도 아쉬울것 없어서 죽을만큼 잘 살았으면 좋겠다. 자꾸만 구차해진다. 아까워서.
I was confident of myself so I sacrificed my life. It is not true. I sacrificed my life so I could get the confidence. During the first half of my 20s, I lived like that. I have survived death tenaciously. I really want to live well. Often being pathetic, it’s too precious to lose.
And I also found some relations between words in sentences with YAI’s other tweet mention. As you guys already know, YAI quoted some passages from a famous literary work. (The Fruits of the Earth – Andre Gide)
내가 살아서 못 다한 젊음의 열망이 내 죽음 이후에까지 남아서 나를 괴롭히게 되지 않을까 두렵다. 내 속에서 원하고 있는 모든 것을 이 땅위에 털어놓고 나서 더 이상 바랄 것이 없는, 빈 몸의 완전한 절망 속에서 죽기를 나는 희망한다. – 앙드레 지드
I’m afraid that my desire of youth which I couldn’t accomplish during my entire life would still stay even after my death and distress me. I hope that after I have expressed on this earth all that was in me wanting to be expressed-I hope that I may die satisfied and utterly hopeless. – Andre Gide (Thanks a lot~ Francesca~ ^ ^*)
According to his messages, I think, he seems to be really introspective while writing them down. We could also recognize his whole attitude to life. Although he’s still young, he’s confessing that he’s lived so fiercely throughout his entire life. Everyone knows few things can affect our whole quality of life as strongly as our attitude can. And YAI has a reputation as someone who has a strong ego and gives it his best shot to live fiercely. Furthermore, he shows his strong attachment to life through his messages. He felt so regretful over his vanishing youth that he should say he’s often being pathetic. But I don’t think he would have many regrets about his whole life as long as he lives with strong convictions about being honest to himself and works professionally. I surely think he can achieve anything he wants the moment he has a strong faith in himself as well. A few things we can do while watching the introspective guy are just that we send messages of support with all our hearts and hope that he is not losing his beliefs and convictions not only as an actor but also as an individual.
As I always said, they are just my interpretaions and there might be some errors or misinterpretations~ If you have something you’d like to correct in the translations, please feel free to reply behind this post and point it out~
We just hope we will help you haveners out to understand YAI’s messages better~ Don’t you think so, @sophia0s nim? ^ ^
Have a nice time with our introspective YAI! ^ ^
