다정다감 (多情多感)

You couldn't tell if it was 봄비 (spring rain) or 사랑비 (love rain). One umbrella isnt big enough to shield two persons but rain during spring isn't like those during monsoon; raindrops are very fine and none is going to get drenched. They would still be dry enough for dinner later.

강심수정 (江深水靜)

The moment after sun set was perhaps the most peaceful time of the day at Hangang. Another day had ended and the reflection of my day started. I hoped I have done my best and not regret what I did or not done during the day. I was in total peace with myself, I guess that was a meaningful day.

매경한고 (梅經寒苦)

In Greek mythology, when Pandora opened the jar (more popularly known as the Pandora's box) given to her by Zeus, all the bad things were released into the world except for one that lay at the bottom - hope that is. Since hope was hidden from mankind, it has to be sought. I used to think it could be found at the end of rain, darkness or winter. But perhaps not, hope may have been lying in our heart all along. If not, how are we able to see rainbow, sunrise and spring.
