    Der Abschied
    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    Laß mein Aug den Abschied sagen,
    Den mein Mund nicht nehmen kann!
    Schwer, wie schwer ist er zu tragen!
    Und ich bin doch sonst ein Mann.

    Traurig wird in dieser Stunde
    Selbst der Liebe süßstes Pfand,
    Kalt der Kuß von deinem Munde,
    Matt der Druck von deiner Hand.

    Sonst, ein leicht gestohlnes Mäulchen,
    O wie hat es mich entzückt!
    So erfreuet uns ein Veilchen,
    Das man früh im März gepflückt.

    Doch ich pflücke nun kein Kränzchen,
    Keine Rose mehr für dich.
    Frühling ist es, liebes Fränzchen,
    Aber leider Herbst für mich!

    Farewell
    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    Let my eyes bid farewell to her
    For my mouth no longer can.
    Hard, how hard is this loss to bear
    Despite my being a man!

    To sadness in this hour grown older
    Does love’s sweet forfeit belong,
    For the kiss from your mouth is now colder
    And your handclasp no longer strong.

    No more a mouth so easily turned
    O what delights it gave me!
    Like those that the violet earned
    When plucked in March so early.

    But now, I gather no flounces,
    No further roses in bloom.
    Spring is the season, dear Frances
    But for me, alas, it is autumn.

        Didn’t expect anyone would know the poet. I’m glad to see an actual Beanie fan here ☺️

Such a heartbreaking scene.
The one thing he most needed to hear came not from his father but from the son of his mentor and father-figure.

So it looks like they’re going all out on the tropey antics. Guess I’m gonna have to rewire my brain for this — all for the love of Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin.

    It’s going to test my love for Son Ye Jin *sigh*

      It’s a very trying year for kdrama fans. Vagabond is melting my brain, now I am crash landing… Sigh…

        I dropped it at the first episode 😂 I hope it won’t be the case for Crash Landing

          I’m counting on HB and SYJ top caliber performance to pull through the cringey stuff.

        Should we start a support group in advance?

          That’s a great idea! I have a bad feeling we’re gonna need it 😂 And I think we should throw in emergency parachute kits too just in case. 🤣

      I remember reading about them wanting to be in a RomCom together. Perhaps this was the best project that was offered to them.

That “fateful” encounter. I have been waiting for this moment and show delivered perfectly.

I can’t believe writer pulled out that classic trope. Hwi just can’t seem to catch a break and my heart just breaks for him. He needs to meet BangWon soon to have that needed leverage.

    I think the story would have been a lot more interesting without *THAT* trope.

      I know.. writer loves all the tropes this show seem to have it all. Good thing for me, I think the actors’ performance and production work are compelling. The story has enough twist to keep me interested and anticipate how it will all unfold.

“My Country” It has only been two episodes but I am already hooked and just have to rave about how good it is. This clip of the two male leads fighting off the guards is one of my favorites.

      Yeah, I am disappointed Secretaries Cha and Kim did not get together either.

      Well, at least they are back together working ;).

        My ship was Secretary Cha and Secretary Jung. and that Ship sailed for sure, except all in the background. 🙂
        I AM very happy that all 4 secretaries are reunited though. they make a fabulous team.

      He does have that youthful charm. And yet, somehow he has that mature and serious vibe in his demeanor which is endearing.

Gotta love how this show manages to keep me glued to the screen, on the edge of my seat while turning on the waterworks all within the first two hours.

I am Jang Geu-Rae! Haha! Didn’t notice the change in my name label – had to actually look this up! Misaeng is on my To Watch list. I loved Im Si-Wan in The King In Love and Byun Yo-Han in Mr Sunshine.
