페이스북과 유튜브에서 엄청난 조회수와 댓글을 자아낸 웹드라마 시리즈~ [연플리]  🙂

요즘 썩 끌리는 드라마도 없고… 시간이 없어서 TV를 잘 보지 못했는데, TV보다 더 스토리가 재밌는 웹드라마를 발견했다. 🙂 이 짧은 영상안에 자신이 하고자 하는 이야기를 제대로 담아서 멋진 스토리를 담아낸 작가도 작가이지만… 남자 주인공, 여자 주인공 모두 너무도 매력적이라 자꾸 생각나게 되는 드라마. 거기에 감미로운 음악까지…  =) 순수한 학창시절의 풋풋한 사랑이 그대로 느껴지는… 수줍고 예쁜 사랑의 시작. 덕분에 함께 설레일 수 있어서 다음 에피소드가 기대된다. 곧 브라운관에서도 볼 수 있기를… 🙂

….라고 적고 구글을 검색해보니 6월 중순부터 JTBC에서도 방송을 시작~ JTBC 연플리 방송 뉴스

아..! 역시.., 좋은 스토리를 알아보는, JTBC. 🙂

기대되는 #웹드라마 의 시대~ =)

[Documentary] Dancing with Jikji – /Jikji Code/ Gutenberg? Did he really exist? Was he really the first inventor of the movable metal press?

[Documentary] Dancing with Jikji – /Jikji Code/ Gutenberg? Did he really exist? Was he really the first inventor of the movable metal press?

I just finished watching this new documentary that just got released last month in Seoul. It’s by a Canadian scholar David Redman and explores the story of Jikji – the buddhist book that’s been printed by the world’s first movable metal press but remains almost unknown to the general public. It was very interesting to follow their indepth researches in and around Europe and Asia, and gave me a fresh perspective about ‘What is History’.

I was already aware of the existence of Jikji and its significance, so the stories about Jikji didn’t surprise me much. But what shocked me was that there were almost no records or evidences of Gutenberg ever existing or even the valid proof that he was the one who had printed the famous bible; and yet the entire world and the academia have firmly supported and stood by this belief without any doubts until today.

Would love to discover more about the Jikji story later on.

[Biography also states there’s no evidence of Gutenberg]:

https://www.biography.com/people/johannes-gutenberg-9323828

Gutenberg carried on his printing activities for several more years, but little evidence exists of what he actually published because he didn’t put his name on any of his printings. 

Records of Johannes Gutenberg’s later years are as sketchy as his early life. Still living in Mainz, it is believed that he went blind in the last months of his life. 

 

 

“Audition, The Fools Who Dream” by Emma Stone, from the movie [La La Land]

“Audition, The Fools Who Dream” by Emma Stone, from the movie [La La Land]

 

Good morning, Monday. 🙂 Starting my week by listening to one of my favorite music, “Audition (The Fools Who Dream)” from the movie, La La Land.  I particularly liked this one because of its lyrics.

“The water was freezing
She spent a month sneezing
But said she would do it again”

How better could anyone narrate the experience of falling in love than with these simple lines…? Falling in love is such an absurd act of blindness… whether it’s with our dreams or with someone. We might fall a little too hard, and we might have to suffer a bit too long. But if you’re truly, madly in love…. You will still fall. Jump in. Without fear, without regrets… over, and over again. 🙂

p.s.) Here’s to the ones who dream…. 🙂

 

LA LA LAND

“Audition (The Fools Who Dream)”
(performed by Emma Stone)

My aunt used to live in Paris.
I remember, she used to come home
and she would tell us these stories about being abroad.
And I remember,
she told us that
she jumped into the river once.
Barefoot.
She smiled…

. . .

Leapt without looking
And tumbled into the Seine
The water was freezing
She spent a month sneezing
But said she would do it again

Here’s to the ones who dream
Foolish as they may seem
Here’s to the hearts that ache
Here’s to the mess we make

She captured a feeling
Sky with no ceiling
The sunset inside a frame

She lived in her liquor
And died with a flicker
I’ll always remember the flame

Here’s to the ones who dream
Foolish as they may seem
Here’s to the hearts that ache
Here’s to the mess we make

She told me:
“A bit of madness is key
To give us new colors to see
Who knows where it will lead us?
And that’s why they need us”

So bring on the rebels
The ripples from pebbles
The painters, and poets, and plays

And here’s to the fools who dream
Crazy as they may seem
Here’s to the hearts that break
Here’s to the mess we make

I trace it all back to then
Her, and the snow, and the Seine
Smiling through it
She said she’d do it again

잘 알고 지내던 언니가 몇 차례나 꼭 한번 시간내어 보라고 신신당부를 했던 드라마,

김하늘 주연의 “공항가는 길”.

 

이 세상엔… 사연이 많은 이들이 가득하다.

사랑하지만 사랑한다고 말 할 수 없는 이들,

사랑하지 않지만, 사랑하는 척 가장하며 살아가는 이들,

사랑이 무엇인지 그 말의 무게가 무엇인지 몰라서 쉽게 고백하는 이들,

사랑한다는 말에 담긴 무게가 무엇인지를 알아서 차마 내뱉지 못하고 담아버리는 이들.

 

. . .

 

우연히 운전하며 튼 라디오에서 흘러나온 곡이 좋아 찾아 듣다보니…

자꾸 듣고 싶어지는 그녀의 감미로운 목소리 때문인지,

아니면 왠지 모르게 가슴을 쿵 울리는 가사 때문인지,

오랫만에 감상적인 저녁을 맞고 있다.

 

아픈 사랑도 사랑이겠지만….

굳이 그런 사랑을 선택할 필요가 있을까.

시간은 우리 곁을 무심히 지나치고 있고,

사랑은 구걸하듯 부탁해서 얻어지는 것이 아닌데.

 

눈은 사람의 마음을 통하는 창이자,

우리 영혼이 만날 수 있는 공간이다.

 

운명을 믿어서일까.

난 그 눈을 바라보면 그냥 알 것만 같다.

내 사람인 사람이라면,

그 눈 너머에 담겨있는 그 사람의 소울이,

분명 내 안에 담긴 소울을 알아 볼 테니까.

마주치고, 또 마주치는 눈빛속에서,

다시는 같은 눈을 볼 수 없으리라는 것을.

왠지…. 알 것 만 같으니까.

“An original writer is not who imitates nobody,

but one whom nobody can imitate.”

François-René de Chateaubriand, quoted

Lately I’ve been following this new k-drama series, “Chicago Typewriter”. It’s a love triangle story between three writers from the past. This series became quite popular outside of Korea (like in Indonesia, Malaysia..etc) but wasn’t that successful in Korea.

The first few episodes didn’t really live up to my expectations, but I began to enjoy it more as the series progressed about halfway through. 🙂 My favorite part of the drama was when Go Kyung-Pyo, the ghostwriter, recalled a phrase from “Laziness” by Charles Spurgeon, and courageously decided to finally reach out to his love, Im Soo Jung. I was not familiar with literary works of Spurgeon before, so it was nice to be introduced to a new writer.

Enjoy the music & these beautiful quotes from the “Chicago Typewriter”. 🙂

일제시대를 보낸 작가들의 환생과 로맨스 이야기라고 해서 기대를 가지고 보았지만.. 생각보다 초반 구성이 조금 아쉬웠던 드라마, 시카고 타자기..  🙂 하지만 중반 이후부터 좋은 대사들과 배우들의 연기덕분에 즐겁게 보았다. 오늘은 반가운 비가 내리다 보니, 유독 이 곡이 귓가를 맴돌아서 짧게 소개하는 글을 올려보았다. 드라마의 하이라이트는 아마도 고경표가 내레이션을 한 찰스 스펄전의 명시가 소개된 부분이 아니었을까.. 사람과 유령으로 만났기에.. 이어질 수 없는것을 잘 알지만, 너무도 사랑하는 여인을 향해 그럼에도 불구하고 용기를 내어 한 마디를 던지던 그의 모습은 간절함 때문이었는지 무척 인상이 깊었다.  아마도 드라마를 보던 사람들 모두가 가슴을 졸였으리라. 🙂

“불러야 할 노래가 있다면 지금 부르십시오.

당신의 해가 저물면 노래 부르기엔 너무나 늦습니다.

당신의 노래를 지금 부르십시오.”

 

“When roses bloom and the heart flutters

give me that smile of yours

If there is a song you must sing

then sing it now

for when your day draws to a close

it is already too late to sing.

Sing your song now”

– Yoo Jin Oh, quoted from Laziness by Charles Spurgeon

“If you think of something to do, then do it now

Today may be a clear day

But you do not know if you may see clouds tomorrow

Since yesterday is no longer yours, do it now

If you have a kind word to say, say it now

For you may not have tomorrow

The person you love won’t always be by your side

If you have something loving to say, say it now

If you wish to smile, then smile now

Do it now

Before your friend leaves you”

– Yoo Jin Oh, quoted from Spurgeon’s poem

[지금 하십시오]  by 찰스 스펄전

할 일이 생각나거든
지금 하십시오.

오늘 하늘은 맑지만
내일은 구름이 보일는지 모릅니다.

어제는 이미 당신의 것이 아니니
지금 하십시오.

친절한 말 한마디가 생각나거든
지금 하십시오,

내일은 당신의 것이 안 될지도 모릅니다.

사랑하는 사람이 언제나
곁에 있지는 않습니다.

사랑의 말이 있다면
지금 하십시오.

미소를 짓고 싶다면
지금 웃어 주십시오.

당신의 친구가 떠나기 전에
장미가 피고 가슴이 설레일 때
지금 당신의 미소를 주십시오.

불러야 할 노래가 있다면
지금 부르십시오.

당신의 해가 저물면
노래 부르기엔 너무나 늦습니다.

당신의 노래를 지금 부르십시오.

“I have read a certain book; when I finished it, I closed it, put it back on the shelf in my library— but there were certain words in that book which I cannot forget. They have penetrated so deeply into me that I cannot separate them from myself. Henceforth, I am no longer the one I was before I met them.”

-Andre Gide, quoted in Chicago Typewriter
