Airen Tribute to Lee Seung Gi~ Fan Video to ‘Love Taught Me to Drink’

Credit: jejuslov

Note: at the end of the video, Han Hyo Joo tells Lee Seung Gi: Because you’re not the person who’s supposed to enter my life, I’m returning it to you. (Major OUCH!)

English lyrics:

You taught me so much right to the end
You showed me things I didn’t know about
Even when you abandoned me and left me
You seem to be still around me

You taught me love, made me understand happiness
You taught me about separation, made me understand tears
You made me understand things I didn’t want to know about

Because of you, I drank the alcohol I couldn’t before
Listening to the lyrics of songs that I have no interest in
Drinking because I want to forget
Missing you again when I drink
Why did you leave without teaching me the way to forget

You were so full of affection right to the end
You left so much behind for me
You left me crying, with our memories
You left me in pain, with hurt
You left me with an illness of the heart that I can’t cure

Because of you, I drank the alcohol I couldn’t before
Listening to the lyrics of songs that I have no interest in
Drinking because I want to forget
Missing you again when I drink
Why did you leave without teaching me the way to forget

[RAP Baek Chan]
I can feel myself ruining my body
(Yeah) I am loser
My face slowly gets clouded over
Tears well in my eyes again, and the feeling is spreading though my whole body
The chill is creeping right into my bones, please save me
You showed me the happiness that I didn’t need to know
Even though it’s a happiness I once lived without, I can’t do without it now
I don’t know what to do now that you’ve disappeared so suddenly
I miss you more than anything else

There isn’t a day that I’m sober
I can’t live without alcohol
I see your reflection in my glass, and my tears again, erase you away
Why did you leave without teaching me the way to forget
Why did you leave without teaching me the way to forget

YAAS Filming~ Occurred Today But Where Are All the Fanpics? *UPDATED w/5 clips @11:57pm KST*

Airens were very excited last night as many of them in dclsg were preparing to show up at Teherrano, a busy boulevard in downtown Gangnam this morning. Instead, I read reports of people seeing stuntmen filming a car chase scene but no sign of the main cast. A post in dclsg mentioned that they were also filming all the way up north of Gangnam, about an hour and a half away in the city of Songdo, Incheon. Supposedly, they were filming another car chase scene in front of the famous Convensia convention center, a chic looking building that I’ve been to several times for business conferences. Here is more information on the convention center: Convensia.

This a photo at Teherrano around 8 am this morning KST:

Another photo of Teherrano:

This fan’s note with his/her photo sounded slightly annoyed at the trouble he/she went through to see…nothing. The fan mentions going to the Yeoksam area but due to heavy construction in that neighborhood, he/she decided to head towards the Samseong-dong area. There, he/she discovered filming of a Korean drama or a movie. The fan mentioned seeing a familiar looking male actor but added in parentheses that he/she wasn’t 100% sure. Later comments by the photo say that it is an SBS drama, and upon further research, the male actor was Cha Seung Won.

[English] YAAS’ Go Ara’s Updates~ by STARCAST, written by Ara

Since we’ll be seeing more fanpics tomorrow with the filming of You Are All Surrounded, I thought I would share some news written by Go Ara herself. It has already been translated by Starcast into English and she mentions her role in the new drama with Lee Seung Gi.  On her script is written “Soo Sun”, the name of the female lead role that she plays. Here is the link: Go Ara
