That… is my answer.” – Joo Won

It’s now that I realize it, how beautiful a person he is. And therefore, how far away he is from me. He’ll disappear someday, too, like people do when they’re too beautiful.” – Ra-Im

But what hurts the most is that person doesn’t actually miss me like the way I do. It’s like that person has forgotten about me and is simply being happy alone. All you want to do is die, but you can’t die either… because you’re scared that you won’t see that person again.” – Seul

“Alice in Wonderland Syndrome. This is a mental illness. It is like looking through the wrong end of a pair of binoculars. It is as if you are living in a fantasy world of a fable.

“Do you need more miracles? There was already a miracle. A woman with no decent family background, no money, no good looks, is someone very special to someone who has everything.

“My marriage is a complicated business with many stakeholders. In the end, I’ll have to make a decision. Will I disappoint all those people and get you, or will I lose you and get a girl who will be an advantage for me in business? Is the first option what you want? Fine! Let’s say that I throw everything away and choose you. Get a house to live in and a bed. We’ll just sleep together and then wake up. But… how long do you think the happiness would last?
