    The Hwang Jin Yi saga reminds me of my darling Ju-young Jeong, from Jeonju, and the love we have for eachother.

    I’m Australian, she left Australia to go back home. We broke up. But I still love her, and I still want to be with her. I can’t live without her.

    The drama will always have a special place in my sad heart.

    I miss you Ju-young 🙁
