Inside a café
Yu Jin writes in the letter :
Joon Sang, we have not met for a long time. Today I have a date with friends in this café, aroma coffee and sweet macaroon, this shop is very famous.
How are you doing lately? Any changes? Have you taken proper meals? Is it unbearable always being on your own? Are you feeling lonely? Stuff I wish to ask you is as high like a mountain, I can’t help but keep worrying about you.
Today, I am thinking of you. Do you remember our promise? The two of us, shall remember all those good times we spent together, till death and never to be forgotten. No matter how trivial things were, I won’t want to forget, thus I keep thinking of those little things, etched deep into my heart. Those memories are mine.
You ever said, you wish me happiness. Then, now that I am writing to you, every moment when I think of you, this is the happiest time of my day. Can you forgive me? Even though you can’t receive these letters, but talking to you in this way, can clam me down, me in this way, you must forgive me.
Well, see you tomorrow.
(New York, at Joon Sang’s home, Joon Sang is in deep thoughts)
(Arc de Triomphe in the rain)
Yu Jin : Joon Sang, are you watching the sky? You must become my Polaris, you promised me before.
(Early morning, at Joon Sang’s home)
Joon Sang (talking alone) : It’s a new day. Every night, I am searching for Polaris in the sky, you can see it, right? Not sure when is the time even little happiness like this will be taken away from my hand. No matter how time passes, how things evolve, I will never forget, even I am lost in the dark, your Polaris will remain in the same place.
(Early morning, at Yu Jin’s hostel)
Yu Jin : First snow? It’s the first snow …
