Shi Won: "An age where you feel like you could love anyone,
                  where you put everything on the line for the smallest of things.
                      Eighteen. Adults say that it’s an age where we laugh if a leaf tumbles by.
                             But back then, we were more serious than any adult, more intense, and had our strength tested.
                                   1997. That was how our eighteen was beginning."

                                          Yoon Jae: "When you like someone, you have eyes for her in the sides and the back of your head.
                      And that if you don’t knock, there will be no answer.
                            Standing in place will not get you what you want.
                               There’s no such thing as fair play anymore."

    Yoon Jae: "Go Stop, a game where you have to match the same shapes to get points.
                        There was a time when we struggled to be the same.
                             But in one moment, we began to be different.
                                That we were becoming different types of people
                                   — why was that so hard to acknowledge back then?
                                     People are all different; that’s the law of the universe,
                                                                                          the law of human growth.
                                        We were maturing into different people,
                                            and having to accept those differences meant
                                   we were faced with yet another consequence of growing up."

Yoon Jae: "Bumping into someone on the street,                                              
                    reaching for the same book at the library,
                       or running under someone’s umbrella…
                          I thought that falling in love would be special.
                               I couldn’t imagine…
                                         that I’d fall because of something like this. Spring of 1996.
                                               My first love began that suddenly."



Yoon Jae: "This life that might leap anywhere — there’s no use avoiding or ignoring it.
There’s just facing it and getting beaten to a bloody pulp.
But at times life can surprise us with gifts that make our hearts flutter.
And if we endure sadness, we are rewarded with happiness."

Tae Woong: "You have to be content with a dream that’s close.
                       If you chase after one that’s far away, your heart will hurt and your insides will burn.
                          A futile passion only leaves heartache.
                            That’s why life’s stupidest thing is a one-sided love.
                              But the reason that stupid one-sided love is worth trying is…
                                that passion can sometimes make miracles happen…
                                   sometimes go the long way around to help you fulfill a dream…
                                      and even if it doesn’t allow you to realize that dream, it allows you to linger near it and find happiness."

Yoon Jae: "They say that people are born with a red string that they can’t see,
                      tied to their pinky fingers,
                         and the end is tied to the one you’re fated to be with.
                           But the thread is twisted this way and that,
                              making it hard to find the other end."


Shi Won: "There are relationships of differing levels of difficulty.
                    To me, Yoon-jae was the easiest of them,
                         to explain or to maintain: that of childhood playmates.
                               But on this day, contrary to everything I knew, I discovered…
                                   that there might be the possibility
                           that we’d be the most difficult kind of relationship in the world.
                               The relationship with the highest level of difficulty:
                                                               that of a man and a woman."

Yoon Jae: "Each expecting different things,
                   each looking at different places, each dreaming different dreams…
                      everything that happens between one man and one woman,
                          is just continuous love and war.
         You sulk, you pacify, you fight, you make up, you hurt, you embrace.
                A relationship like a manic-depressive patient who can’t make up his mind.
  But the hardest thing about the relationship between a man and a woman is the timing
            — if the love doesn’t begin at the same time, it’s unlikely to ever begin at all."

Joon Hee: "The reason I like you? Because you’re that person.

                     Because you’re you.
                        Is there another reason besides that one?
                            I’d rather know the reason if there was one.
                              Then I could find a way to not like you.
                    If I can’t avoid it,
                               then there’s only one thing I want:
                                           to remain by your side, unchanged, for long time.
                                                         Here’s to our love, that chills our hearts."

   Hak Chan: "The one benefit to that top-degree-of-difficulty relationship between a man and a woman is…
                           one word can overturn its mood at any time."

Shi Won: "My body remembered my ’90s.
                                           The moment I saw the person I had once been crazy about,
                             I immediately returned to that ’90s fangirl,
                                 and my ’90s, which I thought were over,
                  began all over again…"

Yoon Jae: "A person’s heart can’t be turned on and off like a switch.
Once it’s turned on… it won’t turn off."


Yoon Jae: "First love is reckless.
Without calculating, it throws everything in with pure passion, and inevitably fails.
But that’s why it’s dramatic
 — the reckless tales wrapped up in experiences or feelings that you can never have again."

Yoon Jae: "Succeeding at first love is nice too.
                    There’s comfort that’s even better than your favorite sweater,
                        but also an excitement that
                           you can find when you’re tired of that comfort.

                             As childhood playmates, as first loves,
                                as lovers, and as husband and wife,

                                   we live through the same times,
                                     share the same memories, and grow old together.

                                            A familiar excitement. It’s nice."
