Picasso Painting Seen in Secret Garden

Picasso Painting Seen in Secret Garden

In episode 17 of Secret Garden, Gil La Im and Yoon Seul go to the Picasso and Modern Art. They stand in front of Picasso’s Woman in a Green Hat (1947) and La Im talks about the lifestyle of Joo Won and Yoon Seul. She says that in their lives they have many things to display but in her life she has to hide them as a stunt woman. She says that they’re so different.

Although Picasso’s painting was mainly used to enter the conversation of the two women, this work of Picasso caught my attention.

Secret Garden OST: I Can’t

“I Can’t” by Mi

Even if I remove my makeup, I can't do it without tears anymore
Even if the makeup flows down, I'm used to that

Even if I get a call, I can't look at it
Even if I close my eyes, I can't think of anything except your face

I can't even eat because I might think of you
Because I might not be able to digest after you left
Even today I live with tears

I can't listen to the music because it might be a story of you and me
Because they might be like us, I can't do anything
I can't live alone without you

Now I even pick up the phone thinking it might be you
Even though I know it's not you, I wish it was you

Please stop, you are all I have
What am I going to do, I can't do anything alone

I can't even eat because I might think of you
Because I might not be able to digest after you left
Even today I live with tears

I can't listen to the music because it might be a story of you and me
Because they might be like us, I can't do anything
I can't live alone without you

I can't, I can't, I need your love

What's the point of living alone, I'm your girl
I can't do anything without you, I know only you
I can't do anything without you
I can't even die because you might return
I can't do anything without you, I can't live alone without you

“I Can’t” by 4MEN

Even if I eat I can't swallow without tears anymore
Even if I force myself to eat, I still feel empty inside
Even if I listen to music I can't hum along
Even if I watch a movie, I don't remember what I saw
I can't even eat because I might think of you

Because I might not be able to digest after you left
Even today I live with tears
I can't even get on the bus because someone might swear at me
I can't do anything because someone might make fun of me crying
I can't live alone without you

Now I can't drink without tears
No matter how many times I empty it, I think of only you
What's the point of living when you're not next to me
What am I going to do, I can't do anything alone

Even if I eat I can't swallow without tears anymore
Because I might not be able to digest after you left
Even today I live with tears
I can't even get on the bus because someone might swear at me
I can't do anything because someone might make fun of me crying
I can't live without you

I can't even smile without you
I can't even walk without you
I can't do anything

I need your love
What's the point of living alone, you know better
I can't do anything without you
Because I know only you, I can't even eat without you

I can't even die because you might return
I can't do anything because you might come and look for me
Today, tomorrow I want only you

Secret Garden OST – You Are My Spring

Secret Garden OST Part 4

“You Are My Spring” by Sung Si Kyung

How did I notice you
How did I walk toward you

I can't even leave now
Even if I leave you behind and walk
The only thing I see is your image

Those harsh words that you said before
If we didn't meet each other
Would it have been less hard
You are...

You're crying, you're baring with it
You lift your head, you smile painfully
Your glowing smile spreads across the entire world

I miss you, I want to hug you
I want to be next to you even if it hurts
I want to fall asleep next to you

You stepped backwards from the start
Again I thought about the parting from the start

Even if I want you
Those things I could not look away
The cold world, the trivial calculations

No matter how careful I try to be
Even if I pretend it isn't and push it away
I like you already

I miss you, I am running toward you
I knock, you are surprised and smile
Circular smile touches the entire world 

Don't cry, don't leave
Stay here next to me
You are my warm Spring

In front of my undecided heart
Even still I can not stop it
I hug you to chase away your fears
Until it's comfortable in my arms

You're crying, you're baring with it
You lift your head, you smile painfully
Your glowing smile spreads across the entire world

Don't cry, don't leave
Stay here next to me now
You are my warm Spring

Just as we met
You are my warm Spring

Secret Garden OST – Only Scars

“Only Scars” by BOIS

I turned around many times already
I laughed like it was nothing
Even if I lied to my heart without words
Are you wandering because you don't know my heart

Suddenly I'm afraid, saying I love you
They're not words I'm used to saying
With hardened lips, I love you, I love you
I am shouting those words on your back

Because we breathe the same air
It would be too much to ask for more
As love keeps growing without knowing
Only scars are coming back

Even though I'm hurt, I'll be here
I can only smile when I'm next to you
Can't be happy, can't be changed
You're the one I chose

My bruised heart is full of scars
When I look back, there are only tears
I can't see because you can't find me
Even my love hides right away

Because we can breathe the same air
It would be too much to ask for more
As love keeps growing without knowing
Only scars are coming back

Even though I'm hurt, I'll be here
I can only smile when I'm next to you
Can't be happy, can't be changed
You're the one I chose

Trying hard to hide my tears
Are you passing by
I turned around without telling you
Even today I'm still there

Filling my heart with tears
I put those words in my heart
I pass by like it was nothing
And then I beat my chest

Can't be happy, can't be changed
You're the one I chose

Secret Garden OST: Reason

Secret Garden OST

“Reason” by 4MEN

You don't know who I am
You don't know anything
You'll know me when you love someone
You can't be me
We can't change our hearts
You'll know my heart when you start to love

For the first time I want to 
Keep safe
You don't know that kind of feeling

You can lean against me, I know it's been really hard
You waited a really long time
Because you came so far, it took a long time, right
It's not just a coincidence, right
My heart knew you first
And says it's been waiting

Love changes many things
It didn't seem like it would change anything
But it's changed even my little habits

I wish you're my last
The person I wish to be with
I hope it's you

You can lean against me, I know it's been really hard
You waited a really long time
Because you came so far, it's been a long walk, right
It's not just a coincidence, right
My heart knew you first
And says it's been waiting
It's been love for a long time

I love you
I will shout to the world
Now I will take care of you
Even though my body has changed, my heart is here
My heart knew you first

Actress Ha Ji Won Expresses Her Thoughts About Coming Back to a Drama

Secret Garden Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won

Actress Ha Ji Won expressed her thoughts about coming back to a drama after a four years gap. She told the media that she had difficulties in acting like a man’s soul is coming into her body at the press conference of Secret Garden, new SBS weekend drama.

She said, “The plot about switching the soul between a man and a woman is very interesting.” She also said, “Because Hyun Bin has to act like a man with a woman’s soul, we helped each other by copying each other.” She said, “I wanted to challenge myself as a different character. It is a stunt woman this time and it is very hard but it is fun.”

Ha Ji Won and Hyun Bin had appeared together in the film “The Tall Man”. But because Hyun Bin was an imaginary character of Ha Ji Won in that film, this is their first time of acting together. She said, “Even though it is our first time acting together, Hyun Bin is very nice and easy going and I think we could make a good team.”

And That’s How You Milk The Light Out of Your Stars

Countdown commences for the premiere of SBS’s drama Secret Garden. Two more weeks to go and everyone is busy- shooting scenes, post-editing takes, leaking set stills, and finalizing foreign distribution rights. Taking a copy from a copy of a copy out of a page of other A-List filled cast dramas, such as Fugitive: Plan B, this upcoming drama is also trying to sell to as many foreign markets as possible on the strength of its starry cast, lead by Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won, before its premiere.

Sealed deals include Hong Kong and the Philippines market. Pending markets of interests are the usual suspects- Japan, China, Singapore, Malaysia, and Vietnam.

Filling out the cast is Yoon Sang Hyun, Philip Lee, and Kim Sa Rang. Secret Garden takes over Life is Beautiful‘s weekend timeslots starting November 13.

Christmas Came Early this Year

SBS, the network that keeps on giving. It is certainly on a roll this holiday season. Great for them, but subjectively and selfishly, even better for viewers.  

Daemul 대물(2010), ruling Wednesday-Thursday night with its tight storytelling and superb acting is a great start for SBS this season. Meanwhile, SBS’s marketing department continues to bait audience for the upcoming Jung Woo Sung’s small screen return spy thriller Athena: Goddess of War 아테나 : 전쟁의 여신(2010). Sandwiched between the solemnity of Daemul and adrenaline rush of Athena, SBS has found the perfect genre to transition the audience through this season- fantasy comedy. After all, tis the season of believing in a robust man dressed head to toe in a red and fur suit sliding down unsecured chimneys delivering elf-made toys so what’s in store is not too far from the magical mood of the holiday. With comparatively little leaks and only recently established teaser is Secret Garden 시크릿 가든 (2010), SBS’s major November debut starring Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won.

After the serious political leanings of Daemul, a good laugh over an audacious fantastical setup with plenty of sweetened quirky romance much like a cup of bacon hot chocolate (you haven’t tried that?!) to relax, reboot, and ready us for the ammo-heavy, thinking-light mayhem of international good guy bad guy chase fest that is Athena: Goddess of War is just what the drama psychologist calls for.

Last seen in his critically acclaimed performance in Friends, Our Legend 친구, 우리들의 전설(2009), displaying unexpected depth, tortured spirit, and complexity is Hyun Bin, who in Secret Garden tackles a no less challenging role playing a cold, introspective business man who has his world pulled out from him when he switches soul with a woman, played by recent box office darling Ha Ji Won.

Ha Ji Won’s character is a stunt woman aspiring to be an action director whose initial encounters with Hyun Bin are animosity-ridden and unpleasant.  It would make perfect sense that these two should get the end of the venom they spout since track record indicates the Universe just has the darnest sense of humor and panache for irony.

Soul-switching plotlines are usually moral lesson devices. Those involved always learn some valuable lessons through their time walking in each other’s shoes, quite literally. Nothing less can be in store for this photogenic pair. When the premise is already so silly, suspension of disbelieve is already a given, so no-holds-bar on the laughs is expected.

Secret Garden will air on November 13 as SBS’s weekend drama.
