People I know run from injustice and hurt others to protect themselves but you are different from the people I know.
A crush is not bad, it is painful.
~Shin Woo Hyun
Just say that it hurts when it hurts. Don’t lie.
Why are humans acting like that? They do what they don’t mean to.
~Lee Seul Bi
I seem to be becoming a monster but I can’t help it.
Leave when I let you. If not, I may hold you back.
~Hwang Sung Yeol
Love is to feel each other’s pain and even share each other’s pain.
~An angel who became human
Does love make your tears warm?
If you don’t wait, I will just have to wait for you to come back.
~Yang Tae Ho
I am sure it gets as warm as how much you love someone.
