Blog Creator’s Note
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
– Nelson Mandela
It’s done! And it’s all because of you, Chunsas, who have shared your stories, your thoughts and feelings about one man who, in one way or another, however unknowingly, has touched our lives, yes, even through the exabytes, and has become an inspiration and a beloved. My big thank you to all of you for allowing me to post your beautiful, funny, heartwarming, hear-wrenching stories, poems and random thoughts at Pages Bound By 6002.
To Yoochun, I truly hope you get to read these stories. There must be hundreds of thousands of Chunsas, or even millions, out there. Just look at MickyWorld. But these stories only came from a less-than-measly portion of that, twenty to be exact. I know it doesn’t matter that it’s only from twenty Chunsas. So, here are the hearts and minds of those twenty, laid bare for you to see. I’ll do my best to encourage more of them to just write it down, no matter how confusing the feelings get sometimes, or how difficult it is to describe these feelings, always beginning with “I love you because…” and ending with “I don’t really know why I love you. I just do.” For inspiring in me this unique feeling, only felt for you and will only be for you, I thank you from deep in my heart.
To the following Chunsas, whose love for Yoochun made it possible for our cyberpaths to cross: to YC Love: my guru, my Yoda – not in age and looks[!] – but in her wisdom about everything and knowledge about Park Yoochun; to Alyne6002: my personal Korean translator, for being such a sharp proofreader, a funny spazzing partner and a great dongsaeng friend; to Angella, for living up to her name (Chunsa Angella, a positive double whammy if you ask me) and using her wings and pretty much everything at her disposal to help her Unnie deliver this Chunsa love on print to the nearest possible place (and accessible to us fans) where Yoochun might pick it up and read it; to Feby, in whose hands I entrust Angella and Pages on print; to Beanie, for being such a cool bean and adviser; to Grandma of Four, the coolest grandma this side of the universe; to Mraly, for trusting your Unnie with your deepest thoughts and feelings, whether it’s Yoochun-related or not; to Lina, for encouraging little mousey to talk AND to tweet and calling me out when I’m in my little cave, inquiring about my health; to my crazy and funny dongsaengest Jojo, who could always make me laugh with her outrageous tweets, and to all the cool Chunsas I have “met” and made friends with because of Park Yoochun-ssi, gamsahamnida. 감사합니다
And lastly, to the owners of the photos I used in the blog and on this print, I urge you to accept my apologies for taking liberties in using your photos without your express permission, only relying on the goodness of your heart, in the spirit of a Chunsa asking another Chunsa for indulgence, I thank you most sincerely.
And my wish: May there be volume 2.
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you simply, without problems or pride:
I love you in this way because I don’t know any other way of loving.”
