  1. http://www.slist.kr/news/articleView.html?idxno=87361 Koo explained her art: Shapes of squares, circles, triangles, and outlines describe "her frame"--they represent her sense of order and balance. Inside the frame are freedom. If her "frame" restrains and blocks overflow and chaos, what is inside are her thoughts and habits. Fighting Sunnies and to Koo!!!

She really thought her heart stopped when she saw Koo again. Whenever she sees Koo in person, she just cannot speak and she gets so nervous. Space was full w people and even Koo mentioned that she did not realize so many people will come. She says Koo is like an angel and says I love you Koo. She also added that Koo answered questions sincerely and well. There was no time set aside that day for signing...but Koo mentioned that there will be a signing time in July. Sending best wishes for Koo's exhibition!!!!
  3. https://gall.dcinside.com/board/view/?id=guhyesun&no=140860&page=1 I hope the above link shows everything that DC KOO presented to Koo. DC-Koo gallery got together really quickly and with the wonderful and brilliant help of "Evergreen", delivered the flower along w cookies and teas for Koo's opening interview day. Very beautiful and elegant. Due to time constraint, PayPal account could not be opened therefore the international fans could not participate. However, I am so thankful to Korean dc-Koo gal for working together so quickly and so well.

The flower name is ?Amavilis? (sorry not time to look it up) The meaning behind the flower is "Happiness flies in and I love you". The color of the flower also gave a clean and elegant image and Evergreen felt that it fitted who Koo is and the feeling of the exhibition. She also bought organic cookies and herb teas and she herself delivered them to the gallery. She is also very thankful to dc members for making the event possible.
  4. Thank you @loveukoo for finding YT version. There are few articles on it as well. Let me summarize it. Koo says that her current art exhibition's title and motivation come from the death of her very first pet. For several weeks, not only her but her whole family mourned the loss. She became very sick and devastated that she even sought the help of the hospital. That is when she started to draw. (It seems Koo heals herself through her art whatever the medium.) She usually works late into the night or early dawn and often listened to the BBS radio station which focuses on teachings and ways of Buddhism. That became a piece of news and that is the news on the above YT. Koo says that she found peace and balance and release of sad obsession over her loss by listening to Buddhist monks while drawing. Teaching helped her to focus on tasks at hand and she regained the strength to better take care of her other pets. She wants to use the profit from the exhibition towards helping pets and animals. Very recently, just before the start of the exhibition, Koo's husband lost his maternal grandfather. I have a feeling that is why she postponed her own interview time for the exhibition. Sincere good wishes and hopes for Koo and her entire family. And, all the best for each and every Sunnies!!!!
  5. Sunnies!!! Thank you all for all your posts!!! Good to know she signed with HB Ent. And that they will represent her not only as an actress but also in all her activities. I hope that she gets paid for all her music that is played in many different variety shows. I heard that the Y-tube production for Koo was done by HB Ent as well. Sounds Great!!! Thanks all and good night!! So good to see our Koo thread so lively!!!
  6. I will try to translate. But, it is already Sunday and I have a lot to do. ONe of the bloggers looks like the Tenasia article that I translated already (the middle one). I think I have to wait until next week...work is piling up. Sorry. I also feel a bit uncomfortable as to how much to reveal about her book--whether that is allowed to do. Is that good for KOo? ONe of the bloggers revealed the pages of the book...????!!! I do want Koo to make a living w her works!!!!
  7. Sorry @loveukoo I don't think there is an English version of Koo's book. I do enjoy her writing very much. I read Tango, Peach Tree, Scenario Book w 2 stories(Marie's Story and Mystery Pink) and Tear Is Heart-Shaped. I am no expert, but her stories feel like her paintings--abstract and simple on the surface. But, there are depth and symbolism that make you think about them. The symbolism of death appears a lot in her books as well as very unlikely or hard to imagine personalities. But, I end up liking them all. I know I don't help us the international fans by saying this, but I really hope she writes more and more novels. Like most people, I love books that I can get totally absorbed. Such books are rare and great for my mental health! Author Koo is one of those authors!!! Koo HyeSun Fighting!!!!
  8. Hey Sunnies!! I just got the book by author Koo! Thank God it is Friday night!! I read it till the end-- could not put it down. I always love her writing style...easy, flowing and just so good. But the content is like her paintings and movies. It's hard not to think about it over and over. The more I think about it, wow! If anybody else is able to read it, love to hear what you think!!! It feels light and so cute and then it hits you. like a block of ice!! The main character is something else. She returns all the hurts right back!!.. Woah! Something cold and icy just cuts right through you!! I hope Author Koo writes more novels!! I cannot wait!!! I wish a lot of success with the gallery opening. DC-Koo gal is going to present her a basket of flowers for the day when Koo has an interview at the gallery on June 5th. DC-Koo had no time, so they could not open Paypal for international fans but I am very grateful to Dc-Koo fans for the gift for Koo. The gallery told DC-Koo fans that flower basket or small size plant pot is best for the gallery space. Fighting Koo!!!!
  9. found an article in Nate news portal: http://tenasia.hankyung.com/archives/1732319 연기뿐만 아니라 영화 연출, 회화 등 여러 분야에서 활발한 창작 활동을 펼치는 배우 구혜선이 신작 소설 ‘눈물은 하트 모양’을 29일 출간했다. On May 29th, GHS has published her new novel, Tear is Heart-Shaped. KHS has been consistently working on her creative projects through acting, directing, drawing/painting, composing and writing. 이 작품은 좀처럼 예상하기 힘든 성격의 여자 소주와 거부할 수 없는 매력에 끌려들어 가는 남자 상식의 사랑을 발랄한 문체로 담아냈다. This is a story of a man named Sangshik who could not help but fall for the charm of a strange and peculiar Soju. 경장편에 해당하며 로맨틱코미디 장르를 표방하는 만큼 문장 곳곳에 유머러스한 대화와 재치있는 전개가 웃음을 불러일으킨다. 농담 같던 인물들의 대화가 어느 순간 허를 찌르며 인간 본연의 내면과 마주하게 만들기도 한다. The story can be classified into the romantic comedy genre; humorous and witty dialogues pop up here and there evoking laughter and lightness. At the same time, seemingly harmless jokes suddenly turn piercingly real into the inner human nature. 이 작품에는 구혜선의 실제 연애담도 들어있다. 읽다 보면 독자는 서툴고 모자란 첫사랑을 상기하게 될 것이다. This book contains some of KHS's real dating experience. Readers will also reminisce the awkward and immature first love. 구혜선은 작가의 말에서 “지나보면 아무것도 아닌 그때의 사랑. 그때만큼은 심각했고 비굴했고 유치했고 그래서 더 ‘웃픈'(웃기면서도 슬픈) 이십 대의 연애. 이 소설을 읽는 모든 이가 내 어릴 적 미친 연애와 함께 즐겁길 바란다. 행복하길 바란다”고 썼다. KHS left this author's remark inside the book: "With time, it no longer feels like a big deal. Yet, in my 20's, it felt serious, painful and childish. That is why it seems funnier and sadder at the same time. I hope the readers just enjoy themselves while reading the story. I wish for your happiness." 김지원 기자 bella@tenasia.co.kr (Reporter Kim Jiwon of Tenasia.) <ⓒ “텐아시아” 무단전재 재배포금지>
  10. @izaku, thank you. it seems to be a some kind of contest...if you write your own memorable dating story, you get a free copy of Koo's new novel. It is sponsored by a wedding planning company. Second blog is sort of a book review. She thinks Soju is too strange and could not identify with her. She thinks Soju is too hard to have around. It is a very short book and made her wonder more about KHS herself.
  11. Sorry Sunnies,, I saw an epreview of Koo's new novel and tried to, at least, translate some of it,,, but could not continue. It was in yes24 sorry, I could not continue...

SoJu was really a strange female. I met her for the first time when a friend invited a few to a pub in winter.
  13. Sunnies, I just ordered through G market. their website is not very user-friendly, but finally, I was able to order. http://gsearch.gmarket.co.kr/Listview/Search?keyword=눈물은 하트모양 you may have to register. see if it works for you.
  14. I saw m.yes24.com posted at dc-koo. few fans posted that they ordered it through it. I am posting the title of the book and Koo's name in Korean for you all 눈물은 하트모양 구혜선 I tried to buy via yes24, somehow could not do it.
  15. I am not sure yet how to buy her book. I am looking into Gmarket but i dont think they have it yet. English version would be great for me too.
  16. https://m.blog.naver.com/PostView.nhn?blogId=sum-lab&logNo=221538179523&navType=tl AJH and KHS couple: romance level zero...he says it's like living in a temple. A couple that grew stronger on trust than on flutter of the heart. AhnGoo couple. Koo HyeSun. Naturally, Ahn JaeHyun's name comes up. Ahn JH and Koo HS are a couple. We once had a chance to peek into their sweet newlywed life together through tvN's program. A dominant wife, a romantic husband. Their biting yet sweet relationship aroused dreams of marriage for the singles and shared understanding beyond romance ideals to those who are already married. 2 years have passed since the program. Are they still sweet to each other? Who is Koo Hyesun the person in that relationship? Of course, part of GHS's identity is the marriage to AJH. However, she is also a woman constantly building herself as an artist with her endless creative works in art, music, writing, directing and more. She is a wife and much much more. Coincidentally, she is about to publish a novel and so I met her at a cafe in Seoul Mapo-gu Hapjung dong. I asked her about AJH, marriage and love. Q I hear you are releasing a novel. A scenario that I wrote before getting married is coming out as a book. Title of the book is "A tear is heart shaped." It is a story that I wrote about 7 years ago, a romantic comedy scenario. It comes out on 24th. Q A tear is heart-shaped. What kind of story is it? Story of marriage in it? Original title was "Soju's Sangshik". Heroine's name is Soju. Male lead character is Sangshik. Their names are opposite. Heroine is Soju who loves soju. The man is an ordinary man with extreme common sense. Sangshik meets Soju at a friend's engagement party and falls in love at first sight. It is a story of their relationship. I wrote it 7 years ago, so, it has no story of marriage. However, you may find a lot about Goo Hye Sun in her mid-20's. You can basically think of Soju as Goo Hyesun when she was in her mid-20's. Q What was GHS like in mid-20? In my early 20's, I dated with all of me. Love made me obsessive and all consuming. Breaking from such a relationship left me crushed and empty. After a relationship that nearly destroyed me, i realized that I needed to change. In my mid 20's, I no longer wanted to be all-in, but wanted to be tough. I tried hard not to be possessive. Of course, I worried about him since I loved him, but I allowed a lot of space and freedom. I believed that I must think of him as an individual and not my possesion. Ironically, the more I let him go, the more he became attached to me (smile). Q Is your husband the first reader of your book? What did he think of it? Several people already read it while it was still a scenario. Once it became a novel, my husband read it for the first time. People mentioned that characters conversations are peculiar. Because I talked so much about Soju with my husband that he did not have much of a reaction. Q Is your husband more like SangShik? No. Sangshik is an ordinary man, My husband is no ordinary. He is also special. Q In what way is he special? Ajh is like a white poster paper. He is amazingly talented in accepting people as they are. When I first met him, he was in a state of exhaustion from someon trying to restrict and change him. I told him that I am not yours and you are not mine.He said that made him feel relieved. I have a tendency to want to protect what is mine. My old boyfriends could not understand that part of me and even became angry with me. Ajh-ssi accepted me fully as I am. He accepted this peculiar me. Q When people think about AJH and GHS, they think about the Newlywed Diary. Are you both stil like that? No, we are not newlyweds. (smile) We are there and not there. When we are together, it feels like we are not there. But, when we are not together, we think about each other. That is our relationship. We are objects (?). Q What about fluttering hearts? Fluttering heart is important to AJH-ssi, but I do not like it. When you feel fluttering heart, life becomes exhausting. What was important to me while dating and when we married was sense of comfort. We are friends. We shared everything about our past relationships and married when we felt free and comfortable inside. Recently, AJH-ssi would say he wants to feel that flutter of heart. Then, I would say it is just the weather. It is because it is spring. Then we talk about if we are trying to polish the marriage too. Rather than fluttering of heart, we have trust in each other. In my 20's, I also played the push and pull in a relationship. By 30's, around the time I met AJH-ssi, I was tired of the unnecessary yet existing jealousy and push and pull that go on in a relationship. AJH-ssi's real self is kind, considerate and friendly. At first, I did not care for that aspect of AJH. Because he is so kind to opposite sex, I mistook him as a playboy. One day, he sensed that I did not care for that part of him, and he completely changed. All of a sudden, he hardly interacted with other women at work. I liked AJH because he did not cause or start unnecessary misunderstandings. I felt comfortable with him. Q How do you think trust develops? I feel that it comes from keeping promises well. When the other person speaks of what s/he does not like, I feel that it is important to listen well and try to change and adapt. I happen to be a person who has a list of likes and dislikes. In the beginning, AJH-ssi saw that part of me and thought negatively of me. However, only after the two people hear each other out about what is emotionally uncomfortable for the other person and help and protect each other, can trust also develop. I think it is also important to know the boundary of relationships. When I meet a new person, AJHssi will also become aware of the person. When he also meets a new face, he lets me know. We talk to each other about who is prety and who is cool. At times, AJH-ssi would talk about someone who is his style, but I would merely advise him to watch his behaviors and to watch his emotions. I feel that the time spent on the relationship is important. The time spent with a new person cannot be replaced. Newness also becomes familiar and comfortable. We talk about not becoming deluded and deceived by newness and freshness. Q What is marriage to GHS? It is about living together. Life style dose have to match somewhat. We must be able to accept each other's egoism. Timing is also important. I do believe that there is time for marriage. (smile) Q Do you think you changed due to marriage? AJH-ssi has become comfortable. But I have become anxious( up and down). Typically, I am calm, not so swayed by emotions. But at times, I find myself asking why am I so upset? Why am I so intolerant? AJH-ssi and I are different when it comes to moments when we feel pushed aside and/or when we feel free. AJH-ssi felt more pushed aside and I rarely felt that way. But, when he changed, I began to feel more pushed aside. For example, my husband likes to watch videos and TV with me. He wants to do things together. But, I prefer to do things by myself. I would tell him to use his own time. So, he started to go out with his friends and just spend his time more freely. Then, I started to feel bored. So, we came down with a rule. We don't have to call each other when we are working, but let's stay in touch at least once a day. We will set aside the time. Such things. Q What do you think is most important in marriage? The strength to accepting each other's privacy. You cannot hide anything in marriage. Everything that is you is exposed. Instead of as a man or a woman, it is important to accept each other as human beings and family member. We are animal after all. It is important. To me, what is ideal in marriage is that we are able to ask for toilet paper from the bathroom. We have to be comfortable. While living with pets, we are not going to throw them away because we don't like their smell. It is because we choose to live together. In some way, our romantic life is at the complete bottom. (smile) But, we have a joke based on trust. I would ask AJH-ssi with whom he would like to marry, he would say why marry again? let us just live as is. QHow do you divide up housework these days? I pretty much do the housework for now. If you look at our schedule, AJH-ssi is busy and I am not. IN the beginning, I did housework excessively, but, these days, I do as much I can do. I used to collect all garbage and even take it outside by myself. These days, I would collect the garbage and just leave it at the entrance and AJH-ssi takes them outside. I think we developed our own rules. We don't want to be stressed out by housework, so we don't tell each other what to do. QWhat is it like being a couple who are actors? Our work is all about the labor of emotions. We have to develop our characters and perfect them. They are related to our pride and confidence. When AJH-ssi is about to enter work, I do not ever vent about my needs and complaints to him. I don't want to ruin the process of his work at perfecting his role. I think about how he won't love me anymore if I ruin or cause a scratch while he is trying to perfect himself. It is the same with me. I do not touch this aspect which I consider absolute. Q If you hold back on your emotions, doesn't that cause problem in the relationship? Maybe because we have been together 3-4 years now. But feeling pushed aside is minimal. Maybe once or twice a year, we may talk about when we felt hurt by each other. There really isn't that many things that we consider are problems. Of course, we fought a lot more at the beginning of the marriage. But, that helped a lot. while fighting, we learned a lot about each other and we learned that we are two different people. But, fighting really waste a lot of energy and we both do not like the after effects of fighting either. We also realized that long conversations do not necessarily resolve feelings. I feel that we are capable of forgetting. If I felt hurt by AJH-ssi, my tendency is to turn the focus away from AJH-ssi. I do my work. I say to myself that I need to feed the pets and move away. AJH-ssi also automatically pretends to go to the bathroom or that he needs to go out to exercise. When we move past that point of hurt, we forget what it was. Q But couples have expectations. How can hurt feelings be minimal? It can work if I focus on my life. When I get busy, hurt feelings also go away. I think of it as my problem and not his problem. AJH-ssi does talk about feeling like living inside a temple. (laughter) My husband and I promised each other not to ruin or destroy each other's lives. Even if this moment ends suddenly, we can say, thanks for living with me until now. We must acknowledge each other and we also have to give up certain things. AJH-ssi wants to constantly work on himself and I support and cheer for him.I don't ever want him to give up on himself because of me. We both gave up something once we decided to marry. Marriage is in a way a state of lost profit. Because I married, a limitation occurred in my acting career. Same is true for AJH-ssi. We have both lost. But we also became a team. As one team, there are pros. Because my husband is working, I can rest. If I work, my husband can have his free time. I support and hope this team will roll on well and the only thing I have to do is focus on my life. QHow does GHS see love? In the past, I thought love is about understanding everything. I thought love is like mother's love--all understanding and all consideration. Now, I do not believe in love. For me, I just believe in myself. I don't know love. Because I believe in myself, I think it will be OK. I don't trust happiness either. The moment I feel happy, misfortune also come at the same time. I try not to be enslaved by emotions. If I get a feeling, I try simultaneously to get the opposite feeling as well. I consciously try to maintain middle ground/ equilibrium. I tend to focus on actions instead of feelings. I used to be tardy and late to appointments. So, I remind myself that I tend to be late. So I tell myself to move one hour early and arrive at the appointment early. Q YOu are continuously working. Where do you get the inspiration? I get it by loving. While I raise my pets. In my twenty's relationship was everything. Now, I reminisce those days since they are all in the past. UNlike 20's, I have new type of emotions. I make quicker judgments about myself and I have developed a certain pattern of lifestyle. Since controlling the daily life pattern is possible, I focus on the inner self. These days I am analyzing into my past anger as well as any complex, sense of inferiority, etc. It really helps me to be more understanding of others. Q How do you want to remain as a couple? We talk about not wanting to be a show-window couple. Of course, the public is important. But, our feeling is that marriage more of two people's problem. We promised each other not to live an artificial or pretend life just for the public. Marriage is not a business and ours is not. Actually, when we decided to do the Newlywed Diary, I did think that some people may think of our relationship more as business. I did have a problem analyzing that. But, now, I know that I cannot have a baby or carry out a perfect marriage for the sake of the public.
  17. Sorry Sunnies,,, I have been tired these days and did not get to translate her new episode of Pet Diary. I will defintely do it before the week is out. Sorry again.
  18. If you find the interview on her new book, let me know. I don't see it anywhere. Maybe it will appear when the book actually comes out. I am waiting. Thanks a lot.
  19. Thanks @izaku. (The first time I saw KHS) my eyes turned to all hearts. All of a sudden, I was just by her side. Yuboy-ya, you are pretty even if you do nothing. What is strange and awkward is when we don't say I love you to each other daily. I just liked/loved this person so much that I wanted to start marriage as soon as possible. I have told her that if I lived as AJH so far, I want to live as her husband from now on. Even if we have a baby, I feel that I will say I love my wife more than I love my baby. It feels so good that I don't know how to explain it. Marrying you is my birthday present. The love story that I want starts from marriage.
  20. Thank you @izaku I wonder what it is. Maybe AJH is also coming out w a publication? A "romantic man" is a public enemy for all men around the world. AJH's a collection of short literary or philosophical extracts.
  21. WOW!! @izaku! You are going to the gallery? Hope you meet Koo!! I hope you will be able to share your feedback. I am so excited for you!!!
  22. Thank you for the news @loveukoo After reading from here, I got curious. There seems to be no news at dc-Koo gal. then I read an article from naver. An announcement from Partners Park that Koo and PP decided not to re-contract. There is no infor as to why. But her contract ends at the end of May. Partners Park wishes her well. that is it. I did not hear anything about her book officially. I am sure dc-koo gal is not going to say anything until things are truly official and they are not going to say or do anything that could turn into idle gossip or speculations. they are appreciatively and extremely protective of Koo. Thanks.
  23. I did some translation of her first epi. I use RissaBallen to post some translation. I dont know how to put the translation into the YT---I am not technical. I am curious as to what ointment she uses before she goes to bed and what sun tan lotions she uses. Could not get the names off ot them. If you guys can see it, hope you can post it. I hear you Wildcherry! But, I think I understand her anxiety about returning to acting. She gets an army of critics and haters. As much as I love to see her act, I can wait. I hope she can return in real small roles,,even as a one time guest or something.I love that she is so visible with so much that she does. Love it. Have a good day Sunnies!!! Have a Fighting day!!!
  24. I also saw the show Talk Nomad when Koo was their first guest. She mentioned that she gave the book to her husband. That is what I remember.
  25. I am frequently visiting DC-Koo to see if there are any more posting about the seminar.. "A life healed through art"...I guess Koo referred to her own life. Art for her is not just drawing but also composing, writing and making movies. After all they are all art. She has been saying that all along. She freed herself from constraints that she may have built, through art. I really wish I were there. The seminar post also reminds me of what Koo said in a variety show: after Blood ended with low rating, she encouraged her husband with a book, a title that has a similar theme...no matter what, continue to live fully and courageously and never mind others' criticisms. And she gave that same book as a gift to one of the hosts who just went through a divorce. She is an art herself.
