Mind empty… So empty… and only the presence of Her in a vacuum space where I am the Void surrounding her soul image.
No thoughts… Only feelings and breathing through her existence inside.
As time passes Her becomes more than I imagined inside my heart.
No corner and shadow of my soul remained that is not shrouded in her existence.
I am always wondering if her soul image is doing well and imploring my soul to watch over Her.
That is the game of destiny, setting us apart in our bodies but keeping Her closer through our souls.
But soon I will sit down next to my beloved friend Han River and listen to stories and memories of Her.
And I will see my soul image echoed next to her soul image in the mirror of its reflection… from the past lives.
And I will engrave in its waves my heart whispers for her soul image when is passing by to the river… To let Her know that my soul image is yearning to hug and look into the eyes of her soul image.
And I will be one with the Earth to kiss her feet with my existence while walking around under the sky of Hanguk…
And I will make a wish to be with Her forever in the first snow.
And I will greet her soul with hums in the wind of winter:
“괜찮아요, 내 사랑?! (Gwaenchanayo Nae Sarang?!): You alright, my Love?!”
The Han River or Hangang is a major river in South Korea and the fourth-longest river on the Korean peninsula after the Amnok (Yalu), Tuman (Tumen), and Nakdong rivers. The river begins as two smaller rivers in the eastern mountains of the Korean peninsula, which then converge near Seoul, the capital of the country.
The Han River and its surrounding area have played an important role in Korean history. The Three Kingdoms of Korea strove to take control of this land, where the river was used as a trade route to China (via the Yellow Sea). However, the river is no longer actively used for navigation, because its estuary is located at the borders of the two Koreas, barred for entrance by any civilian.

There are various names of Korea in use today, all derived from ancient kingdoms and dynasties. The modern English name “Korea” is an exonym derived from the name Goryeo, also spelt Koryŏ, and is used by both North Korea and South Korea in international contexts. In the Korean language, the two Koreas use different terms to refer to the nominally unified nation: Chosŏn (조선, 朝鮮) in North Korea and Hanguk (한국, 韓國) in South Korea. Ethnic Koreans living in China and Japan also use the term Chosŏn to refer to Korea.
Today, South Koreans use Hanguk (한국, 韓國) to refer to just South Korea or Korea as a whole, Namhan (남한, 南韓; “South Han”) for South Korea, and Bukhan (북한, 北韓; “North Han”) for North Korea. South Korea less formally refers to North Korea as Ibuk (이북, 以北; “The North”). South Koreans often refer to Korea as “Uri Nara” (우리 나라), meaning “our nation” or “our country”. In addition, the official name for the Republic of Korea in the Korean language is “Daehan Minguk” (대한민국, 大韓民國; which is usually translated as “The Republic of Korea”).

In South Korea, the first snow is not just a simple weather phenomenon for Koreans. The first snow in South Korea has its own cultural implications.
Actually, it’s a saying that if you confess to someone or being with someone during the first snowfall, you guys will stay together for a long time. Even if you are not with someone, the first snow just puts people in a good mood generally.
