Goodbye Is Just Another Word
That you feel our race is run …
Let’s just break it off my friend …
Even though I know that’s what you’ve heard
Just like forgive, forget and try again
Goodbye is just another word.
There’s a Chinese saying: “There is no banquet that does not end.” 天下無不散的筵席.
We’re bowing out and leaving the PSH arena.
PSH4U will cease operation at the end of March 2016.
The surprising thing is not that we’re calling it a day now but rather that we managed to hang on until now.
In August 2014 something catastrophic happened to my family (still ongoing). I should have left PSH4U then, but I didn’t. I struggled on because PSH was still struggling.
Now he is back with a Korean drama and an upcoming Korean movie and I needn’t worry about him anymore.
During these 4 1/2 years on PSH4U, H and I have been through heaven and hell. We’ve had our fun, and then some, but it’s been very draining on our mental, emotional, and physical resources since February 2013, until recently. Through sheer perseverance we managed to hold things together, even in the face of adversity (for PSH and for ourselves). If you’ve detected a certain weariness in our tone lately, that’s because we are really very tired.
I am very grateful to all our members, especially those who have been with us from the very beginning, as well as those who have recently joined us. I am sorry you discovered us too late. I’ll miss you all. I’ll miss our PSH4U family.
And I’ll miss PSH (even though I’ll still keep an eye on him) — such a fine young man and the best Korean actor I’ve ever seen. These few years we spent with him are times of ecstasy and agony. He has grown “up” (I hope), and I have grown old. I’ll remember the good times and forget about the bad (as I hope PSH will too.)
We’re keeping our website http://parksihoo4u.com (for sentimental reasons) but switching back to a shared server instead of a dedicated server from April 1, 2016. (You don’t want to know how much we’ve had to pay for webhosting every month.) If you’re a relatively new member, you may wish to read some of our old posts (some gems among them, believe me.)
And we are keeping our email@example.com e-mail address. If you wish to remain friends, please feel free to write us anytime. I promise I will reply to every e-mail (as I’ve always done.)
I’d like to leave you with a scene from my all-time favorite PSH drama (indeed all Korean dramas) – “Family Honor”.
This is Lee Kang Suk and He Dan Ah watching the sunrise and saying goodbye to one another (or at least they think it’s goodbye then.)
Thank you for being by my side.
The memories I made with you are like a short festival.
I’ll be sad when they’re over, but I’ll remember them.
Today is Easter Sunday when Jesus was resurrected from the dead. PSH was in limbo for three years and has arisen from the ashes like the legendary phoenix. There is no symbolic significance for PSH4U, however. We shall not be back …. except on PSH’s wedding day^^
So, this is our l-o-n-g goodbye, since we’re not fading into the sunset until March 31.
P.S. I’d like to say a special THANK YOU to Japanese fans who have been our website’s #1 client (in terms of hit rate) from Day 1 (as well as PSH’s staunchest supporters). あなたにとても感謝する!
P.P.S. We have some parting presents for PSH4U MEMBERS ONLY:
1. PSH 2015 birthday DVD (+ photobook)
2. Ise-Shima DVD (+ photobook + 2016 calendar)
3. “Scent” DVD (+ booklet + magazine)
– If you are interested, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE March 31, 2016 to pledge your continued support for PSH.
– If the demand is great, we’ll have to apply the 5loaves2fishes principle again and split up the DVD so more people can share.
– Priority will be given to active members and members who have been with us longer. Please indicate preference.
– Recipients will be notified by e-mail after April 1, 2016.
