“To me blew me away” is Google Translate’s take on “넌 내게 반했어” – the title of a South Korean youth melodrama called (in English) Heartstrings. (The correct translation of 넌 내게 반했어 is actually “You’ve Fallen for Me.”)

Wikipedia’s entry for this TV series topped the list when I Google-searched “heartstrings” yesterday.

After you admire the heart in the stylized title, click the image to see the music video for “Because I Miss You” by Jung Yong Hwa – vocalist and guitarist of a band called The Stupid and lead actor in the series, where he plays a university student majoring in Western Music.

The deer-in-the-headlights kiss at 2:00 of the video is priceless!

Heart-spotting Contest Entry

Rosemary B. spotted a BBC News story about the giant pink neon heart that now adorns the European Parliament building in Brussels – a tribute to dissident playwright and Czech leader Václav Havel, who died a year ago (December 18, 2011).

The reason for the heart? Well, Havel used to put a heart under his signature (see below) as a representation of his motto:

“Truth and love must win over lies and hatred!”
