Sea and Jewelry Is there a case you were taken and that made the  heart left behind? Is there a case that you killed a heart? How many times did you shed tears thinking of the person? Crying feeling is passing, and despair.... I know the best way is running away, but I can't. Because you have taken one only my heart. The people say  " Your are lucky, because you keep  thinking such sweet things," but still painful things  will not change. "Immorality" "Lost Love" "Betrayal" " Jealousy" "Innocent malice" I just love one person. Pain in my heart is also personal things, it is an informal documentary. It is not an event to shake society, it is not a socai problem.... It must be some small talkings in dramas or movies,  but I want to tell. It is one series representing tears my heart was left behind. About my experience and lots of stories with many men and women....
