Quotes Line from Drama Once Upon A Small Town Episode 5

I’ve been around you for your whole life.
Try to look at me from a different perspective.
Let’s start with that.
-Lee Sang Hyeon-


To me, you’re a friend, but also a woman.
Sometimes you’re a little sister, and sometimes a big sister.
I could even think of you as an aunt, cousin, and mom.
It would be great if you were my “special someone.”
But even if that doesn’t happen, you’re still my friend,
my neighbor, and my family.
So there’s no way we’ll stop seeing each other.
The awkward, uncomfortable phase will be
just a short moment compared to all the time we spent together.
And it’ll eventually pass.
-Lee Sang Hyeon-


Just stick to the basics.
You’re good at drawing boundaries.
-Yun Hyeong-


I wouldn’t want to cause any misunderstanding.
-Ahn Ja Young-


I’m not actually that nosy by nature.
I just have a lot of things to do as a police officer.
So I think you should see it as dedication to my duty
rather than an act of being nosy or attention-seeking.
-Ahn Ja Young-


It’s not healthy to seek reaffirmation of your self-worth
from constantly helping others.
-Han Ji Yul-
