C-Novel Review: 原来你还在这里 You Are Still Here (原来 Original) – 辛夷坞 (HE)

When I discover the C-Novel Translation site, Hui3r during my early day of reading C-Novel Translation, You Are Still Here (原来你还在这里) was one of the completed novel already available on the site that I started reading and managed to complete within the day itself.

You Are Still Here (原来你还在这里) is one of the earlier work of Xin Yi Wu (辛夷坞) that center around first love. The two leads have a vast different personalities that had to battle through a series of misunderstandings and challenges thrown at them. Would they able to overcome the barriers in their relationship? 

The synopsis of You Are Still Here (原来你还在这里) taken from SSB:-

Is there such a person in your heart? After he left, life goes on. The traces he left behind has been gradually erased by the passage of time. You rarely think of him and can live well without him. When caught off guard, he appears in your dream again and first expresses remorse. You have a victor smile on your face, wake up & weep. Su Yun Jin cannot forget Cheng Zheng. Similarly Cheng Zheng also cannot forget Su Yun Jin. During the peak of youth, this rash and juvenile boy first clumsily expressed his love to the shy girl. All along, they are playing a game of cat and mouse. She wanted him to let go of her but when he really let go, her pain is worse than anyone else.

Who said Cinderella is waiting for the glass slipper ? Even after finding a prince, still need to live an ordinary life not mentioned in the fairy tale. You have to suffer many earth shattering tortures to reach everlasting happiness. We met when we were too young, so beside love, we know nothing. So we lost each other. Then only, we know how to love better. As time goes by, after going around in circles, will that person still wait for you in the original place?

Su Yun Jin fell in love with her high school classmate, Cheng Zheng. He is also deeply in love with her. However, the difference in their family background and personalities caused the two love birds to part way with each other. After their separation, Yun Jin discovered that she is pregnant with Cheng Zheng’s baby. Because of her strong characteristic, Yu Jin did not inform Cheng Zheng about the child. A few years later, Yun Jin established a successful career and Cheng Zheng reappeared in her life at this point in time. Will their love blossom?

What I like about this novel is the rawness of the effort by the talented author, Xin Yi Wu (辛夷坞). You Are Still Here (原来你还在这里) may be one of her earlier debut work but reading it, one could feel the emotions that she had described so well in the novel. So good to the extend that I have re-read You Are Still Here (原来你还在这里) more than 4 times over the past year.

The translated version of You Are Still Here (原来你还在这里) is now available at You Are Still Here (原来你还在这里) Translation

Enjoy your read!
