Since Never Gone has been super hot for a while now, I’ve decided to translate one of the videos on YouTube that actually talks about the whole plot with full scenes in 11 minutes. I actually discovered this video a little recently, but it was created by a YouTube talkshow that just kinda does drama recaps and movie recaps in 10 minutes (more or less). *False alarm* last time when I sent you guys the full movie link (^_^|||)
I’ve lost my motivation for subbing longer videos since after Legend of Chusen because the 19 minute trailer of subtitles was so time consuming and I cannot do that again :P Anyways, I will not be embedding my subtitles in the video and I will also not be putting the times down next to each subtitle. You can rant about my lack of technology skills because I really do know that I don’t have the talent😛
To understand more about how”poor-inefficient”me will be organizing my subtitles, read below:
New Method of Formatting Subtitles
First off, for your information there are subtitles underneath all Chinese videos like
If the subtitles underneath the Chinese video show these subtitles under a particular scene
(at time frame 3:00) 我爱你
(at time frame 3:01) 但是我必须离开你 。
Then, I will translate it like:
I love you
but I must leave you.
3:00/3:01 I love you but I must leave you
I will leave out the timings because the subtitles will appear in chronological order anyways…each new line of translated subtitles will indicate that a new line of Chinese subtitles has appeared and when the Chinese subtitles pause, I will also indicate this by leaving a gap between the translated subtitles so as to transition into the next scene.
This is just so that you can follow along with the video provided. If you don’t understand what I tried to explain above, comment below on what you don’t understand (be specific) and I will try to help. If this method doesn’t work out, in the future I will try to be more motivated and actually put the times next to the subtitles😛
As I mentioned above, the creators of the video I am about to share with you is a talkshow that also summarizes other Chinese dramas and movies. Here is the link to their channel for people who understand Chinese.
Wow I really love love love the image that the creator of the video made. Anyways…on to the subtitles.
0.22 Their story begins with the summer sun and ends with the summer sun
Now beginning from 0.29:
The story must begin
from a girl from a small town.
She is SU YUN JIN (If I put something in all caps, that means that it appears like the image I have next to SU YUN JIN)
Bringing with her, all of her parents’ hopes
in a home that has love and everything else
she goes to
enter the high school in the more urban city in an unfamiliar environment,
But her bad grades,
and her father’s illness
increase her stress and pressure
making her very depressed.
One night on her sophomore year,
the Su Yun Jin who decides to go into the Language and Cultural classes
bumps into a stranger in the hallway.
Because of one sentence of the other person’s mockery
“Only failing girls and girls who are bad at their books
will choose Language classes.”
she looks back at those people hatefully, and
Su Yun Jin, decides to choose the Sciences.
And it is this choice
that brings her an earth-shattering
heart wrenching romance
1.00 A NEW SCHOOL YEAR
Going into Junior Year
the classes are assigning seats
and Su Yun Jin sits in front of a wealthy boy.
And he is
Cheng Zheng isn’t only pretty good looking
but his grades are also exceptional.
He is the Knight in Shining Armor of the whole school.
The people by his side
are as exceptional as him.
The people close to him include
the class flower (the prettiest, most popular girl)
and the one worth hitting
is a part of the wealthy class
ZHOU ZI YI.
Compared to this,
Yun Jin isn’t only an introvert,
her only friend is one from her dorm
MO YU HUA.
someone bullies Yun Jin.
Yun Jin then becomes Cheng Zheng’s interest and delight.
Cheng Zheng, who sits in the last row
even if he has things to do, he will always poke Yun Jin’s back.
But everytime Yun Jin does something big,
Cheng Zheng will criticize her.
Before the final,
Cheng Zheng puts his foot underneath Yun Jin’s chair again.
Yun Jin lifts the chair
and fiercely stamps on his foot.
And it is in these interactions that the two become huge rivals in the classroom.
1:41 THE PAD INCIDENT
The final is looming overhead
and it’s not like no one knows of how Su Yun Jin is doing.
At this time,
the exasperated Cheng Zheng
offers some makeup tutoring for her
which helps her grade.
And their relationship now has a kind twist.
After an argument at the sports field
That night there was self-studying
Yun Jin suddenly felt
she had reached that day of every month (menstrual cycle… guys)
So after the break
Yun Jin takes a pad and sticks it in a book
and rushes out.
She hasn’t walked far
before Cheng Zheng
snatches the book out of her hands.
Yun Jin tries to grab her book, panicked,
and tries to pull it down
when the pad falls from the book.
The long sufferings/mockeries that she’s experienced from school
and her uneasiness at her father’s illness
brings her to tears.
Yun Jin grabs the pad
and fiercely throws it at Cheng Zheng’s face
rushing out of the classroom.
Cheng Zheng chases after her
and finally catches up on the dormitory path
to Su Yun Jin.
But when he grabs the other person
he is startled by the tears on Su Yun Jin’s face.
And Cheng Zheng always wonders from then to now
why he is infatuated with this girl
but before his brain can come up with the answer
his body has already begun its actions
leaning towards what he believes is right
and under this guise, Cheng Zheng
began his pursuit
in the hallways of when the two were sophomores.
Not long afterwards,
Su Yun Jin’s father dies.
As of now, she only wants to get a good grade
to make it up to her father.
Facing Cheng Zheng’s confession of love,
she says that she will consider it after the Gao Kao (Chinese SAT)
and Cheng Zheng doesn’t bother her anymore.
2:54 CONFESSION WITH A KISS
The crucial period
of the Gao Kao has ended
and he has always been waiting for the female lead’s answer.
Cheng Zheng hopes
that Su Yun Jin will go to Beijing with him.
In the darkness of the night,
the girl kisses the boy.
And this kiss
is a new beginning for the boy,
but for the girl
this is the end.
3:11 COLLEGE LOVE
After the college results,
Cheng Zheng gets into Jin Hua without much effort
but Su Yun Jin chose
a small college in the south, 18000 km away from Beijing.
brings a new beginning away from the silliness in high school.
Yun Jin slowly begins to be more aware of herself,
and while volunteering,
she is confronted by an exceptional senior classmate
who begins to talk with her,
and this person is
Shen Ju An.
After a short time, May 1st comes
and Yun Jin prepares to go with Shen Ju An
on a fun trip out of town.
But Cheng Zheng,
The three people can only go together to go to the temple.
they all make their individual wishes
on the Temple Book.
When Shen Ju An goes to buy water,
Cheng Zheng suddenly hugs Yun Jin and says
‘I used to try to forget you
but I really can’t do it.’
However, Yun Jin’s conflict
causes Cheng Zheng to kiss her aggressively.
The boy only wants the girl to know his pain
but the girl
only feels the boy’s clingyness.
After they walk out of the temple,
Cheng Zheng treats the two people to a meal.
And the angry Cheng Zheng
makes Su Yun Jin drunk
and asks Shen Ju An
if he only found his new job from knowing Zhang Yue
Early morning the next day,
Su Yun Jin, who wakes up in the dormitory
quickly receives Shen Ju An’s
news that he wants to breakup.
The mad Yun Jin
goes to Cheng Zheng’s house
but is only pressed down on the couch by Cheng Zheng
and the passionate Cheng Zheng
who ate Yun Jin’s tofu
tells her that the real reason why Shen Ju An asked for a breakup
was because the drunk Yun Jin
kept yelling one name
And it is like this
that the disappeared love
collide with Yun Jin’s brightness in sophomore year.
It’s the break now
and her mom brings up remarriage
and Yun Jin has also told the truth to Cheng Zheng.
She confesses that she likes Cheng Zheng
but she loves herself more.
She’s afraid that after she pays everything,
she will lose everything.
So she is afraid to be with Cheng Zheng.
Yun Jin’s words pain Cheng Zheng tremendously.
Thus, in the later year,
the two people don’t meet again.
4.40 THEIR LOVE IS DEFINITE AND PUT IN PLACE
The light passes
and in the blink of an eye it’s springtime of senior year.
And a disease
spreads throughout the country.
Yun Jin’s neighborhood
is set to be the region hit more heavily,
and is quarantined.
The students can only use their phone
to contact the outside world.
She sees her dormmates receiving calls continuously
and Yun Jin only then realizes how pitiful she is.
No one cares about her.
And she doesn’t know who she cares about.
Like she is standing on a lone island
and forgotten by everyone.
So the only thing she can do
is wait forever.
And at the moment when Yun Jin is about to give up all hope
a phone call comes.
She thought it was her mother
but heard a voice she even dreams of in her sleep
On this lonely island,
Su Yun Jin finally waits long enough
for her floating salvation
for her lifesaver.
The second day when Cheng Zheng appears before her eyes,
Yun Jin feels very touched
that in the national epidemic
someone comes so far for her
and only asks her one sentence of
‘Yesterday, why did you cry?’
he hasn’t come over for too long
before Yun Jin finds
Cheng Zheng has a fever.
In this moment,
she finally understands
how scary it will be to lose him.
Their fights before
and the distance between them (in both status and distance) doesn’t matter anymore.
The hospital says that Cheng Zheng doesn’t have anything major
and after this life and death trial,
the two are finally sure of their love relationship.
And what happens later happens like it should.
The following night
under Cheng Zheng’s red face,
the two people part with their 20 years of virginity,
and give their complete selves to the other person.
5.57 SAME BED, SAME DREAM
Graduation quickly comes,
to live in the same city, Cheng Zheng
lets go of a great job opportunity
and stays in Yun Jin’s current city.
The two people begin
a dreamlike beautiful life,
but the happy moments are always short.
a trial comes near.
In a phone call, Yun Jin finds out that
her mom has a disease.
For her treatment,
her husband who works at Cheng Zheng’s company
used some public funds
and owes a huge amount.
The burdened Yun Jin
can only borrow money.
She can only go
request some money from her ex-boyfriend, Shen Ju An.
Right when they are living peacefully,
after Cheng Zheng finds out,
he is hurt and goes to vent his anger.
He finds Shen Ju An and creates a huge commotion
about the borrowed money.
But the moment he faces that person,
all his emotions come tumbling out.
With these new developments,
Yun Jin gains more responsibility from her superior,
and work is busier than ever.
She always is on overtime
and even gets drunk.
This makes Cheng Zheng very unsatisfied.
In his imagination,
he has always hoped that Yun Jin can let this go,
and accompany him forever.
But Yun Jin has also been scarred.
She keeps on working hard,
and acts as an independent woman.
Only in this way,
will she be able to be the same with Cheng Zheng
and be worthy of his love.
brings the two people to more conflict
like a volcano that may explode at any moment.
7.04 YOU DON’T LOVE ME
Finally one day,
facing Yun Jin’s return,
full of alcohol,
Cheng Zheng fights hugely with her.
And the two people are brought to a passive aggressive stand.
Until another school reunion comes along,
and the utterly drunk Cheng Zheng hugs Meng Xue by his side.
He wants to use the worst method to make Yun Jin jealous,
but Yun Jin only moves aside peacefully.
even Meng Xue thinks it is very dopish.
The person he loves so bitterly,
is actually someone he isn’t sure if she loves him back.
Meng Xue’s deep words
sink into Cheng Zheng.
When he gets home,
the first thing he says to Yun Jin
is something that hurts one’s heart.
“You don’t love me.”
Finally, under these circumstances,
the two people who have already been through the thick of it all
choose to breakup.
Su Yun Jin and Cheng Zheng
still lose each other in the end.
It turns out that people who knew each other’s bodies,
and were so intimate to the point of becoming one person,
can also be divided.
7.51 THE TRUTH BEHIND THE PAIN
It’s already passed four years,
and times are dull.
Through Su Yun Jin’s effort,
she becomes the company’s
And Cheng Zheng is also doing well.
after his last pursuit,
he has always maintained his single status
and his life is very smooth.
Until he receives an invitation to the wedding of Meng Xue.
At the wedding,
she meets Cheng Zheng
and his pregnant girlfriend, ZHENG XIAO PENG
She used to think the two of them would never meet again,
but in the days later,
Cheng Zheng always appears in her life.
He moved into her upstairs to live.
And often comes downstairs, asking Yun Jin to make noodles for him
Yun Jin used to think that time would wear away everything.
But when Cheng Zheng reappears,
she realizes that their old memories
But as of now,
the two are separate.
The guy in front of her is already going to be a dad to another child.
when Cheng Zheng comes downstairs again,
Su Yun Jin refuses
and the two fight again,
and the childish tempered Cheng Zheng
says that he cannot let go of her after so many years.
But Yun Jin tells him a painful truth.
That year, when Su Yun Jin left Cheng Zheng,
she was already pregnant.
She decided to have the child,
but a mishap occurred,
and another mishap occurred during the surgery.
She didn’t just lose her last connection with Cheng Zheng,
but she might not be able to have another child again.
After Cheng Zheng knows the truth,
he disappears for a year.
At that time,
when they meet again,
he also finally
tells her that Xiao Peng was only someone he found to be his fake girlfriend.
Now, he is truly asking if Yun Jin can be together with him again
but Yun Jin closes her heart.
How does she dare to
go through this emotional love relationship again?
9.11 A REQUEST IN THIS LIFE
The days pass quickly,
it’s now October 19th,
the day of the Goddess of Mercy.
Yun Jin returns to the temple she went to before,
she finds the book that Cheng Zheng wrote his request in
and finally sees
Cheng Zheng’s request that year was only three words,
SU YUN JIN
and it is these three words,
that open Yun Jin’s closed heart.
After Yun Jin’s mom’s death,
the story reaches its pinnacle.
When she is sending off another relative,
Cheng Zheng keeps staying by her side,
making Yun Jin feel,
that the two of them were already together in the beginning.
she will hold Cheng Zheng’s hand
and never let go.
During our younger times,
we lost each other.
But as of now,
he is always there.
But it’s still good,
that through many twists and turns,
it turns out that you are still here.
