1. Vocabulary Introduction:

  • 可 (kě): “But.” Used as a conjunction to introduce a contrast or exception.
  • 你 (nǐ): “You.”
  • 曾经 (céngjīng): “Once” or “formerly.” Indicates something that happened in the past.
  • 那么 (nàme): “So” or “that.” Used to intensify the degree or extent of something.
  • 爱 (ài): “Love.”
  • 我 (wǒ): “Me” or “I.”
  • 干嘛 (gàn má): “Why” or “for what reason.” A colloquial way of asking the reason behind an action.
  • 演出 (yǎnchū): “Perform” or “act out.”
  • 细节 (xìjié): “Details” or “specifics.”

2. Grammar and Structure:
The sentence opens with “,” serving as a contrasting conjunction.
Following this is the subject “,” referring to “you.”
The past tense is indicated by “曾经,” meaning “once” or “formerly.”
那么” enhances the verb that follows, suggesting intensity. In this case, it amplifies “ (love).”
The object of the verb is “ (me).”
This part of the sentence, “你曾经那么爱我,” establishes a past state of affection.
The sentence then shifts to a rhetorical question starting with “干嘛,” asking “why” or “for what reason.”
The action being questioned is “演出 (perform)” combined with “细节 (details),” asking why there is a need to perform or act out the specifics.
The entire phrase “干嘛演出细节” forms a rhetorical question that contrasts with the previous statement of past love, questioning the need to focus on specific details now.

3. Translation and Meaning:
A direct translation would be: “But you once loved me so much, why perform the details?”
In natural English, it would translate to: “But you used to love me so much, why bother with the details?”

4. Conveying Nuance:
This phrase likely expresses confusion or frustration about focusing on minor details in a situation where strong feelings of love were once present. It suggests a disparity between the past intensity of emotion and the current preoccupation with specifics, possibly implying that such actions are unnecessary or overly analytical.
