Yesterday, BYJ Tornado Swept Past ....[Beijing]

As if he had already prepared for it, Bae Yong Joon looked at the hundreds of Bae-fans waiting for him at the multi-purpose hall at the Beijing Hotel and halted in his steps. He smiled at them and bowed slightly before walking up the stage with such graceful and elegant strides.

Once up the stage, he stood steadily with his bright and cheery smile and waved once again at the Chinese media and the Bae-fans who tried all ways and means to get into the press conference. Beautiful stance, beautiful smile brought about excited screams from the floor.

That was Bae Yong Joon, with his politeness and handsome smile, giving you a sense of warmth. Despite the distance, he felt friendly and gave rise to unlimited imagination. And before you knew it, he had already touched you, moved you.

For the China premiere of his movie April Snow, the handsome movie star who had created such a frenzy throughout Asia Bae Yong Joon stepped onto the soil of Beijing for the first time. His arrival brought about a Bae Yong Joon tornado, sweeping across the entire capital of China.

For his China trip, Bae Yong Joon had done his homework. During the dinner party, he met with the famous director Zhang Yimou and the just-as-famous movie man, Zhang Wei Ping, he was visibly excited. He presented his photo book to Zhang Yimou and asked for his autograph. [bb: I don't quite understand this part. If The Image was a present for Zhang, why would Yong Joon ask Zhang to autograph on it? I suspect the reporter made a mistake here, probably Yong Joon had asked Zhang to sign on the Hero DVD :) ]

He asked the interpreter to help convey to Zhang his wish: Zhang Yimou is the Chinese director he admires most, and he looks forward to working with him. Thereafter, he actually used mandarin to say it was Zhang's birthday that day. That moved Zhang tremendously. Bae Yong Joon accepted Zhang's invitation to attend the global premiere
of Zhang's movie Riding Alone for Thousands of Miles at Lijiang next month.

The beauty of Bae Yong Joon is in his mannerism and his grace. The must-have smile, and how polite and proper his conduct is. The cameras that kept flashing at Bae Yong Joon like snowflakes, surprisingly, made him rather shy and slightly embarrassed. He would raise his hand to touch and prop up his glasses, he would touch his hair a little, and even such gestures would bring about excited sounds from the floor.

And Bae Yong Joon would not disappoint you. His opening lines were all spoken in Mandarin: "Hello, everyone, I'm Bae Yong Joon. Thank you for your support, and thank you for supporting my movie." That immediately reduced the gap, the distance and everyone added points to his image mentally.

I was observing Bae Yong Joon, he sat very properly, he stood very 'correctly',
and when he was not talking, he would clasp his hands together and place them upon his legs and listen very attentively and intently. And if he stood up, he would smile first, raise himself to full length and then walk to wherever he needed to. He was ever so courteous and he would always give way to people, everything he did was proper, was appropriate.

The five big tour coaches of Bae-fans from Japan, Taiwan and Korea stood and waited outside the restaurant where he was having dinner. They stood unwavering in the cold,
just to catch one more glimpse of the man. Bae Yong Joon waved his thanks at them.
Bae-fans all behaved in an orderly manner; they would watch their idol get into the car before they boarded their own transport. The love and how unwilling they were to leave him were unspoken, but evident. The beauty of Bae Yong Joon is in his speech, the way he spoke and the things he said. Everything he said could touch the hearts of his fans.

Yesterday at about noon time, one could feel the fever of the fans the very moment Bae Yong Joon stepped off the plane. From old ladies in their sixties to young girls in their teens, thousands of people were waiting to receive him at the airport. Bae Yong Joon is truly an idol whose fans'age ranges from the very young to the not-so-young. The label "Auntie slayer" the Chinese media gave him seemed to please him. He flashed his killer smile once again and said in Mandarin, "I'm really thankful to them." Bae Yong Joon said, "This is the first time I've come to Beijing,
and I can see so many people coming to see me. I'm just so very sorry the time I could spend with them was too short, too little The next time, I will surely fight for more time with them. I will remember the power of their love." These words warmed the fans' hearts and kept echoing in their minds too.

Someone could not resist asking Bae Yong Joon what type of girls he likes Bae Yong Joon did not shy away from the question, he said he likes girls who are honest and sincere, and who are reliable and trustworthy. Basically, he's looking for the sort who is decent and good inside and out. His answer won him yet another round of applause.

The beauty of Bae Yong Joon can bring forth to people much imagination, the scope and strength are truly limitless. His looks has an appeal that is unisex, combining sensitivity, vulnerability, grace and elegance as well as a positive and cheerful disposition. All these combined in the body of a middle-aged man to become the object of desire for modern women.

I took the opportunity to interview some matured Bae-fans:

Why, why do you love Bae Yong Joon so much?

Their replies were just as interesting.

"Bae Yong Joon doesn't have that sort of aggression that most men have. He??s so gentle and tender. You will want to spoil him, care for him."

"He leaves me with much imagination. He will make you feel generous and tolerant, he will bring you warmth."

The fan club from Beijing presented flowers for Bae Yong Joon, they said, "To look at Bae Yong Joon is to feel happiness. It's a very unique feeling, this sense of happiness and joy cannot be replaced. There's no need for words between us.
The sense of warmth between us will just happen."

There's nothing magical about Bae Yong Joon.

What's magical is how he has a magnetic presence that slowly touches you and eventually overcomes you. It's irresistible, it's mesmerizing.
