Can't resist the temptation to post this up!!

After weeks of waiting, finally finally.. a new picture of him! Everyone in Bae Land is so full of excitement right now, I can almost imagine how it will be like when the actual shooting starts in March! Looking all tall and lean with that suave long hair and that V-neck exposing that muscular chest with that big smile on his face which everyone longed to see badly...

Yong Joon darling, you really know how to make our hearts flutter oh-so crazily!

. . korea and me . .

Believe it or not, I know nothing about Korea when I was young. Frankly speaking, I didn't even know such a country existed even until the near end of my secondary school days. Not until I met my penpal, Hye Jeong from Korea. Though she didn't really tell me much about Korea, the first thing I noticed was the uniqueness of their eyes. So Ji Sub has the exact Korean guys and in my personal opinion, I find that really cute and sexy!

When I reached poly at around the year 1999 or 2000, my dad brought my whole family to Korea as there was a suddenly tourism boom to promote Korea in Singapore and visiting Korea then was really cheap. If I'm not wrong, each person about SGD$900, not even SGD$1000. Maybe we were lucky to have met a group of great families in my tour group, but I totally enjoyed myself throughout the trip. Love the scenary, love the steamboats we had almost everyday, love the kimchi, love the skiing and many more! That was also my first time experiencing snow too. Well, silly young me even had a huge crush on a guy in my tour group, it just made the whole trip a tad sweeter and very memorable.. hahaha!! *shys away* It was one of my best trips ever! I miss Korea so much even till now.

Soon, Singapore started showing Korean dramas on TV but I wasn't that a huge fan then. All my friends were going ga-ga on Song Seung Hun and Song Hye Kyo, but because I didn't watch any, I didn't join in. Maybe coz there was no dual sound on my TV and I don't like the dubbing, or maybe I can't accept sappy soaps opera in the language which I'm not familiar then. I gave most of them a miss. My first drama, Beautiful Life starring Lee Byung Hun and Choi Ji Woo. Lee Byung Hun was the first K-actor whom I first liked. Besides his acting, I've read up on his sincerity towards his fans even in SG, from The New Paper one day, I was impressed. One day, he even called up personally to one of the SG fan's office and talked to her for like 5 to 10 mins! All the way from Korea! I started to discover the sincerity the Korean actors have towards the Korean fans. After I caught Winter Sonata, I'm a goner to Bae Yong Joon. I wish I knew him and Korean showbiz earlier, even before I go for the trip. I may have met him before and I don't even know it!! *pout*

I like Korea a lot, I honestly do and it is not entirely because Yong Joon though he is one of the actors who really make me want to know Korea more and learn their languge and culture. The other actor is Lee Byung Hun. I don't know, many people don't really like the language, but I love it. Love the way their speak, love how noisy it sounded when the locals talked so fast and loud, just love it. I am even more amused by the way how Korean characters are written, many lines and circles.

I don't know about politics and such though I know Korea has a lot of these, but I shan't be bothered too much or get affected by any of it. I just know that Korea is a great place to visit with the magnificient scenary you just can't miss! When am I going again? Probably later this year as I prefer the Wintery season. Am saving up now.. hee hee! Maybe I can be able to meet Yong Joon this time round coz it seems like fans got to meet him face to face unexpectedly these days, I may just be the lucky one?! *cross fingers*

. . divert attention . .

Bare with me for not posting anything up these days coz I'm so hooked to a fairly new drama, I'm Sorry I Love You, starring So Ji Sub now, I am finishing soon! So Ji Sub is soooo.... *blink blink blink* ... good-looking!!! *heart flutter* You can read the review in my other blog -> kdrama-addiction.blogspot.com

I'm really glad that both of them are under the same company! I wonder if they ever have a chance to act together.. hmm!

I will be back! I promise! It's better to finish it faster since the Bae world is quite quiet nowadays. Yong Joon's new drama had another delay in shooting again. I wonder what happened. Hopefully we have some updated news soon! I'm so excited that Bae world will all be buzzing with excitement soon, we have been waiting for this day for a really long time now.

. . missing the man . .

Click pic to see big pic!

Missing the man so much...

This is the first 2006 pic of him taken by a fellow fan who accidentally met Yong Joon at Lotte on 20th Jan 2006. How lucky lucky lucky of her to bump into him just like that!

Message from the lucky bae family:

On first day of our Seoul trip,
me and my friend were wandering about restaurants at Lotte trying to get our lunch,
we met BYJ waiting for the elevator.
As it was just after lunch time, there were only two of us!
It was 5 or 6 minutes until the elevator came,
but BYJ was there kindly smiling at us.

As elevator came and BYJ got on the elevator,
I took up the courage and asked to take a photo as a souvenir for my mother.
Man on right is president of Lotte DFS, and left is the manager.
They were very kind and held the door open till I finished taking the photo.

He looked so good in that pic, all healthy and freshen up with that smile we all missed so much, I assumed he had taken a good rest these past months! While we are all starving and craving for more of him, knowing that he is resting well privately, makes the pain of missing him more bearable..

. . wls trivia . .

Reposted by Liezle on Soompi.com

photo taken from www.joonsfamily.com

TRIVIA 1: JUN SANG is supposed to die due to illness.
DETAILS: The director wanted it so to make amends to SANG HYUK and make YU JIN to leave for Paris alone. But due to viewers' protests online, he decided to let JUN SANG survive but is blind.

TRIVIA 2: All things worn and used by BYJ and CJW became hot items:
DETAILS: Hairstyle, ways to tie the scarves, Polaris necklace, car, BYJ's sweaters, Gucci ring worn by BYJ on his pinky finger, BYJ's Frank Muller watch, Samsung phones and BYJ's green half-rimmed glasses.

TRIVIA 3: BYJ fainted on few occasions due to fatigue and lack of sleep.
DETAILS: However, he insisted on continuing even though he caught colds. He was so tired that he really slept in the hospital scenes. The supposedly weak CJW was well and didn't even catch a cold! CJW even shared her blanket with BYJ (which she brought during shootings so that she'll not get cold) when he got sick.

TRIVIA 4: BYJ did not want to be the young Jun Sang.
DETAILS: He tried to lose 4kg and stopped exercising. He was so afraid that a muscular physique would make him look weird in uniform. After filming a scene, he would look nervously to watch the effect. He was impressed that the director managed to help him look so young.

[Chris: He did a fab job as the young Jun Sang, don't think anyone can do better than he himself..]

TRIVIA 5: BYJ even broke his tradition of not reading the script beforehand as not to restrict himself in his acting.
DETAILS: He hates to place-read lines and wanted to act naturally.

TRIVIA 6: BYJ and CJW cared so much for each other.
DETAILS: She took care of his makeup while he was always there to cheer for her even though he wasn't involved in the scenes. When she couldn't get the right emotions, the director would ask where he was and asked others to bring him there. After filming the final scene, BYJ even offered his shoulder to let her sleep on. Many joked that they really looked like lovers even though she addressed him as "big
brother" fondly.

[Chris: Warmed my heart after reading this.. it is really nice that they really cared for each other, even as friends.. wonder why they distanced away from each other now.. hmm..]

TRIVIA 7: The last scene where BYJ was supposed to cry nearly drove him crazy because he couldn't cry at all.
DETAILS: CJW had to accompany him to cry and he was very apologetic.

TRIVIA 8: There was supposed to be 2 more episodes of Winter Sonata.
DETAILS: But BYJ and CJW are too popular that if their job assignments were delayed, their managing company will lose out 4 billion won. Now BYJ's price is coming to 13 billion so his company will not let him go. His fans who visit the filming spots when he was there got to enjoy the coffee that he bought for them.

TRIVIA 9: Many firsts for BYJ and CJW.
DETAILS: It's the first time for BYJ to blow dry and dye his hair while it's also the first for CJW to cut her hair short. BYJ likes white and his favorite car is the white Ford.

TRIVIA 10: BYJ and CJW were chosen as the best screen couple in many online contests.
DETAILS: When both were interviewed in a program, CJW said that if BYJ would be her first love, she'll not forget him for sure. He was so shy that his face turned red. It was rumored that they were a pair when they turned up in a lover's attire at the celebration party after the filming ended.

TRIVIA 11: In KBS' TV awards, BYJ won Best Actor and Most Popular Artist award while CJW won Best Actress.
DETAILS: In the said awards, the female host found a chance to make fun of him as he seldom appears in entertainment programs. She exclaimed how handsome he was and wanted to fulfill her wish – she asked him to look into her eyes and say he loves her. As the show was live and no cuts, BYJ was taken aback and was suddenly shy. He looked elsewhere and stammered in his speech. He smiled and said that he couldn't look at her directly. When the host insisted, he finally finished saying it. It was so amusing to see that BYJ was so reserved and shy after acting so many times as a prince charming in many series.

[Chris: Eee... so cute! KBS Award should have a Best Couple onscreen award, they will definitely win.. ]

TRIVIA 12: About 300,000 copies of the OST were sold in Korea within a month. A pop group ‘Black hole’ accused the songwriter of copying their starting for ‘From the start to now’. Wonder how the case was closed. Many rumoured that Ryu must be ugly to hide behind the scene. but when he appeared to promote the album in Hong Kong and Taiwan, they are amazed to find that he is actually nice looking. However, he had no wish to be an actor as he found it to mushy to read love lines.

TRIVIA 13: Yong Ha is Ji Woo’s fan and he was so overjoyed when he had many intimate scenes with her. He always hummed on the set. Yong Jun and Ji Woo enjoyed listening and persuaded him to cut albums. Judging from his popularity, he could be as successful as Kim Sang Hyuk.

TRIVIA 14: Many complained to the director that the act in letting Jun Sang regain his memory through the second accident was too deliberate. He confessed that he had no more ideas left but he couldn’t let Jun Sang cure his amnesia in hospital so he had to do it again.

TRIVIA 15: The wooden house scene when both are stranded in the resort wasn’t shot smoothly. Ji Woo couldn’t push open the door and took a long time to do it. And to make the blind Jun Sang discover her, she was supposed to push the table harder but she had no strength. No one could hear any noise at all.

TRIVIA 16: Many like the cheerful Yu Jin in the serial which shows a different side of Ji Woo. But she had a lot of NGs filming the dancing scene in the recording studio. And thanks to this role, her usual habit of reading lines unclearly was corrected.

[Chris: Loved her being the cute young Yu Jin, totally differnt from the image she usually potrayed as the weak and lost lovelorn woman.. :)]
