I received an unexpected phone call in the morning.
I heard that Bae Yong Joon ssi was coming to see Gook Geunsep ssi of Myeonggahye in a few minutes.
An actor, Bae Yong Joon ssi.
I went to the house of the head of the village for an errand, returned and opened the window of the tea house in a hurry. I made a fire in the stove because it was in the morning and might be cold.
A little bit later, a handsome actor, Bae Yong Joon ssi whom I have seen in the movies and TV got off from the top class sedan and walked into the tea house with the security guards. His car was in the middle and several cars in the front and back of it escorted his car.
We shook hands with delight and I took him to the Myeonggahye Tea House. Gahyue nim served him Jookro Tea (竹露茶).
Bae Yong Joon ssi said that he was fond of the Korean traditional tea and questioned me about Jookro Tea whom I made myself. We talked about the tea a lot.
Like the title of his book, ‘Journey to discover the beauty of Korea’ that was made of the pictures and essays recently during his busy filming schedule, he wanted to meet and talk to Gook Geunseop himself to drink and experience “Myeonggahye Jookro Tea” which was made by me and is the one that represents Dam Yang.
After he drank the Myeonggahye Jookro Tea of Dam Yang, he praised it highly and bought some of it.
I sang the short song of Pansori, Sacheol Gaeul for him and his staff and they all love it. I recommended him to beat a drum, but he said that he had never beat it before and hesitated. I told him not to worry if he did it well or not and that he can do it naturally if he beat it with his heart. He beat a drum while I sang Jindo Arirang and we all mingled without any reservations to their social class.
He said he wanted to sleep over at the Myeonggahye Korean House which was surrounded by the bamboo forests someday when he has time, and I said that I could arrange it anytime so that he can rest comfortably.
The meeting of the best actor of Asia, Bae Yong Joon ssi, Gook Geunseop and Gahye nim of Damyang lasted almost two hours at the culture ground of Myeonggahye that has the tea and songs of the southern culture. We communicated from heart to heart and the meeting remained in our hearts beautifully.
He gave me his new book, autograph on his picture and I kept them as well.
Rather than a handsome and brilliant Bae Yong Joon ssi, the Bae Yong Joon ssi I met was a kind, friendly, and comfortable person to be around.
More than anything else, he really has lots of interests and an eye for our culture. He is intelligent, elegant, and a real actor who knows how to feel and enjoy real beauty.
Thanks SNOW (byjfamily) for the info, and the photos are from fuyuka's blog and arayo's.
These are Lee Hyojae's postcards, and according to one of the DATour staffs' diary, the postcard that YJ used to write the message at the Tokyo Dome event is one of the postcards of Lee Hyojae. But the staff can't recall which is the exact postcard YJ used.
The following are the postcards sold at Lee Hyojae's workshop.
