A Secret Phone Call with BYJ
Emcee 1: You had a secret phone conversation with Bae Yong Joon?
Emcee 2: Are you really close to him?
Phil: What happened was that I said, “I’m me and Bae Yong Joon is Bae Yong Joon”, when I had the interview with the newspaper company. He saw that interview article and called me.
BYJ: Are you Phillip?
Phill: Who is this?
BYJ: I’m Yong Joon.
I was so nervous when Bae Yong Joon ssi called me
Phil: Oh, senior. How are you doing?
BYJ: You said, “Bae Yong Joon is Bae Yong Joon, and I’m me.”, in the article?
I remember saying that, but I insisted denying it.
Phil: Well, I don’t know. I can’t remember well.
But BYJ said that he had seen it.
BYJ: Did that fact give you damage?
I thought a little while, because I was scared.
Phil: No, brother. I’m honored to have such face.
BYJ: Is that right?
I want to use this incident as an opportunity to get close to him. It was summer time and I like water skiing. So I told him that I would invite him to the shore someday. And we went Cheongpyeong Lake (suehan; 清平湖畔, http://www.gptour.go.kr/site/foreign/english/sub04/01_01.jsp) with his closest friend, Ryu Seong Soo.
So, we all went there, Bae Yong Joon probably imaged to ride a big yacht, but the shore I went to is a very shabby pIace. And I even had a hard time turning on the engine. I told to him to get on the boat, and he did. He had a cast on his arm at that time. When I turned on the engine, the boat started shaking.. Daldaldal… And we had fun and I thought he was hungry. He said, “How about ramen?” So I cooked ramen and serve him on an aluminum pot. He picked noodle like this on the lid of pot and ate it uncomfortably. So, I said, “Bro, you look a bit awkward.”, and he responded, “What are you talking about? It’s fine.” He ate it like this..
He was so humanly and awesome to me. And someone asked him for his autograph, but he couldn’t do it because he had a cast on his arm. He told him that he would send it to him later. And I had a phone call from that person (the store owner on the lake) about a week later; he said that BYJ sent him an autograph. He kept his promise. He’s surely different than others.
