Translated into English: suehan

Sometimes my son is called for the CF or movie shooting even though he isn’t a famous actor. One day before the shooting day, we got a call from someone related to the Japanese animation Winter Sonata shooting site and we went there.

I hesitate a bit because he would appear as a supporting actor, but since I promised to appear, we hurried to there despite of hardship. Many people came hurriedly as well, but I regretted to go there because of the cold weather. I was really sorry for my son.

After about 40-50 minutes, we started to move and headed to the studio. It took about 20 minutes by walk. Until that time, all of the child actors’ mothers were upset.

About two hours have passed, the shooting started, and about another hour has passed.. What’s going on here? Oh My God. Suddenly Bae Yong Joon showed up.

I was so surprised because he was right in front of me, and my bad mood thus far disappeared because of him. Everyone goes to see him despite of their hardships, but I’m seeing him right next to me. Wow.

Thanks to my son. But, my son didn’t know that, and he kept running, fell down, and even a woman assistant director gave him looks continuously. Thinking to go back home, but I decided to stay because I didn’t want such a long waiting period to go in vain.

He wasn’t my favorite entertainer, so I started to lose interests in him as time passed even though he passed by me. He was expressionless, wearing sun glasses and didn’t look at my son even once. My son was more handsome than him. I thought so~~

I was so surprised by his smile when he filmed the last wedding picture. He was expressionless and suddenly he smiled so naturally. Right at that moment, it reminded me of my most beloved husband with a potbelly.

I couldn’t help but be so surprised by his natural expression while he filmed three or four cuts. I couldn’t find his uneasy appearance as a star anywhere. He was so lovely.

He really was to me an angel while others expressed Choi Ji Woo an angel. (Of course, she was so pretty.) Oh my gosh. How can he smile so lovely like that?

There are many people, who smile nicely, but he is a born artist to me, I call myself a philosophical person. As I implied before, I didn’t admire or miss him. Frankly, I didn’t have an interest in him as an entertainer. I like Kang Dong Won who has totally a different style. If you contact me, I really appreciate it. Ha ha ha.

Let’s go back to the original story; it’s a bit of a sensitive issue, but I remember the article about his past love story. Not like now, when he had a difficult time, he had a lover, but his parents didn’t like her. It seemed like a drama to me.

I don’t know whether it’s a true or not, but he must have been hurt. Not only that, he might have been hurt for some other reasons, so he looks cold to endure them. But I could sense his warm heart from his smile.

It seems far-fetched? I clearly guess that, then, is he a born artist? or does he have a good fortune in his face? If I need to choose one, I want to select the first.

There must be someone who is born with superior abilities. Born with a beautiful face, or body, or singing ability, or talking skills.

But, I don’t think he was born with those abilities. Of course, it’s from my standpoint. That’s why I respect him. And I envy him, but I can’t be near him. But I want to know if I need to learn something from him and if so, I want to show it to my son.

It might be a part of excessive motherhood (to raise my son, a child actor, like him), but I’m happy because I found it (suehan: a role model?).

Was it the first time for me to see an entertainer?? Ah... I’m a country girl. I admit that.

A child actor’s mother next to me tried to take a picture of Bae Yong Joon ssi, but she was restrained. I requested it to his manager politely, but I was refused as well. I wasn’t upset because his manager explained the reasons to me very politely by saying, “Others might want to take pictures of him too.”.

Actually, I wasn’t regretting it much at that time. But I’m regretting it a lot now.

I saw his smile and I should have requested to take a picture of him politely again. I’m not sure anybody can see him in his/her life time.
Like this, “Would you please take a picture with my son, so he can want to be like you, Bae Yong Joon ssi?”

I think I should have been brave. If I took a picture of him, even though I was refused, still my son might have felt something when he would have seen me requesting the picture.

For example,
“What? You ignored my mother? I’ll pay you back.” or, if he knew he was a famous person, “Wow, I took a picture with such a famous person. I’ll be successful as him.”, like this.

I don’t think I can’t sleep well tonight.
I don’t like one side love, but I’ll be really happy when I have someone, whom I can feel and learn from while I watch him. Is this called fascination??

I’m 34 years old, and it’s my first time being fascinated with an entertainer.

suehan: I just want to summarize the blogger’s posting because he mostly explained the pictures to introduce the restaurant. He said that this restaurant appeared in many Korean dramas including ‘Pasta’, and the name, ‘Insitu’, is Italian and it means ‘here’ or ‘at this place’.

According to him, BYJ visited there on February 17, 2010, and I think he got the date from BYJ’s picture below. The address of the restaurant’s website is

‘My Friend Yonsama’ from the article of Ryu Seong Soo’s interview

Reposted from suehan's blog

Original in Korean: Woman Joongang Feb, 2010 issue.
Extracted by: Elain/byjintoronto.
Translated into English: suehan

Hallyu Star Bae Yong Joon’s best friend who has a wide acquaintance, even though it’s unknown, in the entertainment field.

I talked about ‘Yonsama’ first when his name appeared in our conversation. Then, he gave me a hint by saying, “He doesn’t like to be called by that name when I used it in front of him.”, and “If you meet him, make sure to call him by his real name, not his nickname.” He added, “I don’t know how he looks, but basically, he feels the burdensome on the value of his name and he doesn’t like to show off. He was even mad at me by saying, ‘Yo, use my real name when you call me.’ when I called him as Yonsama as a joke over the phone.”

How does ‘a human being’ like Bae Yong Joon appear to him as a friend, not as a Hallyu Star? According to Ryu Seong Soo, he’s an average man in his late thirties who likes human beings and enjoys drinking occasionally. He said, “You would think that he chooses the people whom he wants to meet, doesn’t have good connection with others and never drinks. Am I right? No, you’re absolutely wrong. He likes to go here and there and meet other entertainers even though he wasn’t recognized. Maybe he is somewhere around here (Cheongdamdong). He has a technique that allows him to move around without being recognized, and most people think that he stays at home most time, but it’s not true (laugh)”.

Even to Ryu Seong Soo, his first impression of Bae Yong Joon was of a person who was ‘hard to get close to’ It was difficult for him to get close to BYJ when he approached him because he thought that BYJ couldn’t be good with others. But he saw BYJ’s humble thinking and good personality after he spent time with him, so they developed a relationship as friends.

They call each other in the morning, and go to the valley in the summer sometimes. But he can’t deny that he is careful and nervous because BYJ is a “Hally Star” now. He laughed with a joke, “His image shouldn’t be destroyed because of me.”

“Many people asked me about him like they asked Gong Hyeong Jin about Jang Dong Geon.” I’m proud to have a successful friend, but I’m cautious because he is a big top star. I don’t want to hurt his reputation because of my unnecessary talking (laugh)”

[Reposted and Trans]Filming for the animation Winter Sonata on March 19, Friday.

Reposted from suehan's blog


We arrived at the filming site after the twists and turns.
We waited at the basement, and we were called up to the fourth floor.
It was the last scene of the wedding scene.
There were only three children, so the director, assistant director, and staff were nice to us.
The children made noises, but they quieted down when they heard, “Action!”.
They were so nice. Hahaha

We were so happy when Bae Yong Joon ssi and Choi Ji Woo ssi came while we were in the middle of filming.
Of couse, big stars were different. Their atmospheres from their appearnces were different.
My eyestrain disappeared completely. It looked like it was my lucky day, not Yubin’s.

The filming started a little after 11:00, but ended at 4:00
The children were so happy, even though their mothers had leg and lower back pains.
Yubin did something that wasn’t in the script, but the director prasied and encouraged her to continue acting.
Actor Ryu Seong Soo ssi said that she had talent and praised her. For these reasons, it was a pleasant day which made the weariness dissappear.
