April 30, 2010 will be the day that I’m never going to forget.
It might remain in memory for my entire life.
My day has begun as usual.
After 10:00 a.m.,
The director, who has a particular character, called me urgently with a little nervous voice.
The director said,
“Please get ready for Yonsama Bae Yong Joon because he is coming at five o’clock today to look at the clubs.”
Oh, Yeah ~~~!!!
The top class super star entertainer is coming.....!!
I cleaned the indoor driving range and replaced the old balls with new ones.
I reviewed his golf records and history for about an hour and acquired full knowledge of them.
The information I obtained goes as follows;
It’s said that he is the member of Singgeul Beonggeul Golf Club, and he is a power hitter and his average handicap is under ten. It’s said that he hasn’t played golf for about six years due to his shoulder injury.
We’re busy these days because of the golf season, so the three of us including Young Bok and Hyeon Joong moved busily. Time has passed and it became five p.m. which was the reservation time.
Shortly after, we got a call from his staff indicating that he would arrive in five minutes. At that time, there were five customers in the fitting room not knowing what was going to happen in five minutes. They were making noises while choosing the good golf clubs.
There was a big noise on the iron stairs and, at that moment, he was surrounded by his staff when he appeared.
Saliva in my mouth has already gone, but I swallowed saliva.
The middle age woman customer near him had an expression of disbelief she couldn’t believe what she saw and tried to confirm him several times. She came with her husband and he was embarrassed. hahaha
I initiated the conversation with him about golf, this and that, with an intentional (?) comfortable expression.
I could feel that our relationship improved in about five minutes. It looked like the relationship between the star and the fitter changed to the comfortable customer and the fitter.
We talked about the desires and deficiencies of the golf equipments for about an hour and started to hit the ball.
I have seen many entertainers, but he was different from the others.
It looked like his old swing still remained, so he showed a fast head speed with a strong impact.
The fact that he was formally a power hitter wasn’t a lie.
I could seehis sincere, exploratory, and competitive attitudefrom the questions he asked while I was talking to him for about two hours about the golf clubs from a very short distance.
After the consultation, he ordered the clubs based on the data of unmoving and moving positions and left the store.
He said goodbye to all of the employees.
Surely, he was a star......!!
I went outside with the director to where his car was to send him off.
He said this when he was leaving,
“I’ll come back to order *** golf club. ~~~~~~!!”
I had a wonderful day.
I was really happy even though I needed to work for about four hours to make his golf club in my off day.
Later, I heard the story that all of female employees of the building where our fitting shop was located gathered near the window and brought their cell phones to the window to take pictures of him. hahaha
Next day, his Maybach showed up and a curtain of the back seat was drawn on the window. (I wish I could live like him.) I gave the golf club and its specifications to his manager (?)
suehan: Here is a posting which shows the huge success of BYJ’s Nintendo DS program teaching Korean for the Japanese.

5. Mobilero laid a foundation from the mobile game, “Dangerous Invitation”, but not like their company name, they are currently developing a game for Nintendo DS.
They had a huge success because of the Bae Yong Joon’s Japanese class program in Japan which was reported in some newspapers a while ago. Anyhow, after that, they stopped the business relating to the mobile game completely and are working on several projects relating to the Nintendo. They are becoming the most stabilized company in Busan.
I heard that they are going to change the company’s name soon.
They are located at Centum City in Haewoondae, their home page address is: http://www.mobilero.co.kr
‘Wine Korea has to produce about $400,000 worth of wine due to this contract(suehan: with Indonesia).This company is in conference with Hallyu star Bae Yong Joon regarding the production of Yonsama Wine.”

[This is my first posting, and I want to share this story with you. I saw BYJ today.]
I was going to keep this story to myself only, but I changed my mind so I could share it with you. Unexpectedly, I needed to go to the dermatology clinic today and saw Japanese fans that were standing in the street. So, I guessed that ‘he might come here today as well.’ (Sometimes, I asked to the nurses(suehan: about him)when I saw the Japanese fans who were standing outside. Most of the time, I got this response from them ‘he has not showed up yet’, so I’ve never seen him.)
I wondered when I saw the director opened the door in the lobby of the first floor and she was standing next to the door. And I could hear the noise from outside.
BYJ came inside and watched outside while waving his hand and talking with the director for a few minutes.
He said this, I think,“They are taking pictures.”Anyway, he talked about the pictures for a few times. (Here is my question. Is it wrong to take a picture of the clinic?) Anyway, his voice was low and an art.
He was wearing a black cap, sunglasses, black jersey.
He came alone.
He got on the elevator with the director.
I passed there and used the stairs with the other director.. (wuuu.. I should have gotten on the elevator, but I was so nervous.)
It seemed that he was close to her because he was using the informal words when he talked to that director. Oh, I was so jealous of her.
His face was small and pretty dark.
He was skinnier than I expected.
I better go buy coupons of the dermatology clinic. Hahaha
I regret not taking pictures of him, because I was too timid.
I didn’t dare take pictures of him because only he and I were there with the exception of the nurses
I’d like to share this story with you even though it was a very small experience because you’re starving to hear every small news of him.
