According to the staff (of Gorilla in the Kitchen), Bae Yong Joon goes there quite often because he has his office on the second floor. If I was lucky, I might have run into him. I was so unfortunate. I heard that he definitely comes to the store 2, or 3 times a month.


[Wow, that is Good]

Wow.. I saw So Ji Sub and Bae Yong Joon. They were hanging around together. Hahaha. There were so many Japanese grannies. Are they at the peak of their popularities? So Ji Sub looked so handsome, but I don’t know about Bae Yong Joon.

I went to an institute (Daechi-dong bound), and when I passed the gym, I saw So Ji Sub and Bae Yong Joon there. The Japanese grannies were all over. It was fun to watch.

Looking at his time in the States for last three weeks.
Summer vacation in San Francisco and Hawaii!

“I heard that Yonsama stayed in San Francisco and Hawaii. He returned to Korea on July 21st after he stayed in the States for three weeks.” (someone related to work)

While he stayed in Hawaii, there was an episode of friendship.
“He attended the Wonder Girls’ concert in the world tour.” (Korean Reporter)

The Wonder Girls are the famous women idol group whom Park Jin Young, the representative of the JYP Entertainment, manages. Park Jin Yong is Yonsama’s partner, they teamed up in the new drama “Dream High”.

“Park Jin Young came up on the opening stage. It seems that he appeared upon Yonsama’s request. (suehan: I’m not quite clear about this sentence.)” (Korean Reporter)

Next day, right after he returned, he was seen at the Gorilla in the Kitchen.”

In Japan, Date edition & Test edition of the Nintendo DS software “Learn Korean on the Nintendo DS with Bae Yong Joon ” (5,040 Yen each) is expected to be released on August 26th.

Was he able to enjoy his long time waited vacation in the States?

Here is the Korean Airlines lounge where we stopped by before we headed to the Incheon International Airport from Hawaii. I was in the room and it seems only first class passengers can use this room. 

(suehan: I believe you can see YJ’s legs :)

There are two tables like this one.

Only snacks are provided for a quick bite. Juices are provided, but not liquors.

Meals are ready right after you aboard the plane.

Something light bread and apple juice.

Here is the place where the airport lounge is located.

Excellent landscaping.

We went to the Big Island for a bit to visit the coffee plantation and play golf during this Hawaii trip.

When we went to the big island, we chartered a plane to save time and because of the numbers of our group.

This is the airport lounge. We were the only passengers.

There were clouds in the sky of Honolulu Airport. 

This is the chartered plane we used. Let’s board a plane.
(suehan: can you spot YJ’s back? He is at the top of the stairs)

The maximum capacity is 16, but a flight attendant was provided.

Preparing for takeoff.

Now, the plane departs.

It went up to 13,000 feet. (About 4,000m)

The view from the pilot seat was fantastic.


Beautiful coastline, clouds, and blue sea. Fantastic view…

Returning to Honolulu after itinerary.

I heard that there are many vacation homes owned by American rich people in the Big Island. . So, we can see many private jets.

There are many F-16 fighter jets that belong to US military on one side. I heard that they are performing practice flights several times a day.

It’s rare to have the opportunity to see many fighter jets in such a short distance.

Beautiful sunset in Hawaii.

Signs exclusive contract with The Face Shop

Singer cum actor Kim HyunJoong became a Bae YongJoon-standard CF model.

According to beauty cosmetic industry, Kim HyunJoong recently signed an exclusive contract with The Face Shop. The Face Shop mainly uses the cream of the crop Hallyu stars as their models. They have used big Hallyu stars such as Bae YongJoon, Kwon SangWoo, Jeon JiHyun, Go SoYoung, etc. Because of that, there is a lot of attention in the beauty cosmetic industry on Kim HyunJoong’s contract this time.

The Face Shop is a major low-mid priced cosmetic brand which recorded sales of 257.1 billion won last year, what is even more eye-catching is that their export business to Asia regions. With this contract, it is analyzed that Kim HyunJoong will confirm his position in Asia.

Because this CF contract is the first modeling/endorsement contract for Kim HyunJoong after his move to Bae YongJoon’s company Key East, it has gained attention. After it was known that Kim HyunJoong signed a 1 year exclusive contract for over 500 million won, a top-A-grade contract, all eyes and ears in the CF industry are on Kim HyunJoong. Kim HyunJoong will start his endorsement in Autumn-Winter, and will be making official announcement on his modeling/endorsement contract next month.

With Kim HyunJoong signing contract with The Face Shop, many are curious if Bae YongJoon will be his partner in the CF. Even though Bae YongJoon’s endorsement contract has ended, depending on whether if there is a re-contract, he might be appearing in the CF with Kim HyunJoong.

Kim HyunJoong is currently in the midst of filming for MBC drama ‘Mischievous Kiss’.

[Surfing with Yonsama in Hawaii]

Yonsama of ‘Winter Sonata’ took a surfing lesson from Roy today.
Roy doesn’t know about him at all.
Is there any picture of him?
So I can talk about him while I explain that he’s a famous Korean.
(suehan: I couldn’t quite understand two sentences above which I wrote in italic)

I’ve never watched ‘Winter Sonata’.
I can’t post the pictures of him because of the copyright issues.
I’ll post them when I get permission to do so.
If you have a chance to meet Roy, please ask him about Yonsama.

This mansion is located on Kahala beach, and we stayed here during this trip.

This is the main entrance.
Let’s go in.

We can see the beach through the big living room windows.

There are bedrooms on the second floor.

Looking down from the second floor.

Main bedroom.

Wash basins.



Looking down from the second floor, you can see the outhouse and small swimming pool in the backyard.

Coming down from the second floor, we go to the kitchen.
It’s equipped for many people to have a meal together.

You can see the beautiful beach from the kitchen as well.

Coming out to the back yard.

It’s a pretty big swimming pool

An outhouse in the back.

A neat, small house.

I especially like the kitchen a lot.

The main bedroom is facing the swimming pool.
A small bedroom is facing the tennis court in the back.
This house possesses the most beautiful view late at night.
It’s fun to swim while drinking champagne at night.
The ones who have experienced it will know that.
