When I worked for the print shop six years ago, we were one of the subcontractors for the Bae Yong Joon’s photo book.

I remember that my camera phone was inspected thoroughly before entering the job site to prevent a leak. I’m sure the photo books which were touched by my hands should be in the Japanese aunties’ arms.

Bae Yong Joon’s agent office is located in the right upper level of the company I work for. So, not often, but I saw him twice. I saw him driving his car and met him in the elevator. I became friendly with him, when I encountered him in the elevator. Hahaha

When I got on the elevator, I saw a tall man who has an extraordinary force (suehan: charisma). Suddenly, I had a feeling to do something.

Excuse me, are you Bae Yong Joon?
Wow. Hi. My name is also Yong Joon. hahaha
Oh, really? It’s amazing. haha
Yes. Yong Joon ssi on the six floor and Yong Joon on the fifth floor met each other.
Yeah. I’m glad to meet you. Hahaha

I shook hands with him and tried to become his friends. He told me to stop by his office and we exchanged phone numbers! Hahaha Bae Yong Joon and I have such a good relationship that we call each other. Hahaha

Please remove tint from the window or don’t wear the sunglasses. I want to see your face.

[Trans] Top designer Andre Kim dies at 74

By Chung Ah-young

Korea’s iconic fashion designer Andre Kim, known for his bold and elegant evening and wedding gown collections, died Thursday evening at a hospital in Seoul. He was 74.

Kim, who had been battling colon cancer, was hospitalized at Seoul National University Hospital last month after he developed pneumonia. He failed to recover and died at 7:20 p.m. Thursday, 20 days after hospitalization.

Although his health worsened from earlier this year, he took part in various events and activities.

In March, he unveiled his 2011 spring-summer collection at this year’s CHIC, Asian’s largest annual fashion exhibition held in Beijing, but rarely made public appearances since then.

Despite his weak health, he was known to have been preparing for a fashion show in China in October.

Kim always featured the nation’s top stars in his shows and received respect from the public for his frequent donations of profits to the underprivileged.

The designer held fashion shows in high-profile venues such as Angkor Wat, Cambodia and with the Egyptian pyramids as a backdrop.

At his last fashion show in China, he said that he wanted to hold a show at the Forbidden City in Beijing one day.

Renowned for his signature white, he preferred to exhibit glittering and romantic dresses in the color at his shows.

Kim garnered popularity not only from the fashion circle but also from the general public. His eccentric style — wearing heavy black eyeliner and all-white outfits — and his unique tone of speaking were often parodied by many comedians.

Born to a humble family in 1935, Kim, whose birth name was Kim Bong-nam, held his first fashion show in 1962 before opening “Salon Andre” in central Seoul. He was the first male designer and the first Korean to hold a fashion show in Paris in 1966.

Kim is survived by his son, Jung-do, 30, who he adopted in 1982, and two grandchildren.

I heard that Yonsama Bae Yong Joon used the Woonaksan (雲岳山) Myungpoom (Gourmet) Restaurant while he was filming TWSSG.

He indicated that he wanted to eat comfortably during the filming period, by not giving autographs or pictures taken of him. So, he used the restaurant for about one month.

They served excellent food, and before anything else, it was a cozy place

Haewoondae in Busan

I visited Busan for fun last weekend.


There was a couple who was kissing without a care of those around them at all.
(Someone who, was born in 1972 and didn’t marry yet, saw this scene, please marry soon. ^^)

View from the Pale de CZ.
My friend was allotted this condo and I sometimes come here.
It has an artistic view.

Pale de CZ is where I stayed.

[Trans] A memorable episode of the captain.

The Winter Sonata Shooting Site, Oedo (外島).
2010/08/06 21:35


This was the boat, the New Sun, which our families boarded.

While the captain was operating the boat, he shared his experience with us about a time when the Winter Sonata filming team used this boat. He said that they chartered this boat and he was so excited because Bae Yong Joon and Choi Ji Woo were designated in the very front seats on the left.

He wanted to get autographs from them, but he was not allowed to talk or approach them. So, on the way back after the filming, he stopped the engine in the middle of the sea, and threatened (^^) Bae Yong Joon to get his autograph.

He was so proud of his postcard that he was showing off the autograph, which he got by threatening BYJ. He also said that the Japanese tourists were crazy taking pictures on the spot where Yonsama was seated in spring. He was very proud of his boat, the New Sun.

Annyong Hasaeyo, dear family

Annyong Hasaeyo!
Dear family, this is Yang Geun Hwan.
How are you all doing?

Now in Korea, air of excitement to support the World Cup is incredible.
I am very happy to see players representing Korea and Japan are fighting well at far away South Africa.
I pray for the best for Asian countries.

Recently, I heard number of heat strokes are rising because of hot weather.
I am concerned whether everyone is doing well.
Please take good care of your health.

Rain season will be soon over in Korea, and hot days will continue.
I have told actors and staff of Keyeast to take care of their health.

Yong Joon-san completed calendar shooting in Hawaii last month and safely returned home.
Every year, we try hard to show new style in the calendar.
Yon Joon-san worked hard for the shooting so that he could create a calendar that can satisfy everyone this year as well.

Also, Keyeast office had relocated this month.
As I was preparing for relocation, I was sorting out office supplies.
As we stayed here for long period, we will miss it greatly, but as we sorted out stuff it was a good chance to get fresh new feelings.
We will do our best to show our new style from our new office.

Please take care of your health in the hot weather.
Kamsa Hamnida.

Yang Geun Hwan
