What’s going on here x1000000000000000000000000000
There is a new drama being filmed at our Goyang Art High School.

It’s called “Dream High” 
Bae Yong Joon, and many idol stars such as Joon Ho, Woo Young, Taec Yeon of 2PM, Suzy of Miss A, and Eunjeong of Tiara will be appearing in it.

I heard that it will air in 2011, but they already came here for the filming.

Suzy’s face is really small and looks like I have to call her, big sister.
I didn’t recognize Eun Jeong because she was wearing glasses. 
She was so pretty when she took her glasses off.

Hwang Yoon Jae, who is in the next class, approached Suzy and showed his love to her by singing her a song. Suzy smiled and she was so cute.
I want to stay in the dormitory during the vacation. ......♥

Hello, everyone.

It started from his desire to make a family album and he has actually been dreaming about it for a long time.

Family pictures are hung on the best spots, where they can be seen anywhere in the living room proudly, bringing comfort and motivation during hard times with the genuinely happy faces of those closest to us that are evident in the pictures.

Through this event, we hope this project will provide memorable moments not only for Bae Yong Joon but for Families as well.

We would like to start with Korean Families.

On the 21st, Bae Yong Joon participated in the script reading practice of KBS 2TV’s new Mon-Tue Mini Series “Dream High” (Writer, Park Hye Ryeon, Producer, Lee Eung Bok) which was held at some place in Seoul.

It was the breaking moment of the 3 year silence since MBC’s drama “TWSSG” since 2007. Someone of “Dream High” said, “Bae Yong Joon, producer and someone from the production company attended the script reading on that day. After the script reading, the detailed filming schedule was adjusted.”

repost from suehan's blog
suehan: A member of café byjintoronto, who resides in Germany, went to Frankfurt Airport to greet BYJ on the 20th, but BYJ didn’t come to Germany. Atom nim was accompanied by a young man, but it wasn’t BYJ. 

A couple of days ago, BYJ was seen at the dermatology clinic (?), so he is currently in Korea.

[Extracted News] from Kim Hyun Joong's interview. (3)

2010-11-24 17:41

Kim Hyung Joong returned to MBC's "Mischievous Kiss", one year after "Boys over Flowers", but he received a poor review with disappointing one digit viewing rates. Expections were high because it was the first work since he moved to Bae Yong Joon's management company, Keyeast.

"When the viewing rate was low after the first episode aired, Yong Joon hyung sent me a text message saying, "it hit rock bottom, so I think it'll go up. Don't think about the viewing rates too much." I think it was a good experience because the rate continues to fluctuate. I learned how to cope with difficulties and I experienced that "When God closes one door, He opens another.". I hoped that it would be recognized in foreign contries some day, if not in Korea. I don't want to regret it."

Bae Yong Joon is a great senior for him, like a role model, and they have very good chemistry between them.

"There were plenty of rumors after my contract with DST Entertainment ended. Actually, I wanted to go to Yong Joon hyong's management compnay, but I couldn't speak to him frankly. One day, I talked to him about my problem with the management company. He said that He wanted to meet me to introduce me to the owner of his management company. And the CEO came with the contract. (laugh) So, I was glad."

[Trans]Yes! He is a very nice gentleman.

suehan: I found this posting on, but I don’t know when she saw BYJ.


I saw Bae Yong Joon with his manager and coordinator before.
I saw him from a distance, and I noticed that he was taking very good care of his manager and coordinator. 

His coordinator had to wait over 10 minutes to have ice cream.
Bae Yong Joon and his manager waited for her outside.
He was wearing a suit and had to stay in the hot sun.

His coordinator made him wait over 10 minutes and left after she finished her ice cream.
And then, Bae Yong Joon asked me and my friend where the Cold Stone is located because his manager wanted to eat there.
We answered that it was about 20 minutes away in walking distance and he was going to head over there right away by saying, “It’s not far.”

But his manager said “It’s okay. It’s okay.” And they left to eat a meal.
What I realized at that time was that he treated his manager very nicely, his coordinator had whatever she wanted to eat and she also browsed around without being conscious of him.
(What kind of entertainer treats their coordinators that well? 
Especially, an entertainer of Bae Yong Joon’s statue.)

I don’t know his past, but from that incident, I think he is a gentleman.
We can say that looks can be deceiving, but he was like that.

[News] Hallyu star Bae’s newly purchased house revealed

Capture from KBS

Hallyu megastar Bae Yong-joon’s newly purchased house was revealed on KBS TV show “Park Soo-hong and Choi Won-jung’s Yeo Yoo Man Man.”

The house, located in Seongbuk-dong — one of the most affluent districts in Seoul — was revealed to be a sleek and luxurious two-floored building painted in white.
An increasing number of people have been visiting the house, and interior work on the building has been going on for about three weeks, a resident in the neighborhood told the KBS show crew.

The Hallyu star has been living at an apartment in Samseong-dong, Seoul, for the past four years. He plans to move into the newly-purchased building once the interior construction work gets completed.

Because Bae has been living on a lease so far, rumors have surfaced that the purchase of the building is part of secret wedding preparations by the star.

Bae’s agency Keyeast, however, said the actor has no plan to get married and bought the building simply because it was a great deal.
