Bae Yong Joon ssi. He had good manners. He covered himself, but he took off his sunglasses and hat when he asked to be excused. He covered himself right away yet again. Anyways, he was better looking than I thought.

[Updates] From Key East

Thanks bb for sharing some updates of YJ directly from KeyEast @ LoveBaeYongJoon


KE: He is getting better than back then. But as you probably know, whoever suffers from neck injury has to care and tend to it consistently (*bb: believe they’re referring to the therapy sessions, etc). But you don’t have to worry too much about that. He is in good condition.


KE: YJ wants to meet his family on the big screen or TV too. But for now, I’m sorry to tell you that nothing has been fixed yet. But something’s gonna be fixed sometime in the future. Do look out for updates through the homepage.


KE: Unfortunately, this project will have to be suspended for a while. There are many reasons you know, eg. BYJ’s health, Dream high, Japan’s earth quake etc etc. We’re gonna re-start the project as soon as we possibly can. But at this point, it’s hard to tell when it will be started again. I’m sorry.

ABOUT Tea Loft @Lotte Hotel

(*bb: i suppose many of you would have read SUEHAN’s BLOGS POST about the closure of Tea Loft? so sad, so sad, so sad…! i really loved going to Tea Loft whenever i visited seoul! the strange thing is the notice about the closure has not been put up anywhere, and in the GORILLAKITCHEN SITE, the contact info and operating hours of Tea Loft are still there…)
KE: Unfortunately Tea Loft has closed as you know. However, the homepage has not been updated yet. Tea Loft was operational up until 31st Dec 2010.

[News] Dream High 2 to audition cast via reality show

by javabeans | March 22, 2011 | 35 Comments
Dream High has announced the production of a sequel series, and that has everyone in a tizzy trying to either guess the new cast, or offer up their favorites for a fantasy version. Well, according to a KBS variety programming executive, they’re getting TWO shows in one (kaching!), because they’ll be holding a separate reality show covering auditions to find the new cast members.
Of course, not all of the cast will be selected via audition — I’m sure they’ve got idols lined up who’d dearly love that shot to break out into their acting careers — but those who make it through the reality program will get background roles. Which may even be better — imagine you’re a Dream High fan. Imagine your favorite idols get cast in the sequel. And then imagine that you get to play…their best friend. Or tormentor. Or rival, whatever.

This is quite possibly brilliant. It’s like the What’s Up auditions, juiced up and televised and turned into an entertainment property all its own. Well, the drama was known for its meta awareness and pop-culture referencing, so it only makes sense that that sequel go all-out in the meta department, yeah?
The reality auditions will be held in the latter half of the year, as they have another reality program in the works that will air first. KBS is also looking at production concepts for MC and comedian reality shows.
Dream High 2 is aiming to hit the airwaves in January 2012, co-produced again by Bae Yong-joon’s Keyeast and Park Jin-young’s JYP Entertainment. I have no interest in seeing Yonsama reprise his anemic cameo, but man oh man had they better bring back Park’s hysterically offbeat character. That dude was a scene-stealer if there ever was one. (Trivia! JYP named his character, Yang Jin-man, after the “Big 3″ music-biz CEOs: There’s YG’s Yang Hyun-seok; his own name, Park Jin-young; and SM’s Lee Soo-man.) Both Bae and Park are in talks to serve as the judges for the reality program.

[Screencaps] Documentary of "A Journey in Search of Korean's Beauty", Part 6 (DATV)

reposted from yasai nim's blog / suehan's blog

[Info] Tea Loft is closed.

source: suehan's blog
suehan: I found some postings on the internet regarding closing of Tea Loft which was located on the 14th floor of Lotte Hotel in Seoul. I was curious about it since it received excellent evaluations from Koreans and I also heard that their business was doing well. Some Korean fans in byjintoronto confirmed its closing. I believe it’s been closed as of December 31st, 2010.

[News]Kim Soo Hyun, “I was touched by the multi-vitamin present from (Bae) Yong Joon hyeong.”

NTN 2011-03-18 19:08 

Hallyu star Bae Yong Joon’s student, actor Kim Soo Hyun belongs to Keyeast like Bae Yong Joon. He was a part of the main cast who created “Samdong-ache” by appearing as a genius music student, Samdong, in the drama, “Dream High” which Bae Yong Joon and Park Jin Young participated in. That’s why his relationship with Bae Yong Joon is different than with the others.

Kim Soo Hyun hasn’t forgotten to talk about Bae Yong Joon at the recent interviews with this company. He hasn’t appear in the scenes with Bae Yong Joon in “Dream High,” not even one scene.

“I haven’t had any scenes where I appear with him in ‘Dream High.’ So, I’ve never had a chance to meet him in front of the camera. But he continuously encourages me. He sent me text messages one by one while monitoring the drama. Most of them critiqued the scenes. I really appreciate that.”

Kim Soo Hyun shared one episode related to Bae Yong Joon with us with a big smile. “One day, Yong Joon hyeong said that my face was tired looking. After that, I went to the shooting site and saw his present of multi-vitamins. I was touched. I’m still taking them.” 

Bae Yong Joon encouraged Kim Soo Hyun. Bae Yong Joon is somebody Kim Soo Hyun relied on.

“We had a conversation after the drama ended. He asked me about my feelings, and I answered with a positive response. Yong Joon hyeong said, “This is the most important time. You should share your love with others once you receive love from others. Please don’t forget modesty as well.” He helps me a lot.”

Kim Soo Hyun called Bae Yong Joon “Yong Joon hyeong” during the interview. I was curious because Bae Yong Joon is a major shareholder of Keyeast.

He said, “I was scared when I saw Yong Joon hyeong for the first time. Managers scared me saying, “Be careful.”, as a joke. I introduced myself to him nervously. But he responded nicely by saying, “Oh, I know you.” Since then, I opened my mind little by little and began to call him hyeong. Actually, once I asked him how I should call him because of his high position, CEO. But he said, “Call me as you would like” (laugh).

Kim Soo Hyun learned a lot from Bae Yong Joon by being near him. So he didn’t miss Bae Yong Joon’s name in discussion of his role models.

“I like Christopher Waltz in the movie, “Inglourious Basterds” I wanted to become an actor like him right after I watched the movie. Of course, Yong Joon hyeong is my role model in Korea. I’d like to learn his ability to be perfect.”

He attached wings on his back with “Dream High” It’s Kim Soo Hyun whom we expect today, rather than yesterday, and tomorrow rather than today, since he is preparing perfectly to fly farther than anybody else with those wings.
