[Info] Wine and People - A wine journey together with Atom in Gorilla in the Kitchen

source: Jaime's blog / yasai's blog

Jaime: Atom san apparently has written a book on (whatelse but) wine and looks like Yong Joon has also played a role in it. As you can see from the cover(?), they were dining in Gorilla. Looks like there will be some kind of promotional event too. Hehe, I just translate the words in the pictures here .....

"A wine journey together with Atom in Gorilla in the Kitchen
Bae Yong Joon san's sommelier Atom san, his book 'Wine and People'
Commemoration of simultaneous release in Japan and Korea. Special Event!!"

" 1. At Bae Yong Joon san's Gorilla in the Kitchen, Atom san's recommended wine and special cuisine will be served. *Special cuisine will be identical to what is served to Bae Yong Joon san in the book 'Wine and People'

2. Atom san will reveal inside conversation with Bae Yong Joon san and Kim Hyung Joon san during his 'Wine and People' interviews.

3. Handshaking with Atom san and picture taking (by blog cameraman?) - 4 per person. The picture taking will use the same background as what Bae Yong Joon san was in.

4. Participants will have Atom san's autograph in both the Japanese and Korean version of 'Wine and People' as presents."

[News] How much did Bae Yong Joon make from 2003 to 2007?

by MountainMadman @allkpop

The famous Hallyu star Bae Yong Joon was found to have earned over 53 billion won (approx. 50 million dollars) during a period of five years from 2003 to 2007!
According to a report filed on June 22nd, nearly half of his five-year income – 23.8 billion won – was earned in 2005 alone, the year that KBS’s ”Winter Sonata” became a hard-hitting sensation across Asia.
The majority of his income was found to have come from royalties, product endorsements, CF deals, and his position as a part-owner of Key East Entertainment.
With this new piece of information, it’s hard to rebuke the idea that Bae Yong Joon is at the forefront of the Hallyu Wave.

[Yonsama visited us.]

Today, Yonsama visited our company.
After he had a secret meal at the VIP room, he left with his sunglasses on and wore his hat covering part of his face. But who wouldn’t recognize him.. hahaha

Everyone furiously fought each other to serve him since a week ago, but unexpectedly I was chosen to serve him..

I’m not interested in entertainers and it’s hard to serve the customers in the VIP room, because the VIP room is on the second floor. I refused to do it, but..

Today, all of the female employees were excited. hahaha

*suehan: I heard that YJ showed up at Gorilla on June 20th, and about 15 fans greeted him. He had dinner with Mr. Yang and left around 9:30 pm.

A Journey in Search of Korea's Beauty, Bae Yong Joon

Bae Yong Joon.
Today I found a new book.
It made me think that we could not hurt BYJ’s heart.
Ah… “A different view from what I had thought,..” as I flipped past another page.
Opening his closed heart, 
He has achieved a lot early considering his age. 
Because he did not get experience parts of his youth, 
it made me hope that he can find different happiness later.
Like his appearance, his soft and kind character stands out.
With everything that he has achieved so early in his life, 
it also tells the story of how he lost a lot as well. 
After achieving so much fame and fortune through his work, 
I hope that now he can take the time to find at least find one special relationship... 
After encountering yet another book, I was able to confront a new welcoming face...

[Trans] YJ was spotted (June 19th, 2011)

Right now, Bae Yong Joon is in front of me and
Ko So Young is behind of me.

Kim HyunJoong said he wanted to help out in Bae YongJoon's wedding.

On 18th of June, we met Kim HyunJoong who came back with his solo album in Guerilla Date on 'Entertainment Weekly' which was broadcast in KBS2.

When he was asked what type of topics he would usually talk about when meeting with Bae Yongjoon, he told us frankly, 'It's usually what men would be talking about, and sometimes about women.'

Kim HyunJoong also urged Bae YongJoon should get married soon. He said, 'It's okay if I'm still a virgin but YongJoon hyung shouldn't be'.

He added, 'It's okay I'm still a single because I'm still young, YongJoon hyung should get married. I want to help out.'

Additionally, he said he is the No.1 'Shenyang Star of the Country' (bringing glory to the country), he thanked his fans saying, 'I wanted to help more people, hoping so that to be loved by more people, not only at this moment only.'

[Trans]It looks like he played golf on June 17th, 2011.

I came to the tee off exhibition test for golf moms. I heard that Bae Yong Joon is here too, but my ball fell into the water.

suehan: I couldn’t quite understand some parts of her twit, but I’m sure she heard that BYJ also came to the golf course. Later she twitted again saying that she couldn’t meet BYJ.
