Hehe, you don't think I am just going to leave this award topic without giving my 2 cents, do u? Some sisters commented that watching Yong Joon receiving the awards is the BEST gift from him in this New Year. I am gratified in many ways : happy to know that his recovery is progressing well, happy to see his beautifil smiling face again, of course ecstatic to watch him receiving the recognition for his hard work.
To begin with, it was a struggle to sit through an award show not knowing how much MBC would focus on Yong Joon, plus I have really been drained emotionally and physically in the last few weeks bidding goodbye to my friends. Ha, if you think I dragged myself up early, there are sisters who are more devoted than me. Coco and Jill were up at 4:30am their time ready, able and willing to watch! Sustained by their enthusiasm and companionship, so the 3 of us were chatting, drooling, oohing and aahing all the way for the next 3 hours .......
Enter with a Big Bang!
Have you seen anyone who is more elegant walking with crutches than him? Hehe, you think our King practised at home in front of the mirror how to walk gracefully with those cructhes? Just like in Winter Sonata - right foot, left foot, right foot ..... :)
From head to toe, he just personifies elegance - that clean tied-up ponytail (thank Q thank Q, I am so used to his long hair now), that warm radiant face, that tailored tuxedo, the dark dress coat, those polished shoes. Btw, I love the length of the dress coat, just at his knees revealing the silk-satin stripe on the side of the tuxedo pants, such a classy detail. Now makes me wonder : since he cannot bend his knee, how can he put on his own pants? Is there someone helping him get dressed?? Now, shake that thought off, naughty naughty me! :) He said his managers actually painted his crutches black (I guess so they wouldn't stand out too much), what a hip fashion statement. They think of everything, don't they?
And he even dropped his crutches and showed his injured finger to assure his fans that he's doing fine, he's always considerate and caring towards his family. Don't stick out too far, Yong Joon ssi, I am very tempted to grab and kiss it (now don't smack me :)
BTW, I also want to show E Ji Ah's own design, expresses a strong sense of herself. Notice she embroidered a word (which I still can't make out) with black yarn, then tied that to her index finger, how artsy and refreshing! This may not be everyone's taste but I like her for staying true to her own style.
And then there's Philip Lee, I think he dressed very hip in black vest and tie, perfect for a young actor.
Oh oh, I will have to continue the award ceremony in the next post as hubby just told me we have no more internet connection. The BIG MOVE for us tomorrow, remember? Will write later when I get a chance, ok? :)
