Today is a fateful day in my Bae journey, it’s probably one of those days that will be remembered and being related over and over again to other Bae sisters. No, I haven’t fast forwarded my calendar to June 1 yet. Today I am meeting our princess bb for the very first time!
Now we all know happiebb is probably one of the most famous BYJ fan around – not only that she is the fastest and most reliable source of Yong Joon news. She has also contributed so much to Yong Joon’s literature with her brilliant writing and translation skills. But despite of all these credentials, happiebb means something more to me.
Almost 3 years ago when I discovered about this amazing Korean actor called Bae Yong Joon, ‘happiebb.blogspot.com’ kept coming up again and again in all the articles and news that I read. Back then, I hardly even had the skills to navigate through pages of a website, let alone knowing what a blog is. But when I started reading the interesting posts in bb’s blog, I found out more and more about this man and fell deeper and deeper in love with him. Simultaneously, I also got addicted to bb’s daily updates (be it about BYJ or her thoughts). Not only is her writing brilliant and witty, her ideas fresh and cute, her personality charming and easy-going, her blog is like a haven for new fans. Being the reserved and ordinary me, I felt too self-conscious to have anything worthy to add to the already bustling Bae world. It is the warmth and hospitality in bb’s blog that invited newcomers like me to walk the Bae journey hand-in-hand together with all other sisters. Without her welcome and encouragement, I would never dare to enter a single word in the internet, let alone writing and starting my own blog.
I heard a lot about princess bb – pretty, smart, quick, friendly, independent …… but I have to tell you, like our HRH, camera really doesn’t do justice to her beauty. She is one very stunningly beautiful lady in person. The princess was fashionably late for an hour (em hm!), I could spot her right away among the crowds. She was wearing a black & white print silk dress with black boots, very cute and hip. She has got this long, dark, straight, smooth hair hanging like a cascade of silk threads behind her back. But her eyes! Omigosh! She has the most beautiful pair of eyes – big, round, crystal clear (actually brownish amber) with long curly lashes. They glisten like they are talking to you. I always thought her voice is lower and louder, but princess actually has a sweet voice that speaks like a nightingale. Her bright sunny smile gives her entire face a fresh glow that radiates warmth to the people around her. No wonder she blogged about the taxi driver in Jeju said she’s like a flower :)
It’s funny that you’ve never met this person before, but standing in front of me, this girl didn’t seem like a stranger to me at all. Like her blog personality, she’s honest and straightforward but not blunt nor intimidating. She is quick to share her opinion but also willing to listen to yours. She seems to be busy handling 10 things at the same time but is still very much aware of her surroundings. After spending half a day with her, what comes to my mind is : Yong Joon, don't you know your perfect wife candidate is among your fans? She’s beautiful, intelligent, educated, sociable and most importantly – the girl is totally in love with you!
P.S. Hehe, I’ll leave the day’s activities to bb as she probably has better (brighter) pictures than mine.
