Everything becomes him

Good morning sis ..... I read a comment in baidu that I really like, so I can't resist reposting it here :

他在的时候,他是一切;他不在的时候,一切是他…… by 6821后座

When he's here, he becomes everything;
When he's away, everything becomes him .....

Dear Jaime abd BYJ sisters:
So the professional journey of Bae Yong Joon through Carl Jung's four archetypes of lover in First Love, Have We Truly Loverd best in Winter Sonata, warrior in Barefoot Youth and (hunter and road) warrior in Hotelier, magician as artist/writer/architect in Papa and even in Winter Sonata, has culminated in all three aspects getting fully integrated as King in the Legend. The playful but shrewed prince is also artist playing a flute and warrior playing medieval polo. There is also a correspondence in women. In the Legend, Moon So-ri is the magician and Lee Ji Ah is the warrior: both women are the King's lover as a Gandalf figure in the first episode and an urban legend towards the end episodes. At the end he is complete to himself;he does not need any lover. He is both yang and yin, a Bodhisattva with long hair and decolletage
T-shirts guiding all towards Nirvana. This is why Bae Yong Joon appeals to almost all women, youth and even metrosexual men, because there is the seed of all four facets in him as actor and man, that continue to flower and bloom with integritas, consonantia and claritas.

Hi Jaime,

Oh it's sooooo hot today, isn't it?
LA sisters are also burning due to his visit to the beauty parlor in K. town there. I posted the translation of the posts from Quilt on JOB and baba-san, snowflake left the messages to my post. Yeah, they are all so excited about the news and wishing Yong Joon will visit many places in the west coast such as Napa Valley for wine. I have no idea what 'cc' is doing now.

Thanks Josephine for sharing your findings. I find the 4 male archetypes actually fit very nicely with the discussions that BYJ has many contrasting characteristics like gentle yet strong, tough on himself yet considerate to others, which makes him so attractive as a human being. It's always interesting to read your opinions.

Please take care!

love ... Jaime

dear cloudnine,

Yes, the summer heat has finally arrived in Tokyo. I am a little worried as I still remember how unbearable it was last summer. We decide that worse comes to worse, we'll just hide in our home and have lots of cold drinks to keep cool :)

Yes, I hope the LA sisters will have a chance to see him. And looks like they are pretty resourceful so far :)

Dear CC, if you are reading now, this is your dream come true, isn't it? Please let cloudnine and I know how it goes, ok? Miss you!

love ... Jaime

Dear Yongsamasites:
Just as there are four main archetypes in man, there are four main archetypes in woman -- also the magician, or archeype of magus in occult spirituality, the main example of which is Moon So-ri; the warrior, the best example of which is Lee Ji Ah; the lover, which is exemplified by all the leading ladies of Bae Yong Joon in all his television drama and movies, but the most ideal of which is Choi Ji Woo in Winter Sonata. Bae Yong Joon is lucky in so far as he has been paired off with the most beautiful and talented actresses in Korea. But none of them reach the level of complete wholistic integration, none of them become Queen; because the Queen is not in here, but out there, in persons, in the actresses, in you and me, among the fans and admirers of Bae Yong Joon. It is really very wise on the part of the scriptwriters and directors of Bae Yong Joon, or perhaps it is the instinct of Yonsama himself. Sarang Hamnida.
