Hi Hi sisters ...... thank you for writing back to me in the last post and thank you princess for mentioning in your blog. You know, it was really a joyous day for Yong Joon and his family. So many of our blogging sisters are recording this memorable event : of course our princess bb, the ever diligent xiaoyi and liezle, our elegant camille and flowerbossa. The last time I saw him looking this radiant and happy was that MBC award last December. Especially when you compare his appearance from the Ambassador Event last Tuesday, can u see the difference?
Hehe, as if he is walking into an examination center?
Hehe, he's practically sliding into the hall :)
He looked so out of his 'elements' in that Ambassador Event. Of course he was still distinguished-looking and every bit deserving to be an ambassador for his country, but his uneasiness from within showed through, eh? Our pure and sincere prince really could not lie, it seemed like his thoughts were so far apart from these politicians ......
His eyes gazing to a faraway place .....
Hehe, our prince had been starring at this event program for so long, bet you he can even recite it backwards now :)
Hehe, see how naughty his smile was while walking to receive his award @@
His ever-so-sweet and gracious smile waiting patiently :) WHAT?! Now when was the last time our prince had to wait for his turn???
Actually eventhough these 2 ceremonies were both government-driven events related to promoting Korean culture. To Yong Joon, besides being an honour, the Ambassador Event was also an appointment of an official role to promote tourism. Now with the appointment also comes responsibilities and demanding engagements. As I mentioned before, this is a tall order and he's definitely treating this very seriously.
With his plate already being so full, our prince was probably thinking to himself, "Now where do I find time to fulfill my '3-year promise' to my family?" And honestly, even though Yong Joon is a great communicator (and a charmer too!), I wonder if he feels comfortable mingling with those bureaucrats for the next 4 years.
Comparatively, this Cultural Award is a recognition of his accomplishment and establishing a place for him forever in the cultural history of Korea. As a patriot, he must feel very gratified and proud that he can honour his family name.
Aiyo, look at that boyish smile and cute posture, don't you want to give him a big congratulatory hug?
Hehe regardless, this has been a very joyous week for Yong Joon and his family. We are never far from his thoughts, at good times and in bad. He always share his joy with his family and even credited these achievements to us! Now, how can you not love this handsomest Ambassador in the world!
