Sleepless in Tokyo


Hi Hi sisters ..... can't believe I am actually up and blogging. I really should be sleeping snuggly in my warm soft bed, but there seems to be a thousand things running through my mind (and you probably know where this is coming from). It's been cold and rainy for the past week in Tokyo, last night it was even reported the 'choum' snow fall this winter! Sure makes me miss our Yong Joon even more. Hope everyone will stay safe and warm, spring obviously hasn't arrived yet.

I have kept a few rare Winter Sonata pictures which I'd like to show you. They are not behind-the-scene pictures, have you seen them before?
I think this scene was flashed for 1 second - it's Yujin's imagining they went to visit her father's grave.

I'm sure a lot of us are wondering why this dreamy scene never made it into the drama-proper? It's quite cute with both their long legs dangling, hor?

I love how playful and natural MinHyung was with the sofa cushions while decorating his new home :) Hehe, this picture gives me a thought that he himself loves soft cushy stuffs in real life, hehe like a baby!

Hehe actually, we have seen this scene of MinHyung leaving the hotel just before his 2nd TRUCK accident. Sigh, figure the man had learned some road-crossing rules already from his first lesson?!

Good night, now I'm really going to try to get my beauty sleep :)

Hi Jaime,
This is my first message to you but have been following your blog since you wrote to Quilt before having your own blog. You're very gifted, humorous and quick witted. I enjoy your blog a lot. I heard form a sister in Tokyo that BYJ is in Tokyo now. There are dozens of fans waiting for him outside Gosireh everyday. You should check it out.

Dear Jaime

Thank you. Thank you. For giving us such lovely photos to look at during this drought.

I like him with his short hair and brighter clothing. I don't mean "loud" bright. The colours you've shown in your last 3 posts are just right. I don't like the dull colours and hairstyle in his SKY Perfect interviews.

Hope you finally have the chance to see him. Please send him our best wishes.

I really wish he will start on a new drama while waiting for Drops of God to materialise.

I'm one of those who prefer him not to play an anti-hero. Because, I cannot bear to rewatch. Something like Frank Shin where he eventually turns good will be preferable. But not if he's too busy. Don't want to stress him.

Regards
S'pore fan

Dear Jaime,

I rushed here to let you know the "news" which you already know (at least by reading all other sisters' messages before me). Any way, Good Luck. May the dream come true.

Hope you already had a good sleep when you read this.

yudi said...

I wish he will start on a new drama as well, because then he may have to cut his hair, I miss him in his short hair so much.

Dear Hyds,

Please take care of yourself and rest a lot. It's easy to be sick in spring. Hope the new Face Shop pictures will brighten you up :)
Have a nice day!

jaime said...

Hi Anonymous,

thank you for your kind words, I don't deserve it. It's nice of you to write me a message.

Yes, it's official now, both KOB and JOB announced that he's in Japan. Thanks for the tips, I appreciate it :)

love .. jaime

jaime said...

Hi Hi Wing,

thanks for your encouragement. as you can tell from the time, it's another sleepless night for me! I will turn into a panda soon :)

love .. .jaime

jaime said...

Hi Hi Regie,

Nice to hear from you. hehe, Coming from an artist, you also notice the imbalance in that bridge picture? I think it's that imbalance and the misty shot that makes it so attractive, eh?
Please take care!

love ...jaime

jaime said...

Hi Hi Jenny,

Yes, I sure need more than luck to BUMP into him on the street :) But the chance is 1 in 26 million (population in Tokyo)?! Thanks for your kind wish!

love ... jaime

jaime said...

Hi Lin Chen,

Yes, let's wish and pray too. We need both to see him :) Thanks for your kind words. please take care!

love .. jaime

jaime said...

Hi HI chakachan,

I am very happy for you that you got your own Joon Bear. You are lucky to have a cousin living in Japan so you can have unlimited supply of Yong Joon goods :) I will miss all these so much when I leave.

Hehe, your Nihongo is not bad either, probably better than mine :) you're in asia, i suppose?

love .. jaime

jaime said...

Hi Hi S'pore fan,

Seems like Yong Joon still favours his basic black & white. I guess it's really easy colors for mix & match :) We hope he will act in a drama w/ a great love story :)
thanks for dropping by!

love .. jaime

jaime said...

HiHi yudi,

thanks for rushing here to tell me! you're so sweet :) hehe, I guess it's hard not to know when there're so many hints dropped here & there about that autograph on Feb 26. I think Japanese fans are really trying to protect him by not spreading the news last week. Thanks & please take care!

love .. jaime

Hi, Jamie!

The pictures of both their long legs dangling are new for me! And I don't remember the one in which two of them go to the grave together, so I'll try not to miss it since I 'm rewatching and just finished the cute cushion scene you mentioned. After 4 years I found there were some scenes I forgot.

I think he learned some road-crossing rules from his first lesson. The second truck accident had occured when he saved Yujin who desperatetly ran after him and crossed the road.

It's a pity coz it caused the accident but in a way I feel good to see her behaviour after she was given the CD with a note saying " I can't give you a tape like Jung Sang but..."by MinHyung for his farewell. She'd been waving between MinHyoun and Sanhyuk for a long time and that made me feel irritated a little. But look at the scene Yujin pushed Sanhyuk away without hesitation when he tried to stop her chasing MinHyung!

Always enjyoing your posts,
Yoko

jaime said...

Hi Yoko,

sorry for my late reply. You are so observant. Yes, I was happy too when Yujin finally pushed SangHyuk away and chased MinHyung back. I just can't stand her forcing herself to marry a man she doesn't love. Happy watching or have you finished already?

love .. jaime
