Double trouble!

Hi Hi sisters ....... Big news coming out from the Bae camp today! Our prince is finally going to (officially) show his handsome face after last May's TWSSG Premium Event in Osaka. This time HRH is coming to Tokyo and will appear in 2 major events in September (jumping up & down :) ......

Anime Winter Sonata - another story

Time : September 29 Tuesday @ 6pm
Place : Tokyo Dome

The big news is Choi Ji Woo and other WS stars will also appear on the same stage as Yong Joon. This will be extra special for Winter Sonata fans to see both JunSang and Yujin together again :) That also means both BYJ and CJW fans are competing for the same tickets, it's going to be one intense nail-biting anticipation again!

Beauty of Korea Publish Commemorative Event

Time : September 30 Wednesday @ 4pm

Place : Tokyo Dome

You know Yong Joon has poured his heart and soul (eyes & hands too) into this project and we can't miss to watch his beautiful face lights up when he talks about his book. But this really spells 'double trouble' for the Japanese fans! How on earth are we housewives going to come up with 2 legit excuses to sneak out on 2 consecutive school nights?! Boy, I will really have to be creative and original this time. How about ...... "the doctor needs to examine my right brain the first day, and then my left brain on the second?" or "errrr honey, there's a back-to-school sale on toilet paper tonight and a 'buy 1 get 1 free' special in Louis Vuitton tomorrow" and then you are gone for 6 hours!

Tokyo Dome has a capacity of 40000, I have a feeling that most sisters will want to see our handsome prince on both days (or even longer :) Fortunately both events will also be broadcatsed live via satellite in many cinemas across major Japanese cities. For our overseas sisters, please do not feel you're being left out. It looks like there will be an Event tour organized by DA Tours (remember Yong Joon's BOFi is merged with Digital Adventures in Japan?) but the details is still not published yet. Here are the links to these events in JOB :

Please stay tune for more announcement on ticket sales, event details and merchandise sales to follow. Hurray, we are finally going to hear from Yong Joon himself soon!

Thank you Joanne for posting the photos in Quilt and tomato san for the translation from JOB.

Hai, Jaime!

It seems like The Animation will be aired on October.
I am so happy that Jiwoohime will be joining our Yonsama in this fan fair.
It’s been a while.
I wonder how they look together to the fact that they have the same hair length.
He – he – he!

I’m really dying to visit Japan in those days.
But, my mom would not allow me.
Hu – hu – hu!

Enjoy yourselves, Bae sisters.
And, just take care of our prince.

Now, i too, must think of a way to convince my boss that i have an emergency "family"/personal matters to attend to..and i have exactly 2 months to ready myself for THIS!! C U girls in Tokyo!!!


jaime said...

Hi Carlette Jean,

You crack me up! Yonsama and CJW will have the same hair length :)
Hehe, wonder if he will cut his hair to match the anime?

Oh, so I guess your mommy is not a Yonsama fan, eh? Or she may be dragging you with her to Japan :) She probably has her reasons. Please be happy that there will be tons of vods and pictures of the events afterwards for you to enjoy.

Please take care!
love ... jaime

Yee said...

Dear Lady,

My trip to Japan will be in September, very sure.
Please include me in what ever activities you girls will be doing. I'll email you and cloudnine.
I'll contact my travel agent as soon as Khin comes back from NY, now she's in cloud ten with So Ji Sub.


jaime said...

Hi Hi chakachan,

I am so happy to hear that you are thinking of coming to Tokyo. Hehe, I don't know your boss, but sure hope he is the easygoing type. Yes, please let me know when you have decided. Please do check out the DA Tour link for any details (in Japanese though). Good luck!

love ... jaime

jaime said...

Hi dear Lady Yee,

Really? You are coming for sure?! So Yong Joon helped you decide huh? I am so excited, this will really be a family gathering :) I'll be waiting for your email.

love .. jaime

Hi jaime,

I am so happy that our Prince has finally decided to appear again in public events (not just one, but two) but I am also very sad that the events are not to be held in July. Yes, I am coming to Tokyo in mid July, will email you my itinerary when I get home tonite.

hello Bae Ladies,

Oh my oh my hopefully my work won't get in to my way......

I'm so excited!Jaime you have to watch I guess we need to set up a plan wat'cha think sisters!!!

Guess our sleeping beauties begin to get excited huh!


jenny said...

Dear Jaimie

Is indeed a great news, very excited abt it but can't attend cause need to travel to australia in early oct. No more leave sob sob sob. Only can glue in the net on that day. So you will be attending ?

It will be a great events cause ji woo will be there also. Never see them together for a long long time. Waiting news from u .

Thanks a lot


xiaoyi said...

Dear Jaime,
Ha ha... i like your excuses, but unfortunately, i can't use it here. Really do hope i could go to Tokyo to see YJ and at the same time visiting you too. Anyway, I guess I will just have to glue myself in front of the PC by then.
Take care.

Loves, xiaoyi

jaime said...

Hi Hi Ivy,

nice to hear that you are coming to Tokyo. guess you have already booked your ticket for July and can't change it to September? I'll be waiting for your email.

love ... jaime

jaime said...

Hi dear newbie,

you are also coming too?! How exciting! Which country do you reside in? You know DA Tour might probably offer packages (and most important tickets to the events) for overseas fans. I think that's what happened in TWSSG Osaka event. Some tickets are allocated by BOFi to the overseas fanclub and they arranged to come in groups. This will be one big family gathering :) Can't wait!

love ... jaime

jaime said...

dear jenny,

Yes, I guess some sisters already have other travel plans even though I think this time they do announce the events quite early. Hehe, don't worry, there will be tons of vods later.

So, you are going to Australia on business or pleasure? It's a beautiful and carefree country.

love .. jaime

jaime said...

dear xiaoyi,

I know, I am grateful to be in the city that Yong Joon visits a lot. I am not sure if I can get my hands on the tickets or not (you know how much in demand it is). But this time my heart has calmed down a bit and am willing to accept any fate (and I never have any luck in winning anything).

Hehe, as a mother of 2 young boys, I am sure you understand 2 nights in a row does pose a bit of challenge. But I think my teenage son is actually happy that I will not be there to nag him. I'll keep my fingers crossed :)

Please take care!
love ... jaime

Hi Jaime,

Can't believe my eyes when so many news regarding his visit to Japan suddenly surface yesterday. YJ is really so full of surprises. How I hope I can join all of you but I guess this is a very short notice for me. I will just stay glued to my notebook and wait for all your updates and news. I guess somebody has to take care of the baesites while all of you is enjoying your date with our HRH.


cArLeTtE jEaN said...

Hai, Jaime!

You’re right.
My mom is kinda against with my BYJ addiction.
Because, she thinks that I starve myself just to buy BYJ items (which is a little true, …e-he-he!).

Anyway, I remember Yong Joon said that he will cut his hair if he would have his next project.
If he’d consider this, I’m sure that BYJ sisters would love to see his new hair–cut.

Take care always.

jaime said...

Dear jelen,

I understand what you mean. I recall quite a few sisters are planning to go to Korea next year because Yong Joon is the tourism ambassador for 2010-1. This double events in Tokyo kind of throw some people's plans off.

As you said, I am sure a lot of sisters will be posting about it, just like the TWSSG event. Hehe, and then next year when you visit Korea, you can tell us your exciting experience in return, ok?

love ... jaime

jaime said...

Hahaha, you're kidding me, right? starving yourself? You must be a slim girl, do you know how many of us are dying to be slim like you?
No no, just kidding. What kind of Yong Joon goods do you buy? Being a mother myself, I also hope you feed your tummy first before feeding your eyes, hehe :)

You are so right, I re-read some news translation - it did say Yong Joon will appear to us in a new image during the events! Like you, may I dream it's the hair?

love ... jaime

cArLeTtE jEaN said...

Believe me, I am not fooling you around.
I even sacrificed my summer vacation allowance for my addiction.
I purchased six premium boxes of BYJ dramas and films all the way from Malaysia.
And, it’s for sure that my mom would get heart attack if she knew that the shipments were from overseas.
He – he – he!

On this day, it’s almost been two weeks since the first day of our classes.
And, my mom always hand me a lunch box so I won’t get hungry.
Actually, she doesn’t scold me much because she knows that it’s my money.
But, I still feel sorry.
That’s why, I did not insist going to Japan.
Hu – hu – hu!

Take care always.

Dear Jaime,
What do you think I tried to do?? A birthday gift.. ummmhh I'll be back after two nights and I'm still working on the third one. hehehe.
Anyway, I will surely buy the DVD this time. They said they will have it in English right?Soooo looking forward to it.
I have to rely on you for solid updates again. ;-)

Anonymous said...

Dear Jaime,

I will surely share with all of you my visit to SK next year. If only I've known about this event a bit earlier, I could have done something about it.Anyway, there is no use crying over spilled beans, so I'll just be happy with all the sisters who will be able to join the event. Good Luck to all of you and pls don't forget to update us.

I couldn't help reading your comment to Carlettle Jean, Will he really surprise us with a new image??? Hope too that it will be a new haircut.. I can't wait Jaime...Wish it's already September, hahaha...

Hi Jaime

Are you talking about the current news? I remember he said long hair was difficult to keep during his Osaka interviews. But he kept on maintaining his long hair.

So hoping his new look will be short unpermed hair and not long hair restyled. I don't know why but I feel his current long hair look pulled long and straight from his face makes his nose look bigger and his cheeks flat.

Hope you get good seats these 2 rounds.

Hi Carlette jean,

YOu have a loving and caring mom, a very lucky girl indeed. Those 6 premium boxes must be your treasure, enjoy! happy for you :)

love ... jaime

jaime said...

Dear Hyds,

I heard the WS Anime making DVD will be out in September prior to the event. probably will only be in Japanese and Korean. yes, I will record everything in my mind and heart if I am lucky enough to go, ok?

love ... jaime

jaime said...

DEar Jelen,

Yes, it's in the JOB announcement. I read it in both the original Japanese and verified it in Chinese translation, it says Yonsama will show us his new image in both events. Hehe but then, it can mean anything, like his new clothes or new eyeglasses. But I just feel it's a new haircut :) Do you think it's a possibility?

love ... jaime

jaime said...

Hi hi newbie,

you lucky girl, going to Hong Kong for 3 weeks?! It's such a vibrant city and I have so many people I love there. Seoul and Hong Kong are 2 great cities I have to re-visit before I return back to Toronto. Have fun!

love ... jaime

jaime said...

Dear S'pore fan,

Yes, as I replied to Jelen. This is the last part of JOB announcement yesterday regarding the events :


After 1 year 3 months long, BYJ will come to Japan officially and will appear in both events with new image. Please give him full support.

Hehe, what is new image? Am I reading too much into it? what do u think?

love ... jaime

Anonymous said...

Dear Jaime

Thanks for the translation.

Don't really know. He's unpredictable.

New image could merely mean his new persona as an author. But then, it wouldn't tie in with the 29 Sep meeting when he's still in his acting capacity.

So, probably means new physical appearance - new look in the way he dresses, hairstyle...

...i had a dream 5 days ago, jaime this is not a joke....i saw young joon in a coffin......dress with all black coat lying in a something like a tree.....its dark around but not in a place where he lies theres a fog up on him.....and no ones around.i dont wanna see it but i dont know whats it mean.....

jaime said...

Hi Anonymous,

Could it be that Michael Jackson's news was all over the place a few days ago? It's a dream, please do not worry about it. If you still feel uncomfortable, maybe you like to rewatch the happy portions of Yong Joon's dramas to replace that scary image? Hope you will feel better.
