Hi Hi ..... As I was scanning through our handsome prince's pictures for my next post on 'Man of Style', I kept hearing these thunderous sparks outside my balcony. From the corner of my eyes, I even noticed the dark night was lit up in a rainbow of colors and sounds of helicopters circling the sky! Hehe no no, it's not World War III, it's the Jingu-Gaien Hanabi 神宫外苑花火大会 (outer shrine fireworks display) .
Now so what, there are hanabi every summer week in Tokyo, but but this one was VERY special. Our handsome prince actually appeared in a one minute video prior to the hanabi in front of thousands of audience introducing his book, Winter Sonata anime and his September visit to Japan @@

Congratulations on the 30th anniversary of Jingu-Gaien Hanabi. I heard that every year there is a large audience to view this hanabi. I also hope someday I can attend this with everyone.
At the present moment, I am writing a book introducing Korean traditional culture. In September, I plan to bring this book and the anime 'Winter Sonata' to visit Japan. I hope to meet everyone again with healthy image.
Please enjoy the hanabi today. Hope everyone will be as joyous as this hanabi, thank you very much!
Just a bit of latest info about this book order :
- It is officially called 韩国の美をたどる旅, I guess translating to 'Journey in search of Beauty of Korea'
- It is on order now in BOFi (www.BOFi.jp) and Nikkan Sports site (www.nikkansports.com)
- The book costs 2835 yen and will be delivered on 09/28
There is still no published pictures of the book or its cover. So there is a lot of questions on when the other language versions will be out (if any?), will the making DVD and pictures going to follow? Hehe in fact, I think I am more eager to see the process of our handsome prince creating the book than the travel book itself :) Hope there will be more info out soon.
