Lee Young Ae

Dear sisters ..... Thank you so much for your kind concerns about my boy's eye injury, I am really grateful from the bottom of my heart. Hehe, let me try to sneak this in quickly which I wanted to post a few days ago. As you've probably heard, Lee Young Ae got married quietly last week in the States. To us BYJ fans, Lee Young Ae is the ex-wife Shiying, a female lead in Yong Joon's 1996 drama 'Papa'.

To Hallyu fans worldwide, Lee Young Ae is a big name on her own, contributing much to the spreading of Korean imperial and food culture. Even though I am not willing to sit through 54 episodes without a single image of BYJ in it, but we can't ignore that LYA's drama Dae Jang Geum (Jewel in the Palace) commands a much wider audience than Winter Sonata around the world.

Lee Young Ae is indeed a naturally beautiful woman - elegant, fresh, gentle and sophisticated. She is very highly regarded in her country as an actress with tremendous dignity and integrity. Similar in their style of self-management, both Yong Joon and Lee Young Ae are perfectionist, preferring 'quality over quantity' projects. As much as they are icons of Hallyu Wave, both are very low profile, do not participate much in public appearances and guard their privacy tightly. Unfortunately after Papa, we do not see them collaborate on another acting project. There was however a series of LG card CFs that captured this golden couple in their younger days ....

That bowling scene, they were having such fun :)

That shopping CF, what an elegant couple!

Hehe, how can we not love this sweetheart CF? I knew when I saved these captures that I will be able to show them one day :) Please enjoy this beautiful love story ........

Haha, I have to show his 'sexy killer look' in slow motion!

Happily ever after, may each with his/her own :)

Dear Jaime and Bae sisters:
May this message reach you and Sean in good health.
Thanks for the posting on Bae Yong Joon and Lee Young Ae. These are very precious refreshing photos that show their most unself-conscious selves before their iconic popularity. Lee Young Ae is a very admirable Korean/Asian actress, who stands for beauty, excellence and empowerment of women. May her groom and she have a happy marriage life!

Dear Lady,

LYA is my no.1 favorite actress like HRH is my no.1 favorite actor. And I love that sweetheart CF very much, I even saved on you tube in my favorites.
In our Korean dramas history, after Winter Sonata and Hotelier, Dae Jung Geum is our 3rd. drama (the first one without YJ) we watched and loved it very much. She became my favorite actress from then. At that time and for very long time Choi Ji Woo was my 2nd. favorite, now my 2nd. favorite is tie, E Ji Ah and Han Ji Min. CJW stepped down to the 3rd.
Do you know in which part of the States LYA's husband is from? Hope she doesn't quit her acting and comes here for good, on the other hand I wish her be always together with her hubby and enjoy marriied life.
Anyways, I wish her happy and successful married life.

P.S. Have to confess, sometimes I dream of her and HRH to get married, they are a perfect couple in every subject for me. ^^

Hi Jaime

Love the LG cf captures. Honestly, I've watched PAPA but didn't realise that Shiying was LYA. Thanks for the enlightenment :).

For Yee's info, I read in our local papers that LYA said she'd move to US but return to Korea for acting work.

Best rgds

My dear Jaime,

I hope Sean's eye condition is improving. I was very sorry to read about your tense moment the other day and the trials of the past week.

Those are wonderful pictures of YJ and LYA.

You must remember that while TWSSG was being broadcast in 2007 a summit between the leaders of South and North Korea was held - and even delayed the show by a week. At that time, South Korea's President made many gifts to the leader of North Korea, among them copies of both Dai Jang Geum and Winter Sonata. I recall reading a press report by Associated Press. They called LYA a "starlet". Imagine!! She has to be one of the classiest and most talented woman actor in the world.

Like Yee, I must confess harbouring a secret notion that BYJ and LYA would make a perfect couple.

¡Hola! Jaime, le deseo pronta recuperación a su niño.
Aquí en México estan televisando actualmente "La joya del palacio", es un drama excelente, pero creo que "Winter Sonata" que fué un éxito ha sido quien les a abierto las puertas a estos dramas.
Gracias por compartir tan bellas imagenes.
Que tenga un excelente fin de semana.
Con Cariño Cecy México.

Hope your son is doing better. It must be a real scare...I have a son too and I can only imagine.

Love love love Lee Young Ae. Through Dae Jang Gum and Lady Vengeance, I think she is extremely talented. I have no patience for historical dramas. Even though I am a fan of BYJ, I found Legend painfully long towards the end (please don't kill me all you fans). But with Lee Young Ae and Ji Jin Hee (*faint*) in DJG, I couldn't have enough and was sad to see it end.

Congrats to the beautiful, smart, classy and talented lady on her wedding. I wish her much happiness. :)

- Lee

Hi jaime,
Just read about your son's eyes. All he best wishes to him and share the feeling with you as a mother.

thanks for photos of LYA and our Bae. So beautiful!!! Both of them...
I have very special feeling whenever watch Bae photos, words fail me. The heart seems filled by a very sweet love by his eyes, his glance, his lips, his smile...
Totally agree with you that we can not find any one else as elegant as him.

Miss you and all sisters too.
Of course with the photos, miss Bae too much! waiting for his shows... for longs.

With love!

dear karen,

sorry for my late response. glad that you like LYA & BYJ's CF, they
look nice together, eh?

love ... jaime

jaime said...

Hi josephine,

Yes, LYA has very admirable characters, a female equivalence of our Yong Joon.

love ... jaime

jaime said...

dear yee,

me too, I really like LYA even though I have not watched her drama. I think I read that her husband graduated in Chicago, but don't know where they will live in.

Hehe, i have the same secret wish also!

love ..... jaime

jaime said...

Hi alcy,

really? you did not recognize LYA in Papa? I guess maybe she had too much makeup in Papa, the hair and clothes were not really her style?

With LYA's high requirements, I hope the script will be exceptionally good for her to consider returning to Korea :)

love ,..... jaime

jaime said...

hi dear gosijo,

Yes, I still remember us discussing about the gift of WS and DJG to N Korea :) Hehe, u 3? harbouring the same secret wish?
I guess it's not meant to be, sigh!

thanks for remembering my 2nd anniv. you are always so thoughtful! love ... jaime

jaime said...

hi Lee,

thanks for your kind concerns, my son is recovering fine. I hope LYA will have a happy marriage too.

regards ... jaime

Hi cecis joon,

Thanks for your kind concerns to my son. Are you watching DJG now? Have a feeling you like Winter Sonata more, right? Please enjoy!
