Memory of the Journey album


Hi Hi sisters .... am supposed to have lunch at Gosireh Fua in Lotte Hotel today, but didn't feel well therefore couldn't go, sob sob! Since I can't share that experience with you, maybe I can show you something else. I received this BOFi package a couple of weeks ago .....


Tada! It's the Bae Yong Joon Photo Album - 'Memory of the Journey' in search of Beauty of Korea. The name is quite a mouthful, huh?The left is the photo album, the right is the album pocket.

The size of this album is very generous - 22.5cm x 28cm, with over 75 pages of colored photo (quite a lot of them are close up shots too) @@ I hope it's ok to show a few samples here, hehe my shots are bad enough to be worth any reproduction anyway .. .....

See, if you can't read Korean or Japanese from his 'In Search of Beauty of Korea' book, this photo album is sort of like a 'pictorial substitute' (IMHO). By looking at the pictures, you can get a feel of his experience - his curiosity, his attentiveness, his sincerity - in this journey.

Hehe, sort of on the side : I always wondered about the sneakers that Yong Joon wore during his travel as I am curious how he could keep the white sole so clean?? Haha, now you know I am a clean freak too. I finally noticed the label on the sole in a picture that he sat down on the steps. It's the Lanvin hi-top suede sneakers 2008. Apparently these are highly sought-after fashion sneakers, hehe, much like its handsome owner :)
I know I know, I am silly enough to even look at the soles of his shoes! Hope you enjoy :)

Hi Jaime Onnie, glad to see you again. Very nice photos, you're really lucky to live there. so you can close with him and get information about him faster. I plan going to Japan and Korea next year. Probably not long, About a two weeks. I'm really curious about "Beauty of Korea" (and also Japan). And if I'm lucky I could meet him lolol. Komowoyo Jaime (lenny from Indonesia)

Hi hi alcy,

Hi Marce,

Thanks for your comment. please be patient with BYJ products and check yesasia.com, ebay, amazon and HMV website every so often. you may find something you like there, just not as up to date as in Japan.

love ... jaime

Hi, Jaime,

The "Memories of the Journey" is such a treasure to have. I don't think it's available elsewhere. May i ask how much is a copy?
