JYP Responds to Tweets

Wondering what that sound was last night? It was me, fan girl screaming, because I had just gotten a reply tweet from JYP. That’s right, Park Jin-young, CEO of JYP Entertainment and producer of Wondergirls and 2pm/2am among others (including discovering a certain person who we are all biased to) took the time out of his unbelievably busy day to respond to me. JYP!

Siwon Spreads the Love to His Fans with Daily Tweets

Super Junior's Siwon in London with fans!

I don’t think there’s a better communication tool for celebrities to keep in touch with their fans than Twitter. Super Junior’s buff, handsome 24-year-old member Siwon Choi is known for being a physically affectionate, lovable guy. And it is certainly no surprise if you’ve been following him on Twitter. He tweets daily to keep in touch with ELFs and fans, and always manages to spare a cute picture or positive encouragement. But in the past few days, during a trip to London, he’s been teasing his fans, and I don’t know about you, but I’m sure it’s just what fans need for a smile, or a pick-me-up:

im in incheon airport now. go some where. let you guess. It’s going to be fun.”
“ate too much. beautiful street. i can feel splendor here. lovely place here. Let u guess where i am :)”
“Hello amazing city London! Let’s make beautiful time with me. find me now ;P”
“i will kiss you, if you catch me.”

He also tweeted a picture of himself this morning after a fresh shave (see right image). BWLB thanks you Siwon, for keeping your corner of the world bright with sunshine and love. Start following @siwon407 for his daily tweets and pics. You’ll be happy you did! ^^

Nichkhun Plugs “The Help”

Just another reason why he is one of my favourite people in K-pop! Today, 2PM’s Nichkhun carried on a brief Twitter conversation about race and discrimination with his friend @peach_pachara, and ended with suggesting that he watch “The Help”, a 2011 film depicting life for 2 African-American maids who serve white employers during the U.S. Civil Rights era. See below.

I am ashamed to say that I haven’t seen this movie yet. I simply haven’t had the time to go to the theatre, but I’m going to take Khunnie’s suggestion and see it ASAP. I’ve heard rave reviews about it from just about everyone who’s seen it, so no more excuses boab81!

Real Asian Men Dont Come with English Subtitles

I wanted to share my “personal k-drama” experience with you all. This is just some random insight on my interaction with a total FOB (fresh off the boat) Korean guy who has been living here for 8 months studying English. I have lots of Korean friends from Korea but they have lived here for a few years so communication is easy. A lot of you might not know this but I actually volunteer helping Korean students perfect their English skills. However this was the first time I’ve gone on a date with a Korean who is FOB. Sooo here we go with my observations and experiences!

Texting simple English is best because too much is like over load.

Honestly if I didn’t know as much Korean as I do, the whole communication situation would be extremely frustrating for both of us. We flip-flop back and forth between English and Korean pretty much during every conversation.

Just like you see the Idols getting extremely shy when they are complimented so does he ^_^

Yes he likes it when I say “oppa”.

Koreans have a thing with comparing girls to animals; remember Heechul saying that one chick looked like a poodle because she had curly hair? Well I was told I have eyes like a Shih Tzu

  • The size of my eyes are a big deal to him. He loves that I have double lids and that they are “doll-like” along with being similar to a dogs -_-

As if you havent already realized Koreans like good skin. He talked about my skin ALOT and even rested his hand beside mine and said we are about the same color but that I’m only a little darker. It was so random yes, but honestly it wasnt about the color of my skin as much as it was about the condition of my skin. No matter what “shade” you are just take care of it. Keep it smooth and looking fresh! We actually did talk about face masks and what not. It was somewhat weird how he noticed things dare I say American guys don’t reallllly notice.

You know how in dramas they are dominant? Well he was no different telling me the night BEFORE the date to only look at him. He refused to acknowledge status not because he’s in America but because he likes me, so there is no way he’s calling me “noona”.However I continued to remind him kindly that he is my dongsaeng by using “ah” at the end of his name which is what you say when someone is younger than you. Older is “shi” for reference. (Hey you gotta put a guy in check some how rightt?!)

We’re all familiar with the Korean weight loss nonsense right? Well of course he sat there and explained that he wants to lose weight because he’s getting fat; meanwhile he’s tall (6 feet actually) and slim but has good thighs and arms and a totally defined Jaw line. Sooo I had to let him know he was talking crazy and that he should actually eat a burger.

You know the stalker-ish/obsessive personality traits the men in dramas seem to have? Well he was no exception. Last friday is when we exchanged numbers. Friday night is when the texting began and has not stopped. It’s actually overwhelming especially because he is really open about his feelings. On my date he told me that he wants me to see him “as a man” and then he said he liked me in Korean (MAJOR K-DRAMA MOMENT). He’s already planning skype conversations when he goes back to Korea, Bike riding along the Han River when I visit in the summer, wanting me to date only him when I actually move to Korea which is a freakin year and a half away! Me getting along with his unnie and oh the best one was he doesn’t want me going to Ktown anymore because there are too many Korean guys there. Totally k-drama leading guy out of control intense activity going on!! BTW I’m not going to sit here and say that’s how every single Korean guy is because it’s not, but it is actually common so be prepared!

So what I realized is..yes alot of the cliché’s about what they like are true. Those “k-drama moments” we all love are actually weird and awkward even overwhelming at times. Over all it was fun and I’ll keep seeing him till he goes back to Korea which is at the end of January. However I’ll keep going to Ktown and I will not be looking only at him. Also he wanted my twitter and even a link to the blog PSSHH YAHHH RIGHT WITH THAT MESS! Funny thing though, you all know how I’m Team Kim Hyun Joong/Jae Joong? Well he’s Team Rain! He freakin loves Rain….go figure!

Anyone else have a similar experience with an Asian guy?
