[09.12.29] Andy’s Asia tour ends amidst fans’ tears

Andy’s ‘2009 Andy Adieu Concert in Asia’, which began in Taiwan in November and moved on to Japan on Christmas Eve, drew to a successful close in Shanghai on 26th December.

During the concert, Andy showed off his masculine charm with ‘Single Man’, and his cute and lively side with ‘Only You’ and ‘Your Luv’. His popular hits ‘Propose’ and ‘Love Song’ underwent new musical arrangements and allowed the fans to experience the songs in a whole new way.

He even performed Yutaka Ozaki’s ‘I Love You’ and ‘Peng You (Friend)’ in Japanese and Chinese for the respective concerts, much to the fans’ delight. To show his gratitude to the fans, Andy read out a letter that he personally wrote for the fans, and turned the concert hall into a sea of tears as fans were moved by his words.

The 3-hour concert went on late into the night, but fans were reluctant to leave and chanted Andy’s name continuously before he came back onstage with 3 more songs. With that his unforgettable gift to the fans was complete.

Especially in China, fans followed Andy closely to the restaurant and the hotel, a clear testament to his popularity and also his status as a Hallyu star with his string of successful concerts in Taiwan, Japan and China.

Father’s House is a 2-episode SBS drama which airs from 28-29 Dec, starring Choi Min Soo, Baek Il Sub and Kim Soo Hyun.

Looking at teachers like Choi Min Soo and Baek Il Sub,
They’re always pushing themselves.

It’s been a long time since I saw a really good project, so I’m feeling really psyched.

[09.12.28] Dongwan’s blog: 2009 (main page updated)

When I was young
I lived my life in my own different way, and I was mocked and criticized by many people.
For most of these people
An airplane must have wings
And a car must have wheels
Are beliefs that cannot be discarded.

I told them
To move further towards the end of the pole
Without fail
‘If I fall and break my legs I won’t be able to do anything’
Was their reply to me.

So as time passed from tens of years ago until now
They have been sitting precariously on the center of the pole.
This is what they think life is about.

[09.12.28] Dongwan’s photolog: Christmas

As Christmas isn’t a national holiday in Japan
People still work on Christmas Eve.
Although I think Christmas Eve should certainly be a day of leisure….
The Japanese still enjoy Christmas enthusiastically.

Nevertheless I was happy to be in a hotel when I could hear the voices of children.

I’d be admitting defeat if I got envious, so I wasn’t envious at all.

Somehow I got drunk like crazy and woke up in Andy’s room..What happened last night….-_-;

I was having a really severe headache and heartburn so I found my way to the hospital and was put on the drip.
I’m a man who went to Japan and got himself put on the drip.
But the name of the clinic is TENTEKI 10~ㅋㅋㅋ

Today I came out clear-headed, had my meal, went for a stroll, and then had a cup of coffee with friends,

I saw a foreigner who was a crazy classic Chevrolet enthusiast.
For a while he kept running around and trying hard to take pictures of the car.
I would be like that too if I saw a vintage (Hyundai) Pony in Europe too…ㅎ

A really pretty puppy. In Japan puppies that are even bigger in size than this can be brought on taxis too. Wow~

In a park in Daikanyama where you can see the sunset clearly, after enjoying what’s left of the sunlight,

Your owner’s serious caffeine addiction has been etched onto the stomach..

I spent my last night at a bar which my friend is a regular of.
I just simply had a martini, and a Malibu liqueur with chamiseul (a kind of soju) on the rocks. ㅋ

I saw the statues of Jesus and his twelve disciples.
And in a bar at that….ㅜㅜ

[09.12.22] Lee Minwoo to hold last concert in Jan 2010 before army enlistment

Singer Lee Minwoo (30) will be enlisting for military duties early next year,and his final performance before his enlistment is set to take place next month.

According to his management company, a total of three shows titled ‘M’s Suite Room’ will be held over two days from 16-17 January at Ewha Women’s University. The theme is continued from his series of small theater concert performances in October this year, and he will take to a smaller stage to bid farewell to his fans.

His management said, “Lee Minwoo is known for his dance tracks and dynamic performances, and the small theater performances are to enable him and his fans to interact more closely. For this concert, he will be performing acoustic and unplugged sets with a live band.”

In line with the ‘Home Sweet Home’ theme of his smaller scale concerts, he had decorated the stage with long benches and fall foliage, as well as warm lighting to create a garden atmosphere for his last concert. This time round, for ‘M’s Suite Room’ he will be decorating the stage with couches and a bed to truly create the atmosphere of his bedroom.

As this will be his final performance before enlistment, fans from Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia and other Asian countries have inquired about how to obtain tickets for the shows and the organizers will be announcing the arrangements in details shortly.

Lee Minwoo says, “To remember this moment, and for the fans who have been waiting for me, I have made a lot of preparations and I will give it my best shot.”

Happy Holidays to ALL!!

Click on Santa, hope you love it!!!

[09.12.20] Dongwan’s memolog: How to use time. (in progress) [UPDATED POST]

‘eat til you die’ is just a metaphor to describe eating/drinking somewhat without control, recklessly

Updated portion is in black below…


You have to pay attention to the quality of sleep.
Most animals spend a much longer time being asleep than awake.
For example, pandas and koala bears are only awake for 4 hours in a day, for the rest of the time they are sleeping.
Human beings sleep about 6-7 hours a day and work for more than 10 hours a day..
In order to remain active while you’re awake you can’t slack on the quality of your sleep!

The recommended method for sleeping is that you must be asleep between 23:01 and 01:03.
[This is the sleeping time recommended by Western doctors and traditional Korean doctors.]
It’s good if you’re lying in bed anytime from 11pm onwards and before 1am.
Sleeping on time for 5 hours, compared to sleeping for 8 hours from dawn onwards, is better for health.
Try it and you’ll know it~


Fix your own rules for drinking.
The culture that prevails in Korea is to ‘eat til you die’.
Which means ‘If I drink til I die then you must drink til you die too’.
How wrong can this behavior be….
Drink selfishly.
Drink only when you want to..
Drink only as much as you want to.
Because since time immemorial, in order to be healthy one has to work out a plan and follow it…

Looks like James Cameron is a big fan of Hayao Miyazaki too.
Although it clearly feels like he got his inspiration from Japanese animation.
But without any sense of negativity it’s so perfect…. And it was a beautifully brilliant 2 hours and 40 minutes.

After the movie ended I could hear applause all around me.
Although usually I’d think ‘Hoho these are really emotional people…’ when this happens.
But unknowingly I followed suit and applauded too..

What the hell.

And THIS, my dear friends, is one of the reasons why their album releases always get delayed…. Oh these perfectionists… (actually, I totally agree with Su-mi. these guys will always find fault in their own works…. well, i can’t complain, they really value the fans time and effort (especially money) they spend to support their projects )

Version 1, or 3, depending on how you look at it….

On a day while the whole world has moved into the white winter,

He is waiting for you.

Do you still remember the romantic garden party in the front yard of Minwoo’s home during autumn?
Leaves floating on the colorful water, with the clear autumn breeze blowing.

Please look forward to it.
Chatting away in Minwoo’s room that’s filled with the fragrant aroma of hot tea
And the music that’s just like magic.

Memory [memori]
M Lee Minwoo.

But the reason why we won’t be sad during the wait
Is because we have the beautiful memories that we’ve created together.
Please wait!
For the most beautiful man on stage, M Lee Minwoo.

[09.12.04] Netizens most want to see Jo In Sung, Haha and Eric back from military service

Jo In Sung is the star that netizens most want to see back from the army, according to a poll by music site Bugs.

Recently NRG members Chun Myung Hoon and Noh Yoo Min, as well as actor Chun Jung Myung, have just been discharged from the army, and fans are anticipating their return to showbiz.

Jo In Sung, having won the hearts of female fans as one of the top leading men in Korea, topped the poll with 32% of the votes. Jo In Sung enlisted to the airforce in April this year, much to the reluctance of his fans who remain passionate in their support.

In 2nd place is MBC’s Infinite Challenge member Haha, who just broke up with longtime girlfriend An Hye Kyung in October, while Shinhwa leader Eric takes 3rd spot. In addition to his outstanding rapping and dancing skills, Eric has also gained popularity as an actor and CF model. He is currently serving his army stint as a public service officer. Fans meanwhile are waiting out for him to serve out his stint, and “hope to see his charismatic self soon”.

Balladeer Sung Shi Kyung takes 4th place, Koyote’s Kim Jong Min is in 5th place while singer Lee Ki Chan takes the number 6 spot.

click to know more about Shin Eun-Ha

On the 1st December episode of SBS talkshow ‘Strong Heart’, Andy talked about his love at first sight experience with a female doctor who resembles actress Shim Eun Ha.

“I had a drink with some friends and after that we went to a sauna, but I cut my toe when I slipped and had to go to the ER. A female doctor with looks comparable to celebrities attended to me, and she belongs to my ideal type.”

“And because I was drunk I didn’t even take any anesthetic shot and got my wound stitched up. But it didn’t hurt at all because I was so glad just looking at her face, and I wrote a note on the coffee cup with my contact number and got my friend to pass it to her.”

“A few days later I received a text message from her telling me to return to the hospital for treatment, and I thought I succeeded, so I wanted to take her out for dinner.” But Andy got a shock when he received her reply, “Can I come with my husband? He’s an Andy fan.”

“I had no other option but to say ‘Come along with hyung’.”

Other guests on the episode were Jo Hye Ryung, Hwang Hye Young, Kim Kyu Jong, Heo Young Saeng, Danny An, Hwang Bo, Alex, Horan, Hong Kyung Min etc.

Your father
Occasionally would think of the times when eating a raw egg on the meal table
Has the same taste of luxuriously eating an entire chicken.

But young people.
Who don’t need to work until they break their backs, sitting at the cafe.
Gulping down coffee that cost 30,000 a cup.
In what kind of a mood do they drink with.

Lee Oi-soo in ‘Youth Is Invincible’

I too, over the weekend
Had a cup of Rooibos tea that cost 8,000won
And a blueberry & vanilla waffle that cost 12,000won.
But when I read these words.
I couldn’t help but to feel ashamed….

I didn’t write these words myself
I just reposted these words as a memo to myself~^_^
I’m only 30 years old now..ㅎ

Shin Hyesung - Sapporo photobook

click on pictures to see more of Sungie's

Source: Su-mi@absolutshinhwa
Director: James McTeigue
Starring: Jung Jihoon (Rain)
Released: 2009 U.S, 98 minutes
Rating: *****

Thanks to Jung Jihoon, Korea has a superhero too.
While you’re absorbed into the character of Raizo
You can’t tear your eyes off for even 1 second.

There’s no need to be upset over why he’s playing a Japanese samurai.
Because in fact it’s the Japanese who are upset that in a ninja film made in Hollywood
A Japanese actor wasn’t cast.

Christmas poster giveaway for Hyesung fans (and fans-to-be) in Singapore!

note from Su-mi:

OK – I think we’ve got some great suggestions on how to get Hyesung’s (and the other members’) names and music out there etc…

But for this particular project, Nicole (iluvhyesung) – in her final year at school – is handling this birthday project all by herself for the Singapore region whereas in other regions they have fanclubs to manage this… so I guess it’s pretty obvious that it isn’t as easy as it seems. So props to Nicole for this!

Having said that, I believe such projects don’t have to be limited to their birthdays and festive holidays. So while I won’t be able to spearhead any of such projects myself due to time and resource constraints, if anyone is keen to organize any Shinhwa-related project I’d be glad to post an entry about it to help promote the project. All you have to do is to send me the details of your project at absolutshinhwa@gmail.com .

In any case, just an update on the number of posters, we’re down to 14 copies of the “Vol.3 Side 2 Keep Leaves” poster, so please contact Nicole asap if you’re still interested in getting a copy of the poster.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

One of Hyesung’s Korean fansites, ForeverHS (http://www.oasis79.com/) has organised a “Hyesung’s Birthday Project” to spread Hyesung’s music around the world and rather than collecting money or presents for Hyesung, ForeverHS thought that one of the best ways to help Hyesung would be to organize an event that will help to spread his music to more places.

Thus, ForeverHS has collected donations of Hyesung’s CDs and posters from Hyesung from Hyesung’s fans and packed them in packages to send to fanclubs in Philippines, China, Taiwan, Singapore etc.

The rep for Singapore is Nicole (better known as iluvhyesung to most of you ) and she has received a package that includes Hyesung’s CD albums and posters donated from the Korean fans at ForeverHS but as the CDs are going out at the speed of a comet, right now only the POSTERS are up for grabs now:

Hence, if you live in SINGAPORE and are interested in the following…

-14 copies of the “Vol.3 Side 2 Keep Leaves” poster
-1 copy of the “Vol.2 The Beginning, New Days” concert poster

…please email Nicole at hyesung_nicole@yahoo.com.sg as soon as possible…

I believe the posters are also flying off very quickly so do be fast!

Though you may not know the names
Of the flowers that bloom in the hills
Do not think that they are all weeds.

You are special.
This is the reason why you live.
