Playful Kiss Anniversary Special! (translations from tlbpc)

Happy anniversary Playful Kiss!

Been to Oppa/Dongsaeng couple thread, previously MinJoong (PK thread) @soompi and of course, the shippers are all happy and at the same time reminiscing PK. 
As a shipper, this thread keeps me happy and smiling always for all the posts written and shared by my fellow PKissers. They are always ready to share tidbits of infos, translations of videos for those of us who can not understand Korean or Chinese language. And of course very thankful to cheerko and tlbpc (special mention) for the hard work they are doing just for us shippers.:))


Just now another translations were offered and shared by tlbpc just to celebrate the anniversary of PK. From various videos she found interesting enough to share with us. 

Below are her posts. Worthwhile reading.:))

cre: tlbpc @soompi.com/oppa/dongsaeng thread

Thanks to Kyra, I get to watch a few videos and found some interesting stuffs which I can't help but eager to translate them from Chinese to English for sharing with fans here who don't read Chinese, especially since it has been one year already for the wonderful drama, Playful Kiss, that brought HJ and MinMin together.  We ought to thank God for it.  Do bear with me because I omitted some parts and only translate those that I think are more interesting.  
This was from a video on their celebration of completing the filming of PK where the beautiful family photo of SJ, HN and EJ was taken. 
Q: Haera and Hani two characters in comparison, what do you think?
HJ: Hani is Hani, as for the other Haera is also not a bad kid, I like both.  Doesn't matter who'd be my girlfriend, I also like.
Q: Last question, if you get married what are your thoughts? Which type do you like?
HJ: Possibly there will be someone who would want to marry someone like me, that's to be more stable, want to find that one and only girl.  But I'm a very unsteady (that's to say he's unable to commit whole heartedly still, keeps changing his mind
) person, if that's the case, if can be in love till death would be the best.
Now that we have heard what HJ said about marriage, let's hear what MM has to say.

From another video - the filming of JG going to propose to HaNi at the river bank scene.  LTS walked away leaving MM, and the camera-man talked to her.  Here they still call and refer to each other by their character names.
MM : Proposal
Q: How is it?
MM : Really want to get married
Q: Jun Gu or Seung Jo?
MM didn't reply but smile shyly
Q: Personally, not them as actors (How can she answer to this?)
MM: JG is very troublesome, if not being friendly to him, I would mind. (She didn't answer on SJ and walked away)

From another video - After the filming of MM and LTS's last scene together on the swings, TS interview MM and after that MM interview TS.  
TS: Now that the filmings has ended how do you feel about it?
MM: Very lonely....before that was very hard yet managed to persevere to the end
TS: What is most difficult ?
MM: Not enough sleep, if the physical condition is better would have performed better, it's quite a pity
TS: Which is the best HaNi scene?
MM: Many...the kiss in the rain scene is most memorable, my physical condition...filming in the rain, it was very hard and so unforgettable
TS: Is it because of the kiss with SJ?
MM (laughs) : No.....JG is so irritating!
TS: If possible which scene would you want to re-do?
MM: Not one but many I wish could do them again and do it better....some regrettable parts not done well enough and now looking back I still do mind about it
TS: SJ and GJ, what are their appeal?
MM: SJ and his external appearance is different, he has his cute side (I omit what she said of GJ)
TS: How many kissing scenes are there with SJ? .... turn around...yes then?
MM laughed and didn't answer.
TS: With the original author's character and your HaNi are they any difference?
MM: Slightly, I feel that HaNi is more realistic, from manga into a drama, feel that HaNi before SJ showed that she has the character to improve herself 
TS: Done the wedding scene, so when is the real wedding?
MM: Now you ask me, I don't know (laughs)
TS: 22 yrs old?
MM: But I thought of getting married before 30 but really don't know, when there's a suitable person that's when it would be the time.

Later during a part of LTS's interview, he was saying alot in answering a question on the hardship of filming PK
TS: ....like the entire cast of the drama everybody worked very hard, it's actually about individual's inner quality, HN and SJ has filmed throughout the night together many times, both worked very hard and just have to endure to complete it.
(How interesting isn't it these precious insights that I found?)

Here's part of the Osaka PK fan meet video-
MC: The following question seem very important, it's about tv drama PK:The audience feel that it's very difficult, the MC again asked about Japanese manga. 
This time it's MM's turn to find it very hard
HJ at the side kept repeating : Two Piece~~Two Piece~~Two Piece~~ (Was HJ hinting to help or misleading MM?)
HJ : One Piece
MM : Playful Kiss
HJ: one more time
MM: one more time
HJ: Actually it should be PK

MC: Korean singers
Both HJ and MM : SS501
MC: Because it's correct, so no recordings?
HJ: Amm(yes), not recording, but only today I know that SM know the name of my band so well (HJ very happy that MM know so much of his band...keke)

Just today, another new follower came up from my YT account, commenting on a video, very armature video I once did for my K-POP artists, Kim Hyun Joong with a background song Sometime, a beautiful melody from his former group, SS501(double S501). Seldom do I visit my YT account nowadays coz I am busy updating my 2K-blogs. But today, I decided to play some playlists I have there and was surprised by what I found out!

I do plan on making another fanvids but because it takes a lot of time and effort, and editing...I set the idea aside just for now.

Happy Anniversary...Playful Kiss and to our Oppa/Dongsaeng Couple!!! :)

A year already passed since Playful Kiss syndrome started. With all the updates I am posting, I really forgot to post this one...mianhne. 

Missing my favourite K-drama with my favourite couple, Oh Ha Ni and Baek Seung Jo, whose characters I really came to love. Not just watched it once but I did watched it for about 5 times, from episode 1 to 16, without skipping! Plus the 7 webisode @yt.

It became my energy booster whenever I feel down, just looking at both Jung So Min and Kim Hyun Joong brings a smile...a grin...and happiness to me. They were so cute and so perfect together I am wishing for a second season. Their story though light in the surface has  many positive values and viewers will learn specially the students for being diligent and patient like Ha Ni.

As for Seung Jo...well, this is the drama where I really noticed Kim Hyun Joong as a singer and as an actor. And his gorgeous looks! I watched him in BOF, but since he played only the second lead actor, I was not focused on him then. But it does not mean that I did not notice his appeal. He is one good looking, handsome, pure of charisma guy.

Well, so much for my ramblings...kekekeke...

Photos from Playful Kiss I love and some of my oppa/dongsaeng couple pictures that was already posted before but I will repost them. So what? I love both of them, whether Oh Ha Ni and Baek Seung Jo in PK or as Jung So Min and Kim Hyun Joong in real!

THE KISS...that started it all!

and leader drawing an eye..what he looks at in a girl...
(breakdown showcase)

of course..he said in the recent Tokyo FM that he finds So Min's eyes beautiful!:))
coincidence or what??!!

my stylish couple...

Who wouldn't be addicted to these two cute couple? Both having a great chemistry on and off the screen, with all the BTS for us to watch and spazz. They only not have great chemistry but they are comfortable around each other..with all the teasings...the dongsaeng's slaps/touch...oppa's  parry... the laughters..the smiles... cute alien talks(this one made me smile coz apparently, So Min can put up with leader's 4dness! and enjoying it!)...playing on the set with little Eun Jo as a shield..(remember the BTS where KHJ held Eun Jo's hands in a heart shape and throwing it at SM?  with papa Baek catching it for her!)kekeke..HJ telling SM he sleeps naked when it's really hot during their "sleep over shoot"...kekeke... (i wonder why he told her that!), the massage scene...So Min giving Hyun Joong a massage..very sweet of her  and many more!

Playful Kiss will always be my favourite!

[News Trans]The reason why Bae Yong Joon keeps the itinerary of his visit to Japan a top secret?

cre: Sports Seoul

reposted from suehan's byj blog

The reason why “Yonsama” Bae Yong Joon (39) keeps the itinerary of his visit to Japan a top secret?

Bae Yong Joon will be visiting Japan to attend the premium event of KBS’s drama “Dream High” which will be held at Saitama Super Arena on the fourth of September. About 17,000 of Japanese fans will be attending this event.

But his agency keeps his detailed itinerary, such as the entry and departure dates, a secret, and it has drawn attention. In response, his agency, Keyeast said, “He will be visiting Japan in about 9 months, many fans might come to the airport, so upon Japan’s request, we won’t release his schedule for safety reasons.”

Bae Yong Joon participated in the production and made a special appearance in the drama “Dream High” which was broadcasted in Japan on TBS and received a great response. It was ranked one of the 5th most popular Korean dramas which were aired in Japan. For this event, the main casts of “Dream High”, Kim Soo Hyun, Taeckyeon of 2PM and Suzy of Miss A will be attending with Bae Yong Joon.

On the other hand, SM Town Concert, where Girls’ Generation, Dongbangshinki, Super Junior, and Boa participate in, will be held at Tokyo Dome in Japan from September 2nd to September 4th. Japan will be red-hot with Hallyu fever this weekend.
