(tomato: this is an excerpt from the posting.)

I have received latest updates on Bae Yong Joon-san, I would like to inform you a bit about it today!
Bae Yong Joon-san has recovered to do light exercise these days.
Bae Yong Joon-san had always worked on his body, and now he is avoiding muscle training and taking up light exercise like Indian “yoga” focusing on rehabilitation.
… as I heard this episode, Bae Yong Joon-san and “yoga,” doesn’t it sound graceful?

[Ferrari Report]

I’m talking about YJ’s car.
I looked through the inside of his car thoroughly while he was away. I was almost attached to his car, but resisted to touch it.

Todaktodak nim might have been embarrassed to see me doing that; she wasn’t near me.

I just wanted to know what was inside of his car.

First, there was dust on his car.
Well, he drove down here from Seoul. It was possible.
But, haha
Even the dust on his car looked different to me.

There was no paper,or even a coin in his car even though he came down from so far, Busan. It is interesting because the average man generally brings something when they drive long distances. Shouldn’t there be at least coins, papers or even a cup?

No ornament was there.
It looked like it just got released from the factory.
And then I noticed one item
It was a small cosmetic tube.

I could only find that tube after I looked thoroughly inside of his car over ten minutes.

(from comment section)

boonseongbae: Oh.. It looked like there was confusion while he was parking his car. There was a parking attendant using a rough dialect of Gyeongsang-do. He said that, in the beginning, he didn’t know that it was Bae Yong Joon, so he said, “No, no, not there, here, over there..” with an irritated voice.

todaktodak: Hahaha, I heard that man bragging about commanding the indubitable Bae Yong Joon, “Do this, do that”, to his colleagues.

Another fan’s account in Busan. (Apr 17th, 2011)

translated into English: suehan


With lost hope from tweets about YJ’s whereabouts last night, I went to a cod soup restaurant which I visit once or twice a week with my fellow fan. I took the heavy “A Journey in Search of Korea’s Beauty” which I have been taking every time I visited Seoul.

I even had a lukewarm reaction to my regular restaurant owner’s joking. I had no taste of that delicious food.

Can’t we seen him, sis? Let’s go home after the meal.

We gave up our clever, empty dream and decided to leave the restaurant. I felt better as I gave up.

We walked down the hill comfortably after we gave up everything. Then.. there was a Ferrari down the hill. It was a Ferrari! Isn’t a Ferrari, sis? I ran down the street towards a Ferrari trying to look for a parking space. YJ placed his arm on an opened window because of his hopeless parking situation and his nice, soft hairs were scattered by the wind like in the romance cartoons. Am I dreaming? I dared to approach to him and watch him from the corner. YJ had a short conversation with a parking lot attendant. Then he thought for a short period of time, left his car on the street, got out from the driver seat (leaving his passenger inside), and walked inside of the restaurant. Did he grow more? He looked tall. When he disappeared, then, I looked at the one in the passenger seat. Woman? It was a tall, handsome, young man.

YJ came out from the restaurant, got on his car, and parked his car with the guide. Looking at the car zigzagging, in front of his car, I was speechless. We interfered his parking. I don’t think YJ didn’t realize that two women who interfered his parking were his fans. I didn’t think we’re going to have a chance to see him zigzagging, having trouble parking his car backwards. He parked his car too close to the potted plant. I wondered how he could get out from his car because the space (between his car and the potted plant) was very small. He opened the door, hit the potted plant a little, and got out from his car nicely. He went inside the restaurant with his company in the passenger seat, who was as handsome as entertainers. We couldn’t talk to him, but we were just looking at his back.

Here are the comments which I posted on boonseongbae’s posting.

It was a very nice moment shaking hands with him, getting his autograph and having eye contact with him. But it was more impressive looking at him going inside then returning to his car for parking problems, and getting on his car again. He looked like he was in his twenties. I was so happy for having an accidental meeting at the same time and place. While we were waiting for him, parking attendants approached us. Yonsama? No.. We said, “Yes”, but It seemed like they didn’t believe us. No.. Did Yonsama drive down here without security guards? We said that it was possible. They said that he was really handsome.

He was wearing beige semi-baggy pants, tight shirts with his sleeves folded halfway on top of t-shirts, vest or cardigan with half sleeves, a beige backpack on his shoulder and orange transparent sunglasses. I looked at him while he signed his autograph in his car; his face was really sharp and handsome. When I saw him in real life, I’ve never thought he has a fair face. But his face was really fair without blemishes like being under hundreds of reflectors. He was really cute when he talked to himself while signing his autograph.

One more thing, but I might get thrown stones. He might have lost weight. His hip had disappeared. I’m wondering where his duck-like hips have gone. Oh, well.. He was attractively tall and looked sharp.

[Trans] Fellow fans encountered YJ at Haewoondae in Busan. (Apr 17th, 2011)

reposted from suehan's blog

suehan: A fellow fan, who lives at Haewoondae, Busan, noticed a Ferrari looking for a parking space, when she was coming out from a restaurant after brunch. When the driver rolled down the window, she saw YJ in the driver seat troubling to find a parking space. There wasn’t a parking space for him. He apparently went inside then returned to his car to attempt to park again. 

There was a young handsome man in his twenties next to BYJ without security. She called members of byjintoronto and they waited about one hour in front of a sushi restaurant. They had a chance to talk to him; boonseongbae nim posted a detailed story on byjintoronto to share it with us. 

She said that YJ was wearing beige semi-baggy pants, a tight shirt with his sleeves folded halfway, a vest, and brown sunglass (transparent enough to see his eyes). He was also carrying a bag on his shoulder. Here is a detailed story. Please enjoy.

He will be coming out! coming out!

After waiting about one hour in front of a sushi restaurant..
He was coming out.
I can’t remember what he was wearing and what he was holding in his hand..

That’s him..

He is so different than years past.

I said.

He nodded his head.
He got in his car.
Us, three women, attached ourselves to his car.
It was so easy because there were no competitors.

Please shake hands with me.
I don’t need the autograph.
I just need physical contact with him.
My hands were so cold because I was waiting in the sea breeze.

But his hand was so soft and warm.
Ah.. it was such a great feeling.

Do you know baetomisa (byjintoronto)?
I’m still PR ambassador of baetomisa.

I’m from baetomisa.
I’m encouraged to talk to him since I got old.

What made you come this far?
Does he think that all of baetomisa members live in Seoul? 

I live at Haewoondae.
A fellow fan answered him while I was empty-minded.

Did you watch the video which baetomisa sent to you on your birthday last year?
He laughed while he answered, “Yes”. Even I can feel the laughter in his voice.. hehe

I made lots of videos.
He might have not been curious, so he didn’t respond to it.

Please appear in the drama.
I’ll do it within this year.
Seriously? Or just joking? Or he might have received the same questions all the time?
He responded to it right away without thinking.

Now, while he was talking to me, he was signing his autograph on the book that a fellow fan brought.
He doesn’t know today’s date, hesitated a little, and dated April 15.
Upon on a request of drawing “emotion”, he used, “^-^”.

Please shake my hand.
I might get addicted.
I shook hands with him again. Ah.. this crazy feeling.

He said he was going to leave.
We said bye.
He waived his hand.
We madly waived our hands back to him.

As he pulled out his car,
There were girls passing by, and screaming in front of his car, “It’s Bae Yong Joon.”
They weren’t fans.
He waved at them while he was driving.
It looked like a habit.
He surely would waive his hand sleeping.

While he was turning his car,
he opened the window and waived his hand again.
It felt like I had received a gift again.

The Ferrari left with a “boong.”
It was quite noisy.

ps. According to boonseongbae nim, YJ parked his car next to the potted plants too closely, so when he opened the door, the door got scratched a bit. Oops..

[Trans] Is BYJ in Busan?

@toggijjang I'm at Haewoondae in Busan. Hehehe.. I came to see my husband (or brother in law?) with Chanhee. I'm staying in a Sweet Room, hehe. I'm bragging about it.

OMG. I think Bae Yong Joon is staying at the same hotel as I am. After a meal, I was carrying my baby on my back because he/she was sleeping. I was walking in front of Bae Yong Joon and it seemed like he was carefully making sure that the door was opening and closing safely. He's definitely a gentleman.

@BYJTweets OMG I think I saw you at the hotel entrance. When I was entering the hotel with my baby on my back, I noticed you glancing at the door. I'm so giddy because I'm thinking it's because of your thoughtfulness (regarding the door). I was glad to have met you. I've read your book and you are a wonderful man.

Posted on KOB by Gauelyoja.

Mr. Yang said, he always take care of his company
people, BYJ always says I can't do the work without
the staff members. BYJ always treat the staff members like a his own family.

Mr. Yang also said, BYJ gave a foreign car for other manager as a present, and myself and coordinator
doesn't care for the foreign car, so we received a high class Korean made car as a present.

He also said, BYJ take good care of those who are on the bottom of the staff members, he always treat people equally. If BYJ finds out that staff members are having
a financial problem or having a tough time getting new home or rentals, etc. he always help them out without saying anything (Patty: what a guy, that is my man...the story touch my heart and made me cried). He always take care of the lowest rank people first and do things with them, such as excercise and workout together.

"형은 자신이 소고기 먹을 때 우리가 돼지고기 먹는 것을 원치 않아요. 함께 일하는 매니저를 소중한 존재로 여기고, 자신이 활동하는 데 없어서는 안 될 사람이라고 늘 추어올리죠. 다른 매니저에게 외제차를 선물했고, 저와 코디네이터는 개인적으로 외제차를 선호하지 않아 국산 고급 승용차를 선물로 받았어요. 그리고 가족(소속사 식구들)들이 집을 얻거나 금전적으로 필요한 일이 생기면 말없이 도움을 줬고요. 형은 '너희가 먹고사는 데 힘들면 나와 일할 때 다른 생각을 하지 않겠느냐'는 말을 자주 해요. 지금도 말단 직원부터 챙기고 그들과 함께 운동하는 것을 즐기죠." 매니저 양근환

Special thanks to Bae Yong Joon for his donations, the donations from him means a lot to them. I was touched to see the generosity and sincerity of him, he has shown us all that he stood for love. 
Therefore, through his life he deserves to be the role model for others.  I am very proud of him. And proud to be part of BYJ family..!!^_^
If BYJ has done his part, then what we've done to help them?? If we don't know what to do, at least we continue to pray for those who have become victims and suffer from this disaster.
