    [Trans] BYJ & Director Zhang Yimou - by Chen Wei Ming
    Chinese to English translation by cam
    Posted in www.byj.co.kr

    http://blog.sina.com.cn/u/4735cf3701000979 - 2007-01-29 20:06:27

    [Chen wei ming is the Chairman and CEO of Zhong Buo Films and Television Broadcasting Pty Ltd]

    Last week I blogged about Zhang Yimou’s first day in S.Korea promoting his film ‘Curse of the Golden Flower’. Today allow me to share some interesting encounters from his S. Korean trip.

    Because of Zhang Yimou's tight schedule, he only gave us less than two days to promote the film. We arrived around noon on the 18th Jan 07 and departed the following afternoon 19th Jan. Given the absence of Gong Li and Chow Yun Fat, director Zhang was surrounded by media and reporters, without recourse, which meant ultra long interviews for him.

    Omit….

    After rambling on about his schedule, allow me to share a few interesting stories. In November 2005, BYJ was in Beijing to promote ‘April Snow’ and requested especially to meet up with Director Chang as he is someone that BYJ looks up to. We managed to organize their meeting as requested. But that day was when the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games mascot figure was announced. Being the head, Director Chang had to be there, so he missed out on joining us (BYJ and Chenweiming etc.) for dinner. Once the ceremony was over, he rushed to the restaurant to see BYJ. BYJ was quite moved.

    When BYJ heard that we were coming to S. Korea to promote Director Chang’s film ‘Curse of the Golden Flower’, he called before we even reached the hotel. We then scheduled a time to meet up. At the same time, BYJ delivered flowers to the hotel to welcome us. Unfortunately he was filming a TV drama on that day, our original schedule was in the evening, but there were extra shootings added temporarily. He was trying to get permission from the director to get the evening off but without success. All we could do was to give in to fate. When he confirmed that he could not make it, he called again to apologize and express his regrets, hoping that they will meet up on Director’s Chang’s next trip to S. Korea.

    Omit….

    Korean to English translation by suehan

    The posting below is posted on lcktour.com by its administrator.




    Annyeonghaseyo, I'm in Seoul.

    It was busy Monday from early in the morning in Seoul, and it was warm all day.

    The filming team came back from Jeju and they started filming on a large scale starting January 30th.

    The weather had been very intensely cold in January and it calmed down even though it was for a very short time.
    So I think it might help the filming a little.

    Bae Yong joon ssi took a break after he had filmed and came back from Young Wol.
    It said that he stopped by the gym and he was sweating as he enjoys working out regularly.

    It said that Bae Yong Joon ssi will film again in Puyo, Chungcheongnamdo on the 7th.

    It is a famous place because it was used to film the historical drama <Seodongyo> by Director Lee Byung Hoon (Daejanggum),
    who belongs to <Kim Jong Hak Production>--which is a production company for TWSSG too.

    Hi sis liezle. Wasn't able to visit JOB yesterday. Was quite busy with work. Nothing's new except the traffic caused by Joon2007 diary reservation for a couple of days. It's been like this in JOB during first few days of reservation everytime a new product is launched. I finally placed my order on the 2nd day.

    Hi sis frances! It's not so cold this year compared to the past years. Still yet to experience the first snow this year. I think this is due to the global warming. As far as I can remember about twenty years ago we've had an average of 3 of 4 heavy snow even in Kanto Area (that includes Tokyo and Saitama where I live).

    Still so quiet in baeland! I hope we can see new pictures of the MAN soon!

    Have a nice week ahead everyone!

    Hi everyone it's been a while...

    I'm sad to hear that Yong Joon-ssi and Director Zhang Yimou weren't able to meet due to conflict in their schedule. I remember how happy BYJ was when he got a chance to have a face to face entounter with the esteemed director during his visit to China.

    Hi liezle!
    Hi Everyone!

    I had to echo your comments about missing "HRH". I think we are all feeling kinda lonely since there's been little news and pictures lately.

    I know I'm a few years behind, but I recently purchased "The Image". I've seen all the photos everyone has been kind enough to share, but I just had to have my very own copy. It's such a wonderful collection of pictures and I really enjoyed the DVD. He was most candid about the project and what it took for him to get into shape for the photo shoot. I really admire him for his dedication and I find such inspiration from all that he does. Now, to keep my New Years Resolution to keep fit - mentally and physically.

    Here's wishing YJ and crew ALL THE BEST for a successful completion of TWSSG/LEGEND.

    がんばって ください Yong Joon ssi!!

    Yong Joon is set to make a movie in Japan? I have no idea. Haven't heard anything like this
    before. and I noticed there are some errors about the numbers written there. First of all it's
    a 1972 wine not 1970 which is the year he was born and the price of of his figurine is 39,000
    yen not 390,000 yen. Is he getting 20 million dollars for Secom CF? I doubt that Secom give
    him royalty aside from his CF talent fee.

    One more thing, the original article in Korean said that he'll get 60-70% from the income of
    the LEGEND which starts airing in May. This earning is anticipated not from a certain movie
    but from the drama LEGEND. They should be more accurate bec they just copied what Korean
    papers reported. When I find time today, I'll probably bring this to their attention.

    [Trans] from the eyes of reporters (3/6)

    Six Korean Entertainment Reporters
    Talk about Bae Yong Joon Anonymously



    # Despite His Seemingly Relaxed Expression,
    One can Feel His Weariness and Tension
    from His Body Gestures



    While flipping through different channels, my eyes became fixated on a TV channel in its midst of broadcasting an entertainment variety show. There were a few entertainers casually cracking jokes, chatting about this and that. I don’t usually pay attention to this kind of programs, but I don’t know why, I actually watched right till the end.

    The topic for the show that day was ‘Entertainers too watch other entertainers’. Even amongst entertainers themselves, they also have a ‘most ideal’ one in their minds. Who is that ultimate person? I heard many names being mentioned, of course some of them are deserving of the title.

    Finally, all the entertainers present spoke out unanimously, “Bae Yong Joon is the finest!!” This is the opening statement of renowned critic and movie columnist Mr S.

    Yong Joon, being crowned ‘The Most Watched Entertainer Amongst Other Entertainers’, is addressed as ‘Yonsama’ in Asia. He who is on the receiving end of much love and concern, is already a proven solid actor for over a decade. When you look around the current Korean entertainment circle where every actor, singer, entertainer deviates from their roots, he has been guarding his position as an actor for 12 years without swaying. He only focuses himself on acting, never focusing on quick fame or quick money; he concentrates only on performing itself.

    A person such as Bae Yong Joon… through a TV love drama ‘Winter Sonata’, he became ‘Yonsama’ overnight. He turned into an Asian superstar representing Korea, became a cultural exchange ambassador, and even a key figure having to express his political standing.

    This year, it’s the 5th year of him becoming Yonsama …..

    He does not mind and does not seem to be bothered about the ever growing and increasingly intensified ‘Yonsama passion’. Instead he rises above the fame and nonchalantly casts aside the Yonsama title, as he immersed his heart and soul into acting out different characters in every piece of his works.

    “Every time when we see Bae Yong Joon, it’s always an elegant image of classy suits. Even though he has that warm tender expression of a ‘smiling prince’, however, his body gestures suggest to me of his tension and weariness. For the fans who are cheering for ’Yonsama’, this may be hard for them to comprehend.

    When he starred in his first movie ’Untold Scandal’, there were far more people who expressed they wanted to see ‘Yonsama’s work’ than ‘Bae Yong Joon’s first movie’. Of course it’s the same person, but I always feel that there is a big differentiation between Yonsama and Bae Yong Joon. That is to say, Yonsama is not his self-identity anymore, rather, it’s a surreal impression created in people’s eyes. Due to this disparity, I don’t know from when the actor has disappeared, what remains is only the idealistic princely image (of Yonsama).”


    During the interview, Bae Yong Joon wore a smile throughout, and he always looked right at the person he was speaking to. Mr S’s foremost concern is the situation that Bae Yong Joon is in now.

    “At his movie premiere, even though he is already a movie star, but I can feel that he’s still very anxious and listened earnestly to the audience’s opinion and views of the movie. As long as the critics gave him a slight nod for his effort, he would feel truly delighted.

    Facing the lenses from so many video cameras, he had to respond to the never-ending streams of questions from reporters, local and abroad. At the same time, he also seized this opportunity to ask reporters on their opinions. He wondered if these people received orders from their companies to only choose complimentary words to say to him.

    For any topics that related to the content of the movie, regardless of the nature of the question, he would listen attentively, then meticulously expressed his own thoughts. Of course, he took the reactions of the audience towards the movie and his acting very seriously. He said, “I do not disguise myself (of how anxious and eager I am to hear your views), that’s because I take the movie very seriously.”


    And I feel this is not Yonsama, this is the real actor Bae Yong Joon.

    # Bae Yong Joon Cures
    My Reluctance in Meeting People



    “Being the editor of a magazine, even if you don’t like to socialize, you still have to interact with many people. For someone who has no social skills like me, when I heard about the happy gathering events from friends, I feel envious but also quite sceptical at the same time. Through the magazine, I got to meet mostly people who are top-notched in their fields. These people receive so much admiration and flattery, so this is what they expect around them. The more opportunities I get to meet these kinds of people, the more I despise people in general.

    However, there was this one person ….

    who caused me to suppress that ‘anti-social psychology’, he’s a very fine person whom I’ve met.”
    This is from a very popular Korean info magazine editor Mr H’s first meeting with Bae Yong Joon in 1994.

    It was raining on the day of the interview. Mr H was soaked in rain from head to toes, looking as awkward as a character emerging from a comic strip. Back then, Bae Yong Joon was only a relatively unknown actor who had just started out, but for some unknown reason, his appearance gave people very refreshing impression.

    “Facing my comical and pitiful appearance, Bae Yong Joon was calm and courteous, he chose his words carefully and behaved in a prudent and somewhat formal manner which deeply touched me. He’s really a very distinguished young man.”


    Then three years later in 1997, Mr H interviewed him again.

    “By then, Bae Yong Joon was already a top star, but he was not arrogant. He still maintained that same cool and easy manner, really a hard-to-come-by good person.

    Through him, I learnt about how he would look into other people’s eyes during conversation, and also learnt about that honest and earnest heart of his that tries so hard to express his thoughts sincerely and truthfully.”


    My luck was not too bad in 2006, I actually realized my third interview (with him)……

    “If I were to express my sentiments at that time, it would be that I was ‘so overwhelmed with emotions’, just like seeing an old friend after a long break …”

    Here's my cleaned-up, polite version of the letter to Mainichi:

    QUOTE
    Was the "Yongsama" article written by the owner's favorite child or something? It's obviously not by a professional journalist.

    The facts are all wrong. He's called "Yonsama", not "Yongsama" (easy to check!) and his name is Bae Yong Joon. Oy.

    If he's such a failure in Korea, then why is he starring in the biggest-hyped, biggest-budgeted drama in the history of anything? Maybe the "writer" (and I use the term very loosely) has some jealousy issues with Mr. Bae. How pitiful and shameful for the "writer".

    I don't know how they do journalism in Japan, but in America, if you printed garbage like this, full of factual errors and just plain bad writing, you'd lose face and have to write for gossip rags like the Weekly World News or perezhilton.com.

    I do notice that the so called "journalist" (laughs) that patched together this mess was so ashamed of his or her hatchet job that he or she couldn't put a name on the article. I do believe that is the one intelligent thing this supposed professional writer did right.

    Please, put together a collection in the office to send this hack to journalism school. Or at least teach this waste of meat about "fact checking".

    Thank you,

    The TWSSG filming team filmed at the Yongin set.

    Bae Yong Joon ssi stopped by at the gym around 2 pm and worked out until around 3:30 pm.

    He, who enjoys ¡°well-being¡± food, comes to <GIK> and gets take-out like today because
    he likes the food of <GIK>.

    I hope he can relax for tomorrow's filming.

    hello everyone! i'll be out the whole day and will back back later tonight. but before i go let me share with you the article which tomato99 translated. this is the same article that the writer from Mainichi translated which is inaccurate.

    thanks so much to tomato for doing the translation. the article is not bad actually. i suppose there is really a problem with the writer from Mainichi as fabshelley pointed out above.

    hi Mariko! wow another CREA with Yong Joon image can't wait to see the photos image

    Dear Quilt family,

    Shukan Bunshun is one of very popular weekly magazines in Japan, and I believe its main readers are men. its article varies from politics to entertainment gossips.
    They do sometimes bring up the articles related to Korean entertainment but it is more a gossip article I have never bothered to translate it to share it with everyone.
    I had read this article when the magazine came out last week, I did not feel comfortable of their wordings but its contents were mostly true, I have no objections to the article.

    Since the original article in 'Shukan Bunshun¡' has never mentioned that BYJ is wash-up, let me attach my version of translation of Shukan Bunshun article, the problem with Mainichi could be more clear to you.
    I think the trouble lies with the writer / translator with Mainichi.


    Let me remind you that publisher of Shukan Bunshun also publishes CREA!!
    there will be some YJ featured pages on March issue which will be on sale from today (7 February)

    'Income Balance breakdown' of Yon-sama who plucked 10billion yen from Japanese Aunties

    'He is now even called a 'walking chaebol.' Amount of tax payment is at top in Korean entertainment, and its amount is about the same as middle class company with good performance.'
    (comment by media related person in Korea)

    Bae Yong Joon (34) alias Yon-sama's annual earnings were revealed other day.
    Income amount was 4,268million yen.
    Tax amount for his earning is 1,260million yen.
    Highest exposure in Japan, Mino Monta's annual earning is 550 million yen, and tax amount is 200million yen. You can easily understand how much BYJ has earned.
    (tomato: Mino Monta is a famous TV celebrity in Japan who hosts many TV programs in Japan.)

    'This sum of money is taxed to last year's earnings, which is only for incomes of 2005.
    Winter Sonata boom started in 2004 and you can pass out just by considering whole total of his income.' (same media person in Korea)

    First of all, what is the breakdown of his 4.2billion yen income?
    Answering to our interview, PR person at Yon-sama's management company say,
    'we do not have the details.'
    But a reporter with a sports newspaper talked to us instead.
    'Since the Hallyu wave, with his performance fee for the hit movie 'April Snow,' endorsement for CFs, his income as actor totals to 890million yen.
    Out of it, 780million yen is income from CFs for Coca-Cola, Sony and other companies.
    Based on this calculation, his income purely from acting is about 110million yen.'

    So, where does other income for Yon-sama come from?
    'Sales of items like mobile phone straps, key holders which characters himself, photo books, DVDs ,and Winter Sonata typing software will lead to royalty earnings of total 3,350million yen.
    This accounts for about 80 percent of his whole income.'(says reporter same as before)


    Even though Yon-sama did not have any movie or drama appearance, he is making money in 2006.
    'He starred in CF for Secom Japan, other incomes include usage of copyrights and portrait rights which add to 10billion won (1,290million yen).

    He is also accessing to Pachinko industry, 'Pachinko Winter Sonata,' which is based on story of WLS is becoming a great hit, this portrait right has earned him about 800million won (about 100million yen).' (says same media related person in Korea)

    And last year, Yon-sama opened a Korean restaurant in Shirokane, Tokyo.
    Our reporters have dined at the place, lunch course of 5,500 yen and a glass of soft drink for two persons, adding tax and service fee charge totaled to 14,500yen.
    Even at this price, there was a waiting list of about two months and there are women fans still coming to dine there.

    'Capitalizing on popularity of Yon-sama, price setting stands out as bullishness.
    One of official goods, 10 fresh photos costs for 5500yen but it is selling like hot cakes.
    A set of bottle of wine of his born year 1972 with a glass was sold last fall, at about 40,000yen.
    In February a figure featuring a scene from WLS will be sold for 39,000yen.' (says same person)

    From the beginning of WLS boom in 2004 to end of 2006, entire income estimates to close to 10billion yen(!).
    It is more an admiration to know how much he has made, but for husbands who have wife who is Yon-sama fan, there are more stories that may cause you headache.

    This year Yon-sama is aggressively working in acting.
    At current, he is shooting TWWSG at Jejudo which is a TV drama of a story of King in Goguryeo period. It is scheduled to be aired in Japan and Korea in May.
    His company is planning to make the shooting locations and sights to be tourist spots.
    Like boom with WLS, there will be fans flooding in from Japan.
    They are expecting sales of about 6.4billion yen and 60 or 70 percent will be income for BYJ.
    (says same person)

    And his business in Japan is still expanding.
    There will be new machines for Pachinko, and from January members limited mobile-phone site has started.
    Also, the company will cooperate with Sanrio, company famous for popular Kitty character, and expand business with producing character products. says a sports newspaper reporter.

    Anyhow, some of the fans are shifting to handkerchief prince.
    Dear husbands, a little more patience¡...probably.

    handkerchief prince is a baseball player who took away hearts of aunties last summer.

    hello everyone! i'll be out the whole day and will back back later tonight. but before i go let me share with you the article which tomato99 translated. this is the same article that the writer from Mainichi translated which is inaccurate.

    thanks so much to tomato for doing the translation. the article is not bad actually. i suppose there is really a problem with the writer from Mainichi as fabshelley pointed out above.

    hi Mariko! wow another CREA with Yong Joon image can't wait to see the photos image

    here goes ~

    It is more an admiration to know how much he has made, but for husbands who have wife
    who is Yon-sama fan, there are more stories that may cause you headache.

    Good morning liezle! The original article is not really offensive at all since this is a
    magazine for men. Hmmm headache for husbands. There are different cases. I know
    some cases where the husbands are thankful that their wives became vibrant and some
    recovered from sickness after becoming a BYJ fan.

    About the handkerchief prince thingy, he's now playing with Waseda University baseball
    team. The media is giving him headache cos this guy is quite shy, but I don't think all YJ
    fans will shift to him. Once YJ fan will always be a YJ fan. We're just too many to just got
    swayed away.

    I’m posting this info cos somebody has asked me about the current list of top 10 movies
    in Japan based on box office results. Btw, there is a big difference between the top 10
    movies shown nationwide on big screens and the top 10 movies shown in small theaters.
    Don’t be misled by this.

    Anyway, here is the list for the top 10 movies shown on big screens nationwide this week.
    Got the results from the following links:
