Does anyone know where I can get the song sung by Lee Byun Hun in the original OST? I purchased the OST for this drama when it was rebroadcast in our area but that song--I think it was #14 on the track was not there. It is a beautiful song.

being my first korean drama, i've only heard of CJW - not LBH. when i first saw him, i wasn't really impressed with his looks and i found the blonde highlights weird. :lol:

but as i watched the drama, just like Yeon Soo, i was drawn to him. :blush: the way he looks at her - his character in the first episodes are intimidating (since his character is initially meant to be the villain anyway) but it appealed to me. i even like that suspenseful music being played whenever Min Chul gets close to Yeon Soo, ie. in the office when Yeon Soo dropped her stuff and Min Chul was touching her hair, notty notty! Min Chul's a jealous man too ... but i wouldn't mind :lol:

Yeon Soo is my favorite CJW character. she has a strong will. there wasn't really any "girl torn between two men she loves" situation here - she knows who she wants and she'll fight for her love. her weakness is her little sister Sena.

omo, i rambled too much :lol: i'll finish this later.

I know the feeling Chula! I think everyone wasn't drawn to BH at first glance... :P

I remember way back 2003 (Oct I think), I was at our clinic when I first saw BD...I was changing channels looking for something interesting to watch when I saw BD being shown....anyway, I was not really concentrating in watching it....talking to my brother while glancing on the TV once in a while....It was I think almost halfway already...somewhere around ep 11 or 12... then all of a sudden MINCHUL came out! and I was like dumbfounded....embarrassing to say but I was telling my brother is that the lead actor??? Yuk ang panget! (not handsome!)...even my bro agreed with me! shame on me huh! :lol:and the hair!!! I said to myself what's with the hair??? it's so yucky! :lol: But I don't know... there was something with BD that made me open the TV everyday during the timeslot and watched it... As I continued watching it I was slowly being drawn and mesmerized by MINCHUL!...ooohhh...the stares and that killer smile! :wub: and great acting too! When I saw a VCD copy of BD the following month, I grabbed it and did a marathon for 2 days straight! I ate my words already about BH being "panget" ! I am now hook, crazy, addict on BH! :wub:

haaay! me rambling too much too! I am really a crazy BD/BH fan hence my old USERNAME LBHCrazy! :lol:

Min-chul, weary of the earlier happenings, returns to the company. He is surprised to see Yeon-soo busy at work. Teasing her a little, he makes her a cup of tea. Yeon-soo is deeply touched by Min-chul's sensitive ways.

Lee Byung-heon, Choi Ji-woo to Participate in "Beautiful Days" Concert in Japan

"Hallyu" stars Lee Byung-heon and Choi Ji-woo will appear in the final "Beautiful Days" concert in Tokyo, Japan, next month. Japanese dailies including Sankei Sports and Sports Nippon reported April 13 that the two stars will visit Japan to participate in the final concert to be held May 6-7 at the Tokyo International Forum.

The Japanese media wrote that while Lee and Choi's visit has been confirmed, the organizers of the concert still have to decide in what manner the two will appear onstage. Apparently, they will greet their fans onstage, and the best scenes of the drama "Beautiful Days" will be shown onscreen. Japanese newspapers are placing high expectations on the concert as it will be the first time Lee and Choi will appear in Japan in public together.

The "Beautiful Days" concerts were staged to celebrate the popularity of the same-titled miniseries starring Lee and Choi. "Beautiful Days" gained enormous popularity in Japan when it aired after "Winter Sonata." The concerts have been held eight times between March 8 and April 11 in the Tokyo International Forum and the Festival Hall in Osaka. 

The final concert featuring Lee and Choi will become a kind of grand finale celebrating the drama's success.

"The popularity of drama-related concerts in Japan can be ascribed to the fact that they present audiences with an opportunity to see 'hallyu' stars in person. We are doing our utmost to ensure the success of this concert," said Yedang Entertainment, Choi's agency and the concert's organizer.

Lee Byung-hun and Choi Ji-woo are scheduled to appear at the final concert for the drama Beautiful Days, in Tokyo, Japan on May 6 and 7. 

The concert will be broadcast on NHK. The TV miniseries/drama, Beautiful Days was extremely well received by Japanese fans. Eight other Beautiful Days anniversary concerts have been held since March 8, but this concert is said to be the last. 

The actors have both had great success in Japan and have held many events and fan meetings separately. However, this will be the first time that the two have come together in Japan to participate in an event. Reports of the two Korean Wave (Hallyu) stars have already been reported throughout Japan and fans are extremely excited about the event. It is not yet confirmed in what manner they appear on stage together.

welcome to the thread YellowStarGirl. unfortunately, there aren't any BD in HQ available in any clubbox as far as i know. i'm not even sure if we'll ever see BD in Clubbox because SBS shows are now on NOWCOM's prohibited list. party poopers! :(

i think they only way you could watch BD for now is to download the Torrent files at d-addicts.
