Joowon cries... I cry too~ All the hardships and happiness that we went through together the past couple of years... It has been a roller-coaster ride being in this fandom. Joowon has had to work so h

Hai girls! Sorry I've been out of it for the past couple of days. I didnt have time to go to soompi, hadnt even back-tracked the pages since Saturday and my phone takes the longest time ever to upload

After Korean Drama Awards, I read somewhere that 80% of the netizens' comments was on how Kim Soo Hyun deserved the award, 10% were hurling insults on Yong Pal writer and Kim Tae Hee for winning and 5

Hai girls! Sorry I've been out of it for the past couple of days. I didnt have time to go to soompi, hadnt even back-tracked the pages since Saturday and my phone takes the longest time ever to upload things. I still smile every morning thinking about what happened last Saturday. It was more perfect than I could ever have imagined. So here goes~

My intention for this event was to get to the venue as soon as possible. Every time I see Joowon, I think to myself "this may be the last time I see him, so make the most of it". So this thought propels me to grab the first flight to Singapore on Saturday morning at 6.10am which will let me reach Singapore at 7:15am. I had to get up at 3am to get ready, so just imagine how exceptionally tired I am waiting until 7pm that night.

Anyway, I followed the girls' instructions on how to get to the venue, and I reached at 8:50am. The rest, you've read from @Ma OO that I met up with @Tasia first, then her, then @pris0980 and @rionae later on. We had so much fun teasing each other, planning what to do, talking about Joowon. You girls even had me dip my feet into the moaty lake for a while! Geez...

Anyway, as @Ma OO said, it was all waiting from my 8:50am until 7:15pm. Despite my body aching all over from the cramped space, I was having the time of my life. I just want to see Joowon up close for a longer period of time like in Thai fanmeeting as opposed to glimpses of him, and since I got the front row, I'm perfectly happy. Mission accomplished!

I didnt see Joowon came out as there were so many people and my line of vision was blocked by the stage. But I do see Angel manager, and I think he saw me in that split second. :D Jaecheon walks around the floor when Park Hye Soo came out to talk and sing, and he took pictures of her then stood obediently in his backpack. Fans recognized him too. He was like a mini-celebrity himself. My full focus for that night was Joowon, so I ignored Jaecheon (sorry, sweetie~) He was even here and there when Joowon came out, but I didnt notice.

Park Hye Soo

She was very stiff. Not surprising since this is only her 2nd time standing in front of fans like this, in a foreign country. I really love her for she was so gentle and sweet. She's just like her role in Yongpal, speaking softly and sweetly. She stands on the exact same spot, not moving any of her leg muscles in those killer heels. She only moves her upper body part.

When she's about to sing, the minus-1 audio was the wrong one played. She stands there awkwardly, grabbing the mic tightly in her hands, and just look around curiously at the MC. He sensed something was wrong too, so he controlled the situation by asking us to scream more, and to talk with Hye Soo. He's a really good MC!

Next, the correct minus-1 song was played. I was singing along with her loudly, then realized my ugly voice is gonna be captured in fancams, so I opted to lip-sync instead which was so difficult! I'm used to singing loudly in my car. Her voice was perfectly steady despite her not holding the mic close to her mouth to capture the sound perfectly. But she sings extremely beautifully. I love her a lot for her beautiful voice~ She may be the next Joowon when it comes to singing OSTs for dramas.

Joowon

I will never get tired of seeing this gorgeous man. Everything about him was perfect that night, from head to toe. He colored his hair slightly brown, to match his perfectly tan skin and light brown eyes. He wore black shirt with white inner shirt and black baggy pants (wish it was tighter, but then I wont be able to focus on his face and kept staring at his lower body instead) with his favorite black shoes. He even wore his favorite watch! I love when guys rolled up their sleeves, and he did it in front of me! *swoon*

When Joowon came out, he was such a tease~ He walked ever so slowly, taking in his surroundings from the topmost 3rd floor, down to the 2nd floor, then finally he swept his eyes on the ground floor. He's definitely enjoying this! LOL! I love him all the more for wanting more screams. And scream for him, I did.

I never intended to take fancams, for I've always just wanted to see Joowon's face without ever having to worry myself about the recording. Had a bad experience before with recording, I didnt even record anything for Thai fanmeeting. But since I'm in front, I decided to record, and it was the second best decision I have ever made. I got to replay each of his reaction when he talks, and when he waited for the translator to talk. He looks around at fans with his cute face expressions. He loves to pout! He's so adorable, really. And he has this way of using cute and funny hand gestures when he talks. I need to make a video compilation of his body gestures, which is just so cute, really~

Well, the rest of the fanmeeting passed by perfectly~ You girls can watch from fancams later on, so I wont spoil it yet. In the beginning when Joowon sat down, he answered a question. When the translator was talking, I seized the chance to call out his name and he looked at me. He recognized me! Seriously, I totally wasnt expecting it! I just wanted him to smile at my camera, wanting an eye-contact for a second or two. But the look of recognition on his face...

It was priceless to me. Luckily I recorded it! I feel thankful that Joowon remembers his fans. :wub: We made several eye-contact throughout the event. The first was when he recognized me in the above clip. Here are some other times we made eye-contact which got me questioning how did I survive that night. I actually didnt notice these eye-contacts, but luckily for my recording, I saw them.

I dont remember when this happened, but he's just so cute!

This part was when the MC asked who was the earliest to arrive. I said 7 am at the airport. I wasnt looking at him at this time, but was trying to catch the MC's attention instead. My phone was still recording and as I replayed, I saw this. HOW COULD I MISS THIS MOMENT??!!!! The translator even translated what I said to Joowon.

CRHA3BrVAAAquBH.jpg

And the goodbye~ Well, not exactly wave-goodbye, but he's saying his goodbye to the fans, and I was saying "Annyeong~" to him.

Will share more videos some other time~

EDIT: Put some parts in spoiler coz this post is too long

Oh MY! Thank you so much.

About Korean Drama Awards,I was only able to watch the part when they were announcing Daesang. Although I knew JW will not get it,there is tiny bit of me wishing that he will or maybe Jisung. Honestly speaking,I will have accepted it if it was other senior actors . Even from the short clips that they shown for nominees,it is clear that the other are way better than the person who get award. Nevertheless,we cannot change anything. But I was somehow happy when K netizens voiced out that they are unhappy with the results. I don't know where you read it,but I saw it on other posts that they were bashing the winner. Finally they have eyes huh? I hope.

I have the feeling that Joo Won purposely chose to go for promotion instead of attending the show. Apart from that popular guy,the rest of the nominees are senior actors who spent decade in acting industry. Their acting is at tip-top level and powerful. I am not saying that Joo Won is not but  as a young actor,he still have more to go. I think JW also know that. Since this award show is known for giving popular actors,I believe JW do not want to get Daesang with the help of his recent popularity. He will rather get it fairly. Hence I think JW somehow opt out as he believe it is not going to be fair for senior actors at all,or himself. 

 

His name was first on naver search.

Thank you for all the fan accounts! Glad that you all had a wonderful time. I am reading your fan accounts and smiling like a fool at my phone because I can imagine myself doing the same... Anything for Joowon-ie oppa~

@mrdimples in your post sharing sdee's email, she mentioned KBS airing a special about Joowon. Do you know which show it is? Entertainment Weekly? Even better, do you happen to have the link? *puppy dog eyes and goofy grin* Also, thank you for promising subs for healing camp. I will wait faithfully for it.

About the subs... If anyone finds Healing Camp with chinese subs can you please post it here or PM me? My chinese skills are half baked but I will convince my mom to read the subs to me. (I swear she thinks I'm too crazy for Joowon)

I've already seen healing camp raw and abused my rewind button.

And on the cultural influences on speech, nuances, etc...

 I am pretty easygoing but I noticed something that annoys me a lot. A little background on myself... I grew up in an Asian country and moved to North America and I am currently teaching at a post-secondary institution. I get really annoyed when my students call me by my first name. But really, that's

my problem because it is ok to go by first name in this culture. (I know, totally my problem.) Though I have to say tone and body language is important. So I am usually less impressed with those who call my name without a second thought and speak to me like I am their childhood buddy. Don't worry, no grades were harmed in the process. (I hope my students are not in here... And if you are we are not going to discuss Joowon in class. But if I get paid to do that......)

And about how soompi (ads) hates me...

 Recently there's been this ad that takes me away from the soompi sites to offer me a free iphone6. Erm, no thank you. And how dare you interfere with my kdrama and soompi forum addiction by redirecting me! I'd forgive you a bit if it were a pop-up screen which I can close.

Omoooo!!! Thanks for the screencaps @coolreborn and will wait for those subs as promised by @mrdimples!!! Yay!!! I think @mrdimples posted in Yongpal thread of the reactions of those who attended Healing Camp who got mesmerized by Cutie and were even saying how 3-4hours of recording was not boring at all. 

Ooohhh I'm also curious about that Joo Won special aired by KBS! And that was so funny asking Cutie to be an SBS employee too in that hashtag. Hahaha! Well, aside from solid acting chops and lots of talents, he has this awesome and cute personality that go with it and perfect for talkshows, interviews, etc or just making filming atmosphere light and fun. So for sure, he's gonna be receiving love calls from different stations! I'm just happy that there are now more options for him in choosing his next projects because of this surge in his popularity, and that new fans get to watch his old dramas and see his awesomeness! ^^

@yonaomi123 I saw your signature. Why do you wish Joo Won is in D- Day? You like the drama? I haven't checked it out. 

Have you seen this? Joo Won and Kim Young Kwang are models for GGIO2. 

 

 

Hey mrdimples.  I'm really enjoying D-Day so far and having Young Kwang and Joo Won reunite after doing Good Doctor together would be awesome!!!

@mrdimples: Love the pics you posted of JooWon... he should wear button down shirts more often - he looks so good in them! Sweaters are cute and all, but I like that dapper style on him better. ;) Ah... I'm still missing YongPal so much but aiyoh, aiyoh... he's so sweetiepie in Good Doctor. I really admire musical theatre people too. I also tend to think of them as "real actors" - not that those who don't have a theatre background aren't in a real craft. It's just that I have a lot of friends in theatre and I know how much work goes into their training, rehearsals and productions and I respect their craft a lot. It's for this reason that I also admire JCW. I find that actors with a theatre background are very humble because they truly know the work of an artist, and not just an artiste.

Joo Won thought he was going to die during filming?

 

On October 12 airing of SBS 'Healing Camp,' actor Joo Won guested on the show where he talked about the burden of taking on main roles as well as the physical toll that he's endured through filming.

 

When asked about being burdened, Joo Won said, "Being burdened is inevitable. I think its natural to feel burdened as the lead role since the production costs are no joke." 

 

He continued, "I don't like to burden anyone so no matter what happens, I try to tolerate it. If I try, I can understand anything. With time, it can happen."

 

MC Kim Jae Dong then asked, "When do you feel the most disappointed?" to which Joo Won answered as his eyes started to fill with tears, "I blow up when people don't recognize how much of an effort I'm making." 

 

He continued, "I was filming for nearly three months and for two months I couldn't sleep and felt like a crazy person. I was physically... I thought then that I would die like this. I had an IV in my arm while traveling. I just lived like that. Then, I thought, 'Is it okay to just tolerate this?'

 

In the past, I would think what's good is good. But then I thought that people were just like this because I kept tolerating. So I blew up. But the problem was when I blew up, when I felt that disappointment, I ran to my car and cried.

Gah, just break my heart.  Go right ahead.  Aw.  That seriously makes me want to cry just reading this.  And I'm not a crier. 

This feels like Win Win all over again.  Is it going to make me cry?  Someone tell me.  Haha.  I still haven't watched it...

You know, people have been saying this about him for years, that he refuses to complain when things are difficult to the point that it is just insane.  So I'm not surprised that he would just snap at some point.

It's an Asian sensibility thing... this "tolerating everything" behaviour. Not saying all Asians are like that, but generally when you're younger, you are taught to tolerate because it is the right thing to do, it is the respectful thing to do, and as difficult as it is, I still advocate such a perspective in life because it is what builds resilience. Increasingly, in our overly permissive and "understanding" world, young people are exactly not building up this resilience. Therefore as much as I feel bad for him (it is a sucky life to say the least), I am glad that he is willingly choosing to do it this way - he will become a better person, a more stable man, a sturdier personality. I do hope people close to and around him constantly reassure him that he is doing alright, and that he too learns how to take care of himself. I applaud him. Fighting, Joo Won ssi!

Article: 'Healing Camp' Joo Won, "I've been in two relationships thus far"

Source: OSEN via Naver

"I've been in two relationships so far. There was a time after my debut that I liked someone but ended up working on a drama and had to stop. It's not that I didn't want to date but that I was in so many projects at once that I had to put aside my feelings."

When asked on his ideal woman, he said, "A nice woman with a pretty back and some fat on her tummy."

-

1. [+1,576, -38] I fit his criteria, I have a tummy

2. [+821, -26] ㅋ I feel like two relationships is not that bad... it all depends on who you are as a person as to whether you have lots of relationships or not many;;

3. [+803, -40] I have tons of tummy fat, let's get married

4. [+747, -22] Seems like he's the type who dates someone for a long time

5. [+544, -52] He must have high standards if he's only been in two.. ㅠㅠ but sure, it's Joo Won.. whoever those two were, I'm so jealous of them

6. [+191, -12] Tummy fat ㅋㅋㅋ but I bet once he gets into a scandal, his girlfriend will end up being someone with an amazing body ㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+186, -12] He seems like the type who'll be sooo good to his girlfriend, like she'll feel every second that he's in love with her

8. [+186, -12] It's not how many relationships you've been in that matters but how long you were in them for. Anyone who's been in longer relationships proves that they don't get tired of people easily. I much prefer someone who has a low number of past relationships but over longer periods.

9. [+139, -11] He definitely treasures his work over love ㅋ probably because he hasn't met someone he truly loves yet. He's greedy when it comes to his work, he probably takes extra acting practice so he doesn't fall behind ㅋ

10. [+135, -8] I remember he was on a talk show in the past and he cried while talking about his ex... seemed like a girl from before he debuted. He must've really loved her.... I wonder who it is, a woman who can make Joo Won cry..

Just watched the video. Don't understand Korean but just looking at him, his expressions... he is such a sincere young man. I too would be very happy if my son grew up like that. :rolleyes: He's just so sweetie, sweetie, sweet, sweet, sweeeeeeeet!!! And how could anyone live with an IV?!?! I'm always joking about how I need an IV to survive, but I didn't think people actually did it! GOOD GRIEF! No wonder so many Koreans are leaving their country and coming out here to live and work! It's really tough surviving there!

Annyeong chingus!
I just went to heaven on Saturday... just came back to this hella world... ;) 
IT WAS SO AMAZING TO SEE JOO WON SO CLOSELY!!!!
I am not able to post pictures... Anyway, my pictures were not so well-taken...
Anyway... my first fan account... on my first time (ever) coming to a Fan Meeting.... Which I only did just because of our Cutie... The man who I admired since Baker King, Kim Tak Gu.. Although he played as the second lead actor at that time, but he captured my attention with his daebak acting skills... And also his voice for "My Love" at that time... The only actor I've even been crazy with with his persona. Joo Won... my great actor..
So... I reached Suntec at around 10.30 am, after being notified that the queue had started... I sat on the queue, blur like sotong, didn't know what to do, what to expect... On my left and right were half of my age girls who were very friendly... I took some pictures of the big posters there, excited to see even his face on the posters... Having not being able to sleep the night before due to excitement, however, I started to feel very sleepy, but then one of my angels appeared, @farbarri  ~ I was so glad to meet her finally!! Then I met the other angels ~  @Ma OO and @Pris0980 and @Rionae and so we talked about Joo Won...
The wait was so.... exciting, although my old big body was really forced to handle the situation... :)  Kept on telling myself... IT WAS MY ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY!
Started at around 7.15 pm the MC started to heat up the crowd... Though I felt a it dizzy, I hung on... I stood 2nd row to the barricade, near the stage, in the middle... A very lucky position, to get a clear view of the stage..
I got ready my handphone (which was already in critical condition - 30% powered) to take video for Joo Won's first appearance... Glad I did, and I was able to take quite a clear video of him.... I trembled and joined the crowd to scream my lung out... Joo Won!!!!!! 
Then, it was Park Hye Su's time to be introduced and interviewed and then she sang... Her voice was beautiful... I enjoyed the song, but also feeling impatient to see Joo Won to appear...
And then he entered the stage... I quickly took some snaps..... then at one point, I put down my phone, and saw him with my bare eyes... Joo Won, in front of me... I was in awe and cried... He was smiling so handsomely... His eyes were sparkling... and he kept his smiles on most of the time... GOSH!!!! HE IS SOOOOOO HANDSOME!!! He's more handsome in real life... He's more handsome than he was in his pictures, dramas, movies.... He's just so handsome! 
I kept on looking at him, and kept my phone inside my pocket, I just wanted to capture him inside my eyes and in my memory... 
Ah well, I kept on looking at him and really enjoyed listening to his voice... until I felt my legs were numb and my vision was blurry.... I wasn't able to see him until the end of the meeting... I wasn't able to get more pictures of him... I was escorted by the security out of the crowd, to be seated on a chair... until I decided to go home...
Although my moaty spirit screamed to me to jump to the stage to hug him... but I guess, this old body denied all the spirits inside of me... 
Thank you for the great memory, great experience.... thank you to the kind girls in front of me, who helped me to call out the security... I didn't even get your names... Thank you for the ladies from JWCIFC... Thank you @mrdimples ~ also @ameliajjh 

Thank you Joo Won... For finally coming to Singapore... For letting me seeing your handsome face, tall body, sweet smile... For letting me listening to your voice... I will never forget the experiences... the memory...
That would be my first and LAST fan-girling experience...
If Joo Won comes to Singapore again... I hope I could join the seated VIP meeting... *grin*    

 

PS: Why can't I tag??? :w00t:
