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

The reason why JW was bending down and looking at the man. Cr as tagged. Many asked me why I like JW and why I like him for so long?  THIS. Plus his acting. 

I didn't realize this until just now... Joo Won is like an idol. :D  Everywhere he goes, there are fans just waiting to flail about in happiness.  @badsmuler those pics are amazing!!

@yonaomi123...

No wonder JW was said that Indonesian fans are very enthusiastic... :wub::wub:

I don't know exactly what time JW was arrived at the airport but those fans had already waited for him since 3 a.m and not all of them live in Jakarta... !!!!!

The event itself actually for 300 lucky fans but as you can see, thousands people was there... :w00t: Thats why most fans said JW should do her own fans meeting in Indonesia soon... :wub:

The fans were singing him " Happy B-Day " and prepared birthday cake too...

What a day it has been! Joo Won is seriously very good looking in person and very tall! He's got a seriously charming and unassuming air about him that's very endearing and genuine. He did look very tired though... Will give a proper update later after I've updated my OS... :P

Just came back from the fanmeet :)  it was very very crowded . I went 3hrs earlier ,I was quite confident that I could see and take picture of joowon to share. but when joowon arrived the situation went chaos all I see was the back heads of other people :((((  I moved to level 2(no space for me to stand) then to level 1 again, then finally to level 3 . the screams there were deafening . oh and there were fans ranging from a 5 year old girl to an old uncle! Still can't believe that I saw joowon in real lifeee :w00t:   joowon is really really tall! When I was at level 2 I could not even see park hye su's head(I was standing facing the back of the stage) but I can see joowon head very clearly :vicx: (sorry park hye soo fans not saying she is short but ya)

Joo Won's press conference for Yong Pal in Singapore, hosted by ONE TV Asia @ Grand Park Hotel, Singapore on 10 Oct 2015 @ 1445h

Joo Won's press conference to promote Yong Pal with ONE TV Asia was held in a private dining room within Mitzo Restaurant & Bar. The room had been cleared of its tables and in their place a small stage was set up with the ONE TV Asia Yong Pal backdrop. There were an estimated 40-50 people in the room, mostly from the press with some from ONE TV Asia's media partners such as Starhub and Singtel.

At 3pm, Joo Won arrived through a side door to the room (one wonders if that door actually led to the stair well or some service passage because it was essentially the "exit" from the room) with Park Hye Soo, their interpreter (who was very pretty!) and ONE TV Asia's host for the afternoon. The session started with the usual pleasantries - it was his first trip to Singapore apparently, and Park Hye Soo's second (she had visited with her family before). The opening question was directed at Joo Won, asking him about how he had found the filming experience for Yong Pal and if he could identify the most difficult scene that he filmed, what it would be. He said that there were so many scenes that were challenging, particularly when at the beginning of filming, he was in almost 55 out of 60 scenes that had to be shot. In addition, there were more action scenes at the start of the drama, and naturally those took more effort to shoot. However, Joo Won added that if he had to choose a scene, it would have to be a driving scene where there were multiple cameras attached to the car he had to drive. The cameras actually obstructed his view, so it was very difficult to film the car chase scenes. The host also asked the all important question about how well Joo Won was resting now that the drama is over, after all, everyone knew about him having lost 7kg during the filming of Yong Pal. Joo Won laughed at the question and assured the press that he always regains the wait he loses, particular because following the end of filming, he becomes less active and gaining weight becomes easy; he was now watching his diet.

Then the host asked questions that had been earlier submitted by members of the media. I didn't manage to record every question asked, nor did I record everything he said for the clips I recorded - I spent more time looking at Joo Won instead. Hahaha... I did capture the interpreter's portions though, so that no one has to attempt a sub on this one. :)

Joo Won was asked about how it was acting with Park Hye Soo in the drama 

Qn: what advice would you give your 15-year-old self?

This was cute. Just before I captured this portion, Joo Won was all, "Hmmm... ah... gawsh... that was some 14 years ago now! I need to think..." 

Joo Won was asked how he felt about taking up another medical drama 

 Joo Won's parting words to Singapore Media

Joo Won really looks good in person - photos do him no justice. He is as tall as his bio states him to be and as cute as all of us imagine he is. I'm not sure if his basic personality is one that is relatively low in energy, but I did get the impression that he was tired. Despite apparent fatigue, he maintained a sincere and unassuming disposition which was absolutely charming. In all a very nice way to have spent my afternoon.

Hi hi guys, I just came back from the fan meet! :) It was an awesome experience! :D Haha I arrived 3 hours earlier to the starting time same as @mel1004 and was surprised to see many people waiting there already! :o It was good though, shows that many fans are willing to wait for him and support him! When he appeared, he waved to everyone, quite an unique way to wave, both hands waving then his head look down afterwards, still while waving, hehe so cute. He appeared to me as a shy guy with a cute voice, not sure if he is tired or just a bit shy. Haha I love his voice! Park Hye Soo came out first to sing and introduce herself. She was asked some questions like how was Singapore and stuff I couldn't remember, sorry! She was really cute on stage too! Then Joo Won came out while she went to take a break. He was asked questions like if the personality Kim Tae Hyun has in the drama yongpal is similar to his, then he replied that they are similar in terms of responsibilities. Also, he was asked about romantic/memorable moments with Kim Tae Hee. He replied and said, rather than romantic moments, there was a moment whereby he fell asleep on one of the beds in the hospital besides Kim Tae Hee and snored, which was quite embarrassing to him. Haha. He played 3 simple games I guess? with 3 really lucky fans! I think it's the same as Indonesia's fan meet, the one to hug, stare at him or take selfie with him part. He was also concerned about us fans, telling us to go home safe and he feel bad for those who started waiting since morning. Yup, that's about it, my experience in Singapore fan meet. :)

back from jw's sg event! 

this was my first time going for such events so i wasn't expecting to have to wait so much longer past the actual start time of 7.15pm! the emcee was honestly starting to get on my nerves with all the "anytime now" etc and like cos of my sucky position i have to keep tiptoe-ing and looking past everyone's heads every time i thought jw was gonna come out.

BUT WHEN HE DID COME OUT FOR REAL, I REALIZED IT WAS SO WORTH THE WAIT.

JOOWON WAS SO AWESOME like when he walked out it really felt like he's superior; with that height and handsome face and aura <3 he came out while doing his cute waving thing and i just OMG-ed. At where I was standing the sound system was really bad so I couldn't really hear very well what they were saying but regardless it was just surreal enough to see him in flesh and hear his voice so i'm just happy with that (: PHS was also lovely and sweet and i loved her singing! the song just gets nicer the more i listen to it haha. glad that she got her fair share of cheering too! not as outshadowed by joowon as i had actually expected.

he did appear to be slightly tired though hopefully can get some rest after this!

I think for someone who has been following Joo Won since Ojakgyo Brothers, I fail in many ways as a fan. When I was in Seoul, I saw him in the musical GHOST 3 times, no less. And that entire week, he didn't go down the escalator where fans were waiting. True, I was seated 5 rows from the stage but somehow, the lighting and makeup made me feel as if I didn't see Joo Won in person. When it came to fan projects, even when I was the one organizing, I never could go for all sorts of reason. I just didn't. 

At the end of Tomorrow Cantabile, I said I would stop fangirling Joo Won. I don't know if one ever retires from fangirling but I felt tired. Then Yong Pal came about, I ended up more involved in that drama than just a mere viewer or follower. I think I never wrote as much as I did on Joo Won's dramas as I did on YP drama thread and on DB. @ecs707a can attest to the absurd lengths I went through to write. Towards the end of Yong Pal, I think that fangirl in me revived a little. 

When I heard Joo Won was coming to Singapore, I knew I had to see him. Even if I fangirl no more, it's almost like I had a uncompleted task to fulfill. Plus there's nothing more thrilling than seeing your bias on your home ground. 

As a hard luck fan, nothing went right. I couldn't go to the airport. In any case, I lived through the experience live chatting with @rionae while she was there. It's the first time, I wondered why Singapore had 3 airport terminals. When you don't know the flight details, this is a nightmare. I will let her tell her story. 

I couldn't camp at Suntec City, the venue where the fan meet would be held because I had an important engagement which could not be moved. So I decided to try my luck waiting for Joo Won at the Press Conference venue. I was hoping to catch him just before he enters the restaurant. I waited for an hour, staring at the stream of people walking in, registering at the table and keeping my eye at the lifts, which Joo Won might appear from. I had @gilaswan to thank because she was an attendee and I asked her to update me just in case Joo Won was already in the restaurant. I thought it could be possible that he had lunch first in the restaurant, probably in a private room then adjourn to the press con. Of course I was hoping it wasn't true. Alas, my hopes were dashed. He was indeed already in the restaurant so I had not way of seeing him. 

I was running out of time and couldn't wait for pc to end so I went to my next appt with a heavy heart. 

By the time, I finished and reached Suntec City, it was past five. The area in front of the stage had been cordoned off. Did I mention I didn't win the autograph pass either? Anyway, I waited and waited and the crowd build up. I spied a possible entry point and I went to wait there because I figured with the crowd about 10 people deep, I couldn't get a good view of Joo Won. 

My legs were killing me but I couldn't give up. When 7.15pm came, the crowd screamed. I was at the back of the stage, I thought Joo Won had houdini his way there. But it was the MC, a popular local radio personality, celeb and good host. He worked the crowd and got the deafening screams he wanted. It took almost almost an hour to pick people from audience who would go up on stage and he played some games. I wasn't very sure because I just wanted him to get it over and done with. 

Then at around 8pm, suddenly there was a flurry among people standing in front of me, I laid my eyes on Joo Won for the very first time(if I can discount my GHOST experience).

Prior to today, I had told @gilaswan, who I knew was attending the press conference, that I wanted her opinion of Joo Won and a fan account. I knew her from Yong Pal thread and she's fairly new to Joo Won. I wanted a pair of fresh eyes so as to speak. I have heard of wonderful fan accounts but sometimes I wonder if hard core fangirls can lose their objectivity? I am not making light of their opinions, just that I wanted another perspective. I don't even trust myself at times. 

Guess what? @gilaswan's report was something that I have been told or read countless and countless of times. She told me: "He's very much better looking in person." I was like "Noooooo!" Not another person! She was incredulous that I didn't believe he is truly that. I think I made myself a nuisance always bugging @coolreborn and a couple others about what do they mean by he's much better looking in person. I am a die hard cynic, I guess. 

When Joo Won appeared in front of me today, about 5 metres away, I was floored. Finally, I knew what others had been getting at. I don't think I have seen anyone who looks remotely as good looking as him in real life. Not people that I know but just about every face I have seen. He looked exactly like he does on screen but much more good looking. No wonder, others can't describe it. You got to see him for yourself. All the girls around me screamed and screamed more they did when Joo Won did a back hand wave as he passed us. 

I won't post any pics because I couldn't get anywhere close to him to get a decent one. I was so peeved at several boy fans who blocked my view. There was even a boyfriend who let his girl sit on his shoulders while she feasted her eyes on Joo Won and snapped away. 

Joo Won looked very appreciative of the crowd. When he heard from the MC that some had started waiting at the venue as early as 8am, he was shocked and told fans to take care of themselves and return home safely after the event. Whenever he's not being interviewed or have pockets of time, Joo Won would actually scan the entire venue, he would hold his stare at say the crowd on the upper floor and smile. I saw this from different places because I was constantly trying to get a better view. When Joo Won stares at certain segment of the crowd and smiles, he has this knack of making people feel that he is looking at you, just you. Don't ask me how he does it. And of course, this drove people crazy and screaming ensued. 

They played games and had the autograph session. Then Joo Won and Park Hye Soo took selfies very much like the one he took in Jakarta with the crowd behind him.  He was clearly an expert at this. He actually took the pains to take in the upper and lower floor fans separately. Then they expressed their thanks and it was over before we knew it. 

I was thinking of making a beeline for the same barricade which I had stood to wait for his entrance but when I saw the crowd there, I decided to forget it and go home. I didn't managed to see Joo Won closer than I had hoped but I was happy.

As I got to the car park, searching for my car(actually I went to the wrong level), I saw a small crowd waiting in front of a lift lobby not too far away. And it had a barricade! This must be it. I went there and I could get an empty space just behind the barrier. The black 'mafia' vehicle which I had spotted in the hotel(press con) car park was parked right there, waiting for its passenger. I knew that must be Joo Won's vehicle. There was even someone who got ready to open the door, presumably so that he could jump right in, LOL. 

In less than a minute, Joo Won walked pass the glass door. He smiled and waved as he pass us. Just before he went into the vehicle, he turn slightly around and smiled one more time. he said something to the effect of thank you and take care. I don't know, my senses left me. He was beyond handsome. Again, in that short few seconds, he managed to captivate me with his stare. He doesn't know me of course but the way he does it, you feel as if he's really looking at you only. His eyes are so mesmerizing, almost like holding you in a trance. 

This time, besides seeing how gorgeous and cute he is, I saw something else. I saw a young man who's more mature and manly than his looks sometimes belie. He has this charisma and aura about him which just impact whoever who sees him. There's also this look in his eyes which speaks of someone who knows what he wants. I am too old to be intimidated by a mere 28 year old man but there's something steely in Joo Won. It's purely my intuition. I know now how he made it through 150 performances of Spring Awakening, I know now how he made it from an almost reject in Baker King to one of the most if not most respected actor for his acting skills among his peers. 

Thank you, Joo Won for enriching my drama watching and making it an wonderful place

 

I wasn't taking this vid properly because I was concentrating on looking at him :D

Count me in also. This is my first time seeing him and he is really handsome.Breathtaking. To the point where I fitted my eyes to him and failed to understand other things that the translator was saying. His face was so clear and angelic. I have some photos too but his real life image is so much different and more beautiful than we have ever seen on screen. I know it, This is just the beginning of me stalking Joo Won. He made me into a mad woman.
