Ji Chang Wook 지창욱 - Upcoming Projects: Movie "Punishment" / Current Drama "Backstreet Rookie / Convenience Store Saet Byul"

Recommended Posts

The Rice Wreaths are being displayed at the building for the press conference of drama Backstreet Rookie. Based on the videos on Dreame Rice Wreath Twitter, there are about 16 different donating groups from JCW fans in many different countries such JCW Philippines (2 groups), JCW global supporters, Star&Moon, JCW Taiwan, Day Rock, JCW_international, JCW Russia (2 groups), JCW Latin America, JCW’s Kitchen, JCW China, JCW Japan, Jilight Soompiers, JCW Hongkong Wookies, JCW Thailand Naja. I do some calculation for the total rice weight, it is 4370 kg total. It’s interesting that fans from Russia are very enthusiastic. They donate 600 kg of rice, and have sent food trucks to Backstreet Rookie’s filming site twice so far.

 

Watch these 2 videos, and let me know if I miss anything or if my calculation is wrong , he he...:P

NO MORE EMBEDDED INSTAGRAM POSTS FOR SOOMPI!! until further notice.

 See below:  

 

"i-subliminally-saw-this-coming.jpg

close quote.

 

I had a sneaking suspicion this was coming back in late May.  Instagram was blocking, or in some instances semi-blocking my IG posts for music copyright violations, depending on which countries around the world might still hold copyrights; this was happening without seemingly any reason, especially even if the same identical music was still up on YouTube. (Of course, YouTube and Instagram are separate corporation/entities and don't have the same governing rules.) 

 

It became obvious to me that the IG "restrictions" were new, and much more stringent than previously, and then I read in US news sources some of the court results regarding IG not granting sub-licenses, etc. as above, and realized that I needed to make some changes!  I quit posting any IG content until I could realign my thinking with whatever creative impulses I possessed! Back to the ole drawing board!

 

I am writing this, along with the Soompi announcement, as purely personal explanation of why I have not posted as much as previously.  It has nothing to do with my appreciation of Ji Chang Wook which remains in full force!

 

Many of us are awaiting final rulings and explanations with bated breath.

I’m happy for JCW that he chooses the right drama project this time. It’s fun, light-hearted, totally enjoyable to watch the first episode of Backstreet Rookie. If I love it, I think many other audiences may feel the same. 
Last night he was live on Instagram, but I missed it because there’s no advance notice about it. However, there’s an English sub video of the Instagram live on Francejcw Twitter.

Let me help with that.  I posted this in the "Backstreet Rookie" thread earlier today:

 

A short version is:  Instagram is now owned by Facebook.  Facebook went to court after the acquisition in order to 'protect' their intellectual property; i.e., anything that is posted by anyone is considered "owned" by Instagram.  IG is making claims that they own the contents of these IG accounts via a 'licensing agreement' that is baked into IG's EULA (terms and conditions you agree to in order to create an account).  And since Facebook, Instagram and Soompi are companies all venued in the USA, this ruling only affects USA-based social media platforms at present.  (Europe and AsiaPac have their own court rulings that do not cover USA-based social media.)

 

By reposting IG posts into other portals, what it all basically boils down to is that IG wants to keep their fat hands on any advertising dollars potentially made by any IG accounts.  Remember, the more clicks, the more $$$ goes into Facebook's pockets.

 

Now this is only a "preliminary ruling," which means a court could overturn it at any time if social media platforms counter-sue to void the PRO.  I'm not holding my breath that any social media conglomerate has that kind of coin to take on Facebook.  But good luck to the ones that try!  아자 아자 아자 아자 화이팅! :P

There’s an article about “The K2” drama’s success in Greece.

I believe JCW is aware of this news too. I’m sure he’s happy to know that. :)

At the end of episode 6 of Backstreet Rookie it will be his birthday. It’s been 7 years already since I first heard of him. If I want to send him a birthday card, is it best to send to Glorious Entertainment Agency’s address?

The general public is limited to only sending cards, small envelopes (#10 size) or postcards to Glorious - anything larger than that (packages or on-site deliveries such as flowers, etc.) will be refused.  It is best to first request permission from Glorious before sending any mailings to their offices by emailing them at glorious_ent@daum.net.

Thanks @cherkell for the information. I guess during this Covid pandemic, it’s not so safe for them to receive gift packages from fans. I also thought about birthday postcards.

 

I’m surprised to know that JCW is a new endorser for a Hongkong beverage brand Tao Ti. I guess you can update the first page about this. It’s interesting that JCW has quite more endorsement offers from overseas than his own country.

Actually, the crackdown on massive amounts of packages being delivered and fans randomly showing up at the Glorious HQ at all hours of the day and night were the tipping point for them to put their foot down.  These have been the rules in place since before Wook left for his military service in August 2017, and I am so glad that Glorious finally took some serious action.

 

And yes, we heard rumours about the Tao Ti endorsement a few months ago, but until we could independently verify the gossip, we took the news with a grain of salt.  There have been other Chinese 'endorsements' featuring Wook that never came to fruition.  Trust, yet verify.  ^_^

Wonderful positive things going on in JiWook's World, what with Backstreet Rookie a success, and a birthday coming up. As for me, I am lagging behind because I had to haul my old software tools out of mothballs, and link them with a new software tool that will bring me much joy.  I finally have something to exhibit, but it is coming out on the day that Wook just published more new 1st Look material!  Oh well, sometimes things are just a day late and a dollar short.

There's one more under the spoiler.  It was really fun to put together because it shows a tracked picture in picture.  And it was primarily fun because of the main attraction.  But then, that's why a lot of us are here in the first place.  Enjoy!

To be sure, these are GIFs created from movie.mp4 footage.  They are not Instagrams or anything of the sort; it's back to the days of no music, at least for the time being here in Soompi Social Points Palace, Ji Chang Wook pages.

The fashion mavens at 1stLook can dress this man in anything.....from combat boots to neoprene wetsuit bottoms (no wait, that was in Melting Me Softly ~ LOL ) and he still looks like a gazillion bucks, yen, won, pesos, geld, dinero, etc., etc., etc.  And I am seeing double in this tribute.  

 

Also celebrating Actor Wook achieving 12.8 Million IG Followers.  Go....Wook!
