YEEEEEES!! Baron's new thread!! My love finally has another thread here! ^^ :wub:

(His first thread back in 2008 got archived due to inactivity. T_T lol)

Thank you for joining me @akinahana89! You sure are fast. I have not posted the link yet at the Bromance thread because I'm still gathering materials. I love his eyes..what can I say. We are still in the getting to know you stage, but I feel that after Bromance, more people would want to see his pictures and updates. Thank you about the information regarding his thread. I tried to look for one earlier to post pictures but could not find one, so I thought of opening a thread for him.

The first post is still a work in progress...please bear with me. ^^

In the succeeding posts, I'm going to feature photos from Baron's recent drama "Bromance" and alternate that with his latest photos. From time to time, I will post about his past dramas and movies. Please feel free to post anything about Baron or River, both of his names sound cool, don't you think? English translations of his interviews would be so much welcomed by everyone who would like to get to know him more. Thank you.
