She completely got spellbound by Eric :lol:

 

The part she said he is some one who does houseworks... it makes me laugh. Because I remember Eric's replied to a troll's comment on his YT asking if he has nothing to do.... Eric said he has a Fanmeeting, a variety show, a concert, drama and houseworks to do... so he'll be busy till the end of the year and thanks for the concern.  AHAHAHAHA I love it so much when he threw in 'houseworks'!!!!   The manliest thing a man can do for his wife/woman.  :lol:

 

 

190315 [Passersby Report] Shinhwa’s Eric & Minwoo with #4WheeledRestaurant: I Coincidentally Met a Big Star
 
tumblr_inline_pohcapuaQT1qcufwd_1280.jpg

 

*** NOTE: There wasn’t much of spoilers but if you don’t want any spoilers before the show is on air, don’t continue.  Also, please credit the source as well as the translation credits properly if you repost or re-translate to another language. Thank you and enjoy!


 

#MunJungHyuk #Eric, I am a passerby and coincidentally met a big star. Because I can understand the fans’ feelings, I decided to write this report. There was too much to write about, so I couldn’t write all at once. I will continue tomorrow. As for the photos, please do not repost without credit, thank you.

 

PasserbyReport - Really, I was just a passerby.  If it’s not because of my friend, even if all the gods are in front me, I would not even recognise anyone of them. I’m just just a passerby.

 

Today is the first day of 2019 Off the Grid Fort Mason Spring Returns. It was Friday after work and I was to hang out with my boyfriend over drinks and conversations. Coincidentally, a colleague of mine, who is a fan of Shinhwa, mentioned that they will be in San Francisco filming a variety show by running a food truck that will showcase Korean cuisine.  However, she was not sure where they would be today. According to my colleague, they were at Civic Center 2 days earlier, somewhere near UN Square. So that means they should be working in partnership with Off the Grid (t/n: food truck festival in the San Francisco Bay Area). From a foodie’s research, it should be at Off The Grid at Fort Mason next.  After all, it is the biggest food truck night market in the northern states. And today is the first day of the 2019 season.

 

When I arrived there with my boyfriend, the first session had been sold out and they were about to start the second session. Coincidentally, there were not many music fans disturbing the majority of the patrons who were there for food and drinks. The food trucks attracting the longest queues were the handful of the popular branches and those sell alcohol.

 

My colleague was already there waiting for the second session to start. When I returned after buying my wine, I heard the PD standing there explaining to the customers that in order to show a certain sense of reality, they can not have too many fans, and no photo taking. The seats in front of the food truck were only for ‘local foreigners’. This is in order for them to get this target group to experience Korean cuisine (I will talk about the food quality another time).

 

(omit this part because it contains spoilers)

 

When I was queuing with my colleague, a few of the gents appeared. As I am just a passerby, I was not able to tell who was who, so I could only recognise by their headbands.

 

tumblr_inline_pohca6NM8v1qcufwd_1280.jpg

 

Mr Mun’s stature is not short, he stands out physically.  If my colleague didn’t tell me, I would not have known that he has reached middle age. He didn’t give me a greasy feeling, but gave off a very comfortable vibe. Most importantly, if it’s not for the cameras nearby, you will not feel he has any awkward in the Korean food truck. He blended in perfectly with the environment.

 

During the whole preparation process, he was conversing very softly with his co-workers, a very carefree feeling. Although he is not the main chef, you can tell that he is the kind that does houseworks. His movements were effortlessly, not sluggish. For a northern China slang, we can call it “nimble” (t/n: quick and neat movements). As a stranger, if I am to say what was the beauty of this scene, I would describe it as “harmonious.” Mr Mun’s movements were fast but never paused unnecessarily, very smooth movements, not tensed, and his hands were very steady.

 

My colleague was the first in the queue. However, 2 girls jumped the queue, but the crew didn’t stop them. Because it was in the midst of filming, we didn’t say anything. I was the 3rd to order. Since I knew they served rice, I was so happy and excited! The person in charge of taking orders was very easy. He had a nice and gentle voice. Before this, the crew said that we could pay with Apple Pay, so I left my wallet in my bag. When it came to payment time, the little brother told me that it was not possible. They could only accept credit card and cash. So I had to put down the stuffs in my hands and looked for my wallet. The little brother was very patient. When I said, “aaye, so we can’t use it? But your staff said it was ok. Give me a moment to look for my wallet“, he apologised on behalf of the crew for the inconvenience. Very polite. During that time, he got called over by Mr. Mun. I couldn’t hear what they said. Nonetheless, Mr Mun’s tone was very gentle. He had a very good tone.

 

tumblr_inline_pohc9o0WDT1qcufwd_1280.jpg

 

After ordering, I quickly whipped out my camera to take a view of the surroundings.

 

When it was time to collect my food, it was Mr. Mun who brought it over. As I was standing a distance away, I didn’t hear him when my order was first called out. I only heard it the second time. When I went over, Mr Mun was very thoughtful and bent over to keep the bowl from tilting. He also cautioned me to be careful. He felt like a very gentle and polite person. His voice was very nice to hear. In close distance, he gave me a very comfortable feeling. He shouldn’t be called fresh and cool, he should be called gentle which is better.

Hi Phi,  hahaha - did he answer that? Smart boy! There's nothing wrong to do houseworks..... Men should be able to help around the house without a problem. ... Housework should be shared by both men and women because they are both living in the same home. ... They say that - Real men do housework. That's why, there's a study that I read some time ago that women find men who do housework sexy. :lol:

Yes, he did threw in housework hahaha I think it's a bit of salvage since the person's question was obviously tried shade him for not having anything to do that he's doing YT lol   It doesn't surprise me that he does housework since he's been a bachelor for  20+ years before marriage :lol:   I agree, housework should be shared by both instead of it's just the wife's job.   I love seeing them doing grocery shopping together instead of 'her job'.  Agree with that study.  Man doing housework is the manliest thing one can do for his gals :)

190317 [Fanaccount] Shinhwa’s Eric & Minwoo at Off The Grid: Last Night Was So Satisfying
 
tumblr_inline_pojngmz5lk1qcufwd_1280.jpg

 

As a fan of Eric and Shinhwa fan, last night was so satisfying. :joy:

 

Let’s start with Eric. Is he really a forty-year-old guy? Why does he look so youthful and dashing!! Eric was responsible for shouting the orders to the kitchen (such as informing how many Jjajang noodles, how many Champong) and order collection, as well as other miscellaneous tasks. Rapper’s voice shouting out orders in English was very manly. My order number was 53. Although it’s now the next morning but I am still reminiscing Eric’s calling out “fifty three”.

 

tumblr_inline_pok4wx9b7o1qcufwd_1280.jpg

 

He really is a person who is full of life. When a table was left uncleared, he would quickly come down from the truck and ran over to clean up the table. His movements was very agile, exuding leadership qualities even when he was just working in a food truck. :heart:

 

The deepest impression was when it was at night time. Watching from a distance, him in his red bandana and big white shoes, striding so handsomely that one can scream…. to the toilet  :o

 

In conclusion, Eric is very handsome, scholarly kind, even when he was very immersed in his tasks and showed his arms. He is still a very dashing man. :kiss_wink:

 

tumblr_inline_pojnh0ltJ51qcufwd_1280.jpg

 

Let’s talk about the 2nd guy!

 

Did he grow up consuming cuteness because why is he so cute? He was in charged of cooking the noodles which was really tough. Although many times I saw his face cringed when steam touched it, I also witnessed him bobbing his head as he listened to the music.

 

Once all the food was sold out, he finally relaxed and that was when his cuteness index shot up a level. He couldn’t help himself and started dancing, swirling the chair, sitting on it then jumping up on it kinda stuff…. so playful.

 

Lastly, let’s talk about their interaction. Honestly speaking, the main reason why for a person like me who is not very bothered with Korean entertainment scene but yet have been attracted to Shinhwa is due to Shinhwa’s twenty years of “team spirit”. After working for 5 hours, watch them just chilling out, joking around was such a precious sight, just like cute teenagers. :joy:

 

tumblr_inline_pojni0rPyh1qcufwd_1280.jpg

 

I wish that the variety show will be a success, waiting for the broadcast. I also wish Big Brother and Second Brother to have a fruitful and memorable time.

I really love this short clip.  The customers went to shakehand with Eric to thank for the meal.  It's very usual in the western world but rarely seen in K-biz.  So the handshake had me abuse that play button numerous times. Call me bias if you well, Eric looks very charismatic there. :)

It feels like ages since the last sighting of Eric in America for 4 Wheels Restaurant!

I'm loving these updates on Shinhwa's Birthday!!  :wub::wub:

 

Aside from RicDy's updates, RicJin pics in Shinhwa's 21st Anniversary updates are the are current ones.

Looks like they had a dance practice :)

10 Older Romance K-Dramas That You Need To See

 

It feels like just yesterday I was watching these K-dramas as a kid, which are now referred to as “older K-dramas.”

 

It’s easy to get excited and sucked into the dramatic world of K-dramas these days, but there are lots of K-dramas from way back when that can be thoroughly enjoyed today. Here’s a look at 10 of those older K-dramas that you should definitely give a watch!

 

 

Que Sera Sera

que-sera-sera.jpg

 

Eric Mun plays Kang Tae Joo, an event planner who falls in love with a poor girl by the name of Han Eun Soo (Jung Yu Mi). Their relationship gets complicated when Cha Hye Rin (Yoon Ji Hye) and Shin Joo Hyuk (Lee Kyu Han) step into the picture. Hye Rin and Tae Joo get into a fake relationship with each other to make Joo Hyuk jealous, but Hye Rin’s feelings for Tae Joo become real, which complicates his relationship with Eun Soo.

 

The plot is pretty hectic and there’s a lot of emotional investment involved in the series, but it’s definitely a must-watch just on the fact that it keeps you on your toes throughout the whole series. If you’re looking for a good dramatic watch, this one has got the angst and toxicity of an all time high. You’ll also be able to see the epic chemistry between Eric Mun and Jung Yu Mi — not to be missed!

My feeling is conflicted.  I didn't quite like the plot, especially the characteristic of the male lead who has so many phobias and allergies.  It has so much potential to be an annoying jerk.  The PD and script writer don't have much previous works so it could either hit or complete fail.  And KBS's prime time dramas don't tend to do well with the rating.  So, I'm glad Eric declined this one but not going to lie that I do feel sad also since it'll be a little longer to see him back on screen.

 

I wonder if he declined because Go Jun Hee was dragged to JJY & Seungri's group chat (the noona actress that went to New York).  But then it feels like he turned it down earlier but the production didn't make it official till more than a month later... Cuz on his official site, they didn't post the initial casting offer news but post the article that said it wasn't official and he was still in talk/consideration.

Thanks so much for sharing.  Glad to see Que Sera Sera made the list.  It's one of those I'm glad Eric took such risky character instead of an underdog, likable one that everyone will root for.

And the way Eric looked at Hyemi :wub:

It's known how much Eric loves comfy hoodies and sweatshirts. Hyemi seems to like them too for casual outings (with or without hubby).  Like husband, like wife :lol:


I think she wore the same sweatshirt Eric wore in 3 Meals A Day.  Couple clothes is no doubt sweet but wearing hubby's / BF's clothes is even sweeter. :wub:

Hi Phi, thanks for sharing the pictures.  The couple looks as if they're still on honeymoon-stage. Eric looks like a very sweet man & husband. Hyemi is such a lucky girl. I always love Eric when in casuals. He looks manlier in my eyes. Their coordinating outfits—are common for couples in SK. To living outside SK, it might seem odd & weird. But the distinctive look is a natural outgrowth of current Korean cultural trends. South Korea glorifies the couple. Koreans think dressing alike is viewed as a way to show how much the couples love each other. My female K-friend says that when she matches hoodies or sneakers with his BF it increases their closeness. :P

I like him casual or dressed up :lol:  Some people here in Ottawa do like the couple clothes but I agree that it's not much of a crave like South Korea (and most asian countries too I think?).  Is while I like that matching couple clothes is sweet, wearing his is even more sentimental.  I read that apparently the current trend is couple taking photo of their hand where the girl wrapping her fingers around her guy's index finger. I wonder if it means anything XD

190412 ‘Will The Locals Eat It: U.S. Edition’, from Jajangmyeon → Kimchi Fried Rice, the program will showcase 21 different dishes

 

tumblr_inline_ppx3ccRJgz1qcufwd_1280.png

 

Will The Locals Eat It?’ U.S. edition will return at 11 p.m. on April 18th.

 

Will The Locals Eat It?’ (also known as 4 Wheeled Restaurant) is a variety show aiming to win the hearts of locals with food from their food truck. Returning from last season in China, Chef Lee Yeon-bok will lead the team joined by singer Eric Mun, Lee Min-woo, John Park and comedian Heo Kyung-hwan. They charmed their way into the Western US with recipes targeted towards Americans.  

 

The teaser trailer revealed on 12th was only 3 minutes long but it was just enough to take a peek at how the team was managing their food truck. With his immensely popular Korean Chinese dishes in both Korea and China, Chef Lee Yeon-bok seemed confident, asking his team “Don’t you think people are going to love Jajangmyeon wherever we go?”  In particular, people dying to grab a bite and a local child digging into Jajangmyeon was quite a scene.

 

The U.S. has its own stable of popular food trucks which is not so surprising since U.S. is the place where the food truck craze started. It would be interesting to see how the team battle out with the local food trucks. After watching people line up for BBQ chicken food trucks in the U.S., Chef Lee Yeon-bok created his own signature chicken recipe. Heo Kyung-hwan in season two got to taste Chef’s sweet and spicy chicken and joked “I think you are better off with this chicken than the other menu.

 

All the members were so immersed with running the food truck, it looked as if they completely forgotten what their original job was.  This is definitely going to be fun to watch. Eric started to lose his voice after hours of shouting orders and Lee Min-woo said of Eric, “I’ve never seen him shout that loud even on the stage. John Park is born and raised in the U.S. so he had no trouble taking orders. Even Chef Lee Yeon-bok spoke highly of John Park saying “He can definitely work as an executive manager at a hotel.” 4 Wheeled Restaurant veterans Heo Kyung-hwan and Lee Min-woo bringing in their knowledge and experience into the scene is also something to look for.

 

The team is prepared to water the mouth of the locals and the viewers with 21 dishes including Chef Lee Yeon-bok’s signature Jajangmyeon and Tangsuyuk (sweet & sour pork) along with Menbosha (fried shrimp sandwich), Mapo Tofu, Special Kimchi Fried Rice for the upcoming “4 Wheel Restaurant” U.S. edition.

 

Season premiere will be on April 18th at 11p.m.
