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

 

Hi Phi,  In Asian countries like China, Japan, and particularly South Korea, wearing “couple clothes” is the equivalent of making things Facebook official. hahaha - In Western culture, dressing as a couple is usually reserved for Christmas cards and Halloween costumes. LOL - Now, they again invented cutest gesture - forget thumbs up, the no. 1 sign, it's dead. Peace signs? Well, still CUTE but something better has come along.............. the crossing your thumb & your index finger + the one you mentioned above, maybe. Honestly, the one you mentioned is new to me & just heard this from you - While I was in Seoul last December I kept noticing "this thing" MORE - crossing the thumb & your index finger. A FINGER HEART! It's really ridiculously adorable. Now, it's just a normal & CUTE thing everyone does everywhere. At the Olympics they sold official gloves that are literally made for making finger hearts. :P

Hi Willenette, I saw that new couple thing of the girl holding her bff/hub index finger and take a photo on twitter. I was to find it and post the pic together with that post but I so hard to backtrack cuz someone retweet it.  I was surprised too since I don't see that on SNS yet.  May be it's not prominent as it's just a couple thing where as the cute fingers heart is very universal for anyone. :D

190417 ‘4 Wheeled Restaurant’ Heads to the United States

 

tumblr_inline_pq4umtZqfx1qcufwd_1280.png

 

Cable network tvN’s reality cooking program “4 Wheeled Restaurant” heads to the United States for its third season, which premieres on Friday at 11 p.m. The cast of the season features chef Lee Yeon-bok, members of the boy band Shinhwa Eric and Lee Min-woo, entertainer Heo Kyeong-hwan and singer John Park. Eric and Park are new additions to the cast.

We chose the cast based on certain standards,” said producer Lee Woo-hyong. “We wanted them to speak fluent English, have a knack for cooking and work well with others.

Lee briefly mentioned the absence of singer Jung Joon-young, who was cast to be a part of the program. He left while the show was being filmed after he was summoned for questioning by police when he was charged with illegally shooting videos of himself having sex with women without their consent and sharing the files.

There were some edits necessary and it took longer than expected, but despite the inconvenience, we did our best, and we are confident that viewers will enjoy the program.

Luckily for them, Lee Min-woo was able to fill the vacancy without any problem. “Actually, [my appearance] was scheduled a month before the actual shooting,” he said. “Eric texted me so many times to come to the United States and help out, but I really couldn’t reply back because I was already on the plane.

This season, the cast traveled to the United States for two weeks to serve “Korean Soul food” from their food truck under the guidance of chef Lee.

I wonder how jajangmyeon will sell in the West,” the chef says in a clip shown at a press conference held on Tuesday, talking about the favorite black bean noodle dish. “Can jajangmyeon become globally popular?

The chef considers the dish to be just as Korean as it is Chinese. After spending the second season of the show in China, Lee learned that jajangmyeon is seen as a Korean novelty dish there. Although the main menu items on the food truck are Chinese, the group spontaneously added Korean snacks and dishes to draw more customers.

For the chef, selling his food in a totally different culture was a new challenge that he was glad to take on.

To see Americans enjoy our food boosted my confidence that the world is ready for Korean-style jajangmyeon,” Lee said. “As viewers will find out, our group’s chemistry and teamwork turned out to be flawless for the job.”

For the show’s third season, Chinese cuisine chef Lee Yeon-bok, Shinhwa’s Eric, Lee Min-woo, singer John Park and comedian Heo Kyung-hwan headed to Los Angeles and San Francisco to run a food truck that offered “Korean soul foods.”

Many people may wonder why we did not sell Western dishes in the U.S,” Yeon-bok said. “But I wanted to know how Americans would react to so-called ‘Koreanized’ Chinese cuisine that I cook.” He used the term “Koreanized,” since many of his “Chinese” dishes are different from original dishes found in China.

He also offered several Korean dishes including “Korean-style hot dogs.”

You might be able to see how Americans enjoy Korean food on our program,” Eric said. “My cooking ability also improved after working with Lee Yeon-bok.

Heo said: “I will appear in the fourth season, too, if the viewership rating hits 7.32 percent.” He was in the second season that featured a food truck in China.

“4 Wheeled Restaurant” will premiere at 11 p.m. on Thursday.

190422 Shinhwa promises to stay with fans ‘forever’ at 21st anniversary concert

 

image

 

Living up to its reputation as the longest-running K-pop act to date, Shinhwa’s 21st anniversary concert in Seoul was nothing if not legendary. It wasn’t because of a high-end set or elaborate special effects – it was the K-pop gurus’ unique ability to hold a crowd in the palm of their hands and make them feel secure, comfortable and loved that made the annual show so special.

 

Drawing over 20,000 fans, the six-piece band held its two-day concert at the Olympic Park’s Olympic Gymnastics Arena over the weekend. Titled “Chapter 4,” the set was divided into four parts, chronicling Shinhwa’s lengthy career since the band’s debut in 1998 until last year.

 

Kicking off the Saturday concert with its debut hit, “Resolver,” Shinhwa filled the over-three-hour affair with as many as 30 songs, including “Perfect Man,” “I Pray 4 U,” “Brand New,” “Shooting Star” and “Kiss Me Like That.” The group’s die-hard fans, many clad in orange – the act’s trademark color – waved orange light sticks and chanted “Shinhwa Changjo” throughout. “Shinhwa Changjo” refers to the group’s official fan base.

After pumping up the crowd with “Wild Eyes,” the band greeted fans by promising an amazing show and asking fans to “go crazy.”

 

Expressing his affection toward the fans, Lee Min-woo said during the show, “I feel like I’m caught up in the group called ‘Shinhwa Changjo,’ as if my mistakes are all warmly embraced. I saw our fans while dancing, and they were all enjoying our performance. Thank you so much for having fun with us.”

 

“Shinhwa won’t ever be taken down. We might get old, but our talent won’t get old,” he added.

 

Although most of the band members are in their early 40s, Shinhwa proved to its fans that time doesn’t matter with the dynamic energy the artists showed during fast-paced numbers like “Oh” and “Sniper.” With toned-down tracks like “Destiny of Love” and fan song “Orange,” the band whipped the crowd into a frenzy.

Referring to the ear-splitting screams from the audience, Shin Hye-sung joked, “I think I should apologize to the staff of this venue, as I think the ceiling got cracked. I will pay for the damage.

 

While the overall atmosphere was perky and bright, there were a few emotional moments too. Fans surprised the group toward the end by singing the melodic “Prayer” in unison. Shinhwa reciprocated their love by projecting heartfelt video messages for fans onto the screen.

 

We will keep performing on stage as long as we are healthy,” said Kim Dong-wan via the screen, and Lee Min-woo promised fans that he wouldn’t just leave them without any notice.

Wrapping up the concert with classics “Eusha! Eusha!” “Time Machine,” “Run” and “Yo!” Shin said, “You (fans) will always be our priority, no matter what happens, and we’ll stay by your side forever. We won’t have a new member until our death.

 

Eric chimed in and said, “To me, my bandmates are at the top of my list and you guys (fans) are in second place. The six of us will stick together to fight against anything. I hope to take seeing you guys each year for granted.

 

We will always say we are like a beach that keeps its place despite the tide. You may come back to us whenever you want,” said Kim.

 

Andy also promised fans to do his best as part of Shinhwa for the next 20 to 30 years.

 

Shinhwa is the longest-running K-pop act in the scene that has remained together, despite management changes and the members’ mandatory service in the military. Often referred to as part of the “first generation” of K-pop, Shinhwa released the special album “Heart” in August last year, featuring the lead single “Kiss Me Like That.”

190617 Shinhwa’s Eric’s perspective on ‘4 Wheeled Restaurant’, what to look for, #Bufferic #Gear #Teamwork
 

image

 

Shinhwa’s Eric revealed what to look for on the newest episode of tvN’s ‘4 Wheeled Restaurant.’

On the 17th, Eric shared his thoughts on what to look for on the tvN’s 4 Wheeled Restaurant’s press conference. The press conference was shown through TOP Media’s official Youtube channel.

 

To the question on how difficult it was to work in a small food truck, Eric replied “I haven’t done much experience with running this business so the pace was a bit fast for me. But when customers began to rush in, it was lively and quite fun even though the work was hard.”

 

Eric, who said the team worked like a well-oiled machine, expressed his affection for the team saying, “The kitchen and the front of the house had  perfect chemistry.”

 

When asked about the nickname ‘Bufferic’ that he gained during his previous show, tvN’s ‘3 Meals a Day’, Eric replied, “From picking a menu to distributing works, I had a lot of things to juggle at once. But this time, we have Chef (Lee Yeon-Bok) so it is less stressful. We worked like clockwork under his leadership.”

 

When asked who he wants to bring in as a new member next time, Eric answered “I would say Andy. He works hard, is very diligent and efficient.
