Ok, let me see…. the 229 yen sports shoes look nice with a touch of pink (doesn’t the N logo look like New Balance logo?). The 49 yen portable mini speakers look cute, provided that they do have solid speaker sound.

Hmm, Zegda is a Chinese brand, so it’s strange why all the prices are in Japanese yen. I couldn’t find any online order form on their website.

"Let me cry" – clear version

I’m kind of a slow person when it comes to accepting or liking some songs. No problem with “Marry me Mary” OST – I love all four songs by Jang Keun Suk.

Here’s a snapshot of my thoughts process:

1st time listening: [playing it softly during lunchtime in office] I just heard a lot of loud noise…. Rock is not my preferred music …. Shucks, what is going to happen if I don’t like JKS’ song?! OMG…. @_@

2nd time: I still hear a lot of loud noise ….

Wrap-up: "You're my Pet" Ibaraki press conference

Aphrael77’s Note:
I would like this article, which gives quite a detailed account of the press conference, to be my last post wrapping up the entire event, so that I don’t continue to blog bits and pieces of news. Also, I added from many sources various video clips and also some pictures that Sukbar eels touched up themselves, so that these pics are of higher resolution than what the Japanese media released. In fact, some Sukbar eels are grumbling about why Japan, being reputed as the maker of cameras, are releasing media photographs which are not of high resolution (haha~).

Apologies in advance if I’m not able to give proper credits (they’re all from various eels in Sukbar) due to the length of the post and well, I get confused sometimes taking from various sources. Anyway, just to say that I’m very thankful to various sources for providing the information and the lovely pics. If I duplicate any pic or video, sorry. Am getting tired after a long day and my mind’s not focusing …

I do have some thoughts arising from the article, but let’s discuss them later, shall we? 🙂

On 3 March, the Korean version “You’re my Pet” press conference was held at the South Park near Ibaraki Airport, with the main characters Jang Keun Suk, Kim Ha-neul and Choi Jong Hoon and the director Kim Byung Gon in attendance. This is the first time that a Korean movie press conference is held at an airport and at an outdoor location; even the media found it a refreshing experience. Like the audience, almost all of the media rushed there from Tokyo, and most took the chartered coaches provided by the organisers. Some reporters commented laughingly that “this interview feels like an outing”.

The press conference attracted nearly 16,000 fans to compete for the 3,000 admission tickets. Before the start of the event, many groups of fans waited along the road, with the majority of the fans carrying placards and props in support of Jang Keun Suk. Upon questioning, the reporter found out that these fans did not get the ticket and specially came to catch a glimpse of their idol. It was estimated that there were 4,000 fans waiting outside.

Choi Jong Hoon shared, “Keun Suk and Hong-ki are good friends, then I usually also talk to Keun Suk a lot on the phone. When Hong-ki knew about it, he phoned me and said in jealousy that he would beat me to death if I called his brother again.”

Unfortunately, fantastic as they are, I’ve got to restrain myself, so they are not on my to-buy list at the moment… though I don’t mind waiting 1 to 2 years to see if the price will drop, haha~
