Loving: Gong Yoo

GY1

Come squee with me! 😀 This post kicks off a new series on the blog. I hereby bring you: K-Love Confessions!

As you can see from the tagline up top, this blog is for reviews and fangirling, and while I’ve been busily posting reviews, the fangirling’s been limited to the context of the reviews.

I will admit, though, that in spite of that, there have been times that I’ve managed to fangirl very successfully anyway (see Big and The Moon that Embraces the Sun) Coz, y’know, a persistent fangirl lets nothing stand in her way! Heh.

Still. Here’s where the serious fangirling begins.

In each K-Love Confession, I will focus on one of my K-loves – I have several big ones, and quite a few medium-sized ones – and there will be extended fangirling and spazzing. And photos. Lots of photos 😉

Ahem. So where shall we begin?

Just from looking around my blog, you’d probably have guessed my biggest K-love of them all: Gong Yoo ♥ Swoon.

So of course, he had to be my first featured K-love.

GY2

ROUND 1:

I first set eyes on Gong Yoo in 2007 when he appeared on my screen as Choi Han Gyul in Coffee Prince.

Almost right away, in episode 1, we’re treated to an extended shirtless scene, with him wearing nothing but a towel:GY4

To be honest, this shirtless scene did nothing for me, though I did think it was played out nicely and very funny.

At the time, his physique wasn’t as, er, shall we say, eye-popping, as it is now, and I thought the shirtless scene was pretty matter-of-fact. Fun, but not quite drool-worthy.

I did love his turn as Choi Han Gyul, though. I loved his natural acting style and his excellent chemistry with Yoon Eun Hye.

I loved a lot of things about Coffee Prince – and watched it 5 times to prove it! – but what I loved most, hands down, was his smitten face.

He looked so. very. adorable. every time he looked giddy and smitten over Go Eun Chan.

Check out these screencaps of said smitten face:

GY6 GY7 GY8 GY9 GY10

So. Darn. Cute.

Every time he looked at her that way, or had that expression on his face simply from thinking about her, my heart would melt a little more, and I got the warm fuzzies.

I wanted a Choi Han Gyul of my very own, who would look the same way just from thinking about me. ♥

I went on to watch One Fine Day (2006) but I didn’t like the show. I liked the amount of screen time his bare arms and torso got though.

GY12

GY12a

His shirtless scenes and bare arms were very nice eye candy, but I didn’t care much for the show, and by the time it ended, I was ready to move on.

I liked him a lot, but it wasn’t love. Yet. 😉

ROUND 2:

GY11a

Much as I prefer my dramas to movies, I sometimes go on a movie whirl, and one day in 2011, I happened to watch S Diary (2004), starring Kim Sun Ah.

Gong Yoo wasn’t in a lead role per se, coz he basically played one of Kim Sun Ah’s ex-boyfriends, but I have to tell you, in the limited time that he did appear on my screen, boy did I sit up and take notice of him. Big time.

He was HOT. Smoking hot.

His shirtless scenes took my breath away.

I thought he had really good muscle definition and an excellent V-line. He wasn’t too chunky, nor too skinny. Just perfect. He didn’t look like a meathead in clothes; he just looked very good. And then, when the shirt came off, he was jaw-droppingly delicious.

Plus he was perfectly believable as both the cool, bad boy and the head-over-heels smitten boy. He was so natural on camera.

To get a feel for how hot he is in this movie, check out this Gong Yoo cut of S Diary. It’s spoilery, but he is sexy, adorable and very, very hot.

I loved that he moved without stiffness – did you catch that little snippet of him dancing? – and he showed some serious kissing chops. Mmm.

I was smitten, and immediately went on a Gong Yoo hunt.

I watched Spy Girl (2004), in which he was the lead, but although it was cute, it wasn’t enough to satisfy.

GY14

Then I watched Hello My Teacher (2005), in which he was adorable with Gong Hyo Jin, but not exactly hot.

Once that was over, I was out of Gong Yoo goodies.

So I did the unthinkable: I re-watched One Fine Day, and this time, I spent the whole time just ogling him:

GY13

The one thing it had going for it was lots and lots of Gong Yoo ogling time.

I gave it a whole re-watch, just to ogle him.

During the re-watch, I discovered that his acting was better than I remembered.

After the re-watch, though, my Gong Yoo love got derailed by a brand new fangirl crush on Jang Hyuk brought on by Chuno.

ROUND 3:

Fast forward to 2012, when Big happened. I found Gong Yoo Seriously. Hot.

Review: Big

Such a glorious feast for the eyes. He was even hotter than I remembered.

It wasn’t only post-army abs we were talking about. The man was chiseled from head to toe. So. Delicious.

Not only was he hot, he did fabulously in the acting department, and always came across as very natural and likable.

He was adorable as the teenager in a grown-up’s body. And when he was the teenager acting as a cool grown-up all dressed up in a suit, he was dashing and all kinds of hot.

GY15a GY15b

I was reminded all over again why I love Gong Yoo. I even had a couple of actual Gong Yoo dreams 😉

During my watch of Big, I did some trawling on the net for photos of Gong Yoo, and found some gorgeous gems.

This set of photos, which made heated rounds in the blogosphere, really caught my attention:

GY16

My knees. They buckled.

And then I found these which were related to the first set:

SAFETY WARNING:

Super hot photos ahead. May cause spontaneous combustion, ovary explosion or related affliction. View with care!

GY17GY19GY21GY22

Swooonn. Mind. Boggling. Deliciousness.

Ok, lest you take issue with the relative lack of photos of him clothed, let me say that I do appreciate him clothed too, thank you very much.

Here. One dashing, fully-clothed Gong Yoo for you:

GY24

Up to this point, I was fully in awe of Gong Yoo’s charisma onscreen, his fabulous acting chops, his handsome face and his very, very delicious physique.

But actually, I wasn’t yet in love.

THE CLINCHER:

As Big neared the end of its run, I was swept off my feet by the bonus track that Gong Yoo sang for the OST.

I was wowed by his heartfelt delivery, and amazed at his dedication. You can check out that track on my review of Big here.

Along with the OST track, I also read lots of BTS tidbits and watched BTS videos on YouTube, and that’s when I officially fell in love with Gong Yoo. ♥

The clincher: he’s got a great sense of humor behind the scenes.

GY25

I read a few tidbits on his jokes and comments while he was filming, and he comes across as genuinely funny and nice. He’s also playful, which I really enjoy. That doesn’t sound like much, but it really is.

He’s nice and considerate towards other actors and keeps things light, playful and jokey for everyone.

I loved this tidbit on a scene where Lee Min Jung had a lot of NGs trying to put a watch on his wrist. He teased Lee Min Jung, saying something like, “I’ll do it. Clearly you’ve never seen a watch this expensive before.”

And when he corrected Suzy in another scene, for saying a line before he completed the action of putting the pickle in his mouth, he later cushioned it by jokingly blaming himself for not eating it sooner.

I loved too, that when he was not doing a scene well, he’d berate himself out loud in exasperation, which cracked up everyone and diffused tension.

Aww.. All that just makes smile with a sigh of appreciation.

GY27

I found him so sweet and funny that I kept looking at more and more Big BTS footage and subbed interviews on Youtube.

And here’s the thing: the more BTS footage I see of him, the more likable and funny I find him.

I’ve found that for many other actors, my interest in them drops after I start to watch interviews & BTS footage of them, coz I start to find them boring.

So not the case with Gong Yoo. He’s witty, funny & likable in all the footage I’ve seen of him.

I really liked this interview that he did with Lee Min Jung & Suzy for Big, which you can watch subbed here:

 

He’s witty while being laid-back and natural, which I find really sexy.

GY26

Ever since that point, I’ve been whole-heartedly smitten.

Sweet, funny, playful Gong Yoo. He is my one big K-love. ♥

Spazz with me – Just as long as we’re clear that while we’re spazzing on this site, he’s all mine 😉

Edit: OMG I had the most awesome opportunity to attend GY’s 2013 fanmeet in Tokyo. Come join me on my adventure here!

Also! You can find more GY goodies here!

I’ve been meaning to tell you gals for some time but I keep forgetting. I happened to walk into a department store I never go to one day while desperately looking for something, and lo and behold, what do I find? FLOOR TO CEILING GONG YOO! The store carries Mindbridge, and they’ve plastered him ALL OVER the section on these huge billboards. I stopped in my tracks, and I may even have yelped a little out loud, and I immediately made a beeline. Brilliant advertising strategy, I must say ;). The store was Robinsons, which, kfangurl you have in S’pore right? Is Gong Yoo there as well?

And what triggered this comment was that I just saw the latest Mindbridge making of videos of their shoots, which I always love! Here:

A wall of Gong Yoo! Could it be the same Robinsons Malls we have here in the Philippines? Gah! Even if it were so, that won’t happen in the ever-so-hot Philippines, even in the rainy season. However, Mindbridge does have summer collection, right? Here’s hoping…:-)

Oh I dunno. Robinsons is a S’pore store that opened here a few years ago. I’m not sure about Philippines. We don’t get all the heavy winter stuff but for some reason that I will never understand, we still get international brands selling sweaters, coats, etc during their Fall/Winter collection, here in the tropical heat. Like, as if we have fall/winter! Yes, our shopping malls and office buildings are sometimes air-conditioned like the arctic, but still… I’m sure it’s like that for you in the Philippines too, right?

Sorry, went way off tangent here! 🙂

Ahhhh!!! He is so adorable in that Mindbridge vid!! 😀 And when he took off the jacket, I hafta admit my mind went straight to shirtless XD

And really? Floor to ceiling GY in Robinsons???!??? I am intrigued. I don’t often go to Robinsons, but this might be a reason to visit? ;D

Also, we have the same thing here, in terms of winter clothes in stores. The weather is as hot as can be, all year round, but we do get Fall/Winter collections in our stores too. I suppose it’s for the people who want to buy the coldwear to go overseas? 😛

Oh my gaaah! Cute! Really cute in fact. He still has that killer smile, but I must say, if he was cute then, he’s even cuter now, and a gabillion times hotter. He was likeable then, always was, but now he’s erm, lust-able too. It’s a unique combo! So glad uri Gong Yoo ages well 😀

…though i have to say my thought on GY’s smoking habit…sadly, as much as we don’t want to him to have that habit i don’t think he would quit that easily…..i read an old article that says that smoking is part of him and he does love it…i just could not find the link anymore….so let us hope he’d quit the sooner…. 😉

I’ve seen Mr. Gam on Crunchyroll way way back but I haven’t have any luck recently finding a copy on the net. He played a pitcher in the movie and he moved like a pro. He rocked! He had only one line in the film but he had ample screen time.

I’ve read that article too, Evez. And that’s why I’m a little pessimistic about him stopping the habit. I’m fine as long as children will not see him smoking.

Aw. You’re right, GY does seem to have the smoking & drinking quite ingrained in him – the slip-ups he makes when joking with people seem to be around smoking & beer, haha. I mean, it’s funny, even though at the back of my mind I just want him to take better care of his health.

I haven’t seen the movie Mr. Gam either.. those vintage GY shows are really, really hard to find. The fact that you managed to hunt down several eps of School 4 is already extremely impressive and a serious treasure find! 😉

You’re welcome, ladies! I only wish I could provide more accurate and detailed translations.. One day, when my Korean is way better, I will!

And yes, he is such a professional. It’s especially impressive considering how he doesn’t have a prior background in martial arts or action movies. Yet, he’s so gung-ho and brave, doing the stunts over and over until he’s satisfied with them. Respect.

Reply to  kaiaraia

Tee hee!! He looks adorable!! Although I hafta concede, he looks more like someone in a fusion sageuk in that pic than a straight-up sageuk. I wonder if it’s just the cheeky expression on his face that’s giving me that idea?

Also, I don’t think a plugin is necessary for you to embed pix. I’m workin’ on a post to show everyone how to (inspired by your plugin request!) ^^

PS: I tried to embed the pic above using the url you provided, but no dice. The embedding’s worked with all other links I’ve used, but admittedly those were using direct links from Facebook &/or photobucket.. Sorry, I think I mentioned flickr before as being embeddable, looks like I got that wrong! 😛 It should work with any other link that is a direct link to the photo. More details in the post to come! Soon!

Can I help? Maybe let’s take that over to the Embedding Pix post, and you can tell me what photo you’re trying to embed and we can try to figure out the problem there? 🙂

Also – yes, I think you’re right. If GY put on his intense face, I think he’d do just fine in a straight-up sageuk ^^

With the dedication and courage GY has shown here, I’m holding him up there with Jackie Chan. I hope he makes a movie with him.

Reply to  kaiaraia

Wow. Thanks for sharing the vid, kaiaraia, even though the embedding thing didn’t work. I tried it too, but got the same result. You’re probably right that it only embeds for FB..

I can’t translate everything (oh how I wish my Korean was better!), but here’s the gist of what I understood.. or rather, THOUGHT I understood..! 😛 Hur. So that’s my caveat.. One day when my Korean is better I may discover that I translated this with many inaccuracies..! >.<

GY says that he was nervous even as he wondered whether he could do the stunts personally.. the stunt for the jump into the Han River was difficult and required a lot of prior practice. [the video shows GY requesting to repeat the practice, even before he's landed on the ground from the previous round of practice]. I *think* GY talks about how even though getting hurt on the set was a problem, the thought of wanting to do better was always top of mind. [when the director calls "ok" he adds "perfect and more perfect" ie, couldn't be more perfect]

The stunt director explains that even though the stunt on the stairs is of high level difficulty even for professional stuntmen, GY did an awesome/impressive job.

I couldn't make out the next section of what GY says, but when he's on the ropes on the rocks, GY repeatedly asks not to be let down, coz he wants to try again. I think the guy after that says that it was moving how persistent GY was, despite several injuries that even drew blood.

I think at the end GY talks about repeating all the falling & jumping etc, once, twice, and thrice, many times, to build towards the end result (I'm really not too sure about this last bit).

So there you go! My very amateur attempt at a very rough translation of a very awesome vid! ^^v

Yes evez I find simply scrumptious in a tee, beanie and jeans…

I’m sure people who work with and around him must really enjoy having him around. I think I read in the Marie Claire article (or else where) something to the effect of the staff enjoying working with him because he brings a great energy and enthusiasm to the set but remains professional… well that always comes across whenever I watch a bts video.

Kfangirl I’m a shoulders and back girl so GY is like a slice of heaven. Everytime I pay attention to his back and shoulders I’m left being a bumbling fool.

@evez I’ve never tried that but I’ve held my cellphone close to my chest while checking to see that nobody can see what I’m doing, coz GY looks like he just needs a hug (or rather I’m the one honestly in need of a hug…lol)… I try to keep pictures of my favourite K-hotties, or any other hottie, on my phone and pc to a minimum because my phone and pc tend to be used like public amenities by my family and then I get 21 questions asking whose on my phone and I’m too shy to answer, so I visit tumblr a lot.

A date with GY would be a real treat… I’d probably be crying and having a sore tummy from laughing too hard. I love his type of humour …like in this video I laughed at everything said between all of them but I was short from rolling on the floor at the 4:18 mark

I do love his humor, and that star date clip is a big part of what made me fall for him. He’s so obviously natural & unscripted, yet so witty and funny and charming. Gah. Melt to the floor, seriously. And yes, I do love his laugh ❤

PS: I tried playing the star date clip but the the uploader has disabled embedding. I tried replacing your playlist link with the direct link to the clip but it still won’t work. We will just have to click on the link to watch it directly in YouTube. One of those rare cases where embedding has been disabled.

It doesn’t happen often, though, so the rest of our vids should be good ^^v

I think I have a general weakness for men in sharp suits.. I realize the sharp suit is also my favorite look on Woobie. 😛 Similar with the crisp white shirt. YUM. Yum yum yum.

Lol. You’re not the first one to get Woobie’s name confused with Won Bin’s! Can’t blame anyone either, since Won Bin’s such a big name in Hallyu & Woobie’s technically a rookie. But he’s steadily making a name for himself, and I’m loving the way everyone’s sitting up and taking notice of him <3

And yes, he does look amazing in a suit. And so does GY. Gorgeous, beautiful men, both. Scrumptious and utterly delicious.. Nom nom nom ;D

Yep yep evez was looking at kfangirl’s post about Woobie (teehee I can’t stop giggling) and he just looks so snazzy and smartly dressed and it’s hard to resist the charms of a well dressed man.

Giggle. I think you’re not the only one who finds my Woobie post amusing, muffin! XD I can’t help it, he brings it out in me! I become a melting, spazzing, swooning fangirl whenever he appears on my screen. And yes, isn’t Woobie the perfect pet name for him?? It’s got that soft, affectionate touch to it, which suits him perfectly. Coz badass as he can be, he’s got an affectionate core which I freaking love! ❤

And absolutely yes – he looks amazing in a sharp suit. *spazz*

GY… REFINEMENT at its best. The White Diamond. (Remember?) Hubby and I have agreed to grow old beautifully. Shouldn’t we all? I’m glad I have GY as my role model. :-0

Oh, I think this pix will make a great header. http://photos.hancinema.net/photos/fullsizephoto139791.jpg

That flag counter is cool! I don’t recognize quite a number of flags. Got to update my geography.

Reply to  kaiaraia

Oh yes! I do feel like I totally called it right the first time, in pronouncing GY a white diamond. Classic purity at its finest. ❤

Definitely, GY’s proving to be an excellent role model (well. Except that I’d love if he quit smoking. It ain’t good for his health. I concede it adds to the bad-boy quotient, and is probably essential for certain acting roles, but I bet with his charisma, he’d look badass even without the cigs. S’all I’m sayin’).. where was I? YES he’s a great role model, in so many ways. So many reasons to love him, really.

Thanks for the pic suggestion, kaiaraia! I do plan on making more GY headers soon, so I’ll see how I’m inspired. I am limited, of course, by my photo-editing skills, which are fairly young and not quite as advanced as I’d like. Sometimes I can make it work, and sometimes, I need more skills &/or inspiration and certain headers-in-progress get shelved for later. I hope to unveil some new GY headers in the not too distant future tho!

And yay that you’re loving the flag counter!! 😀 It does force one to brush up on the geography, doesn’t it?? Who says blogging & all its related activities don’t give rise to meaningful learning, eh? ;D

Oh yeah the smoking! I don’t like it as well. I’m allergic to it. From the looks of it, seems like he’s quite a smoker. A fan who went to his autograph signing while he was in the military attested to this fact. 🙁

Reply to  kaiaraia

Yeah.. I’ve since come to terms with the fact that smoking is such a common practice in Korea that it’s very rare to find a Korean man who doesn’t smoke :/ Plus, with actors, they often are called upon to smoke for roles or photo shoots, so it’d be really hard to find an actor who doesn’t smoke. Still, I do harbor that hope that he’ll decide to be a total rebel and quit smoking even though it’s a norm in k-ent and Korea in general. After all, he’s quite the rebel in so many other ways, why not in this way too, eh? Here’s hoping! ^^v

I’m hoping with you! Especially now that he is an ambassador of children’s rights and inevitably becomes a role model. I hope he learns from Michael J. Fox. I’ve learned the guy is a chain smoker but since most of his fans are kids, he requested media not to take and print photos of him smoking. Admirable.

kfangurl

Reply to  kaiaraia

Ooh.. That’s an excellent point, kaiaraia!! I hadn’t made that connection in my head! He’s now officially a special representative for children’s rights – YES he’s officially a role model for kids now! I do hope that he realizes it’s not a good example to the kids (although, if smoking is such a norm in Korea, would people consider smoking a bad example, I wonder?).. If he does realize it, then I hope he insists on authenticity and purity the way he does for so many other things, and go all the way to actually quit smoking instead of simply excluding smoking from his public image.

Lol. I think you’ve analyzed my blog traffic quite perfectly, evez!! XD You’re absolutely right! The most active posts on the blog all center around GY, with Woobie a close second. A very close second, I might add, who, on some days, beats GY at raking up views, all by himself! That’s no small feat, considering how Woobie has one single post, and there are now 3 posts on GY. That’s some serious Woobie love going around the dramaverse, and I LOVE that Woobie love is increasing among viewers.. He’s so awesome and definitely deserving of the admiration and love. And then, after the fangirling posts, come the reviews, which have an audience all their own. So, definitely, that flag counter is registering views from non-GY lovers too! ^^

Aw. GY’s proven very well, that he just isn’t the kind of man to be easily forgotten. Even though he’d retreated in my mind a little from being so inactive & I got super swoony over Woobie, all he had to do was reappear on the scene, & let loose some of that wicked charm, and I’m mesmerized and smitten all over again. I have feeling he’ll be MVP of this blog for a long time to come ^.~

He seems to have a clear idea of the kind of woman he’d like to marry, so I believe he will choose well..

On the other hand, how is a girl supposed to think straight with this kind of hawtness & cuteness walking next to her..? ;D

I found several episodes of Screen, GY’s 2003 drama with Kim Tae Hee, on YouTube. Subs are in Chinese, and only 5.5 eps are available, but I figure SOME vintage GY is better than none?

He only appears in E2 onwards, so here’s E2 in its entirety, and you can find the rest on YT here: http://www.youtube.com/user/kimtaeheeTV/videos

FYI, GY only appears starting from E2 part 2, at the 2:14 mark. Enjoy! 😀

Aw, thanks Lawanen!! Glad you enjoyed the read! Also, welcome to the blog!

Yes, I’ve seen Finding Mr. Destiny.. It IS a cute movie, and seeing cool dude GY being all derpy is part of the hilarity! I’m looking forward to The Suspect, while steeling myself to also check out Silenced.

For me, it was seeing him at the Tokyo fanmeet a few weeks ago that made me fall in love with him all over again.. He’s so charming & swoony & adorable in person, I am completely smitten, all over again! ❤

So off-handedly, naturally gorgeous. Swooonn~~~

Yes, doesn’t he look achingly, wonderfully delicious??? And without even trying to, either! He’s just doin’ his own thing, & the candid shot makes him look so yummy. Melt. Melt melt melt. ❤

Love these lines: “The body oil doesn’t help in cooling down the actor’s awe inducing, tanned body. Apart from simply being a good looking actor, Gong Yoo’s professionalism shined through the actor’s dedication in perfecting his character through intense preparations.”

Thanks evez.

Hahaha!! The opening of the article made me giggle: “Before reading this article, inhale and exhale, then stretch your vocal chords because the recently released stills of Gong Yoo in his new movie “The Suspect” will make you scream in utter awe.” XD

I LOVE how GY’s making such a splash with the promos, and everyone’s swooning to the floor in waves, and the movie’s not even out yet. The power of GY 😉

Since Yoo just took my breath away, I’m dedicating this song to Yoo. Its by Eva Cassidy, one of my favorites. And, oh, I heard this song in One Fine Day.

This song was in One Fine Day? Wow. That didn’t even register in my head. But then again, in my most recent watch of OFD, I was basically watching with ALL my attention trained on GY and his glorious, gorgeous arms. And abs. I didn’t have the bandwidth to notice anything else, really ;D

Giggle. I applaud you, kaiaraia.. for being able to notice such little details, when scruffy, bare-armed, sexy GY was on your screen. *bows*

Me too!! I think I squealed out loud when I saw those pix. And then proceeded to ogle, gaze and drool, just as kaiaraia instructed, heh. So much delicious shirtlessness!! Just the stills are doing this to me.. How will I cope when the movie comes out?? XD

Ahhh! South Africa… I have a friend in Cape Town… What do I know about it? Awesome place to travel, thanks to TLC channel. There are many Caucasian South Africans. They are good in English… and most importantly, the land where Charlize Theron came from!

Yes, GY’s just like fine wine, getting smoother and better with time. Gorgeous, elegant, refined… hmmm…. makes me think of Robert Redford.

🙂 Cape Town!! So I’m so envious your friend lives in such beautiful city. I’m from Johannesburg. Yep, yep, yep aaaaandd…yep ^^. If you don’t mind me asking where are you from kaiaraia?

Time has really been good to GY…I am really looking forward to the years to come because I’m sure he is going to carry his 40s, 50s and the years beyond so well.

@ChubbyDimpledMuffin: Really, Cape Town’s such a beauty? No wonder my friend is enjoying it well. I’m from Manila, Philippines just like Evez. I love this “a burning hot, on fire ahjussi”!

@evez: On “i agree with you GY is swooooon WORTHY…so worthy that it will make you burn with passion over him…hee!” and “Robert Redford is gorgeous but kaiaraia GY surpassed him,,hahahaha!!!.”. I could only concur with you. GY is way, way hotter. But it’s nice to imagine that in his senior years he’d be joining the league of such respectable, accomplished man as Robert Redford–actor, director, philanthropist or Clint Eastwood for that matter.

@kaiaraia yep that’s the one, whoops I forgot to put up the link, thank you for putting them up. I’m from South Africa.
You can see that he has worked so hard on this movie because these days he is extra skinny. I love this ahjussi of ours ^^!

@evez Ikr i was quite impressed and a little surprised that he’d do that much stunt work but then I thought, this is GY and when it comes to whatever project he does he goes big or he goes home haha. Girl I won’t bottle it up anymore and I am very glad I’ve a place to come and express myself with other expressive people.

@kaiaraia and kfangirl…maybe I could try showing a friend and see what happens from then. I think though I am starting to be alright with the fact that in my “real world” I may be the only person enjoying k-entertainment the way I do…and it makes it better that I can go to the fangirl verdict now.
