They say that love is all about timing, and I’m so stoked that, just a couple of weeks after falling pretty dang hard for Junho (my Junho k-love post is here!), he has a fan meeting that includes an online option. Meaning, I COULD ATTEND, without having to fly to Korea! 😱 Eeee!!! 🤩😍🤩
What are the chances of that, yes?
So here I am, fresh off the fan meeting, and I have thoughts – and screenshots! – to share. ❤️
It’s Gong Yoo’s birthday today, everyone!! And man, do I have the perfect present for him!
But first, some context.
Today’s post is actually inspired by resident sweetheart on the blog Evez. Yesterday, over in our Gong Yoo Squee Fest group on Facebook, Evez came up with the idea that we could each prepare a little something to post in the group today, in honor of Gong Yoo’s birthday.
I thought it was a great idea and did a quick bit of photo-editing to prepare my little something to share with the group (I’ll tell you about that later).
And then, just an hour or so later, in another Facebook conversation, Evez happened to mention that she felt my posts have come a long way since I first started the blog, meaning, they’re now more robust than the shorter posts I used to do.
(Aw. ❤ Didn’t I say Evez is a sweetheart?)
Well, that comment really got me thinking.
To be honest, I’d always felt a bit bad coz my k-love post for Gong Yoo is shorter and skimpier than my more recent k-love posts. And it’s not even coz I love him less, or think he’s any less awesome.
I just posted about him first, simply coz he was my favorite. What injustice is this, right, that one of my favorites would end up with the skimpiest post? It just didn’t feel right. And it’s been niggling at me for quite a while now.
So then my brain put two and two together (or in this case, one and one, heh), and I hit on the idea of doing a proper, full-on post for Gong Yoo, in honor of his birthday. Wheee~!
Are you ready for your present, Gong Yoo-sshi? Coz I’m ready to make it allll up to ya.
I’ve since gotten myself back home, and it’s been an odd experience settling back in, after 5 weeks away. For one thing, it’s just so nice to be able to once again understand everything around me!
When shop staff & other service providers speak to me, I actually understand what they’re saying now. And! I no longer have to squint and ponder while reading product labels. Coz everything around me is no longer labeled in Japanese!! Ahhh.. It’s the little things, I tell ya 😉
Thanks for your patience, everyone.. By now, some of you might actually be wearing the same expression as Gong Yoo in the pic above, while waiting for me to announce the giveaway winner, hee.
