It has always been my dream to see Korea since I started watching Boys Over Flowers. Tried searching the rates of “Boys Over Flowers Filming Location Tours” and geeesh I just can’t afford it. Good thing there’s google. I then searched some of my BOF favorite scenes’ filming locations and saw “Gyeongju”. I visited Shillah Millenium Park where Ragung hotel in Gyeongju is located. Ragung Hotel is the setting for JIHOO SUNBAE’s traditional Hanok home. Ragung’s a high-class hotel & it consists of 16 separate rooms which are connected by corridors. Known to many, JI HOO SUNBAE is my fave in BOF. As in for a time , (ok…until now) I’m in love with his character. Usually, visitors who are not checked-in are not allowed to go inside the hotel…Fans just stay outside and take photos from there. But I’m sorry di ako papayag!!! So I used my usual mapilit attitude with charm and I pretended to be interested in booking. (I acted rich and normal for me to enter, I pretended not to be a FAN! As if I don’t know JI HOO SUNBAE but ah ah no,deep inside I wanted to shout the moment I saw the hotel. IT WAS LIKE WOW I CAN SEE THE FACADE but I just couldn't stay outside as I went all the way to Korea to see this!) Don’t ask me how much, let's pretend it was just natural when I heard that it’s P40,000/ night per person?. And guess what? The GM of the Ragung Hotel even invited me for a breakfast the morning after. I acted cool as if I was a fan.... GM made me tell my story how hard for them to control fans to me! Haha!
The construction of the hotel required the largest number of specialized carpenters since the restoration of Gyeongbokgung Palace. Ragung was actually the name for the royal palace during the Silla dynasty. Guestrooms include private gardens and hot spring baths”. I also enjoyed Shiillah Millenium Park, as it’s Korea’s very first HISTORICAL theme park, setting of Boys Over Flowers ( where Jan Di and Ji Hoo Sun Bae had a date! OHMYYYYYYYYYY!) and Queen Seandeok.
Im always happy whenever I see Hyun Joong articles in my country. Finally, he is making a buzz!!!!
Seoul (The Korea Herald/ANN) - Korean pop star Kim Hyun-joong won three gongs at the 2010 Yahoo Asia Buzz Awards held Friday (December 17) in Hong Kong.
Singer and actor Kim received Asia's Buzz Male Popular Artist award and two trophies for Top Buzz Korean Artist in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
The Yahoo Buzz Awards, established in 2004, is an annual event that gives awards to Asian pop stars based on the "buzz," or number of searches they received on the Internet portal site.
This year's awards were decided by Internet users from Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Indonesia between Nov. 8 and Dec. 1.
Kim has now won back-to back titles at the annual event. In 2009, the 24-year-old star won Asia's Best Male Star award after gaining wide popularity throughout Asia for his role in the hit television drama series, "Boys Over Flowers."
This year he gained more fame after joining Keyeast, the agency of "hallyu" star Bae Yong-joon, who himself is a major shareholder.
The SS501 boy band leader recently starred in the KBS drama "Naughty Kiss." The drama is set to air across Asia next year.
In November, he appeared at the opening ceremony of the Guangzhou Asian Games to sing the Games' official song. He also took part in a charity event with Bae at the Tokyo Dome last week, attracting more than 4,500 Japanese fans.
Kim is now working on his new album, which is due to be released next year, according to the agency.
Meanwhile, at the Yahoo Awards, actor Jang Geun-suk won titles in Asia's Buzz Star and Male Buzz Star categories, while actress Moon Geun-young won the Female Buzz Star title. But neither attended the ceremony.
Jang garnered 7.93 million votes to beat Kim, who received 4.59 million votes, for his titles. Moon received 45,240 votes, while pop group Girls Generation came second with 36,307 votes.
