Oh.Em.Gee. Has it already been over a year since my last post? I am truly humbled by those who didn’t give up on us and continued to visit this site and await new updates. After having returned from a two week vacation in Europe, I feel newly rejuvenated and energized. Hopefully, this energy can also mean more frequent updates here as well!
I’ve pondered over what to write for my “comeback” post, and decided to share some interesting Korean celebrity sightings stories I’ve heard from my (very HOT) tour guide in Europe, a 30-something Korean man based in Rome. So that I may not add to or take away from what I’ve heard from my tour guide, this Celebrity Sightings edition will be told in his very own words, as I remember them. Also, if you haven’t done so already, make sure to check out past editions of Celebrity Sightings as well!
Tour guide: Many Korean celebrities frequent Europe for work or vacation, and just for fun, I’ll share with you stories of some of the celebrities I’ve met over the years. First, do you all know Girls’ Generation? I haven’t met all of them, but just one member – Yoona. I met her when she toured Europe with her parents and her sister a few years ago. Yes, she was pretty, but honestly, I didn’t see what was so special about her. But I hear that her popularity among the young people is no joke. Instead, the most beautiful actress I’ve ever met was…
GO HYUN JUNG
Tour guide: Go Hyun Jung. I’ve met her when she came to Europe for a CF shooting 2 or 3 years ago. I don’t know how else to describe it, but to say that she just glowed and there was this aura about her. She’s in her 40s now, but she looked no older than in her early 30s. But there was this charisma about her that made her seem difficult to approach. One interesting thing I remember hearing from a hyung who drove her around was that when he turned on the heat in the car, Go Hyun Jung quickly told him that she doesn’t turn on heat and asked him to turn it off. And so he had to drive her around in the cold. Apparently, that’s the secret to her great skin.
JUNG WOO SUNG
Tour guide: Next person I met was Jung Woo Sung, when he was shooting some work here. The first thing you notice is how tall he is, for he towers over everyone around him. Actually, that’s the only thing I remember about him.
JANG DONG GUN
Tour guide: And finally, Jang Dong Gun. You know how everyone who has ever seen or met him talk about how otherworldly good looking he is? Well, it really is true. You almost have to see him in person to believe it, but even as a guy, I was speechless for a minute just in awe of how he looked. If I was like this, I can only imagine how good looking he would look to the ladies. But you know, God is fair and doesn’t gift one person with everything. For when Jang Dong Gun speaks, he barely mumbles. Makes you realize how much effort he must have put to enunciate his words in dramas like A Gentleman’s Dignity.
