Korea Travel Diary – Boys over Flowers Shinhwa Campus

Gongjunim having fun riding Geum Jandi’s bicycle ^^

On December 30 snowing cold morning, Gongjunim set off with her friend to Cheongnyangni train station. We boarded the 9:00am train towards Yongmun. Our destination is Boys over Flowers Shinhwa Campus which is located at English Village (Yangpyeong Camp). The train journey took 1 hour. When we arrived at the train station, we walked towards the direction of Yongmun Police Station to take a cab to our destination. In less than 10 minutes, we arrived at the gate of the vintage European style looking school.

As the campus was deserted at that time when we arrived, my friend and I just wondered ourselves in. The first stop when I came excited is the signboard which said it is the filming location for Boys over Flowers drama. As we explored further, I reached a shelter area and I found it really familiar. Then I realised this was the place where they filmed the scene of Goo Joon Pyo, So Yi Jung and Song Woobin who were wearing Shinhwa school uniform and walking down while unwrapping and eating lollipop. There were also individual banners of Boys over Flowers drama main cast – Goo Hye Sun, Lee Min Ho, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Bum and Kim Joon displayed at this shelter place. ^^

Goo Hye Sun – Geum Jandi ❤ ^^

Lee Min Ho – Goo Joon Pyo ❤ ^^

As we moved on, we saw many nice vintage buildings in the campus. Eventually, we arrived at a corner and we saw Geum Jandi‘s bicycle and a banner board with Boys over Flowers drama scenes. I rode on the bicycle and cycled excitedly. Keke. (The bicycle is locked to the ground. ^^) It was fun nevertheless! And soon, we stumbled upon a building and went in. To my shock, it was the place where they filmed many scenes of Boys over Flowers drama. One scene is where F4 came walking in with their schoolmates screaming. And many more… ^^

  The door area which is filmed inside the drama ^^

The interior design of this building is nice and high class (which I think is the reason it is being chosen as the classroom setting for the drama). As I walked up the stairs to the second level. I saw lockers on my right. And as the lockers were not locked, I opened one to take a look inside. Keke. Overall, I will say it is really an eye-opener to actually relive those drama scenes in real-life.

The school locker ^^

After exploring the interior of this building, we walked out to take a look at other buildings. And I saw a open space with steps. As I recalled, it was actually the filming place where Oh Min Ji accidentally splitted ice-cream on Goo Joon Pyo‘s shoe. As it was all covered with snow and being enclosed, I could not go in. But seeing is good enough. ^^

Gongjunim’s favourite photo of Shinhwa Campus ^^

When my friend and I were leaving the campus, we stopped by the main reception (where nobody is around). We found 2 TVs which were playing the scenes from Boys over Flowers drama. We watched for a while and lazed around. And soon, we left the campus. Out of my surprise, my friend gave me a Shinhwa passport book which she took from a box she found nearby the toilet. Keke. There are no pictures of the cast though. Just some of the famous lines which the main cast said inside the drama. ^^

Personally, I am a vintage lover so I fell in love with this beautiful campus instantly~ If you are a fan of Boys over Flowers drama, perhaps you should pay a visit here~ The only con is that it is quite inaccessible when you are leaving. As there are not much cabs coming in, you will need to walk out and it will take you around 20 – 30 minutes to reach the main road… I took it as an exercise though it was freezing. Haha. Overall, it was really a unforgettable experience ❤ ^^

Korea Buzz – Im Ji Gyu as The Male Lead for Goo Hye Sun’s First Directed Full-Length Movie

(Translated from 뉴스엔) Actor Im Ji Gyu has been selected as the male lead for Goo Hye Sun’s first directed full length movie “Magic”.

Im Ji Gyu has received attention for his movie works “Milky Way Liberation Front” and “Who’s That Knocking at My Door” at Jeonju International Film Festival and Pusan International Film Festival and he is also being awarded the rookie award at Buil Film Awards. He has been casted as the male lead for actress-turned-director Goo Hye Sun’s first full-length movie “Magic” and the filming has started.

Goo Hye Sun has received many public interest for her versatile talents from exhibition to publication and her first directed full-length movie “Magic” is about young musicians and their love and relationship. Im Ji Gyu undertook the role of “Myeong Jin” who is a unskilled cellist with negative introspective.

Through the help from his friend “Jeong Woo” (role played by Kim Jeong Wook), “Myeong Jin” becomes an aspiring cellist who received all attention. He eventually made completed “Ji Eun” (role played by Seo Hyun Jin)’s Magic which “Jeong Woo” could not complete.

Although Im Ji Gyu has been known as the star for independent films, he is still a unfamiliar actor to the general public. As Goo Hye Sun finds Im Ji Gyu’s appearance gave out a musician alike atmosphere, and she is impressed for his natural acting in the movie “”Milky Way Liberation Front”, as soon as she received the recommendation on him from her filming crew, she immediately designated him for the role.

Im Ji Gyu has been receiving private cello lessons since November last year for immersion in his role “Myeong Jin” as a cellist. As it is his first experience with cello instrument and also the first time he undertook the main lead in a commercial movie, he felt a lot of burden on it. However, he showed great satisfaction after watching the completed edited 10-minute version of the video.

And also, the filming has started from January 15 in Chang Young Elementary School which is located in Incheon. Although the filming started off in a distant atmosphere, the cue sound from the beautiful director gradually turned the atmosphere to a harmony one. And having stayed together for an entire week, they have also built up great teamworkship. The movie “Magic” has began its first set filming and it is expected to continue filming till mid February. The movie is set to release in the fall.

Goo Hye Sun and Lee Min Ho after 2009 KBS Drama Awards

Previously, Gongjunim has blogged on Goo Hye Sun and Lee Min Ho at 2009 KBS Drama Awards.

After getting these photos from a Korean netizen, Gongjunim has decided to write a blog entry on Goo Hye Sun and Lee Min Ho after 2009 KBS Drama Awards. And I striked complete happiness as I began to believe that my favourite 2009 drama Goo-Geum couple has turned into a real-life Min-Sun couple…?

Starting off from the photograph from top, you can see Hye Sun and Minho standing side by side. Initially I didn’t pay much attention on their gestures, but slowly my vision moved on to Minho’s left hand. I was wondering the other hand below Minho’s belongs to. Was he holding the trophy with his other hand? Or the other hand belongs to Hye Sun’s? I am not too sure… ^^ (My sentiments said that it belongs to Hye Sun as the hands are seen gripped together) Haha… ^^

Following with this photograph below, the M.C was congratulating Hye Sun and his hand was seen panting on her left arm. And Minho is looking exactly at the direction where his hand falls on. Is he being protective? I am not too sure too… ^^ (I guess so) Haha… ^^

And this final photo, Minho was seen borrowing mirror from Hye Sun before the live broadcast of the awards ceremony. He was having a final check on his looks before the show starts. ^^
