The Becoming: Bae Yong Joon

I've been away for quite some time now. Away as in not really writing, and away as in holidaying in South Korea, the land of Kimchi, Ginseng, plastic surgery, pretty plastic girls & feminine men. It was an interesting experience as I immersed myself in their pop culture.

One of the first few things which really shocked me out of my socks was this.

Well, not exactly this. Bae Yong Joon was still fine & dandy when he was in Winter Sonata. I mean with him looking like this, you can understand why women would throw their undies at him. Even when he sported long hair, & cried like a girl, he still looked fine. It was still acceptable.

But but but when he became the face of The Face Shop sometime earlier this year, somehow he didn't look right. It seems like he went through a metamorphosis or something. I don't know about you (being a true fan & all that), but it worries me.

He looks so girl-girl.

He's probably picking his teeth here.

So flower.

So goose bumps.

So far, I haven't heard any complaints from the women. It seems to be working well for them. But I think it's a bit confusing for the men right now, truck drivers, wrestlers & cowboys included (although it's not something new for the latter).

Hi faradeeba. Yes, I was in Seoul for about 5 days & Jeju for another 5. It was an excellent holiday. Definitely one of my top places to go to besides JApan & Paris.

MAS Flights to Korea now are cheap I heard. I'm posting my Korean trip on my other blog at

As for Mr Bae Yong Joon, Geli could just be the right word.
