Japanese Fans Swarm At Bae Yong Joon's Classic Concert

Korean top celebrity Bae Yong Joon's first produced Classic Concert opened on the 13th in Japan's Saitama Super Arena.

At his concert, Bae Yong Joon himself could not attend on that day due to his drama "The Legend," but about 10,000 fans gathered to make this event a great success.

Bae Yong Joon's Classic Album, " BYJ Classics/Hero," had compilations which were the focus of this venue, and a Korean-Japanese conductor Kim Sung Hyang led the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra in performing these songs. Of course, the pieces conducted were said to be picked personally by Bae Yong Joon for the performance. There was a special behind-the-scenes footage for the fans introducing his album, which got much applause.

At the event site, Bae Yong Joon's popularity was confirmed again after thousands of "Bae Yong Joon 05-06 As Seen By Nikkan Sports," scheduled to be sold in all bookstores on the 15th, were sold in an instant.

Shy Guy!

Liezle got these from nagjun's blog and shared it at BYJ's thread in soompi.

Love, love, love it! He looks like he's having some fun with the people inside the studio. I just wish he has more time to laugh and have fun like what he did here.

Books About Bae Yong Joon's Works Appear Rapidly In Japan

Despite his absence at the official press conference for the drama "The Legend," Korean top celebrity Bae Yong Joon's popularity is ever the same. As if to validate this, the recent publishing of a book version of the drama "Did We Ever Love" (Japanese title "People Who Love") is receiving much attention lately.

Beginning this month of March, the "People Who Love" had appeared in bookstores and it includes a present from Bae Yong Joon. Goto Yuko, who is a big fan of Bae Yong Joon, is so passionately enthralled with Bae Yong Joon¡¯s character Kang Jae Ho, that she made this book in order to spread and share the attractiveness of the story.

There is a detailed introduction about Jae Ho's charisma, the lessons learned from "People Who Love," the world of "People Who Love," the character relationships in the drama, Jae Ho's feelings, and etc. Afterwards, there are also thoughts about Bae Yong Joon as Jae Ho, Jae Ho's fashion, etc, as well as the on location reports of Jae Ho's house, college, and the seafood market.

Ever since a few years ago, books about the works in which Bae Yong Joon appeared have been published one after the other. Starting with the publishing of Fall in Love with the Prince of Smiles from "Hotelier" and "Winter Sonata," by novelist and reporter Mukoyama Masako a number of books are still being published about Bae Yong Joon. This year, Yahata Kaoru¡¯s "Yon-sama's Path" has become the best-seller on the Japanese Amazon website.

The Japanese fan's love for Bae Yong Joon can be seen in the internet fan-fiction novels such as "Winter Sonata By The Fans: The After-story From A Cell phone," and the "Korean Drama Creative Theater." Last year in June, the climax of this phenomenon reached after Satovic's "Yon-sama Theater."

Until now, among the dramas with Bae Yong Joon, there have been the most books published about "Winter Sonata," then "Hotelier", and then "Did We Really Love."

Still Wanting Him Single

Starnews, a Korean Daily carried an article on a survey recently conducted in Korea on who among the korean male celebrities do they want to remain single for now. Our dear Yong Joon placed second after JDG.

It's a surprise to me only because I thought the younger actors like Jo In Sung or Hyun Bin who ranked 3rd and 4th respectively will top the polls. Since BYJ is now in his mid 30's I have no problem if he decides to tie the knot but it seems there are still a majority out there who are not ready to see him settled.

And with TWSSG almost ready to be screened, I'm sure more female hearts will be taken in by his magnetic presence.
