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."

Hi Dear Marissa, thank you for sharing this news. Somehow I think I used to have conversation with Yuko, the lady who loves HWRL and Jaeho on KOB. I wonder if it is the same Yuko. I wish I know more about this book. Is there a way to get it? Is it in Japanese only?

Just received a message from Mariko, from what she remembers Yuko is a frequent visitor of bb's blog and featured camille in AERA during AS days. Apparently she is a jounalist.

Hope that helps.
