The Bae Yong-joon book
I mentioned that Bae Yong-joon (Winter Sonata, Legend) was working on a photo guidebook when I last posted about him (about Yonsama kimchi), and now here’s a little more info about the project, titled tentatively (and I really hope it’s just the working title) I Love Korea.
Recently Bae wrote a New Year’s message on his homepage and explained that he is currently working on a book about Korean culture, to be published sometime early next year. He’s in the research and study phase, so it’s probably likely he hasn’t started writing it yet. He wrote: “This is a new experience for me so it’s not easy, but I’m studying well. You may wonder what kind of book this will be. I think the book, which introduces Korean culture, will be halfway between a travel book and a humanities book. I hope to unearth hidden stories and locations of Korean culture and make it enjoyable to all. I am learning a lot through new places, new people, and new experiences.”
In other Yonsama news, he has apparently joined hands with kpop Svengali JYP (Park Jin-young) for some kind of top-secret “World Project.” They’re supposedly working on an idea to produce “a TV drama starring the Wonder Girls to air on American television.” Gag. (Also: delusional much???)
