Chinese fans show support for You’re Beautiful

Chinese fans have come together to show their support for the You’re Beautiful cast and crew by supplying the 100-plus staffers with a buffet meal, candy, and coffee, which was delivered to the set of A.N.JELL’s fictional management company on November 15.

Korean fan-club members had supplied a buffet lunch earlier this month; this gesture was organized by Jang Geun-seok‘s official Chinese fan club (http://www.keunsukchina.com/). It was attended by Chinese students studying in Korea, as well as some fans who flew to Korea to participate specifically in the event. Jang hasn’t been active in promoting his career in China, but has amassed fans there with his television roles from Nonstop 4, Hwang Jini, and Hong Gil Dong.

The fan fervor for You’re Beautiful is pretty remarkable, particularly in proportion to its viewership ratings; even for a mania drama, the fans have been very outspoken about their support for the trendy romantic-comedy series. It has an especially strong online presence, regularly beating higher-ranked shows like IRIS or Queen Seon-deok in website pageviews and forum discussions.

Jang Geun-seok said, “As a Korean, I felt proud to see fans in China taking an interest in Korean culture, learning the Korean language in China, or even coming all the way here to study Korean. I’m deeply touched to see them come to cheer me on so passionately. Both my overseas and Korean fans are like valuable family members to me. On behalf of them, I’ll work harder to mature and always put forth my best effort.”

I always find it so fascinating that fans can become so involved with their idols in Korea. They're so dedicated, and it must be great for the cast to feel the love.

@1, I love his voice too. I can't put my finger on what it is about it that I like, but I guess it has a deep, echoing quality to it? :)

Wow some passionate fans there.....I like watching this but I don't think I would pay to fly to Korea just to attend a buffet dinner. haha.

(But as I say this there is approximately a hundred people who have camped out near my apartment FOR DAYS to watch the new Twilight movie. Why? I would never know.)

That is intense. I always thought I was a "fan girl" but I don't even compare. I am glad that the You're Beautiful cast is getting the appreciation they deserve though!

Wow. That's a pretty huge gesture. Hope that the drama team was buoyed by this show of love and encouragement.

On the other hand, is it wrong that I notice just how ridiculously handsome Jang Geun-seok looks? Or is that just me???

*repeats to self* he's younger than me... he's younger than me... he's younger than me... *sigh*

The more I see/hear about this boy, the more I fall deeper for him!!!!

Can't believe he's a year younger than me, too!!! HAHA, I swear he's so much more mature and funnier than most of my older guy friends (well, the ones still in the same decade at least)...

When I rewatch episodes, I'll closely observe his acting and yeah, just stare in awe at his beautiful face and emotion-filled eyes!

Wow! The crew and staff must also really appreciate working with JGS! Free food!!!
Do the fans get to eat with them too???
I too think it's great that fans are able to do these things in Korea and are being appreciated for doing them.

Well, what could we do? I know there was the Soompi project, but could we, YAB fans and JB fans also do something like that? Maybe not food, but flowers?

JB, you have so many regulars here, including myself, could we set up some kind of contribution plan/box to donate towards sending flowers?
I would love to read all about it!

Anyone in?

YAB and IRIS is like idol group and talented singer. While idol groups receive a lot of gifts from fans, it is the talented singer that is taken seriously.

Okay, at this point it just sounds redundant for me to add to all of the Jang Geun suk love out there, but....I LOVE HIS VOICE TOO. It's got this calm, velvety quality to it. I want to hand him a book and make him read aloud to me all day just so I could listen to his voice :)

Love his dark intense eyes and when he smiles and goofs around, just lights up my day. I wonder how the Chinese fans have so much money to buy branded goods for the cast, really thoughtful of them. Darn, wish I could afford that.

@ 15 sukispop

thank you! =D now, it would be even better if i could somehow find a translation for JGS's new song on the YB OST part 2.. called "goodbye." the title and melody and his voice all sound so sad. i bet we're going to be in for a lot of angst soon in the drama.

but god, i love his voice so much. and his face. and his acting. and... mm.. his collarbones :]

It's wonderful to hear this news.

I haven't seen such good drama in a while, where the script, casting and acting are all perfect. I hope the fans' gestures give the cast and crew of YB the confirmation that they are doing an excellent job and to continue working hard!

I hope future Kdramas will be as well made, same goes for other Asian dramas.

So the Chinese fans from China flew over to see the casts of YAB? That's amazing. They are really supportive. Is this the first time it happens in Korea? (where fans from all corners - so far, Korean and Chinese fans- show their support their generous gesture of food buffet and gifts?? So touching....

Sometimes I wonder if Korean celebrities, especially the You're Beautiful cast and crew, realize their popularity abroad (not just in Korea or Asia!)

Even though the quality of the drama isn't translating into ratings, it's good that it's showing up in different ways *does Minam's thumbs up"

Also, I came to see if there was any YB news because I was starting to miss it (a week is so long nowadays!) ^^ Thanks, Javabeans!

Aww, I'm glad the support project turned out well! The crew must love working with idols, this is like the third time they've gotten free stuff because of their actors. It must be really touching to know that there are loads of people who appreciate their hard work despite the ratings. :)

And just like everyone says, JGS is hot. I'm already anticipating his next project :D

Dunno if men are called this, but in the first pic JGS is chincha eeputa! Wah, kakkoii!

Thank you, JB, for posting this news, especially since after this foray into a YAB thread, I am going on YAB lockdown until Wednesday to avoid spoilers, and I have no idea how I am going to survive. Thanks for this tiny tasty morsel before my fast.

Really, it warms my heart to no end that fans are this expressive! With gestures like these from the Korean fans to the Chinese fans to the Soompi-Dramabeans fans, it's lovely that JGS is feeling the love. I also love how open Korean actors are to gestures from fans. I don't know any other entertainment culture that is so open to nurturing and accepting fan-love.

I am surprised that PSH and Hongki don't have such loyal fanbases! I would have thought that Hongki, at least, as an idol singer and uber cutie would have a screaming teen-tween following! But I guess not...? Or maybe teens don't have the money to splurge on buffets!

assa!!! i hope the production company realizes how much loyal, loving fans they have and would extend the series just one episode. coffee prince was extended one episode, and it was literally just enough. they can do the same with this one. i wouldn't mind an additional episode of just watching more PSH and JGS lovey-dovey-ness

Hi JB, by the way thanks for doing such a good job in recapping YAB. !!!!

Dramabeans is always the first thing that i open before i do any work in my computer...very good job indeed... you might want to do this for real ...!!

any way just wondering whether you can translate JGS new song GOODBYE...It seems to be a sad song..?? JGS is such a good singer!!! Luv him !!!

I am actually glad that YAB is only 16 episodes... I've been walking on cloud 9 since YAB first aired...not sleeping... thinking about JGS all the time..... hav to go back to my own self soon!!!!

#6 carrie - uhm, i don't think it's wrong to say that JGS is handsome/cute/hot to us older females.. if ashton and demi can find love beyond their age gaps.. i think it's safe to be a fan to JGS who is younger than us.

on a different note, i wish i was near Korea or in Korea for that matter to show my support for the drama. i heart everything about it!!!

English lyrics for "Goodbye" -
Credit to sunandmoon from Soompi:

"What should I do? All I can do is gaze at you
I can't even extend you a short greeting
My achingly cold hand, don't hold it
Now I have to let you go

What should I do? You grow further away
My chest fills with tears
Even though I try hard to hide it, I can't stop
What should I do with this love I can't end

Please don't forget that we loved each other
Even if you meet someone else who makes you laugh
The farewell is painful, but I'm glad that it was you that I loved
Gathering my sorrowful tears, goodbye

I've done nothing for you
Pitifully I've only left you with scars

You who embraced even my changed feelings
Now I have to let you go. What should I do?
Please don't forget that we loved each other
Even if you meet someone else who makes you laugh
The farewell is painful, but I'm glad that it was you that I loved
Even though the pain stops my breath and my tears fall

Please don't forget that we were happy
Even if you meet someone else who makes you laugh
The farewell is painful, but I'm glad that it was you that I loved
Now I have to let go of this love that was unable to connect

The only person who will make me smile is you
Even though as my love deepens I feel more pain

Please don't forget that we were happy
Even if you meet someone else who makes you laugh
The farewell is painful, but I'm glad that it was you that I loved
Gathering my sorrowful tears, the only thing I can do is say...

Goodbye"

**Since the lyrics are so similar to "What Should I do" (the song GMN's father wrote), I'm hoping that this is just a TK remake of the song. Maybe the Hong Sisters will surprise us and NOT have the couple split up at all - they can be lovey dovey, trying to solve problems together, finding matches for Shinwoo and Jeremy, and live happily ever after :)

You know what would really make my day? If both Shinwoo and Jeremy find girls who look like Minyeo (played by Park Shin Hye, of course), and all three will have their happy endings! LOL.

@9
I had the exact same thoughts..an year younger and all that... it really surprises me when i see some celebrities so much more mature than guys around me... (their arguement is "celebrities are all talk, who knows if they are actually like that"... my reply to them.. "at least they can talk like that... u guys can't even think of pretending to be mature, leave alone carrying off the whole act,,")...

@5 @33
i repeat the same mantra carrie did... but 'thank you' thanks a lot: ) ., urs seems much btr... :D...

wow..
it always fascinated me how fans from this circuit can get so involved into supporting theirs idols and celebrities... cos wer i come from... being a fan just means u like that persons work .. at the most u may go and buy a poster of ur fav celebrity... to go so out of your way to show ur support LIKE THIS is a slightly bizarre, but very admirable.. being a fan here is a total different thing i guess... more like worshiping.. we call it "bhakti" here... :)

in my place, wen celebrities thank their fans, its more out of courtesy (and i don't mean that they are not sincere)... but i think if u have SUCH dedicated fans,, i can 'get' how thankful most Korean (etc) celebrities feel... wow.. it must be grt having so many ppl look upto u and care for u so genuinely (brings to me the scene in YB wen the reporter guy tries to prod info from the ANJell fangirls, and their leader says "we protect our oppa's personal life" or something to that extent... )...:)

waiting desp for wednesday.. sigh...
thanks jb...
a good start to a monday morning

Yes. I am glad that people from all over the world show their supports to YAB teams. This is a great drama and it is sad that the rating is not as good as they expected. But look... did you see anything like this happen to IRIS's crew (I meant the meals and gifts etc...) ? This is amazing and I wish that JSG oppa feels our love & support. This is awesome and I am proud to be a Chinese who base in US.

Yay! Much love for our Geun Suk oppa! The whole cast and crew are working so hard so it warms my heart to know that they can witness some of the love that fans are feeling towards their production. I hope that they're buoyed by the fan support and understand that ratings aren't everything. You're Beautiful truly touched the hearts of countless people worldwide.

that would be so funny if everyone was dating a "mi nam"!!! it would be so weird and yet perfect for those characters!!!

i seriously wonder if they're going to cast someone else as her brother - i mean, he could have had such a drastic corrective surgery that he doesn't really look like her anymore. it would be a bummer if he never shows up though.

does anyone know where i can get a download of JGS' "Goodbye" song!?

@ 43 kpm1111

i wish there wouldn't be the obligatory part of the quintessential kdrama of the main couple separating and then coming back together. but i'll bet my cookies it's going to happen in this drama, even if there are only 3 episodes left. in my girl, also a hong sisters drama, most of the angst was saved for the last three episodes, which i had to keep a tissue box next to my computer for (oh, lee dong wook, you and your sexy lips keeeeel me)

and @38, thank you sosososo much for the translation. i was looking everyone online for it and couldn't find it. the lyrics fit tae-kyung and GMN so well.. especially
"All I can do is gaze at you
I can’t even extend you a short greeting"
which totally fits the extended "seeing" metaphor in the drama, and expresses how he can't bring himself to show affection. or something that i can't really express in words hehe.
and
"I’ve done nothing for you
Pitifully I’ve only left you with scars"
that shows that he's sorry for all the times he made her cry and didn't realize she was crying over HIM, not shinwoo..

arghh i'm prepared to not get any homework or studying done for the next two weeks because of this drama.. ;_; goodbye, straight-A's.
