Kim Hyun-joong and Yoon Eun-hye for Basic House
by | October 27, 2010 | 169 Comments

“Hmm, what do I love more? My girlfriend? Or GUMBALLS! But that’s an easy question. I only have one girlfriend, but a meeellion gumballs. Clearly gumballs win. Let me count the ways…”


“Oh no, I’m running late for my date! OH LOOK, CAMERA!”


“Which one of us is the cardboard cutout?”


Her: “Uh, I’m not stealing anything. Certainly not candy from a baby.”

Him: “Shh! Jsst smile and keep walking.”


Him: “Woohoo! I bet I can fit all these gumballs into my mouth!”

Her: “I wish you loved me half as much as you love your gumballs.”

Him: “You’re just jealous because you don’t have any.”

Her: “I don’t have a fanny pack either. I THINK I WIN.”

    heh, these are cute

    i was ridiculously surprised because KHJ looked relaxed, happy and gorgeous for the first one. and then in the rest, well, he looked like the cardboard cutout again. but he’s defs improving gaiz, don’t stone me!

    • 1.1 Liz

      Sorry to say this, but exist photoshop to do it. Haahahaha or make up, his dark eyes wouldn`t disappear like magic… lol Plus seeing this photos I have to say Jung So Min is more prettier IMO and just her lips seems like YEH, Nothing more… YEH has a lot of cheeks JSM doesn`t…

      • 1.1.1 m a r a

        They’re equally pretty.
        I guess the comparisons can’t be help, but really, they’re different. Insulting one won’t elevate the looks of another.

        • patricedee

          Ditto mara!!! They have different personality and have their own beauty so why compare? Gosh.

          • rienz

            AGREE, nothing wrong with they resemblance. They both are beautiful, talented and adorable. Now Kim Hyun Joong ssi, whom will you choose? LOL

          • Liz

            No Riez, it wasn`t for you. LOL It was for Mara. Sorry if I replied wrong lol your comment is right. You was fair. But I just got angry with these people saying this acting all right. Like they never did something like this, plus twisting my words… it is upsetting, where did they take that? I never intended that. Just expressed my opinion lol.

            So one question for Mara andPatricedee, so if you like a group guy, or group girl, you don`t have someone in the group that you think is more pretty or talented, right? because like you said, why compare? πŸ˜€

        • Liz

          Excuse me, but did I say YEH was ugly? I don`t think so. I like YEH, I was just saying I think she (JSM) is more prettier, why? I can`t think someone is more prettier than other person? I can`t have my own taste? Really. And what i said wasn`t a lie YEH has a lot of cheeks, But did I say it was ugly? did I talked bad about her? Each one has their beauty and charm, is just that for me JSM is prettier, I don`t see nothing wrong with this or insulting. Everyone has their own taste please. You put words in my mouth. Don`t twist it like you want, please.

          And praticedee everyone in their life compare. Don`t act like a saint, please. T.T When you like one thing over other`because of something, you are comparing it, so did you never did it? Really never?

          • rienz

            @Liz: i think you’ve wrong reply, or it’s right that you wanna reply me? from the beginning i just wanna be fair of JSM and YEH. My opinion is not to judge who decided to like one of them. It’s up to you and another commentator to choose their point of view. Coz i see many negatif comment at JSM pics by comparing her with YEH. And also in this pics. I dont even thought you said that. You deserve to upset and angry if they both compare with me. LIMAO πŸ˜€

          • m a r a

            Liz, you’re right. You deserve to have your opinion, as I do. And it is my opinion that you are being insulting (by saying that Eun Hye has chubbier cheeks), whether you intended to or not. See, when you give an opinion, others will also give theirs.

            The way I see it, people don’t like it when Jung So Min is compared to Eun Hye, especially in a negative way, i.e. when she is called a poor man’s Eun Hye. And it goes without saying when Eun Hye is negatively compared to Jung So Min, Eun Hye’s fans won’t take kindly to insults.

            It’s also my opinion that it’s unavoidable to have these comparisons, but both actresses deserve to have their own identities. I don’t see much of a point of pitting them against each other, be it in looks or their abilities.

          • m a r a

            Liz, honestly, I don’t see the point of comparing one group from another or one actor’s beauty to another. I don’t think it advances my argument or point of view, when it would be sufficient enough to say that a person/group is pretty or talented. There would be enough words to describe and support that view without having to pit them against another person/group.

          • Liz

            Then I can`t do nothing, if you take my words and twist the way you want it, I can`t change your mind. And lol you can give your opinion, be free to do it. I just was complaining you twisted my words just that. You can give yours, I was just replying too. And Honestly I do like the both, YEH and JSM. So if it was insulting for you, all I can say that was not the case, but you already said I was even if I didn`t want to,so, what to do? Think like that…

          • m a r a

            Liz, I’m sorry if you took it that I twisted your words, but I did initially interpret your statement as an insult against Eun Hye. Last night, I defended So Min because of the unfair comparison to Eun Hye, who’s already far in her career, whereas So Min is a neophyte. And now, I just felt Eun Hye was being negatively compared to So Min.

            Looks are subjective, and people will always have an opinion of who’s prettier, but like I said, it’s just my thinking that comparisons do little to advance a viewpoint.

            I appreciate your clarification, and I’m sorry for the misunderstanding. If I became upset at your statement, then, I am only responsible for how I feel, just as you’ll only be responsible for your own reactions, be they negative or positive.

          • lola

            yeah, ur right…u have the right to say what u think of…however, when u compared those two together, it also mean u bash the other…

            anyway, when can this kind of comparison be ended? there is only 1 YEH and 1 JSM..there is nothing related to these two girls…like whoever u like…

          • Laeah

            Oh MAH Gawsh.

            Does this really deserve an argument?

      • 1.1.2 Niva

        Who is Jung so min anyway? I know only Eun hye cause she is quite popular and well known in many countries around Asia. Am I not up-to-date? Maybe I am not. I always interested only in talented and charming people. Eun hye has a lot of charisma as an actress. That’s why I have the eye only for her and have no idea who is Jung so min. Sorry!

        • bla

          coz you’re a noob πŸ™‚
          Jung so min is also a talented and a charming person.
          don’t get so butthurt about what the other persons said and try to bring down Jung so min.
          if you’re really interested, google is your best friend buddy.

          • Anonymous

            like this!

    • 1.2 aceyyy

      haha i think it’s got to do with how much eye contact he’s making with the camera =p

    • 1.3 blue horizon

      thanks jb for this post! ^^
      i wanted to share a few more pics from this shoot that i think are really adorbz,
      where KHJ looks really fun-loving and wicked
      (and not too overly photoshopped, basic house tends to over-photoshop the pics even in the previous collections)~

      he’s a good-looking boy (AND a nice boy as well), the pics can afford a much lighter hand!





      (credit to liezle.blogspot.com)

      btw, i admit i totally didn’t see the fanny pack until you mentioned it, i was completed distracted by his cute expressions haha ^_~

  2. yen_nguyen

    Both are famous being models but I think above pictures are not beautiful.

    • 2.1 Nanci

      Yeah, they seem so fake and the chemistry doesn’t seem to be there.

      In the last one, KHJ is looking super cute but YEH doesn’t have the right energy. Actually I think for most of these they are not on the same page, so it doesn’t work.

  3. dulcedeleche

    hahahahhahaa. I totally did not expect the commentary from you. I had to scroll back up to make sure it was you who wrote it and not girlfriday.

    I think you guys are starting to channel one another….:)

    • 3.1 Elaine

      Lol, ditto this. I thought girlfriday wrote the commentary XD

    • 3.2 chajjye

      ditto. πŸ˜€

  4. baNen

    Hahaha! I like the way how you interpret the photos JB. Awesome β™₯

  5. ninji

    KHJ looks better with a serious face. The smile just.. no.

    • 5.1 girlatsea

      Wahh? I always thought that his smile was the best thing about him.. Haha

      • 5.1.1 Anonymous

        me too!! his smile is so contagious and just wow for me… i love it ><

      • 5.1.2 ninji

        I just think it looks so completely pose-ish. It’s something with the stiff upper lip I think, it’s too thin. Haha, okay, now I’m just nitpicking. Still the serious look is way hotter.

    • 5.2 Laica

      Omo! Agree. I’ve always found his smile slightly creepy (I thought I was the only one).

      Don’t kill me, fangirls.

  6. Marti

    I enjoyed your commentary way too much. “Gumballs!”

  7. haprils

    so cute! the comments had me cracking up . . . . and wanting some gumballs now!! where’s a quarter when i need it?!

  8. juhwanie

    Well that was a hilarious way to start the day.
    Love YEH’s white boots! want!
    also why why why are KHJ’s pants tucked horribly into his brown socks in the first one?

  9. Casie J.

    Such a happy couple. But the commentary were just too funny. <3

  10. 10 MSA

    Am I the only one weirded out by YEH unnatural poses? I mean, okay, almost every female model has to put their bodies in these odd angles, but look at that third picture – look at her legs.


    • 10.1 kev

      YEH was ranked number 1 by fashion High Cut magazine for the model who has the best pose in Korean…then no doubt about her pose…
      by the way, she is modeling clothe, not her body or she is taking photo for magazine…if u still have problem with her pose, then im sorry…too bad then

      • 10.1.1 Gloy

        Can you do better? Show us!!

  11. 11 patricedee

    YEH’s so gorgeous!

    • 11.1 patricedee

      YEH is*

  12. 12 Won Bin

    YEH is so gorgeous and cute! that’s all I can say. Nothing more nothing less

  13. 13 maureen

    funny, well said!

  14. 14 Jenju

    Awww come on guys I think he’s improving with his gaze…

    The quotes were hilarious! Such a good thing to wake up in the morning to hehe

  15. 15 chichaloca

    i’m hopes one day khj and yeh will pair in one drama.plz2 mr producer fulfill my request πŸ™‚

  16. 16 annieee

    LMAO! this made my day! by far the most creative blog post i’ve seen for photoshoots!
    joking aside, both do look very adorbs.

  17. 17 miss_procrastination

    Haha. Seriously, they look like cardboard cut outs. It’s just wrong for two people to be that good looking in a single photo. It’s too much pretty all at once.

  18. 18 Jane

    I’m still stuck on the fanny pack, I don’t know how you guys can focus on anything else… Why God… why?

    • 18.1 m a r a

      Don’t hate on the fannypack. It comes in handy to geriatrics! πŸ™‚

    • 18.2 rayray

      hehehe my thoughts exactly! not even he can make fanny packs cool..utter fail!

    • 18.3 staples

      I actually didn’t notice it until javabeans commented on it. So I guess he doesn’t make fanny packs _cool_, but he can wear them…but only in photoshoots. If he wants a bag, he should go for a murse, lol.

  19. 19 Rina

    Thanks, JB! I really enjoyed the commentary πŸ™‚
    KHJ looks too happy about those gumballs.
    I really need a laugh this morning – it’s gearing up to be a long day!

  20. 20 Net-chan

    HAHAHAHAAA I LOVE the comments of each picture!!! Thanks jababeans for making me laugh ^^!!! The clothes are pretty ugly, but if beautiful people wear them, it’s kind of OK :P…

  21. 21 lb_tmi

    i LOVE the boots YEH wears in every shot.. i want all of them. sigh. alas, i have fat calfs and short legs, so i would not look 1/8 as good as YEH in those boots.

    KHJ is adorable in the first pic.. and i think the fanny pack gives him a sense of adorkableness.. i like!

  22. 22 rainerust

    HAHA I seriously had to do a double take so that I could be sure it was you JB, and not GF who wrote that. Snarky FTW! I love how y’all channel each other at times.

    Anyways, as much as I love YEH…meh. The gumball adverts do nothing for me.

  23. 23 TKadia

    The PINK BOOTS! I want them.

  24. 24 asianromance

    are they advertising gumballs or jackets??? hahaha

    it’s sort of weird to see KHJ to pose with YEH, who looks like JSM, who is his character’s wife. Makes me want to go “errr.. Seung-jo, that’s not your wife…”

    • 24.1 dannaluk

      lol…yeah like maybe he got confused between the two

    • 24.2 rienz

      LOL. Like ur comment!

  25. 25 Fasiris Fay

    hahahahaha, love the commentary! and the pics are cute…love YEH πŸ˜€

  26. 26 libra 80

    hhmm…love it!!!!i was kind of surprised ‘coz the comment of yours on each picures,,,so adorable & funny,,,,kekeke….i miss YEH…..hehehe…thanks for this blog!!!!

  27. 27 anbal11

    loved the comments JB πŸ˜‰

  28. 28 D

    that’s just hilarious.. i tot it was GF’s doing..

  29. 29 Marie

    these are cute pictures!!!^^

  30. 30 Amg1

    All I can say to all the “Haters”
    Yoon Eun-hye is the best thing to ever come out of Korea besides kimchi!!!!!!!!

    Go and spread your vile comments some other place!!!!!

    • 30.1 patricedee

      Ditto!! πŸ˜€

    • 30.2 Liz

      Haters? where, you mean here? I didn`t see any hater until now….

      What I really dislike is this. You can`t express your own opinion, because if you do then you will be a hater. interesting! I got it, I must be fake like everyone and agree with everyone, never, people, never say a thing you dislike or never say a personal opinion, or else these crazy fans attack you and call you hater, you have to say `pretty or awesome all the time, ever, here in K-drama land is like this… you don`t have own opinion, you MUST all think alike and AGREE with what the fans say. That is.

      Btw I really like YEH, but well I do not venerate her like you do.
      See what I like about her is that She is one of the actress that could do a boy role (just her and MGY could do it, pretend to be a boy). She was amazing in CP. In goong also, loved her, plus loove her personality, she is so fun and cheerful, I laughed so bad in X-man or is love letter? Don`t remember, but she was so cool didn`t acted like the others girls.. her couple in the game is the one I more like! xDD and she can change from silly to fatale girl, she is a good actress. So just because I think JSM more prettier than her I`m a hater? lol

      • 30.2.1 rienz

        Agree! i think that word (hater) can be misleading here. Too much if you say that. As the opinions above, they just wanna compare with their own EYES.

    • 30.3 kev

      love ur comment…and agree with that…:)
      hater is not here but somewhere else…she is just saying, doesnt mean who is in here…dont take it serious, guys

    • 30.4 CG

      JSM fans..please go somewhere else if you can’t say nice things. This is after all Basic House ads which involve HJ and YEH and not HJ & JSM. Why can’t you see HJ with someone else beside JSM. Geezzz! Get over PK.

  31. 31 p3rk3le

    In that “Shh! Jsst smile and keep walking.” his face is SO PHOTOSHOPED I hardly recognize him..

  32. 32 Aidan

    I’ve always thought that Yoon Eun Hye and Jung So-min had an uncanny resemblance to each other. Ever since I saw Jung in Bad Boy, I thought it was Yoon or her little sister or something. It’s funny Yoon and Kim ended up doing a shoot together.

  33. 33 jeankaycee

    they are too cute to be true!
    love both of them!!!

  34. 34 estelle

    LOL! Love the captions! πŸ˜€

  35. 35 doozy

    girlfriend < gumballs < JB's CAPTIONS


  36. 36 lovenyc52

    haha JB your captions are too funny πŸ™‚

    cute pics. i love when KHJ smiles πŸ˜€

    and i covet YEH’s boots….and her mile-long legs as well. sighs

  37. 37 jubilantia

    *can’t… stop… laughing….*

    Oh God I looooove your captions. These should totally be the ones in the magazine.

    The problem is, I don’t know the magazine titles, so for a second I was like “NEW DRAMA YES?”

  38. 38 dit

    LOL, fanny pack!!

  39. 39 Kender

    LOL. A++++ commentary. XD

    I love you so much right now, JB. XDDD

  40. 40 yohkoyamamoto

    I really wish they have a drama together. πŸ˜€

  41. 41 dannaluk

    lol…cute commentary….i think i have never seen Kim Hyun Joong this expressive before..lol….maybe he could get better with each project

  42. 42 misa

    haha! i LOLed at your captions JB..i thought it was girlfriday writing the article so i need scroll up again to see if it was really you.. πŸ™‚

  43. 43 mΓΌge

    maybe I can’t say the exact reason but I love YEH so much. I like so much whatever she does…
    so, I’m looking forward to see her new projects

  44. 44 neliq

    JB – I also had to go back and check the name of the commentator. I could have swear it was Girlfriday! LOL

    Me and a million more… I see I am not alone on that impression.

    • 44.1 v

      lol… me too… i went back and check who the writer was… i totally thought it was GF…

  45. 45 kay

    Seriously, I had to scroll up to double check it wasn’t girlfriday as well! Lol. Nice morning treat, thanks jb!!! Must find those pink rainboots now!

  46. 46 Amber

    U crack me up with the commentary.
    The pictures are adorable.
    I’m totally in-love with YEH!!!!!!!!!

  47. 47 soiia

    Funny comics javabeans XD !!

  48. 48 Han Mania

    After watching We Got Married and Playful Kiss, I have learned to appreciate KHJ.

    What a pretty, pretty boy!

  49. 49 Birdie

    The solo ones are a lot better. When they are together,somehow the chemistry seem fake and not natural.

    • 49.1 Sherry

      I agree. The chemistry seems gone with them together.

  50. 50 v

    lol… i love YEH, and I love KHJ but i can’t help but wish JSM was the girl instead of YEH.. oh well.. kk
