Eric v. Kang-woo, the twitter wars

Wherein Eric argues with self. Because why not, really? Eric is one of those stars known for being off-the-wall (he’s pretty infamous for being a 4-D Hallyu star), and it seems he’s outdone himself this time, creating a twitter account for his Myung-wol the Spy character Kang-woo, and then tweeting back and forth as Eric and Kang-woo. Yeah. He’s that loony.

The conversation goes a little like this:

Kang-woo: Eric-sshi, do you know who I am? I didn’t think you’d know… it’s me, Hallyu star Kang-woo.
Kang-woo: So Eric-sshi does know who I am. Ah, is a Hallyu star’s existence something the whole country knows?
Eric: Shut up, you ass. I don’t like you, starting with the way you look.
Kang-woo: The way I look… they say I look like you. What do you think? But don’t you honestly think I’m a little better?
Eric: Arrogant bastard… Sucker, go braid your hair!!! Are you at least eating, Hallyu star? Pfft.
Kang-woo: I don’t have time to eat because I’m so busy…
Eric: Don’t eat. Go shoot [your fake drama-in-drama] Assassin. Han Ye-seul, Fighting!
Kang-woo: Eat well too, Eric sunbae-nim. I’ll follow you. Especially because you look like me.

girlfriday: Hey, have you seen this Eric tweet? It’s fucking hilarious.

javabeans: OMG I’m reading it now. Why is he so… ??? It defies words. What a nut.

girlfriday: A complete loon. Hey, the fifth tweet down, how would you translate that slang?

javabeans: Er… well, the second part literally means to…braid…the…hair? The first part is like “sucker…”

girlfriday: Sucker braid your hair?!

javabeans: Hahaha. Sucka, go braid your hair! Why is Eric SO WEIRD?

girlfriday: I don’t know, but I LOVE IT.

javabeans: I love that he’s writing in character, replete with appropriate jondae. Kang-woo’s being polite to his sunbae and Eric’s all pissy to the poseur.

girlfriday: Yeah. Like Eric’s the actual top-star, and Kang-woo’s the wannabe top-star.

javabeans: Hee hee. I’m giggling at his gripe over Kang-woo’s looks. It’s like in the pre-broadcast Myung-wol interviews where he was like, “I’m a lot like Kang-woo. First off, I look like him.”

girlfriday: And his send-off, like “go shoot your little fake drama, asshole.” HA.

javabeans: To which Kang-woo dutifully replies, all respectful, “Ah yes, sunbae. I will do so, sunbae. I will follow you, sunbae.”

girlfriday: It’s like a meta-mirror funhouse. I like that he begrudgingly looks after his hoobae too, all “are you eating?” like a mom.

javabeans: But it’s taunting, ‘cause he adds, “…you Hallyu star” in a mocking way.

girlfriday: Like he’s patronizing the little wannabe. Hee.

javabeans: Well, the pipsqueak DID introduce himself as “It’s me, Hallyu star Kang-woo!”

girlfriday: I love how that’s become such a universal joke. “I’m a Hallyu star!” = overblown ego the size of Jupiter.

javabeans: Gah, now I want Eric to cameo on Myung-wol . Er. I mean, Eric to play Eric playing a cameo on Myung-wol.

girlfriday: OH MY GOD, my head would implode from the awesomeness. And the rift it would cause in the space-time continuum.

javabeans: This is how we know it is a good idea.

The latest news I read is that the Kang Woo account is not really Eric's. It is a parody account. The creator even tweeted Eric to tweet that the KW account is only a parody account to clear up Eric's name and the creator is even trying to reach news agency because some people (haters) are not liking that Eric created the KW account to make some noise for him and the drama. Nonetheless, truly Eric is a 4D! And the tweets in the KW account! Haha.

I'm a wee bit cheered up from the whole City Hunter recap- thank you Eric you absolute babe! Actually I'm a lot cheered up! He saved me from my melancholy. (A wee bit dramatic I know- but only those who enjoy drama would watch k-dramas!)

4D = 4-dimensional

This is just my interpretation, but...

3D or 3-dimension is the geometric world that we (humans) live in (i.e. the normal human eye can only normally see things in 3-dimensions or on 3-planes: width, length, height (depth))

But some stars are so weird, they see things and belong to a whole other dimension all together. And so we have 4-D celebs lol

Hope that helps

Since one above mentioned it, CHAJAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN~!!!

Myung-wol's "official" Twitter account: @Hanmyeongwol
(and, surprise, her last tweet was with @topstar_KW: http://twitter.com/Hanmyeongwol/status/96578654729015296)

I can read their tweet convos like no tomorrow...!!!

Also, In-ah's: @Jooinna

OMG, if those North Koreans are seeing this, they'll implode...

And BTW, so many twitter accounts have been cropping up (including Gumiho, Heartstrings, Sungkyunkwan, City Hunter, Miss Ripley, etc etc bla bla bla), and I think I'm hallucinating, they even made accounts for the Joseon Romeo & Juliet:
[email protected] (Princess Gyeonghye) -> she even claimed thru her bio: "...blablabla since.1500" O_O|||
[email protected]_you_ (Kim Seung-yoo)
[email protected]_ (Yi Se-ryeong)
...and all of them were talking in joendaemal, hahaha!!! XD

=============
NOTE: I looked up twitter.com/topstar_KW and found that the following conversation is incomplete. They had some other tweets in between, but Kangwoo tweets so much, it was tiring to try and find everything. Enjoy!

(read from top to bottom…)

KW (@topstar_KW): 내 포스터 봤어? 잘생겼지? => Have you seen my poster? I'm so good looking, right?
MW (@Hanmyeongwol): 거짓말….아닙니다..! => Lies... you're not!
KW: 거짓말.. => Lies..

KW: 빨리 너도 나 보고 싶다고 말해봐.. => Hurry and say that you miss me, too!
MW: …..(쿵쾅쿵쾅) -> ... (sound of heart beating, "koong-kwang koong-kwang")
KW: 응. 난 너 보고 싶어. => Mmm, I miss you.
MW: 아니라는데 왜자꾸그러십니까….!그러는 강우씨야말로…저보고싶어하시는거같습니다…! => Why do you keep being like this when I say I don't...! Just like you said... seems like you miss me...!
KW: 나 보고 싶지..? => You miss me, yeah? [Right, right?]
MW: 아..닙…니다…!! => N...o..ooo!!
KW: 맞네…! => So I was right...!
MW: 아닙니다…!그..그럴리가요… => No..! N..no way...

KW: 다 알아요.. 내가 => I know everything... [as in, it's ok, I know how you feel. Haha, KW is so tongue-in-cheek, he's winking thru this whole thing]
MW: 누가그럽니까…! => Who is like that..!
KW: 너도 나 보고 싶잖아..! => But I missssss you..!
MW: 알려드릴수없습니다…!국가기밀입니다 => I cannot tell you...! It's a state secret. [LOL, as an agent, her location probably should be!]
KW: 응.. 근데 너 어디냐고 => Mm.. Anyyyyway where are youuuu [whining]
MW: 됫습니까.. => Happy? [I assume she revealed her location]
KW: 바르면 되는거야.. 됐어 이제 => It'll be ok if you apply it.. ok, done [I think he's talking about medicine...?]
MW: 제 마음도 잇습니다…!그분께 죄송하잖습니까… => There's my heart, too...! (???) Aren't you sorry to that person... (In-ah?)

Now this is a kind of creativity that needs to happen more often! Very entertaining to see more out-of-the-box things like this.

If Eric was somehow able to cameo on his own show...I think I might enjoy this drama even more and also have my mind blown on how they'd pull it off successfully.

Like some had pointed out there're a whole slew of drama characters parody on Twitter (@Hanmyeongwol, @ChoiRhy, @Jooinna for Spy Myungwol). I doubt it's Eric making up this topstar_KW account though. The convos between the 2, however, are downright hilarious :D
