Yonsama and Ji-woo-hime together in Tokyo

Bae Yong-joon and Choi Ji-woo, appearing together in Japan for a Winter Sonata-related event? Will the Tokyo Dome be able to contain the excitement?

Choi’s management announced on June 23 that the pair would appear at a special event in Japan on September 29 in advance of the Japanese broadcast of the animated Winter Sonata. Both actors lent their voices to dub the project, reprising their characters Joon-sang and Yu-jin from the 2002 original.

The event will take place at Tokyo Dome, and also be broadcast live via satellite into theaters nationwide to an overall audience of about 50,000.

Choi Ji-woo explained of the animated project, “The plot is basically similar to the original drama, but it has its own unique flavor and a fairy-tale-like feel.” The animated series will broadcast in both Korea and Japan this fall.

Bae Yong-joon will be pulling double-duty; the very next day, at the same venue, he will hold an event celebrating the publication of his book, Korea’s Beauty (working title).

That didn't sound so creepy and dueling banjo-ish in my head as it now seems in print.

hoorrayyyy...Yonsama, JiWoo Hime, welocome to Japan. This couple has a long run. I can't think of any other couples who could create such enthusiasm among their followers. No couple is bigger than Yonsama-JW hime.

Wait a minute I thought the plot supposed to capture the 3 yrs when Joon Sang and Yu jin were separated.

BYJ is really looking too effeminated for my liking, but he is one of the best entrepreneurs in SKorea.

At first, I couldn't tell which one in the picture was BYJ and which one was CJW. Scary.

Will the Winter Sonata craze ever end? It's been how many years already?

Don't worry. This will be the swan song for WLS. Twins? You need eyedrop to clear your vision. BYJ has every right to keep or cut his hair. He is not asking you to pay for his hair cut. If you are scary that CJW will fall for him again just keep her away, even better out of his sight. She can't hide her wrinkles , considered too old for BYJ. ha ha..

#19 - You need some attitude adjustment. Where does this fanatic fan of BYJ but anti CJW come from? whether you like it or not, BYJ who has stakes in the production of WS anime agreed to collaborate with CJW again. So, please be respectful to CJW. If you can't do it for yourself , at least do it as a courtesy to BYJ!

#20 - Who need attitude adjustment the most are CJW fanatic fans worshiping her as their goddess and the people who are bashing BYJ at least his hair if they can't find any other fault in him. You might be one of them. BYJ agreed to collaborate with CJW on screen only, FULL STOP. YES! BYJ fans should swallow anything bitter filthy remarks throw from CJW fans and MUST keep quiet just to show courtesy to BYJ. That's how CJW fans have been immune in that mentality. At this point she badly need publicity to upgrade her wealth. The current way out is to collaborate with BYJ by riding WLS in Japan. The arrows are getting ready to take action on BYJ for the 29th September when they show up on stage. Want to blame BYJ again? Go ahead!

I am not a fan of Choi Ji Woo or Bae Yong Joon but there's something wrong with BYJ . He looks more feminine each day. I have a sneaky suspicion that either he's gay or he's transexual. I liked his old look better. Choi Ji Woo does look older but her look hasn't drastically changed since Winter Sonata, same hairstyle and hair color.

So now it's a battle between CJW vs BYJ fans??!!! The pot calling the kettle black!

Fans out there, fanatic or not...you know who you are!

Besides insinuating BYJ in his looks what else can you comment? Oh ya, he not being supportive of her ,who is her considered her chum when they show support of her, blah blah blah....what else is new?

You have insider's news? On what grounds are you making these accusations

What right do you have to ask for attitude check?

It's the precise reason why so many celebrities broke up!! Ppl who pass judgement without having concrete proof!!

I'm not a fan of both, but after reading some of the comments, have to say BYJ fan like yoon should be ashamed of yourself. I can clearly see BYJ winkles during 2002 winter sonata. He's already 30 at that time and the winkles around his eyes are obvious when he smile. Of the four actors and actress who play high school students. He's the obvious one that stands out the most.

Yes BYJ might be be the richest korean actor today. But then CJW is wealthy too, I remembered reading she donating money yearly and doing good deeds. It's really funny and silly to say she badly need need publicity to upgrade her wealth. Wake up kid, they are just collaborating for winter sonata animation. It's a special project related to the drama which have made them famous throughout Asia. They are thankful to the fans and are willing to collaborate for many fans after 7 long years.

BTW, I read through the whole thread carefully. I think BYJ fans are too sensitive and protective of their GOD BJW. There are some that said BYJ look more feminine with his look and you are can't take it and start bashing CJW?

I'm a fan winter sonata and have to say , I saw many recent photos of BYJ and he does look very old , definitely older than cjw who is 3 years younger than him.The photo which he is wearing a suit is being shown again and again. His skin is so dry in the photos and look haggard.

You really can't blame people for saying they look like sisters. And many are actually not fans of either celebrities

hey javabeans
I noticed that you seem to love mentioning my delightfulgirl choon hyang in lots of your drama critiques and I see that its one of your favourite dramas, and is mine but there are no recaps-

you probably have no time for recaps, but if you ever did, you could just write a critique for each episode? I would love to hear your take on the strengths and weaknesses of it or perhaps just an overall review?
