SS501 as your steward…

66718856

The SS501 boys met their fans for a fanmeeting in Jeju Island. But what made this special fanmeeting in Jeju more special? The Boys of SS501 acted as the steward in the flight to Jeju Island. The flight are full of anticipating fans from all over asia. From the group fans from Korea they are joined by fans from the neighboring country like Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and China.

This is a unique fanmeet that gives the fangirls what they really wanted as a fan…an interaction with their idols. This gave the fans chance to meet and face their idol at a close distance. This for sure gave the fans more hope of becoming close to their idols.

Their management company ineed made a milestone of thinking of a fanmeet that can nurture the love of the fans more. Hope other management company can do such activity too…but of course priviledge fans can enjoy this. How saddening…you spent a lot of money for supporting them and meeting or seeing them in person will make their cash register bling some more!

Enjoy your steward guys!

Shinhwa member who has emerged as an actor revealed that he is not able to get in touch with the other group members.

On the 28th, Andy attended the SBS press conference for the drama “Two Wives” in Seoul Mokdong. He was asked what the other members thought of him returning to acting after 4 years. He replied, “I can’t get in touch with members.”

Andy said, “I haven’t done anything wrong to the members. When we get together to have drinks, I readily pay. However, I can’t get in touch with them. When I call them, their phones are turned off.” He said smiling, “I would like to take this opportunity to say something to them. Please get in touch with me.”

In “Two Wives”, Andy will be taking on the role of Yoon Nam Joon and will be romantically involved with Jo Mi Mi (portrayed by Lee Yoo Jin). Returning to drama after 4 years made his heart tremble. He said, “Four years ago, I was in front of the camera knowing nothing. I have regrets during that time of not being able to do better (as an actor). Now, I am with many senior actors and am learning a lot. I am grateful and gather strength from them.”

Kim Bum plays So Yi-jung who’s accomplished in the art of pottery and ceramics in the drama. Hmm…that’s how far a mere drama role can get you. You get to rub shoulders and hold hands with Governors and other VIPs.
