장희영_Jang Hee Young – 그대가 내 사랑입니다_You Are My Love

I still remember
the feelings from the day I first saw you
My eyes kept going to you,
us meeting felt like destiny

*Thank you for being by my side, for coming to me
I am being loved and I am happy
You are my love (Oh) only you are my love (Oh)
Someone I can lean on, someone to comfort my aching heart
That person is you in front of me*

A warm love that I never received it before, such great happiness
They fill up my days
You gifted me with a love I never felt before

*~*

I promise to give you love forever
Thank you so much my love (Woah Yeah~)

You are my love (Oh) only you are my love (Oh)
Someone I can lean on, someone to comfort my aching heart
That person is you in front of me

Diva and divo

Remember Mr. Lu, the guy who was PSH’s keeper during filming of “Scent” in Shanghai?  The following is an article he recommended on Weibo about a month ago.  We only have time to interpret it now.

The article is about the Korean stars who come to China to “reap gold” and their playing diva/divo and making outrageous demands.

Mr. Lu’s comments on Weibo said: “Compared to these, Sihoo hyung [ED: older brother] is so much better!”

吕薪然….厚哥比起来,好太多了!

20140926

We’ll just summarize the demands of some Korean stars:

1. Only allows filming by the media from a minimum distance of 5 m. – This is Lee Min Ho.

2. For LMH, the car must be a BMW 7-series or Mercedes S-class or Audi A8 and the engine must be at least 4L, with dark tinted windows.

Likewise for Kim Soo Hyun whose luxury car must be equipped with ice water, chewing gum, wet towel, straw, windows must have black film on both sides, and the car must be completely filled with gas. (Superstar trappings, not too excessive)

3. Security Entourage: Kim Soo Hyun came to China with a 15-person team.  In addition to his own team, he also asked the organizers to arrange for 20 personal bodyguards.  Lee Min Ho’s visit to China to attend events required a 18-man team.

4. Flights must be on Korean airlines; code-share flights will not do.  At airport must use VIP channel.

5. Must have an entire floor in hotel.  In the case of Kim Soo Hyun, he demanded 2 Executive suites and 12 standard rooms.  In fact they couldn’t use so many rooms, but they’re worried fans would have rooms on the same floor, so they wanted the whole floor to themselves.  The following items are required to be refilled daily: Coke (canned) 2, coffee (canned) 2, orange fruit (canned) 2, apple juice (bottled) 2, iced tea (canned) 2, potato chips 2, cookies 2, Qingdao beer (canned) 2, spicy ramen (bowl) 2, mineral water 2.  Kim Soo Hyun’s room required extra 3 bottles of Perrier water, chocolate, wet paper towels, chewing gum.  (To be fair, this is the normal requirements of A-list stars, so it is not unreasonable.)

6. Kim Soo Hyun’s team has specified needs for meals (American coffee with ice 5 cups, iced latte 3 cups, hot Americano 4 cups, carbonated lemon 2 cups).  Venues and stage lounge standards are the same.

7. Photography and video prohibited, including organizer. (standard Korean star practice)

8. Red carpet twice the ordinary width, so as to be further away from the fans. (This is Lee Min Ho)

9. Fans are strictly prohibited from entering press conference, and photos by mobile phone are not allowed.  (standard Korean star practice)

10. “No questions on love life, no cell phone photos, will answer only 3 questions and 1 greeting.” (This is Kim Yoo Bin).  In 2006, another Korean star Ahn Chil Hyun canceled the interview after his press conference because he didn’t like what one reporter asked (about poor ratings of a previous Chinese drama he was in.)

Article says most of these requirements may have been made by the management company and not the Korean star.  In any case, their demands are not excessive compared with those of some Hollywood stars or even Chinese stars.

Tips for fans of Korean stars:

They generally don’t stay on the red carpet to greet fans and will definitely give them the cold shoulder.  At press conference they will not answer any questions not already specified.  If you want to greet your oppa or unni on arrival or departure at airport, better comply with orders or their bodyguard or agent will really hit you.  There is no way you can sneak into their press conference under disguise because there is strict screening and you will definitely be turned away.  Lifting your cell phone or camera to take pictures could result in your being knocked down.  This is our advice to fans: loving a Korean star is easy, chasing him/her is not, so cherish.aaaaa

韩星来华捞金各类“奇葩”规定
横比欧美侧比国内 耍大牌 Or 专业性

2014-09-25 16:03:48

韩星来华捞金各类“奇葩”规定逐个数。从房间配置到随从人员再到采访问题,是“耍大牌”还是“专业性”?

时光网讯 韩星来华捞金各项“奇葩”规定已经不算新闻了,即便是“大长腿”李敏镐和“都教授”金秀贤也不能免俗。于昨日来华参加某品牌发布会的“都教授”就遭圈内人吐槽团队奇葩规定多。该圈内人微博说道:“恳求各位以后想请韩星来中国,在看钱份上之前,应该先衡量衡量自己的情感和心理承受能力,免得留下日后满血管毛病;还有,把韩剧戒了吧,真的,保你家宅平安。”下面就让我们一起来看看韩星们被列出的某些“奇葩”规定吧。

奇葩规定逐条看

1.媒体镜头必须五米之外拍摄。(出自李敏镐,不知道是怕闪光灯晃着欧巴还是怕太近有损花美男形象?)

2.乘坐汽车必须是宝马7系或奔驰S级或奥迪A8且排量4.0以上,车窗要贴深色车模。(同样出自李敏镐)而同样是一线韩星的金秀贤则在豪车之外要求车内配备冰水、口香糖、湿巾、水、吸管、车窗黑膜必须是两侧,车必须满油。(巨星派头,并不为过)

3.助理保安随行人员数量多:只邀请一位韩国明星,“一带七”起。比如金秀贤来华就带了15人团队,除了自己团队还要求主办方安排20名贴身保镖。李敏镐访华参加活动则是18人团队。(和欧美及国内横纵向比较,并不夸张)

4. 乘坐航班必须是韩国国籍,代码共享航班不坐,并且机场进出一定要VIP通道。(看韩国街上跑的都是现代,用的都是三星就知道“支持国货”理念深入每个韩国人心中。那航班,也必须得是大韩航空了。至于VIP通道……早前EXO因为不能走VIP通道打人的新闻你还记得吗?)

5.酒店包一层。以金秀贤为例,2个行政套房,12个标准间。其实住不了这么多,但担心有粉丝开房在同一层,所以要占一层。以下物品要求每天更新:可乐(灌装)2、咖啡(灌装)2、果粒橙(灌装)2、苹果汁(瓶装)2、冰红茶(灌装)2、薯片2、饼干2、青岛啤酒(灌装)2、辛拉面(碗装)2、矿泉水2。金秀贤房间额外准备3瓶巴黎水,巧克力、湿纸巾、口香糖。(平心而论,这是一线明星的正常要求,并不过分。)

6.金秀贤团队吃饭指定需要(咖啡陪你冰美式5杯、冰拿铁3杯、热美式4杯、柠檬碳酸2杯),活动场地和舞台休息区标准相同。(有金秀贤这么称职的代言人该咖啡品牌应该做梦都会笑醒才对。)

7.禁止包括主办方的摄影和摄像。(韩星惯例)

8.红毯宽度是普通两倍,离粉丝更远。(出自李敏镐)

9.媒体见面会现场严禁粉丝进入,现场也不允许任何形式的手机拍摄。(韩星惯例)

10.“不准问情感问题、不准手机拍照、只能回答3个问题和1句问候语”。(出自金宇彬)在久远的2006年,也曾经发生过因认为在场中国媒体的问题“不友好”,韩星安七炫方面临时取消了本应在其主演的新剧《男才女貌2》开机新闻发布会之后进行的群访及专访环节(据报道,当时记者们只是问了安七炫对此前他参演的内地剧收视率不佳有何看法)。

回顾以上十条被列出的“奇葩”规定可以看到,其中大多和艺人本身没太大关系,而是经纪公司对主办方提出的要求,韩星本人的敬业和礼貌是受到媒体认可的。而这种要求因为太过细致,在“粗放式”模式的国内看来会觉得不适应。

在明星随从团队的数量上,韩国明星动辄十几人的随从人员其实并不夸张。比如“阿汤哥”访华就被其数十人的随从人员保护得严严实实,其他好莱坞明星访华也多带着十几人的团队,职能涵盖助理、翻译、保镖、公关、化妆师、置装师乃至于御用摄影师等等。这么一列出来,十几人的名额所剩无几。

当然比起韩星没有十几人团队绝不出行,事无巨细听从经纪公司的安排,欧美明星具有更大的自由度,所以也会有轻车简装出现的欧美明星。比如早前爱玛·沃森在香港出席活动的团队就不足十人,再比如《金陵十三钗》剧组为了去机场迎接克里斯蒂安·贝尔特意派出两辆房车,剧组相信贝尔应该有数名陪同人员,结果到机场一看,就贝尔一个人背着行李。不久前“憨豆先生”孤身一人拖着行李来华也引起了不小的轰动。而安吉丽娜·朱莉会选择前往上海为《沉睡魔咒》做宣传,也是她本人的意思。

和韩国明星相比,国内明星惯用“耍大牌”招数之一就是迟到了。其他诸如矿泉水洗澡,求下飞机时铺红地毯迎接他,并且要在地毯绣上他的大名以及电梯坏了爬楼梯,每层都要坐着歇会儿等等都不在话下。但到真正出行反而不会像韩星这样前呼后拥万事都有经纪公司代劳,一般一个助理+2个保镖,算是顶有范儿了。

而欧美明星相比韩国和国内明星更亲民。只要和内地代理公司或公关公司沟通好活动细节并加以确认,其他的都“客随主便”。而面对热情的粉丝欧美明星也更加热情,签名、微笑、合影都是常有的,幸运的甚至可以得到一个拥抱。而对待媒体上也比较友善,比如小罗伯特·唐尼在媒体见面会上秀咏春、吃糖葫芦;“抖森”汤姆·希德勒斯顿会在北京的旅游胜地拍照发微博卖萌;“狼叔”休·杰克曼会在粉丝们面前大谈与妻子的“恩爱生活”并且特意问候中国粉丝;甚至一向高冷的阿汤哥都会对红毯两侧的摄像机、照相机停留数秒并露出招牌笑脸。(当然,阿汤哥访华期间在苏浙汇一次消费了十万块并且都是不怎么贵的菜这也算是一个谜团了。)

但这并不是说欧美明星就完全没有要求,比如Maggie Q就表示素颜时不让拍照、有些则要求准备素食,不许报道随行女友等等;而早前某以平衡舞著称的日本籍大师访华拍照规定不能使用她的照片棕榈枝拍照。

给韩星粉丝们的TIPS

红毯他们一般是不怎么停留的,面对粉丝肯定是冷脸相迎的,发布会上除了规定问题以外任何事情都是不会说的。“欧巴欧尼”们的粉丝如果想要“接机”、“送机”请千万遵守秩序,不然经纪人或者保镖是真的会打你的。想要伪装媒体混进发布会是不现实的,严格的筛选制度分分钟把你拒之门外。举起手机或相机拍照的时候请注意是可能会被击落在地的。时光网在此奉劝一句,粉韩星易,追韩星难,且追且珍惜。

COM review for KFF, Argentina

COM was one of 10 films featured in the First Korean Film Festival in Argentina held in Buenos Aires from Oct. 2-8, 2014, remember?  Please see our earlier post:

http://parksihoo4u.com/2014/10/09/com-in-kff-argentina/

This is a review of the KFF published on October 6 (in Spanish).  The paragraph in bold is about COM – very complimentary, we think.  The film critic says COM is everything a thriller should be, but it is more than that.  “The director very intelligently builds on that to give us mystery, action, and comedy in high doses that cause the almost 120 minutes to fly by.”

 

PELIS DE GÉNERO, Y ALGO MÁS

Nos encontramos en medio de el Festival de Cine Coreano en Buenos Aires y NIDO no se quedó afuera. Compramos el balde grande de pochoclo y les traemos todo lo que necesitan saber sobre este evento.

confessions-of-murder3

Muchos pueden pensar que un festival de cine coreano está pensado solamente para nerds, estudiantes de cine o… coreanos. Otros asocian el cine llamado “extranjero” (ahí sí nos nacionalizan a todos estadounidenses) a films lentos, de poco diálogo, reflexivos y digámoslo, sedantes.

Si bien podemos encontrar ejemplos de esto, como la favorita de las señoras de mediana edad: Primavera, verano, otoño, invierno y otra vez primavera en realidad, si hay algo que los directores de cine coreano saben hacer bien, es homenajear los géneros. El niño mimado de occidente, Park Chan-Wook ya nos deleitó con sus versiones de acción ultra violenta al estilo Tarantino en su Trilogía de la Venganza, una de vampiros en Thirst y la romántica I’m a Cyborg, But That’s Ok.

El BAFICI nos trajo Barking Dogs Never Bite de Joon-ho Bong, una peli absurda y querible sobre un tipo que, llevado a la locura por ladridos, comienza a asesinar a todos los perros de su edificio. Del mismo director tenemos el thriller Memories of Murder y la inolvidable The Host, una de monstruos “satisfacción garantizada”.

Pero cualquiera que haya visto estas películas sabe que nunca son sólo eso. Estos directores aman el género pero no tienen miedo de jugar con él para llegar a creaciones desopilantes que ironizan pero nunca desprecian.

Este es el caso de Confesiones de un asesino de Byeong-gil Jeong. La película completa no es más que un pastiche de miles de thrillers yanquis. No falta nada: el crimen 15 años atrás, el detective violento venido a menos, las pistas en VHS y las persecuciones de autos. Pero nunca es sólo eso. El director, con inteligencia, se permite construir sobre esa base para darnos misterio, acción y comedia en altas dosis que hacen que los casi 120 minutos se pasen volando, o andando a 180 por la autopista en un camión de agua.

Al festival todavía le quedan 3 días y para que no pierdan ni un minuto, NIDO les recomienda qué ir a ver.

Si les gustó Confesiones de un asesino, la van a estar pasando otra vez el lunes 6 a las 22.30.

Stalking

1009b

 

How do you define “stalking”?

This is how Dictionary.com defines the word: “pursue (a person, game, etc.) stealthily”.

And, we might add, aggressively, relentlessly, even shamelessly*, across different countries.

First of all, we must emphasize this is NOT sour grapes on our part.  We have been to Buyeo, even though we have not seen PSH there.  But we did not disclose any details about our visit because we felt it was an intrusion.  We had meant to just leave something there but unexpectedly got invited in.

Recently a number of fans have visited PSH’s Buyeo home.  We can understand fans treating this as a sort of pilgrimage.  We congratulate them if they have the good fortune to meet PSH’s family or even the man himself.  But we will respect them more if they keep the privilege and pleasure to themselves.

They may think posting their experiences on the internet is sharing with other fans.  We have been around the PSH world long enough to tell who genuinely wants to share and who is really flaunting.

If you really love PSH, you would want to protect his privacy, not trespass on private property and post “exclusive” photos of his house-under-construction — inside and outside, complete with virtual floor plan.

She took pictures with the “architect” (more like the “contractor”) who was indiscreet enough to give her a lot of details about the house (if she is to be believed.)  She claims to be in the “construction industry” herself.  Maybe that’s how she got him talking.  But since when has she started to speak Korean?

She keeps hinting she has inside info on PSH’s upcoming “happy event” which she cannot reveal which intrigues a lot of fans.  We think this is irresponsible and reprehensible.

We can tell you PSH is getting married (which he will, sooner or later).  Does this make us prophets if this happens a year or three years from now?

PSH is such a decent and discreet person, but there is such a lot of 是非 (gossip, telltale, intrigue, treachery) in the PSH world, especially the Chinese-speaking world.  Of course most fans, like PSH, are decent and discreet people, but it takes only one bad apple to spoil the barrel.

The Park family is very hospitable and friendly to PSH’s fans, perhaps too hospitable and friendly.  Some people will take advantage of their hospitality and good nature.

Don’t you remember that Judas K took advantage of PSH’s goodness and kindness on the night of February 14, 2013, asking to spend the night at PSH’s place (after drinking at the bar) because his car was under repair and he lived in the outskirts of Seoul?  PSH agreed to put him up for the night.  How that siren A ended up in PSH’s apartment was anyone’s guess (but not difficult to guess.)

We believe there should always be some distance between an actor and his fans.  A little mystique only adds to the longing.  Holding a birthday bash at Buyeo and inviting his (paying) fans there is a formal occasion on which everyone could have a good time.  Programmed, controlled, everything within limits.  Making your way to PSH’s Buyeo or Cheongdam-dong home uninvited, treating these private residences as Disneyland or Universal Studios is uncivil and uncouth.  Boasting about it afterwards is extremely bad form and insensitive, as well as posing a danger to PSH’s privacy and even safety.

Yes, you’re a stalker … and you know it.

[* We can explain this if asked.]
