know what? i've finally watched Race To Witch Mountain today.

reached there and they were having their lunch at Black Canyon and saw THE BIMBO. lol. then half an hour later they ate AGAIN at MCD. of coz i didnt. -.-" Bimbo and I went and watch the dancing competition thing. and gawshhh. those people were amazing with the break dancing and all. and there's a group with make ups like goth freakos. swt. and we just walked around until 4. the whole JJ was like another school. we see our school students EVERYWHERE. like, seriously. =( lol. and we went in the cinema late because of something i'd rather not say. hahah. and Dwyane Johnson damn hawt. =) his biceps. ohmykimbum. so freakin huge and HOT. he's hilarious as well. haha. and btw, we were late to tuition because of this movie. hahah. we were like, WHEN THE HELL ARE THEY GONNA REACH THE MOUNTAIN? WHY THEY STILL CANT FIND THE DAMNED UFO? lawl.

and the tuition Christiano Ronaldo is hot. hah.

and look what i found?

Kim Bum says, "Me, a playboy? But I have never been in love!" The 20 year-old who portrays playboy extraordinaire on Boys Before Flowers talks to ISPLUS.

This interview felt so much tougher to translate than Lee Min-ho's. I think Kim Bum uses more flowery language and Min-ho's more straight forward. Sigh, Kim Bum's motto in life escapes me. If someone can translate that and any that I have (not purposefully) left out, I would be much obliged.

IS: The So Yi-jung of Boys Before Flowers seems to be a smooth playboy - a ladies' man.

KB: Thank you for the compliment but in real life, I am quite different. I am shy and do not mingle easily with people, much less attract beautiful women.

IS: Do you have a girlfriend?

KB: I've never had a girlfriend. I have been always too involved in something or other and have not found a girlfriend.

IS: If you had a girlfriend, what would you like her to do for you?

KB: I would like her to cook for me and pack me a nice lunch box. During my busy shooting schedule, I often have to skip a meal. When that happens, I could eat the lunch box my girlfriend has lovingly prepared for me. (Sounds like the way to Kim Bum's heart is through his stomach :-) Hear that girls?)

IS: Who is #1 on your mobile phone speed dial?

KB: I believe it's a "hyung" (elder brother/senior) from my agency whom I call for support. When I have a girlfriend, I would probably change her number to be #1 on my speed dial then.

IS: What would you do if your parents oppose marriage to your chosen one -- much like Boys Before Flowers' Gu Jun-pyo's situation?

KB: If I do not get married to the one I love because of the opposition of those around me, I will regret it for the rest of my life. I will persuade my parent's for their blessing.

IS: What is your motto in life?

KB: Making a mistake once is alright, but don't make it twice. As you live life, you may experience failures and you may make mistakes. However, I do not want to encounter the same defeat from making the same mistake again. It means that although a person can't be perfect, he/she should try his/her best to come close to perfection.

IS: What is your biggest crisis in life to date?

KB: I don't think I have experienced any extra ordinary crisis in my life. I have worked hard to overcome certain things, but I do not consider them crisis in my life.

IS: Do you want to be a tycoon like your character in Boys Before Flowers?

KB: I do not want to be a tycoon, although I am always keen to achieve, and to live out my dream.

IS: Favourite Internet sites?

KB: Daum, Naver and other portal sites because news and information can be obtained very quickly.

IS: What do you always carry in your bag?

KB: Mobile phone and wallet.

IS: Do you have a jinx or habit?

KB: The day before the first day of shooting the drama I could not sleep. However, when morning comes, I go to the set in good spirits and get the job done. The next night, if I don't get to sleep again, my condition worsens.

IS: When you feel stressed how do you solve it?

KB: When I am stressed, I look for my friends. I get de-stressed when I hang out with them, laughing and talking.

IS: Who is your favourite sports star?

KB: Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo.

IS: What three things would you bring to a desert island?

KB: Game consoles, DVD player and cell phone. I could watch movies with the DVD player and enjoy the island in between playing games on my console. Why would I bring a cell phone to a deserted island? I saw a CF once where the mobile phone was used to call for a Jjajangmyeon delivery.
(Kim Bum's answer sounds 바보 to me. Game console and DVD player with no TV?)

IS: If you have a completely free day, what would you do?

KB: I would like to go somewhere to clear my head and unwind.

Oh wow, i can't believe my luck by stumbling upon this interview with Boys Before Flowers star Lee Min-ho on ISPLUS. In my opinion, some of the questions are really personal and you wouldn't get questions like these in a Hollywood interview -- about girlfriends and first kisses etc.

However, Lee Min-ho answers them all in stride. I am trying to be as accurate as possible, and do justice to Lee Min-ho, but all I have to work with are two translation tools (and one pretty much sucks) and my limited Korean.

Anyway, enjoy...

IS: The Baeksang Arts Awards fall (referring to Min-ho tripping on the Red Carpet) was a hot topic.

LMH: Yeah what a silly mistake and I was embarrassed. But my fans did cheer me on and I could see the love of the fans.

IS: What is your motto in life?

LMH: Not to give up on my goals. Victory is not as important as possessing a fighting spirit. My motto is to not give up even if I fail. I think to have that attitude is just beautiful.

IS: What was the biggest crisis in your life to date?

LMH: There was this traffic accident in 2006. I had to stay in the hospital for 6 months. At first I was frustrated and I couldn't even walk. But I am glad I overcame that.

IS: How do you relieve stress?

LMH: Just sleep. Sleep until the stress disappears. I have slept for 24 hours previously. (Ha ha ha...Orchid likes this! I could sleep all day too!)

IS: When and where was your first kiss?

LMH: It was when I was a freshman in high school. I kissed my girlfriend, standing right in front of her house.

IS: What do you think most women want as a gift?

LMH: If I had a girlfriend, that would be good. Women want you to be their best friend. That's the best gift of all.

IS: When was the last time you dated and had a girlfriend?

LMH: When I was 20. I haven't had a girlfriend since University.

IS: If you had a lover, which term of endearment would you use to call her?

LMH: It depends on the style of the woman (literal translation. But i guess he means the term of endearment he will use depends on what kind of woman she is. There is no fixed term for all.)

IS: What if your parents were against your marriage -- like in the character Gu Jun-pyo?

LMH: We will run away and elope.

IS: Which actress would you like to work with in future?

LMH: Song Hye-kyo sunbae. She is elegant and classy and has loads of charisma and possesses excellent acting skills. Should I get a chance to work with her, I would be able to learn a lot and no doubt be very nervous. (Ahem...sounds like he has a crush on Song Hye-kyo.)

IS: Person whom you most want to meet?

LMH: I want to meet Hollywood actor Edward Norton. He has a laid back, comfortable charisma that is so impressive. When I meet him, I will ask "Will you teach me how?" But I must brush up on my English first.

IS: Who is your favourite sports star?

LMH: Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo. It was my dream in elementary school to become a professional soccer player. If I continued to play football, I hope to be a player like Cristiano Ronaldo now.

IS: What's your favourite food and what dish do you cook well?

LMH: I like meat. Recipe? Just roast it. I have a secret roasting process. Beef, pork or chicken, I use the same recipe.

IS: What is your #18 karaoke song? (The song you sing all the time at karaokes)

LMH: Toy's 내가 잠시 너의 곁에 살았다는 걸

IS: What do you always carry in your bag?

LMH: Cologne / Perfume. I always like to smell nice.

IS: What is your favourite drink?

LMH: I usually don't drink alcohol. Three cups of soju is my limit. I like hard liquor.

IS: Do you have a jinx or habit?

LMH: Whenever I'm in a drama or movie, I injure myself. I have to be extra careful.

IS: What three things would you bring to a desert island?

LMH: A bed, lighter and my mobile phone. Having a nice bed to sleep on would be good (yes! i agree with this!!). On a deserted island, your food should be cooked - hence the lighter. I could cook fish. I would be so bored on a deserted island that I would play with all the games I downloaded to my mobile phone.

IS: What do you envy of your F4 members?

LMH: Kim Bum's small face, Kim Joon's big eyes, Kim Hyun-joong's fair complexion. As for the whole package, I am actually the best. (ha ha ha)

god. so funny lahhh.

*points up* so hot right RIGHT? KHER SHIN SAY "YES!" but do not like him. =]
