We are close to the ending of 2010. Wish it could come faster. I had enough of 2010.
And few more pics to admire during my absence:

When you return I will go into more detail about my inadequacy with entering a comment in your blog.
It must be me. There is something I am not doing. You will have to be the one to tell me where my denseness lies :scratch:

:-) You are the least obsessive person I know most of the time. I don't need to comment on everything, just now and then I feel the urge to howl at the moon. It's really all Kim Nam Gil. So I guess you do feel it because he powers it all.....:-)
So OK.

Peggy, thanks for the pm, that was a pleasant surprise^^

And just to add. Korean fans, have no idea why, started to believe Namgil-nim will play in a live version of Cowboy Bebop. Actually, I haven't been for some time on his Daum or DC to figure it out so I can't say if this is just a joke fans amuse themselves with during his absence, or... But I bet it's a joke. You know, minds of KNG-deprived fans don't work properly. Hehe, I know what they are going through...

Hehe even though it probably is a joke, I'd still love to see that . . . Can easily picture him take that role ;)

Ah, my weird imagination again!!

Since you posted those pics, he's constantly on my mind again, too :whistling:

Even when he is not there he is present. No-one who knows him or knows about him is ever without his presence. Strange powers this man has.

I am a sucker for lyrics and the sharper they are the more I like them. Sondhieim is a master. Cole Porter was pretty good as well.

the sounds of words well put together can be very addictive.

I want to thank Kim Namgil-nim for creating the opportunity for me to write something and I hope it will be further developped. Nothing on dramas, but it was because of him I took that topic.

The drama
When It's Spring' has just finished on TV here. I watched almost all of it again. It really was a good drama The people were so real and you wanted things to work out for them. Nice lead and of course Nam Gil was so worth watching ,and aching for, when he found out what was really going on. Glad the guys made friends again.
Only frown is the girl. I just don't like her at all. Did not like her in 'Triple either' Don;t know why. Anyway the two guys were enough satisfaction for me.

Little^^ aww... :wub:
But the leading lady in When Spring Comes was in the Fox Family, and was quite good. Not that I looked at anyone but crazy son of the main "fox" anyway, hehe...
But Park Gun Hyun is great, I always liked him. He's a great musical actor and has tons of charisma. Plus the way he dances...
Not to mention Kim Gab Su as the "less smart than others" father in it^^

Ah, Namgil-nim, just 527 days left. Come back or I start losing my senses (but I think it's too late...)!!

I think we are talking about different actresses?? I mean the actress who was the singer Cherry. She was the skating coach in Triple. (Lee Ha Na )
Don't remember her in Fox Family. Well I was bent on Mr. Ha....

Kim Gab Soo can dance... and watched him tonight in some new comedy thing and he was dolled up in black satin and lace with a frizzy wig and he looked almost gorgeous. Very funny and danced like someone in KARA. 'Clown' from 2AM also dolled up in the group.Name Jo Kwon. Lovely tenor voice in the group.
This family drama is 'With all my Love' I think and has 100 episodes....I think will be too long for this tale of rich and poor families.

Yes, I wasn't talk about her either.

Jo Kwon is naturally funny, I saw him at some awards and he can come up with a joke like that. Oh, and you saw Kim Gabsu in this outfit? That was... I almost fell from chair. They even had him interviewed about this^^ I do watch All My Love - almost every 3, 4th episode. :whistling:

Also saw some of MBC 2010 Drama awards last night. That gorgeous man PSH was there presenting and receiving. He was wearing very heavy dark rimmed glasses which I did not really like....but he is nice to look at. So many others and some of the awards were a little like a pat on the head for attendance. Lee Tae Gon!! he was there...so fine.

He and his glasses fixation... damn... and this furry coat he was wearing, I really wanted to rip it... I mean... nevermind...

I read somewhere KNG was doing an interview, but I guess it was just wishful thinking of some fan(girl)s. Anyway, I keep my eye open. (the other one is someplace else).

Lee Tae Gon was really, really nice in Assorted Gems. Nice...

I'd like to express my grattitude to this wonderful man, whose charity work was my inspiration for participating in the conference and writing an article that will be published.
Not bragging, but I'm really, really grateful to Kim Namgil-nim.


And I'm grateful to wonderful arakira, who kept a whip over me so I could finish it on time.

:cheers:

Good, good... He said he wanted to communicate with foreign fans. I was wondering if he actually meant "foreign" as "oh hell, they are not Asians! And they have PCs!! And they watch dramas!"
Anyway, a good, good boy!

Hi all! Been awhile since I was here...
Just want to share translation of KNG's Into the Wild book since I found the Chinese translation :D But please pardon my bad English, and do let me know if you find any errors. I've only translated the foreword, content and prologue at the moment:



For my beloved fans

I took a break for about two months after filming Queen Seon Deok. Usually I would just stay at home to sleep, not stepping out of my house at all. But I’m unable to do so this time round. I will have to temporarily leave all of you after filming my new drama. Even with my optimistic personality, I still feel vexed when I think of having to be away from you all for some time. During the past two months when I’m away from home and went to travel, I produced a thin book. My current appearance as well as the diary I’ve written for a long time will be included in it. Viewing it once in a while so as to not forget each other, my life’s record.

Sincerely yours,
actor Kim Nam Gil

Prologue

#1
Going unnoticed, water vapor filled the window rear.
Since when did it start flowing down silently.
The window froze, the ground soaked, even the wind was moist.
The whole world was wet after the rain.

People asked what is my name.
Even though I have said it loudly many times
yet all the time, like it was the first, my name was asked.
Indistinct face, even the name is forgotten.

Facing the sky, calling out my own name countless times.
That rumbling sound dispersed, once again forming rain, dripping down.
That is already a story from long ago.


#2
There is a doll with two heads.
Though there is only one heart, the doll has two faces.
Only one body, but two faces
living is twice as strenuous.

But the doll is very happy.
Because it can use two different faces
living a life different from all others.


#3
The teenager placed a notebook by his pillow.
Because he came down with an illness
an illness that has to be remembered no matter what.

87 thousand 6 hundred hours of records
his sorrowful notebook.
Never once had he shown anybody records of his innermost thoughts.

Now he very carefully opens up the notebook.
People start reading his notebook.
It includes both the story of the rain and the doll, the old and worn notebook




And this is for Ethleen though I'm not sure if you have seen it before. It's from page 84 of the book, topic being Jae Young Hyung. I'm so glad they are this close to even dedicate a page for him in the book :wub:


재영이 형

내가좋아하는 우리재영이 형
연극 하던 시잘부터 나의 정신적지주로
군림하고 있는 사랑하는나의형.
재영이 형이 무슨말을 하면
나는 묻지도 따지지도 않고 그냥따른다.
형에 대한믿음이 산처럼 크고 형이랑
나눠 마신 소주가바다보다 깊다.
형은 생긴 거랑다르게 아는 게많다.
생긴건 그냥 잘생긴 동네 아저씬데
말할때 보면 박학다식하자.
그냥박학다식한 게 아니라 세상돌아가는 이치를 알고
사람 사는 게 뭔지를 가르쳐준다.
내가 한국 영화에 대해서 말하면
형은 가만히 극고 있다 한마디한다.
아직은 들어야할때다.
나는 그말이 무슨 뜻인지잘안다.
형은 동생기운 내라고 이런 날도자주 한다.
너는 도대체 그런자신감이 어디서 나오는 거냐?
너빨리 할리우드 진출해라.
배우로 살아온 많은 날들과 배우로 살아갈
더많은 날들에 형이있어줘서 참 고맙다.
형도 내 마음을 알까?



Though I have the book but since I can't type Hangul I went to search around and found the Korean text from here: http://ameblo.jp/naominche/theme2-10030498718.html#main
There are other entries there from the book as well and it's in both Korean and Japanese. If anyone wants to help translate I'll be more than glad :lol

I was thinking about buying this book, but somehow it slipped my mind. Too busy to even search for this on the net. Ah, in the summer perhaps...
I can translate from both Korean or Japanese.
This book is on YesAsia maybe?

Once again I am reminded how much I miss Kim Nam Gil

He is so complete as a man I think. He might shake his head of course.

I want to see him act again and hear what he is doing once military life finishes.

Most of all I want to hear him sing. He has such musical way with a phrase. He has the way to bend a note and keep to the line and make it seem he is doing it all for the first and best time. He is a musician for sure.

come back little Nam Gil

Though I love his voice as it is, I don't mind some squealing from him :P Can I pinch him instead? Nvm I'll pull his hair and at the same time keep the dna for making another copy of him in future. muahaha

I bought the book from Innolife but they are all sold out now. I've emailed to inquire but they said many fans had requested them to contact the publishing company but they state that they will not be printing any more copies. Seems like its limited :-(

They suggest to try sites that might be selling used copies... I've asked them to help me look into it since some fans over at LJ had requested so I'll update you too if there's news from Innolife. But I guess you should have lesser difficulties getting a copy since you know Korean. I'm relying on Innolife just for that >.<

Long time no write, but I'm too busy even for his updates (oh, still in the boots, big surprise).
I will buy this book on my Birfday. And translate. Maaaybe.

There is just one thing that bothers me no end. when Nam Gil returns to us in any capacity, I want him to be sure he does not make any mistake when he chooses another film or drama.
Some of the actors have come back and chosen the worst vehicles to show how they look and what they can do after all that paperwork and discipline.

I am not being mean. There are one or two who picked a wonderful drama and role. Others are waffling around with no idea where they are going in their career. I will mention no names.
Just someone tell Nam Gil to be careful. Choose something for us to look at you and see you alive and well. Don't go all broody and melodramatic and dark and gloomy.
We want to be happy to see you again and see you smile and flirt with the girl in the story.

This July.

Oh I hope he can choose a good project. But from what I read, he's already being given some scripts, so maybe he can decide not in a hurry but with some consideration.
Bad thing is, even if actors think their project look great as the script, it may turn into a wreck when filming.

We tend to forget that a drama or film is really nothing to do with the actor most of the time. It is a director's medium. He is the one who sees the totality of the project and everyone has a different vision in mind. Actors are never really satisfied with what they have done and I always think it is because the final effort is what the director has in his mind from the start.

Friends with bene... benevolent spirit, yes yes...

@Peggy: you are absolutely right, actors seldom are responsible for movie/drama failure. Of course their talent or lack of thereof also counts, so they are not 100% free from blame. But it's director and writer that decide on the flow of the story.
As for Namgil, once he said he'd like to make a comedy since he's got none (well, this could also spare his character from dying. Maybe.)

Glad you love the man^^

Just thinking...

With so many singers and actors and idol boys being put into 'social services' in Seoul...will this result in general chaos once they leave said job and the following worker has to straighten up the books? Not all entertainers have the requisite degrees to deal with rules and regs. and taxes and traffic tickets. And so on and so on.

Just wondering. :whistling:

It's mostly not Seoul, dear^^

Some of the idols will be participating in an active duty. IF (and it's a big IF) agencies don't damage them first (*cough* SMEnt *cough*), so don't worry, the chaos is... no, wait, jeez, if mah baby will be put into this, it will be the last day for Korea... chaos everywhere... :mrgreen:

Yes, well I was being a bit lazy and using Seoul, although they have been sending them to outskirts etc. I remember being so surprised when So Ji Sub was doing office work somewhere in the outer areas. First I wondered wby not in active duty and then I wondered how so many of his ajumma fans could take lunch every day for him and the rest of the staff.Offices were right in town area and reachable. They were finally asked not to go because it was causing problems.
Never did know his health problems either.

Won Bin just went into the army and did his time. I think something to do with canine unit. Not sure.

As for Won Bin, I remember Aili said he had his duty shortened because he was in the hospital for some time during it. Can't remember the details.

Yep, I've loved him first as Bidam. I cried when I discovered he starred in No Regrets. But because I do not judge people, I pulled myself together and made a choice...that is, to love him still no matter what...

I wouldn't have known more about KNG without you. I even used the quote you placed under your photo in facebook account, KNG mentioning about popularity. Thank you very much!

Is there an international fan club for KNG...I'm from Manila.... thank you!

There is an international fanclub based in Seoul, but after they're gone official, you have to re-sign again.
And since I'm not the usual fangirl material (one of my dearest maknaes says I give "harsh love"), I don't belong to it anymore, I used to. Fandoms usually don't allow you to criticize an actor - as how he portrays his/her character, etc. You just can't show you think on your own. You HAVE to follow the herd.
But if you have your own opinion, you're the most welcome her (or on my blog:P)
I adore and admire KNG, but I absolutely hate Bidam. I love how he portrayed him, but I'd burn the character on stake. If you know what I'm saying.
My first encounter with KNG was actually No Regret in a very specific place and time. I pledged my mind to him after that.

I'm not sober to talk about this anymore :alcoholic:

I don't really remember how long I have loved this actor. Nam Gil is so different as a person as well as as an actor isn't he. I thought No Regrets was incredible and his portrayal was heartbreaking. Brave director also.
I loved his idea about Bidam and it certainly made a success of QDS which would never have happened with such immense support without Nam Gil. He had the most striking appearance in first scenes and afterwards he became the most dastardly of people. Such sadness in the one scene with his mother who would not accept him. After that he changed and the actor took over the whole personality of a rejected son and lover.I know h e hated that character but he still made it a standout which is the mark of a good and tru actor. He was just as solid in Solo and I only hope that when he returns to acting he will find a wonderful role that he will like and enjoy doing and we will be in heaven seeing him again. I would truly like to see him woo and win his love in a real romanctic story. One with some meat on it's bones.

It's almost time isn't it. I hope he has had plenty of free time to read scripts and I hope he is ready to begin. It will be like having a meal after being on chemo for months and months and having no appetite. suddenly hunger kicks in and a beautiful meal is before me. Kim Nam Gil will satiate all hungers.

Rumor has it, he will be in a drama almost immediately after release. One month left, so we'll see. I'm not going to hyper myself. I've learned my lesson with Jihun. He was also supposed to be in a drama right after finishing his military duty, then it suddenly vanished, and he had to resign from musical too due to his vocal chords.
So, I waited 2 years, I can wait another few weeks/months.

So, the Man is back. YTN entertainment news reported it first. Now, he's going to Japan for Bad Guy promo, and on July 23rd he'll go to New Zeland.

Rumors about Secret Liaisons (Relationship) based on My Girlfriend is an Agent movie is off the list, but still Woochi is on the table.

I make no sense, I know.

OK Why send him further away from us to N.Zealand? Why not at least an interview for Entertainment Tonight. Why not tell us when he will go into session for new project.

Why N.Zealand???????

Ummm! Maybe you should reconsider the "faithful" term in E-Chan's case. Unless it was meant sarcastically of course. :whistling:

But Issy, Sham is right, I was faithful... to the extent that no one new entered my harem... you know me, woman... Plus I'm faithful in terms of my long committment. Only problem is that it's not for one guy...
Thanks esmer for a kitty, I'm as happy yet more guttery :P

Still nothing about next work (undetermined, according to Korean sources)
As for New Zeland - agency reported it will be a photoshoot.

Some pics from last year, hoping he looks as healthy^^ (from what was leaked, I bet he does)

And this empty counter was the happiest sight:

Will be reporting as soon as I get few hours of sleep. Over.

It's been ages since I've checked in. A little thing called "summer" finally showed up in my town, so I've been busy hoarding up a year's supply of vitamin D. 8)
What better place to start than the KNG thread. Oh, to think that sexy man has been finally been set free! Any fresh sightings, fellow d-addicts?

Rumor has it, he's considering appearing in a blockbuster drama "Joseon 119" (or sth along).
He helped produce music movie "Ensemble" and the pics above are from Movie and Music festival he was speaking a bit about it (the movie), damn, I can't express myself today.

That's all I know for now.
