Lately GTV has done a lot of promotion by uploading video clips of “My Golden Life”. I will share some here which have been shared through Twitter.

No doubt, “My Golden Life” will become as successful in Taiwan as it has been in South Korea and Japan. Enjoy watching!

Park Si Hoo Confirmed Lead Role “Lovely Horribly”

Park Si Hoo

The news is out for a few days already, but Park Si Hoo has confirmed he will play the male lead role in upcoming KBS2 drama “Lovely Horribly” (러블리 호러블리). He shared a few photos on his Weibo and Instagram to introduce his new character “Philip Yu” (유피립).

Song Ji Hyo (송지효) has confirmed her lead role too. She will play ghost writer Ji Eul Sun (지을손).

Park Si Hoo & Song Ji Hyo
The drama script looks interesting. It is a new genre, Horror Romantic Drama, which was one of the reasons Park Si Hoo decided to take on the role of Philip Yu. So very challenging how the audience will respond to it!

Philip Yu and Ji Eul Sun are born at the same time and share a twisted fate. When one is doing well, the other is doing bad. Philip Yu is a top star whose acting career is skyrocketing. Ji Eul Sun is struggling with her career, but always shows a bright and happy face. As a sheer twist of fate they are going to work on the same drama project. How will this work out? Will this couple with their twisted fates manage to find happiness together after all?

“Lovely Horribly” is a 16-episode drama and will start in August 2018. Airing time is every Monday and Tuesday evening from 22:00 to 23:10 hours (Korean time) on KBS2.

Filming has already started. I hope I can watch too, but as current drama “Are You Human?” is locked for The Netherlands, chances are probably small.

Shipping costs are added separately to the sales price. Additional customs clearance costs and VAT may be charged at delivery of the package depending on your country’s regulations.

A few days ago I placed my preorder and I am so excited. I have ordered before with HMV & Books online, when Park Si Hoo’s first movie “Confession of Murder” was released. Although DVDs from Japan have no English subtitles I never regretted this. So many extras came with it!

Don’t let this unique chance to extend your Park Si Hoo collection slip through your fingers. I could not and did not want to let this opportunity pass by. How about you?

Official Launch “Park Si Hoo in Nederlands” 2018.05.03

Launch "Park Si Hoo in Nederlands"

Edited by Wilma (Peris)

It took much longer than I expected when I started to create the website “Park Si Hoo in Nederlands”, but finally the official launch is there!

https://parksihoonl.wilma-online.nl

I tried to give as much information as possible about who Park Si Hoo is and his works in the Dutch language at the fixed pages. Although I may add some other pages later on, I am satisfied enough for the official launch today! 😀

During the “silent” time I noticed many viewers from abroad were visiting the website as well. That’s why I decided to insert a translation plug-in too. Not everyone is using the Chrome browser after all! So I hope to have been of help to everyone who wants to support Park Si Hoo!

Together with the website I have created some additional accounts to spread the news about anything Park Si Hoo more widely!

I will do my best to attract attention for Park Si Hoo and his works in
The Netherlands too!

A Magical Birthday Event 2018.04.01

This year I have been able to attend Park Si Hoo’s Birthday Event for the first time and it was a magical experience!

Park Si Hoo Birthday Tour 2018Check-in for the Birthday Tour was on Saturday March 31, but I arrived at Seoul on March 28 for a two-weeks holiday. My lovely landlady took care of most of my luggage in my room, while I stayed at Imperial Palace Hotel for the Birthday Event.

It was great to meet with all the sisters I only knew from online interactions. Many of them came to greet me. I was really overwhelmed by so much attention. After all, I am just another Park Si Hoo fan who happens to live in The Netherlands!

I enjoyed very much to meet with all of you. It has made my first attendance of the Park Si Hoo Birthday Celebration even more precious. So one more time, thank you all for introducing yourself to me!

Wilma at Park Si Hoo Birthday Tour 2018

The Celebration was held on 7th floor and the rice wreaths were exhibited in the foyer. Early Sunday it was best to take photos, but as official photos were taken too I don’t have many. Later on it was just too crowded.

The group of International fans from Singapore, Malaysia and
The Netherlands shared a table together. We had table 8 which was on second row from stage left from center. We had a good view on stage. As it wasn’t allowed to take pictures during the event, this screen photo from before the MC appeared on stage, is the only one I took and share!

Park Si Hoo Birthday Tour 2018

Although it was my first time, I was not as nervous as I expected I would be. Only when my roommate and I took the elevator down stairs, I felt my heartbeat in my throat for a short while. I managed to relax soon. I just didn’t want to miss anything because of being nervous! Yes, I felt excited and I think this must have been visible for everyone.

Park Si Hoo appeared out of nowhere in a box next to stage. Then he walked from table to table to present a towel flower to each of us. We could watch his way on screen too. When he finally reached our table, I felt a little trembling inside, but I don’t know if it showed. I managed to say “Gamsahamnida” when he handed me the flower. I could only smile. For a moment I was caught in the Park Si Hoo aura. He was so gorgeous and his eyes so beautiful! Yes, I caught his eyes!

Park Si Hoo Birthday Tour 2018

The celebration passed by so quickly. I don’t remember all the details clearly. We sang the birthday song for Park Si Hoo which the MC had rehearsed with us. I could sing along, because this was the only song I had repeated so many times at Korean school that it wasn’t difficult to recall! Of course, we ended with the heart signs to express our love for Park Si Hoo!

Park Si Hoo answered questions. He performed small plays with some sisters on stage. Right or wrong questions. If we had the same answer as
Park Si Hoo we passed to next question. I just gambled, but finally I lost and had to sit down. Park Si Hoo read some messages hanging in the tree. At first Park Si Hoo had to guess blindfolded what he was touching and then he had to do it together with two fans. It was fun to watch the play of hands. Oh, and not to forget, three sisters were so lucky to taste the seaweed soup Park Si Hoo had boiled on stage!

Then there was a small break in which behind the scenes of “My Golden Life” were shown. As I went to the restroom I missed most of this.

Then a big surprise! Park Si Hoo showed us he is also a real magician! He did even the locked in cage trick together with a female assistant. Wow, he must have practiced very hard to show us all his tricks. He smiled happily while doing his magical performance!

The magician disappeared from stage and the singer Park Si Hoo returned with “Season in the Sun”. I always love it when Park Si Hoo is singing. Such a warm and deep voice!

And then…..photo shoot time! It took a long time before our table could queue up for the photo with Park Si Hoo on stage. I felt excited, but not nervous. I was fully present in the moment. It passed by so quickly though that I can’t believe it really happened. I shook hands with Park Si Hoo, sat down for the photo, still holding hands, stand up, said thanks and goodbye and left stage. The photo of the two of us is my proof I have not been dreaming! However, this photo I will keep private. It is my very own precious keepsake!

And so the birthday celebration was finished. Park Si Hoo left and we had our dinner.

I am really happy that I took the plunge to attend this birthday celebration. It was a magical experience. Passed by so quickly. but I have been eyeing Park Si Hoo from very close, sat next to him and experienced the special atmosphere surrounding a fan meeting with him. Park Si Hoo is a very special man. So warm, so close with his fans. It is something you feel when you are present and can’t experience from watching a DVD or imagine from hear say. It is something I want to experience again! So if I am able to, I will attend again as soon as I can!

Photos taken by Wilma, thank you!
