Kim Myung Min made my Saturday (and my husband’s) extra special. I have posted before that my husband and I have been fans of this extra talented actor since we saw him in the Korean epic drama “Admiral Yi Sun Shin.” We also loved him on “Beethoven Virus”, which was a surprise hit for MBC. When we saw his new CF (commercial film) last week, we laughed at how well he delivered his lines.
Anyway, my husband just wanted to skate at Seoul Plaza last Saturday. We arrived there at 2PM and I lined at to get a ticket while my husband bought donuts. We ate the donuts at Deoksugung, which is one of the palaces in Seoul. Since it was cold and the ticket I got was for the 5:30 PM round, we decided to walk to Kyobo Mungo (bookstore) at Gwanghwamun.
At the main entrance of Kyobo Mungo was a pretty big crowd and the curious us stopped and saw Kim Myung Min’s banner near the entrance. Kim Myung Min was signing autographs for the 4-CD album “Kim Myung Min’s Classic Maestro” that is produced by EMI Records. The album signing began at 3PM while we got there at around 4 o’clock. I joined the crowd outside taking pictures while my boys went inside the bookstore. My husband was already happy that he caught a glimpsed of his favorite actor. Yikes! We really acted like fans!
Here’s a video of last Saturday’s sighting.
I also saw Choi Min Sik (of “Failan” and “Old Boy”) outside the same bookstore three years ago.
