It’s been 7 years since I’ve left my home in the United States to work overseas here in my country of birth, South Korea. There’s not a single place you can go without seeing his image. The other day, I saw his KB CF on the side of a public bus. This was during a conversation with my uncle in the car and I squealed with delight…much to my uncle’s dismay. ^^ My fangirling has gotten worse now that I’m actually living in the same country as Seung Gi. It’s very difficult to go about daily life without seeing his image. Before last year’s Hope Concert, KB bank had his posters everywhere…and there are many KB banks near my residence. While Noonas over Flowers was airing, public buses had clips of the most recent episode playing. The supermarket is the best place to see Seung Gi…toothpaste, Cuckoo rice cookers, water filters.. My parents who visited from the USA last fall couldn’t believe their eyes at what had happened to their “professional and mature” daughter whom they had seen a few years ago. Snapping photos of Cuckoo products and asking for catalogs became second nature to me.
Meanwhile, my parents got nervous and started getting concerned as this was a side of me they had never seen before. LOL. Today, I happened to see Seung Gi’s Berocca CF at my hospital’s pharmacy and snapped 2 photos to share with you. Berocca vitamins cost 20,000 Won or about $20 US dollars per box. They’re like Alka-Seltzer…just drop one into cold water and watch the orange or lemon flavored tablet fizz and dissolve into a vitamin drink. The pharmacist knows I’m a huge Seung Gi fan and gladly obliged. She promised to give me the poster if she ever planned to replace it. ^^
