[English] Hwayugi Episode 17 Wallpapers


“I like you more and more. Even at this moment as I’m looking at you, you become prettier.”


If he’s alive, would he resemble you?

Woo Ma Wang


PK: When I see that face, I can’t help but to be fooled. Because you’re my younger brother.

ASN: That’s right. In the future, please continue to be fooled.


No matter what happens to us, what’s sweet is sweet, and what you like is what you like.


From the beginning we had a deadly fate.

Predator and prey.


I sleep well here…

Ah Sa Nyeo


Become a king. I’ll make you into one.

Son Oh Gong

[English] Hwayugi Episode 15 Wallpapers

He’s found his bride but the groom continues to sleep. Human Jin Sun Mi loves the Great Sage Equal to Heaven, Son Oh Gong. Now, let’s end your love.  

I’m going to do it. I’m going to do it with my one and only bride in this world. 

Son Oh Gong 

I need that incense burner in order to find my bride.

Son Oh Gong 

JSM: Please don’t come. I cause you to get hurt.

SOG: Then try killing me in this place.

SOG: When I am scared, struggling, or in danger, you said you’d come and protect me if I called your name. 

In the end, I’ll be able to fool your heart also.

There is nothing I can do for her. The pain of not knowing where she is or how she is doing, that’s what my 1,000 years were like. 

You really love and cherish her, don’t you?

15.5.21~ Severance Hospital Family Concert Photos by Our Home Hospitality ~ True Meaning of A Star

These photos show what a star truly is. Humble, quietly working behind the scenes, putting in every ounce of his care into each gift basket for the patients and their families at the Severance Hospital Family Concert. Seeing the photo of Seung Gi focusing so hard while putting stickers on every single packaged muffin made me so proud to be his fan. How can one NOT love Lee Seung Gi?  🙂

Marley Coffee Asia’s Update

Last week, I posted my experiences at both branches of Marley Coffee at Itaewon and the grand opening in Gangnam. Marley Coffee Asia just updated their site with a mini photo journal of Rohan Marley’s four day stay in Korea.  The photo I took of his message at the Itaewon branch was written on Monday, January 26th, according to a Marley Coffee employee. Here are photos of his visit along with a group photo with Seung Gi taken during Marley Coffee Gangnam’s VIP launching party on the 27th.

[Eng Subbed] Today’s Love Original Teaser from Facebook

Are you excited? Seung Gi’s debut on the silver screen will take place on January 15, 2015 with the premiere of his first movie, Today’s Love.  I don’t like to upload videos without translations if possible, so here is an English subbed version.   A correction on the first translation when the student asks Junsu teacher if his girlfriend is “that a**h*le.” A more accurate word is b**ch.  In Korean culture, women are not referred to as a**h*les when using derogatory language.  Unfortunately, there are worse terms used to describe females when using curse words.

Today’s Love~ Lee Seung Gi & Moon Chae Won’s Good Luck Message to Korean Examinees

Tomorrow, November 13, 2014, is a big day for Korean high school students in their third year. It is equivalent to the senior year in American high schools. The exam is similar to the SAT and is called “Soo Neung”.  It is a “make it or break it” exam for students who wish to enter elite universities. Competition is fierce and it is a stressful day for both students and their relatives.  It occurs every year at the beginning of November and it is an important exam that will determine a young Korean’s future.  Results take about 1 month to process.  The examinees need to report to their designated testing locations by 8am KST and the exam usually finishes around 3pm KST. For more on Soo Neung, please visit my post from last year, when Seung Gi was cheering students on from Croatia: http://wp.me/p3JNUN-jQ

Seung Gi: Hello, I’m Lee Seung Gi from’ Today’s Love’

Moon Chae Won: I’m Moon Chae Won

SG: To high school senior examinees who have worked hard studying for the past 18 years! There aren’t that many days left now until the potential for dating that you’ve kept hidden and saved explodes.

MCW: Hey~these days, students manage to study and do everything else too~

SG: Oh, is that right? How do you know that so well? (chuckles)

SG: To all examinees who are watching this video! I really wish for you to complete your Soo Neung well and for it to be a huge success!

MCW: This winter, please do well on the Soo Neung and it would be nice if you could start dating happily.  ‘Today’s Love’ is cheering you on!

SG: ‘Today’s Love’ and all examinees as well, fighting!

Closing Caption on white background: ‘Today’s Love’ is cheering on all examinees.

Message to Admins of International Groups, Facebook Pages, and Blogs

Dear Readers,

I’ve been noticing many blogs and facebook sites that are continuing to use my translations without giving proper credit to me and my blog. I freely share my translations with the International Airen community, but I am disappointed to see this breach of common courtesy continuing.  Please think about the time I spend translating information on my blog before translating it into your native language. It’s common etiquette to credit the original source and I’ve seen too many sites uploading my translations without mentioning any credit to me or my blog.  If this continues, I will have no choice but to reconsider doing translations on my blog.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.



*Please credit Elise Min, Lee Seung Gi Forever if you plan to use any of my translations to translate into your native language.

Pizza Hut’s Promotional Event on Facebook and Photos of My Taco Pizza & In House Promos

Seung Gi’s Taco Pizza is getting a lot of spotlight these days  from Pizza Hut. I stopped by my local Pizza Hut to pick up a pie for me and my coworkers during dinner. Here are photos of my pizza followed by some promotions of their Taco Pizza in the restaurant. In addition, Pizza Hut’s Facebook site is offering a promotion for it as well.


Photo taken as soon as my pizza came out~ I unwrapped the pretty red ribbon packaging to see this! 🙂


A close up photo of the actual pizza with crispy lettuce, mildly spicy salsa, pickles, parmesan cheese, and hot sauce. By the time I left work, there was only 1 slice left.

This is one of the in store promotions for the Taco Pizza ~ Korea has 3 major mobile service carriers~ KT, LG U+, and SK Telecom. All 3 have a discount card that can be used at designated places.  For a limited time during the months of July and August, take 20% off the original price. I don’t usually eat pizza because it’s so ridiculously expensive in Korea. I’m too used to the more reasonable prices for a pie in the USA. However, call it the Lee Seung Gi effect; blogging about his Taco Pizza yesterday made me hungry and I caved. LOL.

I paid about $17.00 for a large pie because I went to the restaurant to pick it up. They give a 10,000 Won ($10 US dollars) discount for picking up your own order.

[English] Pizza Hut’s New Taco Pizza~ Seung Gi Shows How It’s Eaten ^^

My mouth is watering and I think I’ll order a pie tonight to share with my coworkers for dinner. Seung Gi had also treated the entire YAAS cast and crew to pizza during filming not too long ago. I’m really curious about how it tastes. A fellow Korean Airen on twitter told me that it was sweet and spicy.  Ah~ It’s dinner time and I’m really getting hungry now.  🙂


How to wrap and eat Lee Seung Gi’s Taco Pizza which was revealed on the set of ‘You’re All Surrounded’!


Step 1. First, put the fresh and crispy lettuce on top of the Taco Pizza.


Step 2. Put a spoon of spicy salsa sauce on top!


Step 3.  Fold the pizza “cutely” aka neatly!

Now~ Complete!

In just one bite, you’ll be able to feel the Mexican fragrance filling the inside of your mouth!
