[English] 2015.6.18 ~ Congratulations Seung Gi on Your First Movie Award! Official Airen Fanclub’s Tweet

Seung Gi, although I didn’t have the time to blog any of the fanpics, fancams, press videos, press photos, etc. from your memorable day, I just wanted to congratulate you for winning the award for Popular Actor in your movie debut, Love Forecast.  Although my new work schedule is long and hectic not to mention that it also runs on Korean Standard Time like yours, I can’t let this day just pass by without at least one post marking such a happy day! The Official Airen Fanclub also tweeted their congratulations a little over an hour ago along with 2 photos:

My Visit to Itaewon~ Marley Coffee & Love Forecast Filming Location, My Thai China

This past Friday, I had a conference in Seoul so I had some time to stop by Itaewon for a cup of Marley Coffee and to see the restaurant, My Thai China, where Love Forecast was filmed. For those who have already watched the movie and seen the the previews, it’s the scene where Jun Soo plays rock, paper, scissors with Andrew to see who pays the dinner bill. Jun Soo loses and while he’s paying the bill, Andrew and Hyun Woo drive off without him, leaving him running down the staircase after them.  The mural on the wall by the staircase is unique and I made sure to take a decent photo of it to share with you. ^^

m1 m2 m3 m4 m5As you can see, the menu is very diverse and the place was bustling with people on Friday night.

Here is the famous mural on the restaurant’s wall that appears in Love Forecast:

That’s the end of my visit to My Thai China. After crossing an alleyway, across the street was Itaewon’s Marley Coffee. I stopped by to purchase their Limited Edition Americano and Summer Edition Stainless Steel Tumbler.

m16The Single Origin Americano was really deep tasting without any sugar, exactly the way I like my Americano. It wasn’t like the other slightly sweet RTD Americano version sold in CU stores for 2,000 Won less. It was worth the 4,700 Won which in US Dollars is about $3.50 a bottle. The stainless steel tumbler was 16,000 Won which is approx $14 US dollars.

m14 m15At the second floor with affogato, my favorite item from their dessert menu. I inserted the straw upside down, but no matter. You get the idea. 😉

So glad to see proof shots from various theaters across Japan. Thanks to Hanrize and the Airen leaders of 3 districts (Roppongi, Nagoya, Kansai)  in Japan for sharing their photos. The response so far has been positive with complete sell outs and plans to add additional screenings. In addition, I saw many tweets today from Japanese Airens saying that they were going to watch it again.

Japan Love Forecast Autographed Poster Giveaway

Love Forecast will premiere in Japan next Saturday, May 9th, and Cinemart Roppongi in Tokyo is holding a special event for movie goers until May 31st JST.  Seung Gi apparently autographed 18 posters~ 9 each of two versions, A and B.  One needs to submit 3 ticket stubs to enter the drawing. Thanks to Hanrize who received this information from Yochi-san. One comment she made was “Why aren’t the posters in Japanese?” I guess the English version is standard across Asia.
