Running Man with Kim Hyunsoo of Doosan Bears #50 ♥



어제 밤에 드디어 런닝맨 봤다… 완전 웃기고 내가 많이 웃었고 숨이 막혔고 배도 아팠다.. 
초능력 야구 처음 봤을때도 그렇거 추신수 선수 때문에 많이 웃었다.
추 “오빠”가 많이 화났어서 더 웃겨.. 
이번 초능력 야구가 더 재밌다~
근데 수지(미쓰 에이)가 야구 잘 못하는거 이해 못해~ 야구 있는 나라에서 왜 야구 몰라? 어려운 규칙 말구 그냥 어떻게 해야 하는거 어느 쭉 뛰어야 하고 그런거. 쉽지? 그게 그냥 보통 사람들이 아는 것 아냐? 지난 초능력 야구가 김종국이 야구 제일 못하는 사람이야~ 이번에 딱 수지다… =,=



암튼 우리 현수 스크린에서 많이 나왔어서 너무 기뻐!! ㅋㅋㅋ 아 정말 그 웃는 표정 너무 그립다. 현수가 류현진 선수랑 동갑이라는거 처음 들었다. 현수가 더 젊어 보인것 같은데~ ㅋㅋ 아 우리 사랑 하는 김맹구맹구 ㅠㅠ 
결국은 현수 팀이 졌어 그래서 우승 반지 못 받았다.. 현수가 실망해 보이고 우승 반지 계속 봤어~ 하지만 웃음 많이 나왔고 장난도 많이 했어~ 근데 그 큰 웃음은 수지때문에 아니지? ㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎ [누나 폭풍 질투]

현수야... 사랑해 

*뿌듯*

Lee Jongwook Oppa ♥



Painful...

During the weekend I re-explored the pictures on my old iPod and there I was at Doosan Bears folder, opening the pictures one by one, I just found out that I have so many pictures of Lee Jongwook (player #39 of Doosan Bears) beside a lot of Lim Taehoon and of course my favorite, Jung Soobin. Short explanation, Lee Jongwook is a center outfielder of Doosan Bears until this year when Doosan decided to let him go to his new team, NC Dinos (whose manager used to be Doosan's manager back in 2011 before he resigned). When I browsed through the photo gallery, I felt pain, especially when I saw those pics of him and Soobin and with other players. When can I see him playing as Doosan player again? I never properly grief because I keep on thinking about something else until yesterday (Sunday) when I was alone at my hasook.



Actually the video when he greeted Dinos fan together with his team mate who also went to NC Dinos, Son Shiheon, broke me up the most. I didn't realize it all until they appeared at the video asking support from Dinos fans. I suddenly almost broke into tears. How about us? We love you too. We have a support song that is sung only for you. Do you know how special you are to us, Doosan fans? I feel so sad. Indeed, he is not my main favorite player but to me he will never leave. He has been really dilligent during practice, someone even tweeted along with a picture saying that after the rain he would go out first (while the team is still inside the room) and he would clean up the dugout. He has always been that dilligent. If you follow Doosan for a few years, you would never think he would ever leave considering his loyalty towards the team.



He has been really close with Soobin too. They always run together, catching balls and covering each other at the out field. He is a leader. I don't know how would Doosan go on without him and I don't know how Soobin (left outfielder) and Hyunsoo (right outfielder) would do after their hyung left the team.



I cried really hard. I did not get the reason why he would left the team. Did he really have to go? Who got the idea to change team? Is it because of money? I really don't get it.

Anyway, dearest Jongwook Oppa... I am waiting for you to comeback. I will go to Korea one day... maybe in five years.. by that time your contract with NC will be finished and I hope you will be back to Doosan and you will decide to retire with Doosan.

이종욱 선수 사랑합니다. 오늘까지 이해 못하지만 오빠를 안 미워요. 기다릴게요..
두산으로 다시 돌아오기 ^^
우리 잠깐 헤어지는거 잘 참을거야!!

두산 베어스 #31한테 늦은 고백 ♥ Confession for Doosan Bears #31



Out of the blue.. a friend looked at my phone wallpaper and asked me merciless-ly, “Why do you like him? He is not even handsome.”

From that question I want to untie all the things about him in my head. Why is it?

His name is Jung Soobin. He is my favorite baseball player from Korea. He turned 23 this year and now he plays for Doosan Bears, a baseball team located in Seoul.




In appearance, without his uniform he will look exactly like common university student who wear t-shirt or front button checkered shirt with an MLB hat and jeans pants. Nothing flashy stuffs like expensive bag or shoes or whatever. He really doesn’t look like a young man who makes more than 10 thousands dollars a year. I could be wrong about his transfer value, the point is that he is someone who plays at Korean series baseball. He is famous among baseball fans in Korea. 



When I start liking Doosan Bears, he was not even the first player that I know. When I saw him the first time, he was walking across the field near my seat and I just thought he is such a young player (he was probably 21 at that time but he looked 17-ish, lol). I even took picture of him (my first baseball photos ever). Soon I learned who he is by looking at his position at the field. After a few games that I went to, I like him more and more. When I have my proper camera, I took a lot of his pictures candidly at the field and I always smiled at the results. He is such a happy person, infield or outfield and he is a shy person. A really shy one. 



If people ask me, why do I like him out of other players who are more mature and handsome than him? I always smiled at the questioner and shook my head. I don’t know why. Maybe because he is cute and he is a lot younger that makes me want to treat him like a little dongsaeng? I don’t know. I like him without particular reasons, until yesterday a close friend sent me my picture that I edited to match Soobin’s picture (posted at his cyworld). That picture was a photo when Soobin ate meat at samgyopsal place, kinda and I found out that I have exactly the same style of photo so I put them together as if we were in the same place eating together. It was so pathetic but looking at that picture makes me happy. Hahaha.. Then my friend said that I look good together (with him). Thissss… hahahaha.. I never even dare to think I stand a chance. I swear I never dream to be that someone for him. I have this respect for him, although he is a lot younger than me. This sudden message totally made my day, and I slept happily last night. Hope floats, okay! LOL How come everything that comes up with his name always bring me happiness and draws smiles on my face? It is just me, totally me~



This morning, I told my friend more about him. I found out that there are new discoveries that I happened to grab when I tell the story of him.

This is how I explain to my friend about who Jung Soobin is:



He is my 이상형 (read: ee-sang-hyeong, means: ideal type, Korean language). He is exactly the type of guy that I want to marry one day, except that he is a lot younger than me. I learned a lot about him by seeing him on the field, reading articles about him, besides I also had two direct interactions with him via internet (facebook message and cyworld message). For me, that is enough to figure what kind of person he is. Starting from the facebook message that I got, it happened a year ago when out of the blue he started to make a facebook account and accepting friendship applications from people. I was lucky that he accepts mine too. Out of exploding enthusiasm, I messaged him telling that I support him and stuffs like that, also I stupidly asked him how to send presents to him and shamelessly at the end of the message I said I love you. OTL. Oh my God… you can see where my over-enthusiasm lead me most of the time. Yes, DOOM. Within one day I got a reply. Very short one but it leaves such a huge understanding.



If I may translate, this message said:
You come at last Bears gathering (event), right?^^
I have accepted your presents^^
Thank you for always supporting me ^^


I was blown away to cloud 9 at that time. I lost words, I felt like my chest blew off and it was like a dream coming true. He is real. Only 3 sentences, short ones, yet they opened a huge door of understanding about what kind of person Soobin is. He remembered me coming to his row at Doosan Bears fanmeeting on 2011. As far as my memory could bring me, it brings me to a scene with Soobin’s pupils got bigger in astonishment which I am sure it was because I am not even Korean but how could I be there, in his row asking for his autograph. For your information, in fanmeeting if you want to get players’ signs, you must stand in line from 4 am in the morning because each group will only give 100 fansign tickets. I was there with a friend and indeed we were in line from 3.30 in the morning. Amazing, right? Each group consists of 4 players and there were about 4-5 groups. I chose Soobin’s row of course, although in fact I already have a ball with his sign given by an Oppa I know at the field. Besides, it was also because at that time I have prepared gifts for him, a Russian shirt (I have one exactly the same with smaller size), a can of candy, a Tablo CD (his first solo album) and maybe an Indonesia postcard with my own writing and a photo of him that I took. All gathered in a bag and guess what? I was so out of my sanity that I even forgot to hand it to him directly when I was in front of him asking for signatures. Another regret was why did not I look at his eyes longer as it was really my last time seeing him because my study term was finished which means I have to go back for good, to my beloved country? I was too nervous taking care of 2 balls that he must sign (one for that friend, one for me) and two photos that he must signs (which one of them he managed to write my name on it. It was a messy morning, me without make up and looking all tired because I didn’t sleep and we had no breakfast. I must look ugly at that time, but I did not care. As long as I can see him really close, looked at his eyes for a mere second... did not even remember if I even shook hands with him? I don't think so. I don’t know. My heart almost jumped from its place and I hardly can think of anything. I even forgot to hand him his presents because I was totally out of my mind and being busy all by myself. *cries. I ended up running to the last girl on the row (she was wearing skirt, I believe) and I asked her to give my gift for Soobin. I tried to look to Soobin’s table whether he accepted my gift or not, but I couldn’t find my gift among a big pile of gifts from his fans. Soon I forgot it. Yet, this message brought me back to that time. He remembered me, it matters most out of all the clutters I made, etc.











































I have written messages to other players too, saying that I support them, etc. They usually just say something like thanks for supporting, I will do my best next year, etc. It seems like a defaulted answers a baseball player have to provide to be polite and nice to fans. Comparing it to the message that I get... can you understand me well and my extreme happiness because of those 3 sentences?

He is so kind. He remembers people who came to him for less than 2 minutes. I am really thankful for the spared memory he has to remember me. Hahah! That eventually erased my disappointment for not being able to take picture with him while I was in Korea. If I had to choose one, either
he wants to take picture with me but then forgot me right away, or this three-line-messages, I undoubtfully will choose the latter. It means a lot for me more than anything else, even more than the first time he accepted my friendship application on cyworld.

Since then I keep up with his news from internet and this year, I got the chance to stream the playoff games and Korean series games at the office. I saw him with his more mature feature and better baseball skills. He had been on his low point of his career this year when other people substituted him, but he came back to his top performance and even got MVP at playoff games twice. I am a proud fan. A proud Noona fan.

As a person, I really want to see him happy. When I think about him, I always pray to God that he could find someone who is sincere to him and love him not because of his money and what he is now. He deserves the love that he has been giving to the people around him. Lately I sent him a congratulatory message and I also suggests him to meet someone special who is as good as him, as kind-hearted as him, if he is not already do. I really mean it. As I told you, I don’t even want to dream of being his girlfriend or something. That is not my way of loving him and it never crossed my mind either. Soobin has taught me so many things beside his kindness that shines brightly from his smiles. He teaches me to be strong and that it is okay to be weak sometimes but to get up with determination to succeed is a must. He is a precious person, and I really wish for his lifetime happiness by finding a great girlfriend who can be someone he could lean on when he is down and later can be a wife who can provide warmth and perseverance to live his life happily~
사랑해 수비나.. 영원히 안 잊을게!^^

Morning RANt

This few days, hasook halmoni has always been very loud in the morning waking us up, turning off lamps at the aisle and the most annoying is telling us to shower~ WHAT ON EARTH??? SERIOUSLY!!! I work hundreds of miles from my mother not to hear other people doing exactly the same thing (telling me to shower early in the morning) besides... I shower only after I'm done cooking... mind your own life cycle~!! 

짜증 to the 나!!! 

That's how I start this day. It doesn't stop there tho~
I took a bus, it was really fully packed of people (JAKARTA in the morning, yes!!), after a while someone went off and I took over his seat.. Some people stood right in front of me for I got the back seat with no seats in front of me. 
It was okay... until the driver decided to step on the break all of sudden and I dunno where was the idea came from.. my left arm stretched out trying to find something to maintain my balance and here it was landed on a man's butt. 
WHATDAFUG, REALLY??!!!! WHY?!!! WHY!! My face.. turned color into.. the upper part of traffic light.. SHIT!!!! 

It continues.. don't worry~
When I wanted to get out of the bus... another man wanted to take over my seat and a woman next to him (further than my position) did not want to give me a way out from the bus. I ended up pushed the man... ACCIDENTALLY (bcos I need to get out, MIND YOU) and guess where my hand landed~ I dunno where was that.. all I kno it was an area on his stomach or something.. I DID NOT EVEN WANT TO THINK ABOUT IT further!!!! FFFFFFFF!!! What day is it today and why did these things happened to me in the morning, my crankiest time of the day? Arghhh!! Not that I want them to happen on the other time tho~ 아아악!! 쪽팔려 죽겠어 ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ


and then this photo of 빵 shows up on my twitter timeline... OTL

weakly waves,

Did You Steal My Pictures?

A photographer, either a serious one or an easy-going one*raises hand sometimes has this fear that their pictures might get stolen byother people with whatever purposes. That is why we tend to put watermark (WM)at our pictures thinking that it might lower the risk, but seriously… peopleare smarter and WM can be erased with photoshop in seconds.

Recently, I have a small convo with a famous photographer inIndonesia named Arbain Rambey via twitter. He is a senior photographer who hashis own TV program (about photography) and his own websites that displays hisphotos, which are surprisingly uploaded without any watermark.

Out of curiosity I mentioned him on twitter. I asked whydidn’t he put WM at his pictures. His first answer really knocked me out..sorta~ He said, “if people steal my photos, how much money did I lose? Ifpeople do not steal my photos, how much money will I gain?” I cannot help notto agree more and it is from someone whose photos are famous and widely usedfor commercials in Indonesia, etc. I look back at my photos and think… are myphotos even worth stealing? I honestly never caught someone used my photos foranything… not even a facebook/twitter display picture, until yesterday.

My point is that it is the photographer’s right to put WM attheir pictures for whatever purpose (sometimes it’s for identity purpose) butit would be better for photographers to have this liberating mind that a stolenphotos do not only mean your work of art is being taken away from you, but italso means your photos are considered beautiful, artsy, and moreover WORTHSTEALING!! Hahaha… If you can sue that person, then sue him/her, humiliatehim/her via SNS, TV breaking news, newspapers and make yourself famous. By thetime you can do it, you can be sure that your pictures are really worthstealing. Congratulation! ^^

For a photography noob like me… I think a stolen pic used asa SNS display picture would be a good start, right? Hahaha!! I took this photo on 2011, and posted it on a mini homepage of the person in the picture as a supportingmessage while he was injured and couldn’t join games for months. You can laugh/snort/chuckle on my picture because it is surely not a high quality fancy fancy picture, I won’t even mind. The thing is, the old me would be really upset knowing my picture is being used without permission. The ‘now’ me would justrelax and enjoy the fact that there is someone out there taking out my picturefrom my favorite baseball player’s homepage and putting it on her web as a displaypicture. It’s an honour, really~ LOL



This can apply to handmade drawings, edits, anything. Inthis era of internet we can never prevent things like this to happen, but wecan change our mindset. Are you ready to liberate your mind? Don’t stop the clicksof your shutter buttons just because someone steals your pictures. Be honored, instead ^^
