Kim Hyun Joong was in Manila last week! My lovely friends and I were invited to attend his press conference for The Face Shop last August 26, and I just had to say yes to this because I was a fan of Boys Over Flowers when it aired, and I rooted for Jihoo sunbae the whole time. That, plus I kind of follow K-pop too and Love Like This, Love Ya and Let Me Be The One were in my iPod’s K-pop playlist for a very long time.
A lot of people from the media asked questions about his make-up must-haves and whatnot. It still amazes me how make-up brands in Korea use male personalities for models. I remember going around the streets of Myeongdong and spotting the faces of 2PM, CN Blue, DBSK and Rain all endorsing beauty products pretty much everywhere. Only in Korea!
I couldn’t take closer pictures because I wasn’t there as a photographer, and the photos below are already the best ones in my camera… even if these absolutely do not give any justice to his glorious face. Perfect skin!
A hug for his biggest (and oldest!) fans. Look at that smile!

And of course, I went with my GGs. Coindientally, Shai and I both wore printed bottoms that day so we had to take a picture together!
