[20150502] Sneak Peek Into Baek Geun Woo’s Picturesquely Warm and Cozy Restaurant

Earlier today, a blogger in Naver who goes by the name of Jeju Gyuri (제주 규리) shared several photos of the filming set of Baek Geun Woo’s Warm and Cozy restaurant. My oh my.. The set is simply breathtaking. It’s warm and does look super cozy.

During the blogger’s visit, Yoo Yeon Seok was present on the set with co-star B1A4’s Jin Young. Kang Sora is said to had come later that night. She wrote that she is happy and satisfied to have Yoo Yeon Seok signed for her during the break although she couldn’t take a picture together with him (which she jokingly admitted that her face will look bigger than his).

From the post, we also learned that the probability of two sets being used for the drama filming. The first one is the Bomnal Cafe which appeared in the first trailer as the exterior set of the restaurant. Bomnal Cafe itself is a real cafe located in Jeju Island by the sea. For the shooting purpose, its name plaque has been replaced by the signature “warm and cozy” restaurant logo.

Meanwhile, it appears that the production team uses an entirely different set for the restaurant’s interior. The interior set is said to be so beautiful that it can be made into a real cafe business. The blogger added later on that the picturesque warm and cozy restaurant in the beautiful Jeju will be perfect for the youth love story of a man and a woman.

Start your count down YeoNizens (if you haven’t by now ^o^), Chef Baek Geun Woo’s warm and cozy restaurant might swept off your feet the moment you see it on your screen in 11 days time. The drama will air on 13 May 2015 from 22.00 KST.

Dear Clarisonic

Dear Clarisonic Korea,

Six months ago I saw your counter at a department store in Orchard Road (Singapore). The staff was very patient with me in explaining your product and its benefits. I thought then that a sonic brush to wash your face was cool. However, I declined her offer as I believed that even the cheapest model was still a bit too high for me.

Reply 1994 ended before we ushered in the new year- 2014 and my love for Yoo Yeon Seok had never dissipated; in fact, it had grown even more stronger. Early January, we got news that he would be one of the endorsers of your product in Korea. I happened to drop by that counter again and said hi to the lady. The products now looked more inviting and were pulling me in. Hmmm… maybe I should get just a Mia and it would do. Yet still, I didn’t buy any because I was hoping that maybe, if I wait a little longer I would get to see Yeon Seok’s face in that counter and they’d give me something as a fan.

The CF came out in Korea and there was still no change in that “counter”. It’s already February, and then I remembered something suddenly, that I almost smacked my head for something that was so obvious but I had not seen it. How could I have hoped that his face would pop up in Clarisonic Singapore? Internationally distributed products such as this would have its own endorser per country. Too bad for waiting then. So I came by again to that department store one February afternoon resolute on buying a Clarisonic.

Because of my love for Yoo Yeon Seok, I have bought the most expensive model available. Luckily, the limited edition version was the same price and of a colour which I am not too fond of. Otherwise, I would have bought even that.

Clarisonic Korea please add in my purchase to your sales figures and tell Clarisonic Singapore to remove it from theirs. If only I had immediate travel plans to Seoul, I would have waited and bought it from there. Though the saleslady did her job properly, sorry to say that it was not her who convincingly prodded me to buy. It was and is Yoo Yeon Seok. I’d shamelessly say that all he has to do is hold the product, and I’d scamper forward and give away my money willingly.

Thank you.

Another Yoo Yeon Seok fan with a lighter wallet

I think you owe me a poster of a very handsome Yoo Yeon Seok in a white dress shirt. Or a life size photo cardboard cutout standee wouldn’t hurt either.

On second thought, how about sending the real thing?

Now, let me check that GoodFeel.
