Project Lee Jun Ki | Virgin Snow.

Oh yes, his name finally showed up on my blog again! With all these giveaways, sponsor spotlights and product reviews going on in my blog, I didn't even had the chance to spazz about Deucer and Joongi's promotional activities in Japan.

Coming Back, March 16-20, 2012.
Joongi-ssi, if you're reading this (and I hope you are!), mianhe. Chongmal mianhe. I may not be writing about you as often as before, but that doesn't mean I'm not keeping tabs with what you're doing. I'm even trying to figure out the ropes of Weibo, just to fulfill your birthday wish.

Anyway, on with this post.
This came in the mail about two weeks ago.

Latest addition to my Joongi filmography! :)
My very own DVD copy of Virgin Snow (insert fangirl screams here) - Lee Jun Ki and Japanese actress Aoi Miyazaki's film from way back 2007.  This is the limited edition Korea version, which I got from where else but YesAsia. It's a rare find; so rare that the moment I checked my order out, the Korea version ran out of stock. That's what I call 'The Last of the Mohicans'.

Virgin Snow (Hatsuyuki no koi in Japan) is the story of Min (played by Jun Ki), a Korean boy who migrates to Japan because of his father's work, and Nanae (played by Aoi), an aspiring painter who goes to the same school as Min. It was love at first sight for Min, and despite the language barrier (and awkward conversations), a warm friendship blossomed between the two.

Oh, Min! :)
The plot thickens when Min had to fly back to Korea because of his ailing grandmother, without Nanae even knowing. As soon as his grandmother recuperates, Min returns to Japan with hopes of rekindling his relationship with Nanae. Unfortunately, Nanae was nowhere to be found.

The DVD. 
Min's frantic search for Nanae was futile. He returned to Korea empty-handed and broken-hearted (I really hate it when girls make my Joongi cry, lol.).

The back panel.
Okay, okay, I won't spill the beans anymore. If you're a Joongi fan, you better watch this movie for yourself. The plot is pretty simple - a no-brainer, actually - but that's what I love about this film. Its simplicity makes it truly heartwarming.

But then again, I could be biased because it's Lee Jun Ki. Haha! :)

Sharing with Happiness Is and Wednesday Whites.

L guess I am terribly out of the loop as I have not heard of Joongi. Glad you enjoyed it!

I watched this!!! hahahha mainly because I adore miyazaki aoi!!! hahaahha Loved this story. I agree the plot is very simple but as they say, there's beauty in simplicity. Sometimes, a story doesn't need a lot of drama to make it beautiful. :) You should watch Tada Kimi Wo Aishteru too :P

Hmm I haven't heard of this either but I do no know that the two countries (Japan and Korea) aren't exactly friendly with each other. So the story/movie might have helped relieve some of that tension.
