on May 16, 2007, i became Korean.

no, i didn't switch citizenship. my student, Jung Da-ae, "baptized" me with my new korean name, Lee Jin-Ju (pronounced "ee chin-ju").

"Lee" is supposed to be my surname, and "Jin-Ju" my first name.

Da-ae (english name jenny) says my first name supposed to mean "jewel". she was asking me what word did i thought best described me so she can find its equivalent korean word and somehow make it my korean name, but i was too shy to tell her that it's "future mother of joo ji hoon's kids". or "goddess". she was suggesting "beautiful" but i said, anubeeeeh *blushes* nakakahiya! LOL. but i can always change my name later, couldn't i? hahaha!

'course i spent like 700 years writing my korean name (in windows paint) -- i couldn't draw a tight circle or a straight line even if my life depended on it.

anyway, thank you Da-ae for giving me my new name. i love it. kamsahamnida.

now about other things...

what i'm quite excited about the these days: Pirates of the Carribean At World's End.

woohooo, can't wait to see johnny depp - my first love, and oh my, chow-yun fat is there, so hurray for asians! (i heard that korean superstar Rain will also be making his first foray into hollywood with the movie Speedracer)

Chow Yun-Fat as Captain Sao Feng, Geoffrey Rush as Captain Barbossa and Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow in Walt Disney Pictures' Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End - 2007

okay, talking about movies, i was able to watch some korean movies of the comedy genre over the past week, one of my recent favorites: Too Beautiful to Lie starring Kim Ha Neul (another of my favorite korean actresses) and Kang Dong Won (i kras, i kras). super funny talaga sya, i was laughing my a$$ off at 3am in the morning watching this movie. KHN and KDW are excellent in this movie. i think this is KDW's earlier movies when he was just a rising star in korea, but grabe, his facial expressions alone during the funniest moments in the film super matatawa ka, and at the same time you'll go aaaawwww i waaaaannnaa give you a huggggg!!! he is so cute you can't help but love him to pieces. if you really want to see KDW in his acting best though, check out his latest works like Temptation of Wolves or Our Happy Time -- these films i heard, were his best. Kim ha neul of course, is a great actress -- she'd make you laugh and cry in this one. if you like her, don't miss out on her other films like Ditto (my personal favorite) and My Tutor Friend -- you're not going to regret it. =)
