Lee Joon writes a letter to Oh Yeon Seo on ‘We Got Married’

Posted: 03 Nov 2012 09:05 PM PDT

MBLAQ‘s Lee Joon surprised his on-screen wife Oh Yeon Seo with a sweet handwritten letter.

On the November 3rd broadcast of MBC‘s ‘We Got Married‘, the couple enjoyed a trip to the sea, where they experienced a not so successful sea fishing experience, and ended their day having a seafood dinner.

During the meal, Lee Joon got up to find some water for Oh Yeon Seo, but when he returned, he had a surprise in store for her as he had secretly written a letter for her during his quest to go find water.

His letter read:

My… Haetnim…
Hi. It’s me, Chang Sun.
You were taken aback because we left on a trip so suddenly today right?
I did it because I wanted you to be touched. I’m sorry for my poor handwriting and for writing it on this A4 size paper when this is my first letter to you.
I think if you felt happy today, it’d make me happy too. Please look forward to the other ways I might surprise you.

Despite the sloppy writing and the fact that it was written on the back of a scrap piece of paper, Oh Yeon Seo was visibly touched and even remarked that she was going to put it up next to her bed. When asked what she thought of their trip during the interview later, Oh Yeon Seo answered, “I think we became much closer after that trip and I feel like we really got to know each other more.”

Posted: 03 Nov 2012 08:02 PM PDT

JYJ‘s Jaejoong recently spent an enjoyable time with 4,000 fans in Jakarta, Indonesia despite a bad cold that left him hardly able to speak.

Due to a cold he was suffering, it’s been reported that he was unable to attend the press conference he had originally planned on holding. However, despite not feeling well and his throat being in bad shape, the singer showed his fighting spirit and his dedication to his fans as he insisted on holding the fan meeting as scheduled.

C-JeS Entertainment revealed, “A day before leaving for Indonesia, Kim Jaejoong had caught a cold that affected his throat and was advised by the doctor to get rest. Thus, we discussed cancelling or postponing the event, but Jaejoong insisted on meeting with fans who had been waiting for him for a long time.”

Although he was in a state where he could hardly speak, Jaejoong attended the fan meeting held on the 3rd at Mata Elang International Stadium, and was able to communicate with fans through ‘text talk’ and also hand wrote a letter to his fans which was read and translated by the host of the event, touching the hearts of fans.

As he couldn’t sing for his fans, he shook hands with all the fans in attendance and took photos with them to commemorate the occasion.

The singer stated through his hand written letter, “I feel so bad that I’m not sure what to say. I pondered [on this event] due to the bad condition of my throat because of a bad cold. However, I thought that I should create memories up close with everyone. Indonesia is a place that we haven’t been able to visit often, so I’m thankful that even from far away many of you show me and JYJ so much love. I think I am such a blessed and happy person to be sitting here.”

C-JeS assured fans not to worry as they stated, “As soon as Jaejoong gets back to Korea, we’ll be making sure he gets plenty of rest to allow for recovery.”

The singer will be concluding his Asia fan meeting tour with the last event in Vietnam on the 10th.
