First and foremost, I would like to apologize for changing my theme for today’s topic. As you all know, I’m an avid fan of Bae Yong Joon and there’s some hot news going around about him which I feel I have to write about urgently.
The news that Bae Yong Joon recently purchased a house for himself in Seongbuk-dong, the residential area for the rich and famous, has gained much public attention. Why? Because BYJ has never ever bought a house before, not that he couldn’t afford it but perhaps he never felt the need for it. All this while he has been leasing the houses where he has stayed in. So naturally with this move, everybody’s busy speculating that he’s going to get married soon.
It didn’t take long for the rumors to start flying on the internet that BYJ will be getting married to Lee Na-young in April. Some even suggested that they had already got married.
When I saw the articles, I was really shocked. How could BYJ do that to us, his fans, “his family” the endearing term he coined whenever he spoke of us. He distinctly made us a promise that we would be the first to know if he planned on getting married. How relieved I felt when it was denied by both parties.
Here’s the article as sourced from english.kbs.co.kr... ( English ) 2011/03/02
Bae Yong-joon and Lee Na-young NOT Getting Married
As the rumors surrounding actor Bae Yong-joon and actress Lee Na-young getting married have been getting harder to ignore, both stars' entertainment agency have spoken up. And the verdict? The rumors are groundless.
Yang Geun-hwan, a representative of KEYEAST Entertainment, reported to Star News, "The wedding rumors are groundless. This rumor circled Korea a bit in the past, and now it seems to have reached Japan. However, it's just a rumor that got out of hand; no truth to it at all". According to the recent rumors, Bae and Lee were set to get married this April.
Bae had even addressed similar rumors directly, denying them vehemently, last year. He explained that it was strange that the rumors started in the first place, because Lee played Bae's younger sister in the drama that they acted in together, "Did We Really Love".
I think there is nothing wrong if BYJ wants to get married, in fact, it’s only natural. But some people marry early in life whilst others later in life. I think it's about time he settled down with a woman whom he can love and raise a proper family. He is at the pinnacle of his life, with a string of success stories to his name. But there’s one thing still lacking in his life! Yes, what’s the use of all this vast empire of his, if he has to come home to an empty house? By empty, I do not mean devoid of material things, but not be surrounded with love showered by a loving wife and children who will wait to greet him welcome the moment he steps into the house. After a hard day’s work, the man of the house should be entitled to a bit of pampering from a loving wife, don’t you think so? He deserves to be happy, after all he has done to make us all happy.
It’s also the Korean custom that the eldest son in the family take care of his parents in their old age. I don’t know if he is the elder of the two children but he being the only son, qualifies him to be the one to take care of his parents I think.
We, his fans, must not be selfish and demand that he remain single for the rest of his life. We must stand by him, no matter whom he chooses to be the love of his life and be his wife. We only ask that the woman he marries will be an understanding person who will allow him to share a part of his life with us, his dearest fans from all over the world.
Whoever that lucky girl may be, I hope that they have dated and had the chance to discover each other. Marriage is a lifetime thing and should be given much thought and consideration before going into it. Whatever his decision, I'm sure God will be with him and He knows what is best for him. So let's wish BYJ Good Luck and God Bless.
I know many of his fans may not want him to get married...you know, fans usually tend to lose interest once their idols get married. As for me I will be happy for him, that he has found someone to share his life with for the rest of his life. I will still be his greatest fan like before. Nothing will ever change my love for him. BYJ, thank you for bringing some happiness into my life. The person who marries him will be very lucky indeed. God bless you both!
