Filming for Arirang TV Program

Thanks to Hyunwoo Sun I got the chance to be filmed for an Arirang TV program called “Today’s Blog”.  I spent the entire day today filming–minus the two hours that I had a Korean exam (oh my god we’re not going to talk about that hahaha).  I think the program is only about 5 minutes long, but we shot SO much footage!!  I can’t imagine how much footage was used for Lord of the Rings….that movie is friggen LONG!

Anyways.  My episode is going to be all about Korean Pop Idols.  I was kind of worried about doing this topic because I’m not the best fan in the world.  I don’t buy all the CDs and posters (I would if I wasn’t jobless T.T), I don’t know the names of all the members of all the groups, I haven’t memorized all of the lyrics, and I thought a group of Super Junior fans was “Elves” not ‘”E.L.F.’s”.  Oops.  Sorry Anneka >.<  However, I think I did OK!  With a little fudging here and there (like stealing Anneka’s posters to decorate my room) we made it look like I was a more of a K-pop addict than I am…and I’m already a crazy fan, so u can only imagine! haha.

I met the PD (producer) and camera man at COEX mall just before 10.  They ran through with me again what they wanted to film me doing while we waited for the mall to open at 10:30.  The first part of our filming was to take place at Evan Records.

AKARAKA 2010

Thursday May 13th marked the end of the May festivities at Yonsei.  The big ending event was AKARAKA (which I gave some facts about in my last blog).  I went with the Mentors Club group which meant that I was a VIP.  We were supposed to meet with the club at 11am, however I didn’t show up until after 3pm because I didn’t want to miss my morning classes (I had a midterm due).  A friend called me to tell me where I needed to go and when she said VIP I pictured comfy seats in a less crazy section of the amphitheater.  WRONG.  VIP meant we were the ones standing right in front of the stage!  Yea, we had to stand for 7 hours, my feet are still hurting, but it was SO worth it!
