So, I went to Saketini, but...

I finally got this special opportunity to visit Saketini in Brentwood, CA, hoping that I can feel some connection to Sung. But! All I found there is that Sung has sold this business to someone else and no longer involved. :(  Oh well. I guess that explains why I do not see the website for the restaurant any more. So, the present I intended to leave there remained in my handback throughout my trip. I guess I just need to send it to his management office later.

Anyway, it's not easy to bump into a movie start even around Hollywood, I suppose. So, I must understand. I was not that disappointed because I kind of expected this. But it was still good to have a lunch there. And it was very good. I was the only customer there dining in the restaurant though I saw several people came to the restaurant to pick up their order that they probably ordered on line.

The waiter was kind enough for me to find out what's up with Sung. According to him, Sung has bought another restaurant in Santa Monica called "Sugerfish." Since I was going to hang out in Santa Monica in that afternoon, I decided to have my dinner there. It's close to my hotel, too. But the funny thing is, the host in Sugerfish said he has no idea what I am talking about. But he said, there are many people who invest to this business and it is possible that Sung maybe one of them. Hmm.. OK. After all, I guess it's not a good manner to try getting connected to an actor like this as a fan. But I thought it's not unusual that some movie stars running restaurant business, and if you are lucky enough, you may encounter your start there. So, I hope what I'm doing does not sound like sick.

Don't worry. I had several other things to do while I was in LA besides chasing Sung's shadow. I had a pretty good time there. I will find another chance to see him in person in the future.

Hi Yuri~

Exactly. I was hoping to get a chance to bump into Sung again for years and finally realized that this is not the place any more! :(

But I'll try attending film festivals and other events where Sung may show up. :)
