Did he dye his hair or it's just a light reflection?

This kind of made me wonder how Sung would look like if he dye his hair to blonde. Doesn't he have some highlight around his fringe?

By the way, Sung's birthday is coming! I know, it's still February today. But it'll be March next week, then, time to get ready for his birthday in April! What should I buy to impress?

Choco Pie and Sung

I saw people wonder about his snacking habit. I'm not sure how Sung is coping with his snack craving habit recently, but I have once read an article -- I believe it was an interview to Justin Lin -- where Justin talked about Sung having hard time w/o snacks. That was right after Sung quit smoking or something. So, he couldn't feel easy w/o anything between his fingers. I have hard similar story from my mom who used to be a heavy smoker until she got her first stroke -- don't worry, she survived and still doing fine so far -- that she felt uncomfortable if she is not holding something between her index finger and middle finger. So, she had to hold something -- like a pencil -- to calm herself down. It took her several days (or maybe weeks) until finally she feels OK without doing that.

Anyway, I must share my thought about Choco Pie. I was under the impression that it is a Japanese invention. But I found I was wrong! I know Wiki is not always reliable, but I think it is reasonably fair to believe what is written here:

I haven't done any special study on Choco Pie, but based on my experience and knowledge, it's quite popular and widely spread in many countries. In USA, I often find many boxes of Choco Pie stacked up near the cash register in H-Mart, a famous Korean grocery chain. Choco Pie also reminds me a movie called "JSA." A North Korean soldier performed by Song Kang Ho spit Choco Pie out after hearing a South Korean solider performed by Lee Byung Hun suggest him to defect DPRK, so he can enjoy Choco Pie as much as he likes. I like the scene. It's not a long conversation, but tells pretty much everything about their given situation and feeling to each other. I like the character performed by Song Kang Ho there.

So, when Sung talks about Choco Pie in this way, I suspect he meant more than a snack. It represents South Korea's economical success. I heard it's even popular among Russians. Then, Sung sees this as "yellow man's comfort food." Hmm...  once again, why you are building a wall here? I know, I'm obsessed, which is all about this blog anyway. Yes. I'm obsessed! But Sung sometimes makes me sober. I wish he has slightly different way to show who he is.

He is not George Takei. I don't think that's what he is trying to be, neither. But when he say something on his official page or twitter account, he should know who might be his audience. I'm not sure how much thought he gives prior to making this kind of statement. He has been in a little trouble when he makes similar statement in the past, that I've seen a few years ago. So, he know what he tend to say could end up with a situation he did not intend to get into. Celebrity's fate. No matter what he says, how he says, there are always some group of people who do not take it in the way intended. But if he makes people wonder why he said it, it kind of indicates that he failed. Failed to do what? I don't know. I still love him. But why he said "yellow man's comfort food,"? Is this phrase a result of deep ponder to provoke arguments, or he just said it because that's how he normally describe his favorite snack?

I know but... *sigh*...

I kept thinking if I should post what I thought about Sung's recent tweet, but I kind of decided to do. What I mean by "kind of" here is that I'm still not sure if I can make it sound fair to everyone. But let me try. This is what he said:

OK. I don't mind Asians call ourselves as "yellow people." That's not the part that got me. But when he said, "Happy Ni Hao Ma New Year" and pretended like speaking a broken English. I know I know, he doesn't meant to hurt anyone's feeling. And I am not offended. I'm not a Chinese, neither. But as a first generation in USA, I've seen quite a bit of so called "Generation Gap" between his type of people and my type of people. It does not bother me. "Bother" does not sound like a right word for me. And I know we cannot change this anyway. So, just take it or forget it. That's what I should do. But when I see that coming from Sung, I just feel a little bit sad because I'm one wall away from him. We don't have to be on the same group people to be friends or family. We all have something different. But I hope such reminder does not come from Sung all the time that makes me feel I'm not one of his group of people.

This is called over-reacting. So, don't worry about anything. As you know, I'm running out of topic, too. So, that's the biggest reason I'm writing this. We still love you like crazy, Sung!
