1.—— Story Introduction —————————————

Ggong feel high/happy on Monday because he had a good rest during weekend and he can DJ together with PSY. Especially today, he reads messages and stories happily. He made many kinds of reactions/expressions which listener wish for, like singing Happy Birthday for a Japanese listener. Her husband asked Ggong to sing for celebrating his wife’s special day. Moreover, Ggong made a sound like blowing out the candles.. hu hu hu hu…

Making steam of breath by blowing (on listener’s frozen hands) through his mic…ha ha ha ha… After he did that, he said “Arrrrrr, It’s strange. Seems like I am making a prank call as if I’m a (sexual)pervert.

He also said that he had seen some posting like “If we were to propose to him on Monday, he might say yes” at a certain fan site. He said he laughed a lot after reading it that time. Therefore, we can feel how happy he is on Mondays. (* If there is anything we want to ask Ggong to do, should we ask him on Mondays??? ^^; *)

2.—— With PSY —————————————————————————

Ggong gave PSY a T-shirt as a birthday present, so PSY came to the studio wearing it. PSY thanked Ggong and he was very satisfied with the T-shirt from Ggong, who is very thoughtful, as he is a person who hesitate to choose stuffs. Actually, PSY is too plump to fit in his size at once. Then, Ggong’s sense for clothing made PSY fit into the shirt in just one time. Moreover, the size of the T-shirt is Medium, not Large. The T-shirt made PSY look better and slimmer (hiding his pot-belly). Then Ggong said “I thought if the size suits you, this will be very nice for you. By the way, it fits your shoulder line and width, not too squarish”. After that, Ggong looking at him, spoke English…

Ggong) You’re so sexy. Oh yeah, so cool, so sexy, so hot.
psy) I appreciate that, brother!
Ggong) It’s my pleasure, man… Oh yeah…
go,go, go…. Let’s go counseling!

Text message received: ” Both of you always finish your English conversation with words “my pleasure”. I can also at least answer “my pleasure, man~”

Ggong) We want to be close to you easily because we don’t want to get aversion from you ( *meaning they want listeners to have good feeling for them.)
psy) Actually, I lived in America for 6 years. If I decide to speak English for once, I can continue to speak with “CNN” style,
so you will feel very different. But I don’t speak that way because I want to be close to you one more step. One day, if I get angry, I’m going to speak more English to you.

While they were counseling a listener’s love story:

psy ) Actually, I think our Ggong seems to have many love experiences.
Ggong) No, I don’t have that many. I have little experiences.

psy) Can you truly say that you have just a little?
Ggong) Yes, I have a little.

psy) Are you going to lie in front of listeners?
Ggong) But I really have a little…

psy) You have little experiences but you love deeply.
Ggong) Yes, I can say that way. Although I have a little experiences but it’s not a short love relationship. The shortest is for one year?

psy) oh! is it?
Ggong) Yes. one year.

psy) Then, how long is the longest relationship with your girlfriend?
Ggong) It might be about 3 years?

psy) You go out with girlfriend for a long time. humm…
Ggong) If I didn’t fail to love, we might have had a baby?

psy) Humm.. I’ve heard you have a baby… from somewhere.. ha ha ha ha…
Ggong) Ohhhhhh…! Oh my God! It’s a just a joke though, you made the joke too strong. Your joke is too excessive.

psy) This time my joke is a bit strong, isn’t it?
Ggong) Ahhh… well, just that I might not know… ha ha ha ha ha…. Ah.. I’m so sorry. We went too far for a joke.

psy) If you have a son, what do you think about the name ” 공칠” (/gongchil/ means that word pronounciation is the same as number 07)
Ggong) ME?
PSY) 공공칠 빵” (/gonggongchil bang – that means 007bbang!! *his surname (0 ), given name 공칠 (07)= like a movie “007 “)
Ggong) bang~

Counseling story from listener (ID: Ggongnim is mine) who is a high school student and she has been smoking for 5 years.
Now,she wants to stop smoking but it’s difficult.

Ggong) I stopped smoking since Jan.01.2009. It just past 11 days, but I can feel that the color of my face have brightened and my lips color is getting red. It’s not dark or dry anymore.
If we were to get rid of nicotine acid from our body, we have to stop smoking for twice the period of how long we have been smoking. Therefore, I have to stop smoking for 20 years coz I’ve been smoking for 10 years. That is, at least, if I become 50 years old, I’ll be as healthy as non smoker.
So, if you don’t want to stop, keep smoking continuously. If you want to stop, stop smoking immediately!!

psy ) Yes,, you end it strongly and clearly. You’re good!!
But I’ll keep smoking a little longer.^^ ha ha ha ha…. See you next week~

Ggong read message about cooking

Ggong) I’m not particular about food. I like to eat all kind of food. I think the course/process of cooking is awesome because we can eat yummy food through the cooking. I want to have the right touch at cooking and learn how to cook well. I’m really good at cooking Kimchi Fried Rice.

While discussing about marriage after introducing a story about a German children couple – they were 6 and 7 years old then and they wanted to go to a warm place in Africa to have their wedding ceremony secretly without their parents’ knowing…

Soonmok) Gong Yoo ssi! Have you ever thought about marriage when you were a kid?
Ggong) I don’t remember whether I thought about marriage or not.

soonmok) I did, when I was in elementary school.
Ggong) Ohhh…! You remind me of my kindergarten days.

Ggong) I thought I had to marry a girl when I was in kindergarten. I love her and my mother was also in good relationship with her mother. Around the time when I graduated from kindergarten, there was a case I had to dress up, so I wore children jacket with bow tie and had short hair cut with fringe covering my forehead. It was a symbol of nobleness. ^^
narae) Yes, right. It’s the symbol of being rich. Ahh.. you surely look pretty.

Ggong) Actually, now that I come to think of it, well… I wanted to dress up that way during that time. But I didn’t have the jacket, so I borrowed it from a brother who lived next to my house. Therefore, when I wore it, brother’s jacket was too big for me because he was an elementary student. I didn’t want to put on outfit such as jumper or something like usual, and teased my mother to buy me a jacket. I only have an older sister, that’s why I don’t have the jacket. So, the elementary brother’s jacket was very big… Moreover, it’s a checkered stripe jacket, so it looks bigger for me. But I wore it and went there boldly because I had a girl’s love. The girl came and she was also beautifully dressed. I still remember that she was cute, her face was fair, she had truly pretty curly and thin hair, she was a little tiny and frail girl.. hu hu hu…

Angelie’s comment: Myself and Jessie thought that the “image” YOO trying to explain in his story is pretty similar to this pic. Too bad it wasn’t the little girl he love who is standing next to him.

soonmok) What is her name?
Ggong) Ahh… I still remember.. her name is Moon Hyun Kyeong…

soonmok) Oh! Moon Hyun Kyeong ssi..
Ggong) Moon Hyun Kyeong ssi.. I still cannot forget that name.. When I was in the beginning of my debut, I wanted to find the girl on the TV show (TVLove) which help stars to find someone they want to look for, but I found other girl because the TV staff wasn’t able to contact her (Hyun Kyeong), so I couldn’t locate her, not sure whether she went abroad or not.

soonmok) I am very sorry to hear that.
Well, please do say some words because she might be listening to the radio now..
Ggong) Ah… (* But Ggong immediately said it before soon mok finish asking, as if ggong was waiting for the chance all this while, kekeke… *)
“Hyun Kyeong ah~~~~~~, ha ha ha… Moon Hyun Kyeong ssi! he he he… I feel awkward. I don’t know where you are living, you might have got married or you could be a mom of kids since we are of the same age. I feel strange that I address you as Hyun Kyeong Ssi. Although it was almost 25 years ago, I can remember you clearly… well… hmmm… I don’t know what to say.. Have you been doing well? Are you married?.. hahahahaha…Are you enjoying good health? Very glad that I can say hello to you in this way… Belated Happy New Year. Take care of yourself!

soonmok) Well, If you listen to the radio, please leave a message at his homepage.
Ggong) Ahhh… you (Soon Mok) don’t have to do that… Just I want to have it as a memory, you don’t have to…

While they have been talking another story for a long time, Ggong suddenly said:

Ggong) Ohhhh! One more thing come to my mind… “When I was in kindergarten, if people ask me to give Hyun Kyeong a kiss, I could kiss her on the mouth.”

narae) How come you are still telling us Hyun Kyeong Ssi story suddenly???
Ggong) Ha ha ha ha ha… Suddenly the story hit me…
Once our mother or teacher tell us to kiss each other, we kissed happily in front of them, naturally ignoring them I guess…

Ggong) Ha ha ha ha…. Let’s listen to a song…
narae) Ha ha ha ha ha ha… Gong Yoo ssi, you give us big laugh again too.

Ggong) Ahhhh… So sorry… let’s listen.. Brown Eyed Girls sings,
“Hyun Kyeong ah!! Listen to a song ‘Good Day’ …” (* with very tender and pretty voice *)

On the side note, according to Jessie, on the 1-Dec show, Gong Yoo mentioned about that teacher (in the picture above) while talking about kindi teacher and memorable skinship… Her name is Park Soon Ho. He still remember her name, her figure and her warm heart as well. He managed to keep in touch with her after his debut. She’s now over 50 years old.

They talk about a movie “Singles” in the Jung Yup’s movies OST session..

jungyup) What was your dream when you were 19 years old?
Ggong) I thought I don’t have to repeat the college entrance at least. That was my dream when I was 19 years old. The grade I got wasn’t as expected. Of course I didn’t study hard as well. I thought it’s not worth to spend time and money to prepare for exam again. That’s why I won’t go to a college. I thought It’s better not to go to college rather than I cannot go to the college I want to go to. I told my parents that I will earn the money because I have no physical defects in my child’s mind. (* means that ggong think he is healthy, so there’s no problem for him to earn the money not only doing office job but physically hard job as well)
Well, my mom, dad and grandmother persuade me to go to college then, so I end up repeating the college entrance exam after all. I started late in May after I drop out willingly.

jungyup) In Korea, all dreams for these 19 and 20 years old are extremely limited to college entrance exam only…
That’s a reality in our country.
Then, what was your dream when you were 27 years old? Was that time you were very popular? You were a big hit..?
Ggong) The words are funny. It doesn’t matter whether it is popular or not. I wanted to be an actor when I was 27 years old.

jungyup) Now that you are already an actor?
Ggong) Now, I also want to be an actor…

jungyup) Wow…You are cool.
Ggong) Now I do too. It’s the same. I still want to be an actor.

jungyup) Yes.. I think music and actor/acting seems to be one-sided love for me and Gong Yoo ssi. It’s like the thing we always want to make it ours, but it doesn’t become ours?

Soonmok teased Ggong about his picture taken in Australia;

soonmok) Gong yoo ssi! I think you like to take a picture holding a surfing board… just holding the board, not surfing. kekeke…
Ggong) You are teasing me about that picture taken in Australia when I was filming OFD. I only act as if I did surfing in that picture. At that time, my body looks good. It was stretchable, strong and tough. But now it is not. My muscle became friable (easily crumbled) and out of shape. So, I started to keep fit again in the camp these days with you soonmok.

soonmok) Yeah… You have been working very hard these days keeping your body fit. When I’m beside you, I can see that your body looks sexy and even shiny. ke ke ke..

…. Complete ….

— From Thursday’s session of “Shall we share?” —

Ggong read message: “Green-Teabag’s mask will help control pimples”.

Ggong) The other day I had three pimples on my cheeks. Now, one more pimple broke out on my face. Well, I’m gonna get “The Big Dipper/The Plow” constellation soon. (* Meaning he will get more pimples on his face)
I’m too old to revitalize my skin. Therefore, my revitalization is slow. kekeke… Yes. in fact, good skin is no use to a soldier.

— Tearliner brought singer Taroo to his “Indie Music World” session —

While discussing about:
1. Whether music or acting could become a main job or not?

Ggong) When I was a middle school student, I wanted to be a “copywriter” as my future job, drafting details of my plan like what subject should I major in, which company should I work at… at that time that kind of job was not known well to middle school student. ( * Because other students didn’t draft details of their plan like him.)
But when I was in high school, I had to give up because my grade was not good. Well, now.. it’s different from my goal, but acting is also similar type of work like a copywriter. Only I am inside of camera, not outside of it. In fact, I wanted to look into something from outside the camera, not in the inside.

T.liner) It’s not your study grades, your appearance didn’t leave you as you become a copywriter, huh?
Ggong) ha…You finish it all clearly. hahaha!!

2. Getting to know about myself whom I didn’t even know while acting…

Ggong) There are times when I’m surprised with myself. It’s not because I acted very well… There are also times when I get out of/deviate from the category of my character. I’m a little embarrassed when I have wide spectrum of acting which is beyond my expectation. It’s a new feeling of exhilaration when I get to act as something I’m not, in front of the camera.

3. How to overcome our slump/down moment

Taroo) I tend to listen to my first singing to remind myself during that time.
T.liner) I don’t have any particular time which I feel down because I didn’t shine as a musician as I only have shallow compositional technique… Otherwise, I feel from the part/inside of mentality, not outward. To me, I can say I feel slump/down when I cannot sublimate my depression in music.
Ggong) That’s the art!

T.liner) I watched a documentary on TV about how Beethoven, who is sentimental and had a fussy temper, had died. “Lead” was found in his hair exceeding 200% compare to normal people. They said if someone suffer from lead poisoning, he will become deaf, can be very fussy, very sensitive and very distinguished in music and art. I think he had music consuming his life, thus it seems like it’s right that person who do “art” tend to be more sensitive and more emotional.
Ggong) In talking, people call together music or acting as “art”. People do not understand the whole “art” thing.

Taroo,T.liner) You look “꽁” introverted in mind. You seem like you’re not satisfied with something.
Ggong) When I was pure and simple, I wanted people to appreciate it first by themselves, like “How come people don’t understand or recognize it?” This is not good though. Now, I get to give up because I had a long social life and I live in reality. This is also an excuse after all though. My saying from my mouth is, if I speak much more gracefully, “Yeah, well, if you don’t like, then, please go.” or “Come if you like”. Although I do not stop people or welcome those who like me, I think I don’t want to have them sit down in front of me. That’s why “If you don’t like, please go”. However, I don’t think they can speak ill of me than is necessary and I think they absolutely will not speak a word that they must not say. Even though some people might tell me that I am unlike professional actor, I don’t think that way.. Maybe it’s also because that I’m lacking in social life.
I think it is right that I have to be first most comfortable expressing something and if I do “art” that I can show. So, I guess that habit that runs deep gradually.

T.liner) Perhaps others will be the same..?
Ggong) Sometimes I have a feeling that I’m afraid of relationship between people and people. If it is severe, I will be caught in unsocialableness. Seriously, I want to run away and hide from the people. I guess all those who do art feel the same…
T.liner) Therefore, I feel pity for them and always think I won’t show myself on TV or the press. I am not able to adopt the way of life well… hahaha…

Ggong) By the way, there are people who take it very well. Looking at them, it’s surprising! I can pretend to follow it well, but behind it, my heart becomes heavy. That’s why I’m always in trouble alone.
T.liner) Since I’m just beside Gong Yoo ssi, when I look at him, I think it seems like he’s that way.

Ggong) Well, I guess it is the merits and demerits of an artist. I love the sensitivity I have for acting, although it is difficult for me to have a social life.

T.liner,Taroo) Yes, that’s right…
Ggong) I don’t know what to do, so I hide out somewhere. Phew… it’s getting serious. Let’s listen to a song by Tearliner..^^
