Hello! I am back… I had a WOOnderful trip to New York and saw many new things! Learned so much too! This city is so loaded with things to do, I think this is my 9th? 10th time there? And there is always something new to discover. My mind stays buzzing with its sounds and views for days… and much inspiration too. But one thing I never miss is having to avoid running into people coming from all directions…so exhausting! I am so relieved for the space I have in Boston… and trees! How thankful I am that Boston is a pretty green city too.
So I decided to repost the beautiful images from Jung Il-woo in his 2012 New York visit when he modeled for First Look Magazine and combine them with some of the highlights of my trip to New York. Ready?
I think what I enjoyed the most on this trip was a place called “The Vessel” at Hudson Yards, a new place full of glass buildings that are still being built. This structure is the centerpiece of this place. A climbable structure that looks like a rib cage and consists of 154 interconnecting flights of stairs, with almost 2,500 individual steps and 80 landings. (Cr. footwearnews. com) It is very popular in Instagram, that’s how I found out about it. I arrived late in the afternoon in time to see the sunset from it and thus enjoyed it by day and night. I delighted in taking photos… it is a photographer’s playground!
This last photo marked a very special moment when a man proposed to his sweetheart right in this heart! Everyone cheered and clapped. Then about 5 minutes later, the heart was gone.
The photo coming up is probably my favorite… in fact I think it’s my best photo of the whole trip…
I loved walking among all the reflections and very high end buildings in Hudson Yards, but inside I wished they were somehow greener. The Earth really does not need more glass buildings… and all the smoke…
…talking about smoking… here are the ones where Jung Il-woo is smoking.. hot!
I visited 4 art related exhibits, of all these I will share a bit of one here, thought I will probably share a bit of all in Instagram…
This was “Beyond the Streets.” An exhibit about street art: Graffiti. It covered the whole New York history of the medium… it was so fascinating. I realize now how much I’m drawn to street art lately… it just seems so real to me… I love how many of these artists are self made, telling their feelings, the story of their lives and so talented! I don’t like it when it is destructive though, I like it when it tells a truth, it enlightens… So I will place a few photos in this post and the rest HERE. The exhibit was held in a huge compound in Brooklyn on the 5th and 6th floor, so the views of Manhattan from there were stunning… and it was beautiful sunny day!
Yes… that is my second best photo in this trip I believe! Just WOOw!!!
This last photo comes from the recreation of a teenager’s room and his designs… it was unbelievable! The talent! The amount of work!
Hungry for Jung Il-woo… well here he is consuming… even a newspaper!
I tried a few ‘nifty’ food on this trip… for the first time and about time!!! I had my first New York Bagel. Do you know what a bagel is? A bagel is a bread product, round like a donut. Though it was started by Jewish people in Poland, it really became what it is today in North America, particularly in New York. They boast to have the best bagels in the world. I went to a place listed as one of the best: Baz Bagel and restaurant. I had what is called a “lox and a schmear” which is cooked salmon with cream cheese. A bagel staple! My bagel was different to the usual though… it was a rainbow bagel!
That’s what they usually look like, this was mine:
Yes! It was as delicious as it was colorful! Yummmm! I loved the look of the place too… it had a 1950’s air to it even though it is only about 5 years old. I loved how it was very green… almost no plastic!!! Way to go!
Another treat I had was a Japanese ice cream. I had a red bean/green tea soft serve ice cream! It came served in a cute fish waffle cone, that had red bean in it! It was so good! I was a bit hesitant, but I decided to go for it instead of my usual which would have been a chocolate one… I’m so glad I expanded my ice cream horizon! Koreans eat sweet red beans in many of their treats.
Last but not least, I’d like to share some of the froggies I encountered on my trip there. Jung Il-woo was always with me, one of my tour guides was 1/2 Korean and I also visited Korea Town… had a delicious Ramen, in honor of my favorite character of his… you know who…Cha Chi-soo! So here he is jumping (and swimming) all over New York!
This last one was funny… I ran behind this man trying to capture this photo he walked so fast! It is now I notice the beautiful smiles of the people in front of me as they must have thought I looked funny or absolutely crazy! 🙂
Did you notice in the last two photos something? There is a dog next to the frog… that;s Awoo who is always by Ilwoo’s side! 🙂
Last for now for those hard dying fans like me… here is a double treat. The video from Jung Il-woo’s 1st Look Photo shoot and my last glance of New York City as I rode the train back to Boston in a gorgeous sunset… this trip could not have ended in a better view! I am always so thankful to the divine energy that makes my life so blessed!
New York…There is really no place like it… it holds both the best and worst of humanity and certainly the biggest melting pot in the world! My 1/2 Korean tour guide told me that in Brooklyn there is a famous block where the people who live there speak over 70 different languages! Can you imagine!!!?!!!

Talking about going places. In this moment I’m on sitting on an Amtrak train on my way to New York for a short vacation! Thus I may not be able to update as much… thank you so much for visiting! Feel free to browse 600+ posts and pages published on this site!
American news is filled with the terror of two mass shootings and 29 innocent lives taken.
Why? Because of the monster in Fantasia… do you remember him? Here let me remind you:
He heads this country and nothing but oozing hate comes from his mouth. Yet, my mind will not succumb to any of it. My eyes are wide open, keeping in check where the monster is and who it is attacking… yet my mind is free of fear. I have two angels that have helped me stay positive and believe in the beauty and perfection of god’s creations and creations of good by humans instead of this horrible negative human mirage. The first angel is Ilwoo and the second is Kay.
I’ll start with angel number 2. Kay Nielsen is a Danish illustrator who lived between 1886 and 1957. He illustrated only six books (fairy tales) as his work was interrupted by the World Wars I & II. His work is so beautiful and detailed. It was influenced by Japanese and Persian art. Yesterday, I felt so blessed and got to see the largest exhibit of his work outside of Denmark at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Seeing each illustration up close was such a delight! Gorgeous work! Here I will share a few…
By the way the Fantasia monster and its whole sequence was created by him as he worked for Disney towards the end of his life.
Now let’s move to angel number one… Ilwoo… I was doing a search and I don’t know how it happened by I ended up finding videos I had never seen in Naver… what a sweet surprise! Only one I had seen parts of before (Ilwoo in bed), posted by IG r_ilwoo. So I will place all of them here and in the places where they belong according to the dramas. Enjoy them in their full length!
Jung Il-woo (32), who finished the drama “Hatch” after completing his alternative service, got some spare time.
After receiving a diagnosis of a cerebral aneurysm in a traffic accident in 2006, he completed alternative service for social workers at Seocho Elderly Care Center. The aneurysm is called the time bomb in the body. If blood vessels swell, they may suddenly succumb. I am recovering my health, but I need a steady body care.
It was better than I thought. “For the first month I was too hard for me,” he said, “why did this happen to me,” but a month later, I decided to let go of my heart and live hard. I am very grateful for my day. “
Jeong Il-woo’s main work, which debuted for 14 years, is ‘High Kick without Roughness’. The spotlight that was poured into the debut as the best sitcom still talked about was hard at the time. “I do know that ‘high kicks’ always follow, but I did not think I wanted to take off the tag, it’s an honor to have a masterpiece, and of course, the ‘high kick’ was over and the burden was pretty big, I still want to show you, but I’m still deeply engaging in the words of Na Mun-hee and Soo-jae Lee. “
Many processes have made him more mature. After finishing ‘Hatch’ and going to the Spanish pilgrimage route, he met many people and brought a healthy idea. “I was once in my twenties and it was so good, I was looking at it again, and the timing was good.
I was amazed to hear him talking with a glass of wine. I am not much, but I felt like I was a man who had gone through a series of events. This is what a healthy mind is like.
– Was the original actor a dream?
“When I was in high school I went into the theater by accident, I played ‘Our Stolen Hero’, and I saw the taste of acting, and I auditioned for ‘High Kick’ and I was cast lucky.”
– What was your dream before that?
“I did not have a dream until I was in junior high school. I just went in and played the drama class and felt a sense of accomplishment.”
– The actor you thought was right.
“No, of course, it would be all the same in the early years of society, but I was a bit tough, too, and when I saw the public, the actor looked gorgeous, but I could not sleep or sleep, so I wanted to be an actor. The fight continued. “
– Sometimes I was hurt.
“It was when I shot ‘High Kick’, because I was not prepared for my debut and I was not able to handle it because I got a big love, so how old would it be to have been 20 years old? I feel like it, and it’s hard, but I got used to it and I want to be the one who does my best in what I’m doing. “
– How was the replacement service?
“I went to the usual thirty-two-year-old Jeong Il-woo, and I was studying English in public through public transportation.
– I felt a lot.
“It was important for me to have an alternative service time, because I was in my early 20s and I was deeply passionate about their lives, and we were able to meet a lot of people, “
– There are not many screens and ties.
“I am always greedy, I want to play, I go to college and often see it, but I did not have a relationship since the” Beautiful Sunday “in 2010. I want to participate as a good work.
– Is your health okay?
“I am getting regular checkups because of the aneurysm. I am taking a shing during shots, so I am busy and I am going to take care of my body.
– I was not resentful.
“I have learned from my illness that I have learned something important for my day, and I realize that I am sick, and the memory of the moment and the moment of looking at the world is precious. I did. “
– There have been several accidents.
“I do not want to say this, but I have a lot of accidents, and even if I do not do anything, there’s a car behind me,” he says, “but I can not help it.
– Do not you think about marriage?
“I do not know the necessity of marriage until after the substitute service but it is not these days, but there is a thought like that. I want to marry a little bit more mature because I have a part to bear. “
– I’m not going to marry the opposite of the house.
“My parents are open minded, but I do not want to do that.”
– I did not have any scandals.
(Laugh) I do not care if you go along like a tag if you do not like it, but because you do not like to hurt someone. I did everything I did. “
– There was no controversy.
“I did not do anything that could cause social controversy, I do not think I should live that way, and I always think about it. I said that I should pay my respects not to say that I made a lot of money but when I was young I had a big influence on me. How grateful is that? “
– What kind of actor do you want to be?
“I want to be an actor who has a memorable work when I remember Jung Il-woo, I want to remain an actor who can give good influence to the public, I’m trying to do more because the actor is not an official but it has many influences. I want to be an actor. “
