Jung II-woo visits Myanmar for a Fan Meet/ Holika Holika Event

February 22-25, 2013

On February 22nd, Jung II-woo travelled to Myanmar as part of a Holika Holika promotion/Fan Meet Event.  He took part in two events.  One at the Western Park Royal Hotel on February 22nd and one at Junction Square, on February 23rd.  100 lucky fans got to attend the hotel event but many others even from neighboring countries like Malaysia Thailand and Vietnam gathered around the hotel where the event was held trying to get a peek of Jung II-woo.  He was met with such a warm reception, that it was almost too warm security wise.

First I will post the videos and then all the photos I found.  Cr. Holika Holika, Ellen Kim (blackrose 50101, DCIlwoo and on photos.

This is a video of him inviting fans to come to the event… yes in English!

And Jung II-woo wore a traditional skirt worn by men from Myanmar (and other countries) called “Longyi.”  He wore it while visiting the Temples of the Shwedagon Pagoda Complex in Yangon at night.

I had never seen this place before!  It is unbelievable!  These photos are by Thong Do.

THIS is Thong Do’s great account of what’s there with gorgeous photos. I also found a site where you can enjoy it in 360˚ HERE.  According to them is the most visited Pagoda Temple in the world.  I can see why… it is magnificent!  You walk in barefoot… what a feeling that must be too!  Here is Jung II-woo there:

 

And this a nice composite of him there.  No luck in finding any of the individual photos.  Cr. DCILwoo.

…this last series so touching!  His beautiful hand… so full of kindness!

 

This is an article about the event:

Actor Jung Il Woo made his first visit in Myanmar!

On February 22nd, the actor visited Myanmar as a part of a promotion of a cosmetic brand that he advertises. He received a cordial welcome from enthusiastic local fans and also those who hail from neighboring countries such as Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.

Jung Il Woo became the first Korean star to visit Myanmar. The event was initially supposed to be a fan signing, but to commemorate the first visit, he decided to take photos with each of the specially selected audience members at Western Park Royal in Yangon.

A local official said, “Jung Il Woo is the first Korean star to visit Myanmar. It was hard to even just keep walking because of so many fans. We felt thankful for the care that Jung showed for the local fans.”


WITAT

I enjoy writing these posts so much!  I feel I am reliving all these amazing moments of Jung II-woo’s life with him. It’s like Harry Potter when he uses the Pensieve… but so much more pleasant!  Thank goodness!

I loved seeing and learning about the Temples of the Shwedagon Pagoda Complex in Yangon, Myanmar.  Oh!  I wish with all my heart I can visit it someday.

Today is Mother’s Day in the US, so I wish moms all over the world a peaceful good day!

Well this is already long enough, so I’ll see you in Jung II-woo’s next adventure!  Be well…
