There was a cocktail party held at the Dolce & Gabbana specialty shop in Cheongdam-dong yesterday (11/8) to celebrate the world-class designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s first visit to Seoul.

SeungGi was reported to be one of the top stars attending the cocktail party. Unfortunately, there aren’t any press photos (yet).

    did the ratings increase?

  2. Whenever I read news and stories about the life of the people in the entertainment industry, that is to say the drama/film stars, singers and entertainers, I cannot avoid seeing what the mass media eagerly portrays – the glitz and glamour, the sheen and glitter of their life in the public eye, attending one glittering event after another; cocktail parties where the invite list consists of a veritable Whos Who of the industry, never-ending rounds of local and international movie festivals, VIP movie premieres, and countless other events such as fan signings/meetings and photoshoots, etc, with the camera lenses and video lenses following and capturing their every more – that I cannot but feel that these people live in a world so very different from mine that I am amazed that we are even on the same planet. 😉

    As a medical professional and educator, the nearest I ever came to being in the same space with people from the entertainment industry is when I attend an official corporate or government event that features any of the actors/singers as invited guests or guests-of-honour or the MC. Even then, I have never spoken more than a few words with any of the actors/singers, be they local or international stars and have never asked for their autograph or requested to take a photo with them because I have never felt the slightest urge or interest to do any of that. I guess you could say I am one of the people least star-struck in the presence of the so-called ‘stars’. 😉

    And I am one of the people who couldn’t care less about brand names when it comes to buying stuff I need. I do value quality in the stuff that I purchase and use but I have never been fixated on following any particular brand and thus have never once in my life attended any parties for any branded product and I suspect I never will, simply because it does hold any appeal to me. And so once again, I find myself so detached from the life of people such as Lee Seung Gi, who is considered ‘a top star’ and what they do in their daily lives. 😉

    And so, what am I trying to say with that long-winded reflection? Hehehe…
    What I am trying to say is how wondrously different, diverse and separate our lives/worlds can be even though we inhabit the same home/world, the planet Earth, and we can co-exist so well for so long, and when our separate worlds meet/collide/converge either for a short or long duration, we can either be enriched by the experience or otherwise. And speaking from personal experience, having known about a ‘top star’ like Lee Seung Gi from the little bit of news I obtained from the mass media, especially the Internet, I find it immensely fascinating to learn about the human psyche and human condition from knowing about people in the entertainment industry. I believe I have gained invaluable insights into the psychology of the human mind and spirit from the various manifestations of the mind, heart and motivation of the fanatical followers of ‘stars of the entertainment industry’ that have helped me immeasurably in my vocation and calling as a criminal psychologist and educator of youth. The world is indeed AWESOME, the catchphrase of the BBC Knowledge Channel on cable that I am a fan of. 😉

    What is wrong with the world nowadays? I can understand people commenting as ‘anonymous’ to save the trouble of signing in and etc. But why do some people enjoy hiding behind the anonymity and proxy ip addresses to be offensive?! Of course, it’s not just some ‘anonymous’ people, since we’re all anonymous online, in a way. Why can’t people try to behave with civility towards one another online?

    It reminds me of a piece I heard on NPR the other day. So just for your reading pleasure: http://www.kqed.org/a/perspectives/R201111150735

  4. Tryp, please accept my sincerest and humblest apologies for the part that I played in creating this unpleasant and unhappy air in your wonderful blog. I have enormous respect for you and I feel really bad should I have unintentionally caused you grief by the exchange of words between the ‘Anonymous’ and myself.

    Please also accept my deepest and sincerest appreciation for your voice of reason in the midst of all the madness that is created by humans in this world that is sadly being spread in your happy blog. I truly appreciate your kindness and generosity of spirit. God bless you always, Tryp! 😉

      I’m sure you are. But could I please remind you that this is a Lee Seung Gi fan blog? I’ve never seen you leaving any SeungGi-related comments before, and now all of a sudden, you show up to pick a fight with real SeungGi fans? What’s your real intentions here?
