Oh Ji Ho, out and about...

Our diligent Hong Kong reporter, A. Ho sends this:

Oh Ji Ho in Hong Kong for Diesel Store opening

‘This is my fourth visit to Hong Kong. I’ll stay for 3 days to attend the Diesel events…. There may not be time for sightseeing,’ said Oh Ji Ho in English.

The Korean actor of Fantasy Couple, Oh Ji Ho, arrived in Hong Kong on Tuesday (27 May) morning. He is in town to attend the star-studded grand opening party of Diesel’s high profile Hong Kong flagship store. Diesel is an Italian casual clothing brand which sets sights on hip baby boomer and ageing fashionistas amid a shrinking youth market. Last month, Diesel unveiled a new store in Tokyo, its biggest in Asia.

Oh came to Hong Kong with his two assistants. Two body guards sent by the sponsoring company and staff of the public relations agency were at the airport to greet him. Oh, in casual clothes, smiled and waved at the reporters though there were just few. He was vibrant and amiable even though his fans were nowhere to be seen.

Oh has gained popularity in Hong Kong after Fantasy Couple was aired last year. He has a huge following since a local paid TV station showed his other project, ‘Get Karl! Oh Soo Jung’, earlier this year. The media dub him ‘Si-lai Killer’ as he is particularly attractive to middle aged married women.

Thank you A., for this excellent piece of news, as always, I am in your debt.

Cyworld's Back In Town!

Oh Ji Ho's Cyworld Homepage is back, up and running. It has a new look, but it's the same Zio.

His comments, which are sometimes very funny, are in Korean only. The tabs are now labeled in English, making the site easier to navigate.

There are many photos there to enjoy. Hop to it:

He has moved on to a new management agency, Heavenly Star Entertainment. There is a new address, which is permanantly posted to your right.

This is it for quick reference now.

Mr. Oh Ji Ho
Heavenly Star Entertainemnt
35-7 Nonhyun-dong,
Kangnam-gu,Seoul 135-815,South Korea

The address will always be posted in the sidebar, just above "About Me".

It would be nice of you to send him a note wishing him well with his new management agency.

Changes are always expensive in some way. Starting up again is not easy, so let's make an effort on his behalf, and let him know we're out here, standing by him, and standing for him.

For some time posting here was suspended in respect for Myanmar and China as we joined in the sadness felt by so many.

But as nations rebuild and try to regain normalcy, it is time to resume here also. The sadness still hangs in the air, but you come here for diversion, and I feel the obligation to attempt to provide it.

Here's a bit of romance.

A Message From A. Ho - Hong Kong

Thank you very much for posting a blog entry on the China quake and thinking of the quake victims.

Tens of thousands of people lost their lives in the 7.9-magnitude quake in Sichuan, China. The death toll is rocketing.

Just weeks ago, Myanmar, China’s neighouring country, was hit by a cyclone and a large number of survivors are desperate for relief aid.

In Hong Kong, people from all walks of life have pitched in to help the quake victims in Sichuan. Large amount of donations comes from business tycoons while other people do whatever they can to show their support to their countrymen.

May I appeal to the readers of this blog to lend a helping hand to those who were struck by the natural disasters? Keep the victims and the rescue workers in your prayer. Send donations to the charitable organizations which are organizing relief aid to China and Myanmar.

There is an old Chinese saying that goes like this, “Giving is happier than receiving”.

A. Ho
Hong Kong, China

I wish to tell my Chinese readers I am very sorry for the terrible tragedy that has struck China.

I have the selfish hope you do not have people in the region that was hit. But then, China is your ancestral home. The people are your people, and you will feel pain and sadness no matter where you live.

All I can give you is my heart.

I give it to you completely.

Words feel so hollow.

In sadness shared,

It is with growing sadness and horror I read the statistics on the loss suffered by the people of Myanmar.

Please donate to an organization of your choice; one you believe is legitimate, and not self-serving, earmarking the money for Myanmar relief.

The devastation there is unbearable, yet the people will try to do the best they can to go on with their lives.

Such is the human spirit.

Please think of these people as you go about the business of your everyday life, and send a heartfelt wish to what ever you believe in, for the wellbeing of the survivors.

Thank you.
