Barefoot Friends Ep 2 – The Hyun Joong That I See…

29 Apr

Yesterday’s episode was very nice. Of course everything I’ll say is biased because I like this man, but as a viewer, I really felt that Ep2 of Barefoot Friends is really nice.

As I tweeted yesterday after watching the show, this episode left me many touching moments, be it Jong Shin’s team or Ho Dong’s team. Of course, most of it has to go to the skills of editing and putting scenes together, but it’s the things that the cast went through which lead them to their after thoughts of experiencing a day of life as a local/normal being that really sent bots of warmth into my heart.

We, are normal beings. In our eyes, some might yearn for the life of a star, like Hyun Joong. But you really need a lot a lot of perseverance and effort to be at where he is, or even to start of with~ Whereas for them, after experiencing a day as a normal being, they appreciate what they have and that they are doing what they like, and feels it’s tough life being a normal being.

With this episode 2, we have better understanding how this variety show will be like. But I also asked this question, is this concept going to be repetitive? Just that it will be filmed in different locations? If so, very frankly, it may not last. I would hope to see every filming there’ll be new concept or theme where the cast can experience more things and through these, they show their other sides that viewers would hope to see.

Of course, this is just the 2nd episode, we need to watch further to see how each filming will end up to be like. Currently the cast is filming in Indonesia, no idea what concept and mission they have for this trip, but let’s keep anticipating on.^^

So far, comments about Hyun Joong have been positive. Many non-fans found another side of him which they don’t see. His speech, his actions are so funny and unlike the image they always perceived of him as a big star. It’s really good. They may not become his fans at the end of the day, but they will have good impression to start with.

In the eyes of non-fans, maybe you’ll feel that Hyun Joong is trying hard at times, to be funny. But I assure you, he is not. He is naturally cute, funny, 4D, playful n he can really play very hard, you just need to slowly discover. And I am very happy to say I’ve discovered this side of him, which is why I’m a fan of him now. Yay!

As for the Hyun Joong in my eyes, I will share the Hyun Joong that I saw in this episode^^

(*warning! It may be very boring because I’m not good at using beautiful words to describe!!)

The Hyun Joong that is like a painting…

…with no stage make-up, no dazzling lights and fancy clothing. Yet he emits the glow naturally.

The Hyun Joong that is like a kid yearning for ice cream…

…for someone who could easily afford a shop full of ice-creams, he hold it back and continues to work for money to pay for his meal instead.

The Hyun Joong that is listening attentively…

…serious in whatever he does, he take it to his stride with pride.

The Hyun Joong who is troubled over doing aegyo…

…he completed it and earned laughter and applause.

The Hyun Joong who laughs heartily when Ho Dong was being slapped…

The Hyun Joong who relentlessly do whatever the auntie told him too…

…even auntie can’t resist his charm. kkkkkk

The Hyun Joong who quietly does he share of work to earn money…

…you don’t know what is he thinking about or feeling at that point of time. Nobody knows.

The Hyun Joong who has deep thoughts and appreciation of this experience living as a normal being…

…although the cast and crew are going through hardships to provide laughter to viewers, it has helped everyone to grow better and appreciate what they have in life now. It is a good lesson learnt for everyone.

This side of Hyun Joong, many of us knew. He has deep thoughts, he thinks a lot. But now it lets even more people, non-fans to understand a different side of him, not the always shining and handsome side of him. Not the Hallyu Star that is always standing on stage and giving performances for thousands and thousands of fans in a concert hall. But a down-to-earth and boy-next-door entertainer who has a fresh side unseen~^^

The Hyun Joong who is getting more and more muscular and manly…

…just…don’t overdo it.

The Hyun Joong that always have difficulty waking up…

…but now we see he can do it!

The Hyun Joong who can freshen up at any condition…

…even at places where conditions are so much different compared to the usual washroom or changing room that a star should be using.

The Hyun Joong that is feeling sad to part…

…parting is always the hardest, despite spending just a night at a place he don’t even know of, with people he can’t communicate properly with. We see the soft side of a star.

The Hyun Joong bargaining for extra ingredients at no increased of price…

…’give us egg’ a Hallyu star says. kkkkkkk would you have expected at all? Maybe not, right? But he did it~ at ease.

The Hyun Joong who digs in to his food, image-less…

The Hyun Joong who goes washing hair for others…

…I bet you in his head he must be thinking ‘ok i know it, must scratch the right side, left side, center cos my hair stylist always left out these spots when she shampooed my hair.’ kkkkkkkkk

The Hyun Joong who can talk a lot…

The Hyun Joong who sits so image-less…

…in a comfortable position that makes him open up even more? Hahaha

The Hyun Joong that is forever wanting to challenge for a win…

…but Hyun Joong ah… your Ho Dong hyung is uncle oredi…spare him please~~ kkkkk

The Hyun Joong that even poke at Ho Dong daringly…

…Sa(4)hara, O(5)hara…as long as it’s not Gu(9)hara…

The Hyun Joong that laugh so heartily…

…that makes you brighten up with his laughters. It’s contagious.

Last but not least…the Hyun Joong that totally threw away his Hally Star image with this…
