People Who Supported BYJ - Part 1
'I had watched "Winter Sonata" being fascinated by Choi Ji Woo-san's beauty, but it was not until later I became interested in Bae Yong Joon-san. (laughs) In this event, I only had a moment with him, but we shook hands and said our hellos. He was a very courteous person. He seemed to know that I was older than him. I got the impression that he was a man of good upbringing. I think it's a great thing to act decently. We passed each other in the hallway just before the event, and he looked at me with the expression, "I would appreciate your support" - I realized then, that he remembered who I was. Being a man who is always working with about 50 people around him, I had thought he would not remember me. Watching how considerate he was torwards others, and the respectable way he behaved as a human being, I thought he was a man with great charm.'
