Stories Leslie Kee Shared at the Exhibit
A member of a Japanese fan site B.S.J (Satovic’s site) went to the Super Stars Exhibit held in Tokyo on the opening day , and had the good luck of seeing Mr. Leslie Kee there. The photographer generously shared his stories and views on B.Y.J. (because there were many people surrounding the photographer at the time, please be informed that there may be minor discrepancies in this report)
☆ I (Leslie Kee) met Yong Joon and President Sohn of IMX at Gosireh before its official opening. Now that we were facing this situation (about the Tsunami? Or perhaps YJ’s popularity?), I, as a Singaporean and the two of them as Koreans agreed on doing something together for the sake of Asia here in Japan.
☆ In front of his camera, Yong Joon seemed more like a creator/ artist than an actor.
☆ He possessed an aura resembling that of god.
☆ Yong Joon himself chose the two photos to be shown at the exhibit among the 270 (?) which were taken.
☆ He looked at the photographs of the other 300 participants before he chose his own.
☆ I was very happy that he chose photos which were totally different from the other ones. (I would have been at loss if he had chosen something similar to the front page of “CREA” magazine.)
☆ He seemed to possess a sure eye on photography that was up with the professionals.
☆ Among the words for the caption (English words that could be understood by elementary school children) he chose the word “Family”. (I recommended “Royal”, but he chose “Family”)
☆ He voluntarily posed for the photos in a natural way. He liked the photo in which he laid down on the sofa. I gave him one in the same size as a gift, and Yong Joon said he had it up on his wall at home. He never thought about doing such a thing in the past.
☆ He was not smoking.
☆ Compared to the other people, he only brought a few costumes to the photo session.
(I thought I heard him say, that he was invited to hold an exhibit in Seoul).
Thank you dorasuki-san for your report!
