a dream job

what do ms. hong eun kyoung have in common with rachel zoe, philip bloch, danna weiss, todd shemarya, sam saboura & andrea lieberman ? they are all stylists of famous celebrities ! they have even attained some kind of 'celebrity stylists' status for their creativity, vision and of course, affiliation to famous names. btw, accdg to a recent LA Times article, rachel zoe is the biggest star stylist today in hollywood. she is credited for making the blonde-bronzed-thin-sexy look of the moment in hollywood.

back to our ms. hong, i guess almost all byj fans knows who she is. she is none other than the lady responsible in creating the look of yong joon during his official tours, public event appearances and even lends a hand in coming up with his images in CFs, magazine & poster shoots.

but what readily comes to my mind when i think of ms hong is that, she's this petite and pretty lady who we almost always see in pics and vods standing or sitting beside yong joon, behind yong joon, in front of yong joon, combing his hair, fixing his tie, pulling his belt, removing his shirt, touching him here and there....@@@ it's almost like undressing him !! really, some girls simply have all the luck in the world!!! & surely, this lady has one of the best jobs there is in this entire planet ^^

seriously though, i think being a stylist of a celebrity is not an easy task. they are not just merely part of a star's entourage party. they have this responsibility in presenting a celebrity to the public with a look that can make a big difference. i'm sure in the case of ms. hong, she would agonize for days or weeks on what yong joon would wear in a particular event and at the same time makes sure that he would be comfortable and relaxed in the clothes and styles she has chosen and in the end, achieving that elusive thrown together stylish and elegant look, the BYJ look !!

it's also a known fact that ms hong has been with yong joon for so many years. i guess they already have this brother-sister kind of relationship and that there is this long standing trust and commitment between the two ( i'm feeling enviousss again !!).

ok, here are some pics that will give us a glimpse of this special bond ms. hong has with our man :)

personally, i prefer the colors black, white, brown or gray in clothes ( too drab ??). i do appreciate ms. hong's effort in coming up with new styles & trying on new colors for yong joon but what i really like the most is when she dressed him up in my fave colors or at least had a helping hand in giving us some of yong joon's best least through my eyes !!! are some of my faves *wink*

Hi Frances, maybe someday she will need an assistant, who knows ?

honestly, sincerely, strongly I believe our YJ will look great himeself withour her touch-up. I really hate the hair style on 2nd of the last photo and sitting with Hong(sitting high) photo. It really frustrates me a lot, I mean a "LOT". Why cover up all those beautiful forehead and temple and sides of his head? She is NO good!!But YJ is so good to his employees that he will keep her for long.

hello byjglobal !
i'm sure that ms hong is already aware that even w/ just a simple hairstyle or wardrobe, yong joon will still manage to come out looking gorgeous ^^

I agree I don't like those flashy pink, turquois color suits. I like him in tan, browns, black, gray, pinstripes. He has what it takes so he doesn't need those bright colors!

BTW - This newbie didn't know about Ms. Hong. Good stuff to know. Thanks!

I can tolerate the bold colors but I hope I won't ever see that apple hair again or the too girly shade of lipstick.

Ok frances, Ms Hong is in charge of his image in public appearances. Maybe I can be the stylist in his private life? I promise I demand a much lesser budget and charge a next-to- nothing fee (of course his wardrobe will accordingly be almost next-to-nothing **wink wink**). OK, no objection from anyone?

hi mrs a & marissa!
i would like to think that ms hong has finally realized that yong joon does not need so much colors or make up to make him look good. less is more attractive ^^

hey jaime,
no objection here long as you'll find a way to have me around ( in whatever capacity !) whenever he tries on his next-to- nothing wardrobe...*triple wink* !!
