Arriving at the Circus

Here is a quick video of our arrival on Hamilton Island.  I have a better video in the works but I just can’t seem to find the time to do it as TQ has us taking a psychometric test tomorrow morning at 6:30AM, then a full day’s schedule that goes on till a little past 9PM.  

The product of the quick photo shoot James, Erik and I had during our round of golf.

Here is also an interview that Erik and I did with Channelwhitsunday.com’s John Nayler, who was also the guy who helped me out with my “Crammin’ with Juweon” segments on my blog.  

Here are some pics from our visit to the Pearl, the official residence of the “Island Caretaker.”  It’s an amazing piece of property and these pictures don’t do it justice.

As Ben from the UK said, showing us the house was very “CRUEL” for those not becoming “the one.”  Then for the Welcome Dinner.  Had some of the best lamb, prawns and crocodile meat I’ve ever had.

Exploring Brissy…

We head to Hamilton Island on Sunday morning and before all 3 of my digital cameras and camcorders get inundated with Hamilton Island shots, I thought I make a quick video introducing the lovely city of Brisbane.  I stayed up all night to make this video, despite the 7:30AM wake up call.  It’s currently 5:30AM as I upload this video.  Here’s to hoping that this effort will pay off in the end. 

Enjoy!!!

One Helluva Birthday

May 1st was my 26th birthday.  As Jessica Simpson might say, “twenty six is ALMOST like the mid-20’s.”  I had a very memorable birthday this year, one of the most memorable ones I had so far.  My birthday present this year?  BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA and  15 other wonderful people to hang out for the next week or so (Thank You TQ!).  I arrived in Brisbane at 6:35AM.  Tired and exhausted from 9 hours in a “non-aisle, non-window, non-emergency row” seat being a MUTANT with a 6th L-vertabra is not a fun thing, especially when the tiny girl behind you refused to let you push back your seat. 

Here’s my journey to Brisbane in video form:

Workout Pt I

There are many things that I have been doing to prepare myself for my trip down to Australia, but in today’s post, I want to show you how I’ve been preparing physically for my trip down to Oz and Hamo.  Enjoy and make sure to stay tuned for the Part II of the workout – PILATES!!!

DEVASTATION – UPDATE

I actually emailed Apple to ask them if they could lend me a computer for the interview process down in Australia after my hard drive crashed.  This was their response:

Dear Juweon,

 

Thank you for your email. We are sorry to hear that your MacBook is no longer performing as expected. 

 

I can tell from your blog that you rely quite a bit on your computer, and that this hard drive failure has caused a major disruption for you. 

 

Though we don’t have a program by which we can lend a computer while yours undergoes service, you are encouraged to check with whichever Apple Retail Store (<http://www.apple.com/au/retail>) or Authorized Service Provider (<http://store.apple.com.au/buy/service>) is most convenient to you upon your arrival in Australia. 

 

Be assured that your AppleCare Protection Plan coverage is valid worldwide, and that we will do our best to ensure quick and efficient repair.

 

 

Best regards,

 

Anastasia

Apple Customer Care

To be fair, the service center in Seoul was able to fix my hard drive and restore some of the data before my trip, but the day and a half of lost work day, well I just wish it didn’t happen. 

I got off to a great start today, editing some of my latest videos for my blog and knocking out an interview for a new “blog podcast” that I was planning on launching this week.  I also went to the Apple store and picked up brand new copies of the Leopard OS, iWork09 and iLife09 to use some features for video editing that is not in the iLIFE 08.  But I guess it just was not my day today… my Macbook of 3 years had a catastrophic hard drive failure for the 2nd time in its lifetime.

the little macbook that couldnt...

the little macbook that couldn't...

I really don’t know what to do at this point since I’ve lost 99% of the things I had on my computer.  Emails, photos, music on iTunes, documents… not to mention most of my content and files related to my Best Job in the World campaign…

I know, I know… you are screaming, “Why didn’t you back up your data?!?!”  Well, I was simply “UPDATING” my OS, not formatting and reinstalling the OS.  Another thing, since I have so much faith in Apple (despite experiencing a previous HD failure) and believe in the quality of their products, I thought I could just trust their products to come through.  (IF you work for APPLE or know anyone who does, tell them what’s up!  Maybe Steve Jobs can overnight me a new Mac.  haha.  no, seriously)

tearing up...

tearing up...

I converted to Macs in 2006 and never looked back, even in such a mac-unfriendly environment like Korea where PCs rule and you can’t even access your bank account using a Mac.  I don’t even run BootCamp or Parallel because I’m such a Mac-faithful.

A part of me died today but there is a small, tiny chance of hope.  I think my Apple Care Package runs out in May, so it could be the Big Guy upstairs giving me an opportunity to get me a brand new Mac to get the most bang for my buck.  I’m taking it in to the Apple Center tomorrow, right after my 9AM radio interview in Incheon for the Best Job campaign.  I’m hoping for the best while expecting the worst.

Oh, and if you are wondering what that shape is on my Macbook… it’s the Lonestar State – the Great State of Texas.

it continues to tease me into thinking its going to boot up any second, but the computer just shuts down after being on this screen for about 2 minutes

it continues to "tease" me into thinking it's going to boot up any second, but the computer just shuts down after being on this screen for about 2 minutes

TQ representatives, especially Amy, Nicole and Kerri, if you are reading this… please understand and shoot me your last email to me one more time, even if it was several days ago.

If you happen to be gifted in reviving dead computers, especially macs and you think you know of a way to save some of the info on my comatose computer, please leave me a message on the comment board so I can reach you.

As Annie always says… “The Sun will come out tomorrow.”

Care Package from Texas

I came home from a long and exhausting day on Tuesday to find a care package from my mom back in Texas.

I never told her that I needed shorts and swimming trunks for my visit to Oz, but my mom sent those exact things.  I don’t know how they do it, but that mother’s intuition… when it’s on, it’s really on.

She also included a copy of the San Antonio Express News, the one with my article in it.  I heard she went to the local HEB (name of the grocery store chain in Texas.  Stands for Henry E. Butt – no joke) and apparently bought like 10 copies.

And the “100% Mom” note:

“Juweon,

If you don’t like the shorts or the swimming trunks, just make sure not to pull the tags off because I saved the receipts and I can always exchange them.”

No worries Mom, I like them all.

Then there was this mysterious tupperware heavily wrapped in bubble wrap.

What in the world?  What do you think it is?

What in the world? What do you think it is?

Can you tell now?

So which bathing suit should I wear for my debut on the beaches of Hamo?

Option #1 – a classic number from Nautica…
swimsuit-13

Option #2 – loud and eye-catching from Quicksilver
swimsuit-22

Option #3 – this one from American Eagle just puts
out the “Island Vibe” for the Island-Cartaker candidate.
swimsuit-32

Option #4 – These probably are more to Clarke’s liking… but I’m putting
them out there as one of the options (which might come back to bite me.)
speedo1

This is reader-interaction in the purest sense. If more than 500 readers vote before my “beach debut” on Hamilton Island (no repeat voters), I will wear whatever swimming suit the public chooses to make my beach “debut(for at least 20 minutes in the case of the speedos).

Stay tuned for more updates and don’t forget to vote for my swim suit.

“Testicle” Friend II – The Reunion

Last Sunday was the day when I met my best friend from preschool for the first time in 20 years.  (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out part I of this story here.)  We decided to meet in front of the Shinsegae department store in Banpo, partly because it was a big landmark that everyone knew and partly because my hair salon is located in the adjacent shopping center and my mop needed some tending to.  I swear everything I eat goes to two places in my body, my hair and my fingernails.

Daesung called me just as I was finishing up with my haircut and I rushed down to the main entrance of the department store.  The courtyard in the front looked larger than I remembered and there were more people outside than usual because of the pre-summer-like weather.  I scanned to the left, then to the right, then to the left again but the 7-year old boy that I remembered as my best friend was no where to be found.  Then, out of the corner of my eye, I caught a young man jumping up from one of the benches and walking towards me.  He was a complete stranger but there was an air of familiarity about him.  After a split second I recognized my best friend.  Everything about him was unrecognizable, except the one thing that gave him away, his eyes.  What is it about the human eyes?  The eyes can give up a lie but also show true love, they can reveal the caring heart of a mother but also instill spine-chilling fear with just one glance, and in this case, the eyes identified my BFF when every other feature I remembered was disguised with 20 years of time.

our first reunion in 20 years... remind me once again that he is the ying to my yang (i'm the loud one and he's the quiet one)

Daesung and his sister Jiwon had come out to meet me that day.  Jiwon wasn’t there in the courtyard when I first met Daesung because she had gone into the store to use the ladies room.  As Daesung and I walked into the store, I saw his sister and recognized her right away because she hadn’t changed a bit.

Me, Daesung and Jiwon back then…

Juweon, Jiwon and Daesung now...

Juweon, Jiwon and Daesung now... Jiwon definitely changed the least all these years.

For the first couple of minutes in the car, all of us just let out sighs and comments of amazement between awkward silences.  We kept peeking glances at each other probably wondering what the other had been up to the past 20 years, what they do now and if we both share the same memories of our past years together…because those were the questions running through my head.

Our first choice for dinner, a small mom & pop sushi restaurant was closed.  Because the weather was so nice, we decided that an outdoor restaurant would be a good plan B, so we went to a Bo-Ssam (steamed pork) restaurant on the base of Cheongye Mountain.

Over dinner, we chatted and laughed over our versions of our history two decades ago.  We pieced together old Christmas plays, names of old classmates, memories of Sunday school and preschool functions.  Just like a big jigsaw puzzle, we sat around our plate of bo-ssam, huae-mool jeon (seafood pancake) and our bowls of dong-dong joo (Korean rice wine) piecing together old stories that were buried deep within our heads, each of us contributing a piece here and a piece there, till we made out a broad picture; rekindling a friendship that was separated by the Pacific Ocean and put on hold for nearly 2/3rds of our lives.

Turns out that Daesung and his family still live in the same exact town of Hongjae-dong.  They just moved around within the town about 6 times.  Jiwon is currently working in the import/export business at a company located 2 subway stations from where I work.  Daesung already completed his 2-year mandatory military service that all Korean males have to complete and he’s now taking some extra courses to bolster his computer science degree to better his chances of employment in these trying economic conditions.  The school he’s attending is actually about 10 minutes drive from my radio station and we get done around the same time, so now I have a buddy to have those late dinners with after my show each night.  It wouldn’t be that far fetched to think that we’ve actually crossed paths before here in Seoul, maybe even sat next to each other on the subway or had dinner in the same restaurant as the other.  As we said our goodbyes that night, we promised each other to stay in contact and meet up as often as we can, because we do have some catching up to do.  Daesung told me right before he closed the door to my car, that in a couple of month’s time, he hopes to be doing the catching up on the beautiful white beaches of the Whitsunday Islands (with a nice refreshing cocktail in hand).

“Testicle” Friend?!?!

left to right: 7-year old me, my younger brother and my formerly lost BFF Daesung on our first day of elementary school.  (already starting with that suit jacket...)

left to right: 7-year old me, my younger brother and my formerly lost BFF Daesung on our first day of elementary school. (already starting with that suit jacket...)

This is one of the many amazing stories that were added to my book of life through the magic of the Best Job in the World campaign…

We all have our childhood BFFs (for those who are acronym-challenged, BFF=best friend forever).  Whether it was in preschool, kindergarten or elementary school, differs from person to person, but we all had that friend that we were attached at the hips.  Koreans have a funny word for a friend like this, they call them 불알친구, bul-al chin-gu, literally translated as “bul-al = testicle; chin-gu = friend.”  Yeah… I know, very weird but it makes sense because it’s one of those friends that you knew since you were so little that you have the “infamous” bathtub photo (you guys know what I’m talking about, it’s the one where your mothers thought it would be cute if they took a picture of you guys being bathed together as babies).  It can also have an added meaning if you take in the public bath culture here in Korea, but that’s a whole another blog that I won’t be writing unless I need to drastically increase the hits on my blog.  Anyways, simply put, a bul-al chingu is a friend who goes way back into your childhood.

Michael Knight and KITT = the epitome of "cool" in my childhood

Michael Knight and KITT = the epitome of "cool" in my childhood

Before my time in the US, I had such a friend here in Korea.  In fact, he is the reason why my middle name is Jonathan.  His name was Daesung and our friendship began in preschool.  I remember one winter, we begged our moms to buy us the same black leather jacket so we can both pretend to be Michael Knight – David Hasselhoff’s character in the popular 80’s TV series Knight Rider (we got American TV shows dubbed in Korean).  MacGyver, The A-Team, and Air Wolf were some of my other American import favorites along with The Wonder Years and Murder She Wrote.  When my parents gave my brother and I the option of choosing our own English names, we both wanted to be called Michael for obvious reasons but my

MacGyver... awesome mullet, not so awesome as a first name

MacGyver... awesome mullet, not so awesome as a first name

brother won the rock, paper, scissors match.  I then opted for the second coolest American I knew, MacGyver, but I was told by my American born cousins that choosing that route would cause me years of mental and possibly, physical turmoil (although Juweon MacGyver Kim does have a nice flow to it).  So I chose Jonathan because Daesung and I always used to say that we were best friends like the Biblical characters David and Jonathan in the Old Testament.  Since my Korean name started with a J, I went with Jonathan.

Daesung and I were inseparable.  If either of our moms wanted to locate us, all they had to do was call the other’s house.  We always walked back from preschool together, raced our bikes around the neighborhood and built Lego fortresses for our imaginary intergalactic wars.  I recall being so disappointed at the fact that Daesung and I were not in the same 1st grade class when we entered elementary school, but since his apartment was right across the street from the school, neither of us showed any symptoms of withdrawal.

My family moved after I finished the 1st grade.  Daesung and I did exchange letters and pictures through the snail mail for a couple of years.  I’m sure if I go dig around some of the shoe boxes back in my parent’s home, I could find a couple of those letters.  But after a while, both of us got busy with our own lives half way across the world from each other and we soon lost contact.

I’ve been trying to find Daesung ever since my visit to Korea in 2001.  It was my first time being back after 10 years of being away from Korea, but I couldn’t locate him.  In 2006, when I moved to Korea after college, I set out to find him again, even asking a family friend who worked in the central prosecutors’ office, but to no avail since Daesung was such a common name in the country.  I had basically given up any hope of finding my childhood BFF until last Monday.

Naver - the reason why Google will never make it big here in Korea

Naver - the reason why Google will never make it big here in Korea

Monday, April 6th was when Korea’s internet newspapers and portals exploded with my story of making the final 16.  I was on the front page of Naver and Daum, two of Korea’s biggest search engines and my story was on the front page of Cyworld, Korea’s version of facebook.  My Cyworld page got 1499 hits that day, which was more than double the total number of visitors I had until then.  I got scores of random messages from perfect strangers congratulating me and wishing me luck, but one of them stood out.  It was from a girl that said that my picture looked very familiar and asked me if I happened to live in Hongjae-dong, my old neighborhood.  She then wrote that her younger brother, Daesung had a best friend that looked a lot like me and had the same name as me.

check it out - www.cyworld.com/texasjon BUT be warned... very mac-unfriendly :(

check it out - http://www.cyworld.com/texasjon BUT be warned... very mac-unfriendly 😦

I COULDN’T BELIEVE IT!  The one person I wanted to see the most here in Korea actually found me because of the BJITW campaign.  Life really is so unpredictable and it finds a way to surprise you when you least expect it.  So after 20 years of not seeing each other, I’m meeting Daesung this afternoon in my old neighborhood of Hongjae-dong.  I’ll keep you guys posted.

Oh, one more thing…

THANK YOU TQ for making this possible.

TRIVIA QUESTION OF THE DAY:


P.S.  I know it’s only April and X-mas is really far away, but for those of you who like to shop early, these would make EXCELLENT stocking-stuffers for one island caretaker candidate from Seoul.

Kim Jong-Il Rains on My Parade

Social Networking Update: After resisting the urge to convert to Twitter, my circle of advisers have finally convinced me to start.  http://www.twitter.com/juweonnago  Come see what I’m up to!

Last Friday, the day that TQ announced their final 16, I experienced what being on cloud nine really felt like!  I went into work on just 1 hour of sleep… er sleep is too strong of a word here… an attempted 1 hour cat-nap  that was frequently interrupted by congratulatory text messages and phone calls every couple of minutes.  I didn’t mind and I was more than happy to answer and reply to every single one of them.

Even though I went into work on almost zero sleep, I felt great because the adrenaline from my euphoric state in the morning was still pumping through my body.  I wish I can bottle up that feeling and sell it as an anti-depressant because that rush… man, I guarantee you it will drop kick any depressive state faster than Koreans reach for kimchi on the dinner table.

I was really looking forward to this weekend.  The “best job in the world” (BJITW) campaign had absolutely swallowed my life and chewed me up the past month and I was exhausted.  I wanted to take the two days to recharge my batteries, spend time with my close friends who had been riding in the backseat while BJITW took shotgun all this time.  Although I did get to spend a quality Saturday night with my friends, my weekend was not the “recharging” weekend I was hoping for, all thanks to our cognac-loving neighbor in Pyongyang, Mr. Kim Jong-il.

I think I might pay to see a conversation between these two...

I would definitely pay money to see these two carry on a conversation

If you guys hadn’t heard, North Korea fired off a ballistic missile under the name of “space exploration & satellite launching.”  Of course, since what I do is news and current events, our show went into DEFCON 5 and my weekend was no more.  Without getting into all the politics and analysis of the matter (if that’s what you want, click here every evening at 6PM Korea Standard Time) I think I can pin this whole missile crisis on one specific moment in history; actually I can trace it to one INSTANT MESSAGE conversation between Kim Jong-il and George W. Bush.  Using my connections in Washington, I was able to obtain the transcript of the conversation.

bush-kim-jongil2

For more hilarious conversations like this one, check out here.  The author is a genius.

Now, let’s hope the next guy understands the intricacies of the Knock Knock jokes.

To make a long story short, good ol’ Jong-il just rained all over my parade and gave me even less time to focus on my campaign, but… “when life hands you lemons (or in this case, missiles), make lemonade out of them.”

Enjoy a cool glass for me!

THE CALL

The time that TQ would make the announcement for the final 16 (the number of finalists that they decided to increase to from 11) was 11pm UTC on April 2nd.  That translates to 8AM on April 3rd Korean Time.  Needless to say, I did not sleep a wink.  For those who made the cut, TQ said they would be calling about an hour ahead, so I sat by my computer, logged into the MSN chat room that Hailey set up for the other 50 shortlisters on NING (an online community based soley for fans and followers of the Best Job competition who want the latest info on the candidates and the competition) and placed my cell right next to the laptop.  About 20 minutes after 7 AM, Hailey got the very first phone call.  Hailey was IN, and not surprisingly.  Then a couple of people in the chat room said they received emails telling them they were OUT.

RING~~~~~ my home phone rings and I run to get the wireless headset across the house, shattering my knee cap on the desk drawer in the process.  It’s MY GRANDMA’S FRIEND calling to talk to my grandma who’s on Jeju island enjoying a quick 3 day getaway with her friends.  And she would not hang up.  I finally get off the phone with her as politely as humanly possible then BOOM, another disaster.

It was at this point that my computer couldn’t take the excitement any longer and decided to freeze.  I had to reset my computer, which caused me to exit out of the group chat and I wasn’t able to get back in once the computer rebooted.  So basically, I was the cyberspace version of the kid who missed out on the game of dodge ball at recess because I took too long to get to the playground.  So there I was getting updates from James Hill and Steven from TX on separate chats.

James messages me “Cali just got in.”  Followed by Steven telling me “Doug, Linda and Jackie are out.”  And I’m sitting there trying so desperately to take a peek through the cracks of this imaginary cyberspace door that is preventing me from getting back into the chat room.

James speculates it’s pretty much over. Then I get a “WOOOOOOOHHHH” from James. Obviously, it’s good news.

7:40AM no call, no email for me.  I get back on NING to follow the updates coming from Greg who’s relaying the message from the MSN chat.

7:45, 15 minutes till they announce the results on the web, I still haven’t gotten a call or email.

Then all of a sudden my CELL STARTS TO RING… the number on the caller ID is +0000-0000 International Call… my heart is pounding, my breathing gets faster, my fingers are trembling…

I answer and I hear the sweetest male voice I have ever heard, second only to Luciano Pavarotti who I heard live back in ’94 at the Hollywood Bowl.  Okay, back to the call…

ME:  Hello?

Qld Minister for Tourism and Fair Trading
Peter Lawlor:  Yes… is this Jooo-wee-on?

the rest of my bumbling and trembling phone call was recorded on my built in cam on my macbook which i managed to activate.  god i love macs.  hope you enjoy!

Go check out the following page yourself by clicking here. If for some reason they still say my age is 32, it’s not, it’s 25. I guess I still have a bit more marketing to do to make myself look young.  (they have now fixed the  web page to display my correct age.  hooray!)

whos that sexy man on the far left?

who's that sexy man on the far left?

he would make mighty fine island caretaker!

he would make mighty fine island caretaker!

Haven’t slept in the past 28 hours. I’m going to bed.  Work in 4 hours.

PEACE to the Middle East!
