FAN ACCOUNT: My Second Viewing of R2B, 8.26.2012

I must say that meeting BiAlamode and Gee this weekend was a “blast”! Their company was so enjoyable, and meeting BiAlamode’s mom was just icing on the cake. We recognized that we have multiple things in common other than just our dear Rain during our extended visit over lunch (thanks again, Gee).
RETURNED LATER FOR MORE RETURN TO BASE
My second viewing of R2B took place Sunday at 6:50 pm with a friend that just moved back to Texas from Colorado. She became a Cloud when I posted Bi’s video of “Nan” on her Facebook page last year, because I knew Lee Byung Hun was one of her favorite Korean actors and we both loved him in GI Joe—so I was certain that Rain was right down her alley!
When I told her about R2B: Return to Base being shown in the Dallas area, her first comment was, “What time are we going?”
I reached my destination — AMC Grapevine Mills — bit early and waited for her to arrive. There was quite a bit of construction on the freeway, so traffic was heavy in the area. On her arrival, we got our tickets and made an express stop at the concession stand, and then proceeded to find our target! (WHY have I been using aviation/pilot terms since I saw this movie? LOL!) We took our seats and made sure our seat belts were securely fastened before the movie started—kekeke (so they could be used as a flotation device if necessary).
As I looked down our row, I noticed seven or eight ajummas (some with the big sun visors on IN THE THEATER). They peeked around at us with an inquisitive look, too. A young family (Dad, Mom and about an 8 year old son) came in and chose seats directly in front of us—why did the little boy have on a blue sparkly tracksuit jacket like Kim Joo Won (Hyun Bin) in Secret Garden? I immediately smiled, then my eyes met his parents’ eyes and ALL THREE OF US burst out in laughter! My friend asked me, “Why does he have on that sparkly jacket?” My question to her was, “You haven’t seen Secret Garden, have you?” She replied no, so I told her she should place that on her DramaFever playlist.
As we watched the film, my friend asked multiple times, “Why is HE sooooooo sexy?” I said, “It is what it is, and IT is sexy! “ LMBO!
Well, at a crucial time in the movie, one of the ajummas’ cellphones rang REALLY loud. (annoying ringtone/at the bottom of her purse/ fumbling to find it) THEN she proceeded to answer it and have a fussy conversation—ending with the classic “aish” and “aigoo”. All eyes in the room were on her with heat seeking missiles ready to deploy! Once she was done, we all got off “high alert” and went back to “Alpha 1″ position, enjoying the beautiful thing that is Jung JiHoon on the big screen.
When Rain appeared in the scene where he has on a suit while borrowing his friend’s car, all we could say was…wait for it, Stephe… ROGER THAT! There were about 40 or 50 people in the theater this time, so I hope more were able to make the last showing of the day at 9:40 pm. I was disappointed in the theater not having any promotional items on hand, not even the normal posters in the hallway.
Thursday ends R2B’s “limited engagement.” Even if Bi’s movie isn’t here for a long period of time, I guarantee everyone who saw it was pleased and happy for him being able to have his feature film shown in the USA!
Over and out. Wah!
