Kim Sun Ah (a.k.a. Kim Sam Soon) in the flesh!

An Unexpected Celebrity Sighting

I love “MY Name is Kim Sam Soon” and when I saw Kim Sun Ah in the flesh, I was just excited! Here’s how it happened.

Yesterday, September 11, Anna and I decided to meet each other in Namdaemun, the “Divisoria” of Korea. The typical me arrived 30 minutes late at the designated meeting place, Hoehyeon subway station. We decided to just go to Myeongdong, the fashion capital of Korea, instead of the original destination. It’s about a 10-minute walk from the station.

As soon as we arrived in Myeongdong, we noticed a crowd in front of Paris Baguette, a popular chain bakery. There was a small stage set right beside the entrance to the store. We continued walking until we heard some people screaming.

Right there on the stage was Kim Sun Ah, the heroine of the hit drama “My name is Kim Sam Soon.” Of course, we walked toward the stage so we can get a closer look at her. She said something in Korean, but I didn’t listen and I wouldn’t have understood what she was saying anyway. I just took pictures!

Kim sun Ah just appeared for a few minutes and went back inside the store. We tried not to get in since a couple of men-in-black were blocking the way to the store. We didn’t expect to see any celebrity but I guess we were at the right place at the right time.

Living in Seoul makes it possible for us to see Korean celebrities. First, I saw Lee Hyori at a book signing in COEX. I also saw a kpop star at a subway one time while they were filming. And now it’s Kim Sun Ah in the flesh. I hope to see more of my favorite Korean stars!
