The 2016 Toy Mountain campaign


30 more sleeps until Christmas, my friends!

It's time for us to prepare our new, unwrapped toys for the Toy Mountain.

I try to buy toys that nurture creativity and imagination. Also no batteries needed. If any parents don't have money to buy Christmas presents, they won't have money to buy batteries for toys, either.

2 years ago I bought a Disney Frozen Tea Set at Wal-Mart.
Last year I bought a craft kit by Creativity for Kids at Chapters.
This year I bought a box of Mega Bloks at Wal-Mart.

I tend to buy toys for girls, I guess next year I should buy one for a boy.

Want to know more about how you can donate a toy or be a volunteer? Please check the Toy Mountain website.

Don't have time to buy a toy or be a volunteer?
We can donate money online instead. 

Ottawa

Toronto

Winnipeg

Vancouver (only cash donation accepted)
On December 8th and 9th, please drop off a donation of cash at Guildford Town Centre. New, unwrapped toys are also welcome. 


Thank you for spreading Christmas Joy to children in need!

Have an awesome weekend, my friends!!

After laughing so much, will you worry you may overeat?
No worries.

The Crown Prince Lee Yeong (Park Bo Gum) from Love in the Moonlight told his younger sister a secret before this Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving) on Sept 15, 2016.

Yeong:
여봐라 추석명절 음식은 맛있게 먹으면 O칼로리라고 했거늘
누이동생 명은이에게도 이번명절은 아낌없이 먹으라고 전했다~
There is a saying that "If you eat deliciously on Chuseok / Thanksgiving Day, 0 calories." So, I told my younger sister Myeong Eun (Jung Hye Sung) to eat as much as she wants this Thanksgiving.

Love in the Moonlight's Hanbok fan meeting 2 - Entertainment Weekly 2016.10.24

KBS World's Entertainment Weekly (2016.10.24) has a video of Love in the Moonlight's Hanbok fan meeting. Main cast Kim You Jung, Park Bo Gum, Jin Young and Kwak Dong Yeon signed autographs for fans on Oct 19, 2016 in Gyeongbokgung Palace.

Too bad we can't see Kwak Dong Yeon's face...

Here is another cute Kim You Jung photo from Love in the Moonlight's Hanbok fan meeting on Oct 19, 2016.

Park Bo Gum:If our viewership ratings exceed 20%,  
we will hold an autograph signing event at
 Gwanghwamun Gate wearing hanbok.

And, Of course, thanks to all the viewers in Korea!!

Yes, Kim You Jung and other actors signed autographs for fans in Gyeongbokgung Palace (경복궁 / 景福宮). I don't know if the event was held at Gwanghwamun Gate (광화문 / 光化門) or not. But, who cares?

From the video of Love in the moonlight Fan meeting site interview [Entertainment Weekly 2016.10.24], we get a better look of what those lucky 200 fans received from the fan meeting. Can you tell which autograph belongs to Kim You Jung, Park Bo Gum, Jin Young or Kwak Dong Yeon?

In this Hanbok fan meeting, Park Bo Gum received a special gift made by fans.

Amazing 신기 singi

Unlike his emotionless character Kim Byeong Yeon in Love in the Moonlight, I especially like Kwak Dong Yeon's reaction. He really looks like a curious teenager in this photo.

Here is the video.

I wonder why only Park Bo Gum got a gift? Was it because he suggested to have this Hanbok fan meeting?

Anyways, thank you Kim You Jung, Park Bo Gum, Jin Young and Kwak Dong Yeon. Looking forward to watching Love in the Moonlight from episode 1 again and again. Oh, and your future new period dramas, too. Sorry, not a big fan of Korean modern dramas.
