“Oh my. I didn’t even realize that. Time flies. It’s late now, why don’t you sleep over here?” asked Dawn.
“Nah, I better not. Besides, I planned to go visit some places tomorrow. I want to start early tomorrow. So guys, thanks again. Good night!” said Mag, walking towards the door.
‘Oh no. She’s leaving again. What should I do? I have to think fast. Think YH, think!’ YH thought to himself.
Mag took a quick glance at YH and before anyone in the room saw that, she diverts back to Sam. “Good Night, Sam. I’ll talk to you perhaps tomorrow?”
JJ noticed the glance and gave YH a nudge on the elbow. YH got the message. Finally.
“I’ll send you back to the hotel since I need to go to the 24-hours mart to get some items.” YH offered.
“Oh, it’s fine. It’s not good publicity for a celebrity to be seen with an unknown girl. Besides, I planned to catch a cab.” Mag’s starting to be nervous now.
Sam on the other hand of course knows what’s going on among them. “Mag, please let him do so. It’s not safe to catch a cab at this time and it’s going to be pricey, you know?”
“Yea Mag, let him drop you off. If anything happens to you, Sam is going to kill us for not sending you home.” Said CM. The moment he said that, 8 pairs of eyes glared at him.
“CM, you know that’s not going to happened, right? And do not talk nonsense late at night.” JJ says.
“Yea Yea, my apologies…” said CM unwillingly.
“You heard CM, let me drive you back.” YH tries his luck again.
Mag took a look at Sam.
“Sighs. All right, only at the end of the street. Not at the front door. I don’t want to cause you trouble.” Mag reluctantly agreed.
YH’s face brightens up. Some of them standing there wondering why but Sam and JJ knows it all and smiles as well.
“Well, let’s go. It’s getting late.” Said YH while opening the door.
“Alright. Good Night, guys. It’s been a great night. Thanks again.” Mag says before turning to the door.

"Hello? Yes, I'm around the apartment. Just roaming around. Aren't you supposed to be in training today? Oh, you are done? Want to have dinner together? Ok. I'll be back soon.” She says walking away from the store. Where was the person behind her just now? He's being stopped by another group of girls.
“OMG~ It's YH! Are you YH? Can we have your autograph please? Can we take a picture with you? Please... Please..” A group of girls in the record store has finally recognize him. They approached him and created another hullabaloo in the store. Mag took this opportunity and sneaked out of the store while she's on the phone with Sam acting as if she couldn't hear the other end of the phone and cause her to leave the store to hear better.
'Oh no! She left! I didn't even take her phone number or name yet! Oh no..' he thought to himself and felt very disappointed.
“Hyung, where did you go? We were looking for you. SAND is organizing a party for Sam's friend from Malaysia. Dawn's cooking. We got to get home earlier to help out and to welcome our new friend.” said CM.
“Erm... you guys go home first. I'll be home soon. I need to settle up with something here in the studio.” said YH still thinking about that girl.
'Did she forget me? Or she doesn't recognize me? I wonder if...' YH thought.
“Are you alright YH? You look like something's bothering your mind.” JJ asked. Being the 'mother' of the group, he always seemed to be able to read their minds through their body gesture. That's JJ.
“Nothing real important. Just about the new song I'm writing... I think I need to do some changes to it. That's all. Don't worry...” YH beginning to give excuses. He kinda knew that JJ will notices something's up with him.
“Oh, I thought you were thinking of something else because you aren't usually like this if it's only about your song.” JJ grinned.
“Haha. Really. Don't worry.” YH insisted.
“ Hyung. We have to really get going. We'll be late and I'm sure you don't want 'someone' to do everything by herself.” CM being himself again, pestering.
“ Okay, okay! I'll be there in a bit. You guys go downstairs first.” JJ said to CM.
Then, he turned to YH and said “ You. Don't work too late and come back earlier. It's not polite to come home late when there's guest around. Don't you want to see who's Sam friend is? This is the first time she introduces her friend to us. I'm curious how she is.”
“ Don't worry. I'll be home early. Drive safe, okay.” YH promises and went back to his work.
Even though he tried real hard to focus, but he couldn't. He couldn't get her out of her mind. He kept thinking bout her. Wondering if she had forget their little encounter 3 years ago. Without him realizing, the clock turns to 11 pm.
'Oh no! I'm late. They are going to be sooo mad with me.' YH quickly grab his belongings and left.
“Sorry guys, I'm late. I tried to rush back as soon as I can. I didn't realize that it's so late.” YH apologizes once someone opened the door.
“ We kinda figured that so we didn't really waited for you. YH, this is Mag. Mag, this is YH. Mag is Sam's friend from Malaysia that we have been expecting.” YC introduces them to each another.
Suddenly JJ elbowed YH waking him up from his 'dream'. He couldn't believe he's looking at the face of this girl standing in front of him that he went stunned. JJ has actually expected this to happen once he saw Mag. He sort of recognize this face even though she really changed a lot. He also wondered if YH will recognize her but his question's answered once he saw YH's reaction.
“Hi, I'm Mag. Nice to meet you.” Mag reaches out to shake his hand while trying to remain calm.
“Hi, Nice to meet you too. So, you are Sam's friend from Malaysia. How long do you intend to stay here? It would be nice if we could be able to show you some places.” YH offered while he tries to look in her eyes and hoping to find a glimpse of happiness or excitement. He himself are real happy to see her. He really does hope the same from her.
“ I'm still planning on my stay here. I do not want to create trouble for you guys. You guys have a hectic schedule and should rest whenever possible. How could I take that away from you guys. Thanks for your offer though.” Mag tries to be polite and remain calm in the same time.
Only 5 people in that room knew what's really going on but everyone in that room feels that awkwardness sense in the air created by this two person.
“Don't worry, YH. I'll take care of her.” said Sam breaking the tension between them.
“Hey, Mag. Heard you've been to the States. Which part you went to?” asked YC trying ro create a conversation with her.
“I visited some places in NJ and NYC only. Never been to many places. I wish I could go more places but time constricts me from doing so.” explain Mag.
“Awww, that's a bummer. “ said YC.
The conversation went on until late. Everyone was actually having fun and enjoying each another's company that night. SAND and TVXQ has always been good friends since the beginning but Mag blended in quite well although she's still feeling weird being in the same room with these superstars. She felt like she's dreaming when she's thinks bout it.

Mag sits there by herself again. At her favorite spot of all the places she has been in the past one year. Without her noticing it, it has already been a year that she set her foot on this ground and start all her training to be able to host a program on her own now. She is constantly being grateful to God that she's granted this opportunity that a lot of people would die for. She remembers that a year ago, she came here only with her diploma, a little knowledge of korean cultural, a little knowledge of korean language but with a lot of courage. She initially came to visit her best friend who's now the leader of Asia's top girls group, SAND. By a twist of fate, she came interview at the radio station she's working now and being spotted by her mentor, a famous ex-radio host who's now more active as a program producer.
She looks at the sky again and took a deep breath. The sky always seems to be able to let her calm down and relax. She always seems to be feeling much better after looking at the beautiful sky. Minute by minute time flew by. Memories flashes in her mind like movies.
A year ago, she came to this country, in the purpose of visiting her best friend and to go sightseeing like she had always wanted to. She had always wanted to experience life in Korea and see if it is just like what she saw in the dramas she had watch throughout the years.
She was walking alone down the street of malls and supermarkets and she found a group of girls creating some sort of commotion. They all seemed to be very excited and to be running around someone. Mag took a peek and it was some one she wanted to see 'live' forever. It's YH. It's been 3 years after she last met him. She's excited like all those young girls too but the kept herself together and stayed calm. She does not want to act stupid.
He stopped and took a quick look at her direction.
'No. It couldn't be her. She's from Malaysia and here's Korea. Besides, she looked different too. It couldn't be her.' YH thought to himself.
'Is he looking at me? He couldn't be. We only met once like 3 years ago? He met tonnes of fans throughout the year, he couldn't have remember me. He couldn't have.' Mag reminds herself and kept on walking into a record store. She walks to the farthest corner where she can have some kind of privacy and away from all those brouhaha out there. She reach for the headphone that were there so that customers can listen to the songs they wanted to try. Coincidently, it's their song. It's the top seller for consecutively fifty week. However, she's not in the mood for any of their song for the moment. Hence, she walk over to grab an album from classical music segment. She found her favourite piece, Beethoven No.7.
He walked in the record store that he last saw her in before. He's glad he finally be able to get rid of the group of fans that where following him just now. His eyes search frantically for the face he kept thinking of for the past 3 years despite to the fact that he wasn't sure if it's her or not. He still wanted to look for himself. Finally he sees her. She's listening to their song! His heart jumped happily. Just as he wanted to walk towards her, she put down the headphone and went to the classical segment. Beethoven No.7. She looked so calm and satisfied as she starts to listen to the album. His heart felt like he just fell from the top of Mount Everest. However, he still pull himself together and gather all his courage and walk towards her. He felt more nervous than his very first performance.
'What if she doesn't remember me? What if this is a wrong person? Will I put my career at risk?' He asked himself all these questions as he is walking towards her.
Mag felt that someone has stand behind her. She thought that someone wants to reach in for albums so she moved aside without looking up. But that person still stands there doing nothing and she felt like that person is staring at her. She started to feel annoyed because this person has ruined her peaceful moment so she looked up and just as she wanted to say something, she realized that it's him! She was stupefied.
'What is he doing here? He couldn't have remember me.' she thought to herself.
Wednesday, June 3, 2009
Mag was so tired for the whole week. She barely got enough rest and sleep. However, she still works as hard as she could and give her 110% in her job. It's 8 o'clock in the morning and she's on her way to work. Trying to keep herself concentrate on the road while listening to the radio. TVXQ and SAND is having a radio interview together regarding a latest album their are collaborating for summer.
"Good morning! Today we have two of Asia's top group, TVXQ and SAND! You guys wanna say hi to the listeners?" said MC Kim.
"Good Morning everyone. We are...TVXQ! and we are...SAND!" they said.
"So you guys are having an album together for summer huh? This is huge. For Asia's top 2 group to have an album together. So, how does this came about?" asked MC Kim.
"Well, we have been friends since SAND entered the company as we stayed in the same building. We had always said that we have to have an album together and our company thinks that this is a good idea and this is a good timing, so here we have an album." answered JJ.
"There's a very interesting track in here named 'Happy Birthday'. Is this a traditional version or just the name?" MC Kim asked.
"Erm, this is a new song we wanted to dedicate to everyone out there as we all think everyone deserved a birthday song. Since we are here today, we would like to dedicated it to all the birthday girls and boys who's listening." said YH.
"Alright. Let's listen to this special song,everyone. Enjoy." MC Kim said.
"♫♪My Little Princess....♬♩" Mag's phone suddenly rang at the same time.
'It's for you, my dear. I know you are listening. Happy Birthday. I'll see you tonight." It's a text message from YH.
Just in time, Mag has arrived at her office. Hence, she can park her car and pay full attention on the song. Suddenly she felt warmth on her face. She cried. She's so touch with the song. Especially now that he told her that the song is specially for her. Just as YH's style. She has actually expected him to do something on this day but just not something huge like this.
The whole day, she finds herself hard to concentrate on work. The song has been playing over and over in her mind.
"♫♪All in my heart, It's all in my soul....♬♩"
'Are you available later around 11 p.m? Come over to our apartment. I have something for you. I can't leave here tonight. HE placed someone at the lobby to watch us.' It's Sam.
'OK.' Mag replies. The person she meant must be LSM as the were rumors running around saying that a member of SNSD are dating some punks from local triad. Hence, LSM has tighten all the securities of all the artist under his company.
Mag look at the clock. It's 10 p.m. and she's done for the day. After she load up all her gifts from her colleague and her loyal fans, she suddenly thought about YH. She hasn't heard from her the whole day after that text message.
'He must be busy.' She says to herself.
"Happy Birthday!!!!" Shouted the whole gang as she enters the room. Sam, Alyn, Nat and Dawn were all there. She looked around. No sign of TVXQ at all.
'They must be still at work.' She says to herself again.
"You don't have to look. They are not here. Only us. They had a last minute meeting about the album they were working on." says Sam knowing what she's looking for.
"I understand. Thank you for all these. I don't know what to say." She hugs her.
"Oh ya! What's all that song about?! How come you didn't tell me anything about that?! I was so surprised by it." asked Mag pulling away from her.
"HE threatens us all not to tell you. He's the leader ma, so no one dares to say anything. Sorry." explained Dawn. Mag looks at their 4 grinning faces.
Time flies by like lightning and it's already 1 a.m. and still no sign of TVXQ.
"I got to go girls, I've got to work early morning tomorrow. Thanks for the celebration. And have fun in tomorrow's concert!" said Mag after giving each of them a big hug.
"Ok. Drive safe, okay? And Happy Birthday again." says Sam.
"Ok. I will. Good night and thanks again." said Mag walking out the door.
Mag walks to the corridor and gave TVXQ's apartment door a glance. Pitch black inside.
'I guess they must be working late tonight. Hope everything goes smoothly.' she says to herself while pressing the elevator button.
The door opens. She sees the eyes that she has been logging to see the whole day.
"Hi guys! Welcome home. How's everything been? I heard you've got a last minute meeting on the new album. Is everything alright?" Mag asked a bunch of questions while trying to avoid the stares of the man she long for the whole day.
"Everything is fine. Thanks for asking and Happy Birthday! Even though it's an hour late. Hope you don't mind." said JJ looking at his wrist watch.
"Of course I don't mind, silly you. Alright, I'll let you guys go. Sure it's been a long day for you guys and I've got to work early tomorrow morning. I'll see you guys around, okay?" says Mag entering the elevator that they walked out of. However, she realized a man is still in there. JJ gave them a wink before the door closed.
"Happy Birthday, my dear." he says while walking closer to her. She can feel his breath.
"Thank you. You better get up there before someone caught you. Don't forget LSM's people are all over the lobby." Mag says while trying to hold a distance between them even though she doesn't seems to success.
"It's fine. I saw them leaving for coffee break when we came back. I'm sorry for being late. I tried to cut everything short but the producer never wants to let us go. If it isn't for us to have an early shooting tomorrow morning, we are still in the office now." said YH while his hands reaching for her waist trying to hold her closer as if she vanished right in front of his eyes. He had yearn for this face for the whole day.
"So, what do you think of that song. I wrote it." asked YH.
"How dare you mention about that. You never mention anything about that before!" says Mag acting angry even though she her heart was fluttering around.
"Don't be angry my dear, I just want to surprise you." explained YH.
"I'm not. I just don't want you to put your career at risk. What if other people finds out?" said Mag despite that she's actually really happy.
"Okay, I really needs to go now before someone finds out." says Mag walking out the elevator.
Suddenly he pulls her in and gave her a long passionate kiss before letting her go.
"Now you can go. Happy Birthday my love. Drive safe and make sure you call me when you reach home." says YH lovingly.
Mag blushed and left hurriedly before she can't control herself anymore.....
Author's note : This is a belated chapter. Real posting date should be on May 25th. Writing and reading this post whilst listening to TVXQ's new song "Stand by you" is awesome. Do try it. This post seems longer than I thought. Apologies for that. Thanks for reading.

Friday, February 6, 2009
"Happy Birthday!" wishes the crowd after singing the birthday song to the birthday boy, YH.
"Kamsahamida. Thanks for celebrating my b'day with me. This will be my most memorable b'day ever." said YH before leaving for the back stage.
" YH, after this, you guys will have to go to MC Mong's program, and you guys can go straight home. I've put all your gifts in your room. This year, another fan tried to send you a car, a porsche some more. Knew you'll reject it so I returned it and thanks everyone with the thank you video you recorded earlier. And this is the gift from everyone from the company. Nothing much, just something we all would like to give you." said their manager.
"Thanks, hyung. I appreciate this. Thanks everyone behalf of me, ok?" said YH.
"Wei. So how are you going to celebrate tonight? We are going to finish by 8pm and probably reach home by 8.30. Are you going out with Mag? Just be careful of the paparazzi,ok?" reminded JJ.
" I don't really know. She's working till 9 tonight she says, and she didn't really mentioned about celebrating. I guess she might have forgotten." answered YH.
"You've got to be kidding me. I doubt that she'll forget, dun be sad." said JJ.
"No, I'm not sad. Just that she's kind of avoiding me these few days, I'm wondering if something happened. I've tried to ask Sam, but she said nothing special happened and Mag did not mentioned anything to her. Did Dawn tell you anything?" asked YH.
"No. she didn't. Don't worry, I'm sure everything will be fine. It's your b'day, cheer up!" encourage JJ.
"Yea. I hope so." answered YH.
After MC Mong's program.
"Thank you everyone. Good night." said YH to everyone.
"Hey YH, Happy B'day. Here's something for you. Nothing special. Just thought I should get you something." said MC Mong.
" Thanks, Hyung. You shouldn't have. I'm really happy. Thanks again." said YH hugging him.
" Hyung, we gotta go, our driver is waiting. We'll talk to you soon, ok? thanks for tonight." said JJ knowing that YH wishes to go home as soon as possible.
"Ya. Let's go home... I'm so tired and hungry. JJ hyung, make us something when we get home, k?"pestered CM.
"Sure but I think SAND has make something for us tonight as it's YH hyung's b'day." answered JJ.
" Really? I never know they know how to cook accept for Dawn." said CM.
"Sam knows how to cook!" answered YC and JS together. That had created a weird sense in the air.
"Alright. We'll see when we reach home." said YH finally.
20 minutes later....
" ♫♪Happy birthday to you....♩♬" sang the girls as soon as they opened the door. SAND were all there but no sign of Mag at all.
"Happy Birthday, YH oppa!" all the girls wishes him Happy Birthday and one by one hug him with no exception of Dawn and Sam despite 3 pairs of jealous eyes looking and gave him their gifts.
" Here's my gift to you. Open it. I'm sure you LOVE it." said Sam winking at him.
YH opened it and saw a handphone. Looking puzzled, he turned to Sam.
" You'll see. Just hang on to it. You'll love it and will thank me for giving it to you." said Sam.
" Thanks Sam." Said YH still wondering where's the person he's longing to see the whole day. She has been avoiding him for days now.
"♩♬Midohyo~ ♫♪" The phone suddenly rang. It was a text message.
' Go to your room.' the anonymous message says.
"Don't look at me. I'm just doing what I need to do. Just follow the message." said Sam.
YH puzzlingly went back to his room and saw a lot of gifts. Those are all from the fans. On top of his bed, sits a small box. He opens it. It was a key. Seems to be a mail box key.
"♩♬Saranghaey Hi ya ya... ♫♪" the phone rang again. Another text message.
' Go to Mag's mail box and open it" ordered the message.
YH starting to understand what all these is and knows that it was Mag behind all these. He decided to play along with her. He opened the mail box, another small box sitting in it. It's a message.
'Go to the usual place.' it says.
'The usual place? Where could it be...." wondered YH.
"♫♪Happy Birthday to you...♬♩"a voice came out from his back suddenly. It was the voice he has been thinking of the whole day. He turned and see the person he had wanted to see all this while.
"I knew you'll know where to find. Happy Birthday!"said Mag.
"Where have you been all these days? I'm so worried bout you!" said YH almost yelling.
"And I miss you too..." said YH changing his tone immediately.
"I have to avoid you. You know how hard is it to keep a secret from you?" explained Mag bringing up a cake that she had work on the whole day trying to make a perfect one for him.
"You made this? Just for me? " YH was so happy knowing that Mag do not usually enter the kitchen. He's the one who cook usually.
"Why? You don't like it? Fine. I'll throw it away then. I know it's not as good as those you got from your 'LADY' fans. Not as grand as those who give you cars as present." said Mag threatening to throw the cake away.
"NO! This is the best present ever. Thank you. I've been looking forward for this day forever."said YH sensing that some jealousy is in the air and leaning forward to steal a kiss from her cheek.
"What are you doing?! Someone might see this."Mag said blushingly.
"I'm too happy. I don't care anymore. " said YH leaning forward trying to kiss her again...
Mag closes her eyes...

"Good Evening everyone! You are listening to What's latest? on Hitz 104.5! I'm Mag and you can't believe who's sitting besides me now, it's TVXQ! OMG, you guys look so good. How have you guys been? It's been a long time since you guys has been here. You guys wanna say hi to the listeners out there tonight?" Mag asked.
