Lining the major streets of Seoul were Tak-guk-kis to celebrate 62 years of Liberation, which was smack in the middle of the week this year (August 15th). However, as the years go by, less and less people put up flags in front of their houses. Stars are no different. This year, house-dwellers, Rain, Song Hye-gyo and Kim Seung-woo all had flags flying high while no stars living in luxury condos had theirs out (i.e. Kim Hee-sun, Han Chae-young and Jeon Do-yeon). For apartments dwellers, only Lee Young-ae and Soh Yu-jin showed love, but Park Sang-a did not.
On a side note, it is interesting to see where the stars live! Rain and Ms. Song must be raking it in to live in a house in one of Korea’s most expensive neighborhoods -Samsong-dong. Similarly, Han Chae-young lives in an luxury condo in Samsong-dong. Close by in Nonhyun-dong is Kim Hee-sun and Jeon Do-yeon in Apk-jong. Perhaps this explains why I spotted her waltzing in Krispy Kremes at Apku station!
