Jihyeon had her heart set on a photo studio in Gangnam (Seoul) that she had researched and came recommended. The photo shoot would take all day, so we traveled to Seoul on Friday night (the night before the shoot) so Jihyeon could go to a make-up studio about 6am the next morning. Since Jihyeon works nights, we didn't arrive at the hotel until just after 12am.
The hotel was nice and clean.
But this was a little disturbing. In case of fire....
tie rope to bolt, throw rope out window, and scale down the side of the building.
This was nifty. The box in the middle is an intercom service for taxi's. You can request a taxi, and when it arrives it will alert you. No more waiting in crowded foyers with no seats.
The next morning we got up early (but not so bright) and went to the make-up and hair studio. It was in a house (yes, a house! not an apartment or office building) in Gangnam. I later found out the place was worth about 10million dollars. It was a busy hive of activity inside. Make-up artists, hair dresses, their assistants and customers filled every room of the home. Outside there was a nice deck where you could sit and get away from the craziness. Since I am a man and require less work to look good, I got to spend a couple of hours outside relaxing in the peace and quiet.
Meanwhile, Jihyeon was undergoing a major overhall.
Then, it was my turn for a minor tune up.
I don't know what this is, but it looks like some kind of alien mind probe brainwashing device. No doubt it is used by the wedding industry with nefarious intent and is what they secretly use to control bridezillas.
We then had 10 minutes to relax outside before....
getting dressed and....
going to the photo studio.
and we are off and racing. Philby takes the lead.
I don't mean to be captain obvious, but here is the first of the professional photos from the studio. I like it, but I feel it has been over exposed too much. Half the picture is blinding white light.
Jihyeon's parents then arrived and brought some vitamin drinks and sandwiches for me to snack on. Thanks~~~
Family photo time.
No photos allowed.
Don't push me~~~.
Then... more photos.
STOP PUSHING ME!!!
Oh.... why am I getting married to you. Meanwhile, Philby prepares his Kamehameha attack.
Goku is so cool^^.
The jeans and shirts were a gift from Jihyeon's sister.
